Thursday nights game and a first outing for the Germans,
the British provided the opposition in this training exercise
British defensive line
German panzer grenadier battalion outflanks the British defensive position
Lynx on a Tank busting mission
Leopards redeploy, head on into dug in chieftains was proving too tough
helicopters break the left hand thrust
British pull back as their flank is turned
Right flank battalion redeploys to meet the threat on the left whilst the left battalion retires to form up as reserve
Another enjoyable game
Modern spearhead is alike WW2 spearhead is alike great war spearhead.
There is definitely a learning curve to using the modern units
More gems from the rulebook:- most platoon that fire from cover are then spotted out to 12", ATGW when fired from cover are spotted out to 18"
AA platoons may fire at any aircraft, but units with AA stats may only fire if they are the target of an air attack.
We had a problem with the points system before we started as the chieftains were cheaper than the leopards and had a better stat line, so we recalculated the forces using the stat line for the total
DEF+CED+AT+AI+AA( hs not added)+ATGW
This gave us a fairer result as some units seem to have good stat lines for very few points
This system will need to be tested but I think with the Nation multiple will give us a more balanced game.
e.g. T72A :-24.3 points, Chieftain IX :-37.4 points
