Perfect. Perfect for mechanized charge I plan to conduct. That was the reason to silence AT weapons. Gonna report how it went.

Aaaaaand its done.
I am rather satisfied with casualties, though could have been better. The charge was a success even though one single Nashorn caused deaths of many veterans...

Both town feel after short combat, I was pretty much done by turn 15. Used rest of the time to indiscriminately rape artillery park with my aircraft.

Unfortunately, my total casualties from both battles combined are rather high. Pretty well as for 2 VG companies...

Well can you believe it? We finished the campaign... after all these years. All that is left is the epilogue.

Quote:
March 5th 1945
The war is nearing its end, now it's about the spoils. After clearing the Colmar pocket we are moved to the Italian frontier for our last battle. We are to support our mountain troops around Authion.
The objective: Italian border fortifications in the mountains near Authion. Occupying this territory will allow us to claim Tende and Brigue for annexation during the peace conferences that are soon to come.
This part of the line is held by the Italian Monte Rosa Division and German mountaineers.

- Deploy your troops
- Seize the two forts and the village

Proceeding there this week. Just one request: if it is the last one, please think of something epic for an ending

And if you of course do not mind, we may soon start another one

TBH the true "Finale", as in, the big final battle, was Operation Nordwind. This is an epilogue.

I was opting for sort of epic defensive battle, where I would deploy my entire force at once, for that one final time, and that battle would put a test to all my poor men suffered for last 5 years.

Didn't you already do that during Operation Nordwind?

So... this is how it ends, right?

My troops advanced on the very southern flank of the defences. Chasseours Alpins supported with two platoons of tanks and my entire battalion level reconneissance advanced for the village.

They took with quickly (first 10 turns) and with little losses. Gebirgsjeager did not put up much effective fight and my 105s were pinning them constantly. I was damn lucky tho with Italian 90mm AT guns on the flank. They only managed to immobilize one vehicle and damage the other before they were silenced.

To the south, two companies of my core force deployed and assaulted in pincer movement. Alpini were holding really tight, but again, mortar support and my numerological superiority did the job. I was not using any vehicles on "white" terrain as I considered it impassable. My tanks were supporting from very long ranges and also saved my *** with smoke shots several times. Southern sector fell with considerable casualties on my side. It was around turn 26 when I decided that I will try to assault the final, central position in this scenario.

I was out of 105mm ammunition shortly after, and so most of my mortars were empty. With the last rounds Alpins managed to break through the first ring of Italian defence. Also my recon did very good job, but was decimated in the process. My reserve company deployed from central position to open third line of advance - I was waiting with the deployment too long though, if I deployed liek 5 turns earlier everything would go much quicker. Southern sector shifted and dashed under sniper and MG fire to the main fort. Both companies took about ~30-40% casualties, but managed to fix the southern ring and overcome it with numbers and superior training (few of my units are under 90 experience). Central advance also engaged the remnants of both circes what allowed to advance quicker. Soon, my last mortar deployed and it managed to suppress the final Italian sector (on the flags). With its help, both my core force and Alpins advanced simultainiously.

On turn 40, out of 44 - only after 14 turn relentless assault I would never think I make in time - Lieutnant Du Pontet of Third platoon, third Company, supported with Lieutnant Le Claire of Chasseurs Alpins, hoisted the flag on Authion massif... ending my unit's participation in the war, if I understood you correctly.

Am I right? Is is really over? After all those years?
