Re: Campaign Scenario Setup Help - France
That was... tough.
Last thing I expected was well planned blocking position, I was more ready to chase. 1 Cie got into serious trouble straight in the beginning and I had to send 2 Cie through the north-western approach to the village. Street fighting itself went well and I managed to block German maneuver and also eliminate German column, but this cost me a lot of my tanks and vehicles. My casualties are relatively high, 4 tanks down and entire mechanized recon decimated.
At least FFi and Brits managed to do surprisingly well. I deployed them near the road to the north, in case any of German units would slip through. Again, I did not expect 2 Panthers and AA battery over there. FFI approached unnoticed at first and brilliantly eliminated the AA. Aircraft killed one Panther and damaged the other, that was later eliminated by close infantry assault. Not only I secured that approach, but also sent in patrols on the other side of the stream and - with air support - destroyed most of 7,5mm battery there. I also discovered 6 mortar tubes nearby and took them out.
In the end however losses were high and German straglers are still hanging in the area. One part of the road is still not secured, but I generally got most of it and took my objective.
