Hi,

FIRST CONTACT! Turn 6.



The Americans crossed the second bridge.

2 M-46 appear on the road. The PT-34 shoot but miss. An M-46 create a smoke screen.

The PT-34 go back and other T-34 take defensive position.

M-46 is superior to the T-34/85, I'm little bit nervous...

Our 82mm mortars started firing around the bridge.

Our 76mm FG and 120mm mortars still firing.

Thank you,

-Luc-

Hi,

Turn 6-7:

Many american tanks (M46 and M24) appear in front of our T-34/85; they are easily destroyed...

Some american 81mm motars start firing the rear of our columm.

We spot the smoke and put our 152mm D-1 on them.

Turn 8:



Surprise! More tanks (M4A3E8) from the south. Our FO must retreat.

Turn 8-14:



Few tanks (mostly M26) try to force the way again from west without success.

Soviet forces push foward: unfortunatly a dammaged M26 hit a T-34/85!

The tank of Ml. Serzh. Bezugliy explode... no survivor.

Our infantry reach our tanks and take defensive position; some american soldiers are coming.

American mortars fire less. Our CB work well.

Thank you!

Hi,

Thank you Runequester and Oche!

Turn 15-20:

We find 2 more M26 during our advance.

Hopefully, because they are on harsh terrain, they cant fire and soon, they are destroyed.

Our 82mm mortar start firing US infantry along the river

Their 60mm mortar start firing too.

Soviet infantry take few casulties.

Soviet forces keep their position and reinforcement from the back (1 mot inf platoon) are arriving.

American lost a lot of men and equipent, I'm confident...

Soon the front will broke, I'm sure...



Thank you,

-Luc-

Hi,

Turn 21-35:

OH!? ... bad surprise... but they seem stuck...



The fight is hard, american soldiers show determination.

We lost 3 T-34/85:

Major Baturin; hopfully 3 crewman survived.

Ml. Serzh. Zaborniy, Leiten. Lisin and their crews, unfortunatly died.

AT weapons of US soldiers did a better work than tanks...

Finally, after a lot of american, and soviet casulties, we crossed the bridge.

Soviet are regrouping and preparing for the next operation step.



Thank you,

-Luc-

Hi,

Turn 36-44:

US tanks are stuck and, we decide to let them their...

Few US soldiers still fighting along the road, but nothing serious.

US HQ is found on the road! The T-34/85 take care of them.



Soviet forces reach the second bridge.

Few US mortar can be targeted and that's what we do.

Unfortunatly, a lone Bazooka shoot and destroy a ZSU-16.

Soon, all flags are ours and we win the fight!





Thank you,

Lightbulb Re: CCCP vs NATO long campaign (1948-1991)

Hi,

My analysis of the battle:

Despite their superior quality and quantity, Americans misused their potential. Their frontal assault was a complete failure.

Their tanks (M26 and M46) were better than ours and could have been a serious problem for us. We believe that a lack of synergy explains the failure.Their infantry were also better. Often, their results were higher than ours, and despite that ours positions (top of hill) was better. Thus, they were able to approach and destroyed many of our tanks.Our infantry also tends to run away often and stuck under mortar fire. Their artillery, even fewer than ours, has been well used.

Our biggest problem is the transport of infantry. The trucks cant follow the tanks. Our tanks are becoming vulnerable.

During the next battle, we need to use better both, even lossing a tank quality, the movement.

Overall, we will maintain our strategy seems to be effective. Bombing, recognize, concentrate forces, bombing and attack.

Is it the Blitzkrieg?

Thank you,

-Luc-

In essence Blitzkrieg involves poking a hole in your opponents front line then spreading out behind his front line and destroying support and supply units to make the rest of his units/positions vulnerable. The second (behind the opponents lines) part is the real "destruction" caused by the Blitzkrieg type attack.

Given that WinSPMBT deals primarily with front line type units rather then support types you're performing the "hole poking" part of a Blitzkrieg but not the "rampage behind the lines" part.

Hi,

Location: Starsbourg?;
Date: 1948/08;
Enemy: France;
Mission: Assault;
Visibility: 20;
Turns: 90;

No big change in my TO&E:

HQ support infantry is now an SMG section,

In support I have:

1X RECCE plane
3X IL-10 with 100kg bombs.

Map of battlefield:


Soviet task force:


4 RECCE section will follow the dirt road.

PT-34 and T-34/85 follow them 250m behind and will be ready to begin the fight.

Infantries will stay 250m behind tanks in their trucks.

***

At the first crossroad, the force will turn to the south and after, to the west in direction of the hill.

T-34/85 BTU and a platoon of infantries will secure the crossroad.

The hill is our first objective; this is highest point and from there, we will dominate the situation...

Our mortars and guns will prepare the battlefield for tanks and infantries.

Thank you,

-Luc-
