This is the second week running my opponent has brought Soviet Lend Lease Tanks – this time I was playing Lord T and his 21 strong Sherman & Lee tankovy army.
Scenario was Cauldron with the Soviets defending – although you couldn’t tell from looking at the board.
Lord T push his Shermans & Lees hard on my lone Panzer IV platoon (the other being held in reserve)
I would have much preferred to engage with the Shermans and Lees at long range, but the advancing Soviet armour pushed hard to close the range and were rewarded with the destruction of the first Panzer Platoon
My reserves arrived as the first platoon was destroyed, unfortunately they didn’t last much longer
After moving on, and attempting to engage with the Lees, my Panzer IV Fire was completely ineffective. Despite trying to use some concealment, the return fire from the Lees found their targets.
6-1 win to the Soviets
