    New DAR: ncc1701e vs JoMc67

    MINUTE 16 This turn was exciting. To avoid losing my halftrack, I have ordered it to advance a little while I am sending my tank into a search and destroy mission against this armored car. The armored car is indeed trying to destroy some of my men near the halftrack. But, the cavalry arrives... And the unthinkable happens. The Stug III is spotted surely also looking after the halftrack. Meanwhile, one of my squad in the woods on my right wing is firing with a bazooka against the armored car. I think that is what we call a near miss. 😕 Luckily for me, my Sherman has seen the Stug III and is aiming at it. Too late, the Stug III is firing... 😨 But, a micro second later, my Sherman also fires. The two shells are under the green arrow. Boom!!! Boom!!! Stalemate... The Stug III is out of order as well as my lonely Sherman... Exciting indeed 😅

    MINUTE 15 The halftrack starts an area fire on the suspected enemy position. 🤗 It reveals that some people are fleeing. 🎅 The German on my right wing are too far away to provide any kind of support. The 10,5cm round of the turn... No casualty this time. I really think this is one harass mission. And a little surprise, a recon armored car is showing up. And it looks like it is after my halftrack... 😨 Strangely enough, I am observing more suppressive fire than expected and I realize my tank is also after something. Ouch! One of my men was a little too exposed and is hit. Ah and a smoke potting round, my assault is near.
  3. Hey nice advice @Combatintman, I will try this.

    This is strange then because the rounds are failing on my left, then on my right and coming back to left. That is why I am thinking more of a harass mission.

    MINUTE 14 Crossing the road again to reach the house on the left of the screen. This time I am using a Fast command. And, suddenly, one 10,5cm shell drops. Three casualties but the one in the red circle is a little hard to believe. I have replayed the sequence but this is indeed the shrapnel. 😕 In the wood on my left wing, my men are watching while my halftrack is arriving. Hope it will surprise a little the Germans next turn.

    MINUTE 13 A waiting and peaceful turn except few events. The 10,5cm firing rate is about one shell a turn. Question for the experts, at this rate, how long the battery could last? My halftrack is moving full ahead towards its destiny... I open up my tank in order to spot something... a tank may be? Where is his Stug III? This is the question I have since a long time...

    MINUTE 12 On the left wing, I emerge from the woods. The main objective seems calm. Still 10,5 cm around... Is counter battery fire possible to stop those guys !? My smoke screen firing mission is still been planned. 6 minutes to wait before main assault depending on its shape... On the right, strangely enough, even if the commander is hit, the fire mission seems not compromised !? I would like to bring some attention to the rear. Since the beginning, 5th Squad / B Team is providing medical assistance to all the guys that were hit by the Stug III at the beginning. Thanks guys, this is important to keep the casualties low. This is time to move my halftrack to wake up the Germans...

    MINUTE 11 I am waiting for my smoke screen. But, on my right wing, I am taking some fire from the German in the woods in front of my right wing. The company commander is hit !!! The company commander is hit !!! The mortar fire that I have ordered is now compromised...

    MINUTE 10 My plan will be straight forward: I have ordered a smoke screen in the center to cover the advance of my troops in the center and in the right on the main objective in the middle of the map. 8 minutes to wait. I will put whatever fire power I have on the left to destroy the enemy here. I will then move my left wing toward the middle objective. Meanwhile, 10,5 cm continues to rain. Sometimes nowhere, sometimes... 😡 I see the German guys falling back. The suppressive fire has ceased in the left woods at last. I carefully resume my progression in the left woods. The overall situation at the end of the turn.

    Agree, I will detail my plan soon for end game. As usual, I will be short on time. But, I prefer to be short on time than short on men. I am perhaps too cautious but I like my pixeltroopers.

    Hey great, Joe has confirmed, this is indeed 10,5 cm.

    MINUTE 9 Just for you @RockinHarry, a zoom of the crater size... 🙂 Alas, another incoming shell is this time doing much more damage. It remember me that indirect fire was one of the first cause of death during WW2. More on the left in this woods, suppressive fire continues and still no clue of who is firing. No casualties taken. I am moving my tank carefully to a location in reserve slope where I hope it will catch something. The overall situation is not improving. Am I too cautious as a commander guys? 😕

    MINUTE 8 Surprise!!! Some kind of Big Bertha is entering on the battle at this stage. Given the noise of the explosion, I bet for a 155mm shell. I have checked in Ian V. Hogg's book "German Artillery of World War Two" but there are many possibilities. Let's bet for a 15cm s IG 33 infantry gun most probably off map. I am ordering my halftrack and the nearby infantry to run... On the left in the woods, I have made contact with enemy infantry. Small arms firing and one light wounded. Hope they can return fire next turn. The overall situation. My intel is not improving at all. On the left, I am sure of the infantry. The rest remains mainly based on sound detection.

    MINUTE 7 The halftrack is in its starting position once I could have a better intel of what is inside the second (center) objective instead of this lonely tank's sound contact. I am really hoping moving my XO team on the third story of the house, they are already in, will help to spot something. Another tank's sound contact can be heard and I am a little puzzled. So far, two to three tanks, perhaps one halftrack and no sign of lots of infantry. What kind of troops am I facing? Was the Stug III moving like this without infantry support? It would be surprising. The overall situation plus on the right the possible position of his second tank. One of my mortar team restarts firing at that tank's sound contact. Strangely enough, looks like the suppressive fire is decreasing. Will see next turn...
