With much talk centering on CMFI and the upcoming (hopefully soon) release, I played out a scenario that had some great action.  I thought I would share it.   It is December 6, 1943, 2:

tank  in french color but American-made it's tough !!!

Quick battle meeting engagement, playing as Germans. Several tries before, and the US always won the tank duel. Also this time my Pz IV tank crew had bailed out, with one sherman still on the hunt. But I was granted 5 off-map mortar assets, and the two command teams in the center just managed to take a peek and direct the mortars. Mortar casualties were 100. US forces surrendered.

Excerpt from a PBEM match> Saved by the Tac AI.

Due to the threat of German armour, company commander and his XO decide to retreat.

In the process of pulling back, the XO is ordered to put some HE rounds on a particularly pesky lmg team.

But, the XO spots the Panzer 4 and is now in a dilemma. The commanders makes a correct call and fires at the Panzer 4.

Panzer 4 is knocked out, the crew bails out. Radio operator/bow machine-gunner is not among them.

Talking to my opponent, I concluded that both of us issued orders to our tanks that contradict the situation at hand. In this case, my gunner was simply faster.

Yet another PBEM concluded.

I played as the US Army. My opponent decided to experiment with his armor, hence the lopsided results. My reaction was simple: Nyet, comrade. This is how you use armor.

Technically, I lost one and a half tank, cause one of my M 10 was penetrated by a Panther. These are the results.

Here are some more images.

This Panther was bogged down by harsh terrain, the crew was bailed out by an M 10 shot to the commanders cupola. Subsequently, it was engaged several more times, all ricochets, until one bounced from the turret armor right into the radio operator/machine-gunners opening. For good measure, another round was put into it, partially penetrating the turret.

This Panther was destroyed in an attempted flank charge (best I can gather from what I could see). Lower front hull penetration, followed by a partial penetration of the turret.

None of my units really stands out in unit kill count, it was a combined effort after all. But, my tank company XO is worth mentioning. Destroyed a tank, killed some infatry, took over command in the middle of the battle after the CO was killed. (in the background a destroyed Panzer IV)

Some images of clusters of destroyed enemy infantry.

Even the enemy KomBat was heavily wounded.

It is no surprise, cause this is the group that awaited and engaged them.

Crossing the street was also very dangerous.

With regard to the shell ricochet from the turret into the co-drivers position, that early model Panther does not have the "chin" armor.

It was Panther A Mid and I was surprised it happened. Been playing CMx2 games for years now, first time I saw it happen. It was very pleasing to see RICHOCHET INTO Opening!

But, to conclude this PBEM session. Remember that part where I said tank company XO took over command. Well this was the company CO, a certain Captain Grammont. 😉

He died heroically, engaging enemy Panthers and buying time for M10's to take positions.

@Battlefront.com Sorry man! I tried my best... 😄

Perhaps this explains the delay to the R2V release?
