IanL Posted April 29, 2016 Share Posted April 29, 2016 The original plan was to have a huge 2 hour battle with two people on the allied side with units coming in from three directions. Sadly we hit the too many orders problem and had to abandon the effort. This new version of the battle is the right hand side of the battle area on a smaller map and for 1 hour. Initial situation The briefing is pretty basic – force your way across the map and open that road! My order of battle is: 3IG HQ: Lt. Col. nathangun CO 4 Coy: Major IanL 2IC 4 Coy: Capt. Fletcher Sniper Section: Corporal Douglas 1 Bren: Private Shelton Jeep: Private Dewer Truck: Private Morrow Forward Observer: Captain Scouts: Corporal Warlaw HMG: Corporal Darlymple Bren detachment: Corporal Porteous 10 Platoon: Lt. Fraser Mortar detachment: Private Makinnon 1 Section: Corporal Anglen 2 Section: Corporal Lear 3 Section: Corporal Cash 11 Platoon: Lt. Judkins Mortar detachment: Private Anstruther 1 Section: Corporal Chattan 2 Section: Corporal Bartlet 3 Section: Corporal Smith 12 Platoon: Lt. Telfer Mortar detachment: Private Gilfallin 1 Section: Corporal Hamilton 2 Section: Corporal Clark 3 Section: Corporal Applegate 2IG 3 Squadron 3 Troop Cruiser Tank Sherman I: Lt. Dillon 1 Cruiser Tank Sherman I: Sargent Ogilvy 2 Cruiser Tank Sherman I: Corporal Kennedy 3 Cruiser Tank Sherman VC Firefly: Sargent Rapier 4 Cruiser Tank Sherman I: Corporal O’Neil Mine Clearing: Corporal Wallace Flame Thrower: Corporal Clayton 23rd Canadian Field Engineer Coy: Major Alarie 2IC 23rd Coy: Capt. Montplaisir 1 Flamethrower Section HQ: Private Dillard 1 Team: Private Harris 2 Team: Private Belanger 1 Platoon: Lt. Forbes 1 Section: Corporal MacMillan 2 Section: Corporal Sepal 3 Section: Corporal Soloman 4 Section: Corporal Moorehead 2 Platoon: Lt. Lampe 1 Section: Corporal Carrol 2 Section: Corporal Kraft 3 Section: Corporal Miner 4 Section: Corporal Lightfoot 3 Platoon: Lt. Speller 1 Section: Corporal Hubbard 2 Section: Corporal Pension 3 Section: Corporal Charters 4 Section: Corporal Cooper 2IG Recce Troop 1 Section HQ Stuart VI: Sargent Colville 1 Light Tank Stuart VI: Corporal Macfadyen 2 Light Tank Stuart VI: Corporal Yorke The map looks like this: Figure 1: Initial Plan 4 Company and 3 Squadron are coming from the south along a road that leads to town. Meanwhile 23rd Canadian Field Engineers and a Recce troop have been following tracks between fields and arrive to the East. From the south 4 Company will move along the road and stop in the woods to get a view of the town – as shown in that first arrow. The second and third arrows are just the current proposal what route they really take will depend on what they encounter. From the East the 23 Engineers will cross at three ford sites at the end of their track and proceed to the forest across the river. The will also adjust their approach based on resistance but I strongly suspect they will be following the woods to get some cover. Some of the brown areas on the map are fields but some are actually managed forests. From the map it is hard to tell which is which hopefully the screen shots will help. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
