The_Enigma Posted February 4, 2006 Share Posted February 4, 2006 well this topic idea just spawned itself after I just lost 14 tanks in less then 3 minutes . The plan very simple, 3 wooded passes which open up into 3 towns. 5 Mark IV's (bar 1 platoon which is a tank short) assigned to each pass (as well as 2 other tanks, but they dont take part in this action other then firing smoke rounds). They open fire, firing smoke rounds into the town enterance ahead of them. If you can just picture the road for a second, the fire pattern from the 7 tanks was something as follows. . . . . . . . supporting these smoke barrages was an 82mm mortar (1 for each pass). After a few minutes a pretty good rectangle of smoke has been created. The tanks now have cover upon leaving the woods and into the town where the sides of the buildings will protect them agaisnt enemy tanks. And so off they go, they make it. The next set of orders is for them to leave the cover of the smoke and dart off into the side roads. They will then be able to get the jump on confirmed american tanks which have there backs to them. Before they go however, american infantry appear ... throwing grenades and firing rifle grenades. The tanks leave cover ... AT guns open up. As the Mark IV's make it down side roads and between buildings they take there sweet time aiming and firing there guns ... the Shermans toast them. In less then 3 minutes all 14 tanks have been wasted ... some havnt even fired there guns other then firing the smoke rounds piror to the 'assualt'. Some spend lengthly periods of time just aiming at the shermans ... the shermans reloading several times infact and the mark ivs do not fire. in the end ... i believe this momment qualifies itself as my worse CM momment. So everyone ... what is yours? 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
