It’s July 25 1944, the 83th Infantry Division “Ohio”, tried to pushed through a bocage area held by a few SS squads and some REALLY good guns. They are to push from the green dotted line to the red dotted line with 37VPs (minus German CVPs) in 7.5 turns. The action came hot & heavy on Turn 1 where all German HIP units (apart from the Raketenwefer were revealed and the “Ohio” lost 3 out of 8 AFVs ..
This is one of the more popular Friendly Fire scenarios. It’s Poland, September 1939 and the Poles launched an offensive against a German flank. The Poles win if 6 or more German squads equivalents are eliminated or captured. Each wooden building containing => 1 Polish squad equivalent equates to a German squad eliminated.
This scenario takes place in Greece, 13 April 1941. The British HQ section met up with numerically superior numbers and had to fight a delaying action while reinforcements came in. The Germans win in 13 turns if they control 4 or more of the 5 multi-hex buildings on the mapboard to the upper right.
OQF, as you know, stands for “Ordnance – Quick Firing”, and that it does. It’s a ROF 3 40L AT Gun in ASL. According to “Allied Artillery of World War Two” by Ian V. Hogg, this Vickers designed gun rests on 3 arm platform – 1 being the tow leg with 2 others that fold up. Once it’s unlimbered, the wheels swung up off the ground. “Screw jacks at the end of the three platform legs could then be operated to level the equipment.”. This allows a quick traverse through 360-degrees. I once had a pair of these sitting in the middle of a long straight road in a PTO playtest. They went into a terrifying rate tear that decimated an IJA tank column!
You are going to see a lot of bocage country. We are going to play the whole of BFP Operation Cobra front to back. We already did BFP14 Opening Phase, so this is the second one ..
Oi .. we are playing in the rain this time. Heavy rain that adds +1 LV every 6 hex. That’s also why all our VASL screens looks .. well, rainy.
The 9 squads of Queen’s Victoria Rifles are rushing in to grab 6 buildings out of 8 from 5 squads of Germans. There are of course 5 AFVs helping the Brits out against the 3 German ones, well, 3 German AFVs AND an AT gun.
