So I perched on the side of a skating rink today, returning a PBeM log on BoF01 The Marco Polo Bridge Incident.
Two IJA (Imperial Japanese Army) tin cans drove down the bridge on Turn 3 to stop the Chinese from threatening their rear. As the lead tin cans drove around the woods, a Chinese squad unconcealed and started up with their light machine gun (LMG).
The range was 6 hexes. I needed to roll a 10 to hit. Moving target and the brief appearance added 4 to the dice roll (Case J), the size of the tiny Type 94 tank added 2 (Case P) .. I needed a 4 and I rolled 2,2! PPOONGGGGGGGGG!!!
So I got a hull side hit where the armour’s zero. I needed another 4 or less to kill it (2 rolls of 4 or less is a 2.9% probability).
It was a 1,2 – BOOM! The Chinese LMG took out a Japanese tankette!!
JUST HOW COOL IS TTTHATTTT?
