Next one up in our Bocagefest is another one by George Kelln. The Americans were still trying to breakout of the neverending Normandy bocages. This time they need to clear a road from the north to the south in 7.5 turns. The difference here from the last scenario is that there are now 3 Panthers and they are mobile (*shudder*). Oh, there’s also this big 81mm ROF3 mortar that, my opponent gleefully reminded me, can be dismantled and loaded onto a Panther. Sure enough, the mortar scored a critical hit firing through the trees at a Sherman moving behind a Bocage!
.. and the world went quiet for a moment as it rolled slowly to a stop.
We have Brazilians in Northern Italy, April 26 1945. They are to capture 5 out of the 8 buildings on the map in 6.5 turns. The map has the buildings split up, 4 to each side. The Germans have 3 Italian AB41. The Brazilians have these really nice M8 Greyhounds as well as 3 Shermans, one sporting a 105mm howitzer.
Your pretty common M4A1.
M4 with a 105mm Howitzer!! This thing has S7, WP9 & sM8! Should be able keep them smoked for a little while.
Fine, it’s OT and not the most well suited in an urban environment. However, this sweet little car has Cannister shot (C7) aside from FP8 from its CMG & AAMG. Its 36 MPs & urban pave roads yells “go anywhere shoot anything”.
I finally get to play one of the most oft played ASL classic, the first scenario in Beyond Valor: 1 Fighting Withdrawal. I see almost 600 games reported on ROAR!
I got the Finns and my new-ish opponent got the Russians and the balance – ie the Russians do NOT suffer from ammo shortage. The Finns need to exit more VPs than the Russians in 7 turns!
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.
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.
