Having spent some “quality” time away from the front, I returned to my command fresh and ready for action.
Given the orders of high command to attack, I decided that I would use the area around the farm as a staging area for the assault. Knowing that West German armor is in the area, I knew they would probably go for the long range gun battle of attrition. A hard prospect for us having only 6 T64s available form the motor pool.
The objectives high command has set for us are up on the high to our right and over in the parking lot of some burger/pizza business. As the men are growing tired of in field rations, I suspect they will be most motivated if we go for the burger joint in hopes of liberating generous helpings of bourgeois McBurgers and Fries.
With the Leopard 2s smoking, the West Germans are wondering where their reinforcements are. Their Tornados and another platoons of Leopard 2s are desperately needed it would seem.
He brews up poor Ivan's tank but otherwise damage is minimal. The Storms make quick work of this Leopard I.
