West Germans advance

Bottom of Turn One: Soviet forces advance in order to set up near the objective. My Plan was to move my BMP Motor Rifle Coy behind the wooded pond area. From there my infantry would conduct woods clearing before pushing onto the objective.

All in all it was a good match. My plan of flanking right and pushing in when the time was right worked fairly well. I had taken heavy casualties by the time the match had ended. Leopard 2s are tough to crack. Best moment was when my Infantry scored a Leo1 kill with an RPG. Mostly they do nothing and this was the first time they have preformed. Worst moment was when my T72s finally showed up from reserves and missed every shot on the Leo2s flank.
