Ok so here's the scoop . I'm Drunk. Turn one I killed the enemy commander. That's it. my arty ranged in but hit nothing. German turn one. Their Air support killed my tanks on the right flank minus my commander and my T72s that advanced. I also lost my aa and recce bottom turn one. Turn two. I Killed leao one section on the right flank and leo 1 section on the right flank..
Turn 3 I fire at infantry on the right and things on the left.
My right flank is assaulted by infantry. My tanks die. My commander is left on the right flank.
My infantry kill some leo 1s but its not enough the enemy wins. Gepards and leo 1s swarm my left flank. Its all over.
