The day belongs to the Bundeswehr!

The battle began hard and was a bloodbath all the way through. The lighter Leopard 1 company trying to push on the Soviet objectives and claim the day. The Gepards did some killing and the Leopard 1s have gained a newfound respect from myself and the enemy general as they have the ability to threaten anything if they are flanked. The Soviets came hard off the top and threatened a quick victory for them but the dice decoded to support the NATO cause and either prevented my units from being vaporized or allowed me to pass my saves. This game could have went the complete other way as he went hard and almost was able to smash me turn three ( luckily the dice were on my side). I had to break the one flank which was hard and if possible, avoid frontal contact with the Soviet MBTs. It was a total hit and run mission with the Germans getting the V only after some intense firefights and lucky save on our part. Looking forward to our next games Comrade Mask!
