After making good the losses suffered in our victory at Planebruch our units moved toward Bad Belzig where they encountered a company of American marines with mechanised and armour support.
Our motor riflemen were able to occupy the outskirts of Bad Belzig whilst enemy infantry infiltrated the towns church and churchyard. enemy armour in the shape of M60s prevented our recce forces from closing with the enemy infantry but the arrival of dedicated ATGW support in the form of our Shturm platoon ensured that the enemy tanks were slowly neutralised. Unlike our recent German opponents US tank crews proved to be brave and despite many hits win the enemy we were forced to await for the arrival of our T64 supports before we were able to completely destroy every enemy tank, they enemy were also brave in attempting to engage us in their jeep like vehicles, these were easily dealt with by our recce elements and the enemy was soon left clinging to the churchyard with his infantry, supported by long range artillery fire. At one point enemy aircraft made a low pass over our tanks but were driven off y fire from our tank commanders AA MGs. sadly as we were positioning ourselves to begin the process of destroying the enemy infantry with tank fire, night fell, wary of our enemies significant close in anti-tank capability we were unable to press our advantage, despite having lost only two tanks, and having destroyed most of the enemies vehicles. The enemy was able to withdraw its surviving infantry under cover of darkness, but we had bloodied the noses of these arrogant imperialist marines
