Willie had got some new fixed defences which we had to try out here are some of the pictures I took. it was a good battle for my Soviet defenders. The German players each had a platoon (one pioneers), then split up 4 panzer 3s, a sniper team two mortars and a tripod MG team in support. In points terms for Battlegroup two to one for the Germans.
FHQ in a dug out and well out of sight
2 Platoons of Infantry in trenches each 1 sqaud in deep bunkers
2 Maxim machine guns in reinforced bunkers
Single 45mm AT Gun with a loader team
This was a massive 15BR with three officers and one dice of orders. However they fought like Soviet heroes. The plan was not to go onto the firestep until the fascists had crossed the stream 20" away then the AT Gun would move up to fire.

Willie has some great 15mm Germans that we hardly see on the table. the germans rolled up to the stream after they had sent in the infantry to cover the Panzers. Of course they only had 37mm VL guns
|Panzer 3s led the Fascist onslaught|
German mortar fire started to rain down but with no effect.
