Airborne Bob's panzer goes on turkey shoot..
I spot his Pz IVH sploshing across a ford so I race 2 x T-34/85's to sit on the bridge to have him for breakfast while he's struggling up the bank.
The first T-34 fires and MISSES.
The second T-34 is distracted by a schreck guy on the far bank.
I'm beginning to get a bad feeling about this..
The panzer returns fire and kills the leading T-34 with its first shot.
The second T-34 suppresses the schreck then fires at the panzer but MISSES.
The panzer returns fire (here) and kills it with its first shot..
I race another T-34 over to shoot him in the back while he's still struggling up the riverbank.
Here my T-34 halts at the firing position, (the T-34 wreck next to him was shrecked earlier in the game)
- Can anybody spot my dumb goof?
That's right, I forgot to give the T-34 a two o' clock armour-arc to ensure the gun would be pointing at the panzer before I hit 'Go', and as a result he arrived at the firing position with his gun pointing straight ahead, and it cost him precious seconds - and his life - to traverse it, and he was dead meat before he could fire,duh..
That bleddy panzer (which by the way has a Crack crew) has now single-handedly wrecked 3 x T-34's, almost half my entire force..
As the rampaging panzer climbs dripping out of the ford like some primeval swamp creature, I send T-34 number 4 to deal with it once and for all (remembering to give this one a 2 o' clock arc), and here he halts at the firing position and fires, but like his previous mates, he MISSES!
The Crack panzer immefiately fires back and swats him like a malarial mosquito, damaging his gun and forcing an auto-retreat (inset)
Perhaps the panzer commander is none other than the legendary Macbeth -
"As easy mayst thou the intrenchant air with thy keen sword impress as make me bleed!
Let fall thy blade on vulnerable crests, I bear a charmed life, which must not yield to one of woman born"..
