La Mesnil Frementel, South East of Caen: July 18th 1944 (Scenario Size: Battalion+. Human vs AI Human vs AI for either side or Head to Head) After the 3rd Royal Tank Regiment had passed to the West, it was the Fife and Forfars and 23rd Hussar's turn to run the gauntlet. They emerged from the narrow swept corridor and shook out into a similar formation. They had been held up by the Royal Tank Regiment stragglers and as they moved south, ominously, the defenders started to regroup and now Shermans started to 'brew up' with amazing regularity, especially C Squadron of the Fifes as they were the last to pass. The obstacles in Cagny represent rubble and bomb craters.

The Allies just run over the Axis. Swapping sides in this isn’t much of an option. Ideally this is an Human Axis vs Allied AI. The scenario is dependent on the Allies acting as they did historically. A Human Allied will not do so, however the AI will. Verse the Allied AI this is actually a very enjoyable and challenging scenario. After several plays I achieved a draw as the Axis and found it to be better balanced. Vs the AI this is an 8. I only recommend playing this HTH if you swap sides.

Very challenging scenario, my only gripe is it seems Germans morale are way too high being B in this scenario, they were deemed unfit for duty in the East Front since refit, reason they were in Normandy? Also, artillery is way to potent, routinely knocking out armor every time it hits! This is pretty much will all PzBattles though, not just this scenario.
