Unrealistic terrain that channelized the Allies into kill zones.

In my opinion tank balance made this difficult for allied attacker to win.
turn based H2H with CMBN, CMRT, CM Black Sea, CMSF2. Game engne v4.

This was a really unbalanced scenario IMHO as 3 x Panthers vs 3 x regular Shermans is a mismatch at the best of times. Throw in the fact that the Shermans don't arrive for quite some time, there are only three bridges to defend and the Germans also have lots of arty and it is truly mission impossible for the Allied player. Having 4 x Shermans & allied mortars from the start, cutting Panthers down to 2 and reducing German arty assets to only the onboard mortars would even up the sides and improve the battle a fair bit.

Defense is very static in the early stages but the attacker (Allies) can choose among a number of different avenues of approach, and no prepositioned defense can adequately cover them all. Unable to judge playability or balance as opponent surrendered without mounting a major assault. Am guessing balance is slightly pro-Axis since the attacker does not seem to have much armor support.

The scenario is balanced, but both sides need to think well about the right tactics, weighing their own advantages and weaknesses.

For Allied:
Allied tanks must support their infantry in advancing it without entering the fight against the Panthers. Actively use the smokescreen.
Double superiority in the infantry gives the Allies a good chance to win. Take care of your infantry from mortar fire. And don 't hurry! Regularity and accuracy!

interesting map and could be open to the luck of war but I found it reasonably easy to close off any chance for my opponent to get over the river.
