The way this worked out, the Americans have a definite advantage. Although the King Tiger and the 75MM half-track were not able to contribute much as the King neither moved nor shot and the 75 apparently had no HEAT ammo (he blasted my 105 Sherman 3 times with little effect) – the 75 however did blast a bunch of my men I imprudently ordered into his LOS. My opponent made the most of his units and was always ready to resist until the very end.
As usual with these games, the outcome had a lot to do with luck – if the German anti-tank armored vehicles made more of an impact, if the Germans had more Panzerschrecks. If this had been a mostly infantry v infantry fight it would be very tough – the Waffen SS fought hard. I was sure of victory until my 105 Sherman was blasted with two fausts and taken out – that was a big blow and if I had lost it any sooner, it may well have impacted the outcome.
All in all, though a great game to fight – I thought I still faced a hard task to take the last 2 Victory locations, when the enemy surrendered.

An interesting and challenging scenario with a nice realistic map. Pro allied for sure and would recommend an experienced player took the German side to hold out as long as possible and make the US earn the victory.
