The Allies appear to be lacking heavy weapons to suppress the German HMG positions.

Overall, a neat concept and mission for bothh players. However, given the map size and terrain, the US player ends up advancing over nearly open ground for several hundred metres against a couple entrenched MG42s sitting on high ground. Unless the Axis player makes a big mistake placing the MGs, it is little more than a turkey shoot as the MG42's range vastly outclasses anything the US player has. Battle would be much more balanced with the Coy MG det (2 x HMGs & HQ) added to provide an adequate firebase. Ideally, ramp up the forces to platoon of defenders and a Coy attack and this would be a really good battle.

This is more of a small tactical exercise.

Well...I prefer battles with a balance of infantry, armour, and arty with a challenging map full of terrain variety. This battle has none of that, unfortunately. And so, IMO, I found this one rather boring. It was more a "training" mission to me than an actual battle.
