The Gembloux Gap, Belgium, 12th May 1940: The Battle of Hannut. Since the beginning of the campaign the Germans are doing their best to make the Allies believe that the main thrust of the German attack is in the plain of Belgium. To reinforce this belief the Germans attack with the 3rd and 4th Panzer divisions from the XVI. AK. On the French side everything is going according to the plans. The Corps de Cavalerie has created a screen in front of the Gembloux Gap to protect the infantry who is supposed to hold the defensive line of the Dyle. General Prioux, commander of the Cavalry Corps, must hold the position for two days. There will be some surprises on both side, the excellence of the Somua S-35 on one side and the effectiveness of the German aviation on the other side. It will be the first tank battle of the Campaign. [Size medium]

Tried unsuccessfully to build engineer bridges. I would have had better luck trying to clear rubble!

My opponent handled his forces with well judged skill and ambushed my advancing Germans. He then attacked them inflicting major losses from which they no longer had the strength to attack. Luftwaffe overated
