Gabr Saleh, 40 km WSW of Sollum, Libya: [Best played against Human opponent] The day before, 21st Panzer had engaged fast British tanks north of Gabr Saleh. Cruewell worried that the British were in strength to the east of Tobruk, and 15th Panzer was ordered to locate and engage the British armor in that area. As the sun set, the 8th Panzer regiment ran into tanks of the 4th Armoured Brigade moving north from Gabr Saleh in what, at first, appeared to be a repeat of the previous day's action. The only difference was that today, help was coming for the British in the form of the 22nd Armoured Brigade, redirected from its abortive attack on the Italian Ariete division at Bir el Gubi.
