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.

From Allied POV the mobility of the Stuarts proves its worth in this scn

Another classic and balanced scenario, ruined by extreme assault.
“The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.”― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
Axis needs to take objectives and be close to or at the exit hexes before the allies are reinforced or they're toast. Allies can slow the axis by utilizing the speed of the stuarts to penetrate and harass the enemy rear.
Resolve then, that on this very ground, with small flags waving and tinny blast on tiny trumpets, we shall meet the enemy, and not only may he be ours, he may be us. --Walt Kelly
Crusaders need to fight toe-to-toe with the panzerwaffe.
Use the mobility of the Stuarts
A challenge for both sides.
Tank vs tank in open desert; The Germans have the range and the British have the numbers. Both sides have infantry as buffers. The tension increases during play thanks to the lack of hiding places and clear skies.
Love this scenario!
