CoC Campaign Part V

Since the Germans gave ground the next scenario is the flank attack. Both sides are pretty shot up but the Germans have a wild card that allows them to place a bunker and MG42 on the board in addition to their regular support. For their support the Germans take minefields and barbed wire and a Infantry gun. For the American support their is a .30 cal MG and a M4 Sherman.

The German pillbox

A view of the German fortifications

The Americans deploy against the bunker and immediately begin to take losses

The Americans deploy their Sherman but do not support it with infantry...really dumb

The Germans spend a CoC die and take out the Sherman with a short range panzerschreck

The Germans deploy the Infantry gun

And a section of infantry

The American .30 cal comes online...

...and is highly effective
The German squad breaks

As does the infantry gun....

and the German morale

The Americans lose 3 KIA and 2 WIA and the Germans lose 5 KIA and 3 WIA. The stage is set for the final battle!

CoC campaign AAR Part IV

The Germans decide to counter attack and try and push the Americans back. For support the Germans take a Tiger tank and a Pz II. The Americans take a 57mm AT gun  (represented by a 37mm gun until I get my new model). The battle takes place on the same board as the last one...

American side of the board

German JOP's

The Germans make a break for the American JOP and get slaughtered after making some very poor movement rolls

The Germans bring on their armor to deal with the GI's

The American AT deploys

and only manages to damage the PzII before being routed.

The Germans move up with a new section and take out the American JOP

The American section manages to escape after their bazooka takes out the PzII and a new squad deploys to take on the Germans

The Tiger cannot dislodge the new American threat
The German squad is broken bringing the Americans a very close victory!

The Germans lost heavily with 7 KIA and 4 WIA and thus chose to give up ground so they could replenish their forces. The Americans lost 4 KIA and 2 WIA.
