I haven't had the chance to play in awhile but I have acquired a new side for my CoC armies...the Russians make their debut thanks to a pretty good deal via TMP member BigJoeDuke. I was also able to add quite a bit of German stuff and a few bits of American armor in the deal. So a big shout out to BJD for hooking me up. And now for the AAR...
Somewhere in East Germany
The scenario is Attack and Defend pitting1 platoon of regular Soviets and a T34/85 vs. 1 platoon of green Germans and a leIG 18
The German JOP's...
The Russian side
Russian scouts put out feelers
Advancing up the right flank
A German lmg team posts up
The Russians decide to try the other way around
Keeping in cover
The infantry gun makes itself known
The Russian scouts are caught in the open
and sent packing
The rest of the Russki squad hunkers down
While their commander brings up some armor
And gets a manuever squad in place
The gun takes out the big armor (an amazing series of rolls, the gun needed a 10 to hit rolled a 12, then rolled 3 hits out of 4 dice while the T-34 rolled 0 saves out of 7!)
But the Russian infantry whittles them down and breaks the gun
A German squad tries to plug the hole
And the Soviets begin to manuever arounded the wooded ridge
Another German squad tries to move up in support
but the exposed team is pinned...
The Germans lose their JOP
And their morale drops to 2, making a victory all but impossible
The final butcher's bill was 10 dead Germans (including the senior leader) to 4 dead Russians (including a junior leader). I hope to start a Soviet camapaign using At the Sharp End soon...so stay tuned!
