Great scenario that highlights the use of the combined efforts of recon, tanks, and IFVs.

 

The terrain is a good selection; a nice mix of small villages, wooded areas, and open fields. Certainly enough to make you think about HOW you're going to employ your mixed force. 

 

Ben also did a great job with the enemy and constructing a realistic defense with a layered forces and interlocking fields of fire between elements. 

 

This is another scenario where I wish Steel Beasts had playable infantry.

As is, clearing through the woods is risky - your [SB] infantry stand no chance against the stationary infantry defenders and you take a massive risk by attempting to use your IFVs to clear. Maybe one day.

**NOTE** I actually downloaded and played this from the scenario pack ben created, but downloaded again so I could leave a review here 😄

 

Played through this one this evening, really gripping battle and very tense having to carefully recon and watch every bend and patch of woodland. Took some doing, but keeping the Marders close to the troops and moving as a platoon really helped along with identifying and dropping mortars on positions found with recon up front.

 

Took about 2 hours to get this done, because I was a bit slow, but I felt I needed to go slow because of the terrain\woodland, so I think the caution is warranted.

 

Ended up losing 2 Leopards, 2 Fuchs and about 5 pixeltruppen for a score of 92, so I was pretty pleased with that result, despite the loss of the Leopards hurting a little.

 

Absolutely loved every minute of this and I highly recommend it!
