Hi guys,


this is the first mission of 4.

We start with a delay mission to stop the first echelon of an attacking tank regiment and to give our bn time to dig in.

In mission 2 we defend with a tank company (situated in the centre of our BN defense, main effort). We will facing the 2nd echelon of the tank regiment.

Mission 3 is the same time but we play the PzGren coy to the left of the tank company from mission 2.

In mission 4 we are the bn reserve (former delaying force) have to resupply and to prepare different task. One task can be a counterattack to destroy the 2nd echelon in front of our bn.


Here the map from mission 2 with the BN plan. You can see our BN is in position. So we will fight together.


Have fun
