Free French Speed Bump
Chris and I got to try out our 2nd escalation league armies. Chris had an
Italian Carri company my motorcycle infantry and artillery in support.
I had Senegalese du
Chad with 4 platoons of motorized infantry some light guns and a load of recon
trucks and armored cars. We did the hasty attack and since I was defender half
my men were off the board you can see my deployment to the left.
Things started off fairly well with one of Chris' Motorcycle platoons
running up to range of one of two of my HMGS. Chris said he didn't see them and
took some devastating hits reducing his platoon to 3 leaderless stands. Chris
has always been quick to adjust to set backs and he quickly launched an attack
on the other flank using his tanks with motorcycle support to right hook me and
set himself up for a very successful assault. His tanks assaulted my front
while the motorcycles moved in behind me. While his tanks were not terribly successful
I failed the moral roll and caught between the two fires I lost most of that
platoon. My luck with reserve rolls was bad and Chris wiped out most of the
combat recon platoon that did show up with well aimed artillery. (and bad saves
on my part). I did shoot down both of Chirs' Falcos when they showed up.
