Overview:
The 4th Armoured Brigade, probing northeast of Gabr Saleh, was driving a German recon unit before it. The Afrika Korps at last reacted, quickly forming several units of the 21st Panzer Division into Kampfgruppe Stephan which set out to investigate the reports of the British tanks. The Kampfgruppe located the tail-end regiment of the 4th’s and attacked. Cries for help brought the 5th RTR which arrived before dark and immediately counterattacked. . .

2017-12-30(D) David Garvin vs John Stadick British winI malf'd a total of 4 AFV main guns in this one after I started out hot, eliminating 3 of his Stuarts and immobilizing another. He went for an ESB and of course stopped his tank. Victory was mine! Then my guns all jammed. Ha! But John was skilful and got in behind those tanks (which I had put into motion in order to keep them alive long enough to fix their guns, or so I hoped) and of course the sun blinded me. My last survivor was the 9-1 AFV leader who went down in a blaze of glory. Great game by John!
2017-12-27(A) David Garvin vs Ian Tuten British winGiven the sun blindness, I went for both flanks. Initial gunnery by the Germans was both accurate and deadly. I tossed some SD to try to obscure his shots and that combined with my burning Stuarts was enough to keep me alive. In his subsequent volley, I was able to survive with enough tanks to press the attack and ended up starting to take a toll on his armor. In the end, I was able to push through and get the Casualty DVPs by turn 3 to secure the victory.
2017-10-07(D) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best British winNice change of pace scenario with just tanks in a straight up gunfight. Dan's Stuarts came hard in a schwerpunkt towards the German left. The Germans were strung out in a long line across the map. Initially, my Germans took the early lead by taking out 5 of the Stuarts, but once the Stuarts got in close, it was curtains for the Afrika Korps. Great win for Dan!
2017-05-16(D) Bill Brodie vs Steve Bond German winBritish drove into a hail of accurate fire. While he did bounce back and take out a few panzers, the initial losses made it impossible for him to win the gun battle.
2016-09-19(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Sebastiano Caltabiano German winAs I suspected the scenario is a dicey affair weighted towards the German (55-60% I think). As British I was able to hit a single german AFV once in two turns despite point blank fire and didn't do any harm. In response I got 8 stuarts destroyed by 3 snakes, and 8 other hit (yes there there were 1 miss, 2 shocks and 8 killed AFV). In 1 and half turn it was all over. Won't play it again, it's far worse than I expected.
