This post is the third Battle Report of three from the Flames of War Tournament at Phoenix Games (in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada) back in February of 2017. This was just before version 4 was released so the game was played using version 3 of the rules.
In this game, my German forces faced off against Rob’s Americans. He beat me with a 5-2 win. For this game, I was the defender and Rob was the attacker.
On the field, I had my mixed Grenadier Platoon with Weapons Sections and my Jagdpanthers waiting in Ambush. My Wirbelwinds and StuGs were in reserve. Rob started with his entire army on the table.
|To start, my Commander (in his StuG) and a platoon of Grenadiers guarded my objectives. I had Jagdpanthers in ambush and Wirbelwinds and more StuG Gs in reserves.|
|Rob deployed his entire attacking army. He had a horde of American Tanks, some half-track mortar teams and a recon unit.|
|Rob moved his recon unit forward, reducing how close I could deploy my Jagdpanthers to the objective.|
|My Commander was killed in the first round, but my Jagdpanthers took out almost an entire platoon with just one round of shooting.|
|Rob brought smoke down on my Jagdpanthers using his Mortars. My Jagdpanthers had to move up anyhow to defend the objectives, so I was okay with this action.|
|These are his Mortar units that hit my tanks with smoke. Not bad work at all! Well played Rob.|
|I moved up my tanks and now both objectives are covered by my Jagdpanthers.|
|Rob’s American Army is now starting to feel the pain from the Heavy German guns pointed their way.|
|That said, there are still plenty of American Tanks left.|
|But the Germans have a Demon on their side! 🙂|
At this point, things were a little tense, but I felt I was doing well. Then the Americans returned fire!
All of a sudden, all of my tanks (except one) exploded. It felt hopeless, but the StuGs could still turn the tide of the battle.
The StuGs came to the field, but it was too little too late. Rob’s tanks overwhelmed the assault guns easily.
|That little armoured car on the left is credited with killing this StuG. Crazy!!!|
|Notice that I did get Rob’s Armoured car, but I lost the game.|
|Congratulations goes out to the American player for a 5-2 win by way of player elimination!|
I hope that everyone enjoyed this Flames of War Tournament Battle Report.
Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
