Battle group Klink
Strum Learder, Maj Klink
21st Panzer Div
France, 1944


While the Rest of the Division was defending. I was ordered to take the Strum-tiger element and make a flanking attack on the enemy's soft spot. A disaster. We had moved along a forest trail that bogged down 1 of my 4 Assault guns After emerging from the woods I formed a line to advance only to have another of the heavy's bog down. It was then that a mobile unit of 5 Sherman's and a armored car hits us. We returned fire but couldnt match the roving tanks as my 3rd Assault gun broke down. I waved to Bail out to the others as my Gun went up in flames. Bailing out I ran for the woods and out 1/2 track and Volkswagen command car.

Is that one of the Combat Missions, carrick?


The older I get, the more I realize I don't need to be Han, Luke or Leia. I'm just happy to be rebel scum...

Yes, that's Combat Mission.

Final Blitzkrieg I reckon, due to the snow?

Nice! I have the older version (Beyond Overlord) as one of my laptop games. It's a minor interest of mine so I haven't really been willing to cough up the full price for the new one. You seem to be killing it, though! salute

Been fun , I will probably try CM Shock force next Although I would love a game that has the Cold War Idea of the Russian Armored pouring thru the Gap into Germany.

Shock Force 2 is good, but with the dissimilar forces it can be a bit one sided at times. Depends on the scenario of course. It's worth a go if you dig modern stuff.

Have you had a look at Armored Brigade? A different sort of game than Combat Mission but might scratch that itch.
