The scenario was a run for control of a bridge '44 Eastern Front. Rich and I were the Germans while Bob and Greg were the red hordes. The game starts off with recon units from both sides approaching the river.
|View from the German side, bridge in the distance.|
Sd Kfz 250/9. Rich decides to go left around the hill while I attempt a crossing of the river between the gap between the trees on the right.
|The infantry stands behind are actually riding in the half tracks..|
|An infantry squad lost too!|
|At the river.|
|A lend lease M2 waiting to nail anyone crossing the river.|
|The Puma in over watch position.|
|Quick kill by my Pz Mk IV H.|
Greg attempts a run across the bridge with one of his T34's. My Pz Mk IV H got off the first shot and managed to take it out.
|Russian armour at the river.|
German reinforcements consist of 3 Pz Mk IV H's and 3 Stug III's Rich puts a Mk IV and a Stug on the hill while one of my Mk IV's gets nailed on the road. My other one had it's main gun knocked out and the crew decides to drive off in the other direction.
|Crossing on mass.|
And how did the ASL adapted rules work? Fine accept for one issue I brought up. Masses of tanks and infantry could fire through each other at different targets. Sure they got a negative modifier added to their combat results but I found this feature annoying. I mean how can one tank fire over another friendly tank? The line of sight was blocked. Besides this issue the game moved quickly and was challenging.
