Done and done. I placed you as the Russian Left FG as you stated no preference.

It has been a while since I last could play OL on Vassal and I am glad I can join this one. Someone with better confidence defending against Sam's tactics should take German RFG, I'll play LFG.

I'd like to play. I know Vassal but I've no experience with OL. I (more or less) know the rules. I can play any side.

Well we fought this out today and the Russians could not get on track. In fact, they got run over by tracks and the Tigers ruled.

The Russians were center card poor and so attacked on both flanks. The Russian left could make no headway and was pushed back. A Tiger on loan from the center drove down the road and ranged freely on that flank. It was fired on 9 times over several turns and hit 9 times but all nine rerolls missed.

The German forces on that flank claimed 9 kills for the loss of one unit. The Russian armor burned but the Russian infantry held on bravely.

The Russians did very well on their right killing two elite panzers, two elite infantry and a regular infantry for the loss of one elite infantry and two infantry. They also exited an elite tank on the last Russian turn to make the score there 6 to 3 in the Russian's favor.

The center saw a 2 to 2 kill push. The Russian center advanced late and their tanks rolled up onto the hills but stalled there.

At the end of the German 4th turn the Germans held a 10 to 1 lead. But back to back Russian TFH card plays ordered 21 units and accounted 5 medals and weakened other units. This closed the score to 6 to 11. The Germans last chance to make some noise was on their 7th turn with ARMOR ASSAULT in the center and ASSAULT on their left but could not make any kills in either area. They did manage two kills on their right and the score was at 8 to 13.

I was concerned in the end game as I held all four INF ASSAULTs but little else and having only being able to draw and play two RECONs was worrisome.

I then uncork an ASSAULT on the German right and order 7 units. I kill off two 1 fig infantry (with a 3d AMBUSH whiffing on an Elite Panzer) and a tank while a German infantry is killed on our left. A 1 fig center Russian tank on the hills is missed with 3d and thus our chance to end things there.

But the Russians can only exit a tank off our left baseline to up their medal total to 9.

Our center FG, Boyd then nails a 1 fig tank to end things.

Of our score we got 2 medals from RECONs, two from town control, and 14 kills.

The Russians got one from exiting the tank and 8 kills.

The stats with our listed first:

vs INF 48 to 59
vs TKS 49 to 26
vs ART 33 to NA
vs 88s NA to 00
vs TIG NA to 33 (w/ all 10 reroll hits being misses so 00% there)
