Em's elite platoon walks into a hornet's nest! The Americans, armed with only rifles and grenades, were so ready for them.
Bear in mind that I designed this game to discourage stacking. Stacking offers no advantage beyond freedom of movement. And... "all units in a targeted hex lose an equal number of strength points when that hex is attacked."
In all my solo games, I don't stack at all. So I didn't realize just how bad it can be!
Your 2 half squads in T5 moved to R5, making contact with my squad in the objective hex Q5. I rolled a 6 for opportunity fire and fired 1d6=5. 5 +1 ldr, +1 not moved, +2 distance, -2 cvr, -1 elite =6. Since your half squads were only 6/6, and they were both in the target hex, they were both destroyed!
Then your 2 half squads in S5 moved to R4, making contact with 2 of my squads! I rolled for opp fire for my squad in Q4 and got another 6. They fired 1d6=1. 1 +1 ldr, +2 distance, -1 cvr, -1 elite =1. So both your half squads were reduced to 5/6.
Your men returned fire, rolling 1d6=2. 2 +2 distance, -2 cvr, -1 return =1. My squad in Q4 was reduced to 11/12.
Then my squad in Q5 opp fired again with another roll of 6! And their combat roll was also a 6! That was even better than their roll that wipe out your first two half squads, so they completely wiped them all out in one turn!
Your tanks did much
better. Unlike my squads, my tank didn't opp fire at all. Your crippled tank rolled 3d6=2,3,3. 3 -2 half strength =1, and my tank was reduced to 7/12. It returned fire with 1d6=1. 1 -1 elite, -1 return =-1, so there was no effect.
Your strong tank rolled 3d6=6,4,2. No DRMs applied in this case, so my tank was reduced further to 1/12. It returned fire with 1d6=3. 3 -1 elite, -1 return, -2 half strength =-1, no effect.
Unfortunately, your tanks can't win this game for you. Your leader has no chance by himself. Would you like to restart? I'd be happy to switch sides with you.
Just for fun, I made an initiative roll for turn 5, and you finally get to initiate! And you activated all your remaining units.
