At Launois east road

Major Gefa, French army: " Launois was pretty blocked from east with 15 panzers pounding defencive allied positions. After 2 failed attempts to establish a def Atg position I decided a long drive from Chilly to cut off the storm of panzers out of eastern fb. Evaded succesfully ea cover and reached east road from north after 14 mins drive. Walked another 1km and found a perfect spot facing SSW with ideal concealment. An unsuspected Stug III B was the first victim to my atg."

The battle of Namur

Oberfeldwebl Johnnyza, reported from the battle of Namur: " After setting off from the FB with KGW, the Panzer colomn set up NE overlooking the NE Army base to interdict moving supplys. Within 3 minutes i had lost both tracks, my commander, driver, 4th and engine dead. Managing to protect 3 MSP's and infantry for over 50 minutes, i had been sapped, grenaded and shelled heavily, but yet still held out to support more infantry advance to get the East CP. Called it a night when all my ammo had drained out and no mobile spawns we're near.
Props to everyone at Namur who had a good fight S!

Making a stand at Lier

Colour Sergeant Lowe reported: " Leaving the Barracks I recieved a fleshwound, and turning South, spotted a sniper high in the church tower. Setting my sights to 300m, I hit him with my second shot.
Moving out of the Army Base through the East murder hole, I spotted an Axis soldier, who recieved a bullet from my rifle to his chest.
Heading South, I managed to creep up upon two riflemen in the top of the red brick building to the SE of the Army Base, and despatched both with rifle shots.
Moving across the road to the South, I approached a house and set myself up at a window. Spotting a lone Axis soldier coming out of a sidestreet I shot him, and moved quickly towards the City CP. Finding it empty I began to cap the CP when I spotted an Axis soldier looking directly at me.
Dropping to the ground, the CPs cap bar disappeared as I moved too far from the radio. Leaving the CP by the South door, I ran across the road and into the Church, looking for my would-be assailant.
Climbing the church tower, I found him laying at the top, looking directly over our Army Base. I finished him with my combat knife, and sighted my rifle at an MG34 that had been set up in the red brick building in which I had already killed two Axis soldiers.

I hit the machinegunner with my second bullet and left the church, heading for the houses that flanked the Southern part of the East-West road. There I pciked off several more Axis soldiers before leaving for the South-Western Control Point (Leir-Antwerp). Just as we had captured the CP, my soldier recieved another wound and the fellow infantryman inside the CP was shot by an Axis soldier with an MP40. I dispatched him with my rifle, shooting him in the gut.
Feeling that my mission had been completed, removing those sniping into the base & recapturing a CP, I returned to base."
Started Dec 01, 2009 in a French Rifleman from Lier. Ended with 10 kills and 0 captures.


AHC calls for a retreat

MrToad reported from the frontlines: " At 12:30 Eastern, The AHC in charge desides with a new brilliant strategy. Pull away from EVERY front line town so that Axis can only softcap, but the Axis wouldn't be able to place a Hard AO first, so the game would stop."

Despite some eyebrows beeing raised on both sides and allied soldiers trying to convince the allied commander that the strategy would not work the frontline was left undefended and while british and french brigades rushed westwards, away from the enemy, the Wehrmacht kept in contact pursuing the fleeing units. With the taking of Solesmes and the Zeelands the AHC had lost some strong areas that would be hard to regain. Read the thread Go to first new post AHC Town Giveaway Program ( Multi-page thread 1 2 )

Magjam: " There is such an unbalance at the moment that towns are being steamrolled at a ridiculous rate. This does not mean HC should "give up" and come up with silly gamey tactics."
