Mortar barrage madness

Colour Sergeant Alfaracer reported: " The attack on Chimay was going well, we had driven tanks to the west hill and had held the position for a while. Stugs and 88s soon spawned and when my H39 got toasted I decided to respawn as a mortar (my new favourite weapon).
Upon spawning I was delighted to find the UMS only 500m from town. I found myself a decent bush behind a small ridge to hide myself from town and began firing into the AB. After firing my ten rounds of HE I was then waiting for resupply from the truck so progess at first was slow.
As the attack gained pace a few rifles resupplied me as they ran past which greatly increased my rate of fire, it also drew attention to the UMS though as more people began spawning. More mortars joined me and we had a good 3 man team pouring death into the AB.
This seemed to draw some attention though and we soon had a 232 flanking our position. When the truck was destroyed we fled from the hail of mg fire. I was the only one who managed to survive, and although slighlty injured made my way to another truck which began to resupply me.

Once again after a time I was joined by yet more mortarman and this time 2 rifles who were prepared to resupply us, a big thanks to dubane and snowy for that. A sapper made his way for our position but I pulled out my rifle and killed him first shot.
Our hellish barrage forced the LW to get invovled. After several near misses a 250kg bomb landed near the truck and blew it to pieces. Once again I survived and after firing the rest of my ammo made my way into town. We were starting to take control of the town and after finding myself a good building overlooking the AB I sniped a few more infantry untill the town was ours.
I was over the moon to find out later I had damaged 111 units and killed 25 outright, including 10 bofors, 3 88s, many 37mm and even a panzer 2C."

Fire from below

Hauptman Bagir reported: " Light bomber Bristol Blenheim Mk. IV was killed from LMG at the defendind Jodoigne-Wavre FB. At this moment I take duty on this FB alone, so nobody else can take part in this kill.

Aclinal low-flying (altitude was about 30-60 m) aircraft was pelted from light machine gun.
First clip I began spend on him when he was about 150-200 m from me. Then I quickly reload LMG and half of the second clip be able to sock to his potbelly and left engine. His engine send out grey smoke, and after 100-200 m from FB plane crash down to the ground."

Guns of Menen

QM Sergeant Lowe reported on january 3rd: " Following the orders of the OC 11th Hussars, M0rdsith, I moved a M1 ATG north of the town of Menen from the Roulers depot. Unsure whether I would be facing infantry or armour I moved up the road, keeping to the hedgeline.
Several times I stopped to face over to the East of the North-South road as I heard the tracks of Panzers, however I did not spot any vehicles. Continuing to move along the road, I spotted a Panzer tank to the North on the roadway. Quickly I deployed and sent several roads his way, but he manouvered quickly out of my Line of Sight by moving out to the East. I moved North until I was almost a kilometer North of Menen & deployed facing West.
My first kill came when an Opel, hauling a PAK gun came careering down the West flank from the Forward Base. My first three shots missed, and I knew he would soon be out of my guns traverse arc, so I shifted the gun further and opened fire with a HE shell. Thinking I had missed, I was about to prepare to move on in case they came to hunt me down, when the Opel exploded & the ATG tried to set up to aim at my position. I managed to silence the PAK gun, as a 232 also came speeding down the Western flank. A single hit from a HE shell on its rear made it explode, sending its smoking hulk rolling amongst the hedges.
Turning North, I moved further up the bushline by a hundred meters and set myself up once again as a few tanks came down the flank at intervals. The first took a shell to its turret, sparks showering the sky, whilst the second shell blew off its tracks, sending it spinning into trees. The next tank was upon the roadway, and took three shots to disable it.
A few moments later an Opel came down the roadway. Having set up, I waited a few moments for it to enter the guns sights and at 50m I blew it apart with a HE shell. The wreck dragged its cargo of a PAK gun into the hedgeline, and I quickly moved to place several shells into its crew & the gun itself.
Running low on ammo, I retreated further amongst the bushes and put out a request for ammunition, which was answered by Dabinsky in a Laffly truck. Once I had rearmed from him, I moved to cover the West flank again as a few tanks moved south from the FB.
For the next while I continued to put tanks & opels out of action, until another 232 took shells to its turret that did not kill its gunner, and managed to shoot my Observer.
Unperturbed I stayed at my position, manning the gun, and finally made the 232 a wreck.
Unfortunatly another Panzer appeared out to my West and whilst I dealt with his gunner with a few aimed shots, his hullgunner opened fire at me and I abandoned the gun."
