The fourth campaign turn saw Soviet victories across the board. The Italian march on the left flank was halted again, the Panzershützen counter-attack on the east flank was thrown back, and the dogged resistance of the Gebirgsjäger company in the center finally lost grip of the train station.
This means that campaign turn 5 will see the Soviet forces launching attacks everywhere. Will the Axis platoons be able to resist, or are the mounting casualties going to be too much? And who will bicker the most - the Italian officers, or the Russians? One thing is sure: neither side will be holding any punches from now on!
On the hobby side, the Germans are mostly adding stuff that unfortunately rarely see the battlefield such as motorcycles, staff cars and so on. Other hobby projects are also springing up, as summer is a typical period for audacious plans and irresponsible spending. Rumours are spreading about new WW2 forces being drafted at the club, including both French Foreign Legion and British. Are these rumblings of something as modern as *gasp* 1942-43? But what about all my grey tanks?!
Slightly worried regards,
