Designer: Unknown
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The 4th Armoured Brigade, probing northeast of Gabr Saleh, was driving a German recon unit before it. The Afrika Korps at last reacted, quickly forming several units of the 21st Panzer Division into Kampfgruppe Stephan which set out to investigate the reports of the British tanks. The Kampfgruppe located the tail-end regiment of the 4th’s and attacked. Cries for help brought the 5th RTR which arrived before dark and immediately counterattacked. . .

2017-10-07(D) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best British winNice change of pace scenario with just tanks in a straight up gunfight. Dan's Stuarts came hard in a schwerpunkt towards the German left. The Germans were strung out in a long line across the map. Initially, my Germans took the early lead by taking out 5 of the Stuarts, but once the Stuarts got in close, it was curtains for the Afrika Korps. Great win for Dan!
2017-05-16(D) Bill Brodie vs Steve Bond German winBritish drove into a hail of accurate fire. While he did bounce back and take out a few panzers, the initial losses made it impossible for him to win the gun battle.
2016-09-19(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Sebastiano Caltabiano German winAs I suspected the scenario is a dicey affair weighted towards the German (55-60% I think). As British I was able to hit a single german AFV once in two turns despite point blank fire and didn't do any harm. In response I got 8 stuarts destroyed by 3 snakes, and 8 other hit (yes there there were 1 miss, 2 shocks and 8 killed AFV). In 1 and half turn it was all over. Won't play it again, it's far worse than I expected.
2016-08-08(A) Jeff Hew vs Jon Halfin British win
2015-11-19(A) Richard Carter vs Bob Devereaux German winI was able to get behind the German line but it was not enough. We lost 11/12 stuarts before we realized the German's had past the automatic victory part.
