2016-11-30(A) Martí Cabré vs Nicolas Sabido German winMy first commando group was wiped out by murderous HMG fire that constantly got multiple ROF. Only a HS and a leader survived! The second group made it to the artillery position and managed to destroy 5 of the 6 guns, take 4 squads and 2 leaders prisoners and exit half of the team but the turns with all the guns firing and scoring 12 points per turn had widen a gap, and the Germans finally won by 21 points.
