Solo play. (view)esparver732013-01-08 21:18:05
Solo play. I put the KV on the Russian left side to force the German armor side to take the German right, more narrow, covered with an ATR, the gun and the other tank. The Germans smashed that position killing some Russians and the Russian gun malfunctioned and was eliminated. But then the KV moved to the central position and started blowing up German tanks, using the PFPh and the DFPh. More, the German infantry started failing all of its MC and the attack stalled. The German tanks attacked seven or eight times the KV to no avail and it destroyed all German tanks but three. The Germans conceded with only one building hex taken, three surviving tanks and almost all infantry broken, with two turns to go.

2018-06-11(D) Lee Hyde vs Max Malm Russian winLucky Russian success in taking out some rash German tankers early on left it finely poised with only two functioning German AFV's in T4. A min 2 being required to hope for victory, and the KV-2 despatched the last required for a Russian victory.
2017-07-07(A) Greg Krane vs solo German winRotten Russian luck! On the first turn the Russian AT gun Malfed and got a six on the repair roll the very next Rally Phase. The KV-2 couldn't buy a hit on he German attackers and then at the end of turn 3 its MA malfed and then...6 on the repair roll! With the linchpin of its defense removed the Panzers destroyed the remaining Russian AFV and quickly surrounded and cut off the remaining Russian infantry.
2017-01-22(D) O Ramaille vs Russian winWith the huge KV-2 Russian tank covering most of the open ground, the German decided to advance through the woods. They advance slowly with support of the panzers. Soon, some Germans gun malfunctioned, forcing even one of the panzer to be recalled. A Russian ATR transformed another into a wreck. And the KV-2 was coming that way. The shots rebound on is armour and smoke did not prevent another kill. Meanwhile, the Russian infantry suffered heavy losses and had to give ground. The German conquered one then two buildings. A Panzer got mired trying to force entrance on a building. And the hidden Russian gun smoked another Panzer. The battle was done. With only two controlled building and only one panzer mobile, the Germans losed this early battle.
