Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
BritishGerman / Italian
Blade Force was assembled as one of the Allied groups pushing forward with the intent of capturing the capital, Tunis, before Hitler could reinforce his African bridgehead. The attempted coup de main was forestalled by bad weather and small bands of German and Italian troops that constructed roadblocks among the numerous pass along the border between Algeria and Tunisia. One such roadblock on the road between Mateur and Tebourba was manned by soldiers of 3rd Battalion, 92nd Regiment Fanteria with support from SP guns and German paratroopers. . . . .British AC's and tanks including Valentine VIII's attack an Italian defensive position. The Italians are supported by 2 Semoventis and are reinforced by German Fallschirmjagers.

2016-09-22(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Alessandro Caltabiano British winThis is a very nice puzzle for the axis, the defender has scarce resources to hold at bay the attacking british, BUT it can be done. Never undervalue a menace and be prepared to defend your west edge where your german reinforcement come from. Those AC are going to interdict in that zone. Make them pay. It's important to guard your flanks against the carriers (which can deliver their HS on top of you). Try it is very nice scenario (and don't foget the errata con overlay V17 placement and italian set up.
