2019-07-16(A) Martí Cabré vs Sebastiano Caltabiano American winI did a wide approach to the German positions with three groups of infantry and vehicles. German captured vehicles were prone to malfunction so I reserved them for bypass freezing German positions. The German kill stack of the 838 and the 10-2 had a bad luck of 6,6 on a FPF and that allowed the Americans to quickly overrun their strong position. American firepower slowly broke the defenders and finally their FT position also fell leaving only the Gun to hold for two whole turns and the Germans conceded the scenario. It feels too much luck based, not a good impression.
