Another all-tank battle in the frozen depths of the Russian winter of 1941….
We had four players with the Russian players, DaveMcN of course taking, what he believes to be the best of the Soviet tanks available, in the T-34; and his comrade Francis taking two of the T-26 (points equalling any other tank). The “CocaCola” Dave and myself taking a Pzkw III and Pz38t respectively.
A humous point of the game having (the usually Russian-playing) me wanting to fire upon the Pzkw III as ‘C-C’ Dave had driven his tank around the far side of the houses to face Soviet Dave who (through my misinterpretation of the rules) was able to drive his T-34 across the table and now also facing the ‘wrong’ direction. Even with a flank shot that I could not get many shots in. The bad, bad and few dice! Francis
