[BKC II] Counter Attack In The Ardennes

The field of battle, a little bit sparse.

The Germans prepare to advance.

Scheduled German artillery hammers the American position KO'ing two sections of Paras.

The Germans stall at the ruins of a town.

The heavy tanks skirt around the edge of town

The American artillery blunders and one section is suppressed

More German artillery, suppressing the American FAO

Mortars stops the German heavy Armour dead in its tracks

Op. fire from pack howitzers  and 57mm ATGs take their toll.

The mortars take advantage of open tanks

The Americans can keep the German tanks stalled but not kill them, the Germans keep firing at the hill top

The Germans try to bring on their flank force, they forgot an HQ but we let that slip, however a blunder wipes out two units!

The right flank seems to be secure

Aware that some leaderless flankers might arrive the Americans reinforce the hill

After seven turns the Germans finally break out of the center but that brings them into range of the American guns!

A German heavy tank finally falls to the Americans

The American line holds strong

The Germans have lost more than 25% so its a minor victory for the Americans.
