[HH] [Anno] Spoiling Attack
Somewhere in the Eden sector, tanks of Heeresgruppe Blau are being fuelled under the watchful eye of Captain Otto von Seydlitz. A grizzled veteran of the Eden front, he is considered one of Generalfeldmarschall von Grunewald's favourites. In the upcoming offensive, he is to lead a Kampfgruppe as part of the German armoured spearhead.
Armed with the knowledge of the upcoming offensive, Ayanami forces led by the famous Creisader Yoshikage have shown up to surprise the Germans while they make their preparations
The German forces scramble to meet the attack and the battle begins
GERMAN CONFEDERATION TURN 1
The kreuzerpanzer zooms forwards and sprays the Reihadis with machine gun fire, even managing to slay the anti tank gunner
Under the direction of Captain von Seydlitz, the T-34 747(r) slams a round through a weak point in the Ayanami tank's armour straight into an ammo rack, resulting in a catastrophic explosion. HEROIC FEAT: SUCCESSFUL
Inspired by this success, some of the German troops surge forwards while their comrades roll poorly for their sprint rolls.
AYANAMI TURN 1
Ayanami troops manage to outflank and gun down the German standard bearer and one other German
Yoshikage's sword bounces harmlessly off the kreuzerpanzer HEROIC FEAT: FAILED
Ayanami AT gun fire annihilates a large group of Germans, including von Seydlitz
Seconds later, a hit to the T-34's side armour knocks it down two structure levels
To top off the carnage for this round, an Ayanami soldier commanders an AT gun and manages to destroy the kreuzerpanzer
END OF TURN 1 Overwatch
GERMAN CONFEDERATION TURN 2
The T-34 rams into the Ayanami heavy tank in an attempt to prevent the latter from manoeuvring its devastating main gun
The tiger advances, crushing several Ayanami troops but missing a shot on the Ayanami tank with its fearsome 88mm gun
AYANAMI TURN 2
Yoshikage decapitates the tiger with a swing of his ancient war sword. HEROIC FEAT: SUCCESSFUL
The Ayanami heavy tank reverses and combines fire with the AT guns to destroy the T-34. The last German infantryman is caught in the blast.
Hope you lot enjoyed this small battle, sorry about the sub par photography - the weather sucks pretty much constantly at the moment
