Turn 8 – Bazookas and why i hate them

Filed under: — thimble @ 1:08 pm

Well I thought this round was going to be sweet sweet killing of the americans by my superior Dulph Lungrend german super troopers. My tanks were lying in waiting, hidden in the forrest and ready to show the shermans what a real tank can do. Only TopHat had his bazooka team was ready to fire once more, i think it’s because Top’s been playing too much bf:vietnam and so he has his team doing guerrilla tactics. So he managed to take out one of my panzerIVs in the forrest. One sherman was already down so i guess that’s a fair trade.

Another panzerIV was on the south side of the road moving slowly towards firing position on the other sherman when wham! Bazooka to the head(literally, i lost my driver). So the tank was shocked and couldn’t fire it’s main gun, so it retreated from the hail of bazooka fire. I feel like I’m in black hawk down, rpg’s going everwhere! Eventually the bazooka’s find their mark and that panzerIV and my plans of flanking the sherman and cutting off the retreat of those fleeing infantry are lost.

Also i have dumbasses driving my apc/trucks. These vehicles are loaded with quality units, ready to kick some democratic ass! Unfortunately they can’t get into the action since the drivers are taking their sweet sweet time going through the trees. It would’ve been nice if those infantry could’ve been beside the tank to protect it from the hail of bazooka’s but no they had to practice their parallel parking in the forrest!

The good news is that Top lost another 2 squads of engineers, so he’s now down to 3 spent artillery spooters and 2 bazooka rounds! Nothing can really stop ze germans now!
