We played tonight so I have a quick update. My notes trail off as I drank more beers so please bear with me.
The ROBA does it's stuff but only manages to create a bunch of shellholes in the square (well, it also pinned a German HMG, but that's it). Jim continues the attack lays down some SMOKE in P37 from a gun in S39. But as before he can move across the street, a German sniper breaks a squad in P36 which gets rid of the No Move on the German units in O35 and O36. Also the Russians start moving into the P43 building.
A nice highlight, a cloaked 4-4-7 tries to move into P37 and gets pinned by a German Deathstar adjacent. The HMG gets rate so it fires again and everyone else subs to get a K/4. The 1/2 squad breaks and ELRs to a 'script. The HMG keeps rate and now gets a 2MC which the 'script promptly fails. As Dr D would say "Now that's how you kill Russians."
Jim tries to move some more guys into the Nail Factory block and a 5-2-7 gets busted by a 2MC in Q38. Finally, he tries to run another 5-2-7 in but inadvertantly (or too many brews) runs him into the ROBA where he is promptly hit with a K/4. This one the Doh! award for tonight.
But in CC the Ruskies do some good and kill and 8-1 and 4-6-7 in 043 and a 4-6-8 in P44.
In rally, a German crew boxcars and is no more. During a prep a 5-2-7 is broken but another HOB to a 6-2-8.
Nothing else in my notes for the rest of this turn.
I should mention, nothing is really happening in the center or North. I have moved some cloaked units around up North, but generally stay out of NVR. MikeP does some starshells and does take a few pot shots with a StuG but otherwise it's pretty quiet up North.
The rough fighting in the South continues. One highlight, Jim moves a cloaked unit up, but had them confused so it's not the unit he thought it was. The 10-0 and 5-2-7 that it actually was survive a bunch of FF and a German stack even does FPF where the squad breaks and the leader pins.
CC sees the most action where in P38 a Russian 5-2-7 actually gets ambushed by a 5-4-8 and gets wiped. But in N41 a Russian ambush causes the loss of a German 1-2-7, 4-4-7 and 8-1. Lastly, in O44 another Russian ambush gets a 4-6-7.
Now my notes get real light. The big thing I have in this turn is a German 50mm MTR in N22 KIAS a 4-2-6 in Q24.
We crank out this turn and a 5-2-7 and a German 5-4-8 get killed.
As we called it. The Germans firmly control the Nail Factory block, but Jim has done pretty well in the block just South of that. We took pics which Jim will post and I'm sure provide the hard numbers.
