Well, I did call for 1 bomb only. And I worded it as less of a direct order to take down the building and more of an FYI to the pilots of a possible spotter location.

Snezny Yes, aiming to update again in 16 hours or so.

Heinz ah, I'll have to reread - at a glance I saw it as a target for the single Stuka strike, but maybe it will be a target for one flight only and the others will search for the guns.

Well, we're moving, albeit unopposed..

2nd Squad advances to the south wall of the house in 1803-4, making use of the cover although they think better of entering the blazing structure. Snezny finds them there, after confirming 1st is secure in its target building.
Anyone know off hand which other buildings are on fire ??

The entire line along the road ?

I may try get a new set of orders in before I leave...not much time skip back through all reports though.

That and the next two buildings in line directly north.

There were some efforts made to ignite the buildings on the north side of the orchard, but no success yet.

Owing to delays and other RL distractions on my side this week (*coughpaintingcough*) the next update is due on Thursday evening my time (so early Thursday morning US time).

All good news there, well except for the fact you have to paint - obviously

I just adopt the engineers then ? Or are they ordered around by someone else who I have to coordinate with ?

1st Squad has been assigned to your command for the time being, so they've been advised to do as you direct.

They aren't yours permanently however, so may resist if you ask them to do something overly suicidal.

Not likely

my point squads are moving, my support has been re established so for now they'll move in support, and bolster morale and maybe share their expertise, by sending a few individuals forward.

How are they armed exactly ?

Explosives ? SMGs ? Flamethrower ?

Can I assume I have a couple of smoke grenades in each vehicle for use?

Snezny: My records indicate you have the 9-man squad, presently equipped with 6 SMG, 3 Rifles, 2 PzB39, 1 Flammenwerfer, satchel charges, grenades and smoke grenades.

Gardner: At this stage you have 3 smoke grenades in Pz 1 and 1 in Pz 3. Pz 4 is unfortunately out.

As we say (yell, really!) in my world:

CHECK FIRE! CHECK FIRE! CHECK FIRE!

I don't know if it is simply how one is reading the map, or not reading the posts. If City Hall (which I interpret at being at 1004) seems to be being assaulted by 2nd Platoon after my flak gun poured effective fire on it, why is 4th Platoon (?) assaulting it too? Pincer movement? If not coordinated, platoons are going to hurt.

Oh, BTW, using assault pioneers to counter the tank threat!!! IMO, not the best way of using a resource that can blow hole in building walls and clear rooms with a flamethrower...Just saying, for your consideration.

@Pruitt: Unfortunately no sighting reports of the back of that tank as yet. It's possible!

@Capt AFB: Yes, the Town Hall is in 1004 - and 2nd Platoon is currently inside the structure in one area (2nd floor south).

@CaptAFB:

The Pioneers are a last ditch anti-tank resource. I'm deploying the anti-tank assets concurrently to take the tanks under fire and destroy them. The Pioneers are to take buildings in front of my AT assets. If the tanks were to push up close, then charges off the 2nd floor onto the back deck or a flamethrower onto the turret would be brutally effective. However, the primary mission of that reserve squad of pioneers is to get our lines pushed across the 10th so we can get the advance resuming. We have 2 platoons up there, and they're tangled and slowed....I'm pushing up a cohesive force to take and hold buildings so we can untangle that mess and get the advance going smoothly again, at which point the Pioneers will again revert to being reserves for dealing with special circumstances.

Nick,

You have the lead here.

I'm just a bit concerned using pioneers as tank killers (even as a last ditch) in which they will sustain casualties and be left ineffective to do their real job afterwards.

At the end, it is your call.
