Most of my Platoon is now in that Church except for some wounded in the Trench? If someone would have asked, I would have placed the three LMG's and one Maxim outside to cut off any sneak attacks. I guess all I am supposed to do now is wait for satchel charges and Grenades to take us out?

Von Pruitt, the last orders you gave that requested your men to actually do anything were at 0945.

At that stage you directed your MG teams to set up and provide supporting fire for your assault on your current position.

In the absence of orders to the contrary or enemies in view, and seeing the remainder of your platoon regrouping to the fore, your support weapons moved up to your position in the 1030 update (as noted there).

As to "if someone had asked", I was unaware any officer required an invitation to issue orders to their command. Consider it given, if still needed.

What you are "supposed" to do at this point is command your men to the best of your ability, obeying orders while keeping them in as good a shape as possible. If that, to you, means "sit tight and wait for an inferior number of Soviets to eject me from a large stone building" then go to it.

Von Pruitt looks at his men in the stone barn. "What are all the Machine Guns doing in here? We need to place them to protect this building. Now we have Ivan outside and this will be tricky. I want a fire team (SMG and three Riflemen) to go out the barn and roll up these people. One LMG will go after them and set up to keep more Ivan away. Team Two will do the same to the other side. The Maxim will set up to where we can watch the Bridge. The third LMG will be in reserve. Sergeant do you want to clear the left side of the building or should I? I will take the side you don't want. Let's do this!"

Good one!

Will roll with that unless you supersede with anything in the other thread before the cutoff.

Richard,

For what it is worth, there is an old saying about artillery guns and machine guns - If they are not firing or moving to a new firing position, they are simply junk on the battlefield.

Putting an LMG in reserve, unless placing it in a blocking position, is like junk on a battlefield.

For yours to consider.

I want to see if the other two get into a good position before I send the third out. I would hope to place it where it can fire on the bridge, but I don't know if there are any available windows.

A few things I need to know for the record:

1) How much is left of 1st Platoon? I understand that they have (now) 4 Machine Guns overall, including the captured weapons, but how many men remain as well?

2) 4th Platoon consists of 6-8 men making up 2 MG sections with some rifle and SMG support, correct, mounted on 2 sidecar motorbikes and a few other motorbikes.

Total manning, 17 able-bodied men plus von Pruitt.

2. 4th Platoon is at 9 men, with 1 R75 (open sidecar), 2 R75s with added MG and 3 1-man Motorcycles. All vechiles are currently abandoned near the east face of the Market Square.

Well, I know what I'm doing then. Time to relocate the HQ to the Market (so they're between all of the units on the map), and take 4th platoon to assist 1st. Plus every panzer I can get my hands on. 2nd Platoon seems to be well in hand at their current location.

As soon as 2nd Platoon gets into position, 1st Platoon will step off with both of its Fire Teams. I figure most of my men are manning machine guns.

I'm relying on you to handle anything from that direction solo. The 37mm gun is yours to command.....but expect no armored support.

Ooc: It retains its crew - proper use and deployment falls to the officer class. Who are, by definition, experts. Right, gentlemen?
