Wait... I am confused here. From what direction are we approaching?

I thought it would be from the West, but I hear people talking as if we are the ones coming in from the east?

I already have a plan in my head, but I need to know what our point of entry is before we go ahead here.

"Gefeiter Heinz will have coffee and biscuits here in a few minutes Herr Major" the Der Spiess replies. I take out the muster book from my jacket. "Morning appel has fourteen men on light duty or sick, one on leave. His family was killed last week in an air raid. One of our panzer two is not in service as are two of our trucks. The works company says they should be back tomorrow.
This will leave each rifle platoon with only two trucks for the moment. No rifle squad has less than nine men available. All of our wireless sets are operating correctly on the assigned frequency. The men have had breakfast already and each man was given an iron portion to carry with him for this operation. Ammunition loads were checked and we have sufficient to carry out two days operations on hand."

I snap the muster book shut with a heel click and nod.

Our river crossing is off map to the SW. We will approach along those two roads (small enough that they can be mistaken for contour lines).

"Leutnant Senkt. I expect that you will have your fifth panzer ready for action before we arrive on the field. I do not want to be forced to divide your panzers among the infantry."

Turning back to the rest of the men he says "Gentlemen, I will hear your suggestions before I make my final plan"

"It hasn't rained in few days so there shouldn't be a danger for my Panzers to get stuck." ( I asked Khryses so official weather report is "Assume fine weather - blue skies")

"One option could be to suppress the bridge and houses west of it and infiltrate infantry in the cover of riverbanks"

"Don't worry Old Man, my Panzers will be ready when needed. I just need to see the targets before acting"

OOC: For the purposes of the priority operation, Kampfgruppe Regenbogen has been issued equipment currently in full working order. Worry not, the episode should be challenging enough without any initial breakdowns (which will become more of an issue in future episodes).

As we have a Der Spiess now, I'll know where to direct breakdown and sick calls

Happy to accept Gardner's actions in ensuring the KG is ready with iron rations and two days' expected ammunition requirements.

I know from being in charge of units up to 100+ in size that you never, ever will be at 100%. Something's always broken, someone's always sick or on leave. I thought a couple of trucks, one tank (a high maintenance item to begin with) and 8% of the unit's personnel was reasonable.

It really doesn't alter the unit's ability to carry out the mission. You cram the men in two trucks instead of three and go without the tank. Better, the vehicles down are really sort of a built in reserve (as are the men on sick or leave).

Oh I'm sure things will break down, especially since they're now assigned.

I think Khryses' concept is that since KG Regenbogen is brand new as of today, all down assets are down at the Regimental level and have been replaced by Regiment in order to put the KG at 100% temporarily.

I would have a plan for you if I knew for certain what our entry point was on that map.

OOC: For clarity, the designated entry point is the narrow unpaved track here:



You are not restricted to that entry point, but will need to specify where (and if) you intend to leave the road and enter. (ie. "I will lead my column west off road 30 min from the mapped area and approach up the bank of the river").

When the column moves out I'll be taking one of the HQ kubelwagen and follow the 2nd Platoon. That way I am in a position to assist the reserve, observe the action, and commit once the critical point becomes apparent. I'm taking two schutze from the HQ as messengers in addition to a driver.

An "extra" MG 34 is piled in the vehicle with ammunition and a couple of hohlladung magnetic mines I "acquired" from a friend in a pioneer unit. I also make sure my flare pistol has a number of red and green rounds available for it, and then check my Steyr MP 34 before putting it in the vehicle too.

I tell the driver and messengers to stay with the vehicle while I check with the Major for any last minute changes, then double check my map case has my sketch map of the operation and terrain correct on it.

After that I drive by the various units and check in with the Feldwebel or senior NCO to make sure they're ready for action.

Ok.....mission assignments:

1) village, bridge.

2) hill, reserve.

3) support 1 and 2 as a cohesive unit.

4) recon hill, seize if possible, recon and interdiction on road.

Hq) assume commanding position to support by fire.

Submit your initial plans of action to accomplish your assignments. I will review and publish a cohesive battle plan for the kampfgruppe before roll out.

My suggested plan



Red - This is the approach to the ford, pre-dawn.
Now, we don't have the firepower to do anything but bounce off most resistance, but with a Mark II along we may be able to do a little more than that. If the ford is unguarded by more than sentries we could take and hold it... but that would eliminate our ability to do more than that.
And there is a lot more to do.

-- what does "bounce off" mean?
Fire a burst of automatic fire or toss a grenade, drop some smoke, and get out of there at full speed.

So, whatever the case, we radio back what the situation is at the ford, and move on to;

Secondary move, that big building.
That thing really catches my eye, I am thinking that an HQ or a group of vehicles may be lurking there. My group splits up to raid them.
Northern group- 1st squad and the Mark II. They creep up and take a peek, and open fire to see what kind of reaction they get. I plan for something bad, so the Southern Group (my guy is there) will bolt in along the south and "bounce" them at top speed and go ahead to the foot of that hill as shown.

Next bit- that gives the North group a chance to bolt and go for the treeline, making them harder to spot in the early dawn light. They go forward towards the crossroad to see what is happening there.
Meanwhile, the map seems to show that the trees are thinest at the only place where the slope is easy enough for our motorcycles to climb, and so we will.

Possible dismount assaults-
I really want that hill, and gambling that there is just an O.P. or one cannon up there, I will give it a try with 9 men including the Lt. and his trusty grenade launcher.
The Northern group can have a go at the crossroads if it looks possible, and make a good racket to distract Ivan and make him show his hand, even if they can't take the place.
For the Mark II, driving in semi-darkness may be difficult, so I will have a couple of men wear white cloth bands around their helmets. They may have to shuck them if they come under heavy fire, but it should help for a while.

I know this looks bold, but this is the first day of a surprise attack. If we are able to get away with something like this, it should be now.

Well boss, how does that look?

(if this is too wordy, let me know. I don't want other players thinking they have to issue orders like this one too)
