Unless the Major objects, the two antitank guns will go with me as part of the reserve so they can be placed to repel enemy tanks if they should appear. The truck with the HQ section will be required to carry their ammunition however. The kettenrad can carry a handful of rounds at most, and then only with difficulty.

That is unless these are supposed to be something like Sdkfz 10...

No, you're correct about the carrying capacity of the Kettenkrad.

I leave approvals for detachment to the Hauptmann

Do we have an intended order of march gentlemen? Or should I work off the crossing order?

Then the truck carries the ammunition except for a few rounds and some of the crew, if necessary. The kubelwagen can be swapped to the HQ staff for their use. Taking these two guns into action with a handful of rounds each would be a definite mistake.

Yes, those things are not great at that job.
I would suggest using one for the gun, and the other for an ammo trailer. Hitch the other gun to the truck with the ammo, perhaps?

I'm getting suggestions from my subordinates for the moment. I'll post up an order of March and commanders directives and distributions by tomorrow.....so everyone knows their responsibilities and my intentions.

For the moment the kettenkrad will be the prime movers. The truck is very vulnerable under fire if the gun has to displace. The kettenkrad are smaller making them less of a target to move the gun under fire. The truck will also be carrying two types of ammunition as the guns are different. One's a 3.7cm the other a 5 cm.

I need to have both along with the kubelwagen I'm in back towards the rear of the column to control stragglers, and act as reserve. That's the norm. The CO follows the lead elements to direct the combat.

The third kubelwagen can follow me with two funkers, a driver, and their radio equipment, or they can go with the Major.

The medical personnel and administrative staff should follow the column at the rear.

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.
Herr Hauptmann, as required, 2nd platoon's CoA in visual.
Blue is movement
Orange is fields of fire (overlapping!)

Platoon trucks will be parked at the side of the track
at a respectable distance from the action and be guarded by the drivers.
If a suitable track up the hill can be found they will join 2nd platoon when the situation allows.

Half Platoon provides overwatch towards the bridge and village and other half provides fire support to 2nd Platoon. 2x Overwatch, 3x Fire Support

After 2nd Platoon reaches their position and doesn't require fire support, full concentration on overwatch.

When attack towards village starts, Platoon provides Fire Support with enemy gun positions and heavy equipment taking the priority. When infantry advances, Panzers are to follow and support them.

It looks as if I should modify my recon (see map previous page) to avoid friendly fire.

In any case, our recon may reveal things that will cause a revision to plans.

Thnx Ente.
I'll fire a yellow flare in case I need your fire support
and two red ones to signal you to stop fire!

Exactly. I was to say: make it easy on yourself and your men.
Just get on that hill undetected and tell the captain what you see

Ok.......

Situation: Unknown Russian Forces hold bridge and road along Division line of advance.

Mission: Take and hold bridge and road. Hold until relieved by regimental forces.

Execution:

--Order of March to ford:

4th Platoon vanguard and flankers
3rd Platoon (w/Hauptmann Heinz and 3 on Kugelwagen)
1st Platoon
HQ Balance
2nd Platoon

Order of crossing:
4th Platoon
2 Panzers of 3rd Platoon
Kampfgruppe Balance
remaining 3 Panzers of 3rd Platoon

--Return to Order of march after crossing if there is an additional approach march needed (off map)--

--1st Platoon Directives:

Using all available Terrain, advance along the riverbank and trail to the village. Engage and drive off or destroy any Russian forces. Secure the Bridge intact.

--2nd Platoon Directives:

Advance slowly behind 4th Platoon. If Hill 170 is held by enemy forces not driven off by 4th platoon's recon, capture the hill in advance of KGHQ guns arrival. Be ready to divert squads or platoon as necessary to accomplish 1st Platoons mission (the bridge intact is the primary mission objective).

3rd Platoon Directives:

Support 1st Platoon in their move to capture the village and the bridge. This objective must be taken intact before we switch focus to secondary objectives.

4th Platoon Directives:

Immediately after the first panzers from 3rd Platoon cross the ford, engage in an aggressive recon of Hill 170. If it can be taken quickly, take and hold until 2nd Platoon and HQ elements arrive to fully secure same. If engaged, do not foolishly press the attack but rather continue to scout and develop Russian Positions as practicable.

Admin/Logistics: All Platoons have organic supplies for this operation, no anticipated supply or reinforcement available.

Command/Signal: Command will be by KG CO on the field. Signal will be by KG radio frequency. Flare/smoke code is Yellow for assistance required, Red for Cease Fire or Medic.

Orders

Headquarters, Kampfgruppe Regenbogen

In support of mission to capture bridge and road in advance of division assets, KGHQ will perform the following:

HQ Section 1, Hauptmann Heinz:

Kugelwagen, Driver and Radioman, Hauptmann Heinz
Kugelwagen, Driver and 3 men
Kettenkrad, Driver and 1 man
Ambulance and 3 Medics

Once across the ford, HQ Section 1 will consolidate. The Kettenkrad will be used to assist any vehicles that get stuck after crossing the ford (the panzers will assist at the ford), or deliver messages across difficult terrain. Otherwise it will remain with the Ambulance behind the efforts of the platoons. Once hill 170 is taken, both will be on standby at KGHQ location.

Hauptmann Heinz and his two Kugelwagen will be an emergency mobile reserve to be allocated at the Hauptmann's discretion.

HQ Section 2, Stabsfeldwebel Gardner

1 Pak38 w 6 men, Kettenkrad, Kugelwagen
1 Pak36 w 3 men, 1 Kettenkrad
1 Truck w/4 men

HQ Section 2 will provide support to both efforts in the opening phase and be on standby to repel an armored attack. Once hill 170 is taken, Section 2 will establish defensive gun positions to interdict Russian Reinforcements in the area of the Fork. Vehicles not directly needed will be dispatched to KGHQ location in the area of hill 170 for resource pool.

"Das ist klar Herr Hauptmann. You and Oberfahnrich von Pruitt can count on us. Leutnant Ertl can one of your bikes give me a lift, I want to see the village with my own eyes."


Panzers 2 and 3 cross first with Panzers 1,4 and 5 follow. Leutnant Senft will approach the village so that he is in cover, but can see the place with his binoculars. Importance is to spot Soviet gun positions and strongpoints. If lift near the village is not plausible, He is going to cross first and peek from the cupola with his binoculars trying to see target. If necessary dismount to spot the targets before combat.

When Panzers arrive he is to mount his Command tank and direct the four other tanks from the middle. Giving targets and instructing what to do. If combat is initiated before he is able to mount his tank, he is to direct the fire of one of his Panzers by crouching behind the turret and when possible mounting his own.

Platoon is to concentrate fire on Soviet guns, tanks and heavy weapons and to suppress any Soviet positions that could threaten 1st Platoons advance and the well-being of Pzk IIs. Keep distance to the housing in the middle. Panzers 2 and 3 concentrate on the bridge, 4 and 5 on the middle housing. Use two round burst at targets and look for effect before firing again. Against structure targets, use AP ammunition to soften in for HE and MG.

Leutnant Senft is to keep watch for flares that could indicate need for help.

Okay then. I will modify my plan as follows-



Blaze a trail for the Panzers and help ensure they make the crossing.

Go beyond that by the route shown, as traveling along the woodline should help conceal us and scatter the noise of our engines.

Dash across the road to the base of the hill.
Same route, but this time, we leave one Squad's Radio and MG team at a good overwatch position, where they can keep the KG informed of traffic and conditions at the crossroads.

And at last, take that hill from the rear with the remaining dozen men.

Naturally, but I thought that one of your tanks would be coming with us. Feel free to hop on the back of one of the machines, the Combo with the radio might be best.
