Trust all are safe and surviving The Plague as best you can.

This is a scenario from my Gembloux pack featuring a fight between German motorised troops and Moroccans.

I'm very sorry that you were so disappointed and let down by the post Brownand. I presume you actually clicked on the link and viewed the post rather than just commenting based on the photos above?
By the way, tanks do have a formation called Line. Or Linie for panzers. Worked for Napoleon. Worked in WWII. Still works today.

Are these 1/72 figures? What rules are you using. Are you using paper houses?

mgk416708 May 2020 3:36 p.m. PST

Yes, 1:72. Rules are Command Decision. The houses are all paper/cardboard.

Check out: link for the scenario

for the buildings

The line worked in Desert Storm with M1A1s too. In fact, my battalion CO told us that our opening attack was something right out of the Napoleonic Wars. The better part of a battalion of tanks firing an opening volley with him, the colonel, giving the order. He said it was quite the rush and it decimated the Iraqis. I can't imagine the shock effect of 20+ 120mm M256s firing more or less in a volley and hitting my unit… and they never even saw us until we fired.

Thanks for your service. Respect.
Some things never change. Move in column; fire in line. The basics of battlefield fire and movement.
