Morschauser Modern: Tank Escort

For the second play of this scenario, I used the point values given in Morschauser and changed the OOB:

US: 1 mortar, 1 HMG, 1 tank, 3 rifle unit
Germans: 1 HMG, 1 1/2 track (treat as scout car) 1 ATG, 1 tank

Tank Escort Redux!

The American advance..

Dastardly Germans lie in wait.

The 1/2 track is knocked out early by 1st Platoon and 3rd Platoon's assault on the ATG begins soon after.

The gun is captured, but the MG-42 and PZ IV have come out to play.

Obligatory Instagram-like vignette.

Despite some wounded, 2nd Platoon takes out the German armor.

1st and 2nd Platoons take a hammering from the HMG positions before 2nd Platoon is able to close assault and eliminate the threat. 3rd Platoon managed to flank them, but it was an academic exercise.

This game proved better balanced. I think one more HMG or perhaps a platoon of infantry for the Germans would have been just about perfect.
