CMBN – Naughty Part One

Written by Phil on . Posted in Combat Missions, Latest

 

I have recently just got back from a holiday/expedition in Scotland kayaking, Wild Camping, Hamocking and drinking far to much single malt whiskey. Just before I left I started The Market Garden campaign In CMBN. I just found out I have been put on the 3 hour naughty step for taking to long in my last mission. Oh well at least my main worry now apart from the German Army is ammunition as apposed to time. 20 minutes to clear a village and take out a bunker with just 1 platoon is a bit tough in my opinion.

So here I am with 3 hours to play with (it won’t take that long) I have 2 platoons with some mortar support and a heavy machine gun. Below is the situation and my mission is take the Heurman Lock Bridge and the strongholds on the island. These strongholds include a MG bunker covering the road, HMG and anti-tank gun of some description on the otherside of the river.

Situation

CM Normandy 17-04-2015 18-49-27-205

Huge amounts of open space giving the enemy defenders great fields of fire.

 

 Phase One

CM Normandy 17-04-2015 18-50-23-23

Keep it simple. 1 Platoon suppress the bunker. 2 Platoon approach from the left flank. Which will give me the option to use 2 Platoon as fire support once in position.

 Start

CM Normandy 18-04-2015 10-20-15-863

2 men from 2 platoon get nailed by an AT gun hidden in the woods on the island. 1 Platoon knock out the bunker.

I am happy that 2 platoon have manged to get across the wide open ground with just 2 casualties. I platoon do a great job of suppressing and knocking out the bunker covering the road. I need to get 2 platoon into a good position to provide cover for 1 platoon and suppress the AT gun.

More to follow!
