|Map of the AO with several pre-selected battle positions I've created|
|Unbuttoned and looking through binoculars|
In my excitement I order "Fire!" We do, with a sabot round, which isn't terribly effective versus infantry.
|Enemy troops through the TIS|
Once in place, we can see some enemy PCs to our left. I switch the gunner to the coax machine gun, and we assault the infantry.
It doesn't take long to clear out the enemy troops
From our new position we engage the PCs across the valley.
As we move more enemy vehicles come into view. Again, it doesn't take long to destroy them.
|Hull down bad guys|
Approaching Phase Line Mosel and the destroyed tanks.
Burning OPFOR armor through the trees.
An external view of my Leopard 2A4.
I'm suspicious of that tree line ahead. I order a cautious advance.
There are PCs and infantry at the edge of the woods. We open up, quickly destroying the PCs. Again I switch to coax and move forward to engage the infantry.
Someone had an ATGM. With the destruction of my tank the mission is over.
I probably should have popped some smoke and sought a better battle position faster both times I lost a vehicle. Commanding a tank in a realistic simulator like SBPro PE is a complex task! Hopefully with more practice I won't constantly get my crew and my wingmen killed as much.
