RSVP and Case Yellow Turn 2 Recap

HOLD THE LINES!!

After a rough turn one for the German invaders, they redoubled their efforts to break throught the French lines last week. Three more games were played in Turn 2, and the mission was 'Hold The Line'.

While making their way to engage the enemy, Shukur's French Tank Company was caught off-guard by a sudden attack from Khairul's Luftlandesturm Kompanie. It was a quick and brutal affair, one that embodied the principle of Blitzkrieg warfare. German Victory!

Upon hearing their colleagues were ambushed, Nick's French Tank Company took caution of their advance. That decision was critical as it allowed them to maneuver from an ambush set by Azlan's Leichte Panzerkompanie. The ambush was very well set-up and it turned into a very tightly contested battle. After a long hard fight, the French managed to gain ground and pushed the Germans back. French Victory!

On the Maginot Line itself, Arzmi's French Infantry were met with stubborn resistance by Iqbal's Leichte Pioneerkompanie. Despite the French's anti-air superiority against the Germans' Stuka, thus avoiding themselves from aerial bombardment, the 88s foiled every French advancements. It was a very long and gruelling battle (>10 turns) and turned into a war of attrition. Time had to be called as the battle has spoilt over into the wee hours of Saturday. Stalemate!

With the battle remained even after Turn 2, will Turn 3 proved to be the turning point? Will the French put their pride aside and call for help from their fellow Allies, or will the Germans finally able to breakthrough into France? Stay tune for next week.
