Next time Arras on British playthrough with 2276.
Arras is a huge pain in the a** with 23 units…24 rounds 1 SE Pz3F and 1 +1 Movement SE Gebirsjaeger.
Definitely bringing both 8.8’s, Panzerjaeger, Albert Kirscher, +1 Movement Pz4D, Somua, all Tac Bombers, both Sturmpanzer’s, and 3 or 4 10.5cm arty’s. That leaves 8 more units that I need to decide between infantry, Fighter’s, and Recon’s. Thoughts?
I have started Wassigny, but will be a while before I can attempt Arras as much to consider based on the enemy I face in that battle, again thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks and as always…Stay Lutheran my Friends
