Of course,I got caught up in the game in the beginning and didn't take to many pictures until near the end. Here is what happened. We payed the scenario Counter Attack, with me as the one to Counter Attack. My mobile reserves came on the table catty corner to my onboard deployment witht he goal of taking one of the enemy's objectives. I deployed my infantry, machne guns, 2x AT guns and 2x man pack guns (70mm) in a defensive posture around my objective. I also kept the Cmd Platoon of the Tank company (2 Type 97s) on the board. My mobile reserve consisted of two 5 tank platoons of Type 89s. My opponent used an Early War Fallshirmjager list with a ton of guns and mortars.
The reserves rolled to come in on Turn 2 and proceeded to do well against the Geraman Infantry and MGs. Unfortunately the limited rage of the tanks guns caused problems dealing witht he German AT guns which could range the Obj. My tanks slowly tried to maneuver but ended up burning in the open as they maneuvered to get a shot at the guns.

|Bring the support weapons up to actually support the advance was really difficult and they were practically useless, especially the guns.|
|My Main Effort fights to drive the Germans more than 16" away from the objective, but a couple troops are still inside the radius when the final bell rings ending the game.|
