Sunday Gaming — Game 2
The mortars start the game by dropping smoke, with every round going hilariously off target.
The "Navy Brat" M3A1 Stuart rumbles onto the board, crashes its way through the forest, and in an unlikely display of marksmanship (possibly making up for not killing anything last game) promptly puts several MMG rounds through the veteran IJA officer. This begins an interesting trend…
One 500 lb bomb later and seven IJA veterans are rather less threatening for being spread across several dozen feet of landscape.
Bollocks. I had hoped they'd put up more of a fight.
Thus, 7 more IJA veterans are killed by the strafing run, leaving one man who gives exactly zero fucks about all the aircraft overhead and decides that staying around will let him stick someone with his bayonet.
The final act of the IJA is to a put a light howitzer round directly into the engineer team, cutting down three of them.
