I started the game with 2 units on Pios on the table along with the nebelwerfers, and the panzer IIIs in ambush. I kept a kompfgruppe of a small unit of pios, the Ferdinand, T34 and machine guns in reserve.
John came right at me with T34s up the middle, T70s on my left and SU122s on my right. Ipopped my PZ IIs from ambush right away to slow his T34s down. They seemed to do the trick and hung in for a while while they chipped away at the T34s. John had a hard time hitting them while they were hidden in the woods.
I shot the nebs at the recon on the right and my air attack was pretty unaffective the whole game.
