The 14th made a strong showing at Atturbury this year. We took the field with 3 Stuarts. The action started on Friday night with troops from both sides deploying into the field. The bulk of each side chose to hit the barracks for a good nights sleep prior to combat. We woke up to rain. Cold rain.
Our initial contact with the enemy was on a road, of course, resulting in dead tanks. As we got off the connecting roads and accessed some open terrain the armor really did well. Many shells were bounced off of the Tiger! I like to think that a few of them may have taken off a track or scratched the paint. Later action included wiping out the German occupied village with a rear attack. Then a massive thunderstorm sent everyone back to the staging area. As troops began to leave a decision was made to have a tank only engagement. The Panzer III took us up on the offer. This repowered machine was impressive, very fast with suprising rate of fire. A few skirmishes later we were all done for. A succussful trip with no mechanical failures!
