Great idea! My PC doesn't allow great graphic effects so I'll make up by adding some descriptions
Game #1: a very unfortunate game. Map: "Remagen".
On the eastern bank of the river Roer, two American brigades (AI 1 Expert, AI 2 Easy) impacted against my poor Heer mixed battlegroup (Defensive doc).
I held the ground very well. Even managed to capture a Sherman. The Sherman and 3 Pak 40&43 plus a single Pantherturm position held the line, reinforced by MG squads and grenadiers in trenches.
At one crucial moment, after having knocked out around 20 enemy tanks and repulsed waves of infantry, I decide to mover the Sherman from the central sector to the northern...bad idea. The AI was very smart and attacked in force the central sector. Without the Sherman to protect the flank, tanks and infantry broke through. It was only a matter of time for the other positions to fall. Damn, it was a pretty realistic game I have to admit...
In retaliation, I staged a counteroffensive by the Heer. Map: "Blazen Cove".
Against Defensive doc vs 2 US AIs, Exp & Easy.
Held the line very well this time, captured key points and even got the time&resources to call in a few tanks. Soon I switched from the defensive to the offensive, and the Americans suffered very heavy losses. I think 30+ AFVs lost and lots of infantry.
In the end I besieged their bases with (pic follows) a howitzer position reinforced by a Panzerwerfer.
