Mission Result: Stalin smiles (Win), Destroyed Scott's objective while preserving my own
Units destroyed: 1 to 2:
Destroyed Scott's smaller tricked out squad of vets. Would have had a great shot at killing 2-3 more if the game had lasted one more turn. But I feel that one should place winning the scenario over fighting against the scoring system, which is what I would have been doing by trying to extend the game to bulk the killed-loss differential
I lost my HQ. And because I took the objective on turn 3 and my flamethrower failed its 1st reserve roll I understand it to count as lost as well. Still, I feel going for the scenario win outweighs worrying about kill ratio.
Overall Result - Again, won the scenario but drew on kill points. I probably did not actually kill that many more points than I lost. Although, given one more turn I would have been nearly certain to bag Scott's enormous and super tricked out squad (probably 200+ pts on its own) and maybe one of the half-tracks and HQ in return for a decent chance he gets my PTRD and maybe the damaged SMG squad.
MVP votes - We did not discuss this, but my vote would probably go to the T-34 for how much it terrified Scott's half-tracks and for the havoc it wreaked on the squad I killed. Hitting with the HE 2 turns in a row played a big part in dealing with them (maybe next time I will remember to roll for all the hits under the template, too!)
Logistics - Qualify for both.
