I was -and still am a bit- very smug at getting 2 Sagger kills after lots of misses in previous games, I may just have found the right technique! Inc...

Vorsprung durch Technik!
Indeed! Actually, in our second game Lawrence and I had T-34 43's and Phil a KV1, against a solo run trio of Panzer IV G's, and we lost again! (The KV of course surviving unscathed!
All in all a good day for the Panzerwaffe!

Re: Use of the Tanker Deck in 1 off games.

Of course, you could always use my points system, which, while not perfect, does give a more balanced game than the original points system in the rulebook! http://herkybird.tynesidewargames.co.uk/misc.html
