This really is a seismic experience when fired. It is a true 6# field gun!
The last game we played at the Hamilton Road was a hedge-row assault against dedicated German defenders by US troops using the Disposable Heroes rules. The US didn't do all that well. I have a difficult time exposing my armour to the hidden PaK-40 and we used too much smoke from our mortars. Still the game was enjoyable and any day we get to play is a good one.

That isn't a downed flyer; he's the jeep driver.

|The second line of hedgerows... with the PaK-40 lurking under the log,|
I seemed to be in command of the US side, and I proved too timid, even with the two Shermans and the M3 halftrack. I'm going to take blood-thirsty lessons.
One last thing... I actually showed off the remnants of my Warhammer Empire army in 25/28mm. Spears and pikes.
|Never been used. Such a shame.|
