LIGHT TANKS AND LIGHT TANK SCENARIOS
The most common light tanks in the US Army were the M3 and M5 Stuart and the M24 Chaffee. This is a Light Tank Variant to Patton’s Best with the M5 Stuart and M24 Chaffee. It includes a Reccon Scenario and Screening Scenario.
The After Action Report Cards, Tank Cards and the details for the M5, M5A1 and M24 can be found separately.
Your Light Tank Company (D-Coy) is sent on a reccon mission to scout for enemy troop locations, advance or withdrawal routes or advantageous positions. It will be the first type of mission you will find in this variant. The other are hidden in the game play and can come alive in the AARs or during the briefing by using your imagination. During the reccon mission your company is sent to scout for enemy troop locations and to estimate their strength. Battalion HQ already knows what the level of Enemy Resistance for the Day is after reports from the Cavalry Reccon Squadaron. What you need to do is to move into an area and locate the enemy and find how large force he has there. Avoid combat if you can and continue your mission until the day ends. If you follow up later with your medium tanks you will know automatically what the level of resistance is in the areas you have scouted. There is no need to wait 15 minutes for estimated enemy resistance.
D-Company is sent on a mission to find enemy reccon units and destroy them before they destroy you or find the location of your units. As in the Reccon Scenario, Battalion already knows the level of Enemy Resistance for the Day. What you need to do is to move into an area and locate and ambush enemy reccon units, but there is also a chance that they have seen you and ambush YOU.
I have play-tested this only a few times so there might be buggz here and there. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me.
