On the 3rd mission my love affair with Ambush! has come to a jarring halt. I've been playing for hours, lost 3 men, the tank has blown (literally) through town and exited off the map, I've only seen three Germans and they are just hanging around the bridge doing nothing after checking it for explosives (which was after the tank had already crossed it) Is there an end to this mission? Is there a point to this mission?

I'm still in Condition 2 with no end in sight and no direction or objectives. I've got 1 man still alive in town and the other 5 off in west podunk where the tank activated. I've been pretty strict about reading the paragraphs so I don't think I've missed anything although anything is possible.

Help?angry

I think there was an event, which let you check if you have an active soldier with an radio. If you do, than you get the information to win this mission. But if the German already check the bridge, I would say you lost the mission and can leave the map.
Me happens a similar thing in this mission, because I don't read in the mission description, that I receive a free radio and therefore I missed that event, too.

That makes sense. The errata at http://flyhi.de/games/ambush2.html has

I read the errata and have the radio but apparently never hit the random event that gives you the end condition. I guess I will exfil my troops and call it quits.

Thanks for the replies!
