I am interested to here how XXX Corp gets by Valkenswaard in the early game. The Germans can get to tanks with decent TQ and range 4 weapons on the southern edge of the city overlooking Club Route. XXX Corp has to approach in column on a raised road through clear terrain.

So how do players solve this problem. Run the gauntlet of fire hoping for minimum damage? Try to go around the city to the east?

1) Airstrikes on the armor and 88 there at the beginning of the game
2) suppress the town hexes of Valk. with your barrages. Probably plan them for turn 1700 and/or 1900.
3) Drive around like you said, but I've been going to the West. East is blocked by streams and other terrain IIRC
4) Stop for nothing
5) Get a bit of luck

Just did this a bit in our campaign game the other night.
