GT36 report, end of Desert Fox scenario, fact/figures for the scenario

Aller en bas  Message [Page 1 sur 1]

Newcolt



GT 36 is now over. How the last GT of this scenario went?

Malta: Level I. Dice =”7” so no Air.

GT36/1: Weather Rainstorm. Axis receives again 44000 tons: 5100 to Tobruk, 7500 to Benghasi, the rest to Tripoli. Replacements are as follow: 10*Inf, 1*Recce, 1*75/18 H, 2*M13/40 and 60 medium trucks.

The Bristish receives 15*Inf, 1*LAA, 2*25p, 2*2p, 2*Recce, 3*Stuart and 72 medium trucks.

Air phase:  Weather Rainstorm on map C and D. No Air

Movement: nothing much for the entire GT, Axis choose to clear the minefields and minor fight went on.  

GT36/2: Weather is normal.

GT36/3: Weather is a sandstorm on map C and D again.

GT36 is now over, moving to the end of Desert Fox scenario.

Time for facts as I have writen down quite everything. The crucial problem in the real life of Rommel and his troops was supplies from start to beginning. So, the Quartermaster did his work with the entire cooperation of everey branch of the Army and/or nationality. Malta have been neutralized for the whole scenario so everything arrived safely and in abundance in Africa. That's a real change compared to the  real situation in 1941.  And that made the difference here.

Remember, at start, supplies were as follows :

Ammo: 4 000 points (1 500 at Tripoli) – Fuel: 12 600 points (3 000 at Tripoli) – Stores: 1 450 points (500 at Tripoli) – Water: 1 100 points (Unlimited at Tripoli).

What have been used (not included what have been lost thru GB bombing of Axis dumps):

.................................................Ammo:                    Fuel        Stores
Troops and 1st line trucks.............3 665                  58 816        30 253
2nd line trucks...................................................92 288
POW, Guards, replacements....................................4 089         3 020
Air...............................................732..................3 770         1 058
Constructions................................300..................1 000         2 580
Spill and hot weather..........................................117 048
                                    ------------------------------------------------------
Total.........................................4 697                277 011       36 911

All of which represent 90 326 tons of supplies.

The Axis received 240 403 tons of supplies and 51 597 tons of replacements points and trucks.

During this particular game of CNA scenario, Rommel was happy.

For the replacements received, figures are as follow (all Italian):

100 * Inf + 10* Inf (POW liberated) of which 45* Inf are still available for use as replacement. Most being used to revamp the Sabrata Infantry Division.
1* Recce

2* 75/18 H (all used)
5* 100/17 H (all used)
1* 105/28
16* CV33
1* L6/40
16* M13/40 (10 still available plus 6 on repair in Tobruk)
655 Trucks (reinforcements and replacements).

The Axis captured (and put to good use) Allies TOE of:

7* Recce (3 lost trying repairing – 3 still available)
3* VI light (2 lost trying reparing – 1 still available)
