    There was an error in my OOB post. The initial setup was 6 Panzer Divisions, not 4. So you have taken 33% losses not 50%.

        0600, September 17th, 1940 (Start Turn 9)

        Army Report

        Successful landings were conducted at Bexhill, Hastings and Eastbourne yesterday. 8th, 26th and 28th Divisions are ashore in good order, though some losses were sustained. A British division counterattacked from NW of Eastbourne (the Sussex Downs) but was beaten off, with the British taking losses. A further British division which formed part of the Kent Front reserve has left its previous location near Sevenoaks and has presumably been committed in the direction of the new landings.

        15th Panzer, 1st Mountain and 17th Infantry assaulted the Romney Marsh but failed to break enemy lines. The enemy position in Romney looks tenuous now 26th Division is in the enemy's rear.

        34th Division in Brighton held off an enemy attack but is unlikely to last there too much longer as they are under attack in Corps strength and tanks cannot be too far off. If they are an obstacle for another day or two it may prove of great value to the troops in East Sussex.

        7. Flieger-Division's remaining troops in Portsmouth were overrun and surrendered.

        Supplying the new landings is an issue - see KM report below.

        Luftwaffe Report
        Our bombers acted all out in support of the ground troops once more. Little RAF resistance was encountered and few losses were suffered. It is now recommended that the bomber formations go into the delayed rest rotation.

        Kriegsmarine Report
        No enemy activity.

        Until the RN re-appears our main challenge is supply. We currently have only two naval counters, one of which is Gneisenau. One counter is required at each landing area to ensure supplies. Recommendation is to withdraw Gneisenau and to rotate the other unit between fronts so that both areas receive some supplies.

                September 18th, 1940 - Turn 10

                Heer Report

                Yesterday's attack in the Romney Marsh area succeeded. 15th Panzer has pushed across the marsh terrain and is now available to operate on the front of the new landings. While in good shape it should be noted that this division is tired and in poor (though not critical) supply.

                Also note that, while our beachheads have joined up, the Romney Marsh is very poor terrain over which to move equipment and supplies so securing the road junction at Maidstone - still occupied by the well-ug-in New Zealanders - must now be a priority.

                On the West side, 26th and 28th Divs have pushed inland and have taken up defensive positions temporarily. They face a number of enemy Infantry Divisions.

                8th Div securing the West flank at Eastbourne faced another counterattack, this time by the Canadian division, which was beaten off.

                34th Div at Brighton withstood another corps-scale counterattack, including the Matilda heavy tanks of the British 1st Armoured Division. 34th's supply situation is now critical. If the British renew their attack tomorrow then these units will probably be overrun. if the British do not, and naval resupply is arranged, then 34th can probably last a little longer.

                At sea are 24th Division, Infanterie-Regiment-Grossdeutschland (motorised infantry) and a Corps HQ with associated artillery. We also propose to ship 8th Panzer division to Dover today. All these units will become effective tomorrow (turn 11).

                Luftwaffe Report
                We have commenced rotation of some tired bomber formations into rest. Little RAF activity was reported yesterday with no effective opposition being given to our flights in support of ground troops.

                Kriegsmarine Report
                Our available supply capacity was shifted to ensure full supplies reached the Sussex beachhead. There are enough stocks in Kent for the next few days. Once the beachheads are fully joined up they will become one entity for supply purposes.

                No sign of the Royal Navy yesterday. Gneisenau is in Cherbourg temporarily but could be deployed to secure supply lines to Brighton. Some damaged destroyers currently under repair will become available on turn 14, giving a strength of 3 counters. We must assume that the RN is also conducting repairs.

                        • September 20th, 1940 - Turn 12

                          Army Report

                          Our offensive, which began on the 10th, was a partial success. We have succeeded in forcing the British to withdraw from their position around Maidstone, but did not succeed in destroying any of the troops in the salient.

                          On the 10th, 5th Panzer Division and 26th Infantry Division attacked in the direction of Sevenoaks and pushed the British back. On the 11th these units attacked the hex North East of Sevenoaks, while 8th Panzer (supported by 33rd Infantry)attacked along the coast at Chatham. Both of these assaults succeeded but British resistance was tough. This caused 8th Panzer to lose touch with its supporting infantry for most of yesterday afternoon, allowing the British to evacuate the salient in the direction of Chatham.

                          At the same time, the British mounted a very strong armoured counter-attack, supported by artillery and bomber aircraft, against 8th Panzer's spearhead and we were forced back, giving up another hex of the ground gained. The British armoured force consists of at least a reinforced division and they are employing many of the heavy "Matilda" tanks which our anti-tank weapons find difficult.

                          The troops which were engaged in the assault are now very tired an in urgent need of reinforcement. Fortunately there are 5 Infantry divisions now available as the reduction of the salient means our lines are considerably shorter; 7th, 17th, 24th, 58th, and 1st Mountain Divisions are on hand and fairly fresh. 4th Panzer Division will land near Dover today (naval situation permitting).

                          The British made another Corps-scale attack at Brighton. Both sides suffered heavy losses but the remnants of 34th Division are holding on, with the Luftwaffe providing supplies.

                          Luftwaffe Report

                          There has been heavy fighting in the air on both of the last two days, with RAF fighters attempting to intercept our air support missions and RAF bombers launching their own tactical missions. The RAF appears more confident now than at any previous point. We should consider renewing raids on enemy airbases, particularly fighter airbases - these proved costly but if the RAF is fighting to protect its own airfields then it isn't interfering with our missions.

                          Two squadrons of Stukas, with fighter cover, engaged the enemy fleet in the Channel and succeeded in damaging a British battleship and sinking a number of destroyers.

                          Kriegsmarine Report

                          A Royal Navy squadron consisting of two Nelson-class battleships, HMS Hood, and a number of destroyers has entered the Channel and is attempting to interfere with supply operations at Hastings. So far, with Luftwaffe assistance, we have escape with only light losses. However this is unsustainable.

                          The only naval unit on hand is Gneisenau, though we could request assistance from the Luftwaffe.

                          Now that the two beachheads have strong communication links, the optimum place for supply operations is Dover, as the rail network in eastern Kent has been repaired.

                            • 7 divs, a brigade, and 6 regiments showing on the board, to stop our 6 Divs and 7 Regiments... and they are not succeeding. Our men gain ground!

                              Imagine the ouches on their side.

                              • can you guys get one more division or regiment into the port that cut off.
                                That seems like a great bang for your buck fight they got to keep you surrounded which looks like a three to one exchange as far as keeping enemy troops tied down
