German Convoy Attacked ... (game report)

A german convoy carrying some of the latest radio equipment for german forces in Normandy is targetted by the resistance under direction of two british commandos.

---oXo---

The attacking force waits in cover to hit the front of the convoy
They duck down out of sight as a german patrol vehicle passes them on the way to the next town on the route
Other groups of resistance fighters wait in cover along the road .....
The german convoy moves down the road ....
The front of the convoy comes under fire, the two lead motorbikes are shot up ...
The back of the convoy is hit and a kubelwagon is knocked over by grenade blasts ...
As the first vehicle at the front of the convoy bursts into flame the german infantry escort scrambles out of their lorries ....
and open fire, spraying the nearby hedges with SMG fire ....
The resistance fighters are taking casualties from german fire ....
The lorry at back of the convoy is hit and the germans nearby are killed by LMG fire from the nearby wood, however the resistance have taken too many casualties and decide to withdraw...
The resistance melt away into the nearby woodland.  The german convoy has taken a beating but the lorry with radio equipment has not been damaged - troops from the nearby town soon some to their aid...

    1. We used Hit the Dirt WW2 Skirmish Rules (obtained from http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/freewargamesrules/images/b/b6/Hitthedirt.pdf/revision/latest?cb=20141012134350).
