The tank commander shouts to the near by rifle sections and gets a quick low down of the situation. On hearing of the near by German positions he orders his gunner to open up on the knocked out Panther tank to his front. The high explosive shell hits the tanks and shatters the recon squad taking cover behind it. At last Lt Proctor sighs, something has finally gone his way for once.
As the sound of the British medium tank gets nearer all the Germans can do is stay low and keep out of sight. AT grenades are passed around the squad and the Panzerfaust is prepared.
