Armour Battles features three armoured battles set in Lorraine, France in 1944 as Patton’s 3rd Army advances towards the Rhine. The first battle is a small meeting engagement between US and German tanks. The next battle has the Americans attacking the Germans. This is followed by the Americans attempting to break through the German positions as the Germans counter-attack with a Tiger I platoon.
Easy-to-play rules emphasize command-and-control decisions over complex combat resolution mechanics.
Rapid Command Pulses and opposed dice rolls keep players constantly involved.
Unit Scale: The Platoon is the basic unit in the game and is represented by a model vehicle, a base with three infantry figures, a heavy weapons team, or a gun and its crew.
