Finally played Platoon Forward with Combat Patrol and my SS squad in Russia 1941. This platoon has been successful and their platoon leader promoted to company command. The scenario I rolled up was defend against counterattack. Two platoons had attack into a factory complex and dislodged the russians. They had an ATG and one squad to defend. My platoon was sent up to reinforce!
Oberschar(furher) Kehl generous/wealth Gr II +1
Unterschar Weiss egotistical/wealth Gr I
Schar Kurtzon nazi zealot/ wealth Gr I
Schar Vaughn cautious/ wealth GrI
The ATR strikes home!!! ( Glad that wasn't a KV-1)
Great battle. When I designed the scenario that is the knife edge conclusion I was going for. Oberscharfurher Kehl's leadership was key in getting 3rd squad moving. Am really happy with the tweaks I have done to the leadership rules. Post battle Weiss is on WIA and will miss one mission. 3rd squad's morale is improved to NL. Company is so happy that not only does the epic story make the rounds ( and grows bigger all the time!) but the platoon is promised either a MMG or MTR for their next mission.
Am still really digging Combat Patrol. It plays smoothly and gives credible results using individual soldiers without bogging down. I am also really happy with my Creascent Root buildings
For those of you that want to try this the USSR had

2 squads with 2 Gr II leaders and 1 Gr I and 1 Gr I commissar
