     The last units up for review are my 76mm Shermans and the M4A1 Shermans of the HQ and 2nd platoon.  Bring on Detroit's finest !

  M1 76mm gun32"/80cm2123+Stabliser.

     The HQ and the 3 tank platoon will be operating in the same area to offer support.  These tanks are M4A1s and resemble most of the same traits as their larger "brother". They have frontal armor of 6, side armor of 4 and top armor of 1. Firepower remains at 3+ and a  ROF of 2.  I will be using these as flank attacks and harassing infantry.

     The 76mm Shermans are a platoon of 5 tanks.  These tanks are decently armored with 7 frontal, 4 side and 1 top armor ratings. Their AT is a decent 12 and ROF of 2.  Firepower is a moderate 3+.  Don't forget to add in protected ammo and a 50 cal AA MG. These tanks are the major strike of my armor hammer.  Tank destroyers and infantry provide a powerful support role to these armor beast.

    Some units I look forward to adding to my future US forces are artillery, whether towed or mobile. Armored rifles platoons and an AOP.  I also on adding some airborne infantry in support roles in the near future.  Thank you for your time and reading our Tales of 2 Cities!

Joe ... aka Mezz
