A small insignificant town..not worth much..no factories..no production points. I notice on the map the axis have put an attack on it. The town I was in at the time had been battling on for 5 days straight, we were holding the axis off fairly well..I decided I was not needed there. I decide Ill go set up an anti tank gun in ambush at this other town just now being attacked. I spawn in as infantry first to take a look around..I hear tanks..lots and lots of tanks..maybe 3 km away...the town looks clear of enemy infantry at the moment...I go to the capture points and looks just to be sure. ALL our flags are safe..so I decide to spawn a 57mm cannon and see if I can get a tow. Then all hell broke loose..it was amazing. Im hooking my cannon up to a truck when I hear the sound of planes...I look up and see the flight formation of HE 111..each with 2200kg of bombs. .they had already let loose the payload...I can just start to hear the bombs whistle....I knew I was dead...nothing I can do. Thats not what killed me ...as the bombs are falling..a flight of 15 JU 87 dive bombers come in at tree top level...each carrying 500lb bombs...I watch as they let the bombs go...in secs ill be dead. Just as the JU 87 are letting loose...about 10 BF 109 fighters come screaming in at 400mph..straffing the army base..thats what got me. As I lay there bleeding out..the bombs hit. It was just totally amazing..they killed everyone within 500 meters of me. At least 30 planes hit us with precision timing...maybe within 30 seconds they all hit us...we lost 8 tanks..5 anti air guns..2 anti tanks guns and many infantry in 60 seconds tops. I spawn back in as infantry..no chance at getting an artillary piece out of the base alive...the bombers are gone but the fighters are till straffing the streets and buildings..army base...constantly..one after the other...some late ju87 are still dropping bombs. With the noise of the bombers gone I can hear the enemy tanks getting closer to town..maybe 1 km out. I run from building to building till I reach the edge of town..I peek out a window...to see maybe 25 axis 4g stugs..the toughest tank...lined up on a hillside all hull down just turrents showing over the ridge. Our tanks never had a chance..most died within minutes of spawning. As im peeking out the window I see the axis sniper 1000m out..I see the flash..Im dead. I respawn as a sapper infantry..4, 20lb charges..im going to try and sneak out of town around behind them...So I spawn in....then I hear the trucks..the tanks have opened fire..the sound is deafening. I could barely hear the truck approaching tearing thru the bushes...its almost on top of me before I see it..it was packed with axis infantry and towing 4 cannons. He is going to run me over at about 50mph...I toss a nade straight up..it lands in the truck bed....15 kills one nade...I dodge the truck....the cannon he is towing all deploy....I get an 88mm shell point blank to my head. I respawn as infantry again..it was a massacre...as the big tanks stay on the hill pounding anything that moves...10 fast light tanks roll into town..I manage to sap two of them. Then the next wave of planes came..maybe 30 bombers...I take cover this time in a building...the building blows up. I spawn again. The infantry then came.. They were everywhere..attacking every side of the city at once...we had maybe 15 men at this point.( there was much bigger battle going on elsewhere] ..there must have been at least 100 enemy infantry from the reports coming in from around town..not counting the tanks and planes they had. I send out a message "111"....that means holy shit this town is screwed. That gets about 40 more people to spawn in the town. too little, too late. Then the enemy paratroopers came..I counted 30 paras just from the first plane..then 4 more planes of paras come..maybe 100 paras dropping right down into town..I killed 5 in the air..another 4 as they hit the ground...something kills me. I respawn..then the messages start..axis have captured this building..that building..cap after cap our flags were falling one after the other...people are screaming at each other in chat..tempers flaring..we were getting pwned. It can take days to take one town..the axis rolled that city in 60 minutes. It was the most amazing bit of well co-ordinated attack I have ever seen...they proceeded on to take the next 5 surrounding towns within 3 hours. They wiped out 2 divisions of our army in 4 hours, it will be days before those divisions are back up to strength today we will try and get the towns back...payback time. worldwar 2 online..as soon as we get the new game engine with all the eye candy..Ill be trying to get you guys interested.
