From Pearl Harbor to Normandy
On December 7, 1941, the Japanese Air Force launched a surprise attack
on the American base of Pearl Harbor in the Pacific Ocean. In less than two hours,
the United States forces lost 13 warships, 188 aircraft and more than 2,000 men.

Assault infantry
The assault squads were trained to carry out attacks on enemy
positions. In order to do this they were armed with submachine
guns that provided excellent short range firepower, as well as a
large supply of smoke, antipersonnel and anti-tank grenades. These
troops specialized in urban combat; therefore the enemy tanks had
to avoid crossing areas where there may have been hidden assault
soldiers. The anti-tank grenades that they carried could take any
vehicle out of service, with the exception of the most heavilyarmored tanks.
In open country, assault soldiers were at a disadvantage, as
their submachine guns had less range and accuracy than the regular
infantry rifles. In this type of terrain, assault squads could
resort to smoke grenades to hide their movements and achieve their
objectives sooner.

Radio operators
These soldiers had the equipment they needed to request fire
support from artillery batteries deployed outside the battlefield.
Making use of their flare pistols, they could indicate
the position with smoke towards which the precision attack would
have to aim. After a few seconds of red smoke, the artillery
rounds would arrive.
The flare pistols had a limited range, less than that of other
infantry firearms. For this reason, the radio operator had
to get close to the enemy, by stealth, or by using obstacles on
the ground to hide his advance. Fire support was useful against
fixed positions, fortifications and gun emplacements that could
not be moved with sufficient speed to sidestep the bombardment.

Fixed anti-tank guns were efficient at defending a position, holding
a defense line and depriving the enemy of any possibility of using
its tanks. Fixed gun weapons, which generally meant those used in
tanks, were very easy to aim, fire accurately and needed less time
to reload.

In comparison with the tanks, the guns were small and easy to hide.
Depending on the reaction capability of the enemy crew, an anti-tank
gun could fire four or five times before receiving return fire.
The best strategy for keeping the guns operational was to order
a ceasefire so as not to reveal their position until a key enemy
vehicle came within range. And if their position was discovered,
to keep firing until neutralizing the enemy vehicle, then moving
the gun to another position outside of the enemy's visual range.
The tow trucks and light vehicles could be very useful for this purpose.
The greatest threat to anti-tank gun crews was enemy infantry and artillery. If
the opponent had artillery, it is very likely that they would use it if they detected
the presence of anti-tank guns. Based on this assumption, it was likely that the
explosions from their projectiles would quickly take out the crew. Enemy infantry
could also use its weapons and grenades if they got close to the target or they could
use longer range mortars. The self-propelled howitzers also posed a threat, as their
explosive projectiles could be fired in a parabola from protected positions, and could

The original M4 Sherman was deployed to North Africa in October 1942. At first, its
main 75 mm gun was more than sufficient to confront the German Panzer III, armed with
50 mm guns, and the Panzer IV, fitted with short 75 mm guns. However, very soon its
armament became insufficient to measure up to the Tiger I and Panther companies at
the European front. In spite of its superior numbers and artillery and allied air support,
the Sherman's inferiority against German tanks was obvious.
The situation worsened from June 1944, when the Panzer IV was refitted with a high
velocity 75 mm gun. The first M4A3E8(76)W, fitted with a new 76 mm high velocity
anti-tank gun, entered service in December 1944. It also had wider tracks to improve its
mobility and a new suspension system called E8. Based on this name and with its smoothness of handling and movement proved, this
new Sherman was named "Easy Eight" by its crews.

G 2x 0.30 caliber

The "Jumbo" was the assault variant of the medium M4 tank. Half way through 1944,
production was ordered for 254 units with heavily reinforced front armor, even better than
the Tiger I, with a 75 mm gun fitted to the T-23 turret. At first, it was thought that this model
would be used to assault beach fortifications during the Normandy landings, but for
operational reasons, it did not go into battle until August 1944.
Although the protection of the front part of the hull was heavily reinforced with respect
to the M4 Sherman, there was greater improvement to the turret armor, heavily armor-plated
and practically impenetrable even on the sides. For this reason, the Jumbo was especially
efficient in hull down positions, where only the turret would remain visible to the enemy.
Despite the hull side armor being thicker than the Sherman's front armor-plating, its flat
design with no inclination made it very vulnerable, especially to attack from hidden infantry

The armor and speed of movement of the M4A3E8(76)W were practically equivalent to those of the M4A3 Sherman, that is, not
sufficient for prolonged combat. However, its high velocity anti-tank gun allowed it to confront the German Panzer IV Ausf.H, Panther
and Tiger I tanks, and it could also surpass the range and power of any inferior category tank.
The M4's modified armor made it useful for surprise attacks, at the maximum firing distance possible while taking advantage
of the good mobility provided by its gasoline engine in order to withdraw before the enemy counterattack. Like other Sherman models,
the .50 caliber machine gun mounted on the turret roof provided excellent protection from light vehicles and infantry.

armed with anti-tank projectiles such as the Panzerschreck.
Its high velocity 75 mm gun was no different to the one mounted on the M1 Sherman, which restricted its capacity against enemy tanks.
Its strong armor meant that it could close in to distances where the weapon was more efficient and even then endure punishment from
the enemy. However, it was slower than other Shermans due to its heavier weight.
Given its characteristics, it was suitable for use as close support to infantry units during attacks on fortifications and enemy defense
positions protected by fixed anti-tank weapons and artillery. The most effective way to attack a Jumbo was to surround it with several
weapons, even if they were lower caliber, or ambush it with anti-tank infantry.

M26 Pershing Heavy tank
M 1500 C 40

M26 Pershing
In 1942, the United States
Army began to work on
a series of heavy tank
prototypes created from
the T20, the final result
of which was the T26E3.
Its production dates
from November 1944, and
although only 20 units
went into battle at
the European front in
early 1945, it played a
fundamental role in the
Korean War.
Its front armor was
comparable to that of
the Jumbo, although its
turret armor was less.
The inclination of the
hull plates facilitated
rebounds and considerable
increased the effective
protection, while the
front of the turret,
although it had the same
armor thickness, could be
more easily penetrated,
especially around the main
weapon mounting.

Based on the M4A3 Sherman, this tank replaced its coaxial machine gun with
a flamethrower. It was very efficient at short distances for attacking trenches and
buildings occupied by enemy infantry. However, in open country it was practically
useless.
It had a limited use against enemy vehicles, able to set fire to their engines and kill
the exposed crew. But the short range of the weapon meant it could only be used
as a last resort if the main 75 mm gun was not available.

companies. Owing to the limited penetration
capacity of its explosive projectiles, their use
against enemy tanks was very limited.
In combat it operated as a combination of a battle tank and self-propelled artillery.
Its 105 mm gun did not have as good a range as the field howitzers, but the armor
allowed it to get close to the enemy and survive artillery fire, and even fire from low
caliber anti-tank weapons. The 105 mm howitzer fired explosive projectiles in a low

A direct hit from a 105 mm projectile on an enemy tank would not destroy it, but it
could damage its tracks and its main gun, or wound its crew. On the other hand,
a direct hit on any light vehicle would render it unserviceable.

production work by ordering 1,500 units from each of the three companies.
One year after the manufacture of the first models, the United States Army opted for the
vehicle designed by Willys, and ordered 16,000 units from this company. However, the
lack of industrial capacity to cope with an order of similar size, the United States Army was

Supply trucks
All the tanks, armed vehicles and fixed guns had an
adequate supply of ammunition for prolonged battle.
However, it was possible that these vehicles could use
all their ammunition and still remain operational,
especially in the case of self-propelled howitzers and
artillery batteries which operated far from the front and
could use their projectiles without having suffered an
enemy attack.
The supply trucks transported projectiles for all the
army's weapons, from infantry mortars up to the largest
artillery guns, as well as fuel for vehicles that had
used up their reserves. The infantry could also be
resupplied from these trucks with ammunition, grenades
and anti-tank projectiles.
Protect your supply trucks and keep them away from enemy
units; the ammunition that they transport could blow up
if there are explosions nearby.

The armament of the P-51 Mustang
consisted mainly of six .50 caliber machine
guns mounted on the wings. For ground
attack missions, it was equipped with
two 907 kg bombs and up to ten 127 mm
rockets.
During the battle you can request air support: a P-51D Mustang will overfly the designated
area and fire its rockets. The attack is especially effective against fixed gun positions that
may have prevented the advance of your tanks, or for neutralizing enemy artillery used in
the rearguard. Nevertheless, the Mustang can be brought down on its approach if there
are enemy anti-aircraft guns in the area. Against German troops it is advisable to neutralize
the hidden Flak 88 batteries and request intervention from the Mustang.

The most iconic fighter of
the conflict appeared when
there was a requirement
for a suitable bomber
escort for incursions
in enemy territory. The
Mustang did not waste
time in showing the world
that this facet of the
air war was unrivalled.
Accompanying the
impressive B-17 Flying
Fortresses, the P-51s went
down in the history books.
