It's 1400, 1 Sept 1939, and since this morning's victory there have been several marches and counter-marches, with the German forces attempting to keep the Poles bottled up in the Kutno pocket. Orders come in from 4th Panzer Division headquarters via the wireless: "Achtung, Panzer," the Poles are attempting a breakout, sending an armored spearhead south across the river and immediately turning west. KG Klink finds itself on the northern flank of this rupture, and is ordered to send all armor he can muster to contain it.
LtCol Klink personally leads a mixed force of armored cars and Panzer II, III, and IVs to meet the enemy tanks head on.
The Poles roll a firefight, plus a random event of "Reinforcements," so they get two rifle squads with anti-tank rifles.
Colonel Klink had his driver step on the gas, moving from the northeast corner south towards Sgt Mangold's Pz IV.
