Get task force of PzIIIM, CV Autocannon, Recce autocannon, Spahrecce and PzGren with theirs halftracks and 2 empty halftrucks from other pzgren and spahrecce infantry that you deployed elsewhere to hold line. Cant remember the points but if there are any left add cv autocannon to help pzgren+spah inf defend rest of line.
With such group you can easily push up the frontline in A as long as enemy isnt blobbed in one place or forcing you to fight on open ground where his FSV will eradicate your pzgrens.
Push empty halftracks with recce and cv autocannon forward, counter any enemy vehicles with pzIII m and if range is too close to 200m let pzgrens duke it out with enemy inf/at. Single AT guns that open up under 700m will melt under fire of 2 autocannons and 3x 3vet halftracks any day of the week. Get mortar truck asap.
Obviously that works when you play hedge map vs non-vehicle spam deck such as French, 3rd or Guards.
Sounds interesting, gonna test this next time. Havent played too much with the PzIIIM as an opening Unit.
The fact that I spread thin always made my opponent overreact at the front where he wasnt present. Due to having three groups and most opponents I had only attacked at two locations helped me to draw his attention away. But I will try your approach.
