Biltz's Battlegroup (GGEAB1)
Years of combat have made your infantry a tough fighting force. The cutting edge of your attack is the imposing A7V panzer and Stoss (shock) platoons. This tank is superior to British tanks in practically every way. Mass them against a weak point in the enemy line and use its overwhelming firepower to tear open a gap in Tommy’s trenches.

Firestorm: Cherbourg & St. Lô Firestorm: Cherbourg & St. Lô
Firestorm: Cherbourg & St. Lô covers the US Sector of the Normandy campaign. Last year Firestorm: Caen was released and it was always my intention to do the same for the US landings. I really enjoy Firestorm campaigns. They give players the opportunity to play Flames Of War games in a larger context and give every game a greater meaning. The most important part is to enjoy the games and that is the right atmosphere in which to play Firestorm games. It is a group event and you should make sure the games are exciting but in a friendly manner.
