Montélimar – 11 Panzer Almost gets Rolling

  4th Scenario -- more time -- 11 PZ gets a KG chit and might break through to the evaculation route.  They only have seven or eight turns (an afternoon, two night turns and some early morning) before the US 36 Division starts arriving.  The KG worked well for an assault when most of the panzer grenadiers were still on the wrong side of the Roubion busy changing course to back up the Panthers which have blasted across the Roubion elsewhere. 

   Anyway, here is the KG chit:

  At dusk the French start to pull back, giving 11 Panzer a chance at concentrating on opening an escape route.  Task Force Butler will probably shift to block the route, but this will probably let the panthers lose just as the rest of the 36th (Texas) division starts arriving in force just after sunrise:
