This is quite the milestone.     You don’t get a similar metric for FRP games – usually you celebrate levels.   Still, playing any one game 15,000 times shows that it’s got staying power.

It took 1 month and 17 days to go from 14,000 to 15,000 matches, which shows how determined and dedicated I have become with this game.

For this match I selected the fantastic S-51.    Heavy camo and Sixth Sense active.

Arties in this position are best placed on the other side of the railroad tracks, and behind a slight rise of land towards the edge of the map.     The slight rise helps protect against any arty hunters.    I needn’t have worried.

At this point, the battle is well in hand.   The only question is how many more hits can I get in before the win.

Got close to the E25 as well.    Respectable XP, but how useful was I to the team ?

Stug III moves up to 14th place, with the S-51 in 16th.    About 90 matches for the goal, for the Stug III – beat the 4502B.
