This Mission is a big scale Tank Battle.

The Battle of El Agheila was a brief engagement during the long Axis withdrawal from EL Alamein to Tunis.During the battle very fierce battles took place between Tanks

Although the Agheila position was naturally strong, being surrounded by salt marshes, soft sand or broken ground, restricting the ability of vehicles to manoeuvre, Rommel's assessment was that he would be able to hold the position only if he received artillery and tank replacements, if the Luftwaffe was strengthened and his fuel and ammunition supplies were restored.By this time, all available men and equipment were being diverted to Tunis, following the Allied landings of Operation Torch, to prevent Tunisia falling to an Allied advance from Algeria.

By the time of Rommel's visit to Berlin at the beginning of December, Mussolini and Hitler had accepted the reality of the situation and agreed for preparations to be made for a withdrawal to Buerat, some (400 km to the west and by 3 December, the un-mechanised Italian infantry had begun a retirement

AFTER ACTION REPORTS

Success.

The 7th Armoured Division was initially slow to organise, which proved disastrous as Luftwaffe Focke Wulfs in the area quickly overwhelmed the anti-air defences and inflicted substantial losses on the armour. Following the losses what remained of the division successfully captured the El Agheila supply port, cutting a path through the sandy shores of the Mediterranean and overwhelming the limited defenders. Heading inland and around predicted minefields and tank traps, however, the 7th was far less fortunate, encountering debilitating sandstorms and entrenched Tiger tanks, losing further numbers to these and the static defences before finally capturing the Axis’ supply depot.

As the day wore on, little remained of the initial armoured division for the final push south toward the German headquarters, but the remaining handful of tanks, composed of regrouped crews from auxiliary units and previously destroyed tanks, were able to mount a coordinated strike on the objective and capture it. Whilst all of the objectives were completed, the time taken and losses inflicted upon the 7th Armoured were tremendous, and represent a strong example of the remaining might of the retreating Axis.
