|Eventually, I dismount a small team of infantry from the front half track to help us with our soft flanks (see mid background).|
|The enemy tank is protected by the depression of the riverbed, out of sight for the moment. But the enemy pontoon bridge can be seen across the river.|
|A panoramic view of our limit of advance. Note the Soviet tank in the far background, just a few meters from the river. We pushed the AT gun into a hull-down-like position.|
|Target! Note how we can barely see the enemy tank. We advanced until we could just fire at it.|
|The enemy tank took six rounds until it was finally destroyed.|
|And then we moved our gun's bore toward the enemy infantry reinforcements coming across the river. With the help of the halftrack's MGs, the carnage was extreme.|
The fast advance towards the bridgehead left the enemy with no time to cross the river and deploy the reinforcements. If I would have dismounted my infantry right after contact with the enemy squads, the story would have been much more different.
