HITT WW1 British vs Germans - Big Push Part 2

Over the Top!
The British forces consist of three separate Battle Groups each headed by a Tank. The Reserve Battlegroup of Cavalry, Field Artillery & Armoured Cars will be activated and deployed once the 2nd Trench is reached.  They will then move forward for the 'Breakthrough'.  Support will come in the form of Airpower, the Dreaded Barrage, Heavy Artillery and Poison Gas.

The German force is split into three. The First Trench, static troops without a PiP roll, when they break they'll fall back to the Second Trench. The Second Trench, have more forces, with a PiP roll to adjust troops & counter the Dreaded Barrage OR call in the Fly Boys. The Reserve Force of Tanks, Troops and Cavalry will be activated once the Brits hit the Second Trench Line. They then get 2 PiP Rolls and can then move to the front.
