The cityscale and certain other things reeeeally bothered me in the older piece, went back and updated it and threw in some really subtle colour. Updating older stuff to throw together a portfolio soon ready for Gamescom next month.
If the city falls, any hopes of keeping the fighting on the french side of the channel are crushed.
3 mechs wait in a canal, ready to respond as heavy cavalry during the defense of Caen. Reports are that the enemy has moved into the outer city and so far overwhelmed the armour elements deployed in the more open sections of the city with superior airpower. The fighting to come is going to be close up and personal in the tight streets and high buildings that make up the center. The high buildings, narrow streets and deep canals offer protection from the aerial threat, but urban combat is always a bloody nightmare.
