I've never spoken to ForbiddenEwe before;  I just read the posts in this thread.  By clicking on his (or anyone's) forum profile I can see his last log in date.

It's been such a long time I don't know when or if this battle will happen now.  He must be very busy, we all know or can imagine what it's like moving and starting a new job!  Anyway, I'm hoping we can still do it some day.

So sorry about that guys, it's been a really stressful move. 12 hour shifts plus I'm still having trouble getting internet set up at my apartment. (What is this, the 90s?) I will try like heck to get it by NEXT Sunday, Jan. 27 at 7 PM EST, as I work Saturday nights. Once again, truly sorry.

Sorry for everyone trying to get the last Crusader (Indiana Jones, heh), I gave it to the person who called it first. Consider yourselves alternates if people can't make the time.

Depending on how events go I may grab that Pz IV position. But so far no bets as it's rare for me to get on even though I've been playing the game forever now and I only play the game as a side hobby...

Also just going to point out the Batte of Alam el Halfa took place in 1942. This is unimportant. But in 1941 the idea to switch over to the KwK 40 L/43 happened so a stock Pz IV would not likely have been on the battlefield. More rather both Pz IV's would have the L/43.

Note: You don't have to take my advice at all you can just ignore me but I would rewrite the German tank requirements to the following(This is going off of some experiance from my WW2 history classes and what I've read I'm sorry I didn't notice this earlier):

1 StuG III Stock
2 PzIV, Both with 7.5cm KwK 40 L/43
3 PzIII , 2 with 5cm KwK 38 L/42, 1 with 7.5cm Kwk 37 L/24
2 PzII, 1 with 2cm KwK 38 L/55, 1 with 2cm Flak 38 L/112

Not sure about the 7.5cm on the PzIII yet but the date it entered service on the PzIII says 1942 so having 1 could show for the just started production of the Ausf. N. Each of the german vehicles should be fully upgraded too because the PzIV used the 120TRM which was put in service for use in 1939 so by 1942 all PzIV's(And III's) used the 120TRM.

In short only a few weapon changes and all German vehicles that used the Maybach 120TRM should have it.

Also, If wanted I can go by the "Limies" to see what they should be using for this battle.

We have a Pz IV space open but you'll have to wait for the OP.

I was online literally all day and night but received no contact all night about it and I was scheduled to be in it.

Just a guess.. but it didn't happen?

Is the battle going to be happening at all with some sort of reschedule? I can schedule this battle if everyone is okay and I'll contact you all when it's ready to go.

Alright I guess since the OP made no comment about me giving a time and date. I'll start the battle and give a date.

If at all I'll try to run the battle either Friday the 29th or Saturday the 30th at around 5PM or 6PM.
