Turn 2 and 3 saw German re-enforcements spill onto the battlefield. Two more glider platoons entered onto the table from the northern side. One platoon quickly secured Meleme village and the other went into an FUP (forming up point) in preparation for the attack on Hill 107. Then finally the support platoons arrived with mortars, HMG's and Light Anti tank guns and took up positions along the Tavronitis River bed. With all infantry platoons and the support platoons in a support by fire positions, MAJ Koch was now ready for the next phase of the assault, so he called in an artillery mission onto Hill 107. With such a high volume of fire coming down on them the New Zealanders were driven into their fox holes and pinned. This was enough to effectively reduce their rate of fire and before the smoke and dust had cleared the German Paras were amongst them. The hill was attacked from three sides and the Kiwis did not stand a chance - they died bravely. With two objectives now taken and only the airfield still in Allied hands MAJ Koch dug his troops in and waited for the eventual counter attack to come.
A call from MAJ Koch for a fire mission on Hill 107 brings the battery command and his guns into action and within minutes the hill is covered in a thick cloud of smoke and dust.
MAJ Koch then orders his troops back up the hill. There will be no stopping them this time.
A 37mm AT gun fires in support of the attack.
Eventually the hill is cleared of Allied troops and the guns taken.
