Plot Edit

Baker and his men are outside St. Come talking with Allen & Garnett and Leggett talking who is the better DC hero, Batman or Superman. Mac interrupted their talk and ordered Baker to assault St. Come so the paratroopers use it as a rest stop before the attack on Carentan. Baker's squad are ambushed by mortar teams and Germans. They managed to fend them off while avoiding mortar fire in the fields. They managed to reach St. Come and neutralize the mortar team and the Germans defenders.

They reach a house where the Germans are stationed and clear it with the 4 Fs. They rendezvous with Mac and revealed that a Panzer tank is in the town and the anti tank weapons are opposite of the building. This meant that Baker have to go behind the enemy lines to destroy the tank. After Baker's men defeat the Germans, they reach a small plaza where they confront Germans and a Panzer tank.

Baker's squad suppressed the tank and the Germans while Baker rushed to the Panzerfaust crate and kill the Germans in his way. He grabbed a Panzerfaust and used it to destroy the tank. After the combat is over, Mac commended Baker over his bravery and irony.

The StuG Tank - Col. Antal Briefing Edit

The StuG Tank (1)
This is the German Stungeschutz IV, commonly called the Stug.

The StuG Tank (2)
Turretless assault guns like this were used to support German Infantry units, to knock out machine gun position and allied tanks.

The StuG Tank (3)
The Stug was armed with a high velocity 75mm cannon, mounted in a cast mantlet. the 75mm cannon could easily penetrate Allied light tanks.

The StuG Tank (4)
The Stug's disadvantages are that it has no turret and the vehicle must move to face the target for the main gun to fire. In Brothers in Arms, you can use this information to your advantage when you attack the Stug with an anti-tank weapon or an allied tank.
