1. Pancerna is an Allied Armored division in Steel Division.
Unwavering in their desire for vengeance, the Free Poles were the vanguard of the First Canadian Army. Adopting light cavalry tactics more suited to their spirit, they harassed the Germans up to Mont Ormel, where they stood their ground alone against the tide of two armies.
Their commander, Stanisław Maczek, was pioneer of motorised warfare, and Poland's best armoured general, Maczek's lightning offensive ahead of the Canadians came very close to sealing the Falaise pocket.
A WW1 and later Polish war veteran, Maczek was a pioneer in combined armed battlegroups and motorised tactics.
Remaining in the army during the Interwar, his experience made him the perfect choice as commander of the first Polish motorised brigade in 1938.
During the campaigns of Poland and France, Maczek displayed outstanding skills and bravery, but was finally forced to seek refuge in the UK with what remained of his men, to reorganise, re-arm and fight amongst the Allies.
Landing in Normandy in late July 1944 with an underequipped and understrength division, Maczek spearheaded the First Canadian Army during the battle of Falaise, actually sealing the pocket for a while and supporting the full brunt of the German breakout offensive.
The Poles will immediately get to grips with their nemesis, unleashing everything they can from Phase A, including the Achilles tank destroyer and air support to 'soften the way'.
But this comes at a price, with the less high-end equipment's resilience in Phase B & C.
