I'm picturing a tank coming at you over a sandy ridge with some bombers and fighters behind it.
It looks really good in my head.

Here's a good idea of what I wanted to put onto the patch.

I wanted to move away from the round tradition of many patches. I wanted to use a triangle as many ground units and even air units have triangle shapes or themes on their patches.

And before you ask/complain: I wanted something dropping a bomb on the top, so I put the Mitchell in! No other reason than I simply love the design of that plane! Thought it would look good. Wasn't sure if I should leave it all black or have the blue depicting windows.



EDIT: Oh, it'd be grey backing with blue/tan filled in with stitching.

That is a damn creative design!  Very nice.  Unfortunately, for myself, it depicts the main failure of the scenario.  Buffs bombing the crap out of the tanks preventing any kind of sustained combat action for them.  Every time I'd see that patch it will probably remind me of that.

However, it is one very sharp design.  In and of itself, I like it.  :aok

As a pilot that flew Ju88s 2 frames and escorted them 2 other frames, my main goal and intent was to represent the many strats that were bombed and/or the ships that were the main targets for most of the frames.

The bomb is falling into the explosion, not onto the tanks. The tanks are on either side and both contributing to the fire.

The idea being the explosion represents the conflict, and the bombs and tanks are adding flames to the fire.

If I wanted to show a bomber hitting tanks I'd have just put 1 tank in the middle and the bomb right over it.

I did read comments from the tankers upset at being bombed, so I understand your pain. Us bombers had our own type of pain, and the escorts still more pain. I don't think any design will please everybody, since this was quite a complicated event. SOMETHING's gonna stir up discontent, no matter what it is.

Sorry for stirring up bad memories  :aok
