You poke your head out the driver's hatch, but you can only see the back of the tank in front of you. It's got "Betsy" written on it with white paint.
"10 seco- FUCK"
"This is 5, the commander is dead and we're stuck!"
As Bernard turns around he can see a huge metal spike jutting through the deck. It's an underwater trap set to stop ships from reaching the beach proper. It's also pierced the soft belly of the tank behind the Leftenant's.
"Damn, we only have 5 tanks for this entire sector?"
"Don't let them know it! Open the doors!"
The heavy ramp is splashed into the ocean.
"Do you think it's shallow enough?"
"We are sitting ducks out here, move it! Forwards, flank speed!"
The two tanks in front of you start their engines and roar off, down the ramp.
It seems the water is almost up to the turret's base here.
Now, the commander can give bonuses or minuses to the whole rest of the crew if he rolls well.
