    Just recently finished it H2H and had a great time. I had the Americans and my opponent tried to stand back at long range and use his superior guns and optics. Didn't work out all that well for him. He eventually took the objectives, but the cost was high. Very high.

    Can't really suggest any tweaks. As you say; it's a lot of fun if you like massive tank battles and lots of blowed-up armor. smile.gif

    The map gives the attacker a lot of different options. I'd call the replayability factor pretty good.

    Make some more CMAK operations Iron Duke. "Counterattack at Sarrebourg" is still one of my all-time favorites!

    <S>

    Thanks for the test and the vote of confidence.

    I have several CMAK operations at the depot, and perhaps I'll make a few more as per your request. smile.gif

  2. I need some feed back from H2H play on "A Hostile Debouchment" as it is a very large tank battle and I'm sure needs some tweaks.

    I just updated the scenario to version 1.4 so if you do test it, please make sure you have this version.

    The scenario can be found here.

    C'mon you Head to Head guys out there...if you like battles with over 100 tanks and enough space to fight with them...then this is for you and an opponent!

    "A brief, howling sandstorm swept across the Tunisian plain early Sunday morning, February 14...Soldiers in black tunics tramped down highway 13 carrying lanterns to guide more than a hundred tanks-a dozen Tigers among them...through the western mouth of Faid Pass.

    As dawn spread behind him, the commander of Operation FRUHLINGSWIND climbed a rocky parapet above the squalid hamlet of Faid, General Heinz Ziegler liked what he saw: nothing. The Americans did not appear aroused, nor even alert. At precisely 6:30 A.M. the drivers shifted into gear and panzers spilled from the Eastern Dorsal onto the plain...They came down like the wolf on the fold..." --An Army at Dawn

    I'll try it. Thanks for the oppurtunity. How many other scenarios have you made?? Is it playable against the AI.

    Cool, thanks for trying it out. Please let me know what you think would make it better, or needs tweaking.

    I've made maybe 20 - 25 battles and operations. Go to The Proving Grounds and search under the scenarios section for more.

    This particular scenario is built specifically so that the Ai attacks you. But I feel it will be a good 2 player scenario also.

  5. "A Sword in Algiers"

    "Of the nine major landing sites chosen for TORCH in Algeria and Morocco, a beach that American planners had considered among the easiest was proving the most difficult. Eighty miles north of Casablanca, the seaside resort of Mehdia had confounded Brigadier General Lucian Truscott's best efforts to subdue it. Landed badly but without serious opposition, Truscott's 9,000 troops were supposed to capture the modern airfield at Post Lyautey, a few miles up the serpentine Sebou River. Once the field had fallen, aircraft from Gibraltar, and seventy-seven Army P-40's now parked on the escort carrier CHENAGO, would give Patton formidable airpower in Morocco - with bombs and fuel provided by the CONTESSA..." -- An Army at Dawn

    I have attempted to setup the battle so that the player defends and is attacked by the Americans. I recommend you set the computer experience to +2 or +3 as attack is not the Ai's greatest strength but with a few careful placements, it can be fun.

    Also note that the historical French defenders will be played by the Italians.

    Please try it out and as always, all comments welcome and needed!

    And for those who have not tried it - it is great fun against the AI at the recommended +3. I played it straight through I was enjoying it so much : )

    Haha...I know! I saw that you downloaded it, played it, and reviewed it all in the same day. You must have liked it. :D
  7. Tebourba was held by Lieutenant Colonel James Lee with nearly 700 Hampshires and 500 East Surry's. While American tanks were being roughly handled north of town on December 2, British infantrymen fought for their lives 2,000 yards west of Djedeida.

    Fischer deployed the Wehrmacht's latest secret weapon, sent by Hitler with a guarantee that it would be "decisive" in the Tunisian campaign. The first Tiger to arrive at Bizerte seized up on the dock; the second broke down on the road west..."--An Army at Dawn

    ...a few others rumbled into Djedeida just in time to slam into British lines at midmorning on December 2nd.

    Just posted up this battle at the Proving Grounds.

    I've setup the battle so the Ai attacks you and makes it a bit fun.

    I've playtested it too much as I no longer know if it's hard or not?

    I'd appreciate any help you could provide.
