CMFB Campaign: Fields of Tears Fields of Tears is a interactive CMFB Campaign that picks up where my CMBN Campaign: In the Fields Where the Poppies Grow leaves off and follows the actions of Captain Charles Stevens and A Company, 31st Tank Battalion, 7th Armored Division, around St. Vith, Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge. It requires the latest version of CMFB and all immersion mods needed are in the download. They are tagged to this campaign only. It is playable from the Blue Side only. The campaign is a story driven campaign like "Poppies" where you must keep Stevens and other important personnel alive and still complete the mission objectives to advance in the campaign. The storyline is in the Designer Notes for each mission. The campaign begins with a mission in Germany and then continues after the Germans launch their Ardennes offensive Unternehmen Wacht am Rhein. Elements of the 7th Armored Division, the 31st Tank Battalion, including Captain Stevens and A Company are sent to the St. Vith area where they are to make contact and destroy the enemy forces advancing on the town. The campaign is based loosely on historical facts. Core Units: A Co HQ: Capt. C. Stevens (Snake Eye) (CO) 1st Lt. P. Jarrett (Hammer) 2nd Lt. R. Vanicor (Dancer) 1st Platoon: WO C.

Counterattack at Hunnigen (Allied Attack) 6. The II SS Panzer Corps Strikes (Axis Attack) Maps: The first battle, Antons Bridge, is an original map by me. The other maps in the campaign are from the excellent master maps that came with the game. I reworked them extensively to achieve the immersion I was after for the campaign. Mods: (All credit goes to the authors of the mods) US and German Snowy Uniforms and Gear by Ithikial. King Tiger Mod by PzPJ American Sherman Pack and Gear by Aris Snowy US Vehicles by Umlaut Mords US Portraits by Mord (modified by me with the unit insignias used in the campaign.) Various winter fortifications from the Winter Mod by the Winter Mod Team Assorted damaged vehicle textures by me Special Note: I used Worghern Blitzkrieg Environment : CMFB 2.0 while designing the campaign which is not included in the download. I highly recommend adding this as the campaign was designed and modified using these textures as well as the Winter Mod for CMFB which will work seamlessly with Worgherns mod.. While it can be played without these I highly recommend using them as the tags in the campaign will pick them up. Here is the link to download Worghern Blitzkrieg Environment : CMFB. http://cmmodsiii.greenasjade.net/?p=3984 Here is the link to download Kohlenklau’s Winter Mod for Final Blitzkrieg. http://cmmodsiii.greenasjade.net/?p=3991& Also Umlauts Snowy German Vehicle mods are not included but highly recommended. Once again to follow the storyline read the Designers Notes. I hope it proves to be enjoyable.
