This entry is explain the grand-tactical situation of the North German Plain scenario and to delineate the scope of what will be an Steel Beasts ProPE scenario. Keep in mind that this is a work in progress and that nothing is set on stone yet. Your feedback is always appreciated.
|The North German Plain scenario.|
The North German Plain scenario starts with a Soviet air assault on Hameln which is defended by two mechanized companies of the 1 PzG. Bde. NATO attempts to relief the troops in Hameln. So do the Soviets.
I want to focus the Steel Beasts scenario in the fight between two companies of the 2 Pz. Bde. and the massive Soviet forces attempting to linkup with the airborne troops in Hameln.
From left to right in the above screenshot:
- 20 Armoured Brigade will not be featured, although Steel Beasts ProPE has the capability to do so
- Forces in contact will be featured but placed under complete control of the computer (i.e. player can't affect what they do to each other)
- 2 Pz. Bde. will be featured almost fully. Computer will control all units but one Leopard 2 company and one Marder IFV company that will be under player control
- The 9 Tank Guards Division will be deployed by Koen. That's 75 T-72 tanks and BTR60s in battalion strength.
The objective of the Soviets will be to linkup with the airborne troops in Hameln at a final strength no less than 40 tanks. The objective for NATO will be to avoid such a thing from happening.
I will be sending Koen the scenario draft shown above and he will work on it. He is on vacation now and there will be a short delay.
