    New Missions "Magnum Force"/"Final Cut" (Pz.IV H)

    Post by frinik on Wed Feb 04, 2015 4:00 pm

    Hello Steel Fury Fans,

    Lockie our eternally dynamic game creator, innovator and Ukrainian patriot to boot has a new mission in the offing. For Lockie Steel Fury is like a bicycle; if it doesn't move it falls...

    So he has decided to create a sequel to "Break on Through" with a title loosely based on a Clint Eastwood flick: "Magnum Force". This mission will this time be played on the German side and will feature a tank which has been neglected despite having been the Wehrmacht workhorse in the last 2 years of the war.The Panzer IV Ausf. H. This tank could hold it's own with the T34s and Shermans up until the end thanks to its high velocity 75mm Kwk 40 L48 capable of smashing through a respectable 118 mm of armour at 1000 metres ( Pz gr 39/40).


    The new, lovely house which was unveiled yesterday is sure to feature prominently in the new mission.



    Here's the scenario :

    April 1945, Western Germany. The Allied forces in the west are closing in on the last bastions of German organized resistance. The US 9th Armored is facing remnants of the SS Division "Wiking" whose men are determined to keep their Faith to the Fuehrer. Obersturmfuhrer Franz Schreiber has made it clear to the men that the Waffen SS is the backbone of the Vaterland and cannot be broken otherwise the Reich and the German people are doomed to perish. The men of 5th SS Division "Wiking" are backed by a three Panzer Ausf. IVH Together, against overwhelming odds, and despite shortages of fuel, ammunition and Allied control of the air they hope to stop the American advance squad to protect the forward area near the farm called "Klimt-Ostwald". The decisive battle will be fought at Esserden which Hauptsturmfuehrer Hansen is in charge of defending until the last man.He expects his Panzers IVs to hold their own against any tank the Americans can field. He is unaware that the Americans have now a worthy opponent to the German Panzers in the form of the "Pershing" M-26 armed with a hard-hitting 90mm gun. On the morning of 7th April, the panzers' engines roar to life and  men of the SS Panzer Division "Wiking" huddle behind their Krup-steel horses and move forward to the village of "Klimt-Ostwald", where the enemy is lying in wait...

    Here's the Initial Mission Situation Briefing:
    An American Scout group detached from the 9th Armored Division managed to capture the "Klimt-Ostwald" farm which is well located to provide  further attack to Esserden.
    According to intercepted radio messages from the enemy, they have sent armoured and infantry reinforcements to help the Scout unit to fight off any possible counter-attack.
    Sturmbannfuhrer Max Hansen, in charge of the defence of Esserden, has ordered a Kampfgruppe from the 5th SS panzer Division "Wiking" to head towards " the Klimt-Ostwald" farm and recapture it at any cost.

    Combat order:
    Kampfgruppe comprised of three tanks Pz.IV H and infantry platoon, enforced with scout squad of Gebirgsjager, attack the farm
    "Klimt-Ostwald" and capture it. Then the whole group take up the defence position and prepare to destroy an approaching
    enemy tank group.
    The Commander of the town defence forces is Sturmbannfuhrer Max Hansen.

    Your Task:
    You're Obersturmfuhrer Franz Schreiber. There are three tanks Pz.IV H and infantry platoon under your command. Your task is:
    Attack and capture farm "Klimt-Ostwald", then be prepared to intercept and destroy American tank group, which moves to the
    farm direction.

    Balance:
    Germany
    1. PzIV H + infantry platoon
    2. 1x squad Gebirgsjager
    3. 1x squad Panzershreck

    USA:
    1. 1x M4A2 Sherman (depends on balance)
    2. 2x Infantry platoon
    3. 2x APC M3
    additional
    4. 3x M4A2+infantry
    3. 3x M-26 (plus additional tanks at the balance "7")

    Here's a picture:

    Brace yourselves for another slugger!  Smile

    And there are some additional material.

    A very Big THANK YOU to Lockie and co for the new mission. Love the Wiking Panzers and SS infantry and did I really
    see two SS snipers with vegetation around their helmets fighting it out with US infantry at the farm? I think I did. If so
    thanks again and goes to show what surprises there are when you take time to look. Long Live Ukraine !!

    Here's part 2 already produce by our prolific mission maker ;

    \tInitial situation:\n

    August 1944, France, the little village "Saint-Loc-sur-Fri" near Alencon. After weeks of bitter
    fighting, the American forces have finally broken through the German defence line and moved deep into French territory. The 90th Infantry Division is moving on the road leading to Alencon, France. Its Commander is Brigadier General S. MacLain. But the Germans have not yet given up and have sent a platoon of "Green Devils" from 9th Fallschirmjager Division with the aim of cutting off American supply lines by taking the sleepy village of "Saint-Loc-sur-Fri". Once taken the village will be turned into a bridgehead, which the Germans intend to use for future counterattacks against the Allies. General MacLain has given the order that a vehicle scout squad consisting of 3 M8 APCs under the command of Lieutenant Harry "Dirty" Callahan, immediately attack the village, capture it and hold on to it until the spearheads of the 2nd Armored Division arrive and take over.\n\n

    tCombat order:\n

    General MacLain said: Listen Harry"! We"got a very dangerous situation. A group of German saboteurs captured our scout convoy
    in the village of "Saint-Loc-sur-Fri" and temporarily cut off our supplies and our lines of communications with some advanced units of the 90th Infantry Division.
    We need to immediately wrestle the village from the Krauts and prevent them from concentrating their troops there. Unfortunately the damned 2nd
    Armored Division is late once more and all I got are three lousy M8s from the Scouts squad. Only a brave nuts like you can pull it off Harry!
    I'll give you Chico Gonzalez as second in command.

    Lieutenant Callahan: Geez Sir, you're laying it on me! Why Gonzalez?He is green! I ain't got no time to pamper a newbie. Why don't you do this boy
    a favor ... if I need a partner, I'll get myself someone who knows what the hell he's doin'.

    General MacLain: Harry you may really live up to your dirty bastard reputation but last I heard I am still you commanding officer Godammit! Gonzalez is your second in command no argument !And Harry? Don't piss me off!

    \tYour Task:\n

    You are Lieutenant "Dirty" Harry. There are three M8 APCs under your command. You have to:
    1. surreptitiously infiltrate the village of Saint-Loc-sur-Fri , make a sneak attack and take it back from the Germans..
    2. Hold the village until reinforcements arrive.

    Just be patient ! This mission is coming soon to a computer screen near you!
