    I really like the ideas of Col. Moore.

    My idea is actually selfish, as I really just am dying to use the M4A1 from D-Day.  I guess it goes back to  a novel I read in High School, called Barbara about an M4A1 tank crew.  It followed them from training to D-Day and on until they were in Germany at the endof the war.  Obviously it made a big impression on me.  I have no idea if the book is even still in print of it it could be found.... but a good read (for a kid in high school.... no idea if I would like it now.)

    So the idea:

    A platoon of M4A1 tanks need to break out of the Normandy hedgerows.  It could be part of Operation Cobra, but that would probably mean a lot of units.  Kept small, it could just be the attempt of the one platoon to breakthrough...maybe to rescue a unit that has been pinned down by heavy resistance.  The scenario would have to be very early in the Normandy campaign, unless the M4A1 had the added hedgerow cutter added.  These show some photos of them: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhino_tank -- http://www.dday-overlord.com/eng/sherman_hedgecutter_rhinoceros.htm


    The opposite scenario would be good too--Germans defending along the hedgerows trying to keep the Americans bottled up until enough reinforcements come to destroy them.

    What does anyone else think?

    OK, sounds good! At this moment we've only one polygon which looks like Normandy with many hedgerows. There is another one which is out of hedgerows, but has a bridge.
    So, let it be 6xM5A1 with infantry attacks town, which is defended by infantry and "Puma" APC.

    BTW
    Did u try mission "Dust in the wind" I/II?

    Yes, I've tried both I think ... with limited success.  Seems I do better when I have some trees to hide in.  I obviously need to work on my tactical movement when out in a desert environment.

    I think the scenario would work very well with the M5A1.  Is there any chance that we might get  an M4A1 at some point in the game?  (Sorry about calling it M3A1 originally! Embarassed ) 

    Thanks for all you work!

    The work mission name is "Normandy hedgerows" (Sherman M4A1/75), GMP1.46, N59.
    Here's briefing:
    Initial Situation:
    The 9th and 30th Infantry Divisions from Major General J. Lawton Collins' VII Corps
    with a 2nd Armored Division moves forward breaking a breach in the German lines.

    Reconnaissance Data:
    Presumably there are the next enemy forces in the Cherbourg city:\n
    - one Company of the infantry reinforced with a tank platoon Pz.IV
    - AT gun battery\n\n

    Combat Order:
    There is advanced tank platoon from the 2nd Armored Division under command Captain
    Peter Frehley tasked to cut off enemy supply from Cherbourg city.\n\n

    Your Mission:
    You are Leutenent Roy Patterson. There are three tanks "Sherman" M4A1/75 under
    your command.\n
    You have to:\n
    1. Support with fire the main forces under command Captain Frehley\n
    2. Break enemy resistance and move to the point FINAL to cut off the enemy supply\n

    Callsigns:
    - HQ is LAKE\n
    - Frehle's platoon is RABBIT\n
    - Your platoon is JERBOA\n\n

    Artillery Support: there is mortar battery will support our attack\n\n

    Air Support: not available

    Commander of the First Army Lieutenant General Omar Bradley
    Commander of the 2nd Armored Division Major General Edward Brooks

    Have to say move through the hedgerows is not an easy deal Smile
    The mission is quite simple and ordinary. Just move together with all tanks along the route and be prepared to surprise Wink

    I think it sounds great, thank you.

    It sounds like just what I was thinking.  

    The Germans were on their heels at that point right after D-Day.  They were fighting hard to keep the ground they had, but were at a disadvantage.  
    The Allies had the initiative, but didn't realize just how difficult it would be to fight in hedgerow country.  And they certainly didn't expect the hedgerows to be so difficult to get through.  

    I look forward to trying it out!

    In preparation for this mission I did a little bit of research on Shermans and started to look back through the missions in SF.  I didn't find any M4s with the 75, only 76s.  Does the M4/75 exist in the game yet?  Will it?  That would be a good alternative scenario to make it more difficult with the limited penetration of the 75.  Just  a thought.

    The hedgerows remind me of that famous German Wochenschau reel from July 1944 which shows fallschirmjaegern ambushing Shermans with panzerschreks. I wonder if the AI would be up to snuff to recreate a cat and mouse scenario using that map?

    I don't know what do u mean, but
    "fallschirmjaegern ambushing Shermans with panzerschreks"
    already presented in the mission Wink
    Mission is a very simple and short, but I'm sure user will get a good portion of adrenaline  What a Face

    Installation:
     1. Steel Sound Mod 2.2 (SSM)
     2. STA 2.0
     3. GMP1.x (must)
     4. GMP2.x (optional)
     5. GMP3.x (optional)

     8. m17_hedgerows_m4a1  4shared.com/rar/ooyLwPv8ba/m17_hedgerows_m4a1.html

    There are some screenshots.

    Let's start!

    Our infantry bravely run forward!

    First contact - APC "Puma". My shot was good enough!

    Approaching to the first point. My platoon was meet with ambushed AT guns.

    First contact with enemy tank. Poor Fritz wasn't lucky. Let's go to the final point.

    Here we're, but another German trough creep at us! My shells are too weak against his armored skin. I'm scared and can't stop him!
    We started to dance one against other and in one moment enemy exposed his stern. I got him! It was a very exiting moment in the mission, like in the movie "Fury"  Cool

    And finally it is a Victory!

    I've got a couple hits, but it didn't harm my trusty Sherman.

    Let's see the trophies. There are only two. AI didn't count to me the second Pz.IV H Sad So, there are Puma and Pz.IVH (Unfortunately, we still don't have "J" modification).

    That was a BIGGEST surprise for my crew a monster AT gun - PAK-43! I was really lucky to avoid a rendezvous with this gun  sunny

    Hey! That's a MUCH better camouflage on the Panzer IV, soft-edged (sprayed) brown and green over dark yellow. A lot better and per photos, more common than the hard-edged (brushed) green over dark yellow. Is that now standard for the late Panzer IV - it should be - or does it have to be chosen in the Mission Editor?

    Maybe my computer is possessed... Shocked

    I d/l the M17 and then the M-17a scenarios and neither one appeared after activation.

    They go in the MODS folder and then you activate them as the last thing, like you showed, right?  No idea why my computer hates me.

    Ого! Ти просто монстр! Завалив три Пантери з 75мм! Cool
    Щось тут не чисто. Напевно гармату налаштував на стрільбу чергами та доклав собі 1000-2000 снарядів? What a Face

    Looks, like u're monster! Hit three Panthers! Cool
    But I see u added 300-400 shells to the Sherman and perhaps increased gun rate of fire Very Happy

    Lockie,

    I found the M-17a scenario.  It was my failure to see it.

    But, alas, it does the same thing that Pyrgos did: it shows the scenario splash screen, counts up to 9%, then goes to a black screen, thinks for a while and then gives the exception error screen.

    Unfortunately, I can't remember what magic we used to get Pyrgos to work... maybe it would work in this case as well?

    OK, where do I check.  Even more importantly, if I don't have all the maps installed, how do I get them and install them?

    I have 2 different installs now, so I can copy files from one to the other (if I have them at all).

    Lockie,

    Yes, I have the English version.  I checked both installs and both had the sta_villers_bocage.polypack.... yet I get that same exception error with both installs.
