    The destroyed German Tank at the Cologne, Cathedral. It lost a sudden violent duel with new 3AD(Third Armored Division) Pershing M-26.
    Unidentified 3AD soldiers inspect a German Mark V Panther tank several days after it had been knocked out on March 6, 1945, by an M-26 commanded by Sgt. Robert Early, E Co, 32nd Armored Regiment. The Panther took three hits from the M-26's 90mm gun. At least three of the five-man German crew were confirmed killed. The M-26 was not hit.


    This is a good idea for the mission, but there are too many buildings should be made (especially Cathedral) and there is a problem to implement cobblestone. Though, it's possible.

    As I've understood, Commander of the Panther hit two Shermans from tunnel, then came to the corner waiting for the next attack. At this time Pershing rolled out from Dominikanem street. Panther managed to rotate the turret into Pershing's direction to meet him, but Commander waited, coz he wasn't sure it was American tank (there were three tanks left to cover German retreat:2xPz.V and 1xPz.IV) and it was a fatal mistake. Pershing shoot in the moving and damaged Panther through the gunmask. Then M-26 stopped and shoot second time. The video started exactly from the second shot. Four members of crew managed to bail out. Possibly, loader was killed and burnt inside the hull. Later, three members of crew captured by American troops. Two of them were heavily wounded and died. Commander Bartelborth and fourth member(his fate unknown) survived.

    On the next day American tankmen decided to make a test the Panther's frontal armor. They moved tank at ~300m and shoot 13 times. No any shells penetrated, there was only driver hatch damaged (fall off).

    I've found a model of destroyed town. So, theoretically it's possible to re-create such mission, but there is the hell a lot of work with models.

    I think it's time to reborn this story and make the mission!


    Well, this mission request a very picky map with many destroyed buildings and bridge over the river. The task is a very complicate, but I'll try to get it over Smile
    Anyway, it is just a game.

    I'm thinking to take as a base - polygon from "Fury" campaign and add:
    - river
    - bridge
    - a couple destroyed buildings

    Мабыць каб зрабіць цалкам на ўвесь палігон гарадскую забудову на сённяшні дзень-трэба мець супер кампутар і пякельнае цярпенне.Кожную апошняю перэгенерацыю чакаць па 1,5 гадзін-гэта цяжка. Цалкам згодны з камрадам Lockie,што прасцей і лепш лакалізаваць зону непасрэдна гэтага бою.

    So far, what I've compiled.
    Hope that help Smile
    It was a 106 panzerbrigade of The Panzer Division "Feldherrnhalle", which was formed in March 1945 from the Replacement and Training parts of  "Feldherrnhalle" Corps and remnants of the 13th Panzer Division. Commander Generalmajor Franz Bake.
    Insignia


    There were three tanks left:
    2x Panther
    1x Pz.IV
    1x infantry platoon

    The task was: provide a cover to German withdraw and bridge destroying.

    Panther' commander: Leutnant Wilhelm Bartelborth
    Panther' gunner: Obergefreiter Otto Konig

    First damaged building is on the way! applause

    There will be perhaps another one or two and it's enough. The base polygon will be from "Fury" campaign. I'll add a river with a bridge and expand the town.

    I think staying on the same place and shoot at stupid AI - it's boring. In this way the mission will be finished in a couple minutes - no fun anymore. So, let's first move and help Pz.IV, then another panther and after that engage the position near church to meet M-26 "Pershing"  viking

    Second damaged building is on the way!

    And here's a new building in the work!

    I think it is enough. The next stage is a polygon creating.
