    Mission Gzhatsk 1941 (trophy T-34/76(Com. cupola)

    The new trophy T-34 (N183) is coming Cool
    This is excellent work by will73!

    I think the new tank needs to be painted in grey color. And as my point it will be more vulnerable, because of the "Commander cupola".

    Need new scenario for this tank. Suppose, June 1941 will be fine period. Any ideas?

    June 1941 is unrealistic .The Germans did not capture great quantities of T34 tanks before late July -August and then had to retrofit them before they started using them.I would say late autumn 1941 would be more realistic.

    Sounds good!
    What abt. tank battle between 2nd SS Panzer Division Das Reich under command Oberstgruppenführer Paul Hausser and 18th Tank Brigade under command Colonel A.S. Druzhinin.
    The battle was part of the Operation Typhoon where Division Das Reich was a spearhead of German advancing to capture the Soviet capital. Tank battle had place 9 October 1941 on the highway Minskoye near Gzhatsk town.
    In fact there were two Soviet Tank brigade 18th and 19th (Commander S.A. Kalihovic).
    Soviet had the next tanks: T-34, BT-5/7, KV-1.
    Let's say Das Reich had: T-34(Com. cupola), Pz.III/G
    The draft mission name: Gzhatsk 1941





    History note:
    Operation Typhoon, the attack on Moscow, opened on 30 September in autumn 1941 with Guderian's forces beginning their advance through Gluchov towards Orel town. SS-Division 'Reich' was a part of the spearhead advancing, together with three Panzer divisions, a motorized division and the 'Grossdeutschland' Regiment. On 6 October the division was entrusted with the task of cutting the Smolensk-Moscow road between Gzhatsk and Vyasma, completing an encirclement around the latter town. Despite fierce opposition, including continual strafing by Soviet forces, this phase of the offensive was satisfactorily completed with the capture of the road and rail bridges at Yegorye Kuleshi on the first evening, Kamyonka on the second and Nikolskoya on the
    third, leaving the division firmly astride the main highway to Moscow. But at this time the weather had broken and when the division moved off at dawn on 9 October it was in the teeth of a howling blizzard.

    After a while the mission creatin' is continue on.
    So, now thanks to hard work of will73, I've two new models of German tanks:
    1. Trophy with Com. turret

    I've tried to change an olive color on the grey one. Suppose still needs some adjustments. Comrade, kapulA where are u?  bounce
    2. Pz.III/G

    I think, mission will be placed in the tab "Single mission" and will be available for STA3.x only. (All new Deviator's missions I want to place there also).

    BTW
    I'm really impressed with a new model Shocked  U may see the engine via the shutter!
