    Battle Khalkhin-Gol (Type 97 Chi-Ha)

    Post by lockie on Mon Oct 31, 2016 1:07 pm

    It's time to fire up the first mission devoted to the Khalkhin-Gol action!
    At this moment we have acceptible quantity of Japan units. And the main hero tank Chi-Ha is on the way  bounce  dance  cheers2


    Here's a short history note:
    On July 2d Japanese troops using their considerable numerical superiority, took an assault.
    The lead group was 3rd Tank Regiment of the 1st Tank Corps under Lieutenant-General Yasuoka Masaomi.
    On the night of July 3th Japanese strike group crossed the Khalkhin-Gol river and seized on the west bank the Baintsagan Hill with intention to advance south to the Kawatama Bridge, creating a threat to encircle the Soviet-Mongolian troops. However, after fierce three-day fighting the advanced Japanese strike group was defeated.

    http://stasf2008.ephpbb.com/t122-japan-side

    I think the mission will be simple. User capture the Soviet trenches, then repel the enemy tank attack.
    There are some pictures:
    Pictures:







    As we can see landscape has hills, river, trees(very small number), bushes. And we badly need one important object - pontoon.


    Japanese soldiers had two head-dress:
    - cap
    - helmet

    There will be the next new units/objects for the mission:
    1. Japanese soldiers/officers, handweapon, 37mm atg, tank Chi_ha
    2. object "Pontoon" (ready 14.12.2016. Special thanks to norrin for 3D model and textures)
    3. barrage "Sticks with barbed wire" (WIP)

    And here's a first try to implement Khalkhin-Gol polygon. I've placed a new "small pine-tree" and some trenches to see how it does. The excellent landscape was provided with a weather mode "Later autumn".


    Let's see some new screenies with a tank Chi-Ha, thanks to hard work of will73!
    It is a processes of adjusting gunsight reticle to the default type of shells.



    Here's a new camo.

    We've two new objects:
    1. bridge kinda pontoon (thanks to norrin' help). It'll be destroyable.

    2. Japanese barrage consist of sticks with barbed wire (exotic type of barrage)

    First mission will be for Japan side. User has 3xChi-ha tanks and infantry platoon. Together with a main forces user must cross the river either over pontoon or ford, then attack a Soviet positions and capture it. During attack or after it user must be ready to repel the enemy counter-attack (BT-5, T-26, BA-20).


    PS
    We need a name for the Japan tank Commander. Anyone?

    Thank u, Woofie for the great video!
    I've already made a new song as a victory melody for the Soviet side!

    Так гэта памылка Smile Я меў на ўвазе БА-10. Аднак калі табе трэба для місіі БА-20, то можна падумаць, але нічога не абяцаю.

    Яшчэ вось думаю было б не плохо вось такий танчик дадаць.

    Гэта БТ-7А артылерыйскі варыянт, выпускаўся з 1936-га года. Гэта выключна для падтрымкі пяхоты. Для дуэлі з іншымі танкамі ён не падыходзіць у прынцыпе.

    PS
    There are some new screenshots.
    New object "Japanese barrage" is almost ready! gdance

    And here we're with a couple sreenies from the mission. Japanese tanks force the river crossing over the ford.


    I've made the main part of the script!  happy  There will be one JPN tank group, which will be randomly appear in one of the three start positions. Depends where the group will appear - the rout will be changed correspondingly. Group will move through the one of the crossing point:
    1. pontoon N1
    2. pontoon N2
    3. ford

    It is a draft backimage of the mission during d/l.


    PS
    Japanese infantry got another helmet. This time it is without camo net.

    It is a current helmet with a camo net.

    I'd like to announce - the new mission with Japan side is READY! flag music happy
    It took STA team approximately three years to implement it! And finally we did it! bounce
    Mission will be included into GMP4.x pack and be available only for STA3.x.  
    Here we're with some new scrennies!

    It is a first phase of the Japan attack. Troops moves to the pontoons/ford.


    My tank group is near ford to cross it. But Soviet side started the counter-attack with BT-5 and BA-10 armor.


    This screen is from an episode, when I tried to cross the river over the pontoon. It's not easy deal! U've to watch on er wingmen, if u want to keep them alive!


    My tank clear an enemy territory. 20mm AT rifle is a very effective against thin armor.


    There are my two lucky shots from the distance ~700meters!


    Victory caught my squad during the river crossing! That's a rare episode when commander personally repair the track.


    Thanks to all who was involved: frinik, norrin, will73.

    For the next mission there will be two new units:
    1. Aircraft I-15bis (SOV side)

    2. Japan pillbox

    This pillbox will be equipped with MG Type 92, covered with camo net and logs placed around the hole. The visibility of the unit will be a very small (0.1m) - to prevent easy killing, coz unit has a big size, weak armor (in fact there is no armor protection, except a couple sandbags) and unmovable. The crew consist of 4 soldiers and a couple ones will be in reserve trench.

    This time brave  Lieutenant Mitsusone Yamata Tenno will take a part in defence task - repel the enemy attack. Japan defence will be a very heavy: MG's, pillboxes, mortars, ATG's, infantry and reserve, which consist of 6 tanks Chi-Ha Type 97 (depends on balance).
    Soviet side will be presented with BT-5/7, BA-10, aircraft I-15bis and infantry.

    There will be another mission to develop the Japanese theme happy
    SF veterans remember this mission. It was a second one, which was made in 2007(!). This mission was devoted exactly to confrontation between USSR and Japan. There is a big island rounded with a water, covered with a hills, forests and strong points. The original mission was a VERY heavy and complicated. It was alone T-34 against a crazy number of the German techniks! Personally, I never finished it, but it was funny Smile
    At those times there were no Japan side and mission was kinda a big portion of imagination  Cool  Instead of Japanese vehicles there were presented a German ones with a new textures organized with a typical camo.
    Like this:

    The script itself is completely out of mind, but it is interesting presentation of SF ability to make incredible things, almost whatever author wants!
    Now we've ability to implement Japan side and I decided to re-design the mission to provide it compatibility with a current requests. Of course, the whole script was completely changed and greatly simplified. Now user has under his command:
    - 3x BT-7 and infantry platoon. He must destroy three Japanese bases. During mission execution user will be supplied with artillery fire and avia strike. Surprise there will be a new airplane I-15bis!

    The full mission time is about ~30 minutes. The area is great! And there are many spaces with a view to the sea  applause







    BUT there is one issue - mission doesn't has a history note Exclamation
    We need a plausible story Cool
    And of course, I badly need a hand of help of Monseigneur Frinik!  thumbsup
    I'd like to suggest the next idea!

    It is July 1939. Imperial Japan Army (IJA) crossed the border area near river Khalkhi-Gol and broke into Mongolia to bring a liberty to a locals from a bolsheviks yoke. HQ of the Soviet Army decided to stop aggression and protect the freedom of locals and their area integrity, which they promised to keep for Mongolian brothers.
    To provide this task the Soviet HQ secretly sent to Itsufudzima island, where located HQ of the 23rd IJA Army under command Lieutenant General Michitaro Komatsubara, a battle ship loaded with 3x BT-7 and inf. platoon under command Lieutenant Dmytro Pastushenko. This tank group was a part of the second battalion of the 11th Tank Brigade, 1st Army group under command Major Abramov K.M. The task is:
    - find three bases of the 23rd IJA Army and destroy them to prevent Japan military planes to advance in Mongolia!
    The group will be supplied with artillery and avia strikes.


    Here's a draft version of the mission report.
    report:

    Initial situation:\n
    July 6th, 1939. There is the Soviet 11th Tank Brigade of the 1st Army Group.
    On the Japan island Itsufudzima located the 14th IJA Army headed by Lieutenant General Michitaro Komatsubara, which consist of three bases.
    A saboteur tank group was created on the Second battalion of the 11th Tank Brigade. This  group will be secretly delivered by battleship to the beach of the Itsufudzima island with a purpose to destroy the enemy HQ.

    Combat order/Бойова задача:
    You are Lieutenant Dmytro Pastushenko. There are three tanks BT-7 and infantry platoon under your command.
    You have to:
    1. Seek and destroy THREE Japanese military bases!

    Callsigns/Позивні:
    HQ is OAK
    Your platoon is FALCON

    Reconnaissance/Розвідка:
    According to the recce data all bases are heavily protected with infantry and AT guns 37mm. Also on the island located a parts of 4th Tank Regiment equipped with a tanks "Type 97 Chi-Ha".

    Artillery Support/Артилерія:
    One fire mission will be launched against the enemy "Base N1" according to your request by radio.

    Air Support/Авіація:\n
    There are two avia groups consist of the I-15bis fighters. The groups are waiting for your radio-signal to execute consequently two air-strikes at the enemy "Bases N2 and N3".

    The commander of the 1st Army Group Komdiv Zhukov G.K.
    The commander of the 11th Tank Brigade Major Abramov K.M.;

    I remember this mission. It was a very difficult. I didn't finish it either. What do you think to separate the mission on three parts and add a cargo ship as a transport to deliver the tank group on Japan island?

    1. the whole one
    2. separated on three parts
