    Thank u for the quotes! I'll put them in the mission with Cromwhell vs Tiger  happy

    And here we're with some screens from the mission "A lucky case" (Cromwell Mk.IV)
    I've decided to remove one Cromvel from the user's squad. Now we've only two. It's quite enough to execute the mission.
    First, u've to find the enemy spotters and eliminate them. Be warned, one spotter has a panzerfaust. Also watch on the wingman. My turned over when bumped into the hedge.
    When u finish them a message pop-up.


    Second, join to the main battle group and attack the enemy positions. I recommend to play on the balance "4", coz at this balance the aviation is available. At the balance "5", no aviation at all.

    Try to keep at the rear of the attacking forces and use bushes to hide the tank.
    A couple words what we've at the balance "5".
    GBR
    - 6x Cromwell Mk.IV
    - 2x Firefly
    - 2x infantry platoon
    - 2x Thunderbolt (upto 4 balance)

    GER
    - 6x Pz.IV/H
    - 1x Jagdpanzer IV
    - 2x pillbox with MG-34
    - 3x ATG pak-40
    - 1x infantry platoon armed with a panzerchreck

    I'd like to announce the new mission with a working name "Saturday Night Fever"!



    It is Mongolia, Khalkhin-Gol river, 1st July 1939, Saturday. The advanced squad of the IJA, 4th Tank Regiment, forced river and occupied a very important bridgehead near the Baintsagan Hill for the further offensive.


    The Soviet armour strike group (6x armored cars BA-10 and 2x infantry platoons) from the 11th Tank Brigade  has a task to overthrow the advanced enemy forces and capture two bridges over river Khalkhin-Gol.
    3D model of BA-10 was greatly redesigned and now has a simple cockpit. The mission has a minor extent of difficulty, but needs a very precise shooting, coz a map has a many empty spaces.


    It's interesting that base of the Soviet armored car was an American vehicle Ford. This vehicle was designed for the peaceful purpose as a transport unit, but Soviet redesigned it in the weapon BA-20 and BA-10.

    Mission "Saturday Night Fever" is ready!
    First we've to suppress the outpost, then capture two bridges. Second task is more difficult, coz there are Japan tanks and it is a very dangerous attack them in front.

    Here we're with a new mission GMP4.1, N39 "Task Force Abrams"!


    Great thanks to Jonf for his common mission idea/scenario/proofreading and excellent video recorded by our "Gold camera" Geoweb35! The mission based on the real action had place in DEC 1944.
    Have a nice watch!

    PS
    As my point, would be nice to enable shadow in the mission, coz now all tanks/trees are without shadows. It'll hit a bit the common FPS, but not too much, coz the average one is ~40fps.

    There are some screenies from the new polygon by Deviator "Voiskovitsy". Actions had place in the summer 1941 and winter 1944. It is railroad station near village Voiskovitsa(Finish name), Leningrad area, USSR. There are four missions for RKKA(GAZ-M1, BT-5, T-34/76) and two for Wehrmacht(SdKfz. 251/10, Pz.VI Tiger).




    The feature of the polygon is a new building "railroad station", which was made specially to Deviator's request.
    I hope all missions will be presented for the STA3.2 during the next month.

    I've tweaked a bit the mission "TF Abrams". Now allies/enemy AI is more smarter, more radio-phrases added and user must go the the final destination. There is a Panther at the balance "6".
    My trophy was quite great(2xPzIV, 1xPAK-43/1) and I supposed to see the motto: Mission accomplished successful, but at this time the enemy panzerschrek killed my tank near the final stage Sad viking I'm playing without highlighted target and it's a VERY difficult to find the enemy.






    BTW
    The user's tank appears randomly. There could be two variants: early and late 1944. In first variant the gun is weaker.

    The third mission "Seppelevo 1941" is on the way! This time user has under his control a heavy APC Sd.Kfz 250/10. The task is support the infantry with a fire and occupy two villages Seppelevo-Ilkino. This action had a real place in August 1941 where 1st Panzer Division moved to Leningrad area and bumped into Kolobanov's tank KV-1. He wrote as his personal victory 28 GER tanks.  Though, GER Pz.Div. didn't confirm this battle in any documents.

    We've a good news! Deviator has created a new mission devoted to the new German "tank" Pz.I ausf.A Action had place on September 1941, Leningrad area when German rear units(1st Panzer Division) were attacked by the NKVD troops.

    Here's a draft copy of the history note:
    On September 2d 1941, the personnel of the 1st Infantry Division of the NKVD troops marched into the battles to liquidate the enemy's breakthrough in the area of Mga railroad station, which was admitted because of the enemy rush attack.
    The 2nd battalion of the 2nd Regiment, led by the battalion commissar A. Pyankov, knocked out the enemy from the station's territory, captured about 150 enemy vehicles and only under the counter-attack of the two German Regiments reinforced with a tanks Pz.I, was forced to withdraw. Division had been lost about 80 percent of the personnel.

    NKVD (Narodnyi Komissariat Vnutrennikh Del)) The People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs was the leading Soviet secret police organization from 1934 to 1946. It is known for its role in political repression and for carrying out the Great Purge under Joseph Stalin.
    In the mission the new NKVD soldier will be equipped with original cap.



    briefing:

    Initial situation:
    It is 2nd September 1941, Leningrad area, USSR. The rear units of the 1st Panzer Division is attacked
    by the Soviet NKVD Infantry Division in the area of Mga railroad station.

    The new mission N46 "Ready to fire" has been done!

    It is based on the activity of the January 24th 1944 when the blockade of Leningrad was broken. User has under his command 3x T-34 reinforced with T-26 and T-60. He has to fight against numerical enemy infantry and ATG's including 88mm FLAK 36. There was an unique case when Soviet tanks T-26 from the 220th tank brigade had to fight against Tigers! No need to say the Soviet had a terrible losses.
    http://tankarchives.blogspot.com/2017/03/cheating-at-statistics-17-leaving.html
    At 14:00, two Tiger tanks and one Ferdinand SPG appeared on the road between Voyskovitsy and Ilkino. They started shooting up our light tanks at point blank range from the southwest outskirts of Ilkino. The AA gun batteries partially resumed activity and began firing at the tanks again.
    From the report of the 220th Tank Brigade, 24th January 1944.

    Oh this guy Peter Samsonov! He seems to be a retired KGB officer making sure everybody knows the feats of arms of the Red Army and his beloved communist party.

    Re exaggerate claims of losses the German tank crews are not the only ones who might have exaggerated ,on purpose or not , the losses they inflicted on the Soviets. After the battle of Kursk for example the Soviets officially boasted of having destroyed 500 tigers when only 146 were deployed during the battle or the Allied air crews who claimed more German tanks destroyed in Normandy in air attacks in June -July 1944 than the Germans had deployed on the entire front. In battle, fishing expeditions and seducing women all men tend to lie or exaggerate their successes. Wink

    I've heard that the most famous was 13th Heavy Company of Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler under command of Hauptsturmführer SS Heinz Kling.
    http://www.panzerace.net/the-tiger-i/order-of-battle/13th-hv-company.html

    The third platoon was under command Untersturmführer SS Michael Wittmann.
    I think would be a good idea to re-design the current Campaign "The Nazi Power" from Grossdeutchland into Leibstandarte and finish it in Normandy Cool
    But of course, I wont do that, coz it takes too much efforts and would be as more fake as it is Smile Though a personal Campaign (consist of five missions) devoted to Michael Witmann looks quite reasonable.


    PS
    I've a scan of this document. What is this?

    Lightning62, frinik thanks for explanations! I've found three badges:
    1. Black (3rd class, representing Iron), for those wounded once or twice by hostile action (including air raids).
    2. Silver (2nd class) for being wounded three or four times.
    3. Gold (1st class, which could be awarded posthumously) for five or more times wounded.
