Title: Playtest: Konrad III january 1945 509th attacks
Post by: stoffel on 24 August 2009, 12:50:10
During operation Konrad 509th bn had to take the bvridges across the sarvic river in Hungary.
This was one of the first encounters where an entire bn heavy tanks was succesfully engaging the enemy and doing their job well.
Unfortunately after penetrating the soviet lines, the Russians blew up the bridges.
Nonetheless the battle itself was succesfull for the bn.

Crush the enemy and take the bridges!

And a small movie to get the feeling, thanks to Steve Bohlin.

Yes, but it should be playable in two player as well.
And, yes I would like to have feedback :)

Already have a few comments to make/questions to ask:

- briefing would have been nice (although I presume the current version id for testing, so no real need for that)
- terrain seems a bit too flat and even, in my opinion, but I don't have a map so it might be accurate
- why SS troops? sPzAbt509 was regular Heer, not SS

That's it for now, still in the process of setting up. ;)

LOl,

Yes, briefing comes later.
The terrain there was hilly , I have used the maps from jentz and some other sources and Google.
The map is not accurate but a representation from what I think it could have been.
SS?
Oops I must have used the wrong armor, the accompanying infantry was from 3rd SS :)

As I suspected.

Could have more hills, but the general layout looks good. Only the wet ground will pose a dire problem for the german tanks...

SS?

Yup, all the armor crews are SS as well. But that's only a minor point, of course.

Not enough though, the Germans lost 2/3 rd of the tanks due to mech/mobilization problems and mines :)
There were 18 left after a few days :)
In testing I lost 6 to bogging.

My first HSG scenario, posted at WaT.

Thanks to the playtesters.
Much thanks to Steve Bohlin for his incredible help with the Soviet OOB!!

If you ever dreamed of commanding a batallion of King Tigers, here is your chance!
Play axis against AI, or two player (better player take russians)

Enjoy.

Henk,
  It looks pretty impressive.  I am right in the middle of some major real life action, so I might not be able to play it for a while yet.  I was able to download and check out the map and equipment.  It has been a while since I've seen so many K√∂nigstiger lined up and ready to hunt in a scenario.

  A quick question...are the flags important for victory conditions for the Germans or are the bridges the major charge?  I know that sometimes the flags are there for directing the AI, but I was wondering if the German player in this battle should ignore the flags and concentrate on the bridges, since that would be the major objective.

  It looks like a really nice set-piece battle.  I like the map, and haven't really looked closely at it yet.

Hi Heinrich, the bridges are off course the end objective ;)
The flags are there so the AI will not draw away troops from their defensive posititons when playing the AI.
Off course, as allways I have added a few nice surprises in this scenario :)
