New WF Scenario
Evening, gentleman!

I've been working on and off on a new Night scenario for the last few months, and finally put the finishing touches on the beta version. Files are below. Would love to get feedback from those helping me test the scenario.

** Find A Way Through
Complexity: 5
Date: 12 May. 1940
Night Scenario

Scenario Description

[Thisnes, 57 kms SE of Brussels, Belgium]:[H2H][HISB][GD]: The German plan to defeat the western Allies in May 1940 staked all on a potentially risky thrust of concentrated armored divisions slicing through the Ardennes Forest, across the Meuse River at Sedan, France and from there to the English Channel to cut the Allied armies in two. However, the success of this plan was predicated on the Germans being able to convince the British and French to commit to sending their best forces into Belgium to stop what was essentially a feint. The German high command felt that a feint in Belgium that did not include any of their vaunted panzer divisions would arouse Allied suspicions, thus they assigned General Erich Hoepner's XVI Armee Korps (mot.), which included the veteran 3rd and 4th Panzer Divisions, the mission of "waving the red cape". In the morning and early afternoon of May 12th, 1940, armored elements of 4th Panzer Division clashed with motorized infantry and tank units belonging to the French 3rd Light Mechanized Division's 5th Light Mechanized Brigade (5e BLM) near the towns of Hannut and Crehan. This fighting, which lasted several hours, included the first real tank vs tank combat of the war. The green French cavalrymen fought bravely, but lost 11 of the 21 tanks with which they began the action, and were eventually forced to retreat west to the village of Thisnes. Late in the afternoon of May 12th, General Hoepner, believing that the Allied resistance in front of his corps was weak and in the process of collapsing, ordered 4th Panzer Division to conduct a night probing attack. The objective of this attack was to find a way through Allied defenses and to reach and breach the anti-tank barrier at Perwez before retreating Allied forces could take up positions behind it. 4th Panzer's commander formed a mobile combined arms task force from combat-ready elements of 4th Panzer Division, and assigned the task to Panzer Regiment 35's aggressive commander, Oberstleutnant Heinrich Eberbach. However, green as it was, the 5e BLM was most definitely not in retreat and had no intention of simply stepping aside for the Germans. As the sounds of Eberbach's advancing panzers floated towards them through the evening air, the tankers and dragoons of 5e BLM checked their weapons, said their final prayers and prepared to give battle . . .

RE: New WF Scenario
Hello, started playing it, very nice scenario, unfortunately, through no fault of your doing, many of the French vehicles have a weapon, but NO fire cost, consequently, once they start firing, they will not stop!!! The S20TL PC is one of them, had to use task manager to shut down the scenario. This is my fault, I had added a lot of these French vehicles, and neglected to assign a firing cost, noticed that probably all of the unarmored PC's and others have this issue!!! I'm very sorry, will try to rectify this issue, or have Jason address it, but this is indeed my fault. Unfortunately am very busy right now with real life, so please bear with me.

Warhorse,

Thanks for the info. Can you be specific which vehicles in the scenario have this issue? I will re-design the OOB to take them out.

Gents,

Bringing this back up the top.

Anyone feel like testing this one with me? I've got a turn as Axis already waiting.

Would prefer a reasonably experienced opponent.
