Solo and COOP Skirmish mission with a lot of new things: - New détailled and historical map of Tessel, a real village near Caen/Normandie in France (with new ground textures) - A new script with auto reload points near each flags - News ambiance sounds (pigs, birds, insects, flags..) - Dozen of new voices for german and UK Units! - New bushes camo and skins for most all German tanks I've spend a lot of time on it and i hope you will enjoy that great and hard mission! Cheers, Bassmaniac

I'm proud to present you my last skirmish mission: Tessel.
It's a little village situated at 20kms west of Caen (near Rauray and Brettevillette) were there were intensives fights in June 1944.

This mission also include a lot of new thnig for Men of War Assault Squad:
- new skirmish script with new auto amo relaod points for your units (crates full of amo, near each flag) so finish to micro manage your soldiers for amo and bandages in the battlefield!
-New skins and new German Elits like this Fallschirmjager:

12 SS Hitler jungen (notice that there is also new colored labels for each type of unit to easy find them during battle!):

2 SS div. "Das Reich" near a German Para:

New skins for Medic, tank crews and Waffen SS (there is also for sniper, radio etc.;):

The map is very near of the real relief of Tessel but i've changed some houses to increase the gameplay.:

You will discover some news ambiant sounds, that give the map a more immersive ambiance for this little farmland.

It's a heavy file to dowlnoad for a mission, but i've include all my skins, and specially my news camos with bushes for all the German's tanks of this mission... he he

The context of this historical mission:
Operation Epsom: Since the liberation of Caen was taking serious delay, General Montgomery decides to launch the assault, and on June 23 he plans to use the forces commanded by General Richard O'Connor, three army corps: 60,000 men, 600 tanks and 700 guns.

This operation is codenamed Epsom. But on June 23, a new storm is raging in the Channel and reinforcements of food, fuel and materials are blocked on board ships or in England.

And if the allies are no longer able to move forward, the Germans are benefiting from this situation on the front line: the 12nd SS Panzer division of the 21st Panzer and the Panzer Lehr division move strategically around Caen .
In total, this number represents 228 tanks, 150 88mm cannons and different other guns. On Sunday June 25, 1944, an armored division and two independent armored brigades belonging to the 8th Anglo-Canadian corps, composed of nearly 60,000 men and 600 tanks, attack at the west of Caen.

The 49th British Infantry division West Riding attacks Fontenay-le-Pesnel, Tessel, Rauray and Brettevillette but in the surroundings, the Panzer Lehr defends the area, like the Rauray village, located southwest of Tilly, which is strongly defended by the 1st SS Armored Corps and the 12e Panzerdivision SS Hitlerjugend and heavy fighting begins for the control of the town... It was really a nightmare for the allies

Here is one of my bushes camos for the Tigers:

new map textures:

I hope you will enjoy to play this mission.
Don't forget to give me ytour feed back: it will be include (soon) in a complete German Skirmish Campaign of 5 new historical missions!

Hello all!

Thank's for your good comments!

I never remarked this problem before (i play on a 22' screen in 1680x1050 with an old 8600GTS 512) and your the first to talk me about such problem: Can you tell me what resolution you use to play? I will check what could be wrong with menus. Have you similar problems also with original skirmish missions?

Wow that is some beef pc you got there, I'm stuck with a laptop and play at best in 1280 x 768 screen, and also got the smae problem by the way, why to panzer reinforcement is so slow? I sometimes waited for like 5 minutes just to get one operational vehicle to the battlefield, I tried to reserve some vehicles for late stage fighting, but it seems I always have to put them into combat and eventually running low on ammo and got sucker punched by AT guns how do you change the reinforcement timer? :(

This mission run for more than 700 players now, without this type of error that i've never seen before (esdlreader.cpp 326).
Maybe you have not installed the last version of the game? (try to patch it, last version is Patch 2.00.11 / 01.02.2012) or maybe your computer is too low (this mission have a lot of new things (skins, sounds etc..) and it can stress old computers. (Another possibility is that you have not the last directX and graphic drivers installed).

I had similar problems with other mods. It is a game bug. Remove the game and try again.

Yes,it not a easy mission, but it's what we like!
You are right :the Churchills are too strongs in MowAS. It's unbelieveable: One time, i used more than 30x 88 AT Shell at medium distance on the side and it was still alive! I think the only way to destruct them is to use AT grenades (sometime more than 3) or use radio operator or dynamite..
Thank's for your comments!

I finished this map and it was really, really enjoyable! One thing is thet the end of the map doesn't seem like it should. I mean in most maps this is some kind of fortified position with hills, some buildings. Here I didn't feel like I'm conquering some objective. After clearing the village (which was real pain in the ***) map got very easy.

Heavy artillery in the end needs some more attention - it turned around all the time in a strange way and it was placed on very ugly textures in a simple terrain. It looked a bit like unfinished. I think it should be reworked so that it would look more realistic.

You are right: i've changed it like that (on a field without trees and bushes) at the last minute because it was too laggy (at the end, there is a lot of units on the map), so it look a little bit unfinished (at least, not so realistic of the rest of the map) I will reworked it when i will have time.
