This Close Combat V mod covers the Battle of Surabaya. Roughly 20,000 Indonesian troops of the newly formed People's Security Army and over 100,000 militias defending the city of Surabaya against the 24,000 strong British 5th Indian Division and 6,000 men of 49th Brigade, 23rd Indian Division with tanks, naval, artillery and air support. The mod is an exhaustive remake of stock CC5. You will see all new graphics, hear new sounds, and experience a very different atmosphere. British Far East troops have been researched for historical accuracy, including British, Indian and Gurkha teams never before seen in the game. The Indonesian army and militia order of battle are comprised of almost entirely new units for CC5, and some of the teams are quite outlandish. You will see lot of weapons and equipment rarely seen in CC5, including exotic traditional weapons. We hope CC players will have a lot of fun playing a mod set in one of the forgotten exotic theaters at the tail end of WW2.
