Report article RSS Feed Skirmish Smolensk map - test version

First changed mission, ready for tests. Russian Smolensk Skirmish map. Full list of changes in description.

Posted by Windmaker on Feb 20th, 2012

It's first mission changed in new style I would like to provide to all missions in game. Smolensk skirmish was very hard on heroic level of difficulty and in some situations even it was a defence skirmish when your only way to survive was to defend your base. Also there were a lot of unrealistic units added to this mission which took place in 1943. The aim was to make this mission a little bit easier on heroic and more realistic.

Enemy reinforcements Smolensk skirmish New Smolensk Skirmish reinforcements

All changes in current version:

  • +11 soldiers at start - one PTRS, one mg, one medic and mp's and mosins for rest
  • +2 ZiS-3 without crews (depending on tests, I will probably remove one)
  • mg changed to Maxim +2 soldiers
  • ZiS-3 changed to ZiS-2 + 2 soldiers
  • Sniper changed to recon squad - 1 sniper, and 2 sturmoviks
  • PTRS infantry with more soldiers - 2 PTRS and 4 support soldiers
  • Ammo Truck with additional miners truck (I'm working to make it as separate units)
  • completely reworked tanks reinforcements - T-70 instead of BA-11, KV-85 instead of T-34/85, Sherman M4A3 instead of T-60, SU-85 instead of SU-100, SU-122 instead of IS-2 and BM-8-24 instead of Katyusha
  • enemy reinforcements reworked: Branderburg instead of paratroopers, PzKpfw III Ausf J without shields instead of PzKpfw II and some other changes, Tiger instead of King Tiger
  • a little more points at the beginning depending on difficulty level - up to 1000 points on easy
  • a little longer timer for Panthera reinforcements
  • some small map corrections
  • different prices for all units - they are much cheaper but all in all the best gun you can have is just 85 mm in KV-85
  • new russian tankman texture
  • new M4A3 texture
  • new Dodge texture
  • small SU-85 texture change
  • new main menu background
  • increased speed of T-34, Sherman, KV-85, SU-85 and 122, Dodge and M3 Halftruck to realistic one
M4A3 and Dodge - Soviet marking

At the moment I'm testing map to check everything and to make it balanced on other difficulty settings - as I think it's too easy right now. After that I will realise map for more public tests before I go for another one.

Soviet Sherman should be the M4A2, with M4A2E8 like, but different walking device
