Men of War: Assault Squad features a completely new cooperative skirmish game mode with access to five different nations (Russia, Germany, USA, Commonwealth and, for the first time ever in the Men of War series, Japan) as well as increased realism and accessibility.
Brettevillette: # 2 German Skirmish mission. Like in "Tessel" mission, there is a lot of new things: - Detailed and historical map of Brettevillette, a real village situated at 16kms West of Caen (Normandie - France 1944) with new ground textures - New script with auto reload points on each flags - News ambiance sounds (cows, pigs, birds, insects, flags..) - A lot of new voices for German Units! - New bushes camo and skins for most all German tanks (Now also for the King Tiger). As suggested by many players for my "Tessel" mission, I’d replace the Churchills (that were too hard to destruct) by others tanks (Comet and the new model of the Cromwell), I suppressed the “Croc” Sherman by a normal ones. I've also added some Ai mortars (he he). I've spend a lot of time to propose this hard mission and I hope you will enjoy it! (thank's for your comments and don't forget to vote!) Regards, Bassmaniac
I'm proud to present you my #2 German skirmish mission: "Brettevillette".
It's a real little village situated at 20kms west of Caen (near Rauray and Tessel) where intensives fights were in June 1944.
Like in my last mission "Tessel", this mission include a lot of new things for Men of War Assault Squad:
- New skirmish script with auto ammo reload points for your units (crates full of ammo, on each flag, to avoid tank stuck) so finish to micro manage your soldiers for ammo and bandages in the battlefield!
- New skins for Medic, tank crews and Waffen SS (there is also for sniper, radio etc and new German Elites: 12 SS Hitler Jungen , 2 SS div. "Das Reich", German Fallschirmjägers. (notice that there is also new colored labels for each type of unit to easily find the right unit on the battlefield!)
The map is very near of the real relief of Brettevillette. You will discover news ambiance sounds, giving this map a good immersive ambiance.
It's a heavy file to download for a mission, because i've included a lot of sounds and all my skins, specially my news camos with bushes for all the German's tanks of this mission..
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.
"From June to July 1944, during operation "Martlet", Scottish, UK and Canadians of the 2nd British army of Montgomery tried to take Caen by the west..
Montgomery was thinking to reach Caen in few days after the D Day but German's 26 SS panzer div., 2nd SS PZ div Das Reich and Panzer Lehr div. stopped them in the west of Caen, and they were the most intensive fights of the west front of WWII, in Rauray, Tessel and Brettevillette villages.
On June 25, 1944 at 4:15: in the morning mist, heading for Rauray. The final goal was to go fast in the direction of the south, to reach Villers-Bocage and Hill112, near Baron sur Odon, and cut the German's defenses in 2 parts.
The attack by the 49th Division with the 8th armored brigade under his command began with a steady right side up Tessel, reached in the afternoon. Patrols were conducted through the woods to the south but then, the British met with considerable opposition, mainly from the 12th SS Panzer and Panzer Lehr in Fontenay le Pesnel on their left and their progress was stopped.
At 21 hours, another attack supported by tanks was successful and the Fontenay fell around midnight despite fierce resistance from the Germans.
On the morning of June 26, the attack on Rauray was taken from the village of Tessel-Bretteville, but progress was soon stopped by fierce resistance and the fact that the country was ill-suited to tanks. The tanks have been disengaged and brought back online when the brigade reached the outskirts of Rauray with the infantry in close support.
A fierce battle continued throughout the next day, and the enemy has mounted several attacks of tanks from the south and southwest. June 28, was finally captured Brettevillette, then later lost again following an attack against the 2nd SS Panzer Division, with heavy allied losses.."
