Some information about the map:

After the ending of Operation Citadel the Red Army started a massive counterattack to get back the areas around Bjelgorod and Kharkov, as well as the industrial area in the Donez basin. As opposed to the beginning of the war the Red Army had now learned from their mistakes and destroyed the German frontline, which suffered from the Battle of Kharkov. This Operation was a painful surprise to the Germans, who expected a quiet summer. This breakthrough led the 5. Garde Panzerarmee to Borisovka, which was 26 km away from the Armee Kempf and the 4. Panzerarmee.

The ZiS-3 was a very successful gun, and many give it a place as one of the best artillery pieces of World War II. It is certainly a welcome addition to BGF...our testers have been getting pummeled for weeks by German armor with no way to counter them! Seth Soldier and Tomcraft answered their pleas with this beautiful gun, and takiwa brought it ingame. Now they have a very powerful 76.2mm gun that can knock out any German light and medium tank at a distance, while most heavy tanks can be dealt with at close range.

Over 103,000 of these guns were produced during the course of the War, and it is a proud addition to the BGF mod! We hope you enjoy it!

The only collaboration we have is with other Black Sand Studios mods (Project Reality, EOD, USI, etc.) and German Front mod. We have no plan as far as I know of joining forces with other mods.

Development of the 5cm Leichte Granatwerfer 36 was started in 1934 and it was adopted for service in 1936. Its intended role was to engage pockets of resistance that were beyond the range of hand grenades (a role in which more than 550,000 rounds were used during the French Campaign in 1940); as such it was designed for high angled fire only (no less than 42°). The main drawbacks of the weapon were its inadequate range and the limited effectiveness of its ammunition (not heavy enough). Because of this by 1943 the LeGrW 36 production was ended and they were slowly withdrawn from frontline service although they were in service until the end of the war with non-frontline units.

Specifications

leGrW36
Calibre: 50 mm (1.969 in)
Lengths: barrel 0,465 m (18.3 in)
Weight: in action 14 kg (30.8 lb)
Elevation: +42° to +90°
Traverse: 34°
Maximum range: 520 m (569 yards)
Bomb weight: 0.9 kg (1.98 lb)
Original designers: Rheinmetall-Borsig AG

The 8cm Schwere Granatwerfer 34 was the standard German medium mortar throughout the war and gained a reputation for extreme accuracy and a rapid rate of fire (a lot down to the crews training). It was developed in 1932 and entered service in 1934 and over 72,000 were produced by 1945. It was straightforward in design and was therefore robust and could be broken down into 3 sections for carrying. The sGrW34 could fire a extensive range of ammunition (from high explosive to smoke and target illumination bombs) as well as a wide range of captured ammunition (although with a slight loss in performance).

Specifications

sGrW34
Calibre: 81.4 mm (3.2 in)
Lengths: barrel 1.143 m (45 in)
Weight: in action 56.7 kg (125 lb)
Elevation: +40° to +90°
Traverse: 9° to 15° variable with elevation
Maximum range: 2400 m (2,625 yards)
Bomb weight: 3.5 kg (7.72 lb)

The Opel Blitz was developed in the early 1930’s and entered service in 1935 (military production: 1937-1944 – production disrupted by Allied bombing) and it was found to be superior to its competitors. During this time the Opel company was under the control of General Motors which had acquired the company in 1929, however the management wasn’t trusted by the German authorities and the company was nationalised in 1940 (General Motors only regained control in 1948 ). The Blitz came in two version the A (4X4) and the S (2x4) types with only small differences (body and undercarriage) between the two. There were many different types ranging from open versions to closed versions and half-track versions (Opel Maultier).

Specifications:
Opel Blitz
Powerplant: one 54.8-kW (73.5-bhp)Opel 6-cylinder petrol engine

The Sdkfz 251 was Germany’s primary armoured personnel carrier in World War 2; it could carry ten troops or 1.5 tonnes of cargo and could also tow an additional 2.7 tonnes. The version C has a different nose compared to the previous two versions because of poor engine cooling which caused the engine to overheat. During the war there were many different versions of the standard halftrack (23 officially named) which performed a number of roles from artillery support to specialised versions for towing and radio communications.

Jung @ BF110-C

The BF-110 heavy fighter was first flown in May of 1936 and by the end of World War Two around 6,000 produced. The first successful version was the C version which had improved engines (DB-601 in place of the Jumo-210) as well as improved armour and equipment for use as a fighter, bomber and reconnaissance aircraft. At the start of the war the BF-110 was more feared than the BF-109 and it was very effective in Poland against a weaker air force but however in the Battle of Britain they incurred horrific losses which resulted in the removal from the frontline fighter role. After being removed from frontline day service the BF-110 was adapted to become a night fighter were it had greater success against the RAF four engined bombers that were attack Germany at night as well as being adapted to become a fighter bomber.

The Il-2 was a Russian ground attack aircraft that was built in huge numbers by the Russians to support its troops during the war. When the productions numbers are combined with its successor the Il-10 it is the most produced military aircraft of all time with over 36,000 examples made. The original Il-2 was a single seat heavily armored plane which the pilots found to be underpowered and very vulnerable to attack by enemy fighters despite its heavy armor. This resulted in it being redesigned to accommodate a gunner for self-defense (although early on the gunner did not have the same armor protection as the pilot). This became the Il-2M which was hastily put together and was later again redesigned to give the Il-2M3 which was the definitive version of the family which continued in service from its introduction in 1942 until the end of the war in 1945.

The T-26 was based on the British Vickers 6 Ton tank and over 10 years around 12,000 were produced. It replaced the aging T-18 and over the course of its career the armament was increased (from 2 machine guns up to a 45mm cannon), this gave it more powerful armament than its contemporaries but it had light armour which was only corrected in the last version. At the time of Barbarossa it was the most numerous tank in the Red Army with 8,500 units however the losses mounted and it was gradually withdrawn from service on the Eastern Front from 1942.

The Ba-6 was developed in the early 1930’s and was built on the modified chassis of the US Ford AA 4x2 truck (6x4 chassis was called the Gaz-AAA). This design limited its mobility to roads or hard ground (although mobility could be increased with tracks over the rear 2 wheels). It used the same 45mm cannon armoured turret that was used on the T-26 and the BT-7. The Ba-6 was externally very similar to the Ba-3 with only the absence of a rear door. It was also the first armoured car to use bullet resistant tires. With stricter weight controls decreased the overall weight of the car to 5.12 tons and jst under 400 were produced between 1936 and 1938.

The SdKfz 231 was a replacement for the 6 wheeled armoured car of the same designation as there was a need for more cross-country capabilities and the process was completed by 1940. It became the backbone of the Wehrmacht’s heavy reconnaissance brigades until the end of the war.

Speed on road: 100 kph (62mph)
Range on road: 300 km (186 miles)
Range off road: 167 km (103 miles)

The SdKfz 232 was similar to the SdKfz 231 (it also retained the designation of the 6 wheeled armoured car) and was designed to follow it into battle as it was equipped with a radio - despite the fact that the SdKfz 231 had a radio. Despite this fact it remained in production until 1942.

Specifications

The SdKfz 263 was intended for use as a unit commanders vehicle and as a result it did not have a turret and had a reduced armament of just one machine gun. It was phased out of production in late 1941 as it was found that halftracks better suited this role.

The Stuka was feared during the German Blitzkriegs of 1939-41 and was a major component of the success of the attacks by providing deadly accurate tactical strikes against enemy armour, communications and transport. With this help from the “flying artillery” the Germans managed to roll through Poland, the Low Countries, France and Russia during the first few years of the war. The Stuka served throughout the war although it was obsolete by 1942, it was continually upgraded and provided with different armament (including 2 37mm anti-tank guns in under wing pods in the G version).

When the Panzer IV D and F1 encountered the Russian T34 it became obvious that the short 75mm KwK 37 gun was not able to penetrate the T34 on larger distances.
So the Panzer IV F2 was equipped with the pak40 anti tank gun deal with the T34 on larger distances. To raise the amount of rounds carried with the tank, the interior was changed. Finally the PIV F2 could carry 87 rounds of ammunition(HEAT, smoke, APCR, APCBC, HE) for the KwK 40 L/43.
With the high velocity gun, the Panzer IV was a serious thread to the Russian T34 and superior to all other allied tanks.

The Panzer IV was the main medium tank used by the German army during the Second World War as well as the most produced (~8500 built) although it is largely overshadowed by its bigger brothers in the Panther and Tiger. It was originally designed as an infantry support tank armed with a low velocity 75mm gun (Ausf A-F1) whilst the Panzer III’s dealt with any enemy armour encountered. As the war went on it was continually up-armoured and up-gunned being fitted with a high velocity 75mm (Ausf F2-J) as the low velocity gun was not designed for tank combat. The version we are showing today is the Ausf D which uses the low velocity 75mm gun for infantry support rather than tank combat. The Ausf D was the first true production model of the Panzer IV (the Ausf A-C were mainly used for testing) and so the Ausf D was the first version that the tank divisions received.
