On the 9th April 1940, Germany landed troops at several major Norwegian coastal towns in a daring plan to capture both the Norwegians and British off-guard. Despite several naval skirmishes the plan more or less worked, however, the most important targets King Haakon VII, the parliament and cabinet managed to flee just in time as German troops landed in the capital of Oslo. The fighting in Norway would continue for 62 days, longer than the invasion of both Poland and France.
This mod for Hearts of Iron III: Their Finest Hour aims to more accurately recreate Norway's situation at the time of the Nazi invasion. The mod focuses on how prepared Norway could have been (and if it fails to achieve this, at least make Norway more fun to play). The mod's main plans:
The first early release has been released, remember, this is only a very early release only to indicate the direction the mod is taking.
The mod requires tommylotto's The Fox and the Lion mod available here. I may release another version that doesn't require this later.
Right now I am particularly looking for information on Norwegian torpedo boats, weapons, specifications, division names, stations etc. Also, I will be interested in more information on the Norwegian army's order of battle in 1936. Additionally, as I am in Australia, accessing the Norwegian archives is a little bit difficult, if someone would be willing to do some research and retrieval in either the Norwegian, Swedish or Danish archives I would be duly grateful. Please contact me with any of these resources.
IMPORTANT: Due to the instability of the Fox and Lion mod I have decided to remove it as a requirement. In essence, there will be little difference in the direction I take the mod, however, I will ensure that the mod remains compatible with the Fox and Lion mod for those who wish to continue using it. Additionally, to shrink file size, the music of the mod will be available in a separate download.
