This is a map for Men of War that is based on GSM Fields of Honor mod. In this map you control 16 soviet soldiers who are defending small village from attacking germans. They come in waves and you have few minutes between them to repair enemy equipment, defences and organise soldiers. The map has some cool features like carrying fallen members of your group to medic and airplane supply drops.

I have not much to say anymore, grab the map from downloads section and try it out for yourself.
If you encounter any bugs or you would like something to be changed, feel free to say this.
You can also post how long you have survived. Our record is something like 16 waves witch took about 2 hours.

How to install
Make sure you have German Soldiers Mod FoH 5 installed Moddb.com
Extract the kolhoz folder to Men of War\mods\
Default path: Program Files\505games\1C\Men of War\mods
Steam path: Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\Common\Men of War\mods

How to play
Start up your game, go to options and mods tab. Apply GSM mod and then Kolhoz.
You need to have GSM mod loaded at first because otherwise your game will crash and wont start untill you delete kolhoz folder.
You can play Kolhoz in singleplayer if you go to campaing - bonus - kolhoz
If you want to play in coop just go to multiplayer or lan and select cooperative game mode. Kolhoz is in the map list.

Gameplay tips
-Kolhoz is very hard map and you might not get far at first time. If you keep failing, try a different strategy and position your soldiers and equipment differently.
-Find a friend to play with. Its much easier to play this in co-op when you don't have to control every soldier by yourself.
-Use the time between waves to repair vehicles, plant mines and carry wounded soldiers to medic.
-Make sure that every soldier has weapon, ammunition and bandages. You can find those in crates.
-Keep soldiers in cover from enemy vehicles.
-KV1 wreck in the map can be fixed with welder. Go near the tank with a soldier and you get the side objective. The repairs take some time and work but it's surely worth the effort.
-Use reinforcements wisely, order plane supplies just where you need them so you don't have to carry stuff around with soldiers.
-Mortar and stationary MG's can be very useful at keeping enemy out from the village but keep in mind that they run out of ammo very quickly.
-You can capture enemy tanks by destroying their engine or tracks. If the tank is unable to move when wave retreats, the crew will jump out and leave the tank behind.
-When you see that enemy brings artillery to battlefield, try to destroy it with plane reinforcements.

Now in the summer I have some free time in my use and I decided to finally finish my map. I deleted most of the unimportant stuff and focused on gameplay...

Hello!

It's really been some time since I've last visited here. I'm amazed that people still play and download this :)
I was actually making a winter war based mod to MoW AS after this got released, but I decided to cancel working with that.. modding and mapping are so time consuming and you have to sacrifice lots of free time, something that I didn't have much back then.
I started making Kolhoz map probably in 2009 and it was supposed to be just a simple wave defence without any of the fancy stuff. I didn't know anything about map making back then and I had to experiment alot with the editor. As I learned to script better I just kept adding things and improving them. The map was never really finished and its still pretty buggy from all the complex scrips but its working and playable.

I'm afraid that I'm not going to update this. It would require so much to just learn everything again since I have not even played the game for years... But maybe I will someday start working with newer versions of MoW and create similar map like this. I probably wouldn't spend 2 years working with it as I did with this mod/map tough :D

Have fun playing the cool map and feel free to upgrade and mod it yourself if you want to! I will inform here if I start working with something in the future :)

This mission was, and still is, ******* amazing.

Played it for the first time yesterday since **** knows when, and it's still my favourite Men of War mission ever.

If L4ZZe really is never going to make anything like this again, then we have lost a truly great modder. Thank you for this fantastic mission.

idk how to do a review on this (plz tell me) but the map is AWESOME,one of the best scripted and planned out maps that i ever played in a mow game,because they promote what mow SHOULD:resourcefulness,tactics,units microing,ammo and equipment conservation,simple and well understood mission objectives and an overall FANTASTIC atmosphere plus the awesome cnc music that really charges the already tense feeling of having to defend with little to no equipment!

WELL DONE L4ZZe I SALUTE YOU

Alwayz have fun,
Emperor
