Disk Invasion Sweden 1943 (Untested Campaign)

From the Wargamer scenario depot; I found a copy on an old Steel Panthers themed CD-ROM in my back up collection:

Steel Panthers: World War II : Invasion Sweden 1943

File Author : wulfir
File Added : 12 JAN 2004

Location : Sweden
Opponents : Germany vs Sweden

Description :

This is a campaign of a fictional German invasion of Sweden set in the summer of 1943, the time when the threat of war against Sweden was perhaps greatest!

Go like the devil, Oberstleutnant!
Quote:
Invasion Sweden 1943

Date: July - August, 1943

Nations: Germany vs Sweden

Campaign location: Sweden

Description: This is a fictional campaign.

With the German reverses at the end of 1942 and with a now reasonably capable defence force Sweden felt it was time to start distancing itself from Germany, who still had the small country more or less surrounded by the occupation of Denmark and Norway. This sparked the likely greatest threat to Sweden during the entire war, even worse than the early years when Norway, Denmark and greater part of western Europe succumbed to the Nazi onslaught.

Historically the Germans had worked out a plan for an summer campaign against Sweden with troops based in Norway, supplemented with minor landings on the Swedish east coast. The German assessment of the Swedish defence was that while the navy packed a certain punch the army would not be capable of mounting major attack operations, though they could prove stubborn in defence. The Germans were not keen on a winter campaign though, thinking the Swedes would receive major benefits due to well developed winter equipment.

Thus this fictional campaign assumes Hitler orders an invasion of Sweden to be carried out simultaneously with the Kursk offensive.

The German spearhead for such an operation was intended to be the 25th Panzer Division, purposely raised in Norway - a country not really suited to large armoured units - to be used in the case of an assault on Sweden.

Historically, the Swedes had been able to break the German Gehimschriber in early 1941 - making it possible to monitor messages between Norway and Germany. For the purpose of this campaign the Swedes have already had advance warning of German intentions. Your enemy have prepared for years, and now, he knows you are coming.

Design by Ulf Lundstrom
Changes so far:

1.) Converting to WinSPx format.
2.) Renumbering to Slot #19
3.) Increasing points by 1.625 based upon my earlier repricing of AMERICAN CRUSADERS -- which allocated 3996 points to buy a US Tank battalion; this needed to be raised to 6,500 points; a 1.625x increase.

As before; the original and converted campaign files are in different folders.

Posting it here in the semi-raw converted state (not yet playtested); because I don't have the sheer time to playtest it; but it'd be a shame to see this lost to oblivion again.

Had a problem after the end of the 2nd scenario. I ended up playing against the Germans in 1939 in the Polish Scenario (Black Brigade I think).

I don't know if this cross link error is due to the file or something with my computer.

Has anyone else had this happen?


This is a fun campaign and I would like to be able to continue

It works.

You need to save both versions but only use the original. You will need to edit the points since they are not correct in the original.

This campaign needs to be redone.

Back then I did not have access to the sources I have now...

The little meatball eating bastards put up a tough fight. I came to hate their AT units.

Looking forward to the next incarnation of this campaign.

If you redo it I will gladly add it to the next patch.

There will be new tools next patch to sort scenarios in a number of ways..........by year or month, by length, by nation, by battle type...details will be revealed later but it reveals some very interesting things and makes finding scenarios by personal preference a snap...need to find all the scenarios set in 1951 in MBT?....no problem. Need to know where all the September 1944 scenarios are in SPWW2?.....no problem. Need to find all the scenarios where France is P1 ?............ no problem. They can all be located in seconds.....no more searching manually

A campaign or two - you will have to learn how to add scenarios to a campaign - this is, however, easy to do.

winSPWW2 or winSPMBT - or both.

Let me know what country/countries, time period/s, size of the battles etc you'd like to play - it can be historical or fictional - and I'll build scenarios that can be linked to a campaign. You will play and try to win them.
