Hello lads, I am back. Currently switching mood to something different, but I still plan to add some Iranian scenarios if you think they are decent enough

This time - Rimini. Slot 813.
Yet another Brigade sized battle for patient players... and I believe it offers quite a challenge :3

Quote:
Battle of Rimini Airfield*
*
*
Date: 15th of September, 1944*
*
Location: Rimini, eastern coast of Italy*
*
Type: Greek/New Zealand/Canadian assault vs. German defence*
*
*
When Greece fell in 1941, a Greek government in exile was formed in Lebanon. As soon as it was possible, Greek government was interested in bringing troops into Allied war effort. However, Greeks were out of luck. 1st Greek Infantry Brigade was badly beaten and nearly destroyed during battle of El Alamein in late 1942, Italian and German submarines also did score numerous hits on Greek navy and merchant marine.
*
*
Final blow to the Greek effort came in April 1944, when a split in government in exile occured between two rivaling parties: the EAM (communists) and EDES (nationalists). Split also did trigger widespread mutiny of army and navy, after which nearly entire Greek force in exile was disbanded and interned in camps in Egypt and Palestyne. Given the wavering support of the British, new EDES nationalist government decided to hastily form a new Greek brigade - recruted only from "politically sure" soldiers and officers - and aid the war effort immediately. This is how the 3rd Greek Mountain Brigade (III EOT) was born.
*
*
The unit was shipped to Italy in late summer of 1944 and put under command of British 8th Army, togerther with New Zealanders, Canadians and Poles. As soon as Greeks were ready, they were immediately pushed to action. Their objective: Rimini - one of key German defended positions on the right flank of Gothic Line. Rimini itself was defended by elements of the German elite, the 1st Regiment of 1st Fallschirmjeager Division of General Richard Heidrich. The unit was further supplemented by battalion of Turkestani Osttruppen and heavy weapons: the deadly Pantherturms, assault guns, machine guns and anti-tank weapons. The Rimini itself (and its airfield) was heavily fortified, most bridges blown up, and ambushes prepared along the way. That was the objective of the Greek nationalist force these days.
*
*
Operations in Rimini sector begun on 12th September 1944. After heavy fighting - and New Zealand aid - Greek managed to capture Melo Stream with Casa Monticelli and Casa Monaldini positions, pushing the Fallschirmjeagers back. However, it was just a start. On 15th September, second phase of the attack begun, that focused on positions west of Rimini and led by Canadians. Greeks were ordered - together with a C Squadron of 18th New Zealand Armoured Regiment, 2nd Comapny of 22nd NZ Motor Rifle Battalion, 33rd NZ Anti-Tank Battery and 1st MG Company of Canadian Saskachewan Light Infantry Regiment - to assault the airfield and secure the city.
*
*
Battle of Rimini thus began. It would last for 3 days and nights, but Greeks would finally capture the airfield. Germans would then abandon the Rimini proper as undefensible, also due to Canadian breakthough on their sector. Greeks would hoist the Greek flag in RImini's mayor office and celebrate own troops' victory in this hard battle.
*
*
That would be the only battle of 3rd Greek Mointain Brigade during the war. Soon afterwards, with communist seazing power in Greece proper, they would be shipped - with some British troops - to the Athens, where their experience will help to form new Greek army and counter the communists. These events are known as Dekenvriana (The December Events) that mark the beginning of the Greek Civil War - as well as make decent prologue into cold war...
*
*
NOTE: When playing against AI, this scenario should be played from the Greek side.

This is like trying to herd cats. I rebuilt that to use slot 824 but now TS4Ever has released the last two in his series and used 824 and 825 ( apparently he did not read this post.......)

Battle of Rimini Airfield 9/44 is now in slot 826 in my master game and will be released as 826 whenever we do another mini update ( probably spring 2020 )

so... if you have more planned in that series the next one can use 827 and I PROMISE not to move it again

Side note I have slots 775 to 800, plus about 10 others in spots, was waiting for SaS and Ts4ever to use the assigned slots I mentioned a while back.

At this point I don't know where all the "open/free" slots are, but I have 30 in a series that I'd rather not break up (they cover 1908-1929).
