Default Silver Lions II - Preview

Ok, for those interested, here is a preview of what I am considering for the Silver Lions II User Campaign. It sort of follows the story/theme of the original Silver Lions Campaign and picks up when the war starts back up one year later.

I have created the 1st scenario and put it into a User Campaign format for playing. It is expected to take some time to build this especially as I am considering the development of a Mexican Drug War II User Campaign.

If you want to download it, play through the initial scenario and comment here in this thread I would appreciate any feedback.

I also welcome any suggestions/recommendations on what "path" the story should follow.

Silver Lions II

Date: August 1986
Game/Version: WinSPMBT 4.0
Fixed Core Force Campaign

Average Turns:_TBD
Nation: United States Army
Command Size: Company/Team

Number of Scenarios:_TBD

INTRODUCTION:

In the summer of 1985 World War III finally erupted between NATO and the Warsaw Pact. After 3 months of heavy fighting and the seesawing back and forth of the front lines a cease fire was finally negotiated. For the most part, the orginal borders were restored with the exception of a couple of significant NATO penetrations into Western Czechoslovakia. During the somewhat peaceful winter of 1985/86, both sides rearmed and redeployed their forces for the expected resumption of hostilities. It was at this time the US 8th Infantry Division (Pathfinders) was deployed into defensive positions in the vicinity of Cachrov, Czechoslovakia. In August 1986, fighting was renewed when Warsaw Pact forces launched extensive offensive operations all along the front.

For this campaign, you are the commander of the US Army's D Company (Team Delta), 2nd Battalion (Silver Lions), 68th Armor Regiment, 8th Infantry Division. This unit is a standard US company sized armor heavy task force. Your unit is deployed in the area of Cachrov and the men await your orders.

Special thanks to Marek Tucan for his maps. I will be using these excellent maps for the area where the campaign takes place.

This is just the 1st scenario of many so much of the losses you sustain will likely not be able to be replaced for the campaign.

The FO's are part of the Company/Team TO&E for the campaign (you only have the 1st scenario).

I am also going to create a document that sets some limitations/criteria for their use during the battles.

For example you have an ALO and an FSO. The ALO (Air Liason Officer) who technically cannot call for or adjust Artillery Fire as he is attached from the Air Force and has no access to Artillery frequencies. The FSO (Fire Support Officer) cannot call in or adjust Aircraft as he is Artillery Officer assigned from the Brigade's Artillery Battalion and has no access to Air Force frequencies.

Lost 0 men, killed everything I could spot. However if the enemy forces were stronger and more coordinated, they would pose a serious threat.

EDIT: Deployment: CO in the middle, on the ridge just above village, Coy. TWMP tank as his wingman. First platoon deployed above, again on the ridgeline, except on tank kept in reserve.
Second tank platoon deployed on the eastern (lower) edge of Cachrov, facing east. This time three tanks forming a base of fire and one in forward position (performed excellently, though at first it showed trouble hitting targets at 500 meters).
Inf plt deployed in the village proper. Managed to avoid artillery for most part, hence no casaulties. Other than that, I dunno if the enemy was even able to fire a shot at me.

Looking forward to the camp (I know, I know, maps needed )

What I am also looking at doing is adding in some alternate path choices to add in a little variety, at least in the early stages of the campaign. I have plotted out about 7 scenarios in detail so far, just need to Q&A the text, then build and test them.

Since we are a pretty much an "international" group what interest would there be in seeing a British Core force for this theme? Would it be better to just offer an "Open Core Force" option to the campaign so users can pick their own force to play?

I have uploaded a "Preview" version (TO THIS POST) that includes 2 full scenarios. You select between 2 possible "options" and fight that battle. Depending on your choice, you either get hit by the Regimental Recon/Forward Security Element/Advance Guard OR the Regimental Main Body of the leading Motorized Rifle Regiment of the 19th CVA Motorized Rifle Division.

I can't post this without another thanks to Marek Tucan for his maps.

Just a quick note - the ARV will get some protection, right?

Yeah, a truck and an M113 (both with 50cal's) and a section of mechanics with M16's.
