It is there no better terrain for the US to stop the moving of the soviets? the soviet gamer had no air support. and if the soviet move trough the vale of Dollbach, the US player have only a short option to stop the red army.
What's to say? A very little little let us do. And all is done. Then let the trumpets sound the tucket sonance and the note to mount;For our approach shall so much dare the field that England shall couch down in fear and yield.(Shakespeare,Henry the fifth)

A different kind of map than in most scenarios. I felt that my job was to cause casualties to a passing enemy rather than really meet and fight it.
turn based H2H with CMBN, CMRT, CM Black Sea, CMSF2, CM Cold War. Game engine v4.

An interesting concept as US forces aren't trying to stop the Russians, just slow their passage and make it costly. Not a bad scenario but it needs a couple things fixed for H2H play. The Soviet side has 4x helicopters for support, but no way to call them in as there is no air controller. They appear to be pre-targeted in the expectation that the Soviet side will be directed by the AI. Next, there is a map glitch on the bridge so that vehicles trying to get across get hung up right in the kill zone for American TOW missiles. And of course once there's a single destroyed vehicle on the bridge that game engine's logic for vehicles trying to thread their way past an obstacle leads to a traffic jam and more dead vehicles. So maybe remove the bridge and just run the highway across the map normally. Finally the Russians start the game in a cramped and unnatural deployment zone, and their reinforcements arrive in the same cramped and unnatural location. They need to start somewhere other than where the scenario has them.

Interesting concept and fairly enjoyable. Needs a few minor details fixed to be suitable for H2H play.

An interesting scenario. As the US forces I was faced with the option of either sitting back and sniping from long range, or closing the distance (and potentially losing more assets as a result). A close game, and entertaining. Has good replayability possibilities

Entertaining for Us side surely.

This was my first battle in CW.

My recommendation to the Russian team is to get your vehicles off the map as soon as possible.

I positioned tanks to take out whatever US TOW launchers they could see.

Mistake.....they were destroyed by what they could not see....and this changed the victory points significantly. It would have been better to simply get them off the map.

So, this battle is not really a battle - it is more of an evasion by the Russian side.
