A HvsH scenario who will see two tank formations facing each other in the farming plain north of Hamelin.

Two version are available, one with “lowtech” tanks and one with “higher tech” tanks. Have a good fight !

One of the best CM Cold War scenarios I've played so far.
turn based H2H with CMBN, CMRT, CM Black Sea, CMSF2, CM Cold War. Game engine v4.

A tank on tank battle with no territory control.

Pro: Excellent shape and landscape for the map.

Con: A reserve battalion of T-62s, no matter how upgraded, is not match for an equal point force of max upgraded M60s. The blue tanks might as well had cloaking devices when comparing the vision between the two tanks. The scenario recommends an aggressive tank push, but if either side (or worse, both) just hide behind their side of the map, then its becomes either a massacre or a snooze fest.

Overall- I'd be really interested in seeing this map used for a more conventional battle.

A large map with an interesting mix of suburban infrastructure, water, hills, & flat planes. U.S. MBT's are superior no surprise there. My only complaint is there is not enough incentive to go for it.
