The Gembloux Gap, Belgium, 12th May 1940: The Battle of Hannut. Since the beginning of the campaign the Germans are doing their best to make the Allies believe that the main thrust of the German attack is in the plain of Belgium. To reinforce this belief the Germans attack with the 3rd and 4th Panzer divisions from the XVI. AK. On the French side everything is going according to the plans. The Corps de Cavalerie has created a screen in front of the Gembloux Gap to protect the infantry who is supposed to hold the defensive line of the Dyle. General Prioux, commander of the Cavalry Corps, must hold the position for two days. There will be some surprises on both side, the excellence of the Somua S-35 on one side and the effectiveness of the German aviation on the other side. It will be the first tank battle of the Campaign. [Size medium]

It deserves at least one try :)

German tanks and air power vs. Allied tanks and artillery.
Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.

This scenario has challenges for both sides - quality French tanks, German Stukas and unit quality.

Probably the best scenario in the game.

we really don't understand how the French can lose here(or how the Germans can win!!!)

One of the better scenarios in the F40 game.

It`s a quite challenging scenario for both sides, with numerous maneuver possibilities for each side. Very fun and interesting to play, one of the most competitive scenarios of France `40.

In operational terms there is no hope for the French in this scenario, but in game terms the scenario is extremely well balanced. It can get boring for the French unless they want to risk a counter attack, which in turn risks playing right into the German's hands.
