  3. Just uploaded to site. Hope you enjoy. M60 Assault mission. Player controls 3x M60 Platoons. Push static front back 5000+ meters. takes place in the late 1980's versus Russian T-55,62,64, and 72's. Hannover Germany Area. Both sides have ample ARTY to use. Mission intended as COOP but plays well in SINGLE player. Expect 60-90 minutes to play through Expect Epic stand off Tank Battles at longer ranges. Choosing where to establish battle positions for your platoons is key. Poorly chosen and expect heavy losses. There is no scripted End Mission. Players choose when to decide if mission has been completed.
  4. D.O.W. Saturday Mission 8/10/16 @ GMT19:00 You can watch it live. You do NOT need Steel Beasts. http://www.twitch.tv/dogsofwarvu The Darkest Dreams by Lusik This scenario is a simulation and does not have any political message. Mission Summary : You have never thought it was going to happen. The darkest dreams came true. Something that we saw in our training films has suddenly become a brutal reality. 3 days ago Warsaw Pact forces advanced through the border in overwhelming force. The red tide that we have always been afraid of smashed our border outposts all along the front. The main push was through Fulda Gap but NATO forces have seen action all along the German-DDR border For the majority of soldiers in the company it is still is like a dream, which is visible in their young wide-open eyes. Luckily, the training and drills we have practiced for so long are taking over. Everybody knows what to do but the chaos is overwhelming. The horror... the horror…as Kurtz would say. How did it come to this? WW3 was sparked in the Middle East following combined NATO - Israeli strike on Syrian airbases. Airbases that were full of Soviet instructors and personnel. Over 120 Russians last their lives in the attack and several more were wounded. USSR treated this as act of open war and prepared a retaliatory strike in NATO air bases in Turkey. Dogfights between the the Soviet and NATO aircraft ensued resulting in several aircraft downed on both sides. UN summoned an emergency security council meeting, which was openly boycotted by USSR and China. Any attempts to find a peaceful solutions to the situation were overthrown. And then the attack came. Here in Germany, in our sector of the front, 2nd Cav have been fighting delaying action but suffered heavy losses. 2nd Armoured comes to the rescue. We are Task Force DOW which is compromised of mixed US German units. We were held in reserves but we have been finally sent to the front to face the enemy. We still have old but venerable M60s but our German allies sent them their newest baby - Leopard 2, along with some mechanised infantry in Marders. We are going to fight… and we know that for some of us this dream will be without awakening. Map Excerpts of the battalion commander's (HVAOC 6) orders for...BLUEFOR (D.O.W.) Task Force DOW is made of the following units: 2 platoons of M-60A3s (TTS) 1 platoon of M113A2s 1 platoon of Leopard 2A4s 1 platoon of Marders 3x M113 TOW support 2x M106 SPM 1x M88 Combat Engineering Vehicle 1x M113 Ambulance 2x Supply Trucks c) Attachments and detachments: 1x Battery of M109s with HE, Smoke and ICM 2x fire missions of FASCAM Due to difficult situation in several sectors of the front, no reinforcements are available. If you think that the enemy will break through, retreat and avid further losses. TERRAIN AND WEATHER: The terrain is typical for Saxony. Open areas with several hills. Try to find the best possible positions and defend Elze. Due to low pressure centre and a warm fron front that has been sitting here for the last two days the skies is fully overcast, which makes it difficult for us to use our aviation assets. Our forecast indicates that you may expect rain in the couple of hours. ******************************** ** Notes ** ******************************** SB Version: 4.004 64bit Mission Name: The darkest dreams Created by: Lusik Modified by: N/A Multi-Crew: Yes Single Crew: Yes Largest command: Company plus Smallest command:Crew Position Mission Duration: Up to 120 minutes depending on players Minimum number players: 5 Date: Saturday Mission 8/10/16 Time: 19:00 GMT Time (local): Click here Teamspeak IP: wait in lobby for access to other areas.

You do NOT need Steel Beasts. http://www.twitch.tv/dogsofwarvuMarines in the Storm by LusikThis scenario is a simulation and does not have any political message.Mission Summary :The last weeks have been damp and cold. It’ s not exactly the kind of weather you expected in the Middle East. We've been here since September and the only thing we have fought with so for was boredom. We have been away from our families, your friends and our life for too long. Last month, on the 17th the air offensive started. From what we have seen on CNN, Saddam took a heavy pounding but on the ground it’s been quiet… almost. At the end of last month Saddam forces made an attempt to take a Saudi town of Al-Khafji. Two of our recon units were trapped in the city for a couple of days but we let the Saudis to liberate they homeland a few days after. Two LAVs were lost due to friendly fire.You are part of Task Force Ripper, 2nd Marine Tank Battalion, 2nd Marine division. Our tanks have been mixed up with LAVs (NZLAV) to give you more flexibility. Our long wait has finally come to an end. Two days ago President Bush rejected Soviet peace plan and demanded Iraq begin withdrawal from Kuwait by noon Feb. 23 to avoid ground war. Iraqi information official branded U.S. position “shameful ultimatum and set one-sixte of Kuwait’s 950 oil wells ablaze. Today it’s the time to cross the border and liberate the country. MapMaps will be handed out to company commanders maximum 1 day before anticipated operation start time. ********************************** Notes **SB Version: 4.004 64bitMission Name: Marines in the StormCreated by: LusikModified by: N/AMulti-Crew: YesSingle Crew: YesLargest command: Company plusSmallest command:Crew PositionMission Duration: Up to 120 minutes depending on playersMinimum number players: 5Date: Saturday Mission 17/09/16Time: 19:00 GMTTime (local): Click here Teamspeak IP: wait in lobby for access to other areas.Room: Dogs of WarYou can just listen if you wish by using Teamspeak.

  6. Hello Everyone. I think this might be a bug. I ran a setup of 25 Chieftains against 25 M60s and the M60s decimated the Chieftains twice 25 to 0. I attached the AAR and scenario files to the topic. Chieftain Mk5 vs M60A3_082216STOFF_HIRN1914.aar Chieftain Mk5 vs M60A3.sce
