Commander 4th Armoured Brigade’s intent is to resume the advance toward HAMELIN as soon as possible in order to secure its critical road and rail infrastructure and isolate the spearhead of 20th Guards Combined-Arms Army to the west.  Commanding Officer Gren Gds BG has made your tank-heavy Combat Team D the lead formation of the battle group and you have been ordered to advance north-east from AERZEN to secure EDINGTON in troop (platoon) strength or greater.  You are to secure EDINGTON no later than H+90.  Your combat team is not to advance beyond limit of exploitation (LOE) ALFRED.  Once CT D has secured EDINGTON the remainder of the Gren Gds BG will conduct a passage of lines through LOE ALFRED and secure the remainder of HAMELIN.


Major, the plan to complete the mission is up to you.

This mission was absolutely a joy to play! It was challenging, and inspired me to spend a good amount of time on IPB and developing a maneuver plan. The scenario felt fairly well balanced: the terrain offered advantages, and disadvantages to both sides, and the enemy, while in the defense, didn't feel completely overpowered for the forces at your disposal. Also, variations in the enemy's plan makes replayability high. All in all, a standout scenario that I think every Steel Beasts player should try at least once. So, what are you waiting for? Download it immediately!

The original version was a good challenge and this revision just builds on that while including all the improvements that version 4.1x brings to the table.

Just finished the mission. Very impressed with the lighting and weather effects: those purple bolts flying from the distant mountain in the deep blue mist.  Good, balanced and really enjoyable scenario.
