I have thought of a few good ideas for some maps, and decided to post these 2. Units with exclamation points around them mean they will needed to be added to the mod first. Battle of Villers Bocage everyone who knows who Micheal Wittmann is know what Villers Bocage means to him. My idea is to have a map of this town and some outlying area that is set up like this. Basic outline of the city- http://www.strategos.demon.co.uk/D-Day/Villers1.gif German equipment- 3 or 4-Tigers (Wittmann had 6 under his command but thats to many) 1-Kubelwagen -Basic infantry weapons Close Quarters=MP40 Assault= K98 AT=Shreck Support=MG42 Engie=K98 British Equipment- 5-Cromwells (4 if the Germans only get 3 Tigers) 1-Firefly 2-!Bren Gun Carriers! 2-Jeeps (maybe 3 Cromwells and 2 Fireflys) -Basic infantry weapons Officer=Sten Assault=No.4 AT=PIAT Support=Bren Engie=No. 4 Achtung Panzer! has a good article about this but I wont post it unless asked. Battle for Cologne I couldnt dig up a good map for this so ill leave someone like Taranov to get it. I know he can get one. Since it was the only real battle involving Pershings I decided it should go in the mod. We need some custom buildings for this one. Maybe even the Cologne Cathedral if you wanna get detailed :naughty:. German Equipment- 3-Panthers 1-Tiger 2-!Nashhorns! (they are the only thing to have a confirmed kill of a Pershing) 1-Puma (need a fast tank for germans) 4-Pak40s or 88s in town. 2-!Verlings on rooftops! (need new building for that) 1-Opel Blitz Ammo -Infantry Weapons Close Quarters=MP40 Assualt=Stg44 AT=Faust 100 Support=MG42 Engie=K98 American Weapons- 2-!M26 Pershings! 2-!M4A3s (76mm)! 1-!M24 Chaffee! 1-!M8 SPG! 2-!M4A3E2 Jumbos! 1-Studebaker Ammo 2-!Jeeps with 30 Cal.! Aircraft 1-P47D Infantry weapons- Close Cuarters-Thompson Assualt-Garand AT-Bazooka Support-!30 Cal.! Engie-M1 Carbine or !Grease Gun! Comment if you want.

wow, your second map looks pretty damn easy to do huh? roll%20eyes%20%28sarcastic%29.gif but yah, both of these would be pretty nice, but maybe for the first one you could give the allies a little more in the way of AT power, even if it didnt happen in real life, cuase if its to easy for the germans then no one will play it.

I thought 5 cromwells and a firefly with infantry support should handle tigers with ease in a city environment. Maybe add another Firefly if neccesary. P.S. I never said they were easy ;)

I like both ideas. The Villers battle will be pretty fun. Keep it medium sized and make it a ambush game. Tanks hiding on side-streets and what not. Cologne will be equally as cool, make sure you put in the big cathedral! But leave out the P40, or at least don't give it bombs. Because that will ruin the tank vs tank fun. Good ideas mazz.

Whitmann was the guy that KOd about 30 shermans (yeah, real hard) right? Either way, WTF is a Firefly doing at Bocage? That got its first large-scale combat debut in the Battle of Hurtgen forrest... Late 44.

I included the Firefly since it is disputed whether is was a Firefly or Typhoon that killed Wittmann Tiger and his crew. (and no i dont wanna hear your theory on it) And that way the Cromwells wont get owned. Micheal WIttmann was a German tank commander who by the time of his death has a 200+ confirmed tank kills and 150+ AT emplacement kills. (combined East and West fronts). His original gunner, Bobby Woll, is my name sake in game.

Cool ideas, but I think the Studebaker ammo is going to be a tough one, lol.
