I'm thinking of designing a fantasy scenario based on the premise that Mussolini and the Italians actually had the wit and ability to launch a surprise attack on Malta concurrently with their DOW on June 10 1940. Italian forces would be based on realistic troop availability, which I have. I expect that the Brit OOB is known...all I can find is that there were about 4000 british troops present, some 42 AA guns and 4 Gladiators.

Can anyone point me at more information on the Brits on Malta in June 1940?

Thanks in advance for any help

Try regiments.org for Brit orbat - I would start with units known to be on Malta later on, and see when they arrived. In fact I would use that technique with pretty much all sources - look for any Malta orbat you can find, and work backwards to see when units arrived. You will be left with those that were already there June 1940.

Some of the books on Malta also mention when the various KOMR battalions were raised.

Air units are less critical since they don't figure in the battle. You can hazard a guess at the number of effective bombing raids each side could muster (e.g. four Gladiators = no effective bombing raids) per day, keeping in mind the distances involved will limit the number of sorties the attackers can manage.

Regards
Steve

I have completed the first draft of the Malta 1940 scenario and will post it in the download section.

Edit: Upon Further Review, the Matrix forums do not have a download section...
2nd Edit: Upon Even Further Review, there appears to be a CTD that pops up when playing as Allies, I expect its Operator Error on my part, but don't have time at the mo to sort it out...will do so this weekend

I modified the existing Malta map to remove airfields that were incomplete or non-existant in June of 1940. That map is Malta 1940.aam and will not overwrite the original Malta Map


This is my first attempt, I would appreciate any comments.

High Krausen,

If you email it to me I'll take a look at it.
