From: Haarlem, Holland
Would a scenario of Holland 1940 be possible with COTA? I looked and the map involved with all three airdrops (around The Hague, Rotterdam and Dordrecht/Moerdijk) will fit in a 40 - 55 km map, so reading the mapmaker manual this should (just) be possible.
As the Luftwaffe airborne divs are already there (albeit with a 1941 OOB and TOE) they should be doable too. But how about the Dutch forces? Simulate these with the Greeks maybe? Lots of infantry in various quality (mostly low ;-( , a few Marines, some armoured cars, few artillery batteries, lots of AAA and a bit of naval support.
Maps are no problem, I have the original 1938 military maps for the whole of Holland.
Would be nice to do this one, as it was the first major airborne operation with both political/strategic goals (capturing the Queen and government in The Hague) as well as operational ones (capturing four airfields around The Hague and Rotterdam + the three major bridges at Moerdijk, Dordrecht and Rotterdam that lead right into the heart of Holland.
And it was a close run thing too. The 22nd Luftlande Div was completely shattered, the 7th Fallschirmjaeger succeeded in its bridge capturing missions, but had only a Frost/Arnhem like hold on the bridge in Rotterdam and had to be 'helped' by bombing Rotterdam to pieces to make the whole thing work.
A nice operation for the AA engine!
