The old version of the campaign is long since broken and undergoing refurbishment, however this thread now serves it's purpose as the thread for my East Germany faction and updates towards it, as well as the maps and their remakes featured in the campaign. Don't forget to pick up the maps as I rebuild them!
Most Recent East German data folder is attached to my latest update within the thread.
NOTE: The current uploaded version is an alternative, stopgap version designed to address problems within the campaign while I attempt to figure out a better workaround. If you have installed the campaign before, then you will need to re-install this version, as the old version is currently BROKEN.
0400 hours, 20 July 1989 forces of the Soviet Union crossed the border between East and West Germany near the town of Bad Neustadt, West Germany. The attack had been concealed by months of diplomatic maneuvering by the Soviet Union to get the world to believe it was pulling its combat forces out of Germany and promoting unification.
What was in fact happening was a plan to put all of Western Europe under Soviet control. The Warsaw Pact had been getting weaker and NATO was getting stronger. Cracks in the Warsaw Pact nations support for Soviet policies, along with Western economic stability has led Soviet leadership to assume a course of offensive action against NATO.
As the attack develops in the Fulda Gap the Americans are hard pressed to contain the offensive there. The entire operation in the Fulda Gap is a diversion and is intended to simply draw off the reserves and combat effectiveness of the NORTHAG.
Now, it is day two of the apocalypse. 2nd Guards Tank Army, and 3rd Red Banner Army advance to capture Bremen and several other ports along the German coast, and pave the way for Polish forces to seize Denmark. Standing in their way is the lone American 3rd Brigade, 2nd Armor Division...
But this is not the story of the American struggle against the Red Storm, this is the story of the East Germans under 5. Armee who's efforts help make the Soviet victories possible. In the coming days, they will fight a series of battles, some on the offensive, some defensive, and even some as guerillas. Opposing them however are not Americans, or British, but their former countrymen in West Germany. The Third World War pits Brother against Brother, and ensues in a bitter struggle for Victory as the world comes to an end.
Command the elite "9. Panzerdivision" and claim one final German victory, before Germany itself ceases to exist in the four (for now) part campaign, "Brüder Gegen Brüder"!
-Four brand new maps based around: Faßberg, Bad Fallingbostel, Verden, and Vechta
-A new Warsaw Pact nation to choose from: East Germany, on the other side of the Iron Curtain
-Four (for now) challenging scenarios pitting you against everything NORTHAG has to throw at you
-A new campaign to claim victory in.
The Initial release version is, unfortunately, unplayable at the moment. A Stopgap version which for all intents and purposes is the initial release version, can be found here:
