The war began early on August 2, 1989. By mid morning the 10th Guards Tank Division had brushed aside the British screening force along the Inner German Border. The division ordered the 63rd Guards Tank Regiment to attack south of Bad Salzgitter to clear elements from the British 11th Armoured Brigdae.

Suspected British positions.

The division emplaced SA-8's on the high ground it had just occupied. The mobile SAM's begin engaging radar detected helicopters, probably scouts attempting to locate the advancing Soviet armor.

A battery of 2S1's were attached to the regiment, and ordered forward to provide immediate support to the advanced guard.

The regiment also was allocated a significant number of aircraft to support its assault.

Good ground for battle. How's units behaving on the step-wise roads? For my map, I'm mostly linearizing roads with angles other than 0, 45, and 90 degree, mix of straight and 45 degree line. But your map design with step roads looks good as well.

It’s very interesting terrain. The aI placed some infantry in a location I didn’t anticipate, and I’m currently trying to bring through them with the remainder of my advanced guard. If I can clear them I can unleash two tank battalions in the flat ground where the actual objectives lie.


I don’t believe they impact movement any differently then “diagonal” roads. In reality they all are steps, it’s just the terrain files show “diagonals”. The other thing to remember is the units don’t move grid to grid like in a hex based game, they actually move across the ground meter by meter.

A minute later, the same SU-17 moments before it crashed - engaged by some sort of anti-aircraft fire before releasing its ordnance.

A smokescreen is placed along the eastern edge of Dorten to obscure the area where the regiment's second echelon was assembling after moving along the narrow forest roads. (It would not be sufficient enough, and British artillery would shortly after begin crashing down on the Soviet tanks forcing the assault to commence early.)

Two destroyed Soviet T-80's can be seen in the field east of Dorten, victims of British artillery.

As suspected, British forces occupied defensive positions along the eastern bank of the Innerste River.
