Master of Battle: Rommel Available at Run5

Postby JSS » Tue Oct 12, 2004 1:06 am

Go to the Run5 user scenarios section at for a free download of the BIN version Rommel Battle. Battle includes all functions (AI, unknown units, etc...) but is primarily designed for PBEM. Here are a few design notes:

BIN Master of Battle I: Rommel expands on the KP version of the battle by incorporating numerous new features available in the new game engine.

- Late arriving formations are modeled by having timed replacements as German units enter the battle.

- Movement requires planning to ensure mechanized forces will be in supply during the next turn(s)... Use of refit at times will be critical to sustain offensive operations.

- German player has minefields & strongpoints to help hold the bridge until sufficient forces are available to attack.

- Air interdiction & anti-air units play a critical role. Delayed supply to a critical sector can have a significant impact.

- German player has an MP regiment & a security regiment that provide anti-partisan coverage. Their placement can also make a big difference.

These are only a few of the changes in place.
