battle scenario

battle scenario

I made this battle scenario with the mission editor. It is a kind of prototype multiplayer map for planes and tanks. It is a concept of closer proximity airfields, targets and also tank spawns. The tanks fight under an umbrella of protective AAA.

It features four airfields, and two tank battles. The distance between the two outer airfields is around 90km. This distance is 11 minutes at 500KMH. Flying in from an outer airfield to the center of action is around 5 minutes and from an inner airfield you are talking 1 or 2 minutes. Same as usual destroy all your ground targets before the opposing side does and your side will win the map.planes and tanks

Achen to Asbach 90km

Achen to Asbach battle tanks

The two towns in the center of action have flak AAA and tanks. The focus is on closer proximity. The tanks would fight in the town and in the surrounding forest and farm lands.

There would be some ground targets added to the towns and the area of the four airfields.
