Tank Assault at Singling Scenario Development

Postby 50th » Sat Aug 26, 2017 11:04 pm

Last week I played the "Fire Action at Singling" scenario of Memoir 44. Here is a picture of that scenario set up:

I know that there is already a Tide of Iron scenario covering this battle, but this scenario only used the base game and therefore didn't use Panther tanks or Jagdpanzer IV tank destroyers. I wanted the scenario to be more accurate, so I designed a scenario to be used with the Normandy expansion that gives you Panther tanks, Jagdpanzer IV TD's, and M10 Tank Destroyers. Here is a picture of that map set up so far:

When I played this scenario, the Americans won easily. I will tweak it and play again. I'll show you any changes I made along the way.

I also wanted to add that while the "official" Memoir 44 scenario for this battle uses the winter board and terrain tiles, most of the pictures of this battle I've found don't show snow, except one that says in the caption that it was taken several days after the battle. Here is a picture of several houses at Singling and a manure pile behind the houses (according to the caption).
