Here are some answers to your questions.
The map will have sort of a semi push. It will prevent backcapping but still give you the opportunity to develop many different tactics for your attack.
The three flags marked CP are neutral controlppoints at the start of the round.
The size of the map actually is only one quater of El Alamein. But most the terrain is used and the map therefor feels quite big. Distances between cp's are also walkable on foot, just like on the old map.
The Luftwaffe 88's will be in the churchyard if germans manage to set up their def3nces in Cagny in time.
The G43 is only available as pickup kit because it wasn't used in big numbers.

So the German flags won't be capable until Brits own the 3 CP's, right?  :)

@Mudra: I was more talking about the units that took part. :P

this was my favourtie fh 1 map good layout i mean it showed the power and range of the axis tanks i always seemed to get hit before i even saw the enemy, i always used the cromwell or churchill lower profile, never ever the sherman as they were always hit first, cromwells were the secret weapon as they were low and could hide and had the same gun as the sherman 75mm , the velosity was slightly better or equal and was the fastest UK tank of the war with a top speed ungoverned of 40 mph, outflank to win.

Awesome update, I can imagine Goodwood will be an epic fight!

Some other scenario can have flying gliders though, for sure!  :)

Merville Battery perhaps....  ::)

So on which map are we going to find that Glider gentleman?  :D
Well, I'd imagine that the obvious answer would be one named after a mythical flying horse.

They used other kind of gliders for the Pegasus bridge operation right?

Great update, the quality of this work always amaze me :D

Question to everyone : minus Pegasus bridge, where were gliders landings planned on D-Day (and so, where can we expect to see a flyable Horsa) ?

Me and my Kübel will take care of quick capping that base.
