JP's Panzers Challenge Campaign # 3

Craig Miller's


1. Campaign Synopsis

Designer - Craig Miller

This campaign follows the original standard SSI Blitzkrieg campaign up to the scenario Klin in Russia. It is assumed that after such a Victory the arrival of fresh Soviet troops from Siberia would force the Germans to evacuate Moscow. The campaign then continues with a German drive into Southern Russia in the Spring of 1942. The additional scenarios are meant to be plausible, if not historic. Particularly the campaign switches between fronts more rapidly than might have been realistic.

The player must get a Normal Victory at Klin to invoke the new expanded campaign.


2. The Challenge!:

You must complete the campaign with Adlerkorps' equipment file (Europe upgrade for PG2 V2.1 / or newer) within the rules as established for Challenge Campaigns:

a. Play with the same equipment file to the end, unless there are gross errors, in which case, we will announce it.
b. Report your progress using the Formal report format or you may also report using an Informal format (for both formats, see below).
c. Field Marshal and General Challenges - players may not re-load during a scenario or during a turn. In the spirit of the challenge: I urge players to refrain from re-loading, however, it is acceptable to re-start a scenario.

Prestige levels for CC3:
Field Marshal's Challenge - 30% prestige
General's Challenge - 50% prestige
Officer's Challenge - 75% prestige
NCO's Challenge - 90% prestige
Troopie's Challenge - 100% plus prestige
