The Pegasus Bridge scenario pack for Command Ops 2.
Fight for the Bénouville and Ranville bridges in the invasion of Normandy. Will the Axis hold on to the city of Caen? Pits elements of the 6th Airborne against elements of the 21st Panzer Division. Can you hold the eastern most flank of the Allied invasion? Or will your Panzers break the lines and endanger the whole of Operation Overlord?
Includes three scenarios:
- D Company's coup-de-main:
A platoon based scenario that focuses on the capturing of the bridges and holding them until noon, when the Commando's come in as reinforcements.
- Pegasus Bridge:
A scenario with a slightly wider scope. Focuses on both capturing the bridges and creating a perimeter around them in the surrounding villages. This scenario is company based and runs a bit longer than the coup-de-main scenario.
- Sword to Caen:
The full operation that encompasses all of the drops of the 6th Airborne, 3rd Infantry Division's assault on Sword Beach and the German counter-attack of the whole 21st Panzer Division with the help of the 716th Infantry Division.
