1-05-20.Welcome to a new decade of myassaultpage.com. In the coming year, I hope to complete the Middle East saga; expand the new Neutral Countries, new maps along with the usual tweeking plus some fan submitted pages. Thank you for your support over these last 7 years and I hope we will have more to share. Who knows, maybe even the Space Force!
1-06-20. We added the 1973 Israeli Air Force, Egyptian Air Force and the Egyptian 3rd Army. For those of you wanting to do a combined Campaign series of the Yom Kippur War, the Israeli Air Force simulated is the entire force available for the Egyptian and Syrian fronts. I believe that I am going to upload the complete forces for the 1970, 1967 and 1956 campaigns then add the scenarios later. That way it's out there and you can develop your own scenarios. Sometime this year, I intend to update the French Army in NATO to reflect a more realistic look, plus correct some oversights. I want to push out more material this year than last. My goal is at least one new update per month and more scenarios. I also want to finish the Lithuanian Incident in 21st Century section. If anyone out there has requests please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
7-12-20. Finally the Golan Heights 1973 is ready. There are 10 new maps for the Golan with several more to come at a later date. I think I have gotten just about every combat unit and country that participated or potentially could have participated in the fighting. There are also new charts for Combat Results Table (conventional and indirect fire), new movement charts and new anti-armor charts. I also have updated the Israeli direct fire data charts to reflect the actual ammunition available. No scenarios this time. I relied a lot on Avigdor Kahalani's books The Heights of Courage and A Warrior's Way in addition Frank Chadwick's Armies of October and Chaim Herzog's The War of Atonement. These books are excellent reading and references. I also provided a copy of the Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA) Assessment of the Weapons and Tactics of the Yom Kippur War that contains a wealth of knowledge on the weapon systems of the Yom Kippur War. There may be some tweeking to the material as this is a LARGE upload. I have a map to add created by superfan Ulf Krahn as soon as I resolve some download issues on my end. More to come. ENJOY!!
7-14-20. Little extra.. I added the Belarus Army to the 21st Century Assault. I also provided an updated Anti-armor table, CRT and Low Light rules and Tables for Middle East Assault. Started some preliminary draft artwork on the 21st Century Ukrainian Army today. We'll see how that goes. I have also been pouring over the Hezrog book and Kahalani's work to put together a couple of Golan scenarios. Kahalani also has some good descriptions of the 1967 battles around El Arish ... M48A2s vs T-34s etc.. Still working on some more Golan maps and may delve back into some more Lithuanian topography.. Enjoy!!
7-19-20. After several updates that were not announced, I have decided to drop a line here. I have added Portugal to the offical NATO lineup. I have also provided Advanced Armor Spreadsheets for all armies and armored units. These spreadsheets contain the armor type modifier values for the hit confirmation die rolls. I also included the armor type, base armor values, and for those of you using Advanced Assault, the ERA and special spotting modifiers (Shtora). The Unit Data Cards have NOT been updated so the spreadsheets contain the most accurate information. I also have added a super-fan map from Ulf that looks very interesting. He also has some counters that I am trying to get him to let me publish that look awesome. The Soviet Fire Charts have all been upgraded and the Indirect Fire Charts now have the minimum ranges for artillery. More to come....ENJOY!!!
12-16-20. Finally completed the East German redo. Eventually all the Warsaw Pact will be redone in this style with the associated country color bar on the upper portion. The T-72 tanks listed as T-72M are actually the Czech T-72M1 version. The fire charts have been updated to account for some equipment changes that I have found. The current version of the Landstreitkräfte der Nationalen Volksarmee modeled here is the most accurate representation that I could produce. There are also other updates added since July throughout the site but I failed to list them and don't remember what they were so there are little surprises here and there. ENJOY!!!
