Combat Mission Battle For Normandy 20 Cracked [BETTER]

I readily admit to being a fan of Combat Mission, but why bother getting more than the core game with the v2.0 upgrade If you are interested in the Market Garden campaign there are very good reasons to get this expansion. Market Garden is a substantial improvement to the core game. It adds a considerable amount of new combat formations, equipment, campaigns, scenarios and quick battle maps. It also adds some new terrain including several new Dutch style urban buildings, a windmill, a footpath, more generic and four historical bridges. Some of the bridges are quite massive structures, like the Arnhem and Nijmegen bridges, so are quite different from the smaller bridges seen previously in the Combat Mission games.
I lost about 50 men, including most of the engineers on that bridge the first time I played it. Had about 200 casualties in all afterwards although I drew the battle, because I managed to get the remnants of a platoon over the bridge before sunrise. I think pace and surprise are vital in this mission. I ended up leaving some of my platoons hidden at the starting point due to the fact they got hit by accurate artillery as soon as they showed themselves. I lost a lot of men that way. I think I've had one loss, and two draws so far. Not sure I fancy another go :-)
There are no exact figures regarding German tank losses in Normandy. Approximately 2,300 tanks and assault guns were committed to the battle,[k] of which only 100 to 120 crossed the Seine at the end of the campaign. While German forces reported only 481 tanks destroyed between D-day and 31 July, research conducted by No. 2 Operational Research Section of 21st Army Group indicates that the Allies destroyed around 550 tanks in June and July and another 500 in August, for a total of 1,050 tanks destroyed, including 100 destroyed by aircraft. Luftwaffe losses amounted to 2,127 aircraft. By the end of the Normandy campaign, 55 German divisions (42 infantry and 13 panzer) had been rendered combat ineffective; seven of these were disbanded. By September, OB West had only 13 infantry divisions, 3 panzer divisions, and 2 panzer brigades rated as combat effective.
Donald O. Jones, the son of Harry H. and Lunda (Smith) Jones, was born in Macon, Georgia on December 16, 1922. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps on January 1, 1942 in Tampa, Florida. After basic training, Don went to Scott Field Air Base, Illinois where he attended the radio operator/mechanics school. He applied for aviation cadet training and was accepted. This took him to Maxwell Air Base, Alabama for pre-flight training, then to Douglas, Georgia for primary; Greenwood, Mississippi for basic flying school, and his advanced training was at George Field, Lawrenceville, Illinois. It was there that he graduated as a pilot in Class 43E on May 28, 1943 and received the 2nd Lieutenant commission and wings. In July 1943 he proceeded to Smyrna, Tennessee for transitional training for heavy bomber (B-24 Liberator) flying; then to Clovis, New Mexico where he took his first combat flight training.
But Stewart didn't just win a war and then go home to play pretend for the rest of his life. No, he remained in the Air Force Reserve for an additional 22 years, worked on a military base during the Korean War, and even flew a non-combat mission in Vietnam. By the time Stewart finally retired, he had reached the rank of Brigadier (one-star) General. Ironically, he only appeared in a couple of war movies (The Mountain Road and Malaya) as he claimed they were "almost never realistic." Also, let's face it: After conquering the military for real, merely pretending to do so would've been too damn boring.
A VF-84 F-14 from NAS Oceana, VA, crashed in Currituck Sound, NC, after receiving indications of an onboard fire when returning from a routine air combat training mission. LT. Jeffry Daus was picked up from land by local authorities and LCDR. Kevin Wensig was rescued by a fishing boat from Curritu
