Nemesis: Raid on Drvar
takes the players into one of the most unusual airborne operations of World War II: the ambitious Axis air assault to neutralize the Yugoslav partisan leader Tito in the spring of 1944.Unternehmen Rösselsprung
- Operation Knight’s Move - was Nazi Germany’s daring paratroop raid, deep inside the partisan-controlled territory, to deliver a stunning coup de main strike. Instead of a checkmate, Tito and his guerilla forces resisted the elite SS paratroopers and mountain soldiers and Croatian ground troops successfully.Nemesis: Raid on Drvar
features two brand-new battlegroups, meticulously researched and modeled in Steel Division 2
. A host of unique new units await to be commanded in solo, coop, or multiplayer.
Unternehmen RösselsprungNemesis: Raid on Drvar
gives you the combined Axis battlegroup named after the German operation itself: Unternehmen Rösselsprung
make up the core of this formation. The fanatical SS-Fallschirmjäger
paratroopers and the elite Brandenburg
special forces can also be deployed. The Independent State of Croatia (NHD) - a fascist puppet state - is represented with Legionäre
militia, and Ustache
irregulars, as well as Serbian Chetniks
royalists and Cossak
pioneers. Heavy units are few and far in between, with armor support being relegated to old Italian L6/40
, and French R-35
tanks. In the skies above, the Croatian Air Force provides top cover with its arsenal of light and older planes, such as the BH-33E-SHS
biplane, pre-war Yugoslav IK-2
fighter, or Italian-made Ca.310bis Libeccio
recon bomber.Unternehmen Rösselsprung
is a battlegroup that excels in close combat against enemy infantry forces.
NOV (Narodnooslobodilačka Vojska)
Collected under the banner of Narodnooslobodilačka Vojska (NOV
]), the combined Yugoslav partisan forces were commanded by the charismatic leader Josip Broz “Tito”. This communist-led army was considered one of the most effective anti-Axis resistance movements in Europe. During Operation Rösselsprung
troops resisted the airborne SS paratroopers fiercely. NOV
soldiers - as a whole featuring the Raider
trait - are equipped mostly with captured German and Italian arms, while SOE
special forces instructors provide some extra firepower. The battlegroup can also count on heavier weapons, including captured Elefantino 47mm
, Pak 50mm
and 75mm AT
guns. A ton of mortars, as well as Italian 75mm
mountain guns provide much-needed artillery support. A handful of outdated armor is available, such as Italian L6/40
and French R-35
tanks, and even the diminutive CV-33
tankettes. The multinational RAF Balkan Air Force
provides heavy air cover, fielding the deadly Hurricane Mk.IV
tank killer with its twin 40mm guns.
