Mod «Scenario: Stalingrad» for Hearts of Iron 4 (v1.12.5)

Scenario: Stalingrad

Welcome to my biggest mod to date, the Battle of Stalingrad. This mod is unique in that it puts you in charge either 6th Army or the Stalingrad Front in the Stalingrad area. The mod focuses solely on this region, with a map covering roughly the equivalent of the Stalingrad state in vanilla HOI4. Because the map is zoomed so much, a number of changes have been made to the game. These include:

  • Divisions have now been split into regiments and battalions
  • Rivers are technically classed as 'ocean' (as per Vanilla standards). Adjacencies are used as crossing-points. Guard them well!
  • Movement speed is increased to match the zoomed map. Watch for encirclements!
  • Aircraft range is increased. Your planes will now cover the entire map with range.
  • Supply lines have had their range increased (This is because I have placed historical railways into the game which somewhat limit supply).
  • Focuses are shortened, and the game is designed to last until (roughly) from July 1942 to spring 1943.
  • Game speed is greatly reduced, allowing you to manage the battle hour by hour (and practically minute by minute)

Other features of this mod include:

  • Historical railways as per maps of the Stalingrad area
  • Historical OOBs and leaders
  • Over a hundred events documenting the story of the Battle of Stalingrad
  • Focus trees with both historical and alt-historical elements
  • A selection of music for Germany and the USSR designed to enhance immersion.
  • A map designed with real-world sattelite imagery, as well as historical maps of the Stalingrad area.
  • References to popular culture depictions of Stalingrad (namely, COD:WAW, Enemy at the Gates and Stalingrad (1993) film.)

And lots more changes - discover for yourself!

  • Update to game version 1.12.5
