A recreation of the original CM:BO release disc mission by Wild Bill Wilder, depicting the attack of Michael Wittman at Villers Bocage on 13 June 1944. A considerably different challenge than the later historical scenario offered for CM:BN, or even the CM:BO Operation which was more closely tied to the actual event. This battle retains the fictionalized map of the original, based on the 20-metre terrain grid of the CMX1 game engine. Visually the same map, but veteran players will quickly realize that cover and LOS values are not the same in CM:X2; vehicles can drive where they could not in the original, etc. The basic thrust of the scenario remains the same nonetheless; a small but veteran force of heavy German armour takes on a larger British armoured force for possession of the town of Villers Bocage.
