Official page: http://www.matrixgames.com/products/578/details/Tigers.on.the.Hunt


Tigers on the Hunt is a World War 2 hard-core tactical wargame for PC.

It creates a truly and immersive depth tactical simulation.  Tigers on the Hunt boasts a ferocious and adaptive AI which will dynamically respond to a player’s maneuvers. Players can enjoy massive battles across up to 12 connected geomorphic maps with over 200 Infantry units, 100 Support Weapons, 100 Ordnance pieces and 50 Vehicles per side.

The sequence of play is more complex and interactive than any other WW2 turn based PC tactical wargame: game turns are broken down into 16 segments per turn, 8 segments per side and battlefields can range from small to huge in size and complexity, up to 3.8km x 1.6km in size and 200 infantry squads, 50 guns and 50 vehicles per side.

Asid,
  First thought on seeing this is that it's "Squad Leader."  Boards and Counters look like they come from Squad Leader.


Thanks

Features


Three difficulty levels with varying levels of command and control implementation.

A dynamic AI which never reacts the same way twice to a player’s plan. Scenario designers need only designate the AI as an attacker or defender and the game engine will do the rest!

Tigers on the Hunt uses Fog of War; if a unit doesn’t have LOS to any enemy unit(s) it will not be able to see or engage the enemy unit(s). LOS is detailed, down to a pixel level.

Statistics: objectives, casualties, outcome of the scenario.

Create any tactical situation in World War II with a full suite of editors:
a. Map editor

b. OOB Editor

c. Campaign Editor

Battle it out in virtually any engagement on the Western/Eastern/Mediterranean Front using detailed American, German, Russian and British armies.

A massive library of units:
a. All German/Russian/American/British Infantry Units: Squads, Half-Squads, Leaders and Crew


b. 40 Support Weapons (LMG, MMG, HMG, DC, FT, PSK, PF, ATR, PIAT, Molotov Projector, Radio, Bazooka, Light MTR)

c. 95 Ordnance (Mortars, Anti-Tank Guns, Anti-Aircraft Guns, Artillery)

d. 162 Vehicles (Light/Medium/Heavy Tanks, Tank Destroyers, Assault Guns, Armoured Cars, Half-Tracks)

e. 28 Off Board Artillery Pieces including Mortar/Howitzer/Rocket

Use the myriad units in small as well as massive battles which support up to: 200 Infantry units, 100 Support Weapons, 100 Ordnance pieces and 50 Vehicles per side.

Scenario sizes can range from small and intense to massive and grand (up to 97 x 40 hexes)

Campaigns (really just a long scenario) last up to 504 turns - roughly about 2 months of combat (8 turns per day + 4 turns in the night).

Scenario difficulty can be: Easy, Normal and Hard. The difficulty is associated with Command & Control rules. Easy means human player always have command over all its units. Normal difficulty - Normal Command & Control rules are used.

Hard - tougher Command & Control difficulty rules are used.

Scenario/OOB/map editor, maps can be created by painting each hex individually or a whole map can imported by loading templates that come with the game. The scenario editor supports 12 maps put together. 4 maps in a row and 3 maps in a column. You can assign each map to each sector or you can allow the computer to randomly import the map templates to make the overall scenario/campaign map random.

How does the AI compare to Matrix's Steel Panthers World at War and Shrapnel/Camo's SPWW2?
As I remember, the AI when attacking just came straight in towards its objectives (zerg rush).

Hi Con

From what I know the AI is adaptive so will be more of a challenge.

AAR Oosterbeek Perimeter

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3982704

Oosterbeek Perimeter 21 Sept 1944
GB player: AI
GE player: Human
Difficulty: Hard

Herren, battalion commander issued new orders for our company.
The British paratroopers are holding the Nederrijn bridge south of Oosterbeek. Our mission is to secure that bridge and to establish a defensive perimeter north of it.
Securing that bridge will enable our armor forces to cross the Nederrijn and crush the British units located in Oosterbeek.
Battalion commander wants to have lunch in the restaurant near the bridge and nobody will ever dare messing with our commander lunch.
First platoon, supported by the Stugg, will attack east, second and third platoons will move north-east.
First objectives will be the 3 hex building and the patch of wood south of it. This should give us a good starting point to launch our attack on the bridge.
Intel had pinpoint a squad in a small building west of the bridge. They should not be alone, keep your eye open.
Let’s move!

Game Turn Sequence

This is straight from the game manual:

8.1. Appendix A-Sequence of Play
Each scenario has a number of turns played, each turn represents about 2 minutes of actual time. Each game turn is divided into two parts, and each part is comprised of 8 segments. Some segments are done by both the ATTACKER as well as the DEFENDER. Some segments are performed by the ATTACKER only and some by DEFENDER only.

8.1.1. Pre-Game Setup Segment
At the beginning of each scenario, the player will have the ability to place Personnel units/Ordnance/AFV (if available) on the map.

8.1.2. Reinforcement Segment
If there are Reinforcements (Personnel Units/AFVs) due to enter for specific a player turn the Reinforcements Segment will activate, otherwise the game proceeds to Administrative Segment.

8.1.3. Administrative Segment
Administrative segment is split into two parts; first the ATTACKER performs all his actions then the DEFENDER performs all of his actions. In this segment, all broken personnel units will try to recover from their broken state either with or without presence of good order state Leader. Broken support weapons, ordnance and AFVs will be repaired if possible. AFVs will try to recover from shocked state. In addition, new units (if available) will also come on board. Personnel units will also be able to recover not possessed weapons from the ground.

8.1.4. Fire Segment
The ATTACKER performs all fire actions for all his units that are eligible to fire.

8.1.5. Movement Segment
The ATTACKER performs movement actions for all his eligible units (that did not fire in the Fire Segment). The DEFENDER can interrupt ATTACKER’s movement/actions by performing Defensive Fire with his eligible units.

8.1.6. Defensive Fire Segment
The DEFENDER can perform Defensive Fire with his eligible units that did not defensive fired during ATTACKER‘s Movement Segment.

8.1.7. Advancing Fire Segment
The ATTACKER units that moved in Movement Segment may fire in this segment at reduced firepower. However, support weapons, ordnance and AFV may fire only once without Rate of Fire.

8.1.8. Rout Segment
Rout segment is split into two parts; first the ATTACKER performs all his actions then the DEFENDER performs all of his actions. In this segment, the active player’s all broken+ personnel units that are adjacent to good order enemy units as well as all broken+ personnel units in LOS of enemy units in open ground (without any terrain bonus) have to rout away. Failing to do so would eliminate the broken+ personnel units. The broken+ personnel units while they perform move command in open ground terrain hex can be interdicted by the enemy units. No broken+ personnel unit may be interdicted more than once if the broken+ personnel unit suffered casualty from interdiction already in the current segment. A broken+ personnel unit that performs low crawl move (1 hex move) cannot be interdicted by the enemy units at all. A broken+ personnel unit cannot rout towards enemy unit in LOS (or known enemy units – meaning an enemy unit that was seen previously in the current Rout Segment but it is not visible later).

8.1.9. Advance Segment
The ATTACKER may move personnel units by one hex and possibly move into the DEFENDER’s hex - this will then trigger Close Combat Assault and hex will be marked with Close Combat marker.

8.1.9.1. Ambush
When advancing personnel unit moves into a hex with enemy units, an Ambush can possibly occur. An Ambush check is triggered in Woods/Building/Rubble hex.
Once Ambush bonus is determined, the side with the Ambush bonus can possibly influence the outcome of Close Combat.

Note: A stealthy personnel unit can gain a possible advantage in Close Combat.

8.1.10. Close Combat Segment
All hexes marked with Melee marker are resolved first (Melee hex is a close combat assault hex that did not get resolved in in the previous Close Combat Segment); all hexes marked with Close Combat marker are then resolved next.

8.1.11. End of Turn
Once the Close Combat Segment is completed the second part of the turn is executed where the ATTACKER now becomes the DEFENDER and the DEFENDER now becomes the ATTACKER. Example, say on a turn 1, and first part of the turn the ATTACKER is German and the DEFENDER is Russian. In the second part of the turn 1 Russian is now the ATTACKER and the German is now the DEFENDER. Once both parts of the turn are done the game turn is now over and the turn 2 now begins. Once all turns are completed, the scenario is finished.
