A Thousand Tanks
The Battle of Hannut, 12-14 May 1940

When the German XVI Armeekorps found its way blocked by the French Corps de Cavalerie two days after they crossed the Belgian border, the scene was set for the biggest armoured battle of the campaign. With over a thousand tanks between the opposing corps, the fight was similar in scale to the epic battle between the 2nd SS Panzer Corps and the Soviet 5th Guards Tank Army at Kursk three years later.
In Wargames Illustrated 276 we looked at the Battle of Hannut and how to replay this using Flames of War. We knew that there were a few hard core Flames of War players out there that would want to go and refight this (just like us) so we thought we would make it easy for people to get hold of the armies.
