Actually, it´s not that hard to do. Well the defending alone is rather hard but the trick works like this:

I recommend first having Garand, since it´s accurate and suitable for short-med ranges, and Bazooka with two rockets if possible. Oh and if I am not 100% wrong, go to talk that medic inside the main building so you can now command him. So you get a free ally here. Try to give some sort of gun to him since he can be used to watch out specific direction or as a medic.
Second, right after you report the radio that begins the attack, man the first MG42 nest facing southwest.

Now, when you see something moving just start shooting. It should not be that hard to see in the dark. Now get ready since some enemies might have made inside the courtyard, usually comes first from northeast entrance and then western entrance. Eliminate them, it shouldn´t be so hard.

Now there should come halftrack from southwest area and soon starts moving towards south and from there to the western entrance. Take it out with a Bazooka. If you miss, get ready to meet the halftrack and some soldiers.

After that, one Tiger tank should be watching in the southeast area. Now I recommend saving and grab one Bazooka inside the main building if you´re out of rockets. Now sneak behind the Tiger, aim to the large "A" painted behind the turret and launch. It should be destroyed from one hit and after that - mission completed.


Main trick is that you need to keep moving and stay aware what´s going on. It´s not really that hard.

PS: If I remember right, it´s not entire division. More like troops from that specific division, as mentioned in the briefing (if I am not 100% wrong again)

Oldih...WOW!   :grin:

Is you sure that you can get the mechanic to join in???   grin01

Even now your EASY sounds pretty hard to me buddy!     I shall give it a try none the less.  smile01

I did on my first couple of tries get the bazooka and I manned the corner broken down turret, (I had a lot of success from here when I had the rest of the guys with me) on my own I had not much chance, as I saw two of the enemy sneak past and they came behind me. The enemy just came from everywhere!

Have you done it single handed then bro??  :wink:

I have, it´s not really that hard when you just practice around and if neede just play tricky.

Like once in very hard I had to hide in the main building of the Oasis\Complex for like 10 minutes before trying to do something as I had to figure out some sort of ambush point.

And it´s not the mechanic you get. In previous mission (before the night standoff) there was a medic inside the main building if I am not 100% wrong.

Now go to the main building ( = the one where´s the radio to "start" the attack) and check the "main hall". You should see this medic there, talk to him and you have free soldier under your command if I am not 100% wrong again. Just remember to give him some sort of weapon, otherwise he gets killed rather easily.

It may take few tries, and it took hell of a tries back when I played it on very hard, so in other words it´s rather easy but tricky.

Best way I can think of to do this mission alone is to use mines and the southeast facing MG42. Take some time before you call on the radio, use every mine you can get your hands on.

Bear in mind there's a truck with a few Germans that comes before the main offensive, before you've used the radio. By the time you've placed the mines around the western gate, they will probably be approaching the oasis. You can shoot them in their truck from the southeastern MG, but otherwise they'll be coming in through the western entrance (I think). Might want to deal with them before you start laying mines.

Lay mines just outside the western wall - the barbed wire forces the enemies coming in here to go through a small opening. Put a few mines on the left side (your left side as you come out of the oasis through the large entrance) in the narrow gap in the barbed wire. Then put one or two in the entrance to the main gate.

With any mines you've got left, put them just outside the south wall - in the entryway.

Now go and use the radio, then run up to the southeastern MG42 position and wait for the main attack. Just the MG42 should be enough to deal with most of them - fire at them early, you can get a few of them when they're still in their truck. Don't fire when there's a tank close - normally it's blind and stupid and won't fire at you, but if you're blazing away on the MG at the wrong time then you'll get blown up. Once the tank stops in position you can fire again.

Once you've done with the infantry, get a bazooka and run outside the southeastern exit, get round the back of the tank outside the east wall and hit it in the back with the bazooka - normally it's not too tough, keep prone and you should be fine.

YAHOO!

Well that did it lads!  I riddled the area with mines and bombs..particularly leading up to the corner where the Bren Gun is.

Image


This is a shot with the gun behind me.

Image

This is further down.

Image

Sucess even further out and the tank?

Image

Well I found it further out at the corner you can see from the gun.   It was stationary, as yo can see so I just.....

Image

BLEW IT UP!

Image

That did the trick, so the mission CAN be done single handed if you use the mines.   :grin:   :grin:

I have to say guys, that I didn't find the medic back in the building where the radio was.  There was a cot there but no sign of him, so I had to proceed alone here!  (Story of my life!)   funny01

MUST SAY THANKS TO YOU GUYS HERE!   ;)

it could be possible that it is "disabled" from lone wolf mode but atleast in normal he should be around there.

It is not very realistic for you to have that weapon in 1942!

Yeh, I agree with ya buddy..but giving ONE GUY the mission to hold a post against several PLATOONS of men PLUS a tank ain't realistic either mate...eh?  :shock:  :shock:

Now had this been a 'stealth' mission it would have been a different story and a better mission IMHO.

But then the game makers wouldn't have saved all that money just dishing out the same scenario with slightly different adaptations bud!  Bloody cheek I calls it!  no_03    no_03

Well every game has more or less stuff which is more or less realistic.

H&D2 has general quality quite good, but there are some small weird stuff around ;)

If you kill him in the mission before, he will not appear.
