A CC mod Winter War was created for CC5 which concentrated on the Southern front, NW of Leningrad, where the heaviest troop concentrations were.

This mod is still available on the Close Combat Series website; http://www.closecombatseries.net/CCS/index.php in the Downloads / Close Combat 5 Mods.

BACKGROUND:

The original Winter War mod was made for CC4 by Luer and moloch in 2001.
Then the mod was converted and substantially updated for CC5 by Kartboy6, PzEddiea and the rest of the mod team. Their final version was v1.3 released in 2004.

Since I have always liked the mod I have converted/moved to TLD

CHANGES IN V2.0 for TLD Nov. 30/2020:
1) Ported mod data/graphics from CC5 to TLD adding the following TLD features;
- added historical weather
       - added night battles based on how cold/warm the weather was. They mainly occur early and late in the GC.
- adjusted air, artillery and mortar support based on level (Recruit = most, Elite = least )
- enabled BG retreat feature
       - enabled surprise so the Axis/Finish player can not move the 1st turn
       - fixed ammo count (AlsTeams, AxsTeams & Soldiers)
       - fixed best kill and best mount (Vehicles)
       - fixed single battle start random crash, it was due to random wreck selection and not every vehicle had wrecks (Vehicles)
       - fixed map coding as building walls were not solid *** still a few maps to go but wanted it released today ***
       - Recreated Battles/Operations/Campaigns in TLD editor
2) Changed Finish Artillery/Naval support from 0 quantity and made it available for select maps due to Finish coastal batteries
3) Changed Russian Artillery/Naval support to be available on all maps
4) Changed soldier graphic file to get smaller soldiers (closer to the map and vehicle scale)
5) Changed (US) circled star to only a star for Russian BG info icon
6) Change Naval Support icon to Artillery
7) Created a Winter War icon file
8) Changed Heavy Snow so it can be crushed to Light Snow
9) Recreated all the map OVM and MMM (zoomed out) files with trees

"Winter war" is surely a "must-have" mod. I especially like the fact, Fins have limited ammo and you have to make sure that every bullet must find its target as you get closer to the end of the game:)

Agreed. I was shocked the first time I had a Finish squad with no weapons and had to run them to spot where there were dead troops so they could pick up weapons....

Tejszd., as the "Fabulous Fighting Finns," I keep being allotted artillery, but I can't get it to attach to my units so as to be able to make use of it. Sure could use it on those Russian tanks.

The Finish army had little artillery support of its own (either due limited ammo and or guns) and relied a lot on guns emplacements along the shoreline so I limited the number of maps that can have artillery support to those close to them. I'll double check the gun range compared to the strat map as maybe I should have done more than just a couple maps radius from them.

No, I don't think I used anything that requires but I do recommend to get the UI scaling options. Just make sure you copy the CC5 sub-directory as they did not include it in the new full installation (probably due to their deal to let GOG sell CC5).

The map have some errors. There was at least one more coastal batteries - Tiurinsaari fort, which complemented Bjorke/Saarenpaa, Jariseva battery has only one 120mm cannon installed at time of war. BTW, there is great map of Finland gulf fortifications with photos - http://www.nortfort.ru/index_e.html
