There are 2 versions of the Gates of Vienna VASSAL module. One was created by Art Bennett and the other by Dennis Milbert. Both are available on the final page for download. Play one, or both, the choice is yours!

Gates of Vienna is a two-player game covering the campaign of 1683 in which an Ottoman army besieged that Habsburg capital only to be defeated by a multi-national Christian counterattack. It was the turning point in the centuries-long Habsburg-Turkish wars.

The Gates of Vienna system is based on the CSR award-winning Red Dragon Rising system. Players conduct actions encompassing discrete combat, logistical, intelligence and other operations. Each turn represents a month. During each turn, players take various actions, alternating one at a time with between each other. That smoothly represents the overall pace of operations in the era while giving play a fast tempo.

Each unit repre­sents anything from an individual regiment to an entire “wing” of an army (approximately 1,000 to 10,000 men). Each amp hex represents 12 miles.
