Re: Next DLC?

Agree, T-34 was better in close combat than Tiger (Sherman was better, too), and this advantage was used in the tactics of Soviet armored units on battlefield (at the company level) This tactics is often called "Borzoi tactics" For example, check out Jean Lopez's book, Tcherkassy-Korsun encirclement...

Re: Next DLC?

Borzoj tactics - If 3 units of the T-34 tanks are on hexes adjacent to the hex, where the Tiger, Tiger II or Panther units are located - the German unit has a reduced "Defense against mechanized" factor by 2 points (price: 10 SPs) Tactics used on the battlefield by T-34 crews in clashes with Tigers...

Re: Next DLC?

The problem with the unreliable trait is that it is too severe and make me avoid the units altogether. No matter how many other options I might have (and not all are viable) I still have one less and by definition limited diversity. What's your problem, man? ...order of battle/Order of Battle - WW_...

Re: Next DLC?

Oh, and I totally agree that the unreliable trait is a bad thing. I never buy units with this trait and it just ends up hurting my diversity options. Ok, but this unreliable thing is very little in OoB (Tiger H and Panther D in few missions or Sherman with reinforced armor) I need this trait mainly...

Re: Next DLC?

While playing Sandstorm in the last scenarios, I've noticed how utterly useless my single Tiger H was, being constantly below 5 efficiency. My other Panzer 4's did a much better job meanwhile. I don't mind the 50% chance to trigger that effect but 1 eff-point loss is really enough. Because Pz IV wa...

Re: Next DLC?

This is IS-2 (or properly IS-122) heavy tank, not T-34
Immobilized by Tiger or Nashorn at Chotymyr, western Ukraine 30 April 1944 then transported to the Reich and subjected to tests (hence the inscription "OKW" made with white paint on the turret)

Re: Next DLC?

Deep Operation so broken bro, nearly ignore supply mechanic. That cost (20) is high enough if SP gained as low as japanese campaigns (3-4 per scenario, while german campaign easy gets more than 5) Maskirovka's unique, but it intercedes to efficiency mechanic directly, which may causes some trouble ...

Re: Next DLC?

I've been following most of the "unreliable" discussions, and although there were many points mentioned that would confirm a general lack of reliability of the engines used during the time, please don't overuse it. This is just my opinion, but one or two units per nation's roster should get it at t...

Re: Next DLC?

So you didn't like German GC - Blitzkrieg, Panzerkrieg and Endsieg? Here, every scenario was a big operation, so you were bored with it I suppose :twisted: I understand that Sandstorm is more suited to you, with these mini-scenarios, for example naval convoy battle or air attack on Allied trucks?

Re: Next DLC?

Propaganda do not write ... useless ... Example - in the Kiev operation 800.000 soldiers of the Red Army died in 1943, and the Germans lost ... 13.000 soldiers, the Ukrainian archives are open and counted, and the Russian archives of World War II are classified until 2040, and archives NKVD until 2...

Re: Order of Battle: World War II - v7.1.8 is available

If you're saying a lot of tanks are going to be reduced to useless junk by the unreliability trait, yes I'm sulking and pouting a little bit because nothing in all my WW2 reading (my bookshelf below) suggests that tanks broke down to such a severe extent as they do in OOB, so I'm beginning to wonde...

Re: Current Bugs - Version 7.1.8

Erik, it seems to me that these models simply look a bit better than others, but look at the Pz III turrets, they are deformed from the front.
StuG doesn't have a cannon and the reconnaissance car has no MG and turret is deformed, too.

Re: Order of Battle: World War II - v7.1.8 is available

Kondi, you are absolutely correct and the quoted text is a fine read. But it is important to remember that it was not just German armor that suffered from mechanical unreliability. I believe the KV series tanks and early T-34's should also carry this unreliable trait as detailed numerous times thro...

Unreliable trait - has it been repaired? back to an earlier version? Viewing the list that I just posted, you may be in for a pleasant surprise . . .

Re: Catch-22 new TV series

I'd prefer more flying than talking but let's see later. You know, it's based on the famous book, dialogues should be the strongest point First of all, it was an anti-war novel and a movie, where war is just a background, but despite that there were already several combat missions and quite a succe...
