Stalingrad Docks https://i.imgur.com/NtFt450.png https://i.imgur.com/2kXnQpG.png https://i.imgur.com/LUzVDXw.png Very hard scenario but a bit easier than the last one. My approach was mostly conventional except for using my entire contingent of veteran Fallschirmjäger in the north. Three were dropp...

WOWZERS! You did it, I could not do it. This battle must have been epic, if you could send me the raw footage of this scenario I would love to watch it.

Storming Stalingrad https://i.imgur.com/zi6u2Li.jpg https://i.imgur.com/8NSQumB.jpg Extremely difficult, no surprise there. Suffered two brutal late-scenario restarts after losing a veteran core unit. The SMG infantry littering the city is strong enough to attack many of my veteran infantry even wi...

Buzinovka Depot https://i.imgur.com/a9ebxEK.jpg https://i.imgur.com/zTVPaZF.png Pretty easy one, as the bonus mission typically are. There are two KV-5 tanks that are strong enough to hit any of my tanks profitably. They are also guarded by AA so taking a hit from them is inevitable. https://i.imgu...

Re: Grand Campaign West & East 39-45 (Manstein)

I will be curious on how you handle the Stalingrad scenario's themselves...are you going for a Decisive? Yes! Storming will be the hardest I reckon. I think the key is to bypass the Gumrak suburb as well as the bottom third of the map. Docks will be very fun as you can drop airborne on turn one in ...

Novanninsky https://i.imgur.com/c5BvPlC.jpg https://i.imgur.com/yPHZZDk.jpg Medium difficulty scenario. The hardest part is the armored counter-attack close to the beginning with strong tanks and two mobile AA guns making things difficult. It's led by a named KV-1C at 20 health and 3-stars, a very ...

Voronezh Prestige: 54929 with 61 units Soft Cap: 100% https://i.imgur.com/YJoQNQF.jpg Huge map with very tight time restrictions, thankfully the enemy force is weaker per unit than in all the previous scenarios in this campaign due to low experience.

Re: Recon Units / Modifications

I agree that recon could use a boost in usefulness. #2 sounds good but I can see it being frustrating as a player, being spotted without knowing why. Also easily exploitable by laying ambushes or interrupting enemy movements. These can be partially alleviated by enemy recons not affected. My proposa...

I just love tapping units hard with an 88 after I suppress them...so fun to hear that sound effect. There really is not enough said about the great sound effects that were put in this game.

Sevastopol Siege Prestige: 53991 with 60 units Soft Cap: 100% https://i.imgur.com/0NAS76T.jpg Relatively easy one, provided you proceed with caution before hitting the southern coast. Bring recon and only hit Alushta in full force when all your units are ready. There's also powerful armor to the so...

Re: What beats Tiger II?

+1 on using a strategic bomber then following up with attacks from your soft targets to fully deplete its ammo.

It's the simple, brute force way that's guaranteed to work. Luring it into close defense terrain is ideal however it's often not an option.

I did not perform my due diligence, and was seriously disappointed with the Grand Campaign. All downhill on every track.
Did you look at Grand Campaign West?

That what-if victory branch for the final half of '45 is aggressive while being somewhat plausible. The perfect balance imo.

Re: Replacing core units for 1st scenario of campaign (Poland)

While this is relatively easy amongst the DLCs (adjusting the GUID in campaign.pzdat), doing this in the vanilla campaign or "big" expansions (Afrika Korps, Allied Corps, Soviet Corps) requires manually adding the units in the scenario editor for the first scenario, which is a lot of work, as there ...

Von Rundstedt sounds extremely interesting, it's a great test on who has the best vision for the optimal core. The hero variance would be brutal tho even coming from an experience level guy.
