Re: Close Terrain

Hills are good for any unit that has 5 Initiative, so it will use all its initiative while the attacker has less than 5 (like most infantry units) or a higher initiative capped down to 5, such as a tank. So the Hills might me good for a 5cm Pak38 ( INI 5) or Pak40 (INI 6); better than other close te...

Re: PROKHOROVKA

You don't have any strategic bomber? I have a Dornier 217E, with 4 stars, A+1 D+2 , overstrenghted to 14. But I rarely deploy it. I used it very often until 1943, that's why he got 4 stars. It's the first time I do the Dornier path. Firstly you do very little damage, but as you get more experience ...

Re: The most annoying terrain in PzC?

Swamp is the worse. Bocage has same handicaps but at least it looks beautiful. I prefer to stuck in a garden than in a swamp. But I remember my first campaigns where I didnt understand/see the bocages, couldn't understant why my units couldnt go in what appeared to be just clear terrain... I had to ...

Re: PROHKOROVKA

The Order of Battle: in this full grand campaign I wanted to rely more on a historical army, so I deployed also in Prohkorovka some units that with 42000 credits you would usually replace, getting only the ultimate armor available, especially I used in the whole Kursk battles 1 Marder III, 1 PzIII a...

PROKHOROVKA

One of the most epic scenario of the game! As I already played it some years ago, in this new campaign I was more confident with my improved skills: It ended up disastrously as I tried to get a DV, which I failed, plus having too many losses. Replayed from - turn 23/27, I stopped the advance and set...

Re: Best Infantry Unit

My preferred inf unit is Grenadier. I also consider ammo for my choices, so I don't like to place them in danger. Since '43 the W.Inf is probably the best unit , also for the +1 ammo, but I don't like to downgrade my Grens. Oleh Dir is Grenadier: 5 hex movement Gren since he got another +1move hero....

Re: Exaggerated AI reinforcements

Playing DLC, you have probably noticed that towards the end of a scenario, in an enemy held town, the AI will start buying units, usually spamming the most expensive unit it can buy. Playing GC42 East, I have just witnessed the AI buying 5 (FIVE!) KV-1 tanks around a town. Fortunately I was able to...

Re: If the German’s had won at the Bulge,,,,,,

The offensive had been taken in the West since there's was the Sea behind the Allies: an offensive in the East could not result in an entrapment. It was a try to delay the advance since it was a matter of time that Germany had "secret weapons". The Allied and Soviets were in a desperate hurry. And t...

Re: Rudel.

I'm in middle of 1943, Prokorovka, and I still haven't got the real Rudel.

He failed the promotion in 1942, and I have only the Recon-Rudel on Me410 (view range 4 )

Will I get it or could I finish the game without him?

Re: Range.

I still find the +1 range on a towed ( 15cm) the best option.
Since in many maps or situations you can't set all your artillery at a range 3 distance, so the one 1 hexe behind can open fire as well, maximizing firepower.

Re: Range.

How do you get so many heroes, is it because of Manstein difficulty level? Heroes come from kills, Manstein has AI with +5 strength units. So yes, with 50% more strength points to kill, you get more kills, more kills more heroes. Thank you. I guessed some Manstein bonus. I'm already letting the AI ...

Re: Range.

The interesting thing about my Manstein playthrough is that I was able to get a ton of heroes for multiple units, over 100 by the start of 45. Because of this, I have experimented a lot with various units. Nebelwerfer's by a great deal are the most effective weapon at getting a 3rd hero. I have two...

Re: Range.

I just got my first +1R hero and have it on a towed 15cm. I'm very tempted to have it on a Niebelwerfer 15cm! when it will become available. Also tempted to have it on a StugIII, but that's ok also without range, until the soviets get too powerful tanks (best thing is to have 2 StugIII together so t...

Re: Custom names?

Is there an editable file somewhere where the custom names I gave my units in my game is located? (Playing a large scenario and I would like to have a list.)

Nothing like a +9 +9 hero with a special acquisition method to keep people discussing it years later. =D That said, I personally didn't turn him into a fighter bomber.
