Re: Favorite Artillery unit

Question: is the Defence Hero helping when the arty unit is hit by another artillery?
I know it works vs ground units and air units.

Re: Disbanding Transports & Losing Transports

Thank You, I didn't know it! I see 100% in any saved game I loaded to look at it... Tried to deploy maximum expensive core army and finally went under, to 88% Deploying Alterberger bonus Gebirge WITH transport the Soft Cap = 81 Without transport = 84 So the transport isn't SE... News is that I have ...

Re: Favorite Artillery unit

Yep, counter-battery can be a real pain in some scenarios. I really always try to avoid it, although with the many defense-heroes I have on my arties ( sigh ) I will lose some strenght nonetheless, I saw that also a 4-strenght enemy arty can rip off -1 strenght to my arty.

I don't know how to see the Soft Cap... I believe you can do the experiment too : )

Re: Favorite Artillery unit

Wurfrahmen ... hands down. +1 Range and +3 Attack is my favorite hero pairing. It should be part of a combined-arms formation though. Needs a plane and AAA right behind it. It is nectar to the AI bomber's bee. Used everything else, and like many. Wurfs are not a mainstay weapon, but they are the Di...

Re: Soft Cap

https://i.imgur.com/HqQ4ycs.jpg I see that this Bonus ( from GC '43 - Orel scenario) Gebirge ( non-SE) has SE Transport: the unit has the normal icon / uniform's colors while the halftrack has the mimetic SE does that mean that the transport isn't counted in the Soft Cap ? I need to know it, becaus...

the unit has the normal icon / uniform's colors
while the halftrack has the mimetic SE

does that mean that the transport isn't counted in the Soft Cap ?

Re: Soft Cap

Can you explain how the Soft Cap reacts as you increase, in the difficulty setup window, the Overstrenght number? I.e. if I raise it to 12, Soft Cap will have to consider a different total prestige to cap ? The difficulty window has no effect. The total cost of the core units on the map is divided ...

Re: Favorite Artillery unit

It's not always optimal a couple of StuGs: when attacking both, one may have to go into a forest, then you could suffer a lot of damage, even losing it.
And risking your best hero-units it's not very nice.

Re: GC Elite units and Rudel - short questions

I would like him with a second hero too, I will deploy him much more then. I quote who previously asked for an Air Recon mode: We could do it without creating a specific class. Giving to some airplanes the chance of a swithing mode, like do AA / AT, and AT / Arty, we could have a Recon choice where ...

Re: Favorite Artillery unit

I like very much the +1 range artilley because one of my first goals is to destroy enemy AA, so I can kill/suppress them in the distance and finish them with a Me410 or a Stuka. So I'm eventually free to use my air force safely.

Re: Soft Cap

I downgraded my "Doppler" +1mov 210mm to a 170mm, and OSd to 14 !!
Then, now in Babyusk, June '44, where I need to defend I wanted another range 4 unit so I sacrificed a 105mm for the 280mm K5 8) raised to 12, for Soft Cap's sake :(
I see now that has only 60% RoF = total shots 7

Re: Soft Cap

Really the Air Force doesn't count for the Soft Cap? I've been keeping it down for nothing till now? Fighters count towards your soft cap. Everything counts against your soft cap, except SE units. If you have a unit marked SE, it does not count against your soft cap. Thank You... So in order to kee...

Re: Favorite Artillery unit

I read here a thread where were compared the different calibers, I don't remember its title. The 210 performed better than the 170 thus I preferred it. The Wespe costs only 62 credits more than the towed 105, the Hummer 65 more than the 150, so I would prefer the SPAT over the relative caliber with ...

Re: Soft Cap

I often struggle with prestige at 75% and no soft cap, so you're doing better than me. Even with these settings, it's important not to waste prestige as you never know when you will have an emergency - three tank destroyers catching a 5* panzerwerfer in the snow, leaving it at 2 strength can make i...

Re: Favorite Artillery unit

My beloved one is a towed 10,5 cm I have since Poland '39. 5* and a +1 Range Hero. I gifted her a Sdkfz. I'm not using rocket artillery anymore, since I prefer more range. The "range exeption" is the StugIIIB which is probably the top cost/effectiveness unit in game. I had 2 of them, one with a +1 R...

Re: Soft Cap

I don't like to modify the game's file. I deal with the Soft Cap on my own. I find it strange though that now for example, in GC East '44 I should Not deploy my best units such 3 Tigers, 1 FW190, 1 Elefant. I'm still using a Pz III M with the hero Albert, who can still keep up vs a IS-1 ( losses: 2v...
