Re: Evil 8.8 cm Flak vs other AA guns

I've always found AA to be very useful and i finished up the eastern DLC with 2 mobile panzer flaks and 1 88. A very cheap and reliable method of keeping those horrible super strength Russian fighters down to manageable levels, saving me some expensive luftwaffe replacements. They also kept my groun...

Re: Public Beta v1.21 now avilable!

I'm happy to wait, Panzer Corps will be a far better game once all the advanced options are finalized and working smoothly

Re: Tank Destroyer / Jagdpanzer

While its good to have the modding option available its unfortunate that its a necessity. I wish the vanilla eqp file was more standardised across nations, unit classes and weapons and more effort had been put into developing a more comprehensive and accurate set of statistics earlier on. The stats ...

Re: Transport effects movement.

You can move the unit into a city and then upgrade it. This time, remove the truck. This is only workable provided there is a town close enough to the terrain you want to walk through otherwise your motorized troops are halted. Mountain troops may move quickly through a mountain range but this isn'...

Re: Download the Panzer Corps 1.21 Public Beta

one unit will move out, get clobbered (thus revealing my artillery trap). A second unit will do the same despite having realized the arty was there. However it's still out of that unit's vision so it acts as if it learned nothing from watching prior play in the turn. This is a bit off topic but it ...

Re: Transport effects movement.

There should be an option to leave transports behind if it prevents entering a terrain type.
Yes I hope this gets fixed one day.

Re: Why can't AA / Artillery units conquer flags?

I think when Panzer Corps got released it was one of those features that was carried over from the original panzer general game, so i'm not sure what the definitive reasoning was but i think primarily its because these are considered support units not front line troops. Its a rule that was probably ...

Re: Tank Destroyer / Jagdpanzer

Its true elefant is too fat and too slow for its own good and cannot fight back effectively but its SA is poor and it gets a combat penalty against troops. What it does have is armour and a hell of a lot of it. Its nearly 3 times thicker than a Pz IV all round and this must count for something. Ther...

Re: Tank Destroyer / Jagdpanzer

Elefant was a different kettle of fish to the Ferdinand's fielded at Kursk. They had a commanders cupola, machine gun and were coated in zimmerit paste to stop some explosive weapons sticking to the sides (although this did make them even heavier :shock: ) . Many AT weapons are not even capable of p...

Re: Have you changed your Core from Patch 1.20

However, I do notice that it is much more effective. It might be due to the experience changes if your playing the campaign. A couple of stars will give your troops and tanks (especially) considerable advasntages over the no star enemies faced in the early campaign years. Either that or your playin...

Re: Further Plans

But if an AC GC is confirmed we need to be able to play as Poland, Norway, France, and Belgium. (Maybe a scenario for the good ol' Dutch too :)) and some more "Disputes" with the Soviets :wink: I always thought of an allied corps DLC along traditional British or American lines. I don't see how it c...

Re: Have you changed your Core from Patch 1.20

I also rely on a large infantry force in my core and always have at least 1 of each of the specialized troops when the slots permit. I like to have units representing all classes and disciplines, able to handle any situation that might arise so i can't say my core force has changed a great deal. Pla...

Re: Download the Panzer Corps 1.21 Public Beta

Considering that some of your units are very expensive in terms of calculated prestige cost (your Fallschirmjäger are more then 1200 pp each,
How exactly do you come up with a calculated prestige cost that has fallschirmjagers valued at 1200 pp ? How much is a King Tiger worth ?

Re: Download the Panzer Corps 1.21 Public Beta

So far i get the double value defense ratings for entrenchments hit by artillery fire in the German DLC and the combat log correctly shows altered values if i use a modded set. Havn't had to add any extra gamerulz files

Re: AC: any reason to take anything but Churchills?

I havn't played allied corps yet but its interesting you had no spitfires, I would have thought them a pretty essential unit. Didn't know anything about the meteor during WW2 so had a bit of read on google. Apparently they were around in late 44 but forbidden to fly over Germany in case they were bo...

Re: AC: any reason to take anything but Churchills?

There is no scenario that punishes slow tank speed, not even Arnhem. The default campaign punishes slow speed in some US scenarios. The thing is, speed 4 is still good enough and better than speed 6 and being a Panther G - I had more success with the Tiger II than the Panther G. Speed 3 is extremel...

Re: AC: any reason to take anything but Churchills?

To account for a vehicles' mobility is more difficult for me, as it is also determined by manoeuvrability, not just speed. Actually, in combat acceleration is very important, and some tanks were very slow to turn, making them more vulnerable at shorter ranges. Its a pretty safe bet to say who the w...

Re: Public Beta v1.21 now avilable!

Also noticed that selecting 1 for range attack penalty actually adds an attack point per hex to your artillery bombardment, so you can make distant fire more deadly. You have to subtract the figure to make it a true penalty. No doubt obvious to many clear thinkers here
