AFAIK you can't complete the sec. obj. with just the Condor tact. bombers.
Well believe me I've certainly tried!

Re: Kriegsmarine Operation Torch, No Carrier Now

...and now having played the scenario a few times; How the HELL do you get the bonus objective on this one? Even rushing my condors over and using that one sub, I can't take out the units, or destroy enough of the supply ships, before they take the French objectives.

Kriegsmarine Operation Torch, No Carrier Now

So it appears that I can no longer take the Flugzeugtrager specialization to get the Graf Zepplin for this mission. When did this change, and why?

Re: Waffen SS II specialization bugged

Fix the tooltip. Problem solved.

The functionality of the spec is fine. It is the text that needs to change to reflect it.

Re: Todt Specialization

If mines cost 20 to place, then I must have run into a bug, because I'm almost certain that my Bautruppe placed them for free.

Re: Todt Specialization

Basically a really weak engineer unit.

I've made good use of it on scenarios where I wanted to use lots of mines.

Re: Transport Options

Half-tracks can attack at the end of your movement, so they can be useful in pursuit.

Just Finished Kursk!

I just finished Kursk, and it was quite a scenario! I didn't have a soil-your-pants moment like some people had; but I did have one of those moments where you realize that you're going to need to throw all your plans out the window. I was scouting ahead with my 109's, when they discovered the massiv...

Re: No reward for saving the 6th Army

I'm rolling into Kursk with around 1800 RP; plenty to pay for upgrades. Of course I only play on the regular difficulty. I also play artillery-heavy and bomber-heavy, so I rarely took losses in the previous scenarios. I have a feeling that the people having money issues play a much more "grind it ou...

Re: Panzers too slow in blitzkrieg

Remember in 1940, when German infantry poured through the Ardennes, and they advanced so quickly that once they were through, they had to stop and wait for the tanks to catch up?

Panzerkeil Reducing Defense

The Panzerkiel specialization seems to be simultaneously reducing your own units' defense while increasing the opponents'.

Re: Panzers too slow in blitzkrieg

The only way to capture Luxembourg in two turns now, is to use a unit with a speed of six, or a slower one with transport. Panzers will not make it in time.

Re: Tanks among the trees

In addition, for me the above combat results are not difficult understand if you imagine the tank corps/divisions are just ... actual tank corps/divisions from WW2. Most of the troops were not in an actual tank and were just motorised in some way. This also helps explain why tanks aren't so much ov...

Re: Waffen SS

As far as wanting them to "cost less command points to deploy"; just consider them "extra" command points, and it is basically the same thing.

Re: No reward for saving the 6th Army

I'll just be using the cheat on Kursk to give myself 3CP for saving the 6th Army.

Re: Panzerkrieg-Onto the Plains of Russia! (Review and Discu

So I've made it to Operation Star, and I ran afoul of the Turn 11 victory bug. Despite the bug, I actually feel okay with continuing at this point; I don't really care for defense scenarios that much since Winter War. I had only taken a grand total of 2 damage to ground core units up to that point, ...

I hope it is Kursk that is bugged, and not Winterstorm. Because I don't want to play the scenario after Winterstorm again.

Re: No reward for saving the 6th Army

So if I have 106 CP for Kursk, am I, or am I not getting the bonus CP for Caucuses and Winterstorm? Seems you got the same as I (base 95, +4 specs, +3 Maykop oil, +4 quick win at Kharkov = 106 CP) and nothing for saving the 6th Army. Was there a new armoured core unit west of the aux PzKw III N and...
