Help with adding minesweeping back into a unit

I'm not really much of a modder, but I have figured out how to add a point here or there in the equipment editor. I was adding a point to IT infantry SA and I said what the heck and added a point of initiative to pioneer. When I started my saved game back up my pioneers had lost the ability to take ...

Re: Early strategy AK

I'm playing on FM and I made the decision to keep the Italian units till they died. I do not know if it was the right decision. I still have one tank, two infantry, and the arty as of the beginning of Gazala Line, however they are constantly sending me into a rage and making me scream like Sam Kinis...

Re: Best way to tackle replacements?

I played the DLCs on FM. This may not be the "best" strategy for replacements, but it worked for me. During the replacement phase, I would give regular replacements to all my front line fighters till they got the first hero. Once that happened they got only elite replacements. Arty and air always go...

Re: What is your favorite DLC campaign so far?

I'm torn. I don't know which to vote for. I had tons of fun with several of the early to mid-war DLCs. I loved 39, 40, and 42, about equally. The smaller maps and engagements for the Blitzkrieg through Poland and France was a welcome change. DLC 39 and 40 is where I developed and nurtured a strong i...

Re: Berlin '45 Help

I just finished Berlin 45 on FM tonight. Tough battle and I'm mentally exhausted. I got a DV, but my core is beat up. I lost 4 five star units. I would not have been so stingy on the in game elite replacements had I known what was coming next. I intuitively used the same strategy that has been previ...

Alt History African Campaign What would you do?

OK fellow Generals. Just for fun (the boards have been a little slow lately) and in anticipation for the upcoming Afrika Corps expansion I would like to pose this question- You are General, it is January 1st 1941, and assuming relatively little political interference from Berlin, how would you have ...

Re: Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps first peak!

I've been missing Africa. It is my favorite theater of the war.

I was kind of wishing they would incorporate a naval core, but I suppose this is Afrika Korps not Kreigsmarine Korps.

Re: Difficulty Help Please

When I was learning the game I kept it on medium difficulty, but I had supply, and fog of war turned off. Once I learned the capabilities of mine and my enemies units I just turned them back on. Worked for me.

This is not really an AAR, but I did not know where else to put this. These are just some impressions I had after finishing DLC 43 on Field Marshal. As always, I'm looking forward to DLC 44. Kharkov 43: I had to restart this one after 7-8 turns. I put so many offensive forces going to claim objectiv...

Toughest recon ever!) 2x PzIII N (All the T-34s I had layi...

Re: Just looked at the DLC 43 Screen Shots

After looking at the screenshots I think that my 2 88s are going to go back to doing the role that they were originally intended for. That is a lot of Soviet airpower.

Re: Has anyone got a decisive on Arras on FM setting?

I played it on FM. It is one of the only maps I did not get a decisive on. I was pretty beat up after winning the marginal and after doing some recon I felt like there was a good chance I would lose some units.

Re: Pool of Heros

It seems like a fun idea, however it also would be easily abusable and would definitely cause serious balance issues.

That said, it could be a fun option for the newer players as they learn the game. It could be made an option at the start up screen along with weather, fog of war, supply.

Re: Pavlov's House

The forces defending Pavlov's House blocked the entire southern wing of my city offensive for 5 days. I had to divert much of army rooting them out of their little hidy-holes. Very few fortresses have been able to do that to me. So somewhere around 30 people (according to that wiki) blocked half of ...

If you get your paras any form of transport then they deploy on ground. If they dont have transports and air transport is available they start in the air. Many thanks for the speedy reply.

Re: Urban Warfare - PZIIIN/Pioniers

I have not been impressed with pioneers in Panzer Corps. Pioneers were awesome in previous versions of this game. In this game - not so much. They are slow and I see little point in ignoring rugged defense if you are going to take 3-4 damage on every attack you make anyway. I have much better succes...

I completed DLC 42 this weekend. I play on field marshal and it feels to be the right difficulty. I had a lot of fun with the early defensive battles. They were wonderful.

Re: How many SE Units can I have?

If I remember correct, besides not taking up a core slot, SE units have an additional +1 attack and a +1 ammo.

The drawback is that they have a -1 defense.
