Re: Postcards from the OstFront - a General-Level AAR

10th August 1943 Herr General had instructed me and my staff to arrange for him to visit 25 Infanterie's command post in Smolensk this morning, as a Knights Cross was in his pocket ready for awarding to Major Zoll, acting commander of the regiment in recognition of the numerous examples of personal ...

Re: Panzer Corps 2 - Spanish Civil War || Dev Diary #1

Wow - thanks for the detailed update and I'm very much looking forward to getting the expansion! One "however" from me, if i may though........ I consider the Heroes mechanic a complete game-breaker and turn it off. Whilst I like the reward of historical "superheroes" for exceptional mission perform...

Re: Ideas for Panzer Corps 2

I wonder if it might be possible to be able to play as part of a specific army group in the east, on a year-by-year basis, at some point in the future. Sort of a different approach to the Grand Campaign. E.g. if you choose to be part of Army Group North, you take part on the drive through the Balti...

Re: Postcards from the OstFront - a General-Level AAR

7th August 1943 We have barely been able to de-train and organise in time to meet the Soviet offensive, but almost all our available units are now in position although we have actually run out of room around Smolensk to deploy without causing gridlock and confusion! We need to ensure that the enemy ...

Re: Postcards from the OstFront - a General-Level AAR

7th August 1943 And so, after delivering what we considered to be a crushing blow to the Soviets around Kursk, it is clear that there remains much to do. Offensives have been launched across the entire Eastern Front and although our recent actions have put paid to Soviet plans around Orel and Kharko...

Re: Herr Pferdmann rides again!

I am seeing the power of AA Veteran + 88 FlaK. It will be interesting to see how that scales up as the months roll by in your campaign, Herr General!

Re: Postcards from the OstFront - a General-Level AAR

OOC I really, really enjoyed Kursk - it suited my personal playstyle preference of pursuing multiple objectives simultaneously with a "quantity first" focus. I took immense satisfaction (and gaming pleasure) from the Panzer Corps 2 version of the Prokhorova battle, which became an absolute slaughter...

Re: Postcards from the OstFront - a General-Level AAR

21st July 1943 The situation east of Belgorod and Kharkov has gone from being a simple matter of swatting away a force of light tanks and infantry unable to resist our panzers to a matter with the potential to unravel everything we've worked to achieve so far - and that is written without a trace of...

Re: Weekly Unit Discussion Thread

I'm going to go against the grain a bit and do some cheerleading for the 17cm kanone. With slow modernization in play, I don't have the luxury of chopping and changing my arty as there's always too much other stuff to improve with those 3 choices! Being able to stand-off from 4 hexes (5 from a hills...

Re: Postcards from the OstFront - a General-Level AAR

This is epic! I'm sure that the actual battle took me less time to complete than this report!! I doubt I'll be taking as many pics per day for the next couple but then, this IS Kursk and there are two full Panzer Corps on the board. I'll get the final installment done in the next day or so around "...

Re: Postcards from the OstFront - a General-Level AAR

17th July 1943 What had been reported yesterday as a seemingly easy capture of the enemy supply hub east of Kursk may yet perhaps bring some complications, as our probes have revealed that another heavily reinforced regiment of the same 150mm-gunned SU assault guns is in the vicinity! https://rkznwg...

Re: Postcards from the OstFront - a General-Level AAR

11th July 1943 Dawn air strikes by ZG 99 revealed that the enemy's tank forces around Prokhorova remain formidable. Confidence in our tactics, equipment and men remains very high despite this, however, given the relative ease with which our hardened veterans have dealt with their opponents so far. h...

Re: Postcards from the OstFront - a General-Level AAR

8th July 1943 3 Panzer has continued according to its orders to sweep the enemy out of the forested areas east of Belgorod. Whilst its assault regiment was busy flushing out enemy militia, its FlaK-Abteilung raked a roving La-5 wing which made it easy prey for JG 26 which cleared it from the sky. ht...

Re: Postcards from the OstFront - a General-Level AAR

5th July 1943 And so it begins. On realising that the advance route north from our own starting positions was held by an enemy Guards division, 17 Panzer's initial direction of attack was shifted subtly to allow it to work with 25 Infanterie to clear the way forward. https://ryeqfa.db.files.1drv.com...

Re: Postcards from the OstFront - a General-Level AAR

4th July 1943 Whilst the overarching strategic plan is for the two pincers to join up east of Kursk and kettle both the city and everything between it and edge of the salient, much will depend on the true extent of enemy defences and the intentions of Stavka with regards to the various tank armies t...

Re: Postcards from the OstFront - a General-Level AAR

OOC Bear with me - up to turn 13 at Kursk so still plenty of time needed, let alone the time to write up an average of 4-5 screenshots per day :-) I'm worried that things are going too well. I'm containing the big reserve force in the NE beyond Orel and am probably close to being able to encircle wh...

Re: Looking ahead to Patch 5

Re: Postcards from the OstFront - a General-Level AAR

Thanks both - I'd gone as far as replaying the final turn from the last mission so I could take a "turn zero" look at Sicily! The OCD gamer in me would want to have played through a full campaign with one or two experienced Jager Divisions (probably 2x GBJ, 1 Pio plus Pak, Arty and Flak) before emba...
