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

1st Sept 1942 The reds haven't given up in the central area yet - a reinforced Guards force has been rushed up on 25 Infanterie's NE flank and 3 fresh enemy air wings were seen flying into the nearby airfield. https://8jxfbw.db.files.1drv.com/y4mG6CbrCZWjDoWc_hM1ayRMWfhUNL27rPE-7uyRdx4Gf62bXZ_FvBK7F...

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

23rd August 1942 The view of the approaches to the west of Stalingrad for the divisions deployed by Corps for this sure-to-be-bitterly-contested operation look like this, moving along the line from south to north: 132 Infanterie, with initial orders to cross the tributary river flowing into the Volg...

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

OUT OF CHARACTER Bear with me, lots and lots of turns and a fair amount to write up, but the mission is complete! Human wave after human wave........one or two very hairy moments where "local penetrations" didn't get "sealed off by decisive counterattacks" and I had to focus very hard on getting the...

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

23rd August 1942 Corps' plan for the initial thrusts into Stalingrad are set out below. The priority is to secure the Central and Southern railway stations and ideally eliminate any threats in the city's southern districts before establishing a solid north-facing front and methodically sweeping away...

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

23rd Aug 1942 All the administration needed to see us move into Von Paulus' command in 6 Armee is complete, space has been made for our formations to move up on the road and rail links towards the city on the Volga and the final preparations for the jump-off have been completed. Delivering a decisiv...

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

The reserves at Voronezh have a specific trigger which I believe is to take and hold the objective. Knowing this it is possible to ignore them until you're ready for them (because you have them encircled?) but personally I hate that sort of gamey play. I have previously suggested in other topics th...

Re: Ack Ack Won't Ack!?

I have noticed that the AI likes to use artillery on your AA guns before sending in a air attack. So my guess would be suppression. Click on your AA unit and check, or see if there is a blue number in its panel on the bottom that represents suppressed strength Likewise, using your own artillery on ...

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

OUT OF CHARACTER FINDINGS: Soviet cavalry are frustratingly mobile, but this is the steppe and is good terrain for them so I have praise rather than criticism for their prevalence - Ghenghis Khan wasn't wrong, after all. I got stung a couple of times by cavalry charging in from beyond my spotting (a...

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

4th July 1942 In a day of otherwise routine operations and the usual grind of Corps administration, 17 Panzer reported that one of two elite Guards regiments it was in contact with in Rostov had been forced into a surrender; the city is expected to fall into our hands fully tomorrow. https://vfn3ew....

Re: Ask the head of Panzer Corps 2 your questions!

Name = Tony Whilst I appreciate that the devs have to cater for a range of player types, from hardcore min / maxers to hardcore WW2 purists and everyone in between, are there plans to further refine the game AI?

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

1st July 1942 One of the cornerstone elements of the operational plan - cutting off Rostov both north and south - was achieved today with 7 Flieger Division's landings south of the city enabling them to take control of the road south. There aren't the days in the timetable to allow 17 Panzer to simp...

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

28th June 1942 And so, new operations over ground many veterans of XIX Panzer Corps trod last year begin. Whilst the scale of Herr General's command has grown since our last visit to the Don and Donets, the honour roll of our brave dead has grown much larger and yet here we are once again striving f...

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

It's not easy to draw up comprehensive operational plans from a cramped train carriage and without really having much intelligence on enemy dispositions, but permit me to share what Herr General and the division commanders have come up with as an outline plan. The synopsis is: 17 Panzer will cut off...

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

28th June 1942 The last 48 hours has seen the XIX Corps' staff fight their own series of battles with the much-downplayed "bureaucracy of war", as not far short of of 80 thousand personnel and thousands of various vehicles has had to be spirited out of the Crimea and back north into the Ukraine to m...

Re: Ardennes 1944 AKA Battle of the Bulge

Adding to Horseman's thoughts, perhaps replace a couple of Panthers with Pz IIINs to give you more units to work with? 2 slots (with Panzer General trait) for a Panzer III and they have some good close defence stats making them quite versatile.

Re: incredible strengh of T-60

Question to the community: In several scenarios my tanks are crashed from a simple T-60 or T-70. I was attacked from T-34/43 or KV-1 and suffered with my Panzer IV G only one point loss. But the T-60 cost me 3 or 4 points of strengh, I think they are to strong because its a light tank. Can someone ...

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

21 June 1942 Today has seen the final mopping-up of enemy resistance in both the Bartenyevka and Sapun Gora areas. Most of 25 Infanterie and the elements of 3 & 17 Panzer that had been allocated for its support had already been ordered along the road or by rail to Inkerman, for onward deployment in ...
