Re: A case of magically appearing enemy units

I, too, had a nasty surprise in Messina playing on Colonel. I thought I'd cleared the mid-left part of the board and could launch an attack on the back of the stubborn troops in the bottom left corner. I wasn't too happy to be surrounded in the turn after starting on my brilliant plan and then have ...

Re: Western Allied equipment

I was just reading ThvNs post - part way through I started thinking that the recommaisance roles described could probably work along the lines of mobile radar installations or increased spotting in naval role, adding to initiative or or maybe range when I get the the final paragraph.So 100% agreemen...

Re: Pause Enemy Turn

I quite like the idea of pause enemy move (space bar sounds fine) but I also like th eidea of being able to check what happened after the event. Sometimes I get distracted by something but also because if a second attack starts before you press Control L, then you can never find out what on earth ha...

Re: French Campaign Misery

I had some problems with these French ones at first. Now I have some idea what to do with different troops, my recent experience has been better. The comments on knowing when to defend are sound - I have almost wiped out the entire French counter attacking force through a well placed defence backed ...

Re: Does anyone else have trouble going back to Vanilla Corp

I prefer the DLCs and Afrika Korps but recently ran through the main camapaign for a change and enjoyed it, though it does have quite a different feel from the DLCs (especially straight after AK). For me, Panzer Corps remains playable because of the variations possible. The difficulty levels and ini...

Re: rare heros

In the main campaign I ended up with an HE177 with 2 attack heroes at +3 - I never got a third hero with this one. This was very good for mincing allied ships in Overlord, and did some useful damage to heavy land units I was trying to strip of ammo and fuel. I have started to like spotting heroes fo...

Re: Losing Core Units

I don't like losing core units, but that's usually because I mostly lose them when I've stuffed up and realise I've been dumb, which makes me feel bad and means I have to try harder next time! If unit destruction is more a case of "rendered incapable of fighting" than actually broken, killed etc, th...

Re: DLC: Captured Units

I've done Metaxa line a few times and never yet got the Matilda 2. I'm pretty sure I didn't leave troops around Keramoti last time I played, just captured the city and moved everyone else on to the next target. In Dunkirk I've captured De Panne and didn't get one either. This is a bit disappointing,...

Re: Combat mechanics

Good explanation Rudankort - I had been reading up on initiative and combat results and this was something I hadn't understood before.
As usual, I need to plan better!

Re: FAQ / Common Questions

When my 4* Italian strategic bomber attacks engineers, HW or other ground unit with [X] air attack, it appears that the ground unit does not get to attack the bomber. Is this correct? It would make sense as I would think that strategic bombers would be too high for defence with lighter non-specialis...

AK - Dash to the Wire - 4 hangers gone for one reward. Spoil

Dash to the Wire is driving me mad (mostly for all the right reasons). Today I destroyed all four hangars in the lower left corner but only got one reward (the Stug 3). There were still at least 6 turns remaining, possibly eight or more, so it probably wasn't timed out. They didn't appear in my army...
