I'm in GC 43E right now and 17cm is the way to go.

Re: Mobil AA units.

@PoorOldSpike: I think you are in ground surface mode. Press TAB to switch to air mode and see if you can attack without moving the 7/1. @hugh: Wirbelwind has better defenses (its GD and AD are those of PzIVG) and its tracked movement allows it to move more efficiently over frozen terrain. E.g., in ...

Re: In Defense of Recons

Agree with all the uses mentioned so far. One other use: jack up massive attack bonuses.

The recon is a good example of how a unit type can be valuable if used appropriately.

Re: Best spg

So can u guys share me how to use it in both defense and atk ? I agree with what captainjack said. In my own playthroughs, the StuG IIIB's main role is to provide defensive artillery fire for frontline combat units. This is important for both offensive and defensive scenarios because defensive arti...

Re: +1 initiative

Frontline units in general: infantry, armor, fighter, fighter-bomber. I would prefer tanks and air units to get them if I have a choice.

Re: Oleh Dir.

In a previous playthrough, I upgraded Dir to a pioneer for the reasons discussed above. The combination of initiative, speed, and hitting power is pretty awesome. The one thing to be mindful of is the lower ammo of the pioneer. For a unit with Dir, one is tempted to send it ahead on offensive manoeu...

Re: +1 range.

I put my range heroes on Wufrahmen as well. These units are fragile and one way of protecting them is to increase their range so that they can fire and still stay out of (at least) some counterbattery fire. That is not enough though, because the Wufrahmen's AD is also poor. So, even with range heroe...

Re: Heroes.

I've never tried hero farming before, but I suppose it is viable in the GCs because of the experience caps and the fact that you get a full refund of the purchase price when you disband a unit (replacement costs are not refunded). My current approach to heroes is to reload the turn if I get a hero t...

Re: Timeline, Prestige, Equipment

Excellent work! Thank you. As a suggestion, you might want to include scripted heroes (e.g., Rudel, Dir) that become available in specific scenarios. Some players may find that helpful.

@TSPC37730: I like that idea. Wish I did that for Tatsinskaya and Kotelnikovo. Might try that when I get to Korsun Pocket and Breakout.

Re: Thoughts on 43 Upgrades and future plans

First the facts: SdKfz 10/4: ROF = 10 , cost = 185, AA=11, movt=8 SdKfz 7/1: ROF=12, cost=206, AA=13, movt=5 SdKfz 7/2: ROF=10, cost=232, AA=14, movt=5 All units have GD 2, AD 8 10/4 is the cheapest, but only by 21pp compared to 7/1. 10/4 also has a lower ROF, although its 8 movement is much higher ...

Re: Thoughts on 43 Upgrades and future plans

(Caveat: Never played on Manstein or any of the locked difficulties) Arty: - The +1 range StuG IIIB seems to be a suitable candidate for upgrading to a Wufrahmen. On the offense, having one more Wufrahmen can be quite helpful. The +1 range helps to keep Wurfrahmen away from most Soviet arty, while s...

Re: Special hero units in Grand Campaign

In general, special heroes may not spawn in the first turn, so you need to wait a bit. Did you play through the entire scenario (e.g., Poznan) and did not get Rudel?

Re: Best Infantry Unit discussion

If the AI likes to target units with SdKfz 250/1, consider downgrading the transport to 251/1 or Opel. I don't use the 250/1 because it's too expensive and it's 8-move is a bit of an overkill because infantry should not outpace armor. If you plan on taking the southern Kursk route, then I would reco...

Correction to a previous post: two auxiliary bridge engineers were very helpful in Oboyan, not Ponyri (yet to try the northern Kursk path). I did deploy my bridge engineer at Belgorod to speed up the movement of units across the Donets.

Re: Grand Campaign progress question

In terms of prestige building, I would also suggest planning equipment upgrades to make full use of in-family upgrades. Upgrading within a family (e.g., from PzIIIF to PzIIIG) is cheaper than upgrading across families (e.g., from PzIIIF to PzIVD) because in the former, you pay the price difference, ...
