Re: Air Defense in old Panzer General

Actually I did read it, the first 10 times you posted it. You're stuck on that material like a dog on a bone. What can be said incontrovertibly at this point is that you've ignored what most others have explained over and over- a tank modeled in game is not actually just some tanks. It's the entire...

Re: Air Defense in old Panzer General

yadda, yadda, lots of stuff previously said in other threads on these forums So why then didn't the Germans realize that tac air is pointless and stop caring? You know, start driving around combat zones in broad daylight again? Stop jumping out of their tanks and surrendering when they hear an airp...

Re: Air Defense in old Panzer General

so game-play wise, no bomber should do more damage to a tank unit in the open, than single point of damage.... because that is practically 10% of effectiveness of that unit. fighters should not do even that, and that single point should be taken only in very rare circumstances.

Re: P47 v P51

another important stat that is quite overlooked in ammo load... most of German fighters actually carried very limited number of rounds for their cannons.. plus, these cannons had low rate of fire, and relatively low muzzle velocity, therefore were not ideal at killing other fighters. (MG FF especial...

Re: Air Defense in old Panzer General

actually, tac air was one of the most overrated weapon when it comes to killing tanks.. but lets look at Normandy numbers: During Operation Goodwood (18th to 21st July) the 2nd Tactical Air Force and 9th USAAF claimed 257 and 134 tanks, respectively, as destroyed. Of these, 222 were claimed by Typho...

Re: P47 v P51

i think plane stats are not done that well in panzer corps.. personally, i think initiative, attack and defense could symbolize certain plane characteristics and stats would then better simulate certain plane abilities... For example Initiative, should represent speed and climb rate/ceiling - any pl...

Re: Air Defense in old Panzer General

With fuel and ammo relation - thing is Panzer Corps uses fuel and ammo system (which OOB doesnt use), therefore if aircraft were effective at crippling the tank formations by denying them fuel and ammo, then it should be portrayed in the game instead of hard kill. It is portrayed in game. Strategic...

Re: Air Defense in old Panzer General

my point is that quad 20mm was not actually less effective than 88 in Air Defense role, in reality, tactical air feared them a lot more than 88's, which were their common targets. not in Panzer Corps. Light AAA was a lot more dangerous than what Panzer Corps has it to be.. in game, you will always u...

Air Defense in old Panzer General

I think Air Defense as it is in Panzer Corps would be better off with two distinct categories instead of just one (as in old PG, but for different setup). Units capable of defending ground units against air attacks, and units capable firing at air units but not able to defend other units. Why? its r...

Re: Favorite Artillery unit

i think artillery could use some improvement as a lot of systems is not modeled properly.. for example British Sexton, not many realize how effective it actually was - it carried 108 rounds on board, therefore it could provide fire support for a lot longer, than German self propelled systems.. 10.5c...

Re: Favorite Artillery unit

yes,heroes tend to disbalance the units, but even base stats are not that well balanced for artillery.. all artillery is moving single hex, ignoring actual weight of those pieces - while 75mm field gun would be easier to re-position with light vehicles, 17cm gun would require heavy prime movers to g...

Re: Favorite Artillery unit

Personally, i feel like the whole artillery concept needs massive rework, because this focus on heavy and long range artillery doesn't really cope with what was actually used during WW2.. medium artillery was a lot more usable than some 17cm long guns (or 155mm long Tom for that matter), yet right n...

Re: Favorite Artillery unit

its actually probably one of game flaws, but you can perfectly do with just tanks and artillery through whole game... you don't even need infantry units whatsoever if you can bring enough of artillery with you... even in cities tanks with artillery behind them are perfectly fine...

Re: Disbanding Transports & Losing Transports

you probably misunderstood what i wrote - M2HB was an advantage for M3 Halftrack over 251, yet armor protection was better for 251 due to sloped sides... M3 had flat sides that could be penetrated by standard rifle ammunition.. and btw MG34/42 were not SMG (sub-machine gun) but GPMG - they filled ro...

Re: Major Flaw

Re: Disbanding Transports & Losing Transports

price difference between 251 and 250 should be smaller, i'd say if 250 costs 200, then 251 should cost 175 at least.. that would make it costly and rare.. trucks could go up to 100, so again, player would only use them for some units, not all of them. disappearance of halftrack is most likely a bug ...
