Flampanzer Heinz Rondorf 3 star double hero
You absolutely MUST get Rondorf out of that Flammpanzer. He's too valuable for that. This is 1944. The fun's over. Besides, a weak Flammpanzer will draw repeated attacks by T34/85's until he's gone - which should be about 2 attacks BTW. This is how it will go. As the AI plays out its turn he'll be quickly spotted & targeted. There will be a few seconds of relief after he survives the first attack reduced to a 2 strength unit. Unfortunately, this will be a very fleeting feeling as another tank then appears from the fog to finish him. The AI just loves killing those.

You can go with your choice of a Panther or Tiger upgrade. With all of his bonuses you can't make a bad decision. Good luck!

Well it looks like I took your advice TSPC37730 :wink:

Actually I am currently on Babruysk, just have not had enough time to type these out, but I am working on that. :roll: :wink:
I love playing through this blind but boy can it cost me.

We will see how that goes.

Moving Forward onto Strachwitz Offensive.

Excellent read. Just finishing up 1944 myself. Hovering around 30K for prestige. Need to not give in to the temptation of over strengthening units.

Glad you are posting this. Keep up the good work.

This was a fun little side adventure. I am really glad I chose not to buy any additional AA units since I lost my other 88. Now I have so many I will never run out.

I bet no one has ever been able to defeat all of the stuff on this map. It is a nice limited set up to restrict and challenge players like me who desire to take it all over. Looking at all the stuff on the final map there is no way anyone ever can destroy all of the stuff on this map. I don't care what level you are playing at. :shock: SHEESH!!!

Overall not too difficult once you bleed them dry. If I was to play again I would distribute Army better near Mogilev in order to not leave the arty's so vulnerable.

Next will be Babruysk starting with 49401 in Prestige.
And I finally was awarded another SE unit. An SE Panther which I considered keeping it as a Panther for about 10 seconds before I decided I am going to upgrade to another SE Tiger 2

Having so much fun.

Did you take on any of the IS-2's on Poltava? I avoid the ones in the south and north and they never attack you. I drive to the central airfield with the IS-2 and usually surround it with artillery and force it to surrender with like 13-14 strength by shelling it with like 10 artillery pieces. I then drive north from the airfield region and destroy stuff, and also drive east to the edge of the map and finish off the clusters of AA and artillery out there. There are more tanks to the north and south I have never engaged.

Did I take on any IS-2's?!? They were 15 str monsters!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:
No I avoided them like the plague, I tried pressing in other areas that did not show as much insane strength, but once I didn'y see any immediate areas to take over I finished the mission.

I see you say you destroyed an IS-2 near an airfield but I looked through my playthrough extremely carefully and I do not see any IS-2's and I took all of the airfields so you must mean South of the airfield's in the center, because I saw those.
Your idea to surround and suppress them was brilliant, I was worried that if I tried taking on some of those big dogs I would have activated some kind of massive backlash, since this was a blind through I am taking chances but trying to avoid putting my neck out there to get cut off, however sometimes that happens, and that is okay as I am playing blind and at Field Marshall level.

Minsk 44
Starting Prestige 49761 after upgrades, replacements, and overstrength 41280 (8500 spent whoa that is some serious bread and I needed it)
Supposed to get 150 per round.

After looking at the map I am making the command decision to not put anything in the very Northern sector and instead concentrating everything around Minsk itself and putting a strong force around Uzda for a Southern puch once I push back the Southern advance and take the secondary objectives I will then swing up North to push on everything coming at Minsk to seize all of the other primary objectives for the win. (Well that is the plan anyway.) :roll: :? :mrgreen:

I should have written down what I placed around Minsk and in the South but I ended up just writing it all down, sorry. :oops:

Ending with 44647 in prestige.

Oh Man!!! I needed that last turn and I had to push hard to get it on the last turn. This one was a tougher slog and I lost a good unit I was trying to baby up into something special because I got cocky again. I almost lost more though and am thankful that I didn't.

Next will be Vilna which looks Ginormous and I am starting with 47647.

In looking at the map I am not sure how I will hold all of the map and take it over. I at least have 30 rounds to do it in. There are 5 deployment places but I think I will deploy them in 3 of them in 3 Strong Battle Groups.
1 in North near Sirvintes.
1 in South around Lida
and 1 in the Middle around Vilna.

I think that is what I will do and try pushing out in all areas but there sure is a lot of trees and rough terrain.

Until then...Stay Lutheran My Friends. ;)

Vilna. A great scenario. So many ways to approach it...

All I can really say is that this scenario is why you play the game.

Ending with 46054 Next Warsaw Uprising

My overall assessment of this battle is I could have and should have done much better than I did if I could only be more patient. I played with urgency that was not needed based on the 30 turns. This impatience cost me big time by me losing some pretty nice units and after some time to consider some of the attacks and results I am strongly considering changing the rest of my tanks to either Tiger 2's or Maus's once they become available as I have plenty of prestige and want to continue wiping them out and not fear their counter assaults. I may still keep my 2 Tigers and will definitely upgrade my P2 4J's, last remaining Panther, my 2 KV-1C's before I use them again probably in 1945 as the next battle looks like Panzers are not necessary and may hold off until I finish 1944.

Looking at the next map of Warsaw and reading the briefing and the 22 turns I will get to quell the uprising I am going heavy on infantry and artillery and Strat Bombers, but once I have secured Warsaw I will leave one victory hex open so I can conquer the Soviet units on the outskirts. With 0 prestige earned per turn I am going to try and keep it within soft cap on my deployment at least until I start assaulting those Soviet units.
This scenario looks much easier than previous ones and it will be good for a breather.

Until then...Stay Lutheran My Friends. :wink:

Hi Goose,
have you seen the Russian units outside Warsaw????? Unless you take some very heavy tanks you stand a very good chance of being creamed and for next to zero points. Stay safe , take Warsaw, live to fight another day ! P.s. take TAC's rather than Strats.

Good Luck
Martin.

I agree. Don't be a hero Goose. It would be almost like trying to play two scenarios & two armies at once, but, only being able to deploy one core. If you choose to take on the Russians then every heavy tank you deploy is one less infantry or artillery unit to deploy & use in the city.

I disagree here. Strategic bombers are very helpful for stripping enemy units of ammo. That's my game play style though.


Lastly, don't discount the Allied air force...

Hi TSPC37730,
I have be using the Tac's Usually 2x Ju87's Rudel and best other, I use then to destroy the captured German equipment and bunkers. the Polish AA is low level and easily smashed by Arty, I Found strats great for anti shipping but that's about all, but I have never really used them so I am open to their possibilities.

Well, of course you'll always want to bring Rudel because of the bonuses. Other than that, I prefer strategic bombers vs tactical bombers in urban scenarios like Warsaw & Stalingrad. Admittedly, the strategic bombers don't do much damage - and often enough no damage at all. But, they do cause suppression and strip away ammo - as well as reducing entrenchment. This will make attacking much easier. An enemy unit with no ammo can't hurt you no matter what its stats are or how strong it is. The AI knows this too, and if you've ever happened to have any unit in the line run out of ammo, then you know the AI will attack that unit very aggressively. I like to use the strategic bombers in the earlier years. With careful play, the suppression they cause can lead to unit surrenders & free prestige. Admittedly, I don't use them as much in the later years due to the overabundance of enemy fighters and T90's. I honestly don't use many air units of any kind as much in the later years for that matter. The prestige costs can quickly get out of hand - even if you're careful. I prefer to take free shots with my 88's. But, again, in the big picture strategic bombers are just a part of my play style. If you prefer the Ju87's & FW190's that's ok if it works for you. Good luck!

Oh No this is not going to work. Soviets hit back on units I am bringing to bear.
AA hit Heinrich Bar -6 me; AA hit Walter Nowatny -4 me; Reg Inf hit pioniere -4 them -1 me; Guards hit Movement Gerbisjager -7 them -4 me.
Day 19 Sunny
I am going to end this right now instead of lose a bunch of units and cost me more than it is worth.
destroyed Polish Insurgents, Reg Inf, Guards, and T-34/85.
Seized Airfield (13,4) and Praga Rail station.

Decisive Victory with ending 44523

That proved a little more difficult than I thought it would. Those Poles were a little unhistorical but I don't mind as that meant it didn't quite feel as like the kicking puppies type of scenario that a historical scenario would have been, given the army I can unhistorically field at this stage in the war.

Next Budapest 44 which I have heard is very frustrating we shall see how I do.
Starting at 47178

Cursory look at the map I see try splitting into 3 Battle Corps in the North South and Center.

Hi Goose,
Warsaw is a tough game, the Poles fight very well, I found that only massed arty over whelmed them, in reality it was the RAF but with Polish crews that tried to supply Warsaw but suffered very heavy losses, Kicking Puppies.. Never..

all the best

I like your idea of leaving one objective uncaptured to act as a "kill switch" to end the scenario. It's a good way to end things on your terms and at a time of your choosing.

If you were to take on the Russians, I think the best strategy would be to try to bait them into attacking your infantry units in the city. Experienced, high initiative infantry units can dish out serious damage to even JS II's. Ambushes & close defense combat both will work in your favor. You'll still take casualties, but they will be less costly than a purely tank vs tank encounter. In the south, a pair of strong tanks or Jagdtiger units can park next to the bridges and stop any units from crossing. Not a big deal, but the key takeaway here is that you won't need many units to accomplish this and it will free up more units for the main fight. Further, the Russians will be funneled into the city from the east side to get to you. Speaking of bridges, if you do get the Russians to attack you in Warsaw proper, you can use those to your advantage too by blocking one side & attacking any enemy units that end up parked on them.

But then it's all a little theoretical. I'm not sure what the "trigger" is to get the Russians to advance. I'm not sure if it's hex or objective based, or perhaps turn based. I'm not sure I want to know even if you do. Someday I may go back & try another play through.
