I admit I also had to take a marginal victory(my only one ) at Modlin. I have an attack hero on one SE tank and a movement hero on one Gebirgs. That is it so far.
Do you think it possible to go beyond 1942 playing with these handicaps? I see no way I can afford to upgrade to the better PzIVs and FW190 to name just two otherwise very necessary unit types. Guess we will see. :D

Hey Buddy,

I had absolutely no time to play at all this weekend, almost all of my free time this weekend, which was not much, was dealing with the Tournament. :mrgreen:

That does not mean that I did not spend anytime thinking about this scenario....

Did you try it shawkhan2? If so would you mine giving me a breakdown of the forces you ended up bringing, and any detail around success or lack there of :cry:

Thanks

Eben-Emael was actually quite easy. I followed my intended strategy and sent one Fsj to the northern airfield while one stayed around the central fortresses to help with their elimination. My pet '88 was great at hitting unsupplied forts and came in handy when the enemy air force showed up. Over 150 Experience on it now. My strategy was to use my air to the North where it was closer to airbases and away from Flak while I used two artillery to move south. The Blitzkrieg concept of flying artillery. Low casualties as most places were hit before they could entrench more fully.

Forces used:

2 FSJ, 3 Gebirgs, 2 Krads
1 PzIIIF, 3 PzIVD (one my only SE armor)
3 art, 105s
1 '88
3 ftrs
1 110D
2 He111s

Yeah, I think with my 2 extra strength points I am giving the enemy will prevent me from trying the Fallschimjaeger Northern assault, but it is a great idea on regular strength units. (Did you take it for the airfield next to Maastricht or the North Eastern most airfield?

I have decided to definitely place my 88 in the midst of Eben Emael...unsure of whether or not to use 3.7cm pak or Panzerjaeger as 2nd unit...I will probably place arty in their as 3rd unit to deploy once moved, but sure looks like it will be hard for me.

Hoping to get time to take a crack or two this week as I have Tuesday through Friday off. :mrgreen:

Marginal Victory with 589 ending Prestige
Next time The Hague with 664.
I was awarded an SE Gebirsjaeger with truck that I will be selling as still awaiting another SE Tank…have to be extremely close with my 1st SE unit to getting a hero and will have to debate whether or not to sell if it is a super good hero.
Looking at the layouts in my other playthroughs I believe the right composition for my army may be the following:
2 Fighters; 2 Fighter Bombers; 1 Tac Bomber; 1 Henkel; 3 tanks; 6 arty’s; 1 Panzerjaeger; 1 Recon; Fallschimjaeger; Reg Inf; Oleh Dir; SE Geb; 2 other Gebirsjaeger’s.
(Let me know what you think because I am considering buying another Fallschimjaeger in a truck…last round is starting to make a Fallschimjaeger believer out of me, just need to keep them on the ground.) :shock:

Panzer 1B? Did I read that correctly? Here's a thought on that. Instead of upgrading it, sell it. You can then buy a more useful tank and you'll only end up paying the difference in price between the Panzer 1B and the new tank. This is in contrast to paying the full price if you choose to upgrade the Panzer IB. On the downside, you'll lose the kills that you've accumulated on the Panzer 1B, but, my guess is that you can make those up with the newer tank.


The Hague is infantry heavy. Hopefully you'll be able to force some surrenders & get your prestige up some. I might suggest another strategic bomber for your deployment for more suppression at key locations to help. Good luck!

I am keeping Pz1B intentionally as a Pz1B as I must be getting close to getting 1st hero on it...At this difficulty level I am very cost effective, so a Pz1B is very good tank to use as it is cheap and helps to finish off or force surrender units.

Once I get the 1st hero on it I will decide then on what, if anything to upgrade it. I plan on hero farming my tanks for the best 1st heroes and sell ones that get lousy heroes...probably...because experience is super important too, and I may have a 2 star +1 Def or +1 Att tank that I just cannot justify selling because it took so long to build...we shall see.

For now Pz1B stays, still trying to wrap my mind around what to take in The Hague, very frustrating going back through my AAR's and watching playthroughs as so many stinking tanks to worry about. :(

Decisive Victory with 1154 ending Prestige
Next time Stonne on my French playthrough with 1654 where I was awarded an SE Inf with a truck, whereas my Britain playthrough with 1654 and an SE Gebirsjaeger with half track.
Both were brutal and required some reevaluation as I did not prepare properly for either playthrough and am now stepping back to do some much needed preparation before Arras and Wassigny.
This weekend I will be setting up Round 8 for the Tournament and preparing and starting my Nordwind scenario in 45 West…decided at trying the historical path first on my Guderian playthrough.

Thanks and as always…Stay Lutheran my Friends :mrgreen:

several replays

sorry for the spamming but I have yet to figure out how I can give you more than 1 replay per post in the new forum
so while the drag n'drop feature is somehow very convenient, it seems to be a bit tricky

so at least I make it short and easy

23 units and 1 SE Pz3F and 1 +1 Movement SE Gebirsjaeger…thoughts on what else to bring?

I would like any thoughts you have to maximize destruction and minimize damage in the next mission.
Thanks and as always…
