New bonuses?

Post by LandMarine47 » Sat Jul 20, 2013 11:40 pm

I have thought up some bonuses for BA 2 hope you like em :)
1. Weapons upgrade
Your men receive a weapons upgrade giving them more Accuracy Range and AT grenades are stronger. (Perhaps an animation showing troops with K-98's upgrade to G-43's MP-40's to STG 44's MG 34 to MG 42 LMG)
2. Mobilization
You can mobilize a squad of Conscripts/Volksgrenadiers/other axis troops (Finnish/Italian/Romanian/Hungarian) to the Front Line
3. Patrol the Skies
For 1 or 2 turns a fighter will patrol the skies and try to stop any close air support.
4. Order 227 (Russians only)
Your men are not allowed to retreat there by removing suppression penalties. The unit will fight until it dies. You are not allowed to move the unit back a tile (infantry only)
5. Supplies
when a unit runs out of ammo give it supplies so it can fire again!
6. Sniper
Use this ability to kill a soldier inside a enemy unit. (25% chance of missing)
7. Grenades
A Regular Infantry soldier can throw a Grenade at a target atleast 2 Tiles away
8. Smoke Grenades
Throw a smoke grenade to cover your movement
9. Red Smoke
Use red smoke for more accurate Artillery/Air Strikes
That's what I've thought of. Feel free to tell me what you think
Thanks LM

I'm mean like one unit looking at another unit with each of the in separate buildings. I don't think you need a bionic arm for that :roll:

Can we add Ramming? Basically the equivalent to an assault for tanks :) it will either destroy or heavily damage each other. Kinda like in COH 2

Is there any historical justification for this? I don't imagine this being part of basic training for tankers :)

I'd be surprised if there were more than a handful of tanks taken out by collision with the enemy over the whole war!

Good idea, but I think that a tank can only ram lighter tanks and others

Well if we are going to be picky, just at Kursk and some Kiev Scenarios. That's when the Soviets still couldn't openly engage the new Panzers the Germans deployed. After that the monsters came....

Adding Katusha rocket barrage would be cool

I was thinking it would be the equivalent to a Calliope for the Russians, but they were very inaccurate so it's could go both ways in my opinion
