Kriegsmarine Narvik: How to do the ground battle?

I only just got there, and practiced the sea battle already. But the ground assault seems to be the issue. My first transport, well, not sure if I should unload it right away or cruise on. I botched it initially and then just sank Repulse and Renown out of spite! ;)

If you would like to share insights how you did the ground attack on Narvik, sharing this vital info would be greatly appreciated, dear Commanders!

What I did was to send in 1 CL, and 2DD up the fiord to escort the transport. Use them to clear the fijord and then land your troops on the bridge hex. Bombard the troops in Narvik and send the infantry in. Exit the ships from the fijord to join the main fleet.

Yeah, guess that's is how its meant to be. Sending the transport right in without worrying for the escort to catch up was asking for it...^^

for safely transport to the NArvik. You need one destroer and one crusier for example Admiral HIper and...it will quite easy to land your troops near narvik..

It's a matter of time, but once that worked out, the enemy counter-attack wasn't much of a problem anymore.

I also made great use of a Fw 200 Condor, it helped bombing destroyers and light cruisers and does so much better than the Heinkels.
