That Sturer Emil will become nasty with its 12.8 cm Flak 40. Only useful for the rear protection though due lack of armor. In PC, such unit should have a very high initiative to avoid damage, but such stat unfortunately doesn’t exist in OOB.
I hope this unit gets the limited replacement and noPurchase trait. Two built SPGs don’t make a whole unit yet. I wouldn’t like too many experimental/prototype early/mid-war units without limits in the game.
The 3.7 cm barrels of the Ju 87G look more like 7.5 cm with that thickness. They also don’t show the muzzle brake of the Flak 18.
Can’t wait to see these units in action!
That Sturer Emil should be an aux unit, otherwise its overpowered. Would be pretty good in a defensive role with the OoB system, just put your Wehrmacht around it in a star-shaped pattern and you're safe.
And maybe those Ju87g barrels do look a bit thick.
But as long as its fun, I dont care that much about minor details. Would be great if HeavyInf would get their respectively correct Machineguns, though, instead of just M2 Brownings for everybody.
Oh yeah, please take your time with mission design. With the OoB supply system, there should be ample opportunities for dramatic battles and actual Blitzkrieg strategies which you cannot do with the Panzercorps rules and engine. Fighting retreats, pincer moves, blowing up bridges behind you while you consolidate for a counterattack - these were all things that happened in 42-43.
