German Commander List

Post by Horst » Tue Jan 09, 2018 11:05 am

It’s unfortunately not always clear enough that there are sometimes more chances to gain the same unique commander once in Blitzkrieg (BK), Panzerkrieg (PK) and Endsieg (ES). Most commanders from the Sandstorm (SS) campaign can also be earned in Endsieg.

Here is a list where, when and how to obtain the German commanders:

I meant I haven't found Günther in the scenarios of the BK and PK campaigns.
I've also not checked for every (hidden) objective if there is any commander unlocked. Just tell me if something is missing in the list.

The editor shows me Gerhard Barkhorn in PK07, Caucasus, under the "Establish air superiority" objective.
I also forgot Barkhorn appearing in Dunkirk.
