@Erik - Quick tip: Wherever you have those V1 Flying Bombs, in addition to setting them for Experience = 10, make them Aggression = 100. Else, as I noticed in St. Vith, some of them choose to land at an airfield.

Edit: Which they continued to do, some of them, on the first turn despite the heightened aggression (and assigning them land unit targets). However, they took off again on the second turn and attacked, which is fine.
It’s because the "V1" are OUT OF GAS and some will refuel at the airfield :
Ah, very good, terminator! Excellent input once again. I completely overlooked the fuel aspect. It's bizarre for the flying bombs to be landing for "a bit of a top-up on the old petrol, what?" Oops, wrong faction. More like "Dummkopf, du hast vergessen, den Tank zu füllen!" :)

I like the idea of using these Flying Bombs... but they do actually only few damage, don't they? :(
Yes, that is true. They are largely window dressing in a land scenario because their attack values against infantry and vehicles is so low, as compared to against naval units - a quick look at units.csv confirms this.

There is no V1 Flying Bomb in the game so Erik uses the Japanese MXY-7 Ohka which looks somewhat similar (although a rounder nose, a different jet engine assembly, and two tail fins instead of one) but to the best of my knowledge, this unit was created for the Rising Sun campaign and was used in naval scenarios. Hence their greater attack values against ships.

Once in a while, the MXY-7 Ohka gets lucky and inflicts a small amount of damage on a land unit but otherwise, they are ineffective. You would need dozens of them to make a difference and that would be tedious to play or even to watch. Erik threw them in as entertainment, perhaps, and gives the control of them to your AI ally so that you don't waste any time managing these flying firecrackers.

Indeed, and this is great! 8)

These weapons were terrifying, which is why I still wonder if, although they don't deal much damage directly, they shouldn't have a higher value of "shock" (something more like the engineers)... :wink: For this mainly psychological impact may still reduce the organization of the affected units...

:?: -> I don't think one could change this (i.e. giving them some "shock" impact vs land units) without changing the units.csv file and thus without having actually to create (or modify) a mod, could one?

Thanks, terminator.
I've never used the Set Unit Status before.
I learn something new on this forum every day.

Indeed, that is why we don't do so, because we would need to include a revised units.csv file with our download along with instructions on how to replace the default file with it. That would make it a mod and that is something that we (or at least, I) have limited interest in at this time. We live within the parameters of the game.

In Kokoda Trail, in the third scenario, called "Isuvura," even if I complete all the primary objectives, I keep getting a minor victory. Is there some sort of trigger issue? Playing on the medium diffciulty setting.

I suppose you mean "Isurava" not "Isuvura", sadly I didn't play this Kokoda Trail campaign, but it's a famous place for Australian army veterans this Isurava at Kokoda Trail, so if it isn't a typo also should be change to proper name

The Persia mission in the Afrika Korps campaign seems to have the issue of the optional objective to destroy 3 Soviet Tanks not being completed when the conditions are met, so I can't get a major victory and go to the Caucasus

OK - well once I took all 6 objectives, Rethel flipped over from not taken to captured.

Noticed a few more errors in the Germany 1939-1940 campaign. The Soviet duel scenario has the "establish a warsaw-brest supply line" flip from completed to failed on the final turn when I had taken the entire map. The objectives to destroy all armor and air units in the Maubeuge mission does not complete when the conditions are met. The side objective to destroy all fortifications of the maginot line has the same problem. Finally, the Wassigny objective to capture General Giraud by moving the auxiliary armored car to the designated location does not seem to work either. Still very satisfied with the campaigns, keep up the good work.
