Thank you from me too. This is an excellent thread to answer various daunting questions about the game. It makes it easy to find the answer.
Old Timer Panzer General fan. Maybe a Volksturm soldier now. Did they let Volksturm drive Panzers?

I've had to post this one a few times.
People asking about 2 range direct fire units, when the answer is (somewhat) handled by the initiative system.

I should know this but, how do you deploy paras at the start on the ground?

I don't think you can.
The search functions is not working for older posts. I'm sure there are a couple of threads speaking about this.

Thanks VP, are you sure?

I would hope that this would be corrected with subsequent versions if it is the case.

I have done several advanced searches and cannot seem to find an answer to these questions regarding core units.

1) Is there a way to add to your core units? In my first playthough when I get to the Modlin Sceranio I was so short on core units that it was not possible to win.
2) Is my only option to start the campaign over and husband my core units in an effort to make it to the later scenarions.

I have been playing at the General difficult level

Thanks

The maximum number of units you can have in your core army is set in the beginning of each scenario. In some scenarios you are "allowed" to have more core units than others.
You cannot have more core units than that limit set in the beggining. Each time one of your core units is killed you can replace with another. You can buy units with prestige points.
If you haven't enough prestige points or any unit in your reserve, than you cannot replace the killed units.
So yes, it's better to use carefully your units, like any good general. :mrgreen:

If you're not sure how many core units you are allowed to have or how many you have left - during the game - hover your mouse over the purchase button (the $ sign) and it will show you.

I have a question that I can't seem to find a answer for.
Does entrenchment increase for a unit, the longer the unit stays on a hex.

Yes, to a maximum for the terrain type. Look at the terrain table in the game library, which tells you the terrain effects.
