Re: Feel the Wheel of Steel: Red Steel Review and Discuss

Alright, I guess I am running a bit behind you guys. But I'll let you be the vanguard taking the terrible losses while I stay in rear with the gear. Yeah, supply chain donkey for life, baby. :mrgreen: Anyways, Rhzev is surprisingly easy here. Note that I bought two T-34 flametanks as an upgrade to t...

Re: Feel the Wheel of Steel: Red Steel Review and Discuss

Well, Voronezh is the next city the Red Army will lose. Lucky for us, we can play the short counteroffensive in the north and enjoy a brief, elating victory before the city falls to the Wehrmacht. This is just 15 turns, so play it aggressively. At least the tank battle. As usual in OoB defensive mis...

Re: Feel the Wheel of Steel: Red Steel Review and Discuss

Well, another bruising defeat for the Red Army. My guess is they will keep on coming for a while. This mission is once again a fighting retreat which means you have to take a look at the map layout and determine where to best make your stand. There is an added twist though with taking out enemy tank...

Re: Feel the Wheel of Steel: Red Steel Review and Discuss

Alright, sorry for the delay. Bill Gates kept me in his secret underground bunker because I have discovered the truth about his plans. But now I am back, protected by my mighty tinfoil hat and in constant telepathic communication with bebro and Shards to hold off the mindcontrol waves. Rub those tem...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

@all: Thanks guys, now I have them pinned. I had to move the units around Kiev, the Italians in the south closer to the river and cover the river in the east with my tanks and AA. Even though this now works as intended, it is still a bit illogical. I mean, they were getting resupplied over my terri...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

I hope you can see that I have the whole Red Army surrounded, yet that one gigantic encirclement I am looking for seems to elude me. I have enabled the hex grid. Can somebody spot the mistake here? Thanks. Yes, you have three gaps in the line that need to be closed -- the southern road out of Kiev ...

@devs: Please let me automatically have a low res screenshot for uploading. It is a bit annoying crunching them myself. Would be a cool functionality.

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

Can you post some screen shots showing your encirclement? one thing to bear in mind is that there is a supply hex or 2 on cities in the eastern part of the map. Sure. And I took all supply hexes on the whole map. Either I cant see the forest for the trees here (quite possible) or this is a bug. Eit...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

Kiev is one of the easiest maps in the campaign in which to enact a grand encirclement; you have plenty of auxiliaries to use and the terrain favours the Germans (major rivers and thick forests are both impassable for supply trucks). Okay, I restarted from scratch. Again, around turn 10 I hold all ...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

I'll have to pick up OOB at some point - looks interesting Base game is free, DLCs have a discount right now, especially the older ones. I recommend the three Wehrmacht campaigns as a start. Also, our own master extraordinaire Erik ports all Panzercorps 1 campaigns to OoB for free. And there are qu...

Re: Why Encicrlement is confusing and doesn't work well IMO

Can someone please explain to me why all enemy units are not encircled? There is no path to a supply hex as I control all of the map. Does border of the map act as a supply hex too? Yup you answered your own question. Border supply. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VpeMgWR_Mk&feature=emb_title Okay...

Re: Feel the Wheel of Steel: Red Steel Review and Discuss

Okay, I pushed the Wehrmacht across the Crimea, but not all the way. This is a neat and fast mission if you keep the multiple objectives in mind. Deploy two fighters and a tacbomber IL 2 in the south, let them head towards the three bombardment targets. The destroyers move there as well. There some ...

Re: Feel the Wheel of Steel: Red Steel Review and Discuss

Its possible to change the german Infantry uniform skins in African scenarios yet to a more desert camo ? In Panzer Corps 2 it looks so amazing ! Or its possible to replace the skin textures diectly in an mod subfolder ? That would be realy better and easier for the modding community. Okay, Otto65 ...

Re: Feel the Wheel of Steel: Red Steel Review and Discuss

Okay, I went for a snowy hike, too. However, I did not deploy any tanks and relied on my snowshoe warriors instead. Even had eight army CP to spare I did not need. And finished in 22 turns. This mission is less about quick advances, I feel, but rather about systematically advancing under AT cover an...

Alright, I chased the Wehrmacht off towards Rhzev, too. And I got those tanks taken out as well, yeah. Soviet steamroller for the win. I'll post my deployment below. Note that I use a Red Steel core and so I have the heavy mortars at my disposal. To get those 3 vehicles before turn 5 is over, focus ...
