Re: GC Barbarossa to Berlin

Jassy Kishinev Well that was a surprise. I had thought the Romanians would at least slow the Russians down in the west whilst I destroyed them to the north of my deployment areas and in the centre. How wrong can you be? The Romanians were simply overrun. I made good progress in the centre but north...

Re: Grand Campaign; Learning to use a diverse force.

Interesting. I am also finding that I am losing prestige during battles and then clawing it back with that awarded for a win. I guess there just isn't much prestige (ie, resources) left in Germany by this stage of the war. I am still finding my Elefants will go through just about any tank the Russia...

Re: Grand Campaign; Learning to use a diverse force.

As a result of this win, we got two free 12.8cm flaks and one Wirbelwind. We didn’t get the second Wirbelwind as the battle victory conditions triggered before I could assault the last armoury. I’m okay with that though, I have far too many units and not enough deployment slots anyway. These units ...

Re: GC Barbarossa to Berlin

Korsun Breakout Quite interesting. Break through the dug in Russian units nearby,, then blast through the hordes of tanks on the plains beyond. No real problems as it turned out. I had thought of several cunning plans but in the event, by the time I had eliminated the units defending the initial gr...

Re: Grand Campaign; Learning to use a diverse force.

On to 1944: 1944: Korsun Pocket. A rude awakening to 1944, stolen away from my ‘rest’ and refit. The 12.8 Flak became available and both 8.8’s was upgraded as I had come to the opinion that the switching to AT mode was no longer a priority and combat even in AT mode was now not in our favour, but A...

Re: GC Barbarossa to Berlin

I looked back at my Manstein playthrough and it shows those first 3 battles of 44 were brutal. It does not really ease up until Poltava...blessings on your endeavors. Thanks for the heads up. Korsun Pocket continued Things went fairly quiet during the next few turns. Thanks to the 2 gifted reinforc...

Re: Grand Campaign East core.

Thank you for the answers. I've got a mix of units that I really like. What type do you not deploy when you have to leave them in reserve? Thanks again. Depends on terrain, what I think I am facing and what the objectives are. As an example, I have just started Korsun pocket with 33 deployment slot...

Re: GC Barbarossa to Berlin

Korsun Pocket No longer a blind playthrough as I had quite a bit of difficulty with this one and eventually had to do some reading of previous AAR's. The difficult bit is anticipating where that attacks will come from. Then you get a certain amount if time to deal with them and redeploy to meet the...

Re: Grand Campaign; Learning to use a diverse force.

280mm K5 – An artillery train unit. I wonder if this might be useful for some long-range bombing? The restricted mobility is an issue though, but perhaps I shall grab one to use in certain scenarios. PzII Luchs (Recon) – I read that this was a successful recon unit, however I think for this game it...

Re: Grand Campaign; Learning to use a diverse force.

I'm back. :) I bought two new units for this battle, a new SPAA (7/2) to try and build experience. This was a solid investment as it saw plenty of action but its lack of experience meant it didn’t score too many hits. The other purchase was a new Bf109G to stay on escort duty for my bombers. A huge...

Re: GC Barbarossa to Berlin (blind)

Kiev 43 Looks fairly obvious from the deployment map. Hold the centre of Kiev with a line of infantry backed by artillery (my +1 range Nebelwerfer 30 was awesome here) and send a strong force south to mop up the Soviet paras, crush the armour that will be heading west to reinforce them, cross the r...

Re: Grand Campaign East core.

Yes, the deployable number drops to 33 at the beginning of 44.

You do get another SE slot in 44, bringing the SE limit up to 7. It will go up to 8 at the start of 45.

Re: GC Barbarossa to Berlin (blind)

I hope this detailed response is helpful. Extremely helpful. Thank you very much. I had discounted Grenadiers due to their lower movement but I see the reasoning and will try them out. The SE infantry were proving useful and had good experience by the time decent panzers became available. They are ...

Re: GC Barbarossa to Berlin (blind)

Campaign update. I stopped posting in this thread at Zhitomir. Since then things have generally gone well. 41 was wrapped up quite comfortably and 42 started well. I was apprehensive about the Stalingrad scenarios but those up to the end of Stalingrad Docks went well. Maximum use of artillery to su...

Re: GC Barbarossa to Berlin (blind)

Sounds like you have a pretty good handle on things...I am trying to understand the specifics of your question. Could you be more specific about what you are asking? I'm not entirely sure TBH. I just have this feeling I am missing something (or several somethings) quite important. I have some speci...

Re: GC Barbarossa to Berlin (blind)

I have decided to come back to this thread as I have continued playing (currently just finished 43 and about to start 44 at Korsun Pocket). I had left it as I did not find I had much to say about the scenarios and have not managed to carry out my intention to learn how to produce videos (getting sid...

Re: Messina.

Actually, they turn against you the next scenario after Messina. I've often wondered if its the exact Italians from your core you have to fight, or just generic ones? That's something I hadn't thought of. I suppose you could test it by keeping one or more Italian units in your reserve until the Ita...

Re: Grand Campaign; Learning to use a diverse force.

They could have been useful to try and keep my army under the soft cap but I am at 100% and resigned to it staying at that. It isn't explained properly in the patch-notes, but if the tooltip says "100%" doesn't that mean you're still getting 100% of prestige? I think that has to be the case because...

Re: Grand Campaign; Learning to use a diverse force.

I've not tried Kursk South. North was not too bad. It really comes down to the title of this thread, using a diverse force, ie a mix of tanks, infantry, artillery and other support units, including air assets, tailored to the terrain and objectives. I have just finished Prokorhovka and obtained a de...

Decisive Victory! On to Kursk. (I have now hit the soft cap, 95% on the icon for this battle, which is a massive worry as I didn’t think I had many super-units…) New Unit Analysis: (Available midway through Orel): Panzerwerfer 43: I had been looking forward to this, but 1 extra move, less shooting ...
