Re: Saar offensive reference works.

Thanks. That video was interesting.

As far as those books go, I'm afraid that I'm addicted to my Kindle and just cant bring myself to read paper books anymore.

Saar offensive reference works.

I was wanting to read up about the French Saar offensive of 1939 and was wondering what books or other works the devs used in creating those scenarios.

Of course I'm open to anyone's reading suggestions on this topic, not just from the devs.

Re: AO 1939 scn tree is VERY controversial

So I am asking the question of questions: Who is enjoying the so far dlcs? And who would buy propably the next ones? I'll certainly buy all the DLCs. They are what, about 15 dollars apiece, spread over at least a couple of years. Heck my old lady and I had my sister and her husband over yesterday a...

Re: Spanish Civil War Tank Parade Art by arseniquez

Yes, Napoleon always tried to operate on interior lines and defeat his opponents one at a time. He tried and failed to pull it off against Wellington and Blucher. Mainly because Blucher refused to accept defeat after the battle of Ligny and marched to Wellingtons aid at Waterloo. Its possible he cou...

Re: SCW Ebro - need ideas

Italy had the misfortune to rearm to early. Their stuff was halfway decent by mid 30s standards. But by the eve of ww2 it was becoming obsolete and Italy could not afford to replace it. Those good Italian tanks in the game, are actually a little early if im not mistaken. I don't think they were deve...

Re: The First Nemesis: Comandante Vega

As for Nemesis in Russia... I'm not really aware of any Spanish fighting in Russia, except for the Blue Division siding with the Germans. So no we almost certainly won't see too many foreign Nemesis units by the time the campaign reaches Russia, though the choice of elite Soviet opponents is going ...

Re: Should Panthers be cheaper?

And in general, why do tanks have such very high SA? My guess would be that tanks have a high shock effect on soft targets. Most tanks also carry one or more HMG. These would contribute to SA. But I agree with Nexus - SA values on tanks do seem a little high. It's a well known historical fact the t...

Re: SCW - What's the Point?

Well, I liked the DLC, I liked the idea of starting in Spain, and I don't feel I'm alone in that. Also, declaring Spain a backwater where nothing of interest happened is pretty bold. If we are going to "rank" wars, Poland is the backwater conflict, with its whole 5 weeks of fighting (which isn't to...
