Vietnam 66-75?

I just picked this game up for iPad and am looking forward to playing this weekend. This is obviously a premature question, but would I be correct in assuming that since the title of this game is Vietnam '65, can we eventually expect to see Vietnam '66, '67, '68, etc., kind of like how we saw Panzer...

I'm glad you thought so. I bought the game, and I'm constantly being asked to rate the app, so I thought I would do so here.

Re: Versus Panzer Corps

There really is no comparison between Frontline and Panzer General/Panzer Corps. Ultimately, Frontline is a soul-less, half-baked, buggy Panzer Corps wannabe. I am not saying the game is totally unplayable, or non-enjoyable, but it leaves a lot to be desired. I have played Frontline extensively on i...

Re: Allies, who you going to play first?

True, but you have to look at replacement/repair costs for the weaker German armor units. When you are up against an IS-1 or IS-2, a Marder III, or a Hetzer, or a Pz III or IV are going to get mauled. Replacing those losses costs prestige. Tigers, and Tiger IIs have more survivability. They cost mo...

Re: Allies, who you going to play first?

I am against handicapping the game to shut off a player's ability to create the kind of core he/she wants. Exactly my point :) Im also against this but at the moment find creating a core I want impossible. I cant play the game using weaker units as I cant have more of them to balance my force. The ...

Re: Allies, who you going to play first?

1 tiger is probably more like one of the schwere Panzerabteilungen. so bataillon size. at least that scale makes sense for most maps I guess. But that is pure speculation on your part. The devs of this game (or Panzer General for that matter) never gave any indication as to the unit scale. That's j...

Re: Allies, who you going to play first?

I think when you play a historical war game, you oughta learn something, including something about the constraints that commanders faced at the time. Some of these constraints are already modeled in the game, others aren't. The constraint that is not modeled that causes the most griping is the fact...

Re: Allies, who you going to play first?

The only realistic way would be making the good units very very expensive. Historically the army would have used only the best stuff, always. It only used other stuff because it was cheap, available and easy to get. A commander couldn't just ask for the best stuff always, on the other hand a presti...

Re: Allies, who you going to play first?

I've enjoyed the PzC series immensely so far, but I think the designers really missed it with Allied Corps. My experience has been similar to Zhivago's: By the time I got to D-Day, I usually had cores with Crocodiles, and maybe one or two Sherman Fireflies, but I also had the US M-18 Hellcat, which...

Re: Grant HA same as Stuart?

To be honest: No thanks. After "World of Prototypes... err tanks" I don't need another game that is full of tanks there were never built and never going to be built. I need no Panther II that was canceled and would never have existed, and surely no E100s or Indien Panzers or T57 or whatever. There'...

Re: Grant HA same as Stuart?

As I said in another thread, it would have been nice if the allies could have put the Sherman Firefly gun on the Croc (or even Churchill) chassis. Then you would have a formidable tank. They actually tried to do just that, but the development was very slow because they practically had to re-design ...

Re: Grant HA same as Stuart?

Kevin, I agree with you on the availability, I was a bit surprised to find the Sherman unavailable for Second Alamein, when they were first used. And the Churchill is overpowered at this stage, it may not have much firepower but it is very tough. I presume you know about the El Alamein 'Kingforce',...

Re: Allies, who you going to play first?

Sounds like there will be no Pacific Corps (judging by the arrangement of icons on the opening screen there is space for one more icon (the Red Star) below the Allied (west) icon. Well THAT would be the easiest problem to solve. But I guess you're right. It's probably the last main campaign. Maybe ...

British. {snip} I hope to find more Commonwealth troops in there.

Re: Allies, who you going to play first?

Well the American forces should be a little "green" in comparison. After all the war entry was late and the main combat in european mainland started fro them at a time when british and german and other involved nations had been fighting for years already. So it would be unrealistic for US troops to...

Re: Allies, who you going to play first?

Will of course start from the beginning, so 1940 it is. Will try to have a balanced British/American force eventually, with a larger American presence as time goes by. That can be tricky. Once you get to the time the Americans come into the game, you already have some pretty seasoned UK forces. I b...
