Re: Red Star Lend Lease Techs

The most useful LL equipment to me is the... M3 Lee, is it? The light tank with speed 10. It's a lot better than the Soviet equivalent. Sure, light tanks get eaten up by german anti-tank and such if you aren't careful but I enjoy having one or two for quick strikes at artillery or to pocket a bunch ...

Re: Red Steel Review/ Feedback

Oh, I agree the UI is kind of wonky but it didn't bother me too much. I wish there was a UI size between "too big" and "too small", though.

Re: Red Steel Review/ Feedback

Just finished Red Steel on the 4th difficulty which is what I usually play. Really enjoyed it, it's nice to get to play the other side of a lot of battles that we've seen from the German point of view ad nauseum, particulary Stalingrad as mentioned in the original post! And the sheer amount of point...

Re: Red Star Lend Lease Techs

I got the first lend lease objective in scenario 1 of Red Steel! Definitely an interesting way of doing it and makes spending the spec points more worthwhile.

Red Star Lend Lease Techs

Is there some advantage to spending spec points on the lend lease techs in the DLC that I'm missing? The limiting factor on equipment is the supply points or CP or whatever its called to deploy tanks into the scenario unlike in real life where lend lease equipment was IN ADDITION to the Russian stuf...

Red Star scenario question

I've always thought the OoB series are the best games in the panzergeneral-type genre but I somehow missed that Red Star was released! Thankfully I saw Red Steel and picked them both up a few days ago, so I'm getting caught up now. Having a lot of fun playing stuff we haven't seen a lot of (Russa-vs...

Re: Entwicklung Series Specialisation Error

So far so good. I've got an atom bomb just circling around the battlefield waiting for a good target and am about to start the Calais final scenario. One question: Should both the Maus and E-100 be purchasable in the final scenario? I'm not sure whether to make them both available in the csv or just...

Re: Entwicklung Series Specialisation Error

Has the "fix" been applied yet? Because I just got to the Antwerp scenario, where the date is supposed to be Feb 1 1945 and (I believe) allow me to research the atom bomb but the game thinks it is Feb 1 1944 instead, which is weird since I've already researched the Vampire thing which isn't availabl...

Advanced Aeronautics

Does anyone know how this specialization works in Endsieg? I assume it means you can buy ME262 and the like earlier, but so far I'm at Anzio and still just chugging along with the FW190s. Although for some reason I can't seem to buy the advanced FW190s anymore, only the kinda crappy early ones. Good...

Re: Entwicklung Series Specialisation Error

It's odd how the bug shows up differently for everyone.

For example it has just hit me but before the ANZIO scenario, not the other ones listed. Cannot purchase any specializations, even ones from dates years in the past.

Re: sd kfz 135/1 sandstorm

Actually I don't think we can even say that; the tank in the posted example isnt strong enough to damage the enemy so we don't know if there is a defender buff. The original topic I posted this bug in is here: viewtopic.php?f=372&t=81245 So you can see what it looks like in practice. The predicted c...

Re: sd kfz 135/1 sandstorm

Hey, at least the enemy tank doesnt seem to get a defensive bonus anymore from this skill! That's... an improvement I guess?

Mountain troops - ability!

So the gebirgsjaeger and alpini troops seem to be able to move more quickly through bad terrain than normal infantry. Which makes sense because, uh, the name. But is there some way to know this without sorta noticing it empirically? Like an ability or property that shows up in the description that I...

Re: A long beach. With trenches. Sandstorm - Review and Disc

nota bene: the alternative to the italian AT/AA gun is probably spending those points on artillery. Which is good but it *is* possible to overdo it.

Re: A long beach. With trenches. Sandstorm - Review and Disc

Eh, I don't think you guys are fully taking into account the two advantages of the Italian mobile AT. First, it can switch from a very good (but defensive, yes) AT to a very good AA. This is useful situationally but still useful. Second, and very importantly, it uses ITALIAN req points and not germa...

Re: Difficulty Levels are out of balance

That said, Sandstorm strikes me as more difficult than previous theaters. Which is a good thing! I play on the 4th (2nd hardest) difficulty and I couldn't take Tobruk in #1 which was quite refreshing. And I'm still not sure I'll be able to take Tobruk without save scumming in the Crusader scenario (...
