Saving Red Star Core Force?

Is it possible to save the Red Star core force towards the very end of the Moscow scenario?

I cannot seem to figure out how to save it. Probably something overlooked on my part but I would appreciate help (and screenshots) on how to do it if possible.

Re: Best way to 5-star a submarine?

I just checked on the save at the very end of my US Navy campaign I'm doing for an AAR. I have a save just before Japan surrendered. Some tactical bombers reached 5 stars by the end because they typically took little damage. My artillery did not reach 2 star because they took no damage, had to move,...

Re: Best way to 5-star a submarine?

Can someone direct me to a discussion on the advantages/disadvantages of elite replacements? If the advantages are worth it, the impact seems subtle.

Thanks!

Re: Cheat codes

This game was back on track after 2-3 additional turns. Hopefully a one-time fluke. Never had that happen to me. I've used Orbital Command when playtesting AARs, tech choices, and similar things. To avoid the problem I suggest: 1] creating a new save game under a specific new name. 2] Using the cod...

Re: Cheat codes

Exactly! That's actually the main driver for including cheat codes in games, to allow for quick and easy testing (of both functionality and balance), and if some people prefer to use them in the game to have fun, all to the good. That is really interesting to know. I've used cheat codes in complex ...

A shocking revelation was made about General Wrigley's forced retirement by Pentagon enemies.

Battle of the Philippine Sea concludes: https://averysgameblog.wordpress.com/2019/07/09/philippine-sea-finale/ This update introduces scout pilot "Mewler" and his belief in the Scout Pilot Death Dance by Captain Skull. On a happier note, there are only three scenarios left in this campaign! :)

Re: Order of Battle goes East! Red Star has been announced!

I hope that the battles against Japan in the 1930s gets coverage. Those engagements have been overlooked by computer war games.

It would be sad if most of the pre-Nazi invasion stuff were the beatdowns on the Finns covered from the Finnish perspective in Winter War.

Pavlek: I got the game as a review copy for www.armchairdragoons.com where the review first appeared. You are welcome as developers to link to the review on your website or quote from it.

Detailed Review of Campaign and Scramble Start Game

After 67 edited screenshots and nine pages of text, the Battle of Guadalcanal has finished. There was a titanic conflict between two huge Japanese surface fleets, US Marine Air Corps, and the US Navy. https://averysgameblog.wordpress.com/2019/03/21/guadalcanal-part-5-a-huge-naval-battle-conclusion/ ...
