Re: Its a question of transport!! or two.

Dragoon Do you still not mind the extra 100 prestige for the 8 hex H/Track even with the soft cap rules? To me one of the issues is that if your deploying 8 infantry units that's 800 prestige more deployed than the basic 6 move H/Track, that's almost a Tiger I, also is it a onetime cost if taking in...

Re: 1943 East unit upgrades

I'm playing on FM yes, but as its my first play through usually play each scenario twice, with the second being my save for the on going campaign. As I'm pretty careful anyway there is no guarantee that the second run will go better than the first, but it does give me a general feel for what I will ...

Re: 1943 East unit upgrades

Ok so artillery from 43 onwards. Its been covered in some detail on other threads that artillery looses its effectiveness vs. tanks as you move into 43 and beyond, that said, if you keep artillery what do you prioritise in terms of effect? Personally I still look to maximise HA over SA, mainly becau...

Re: Which new content would you prefer?

I would actually like to see a more flexible, non-programmer friendly mod tool or scenario creator/editor. I agree with Scholo, that there is a lot to be gained from harnessing the community in obtaining content. I don't think it was this forum thread, but on one, I bought up the Civ 2 expansion Fan...

Re: Panzercorps Special Units

With the exception of Rudel 2.0 who you only get if you have deployed Recon Rudel in Minsk 41 and he survives until turn 3 or 4, all the other early ones 39-42 just appear on the relevant turn. Its not like captured units where you have to take a specific hex to get them, at the start of the turn yo...

Re: Panzercorps Special Units

Re: 1943 East unit upgrades

Hey Dragoon You must be telepathic, you just answered a question I was thinking about posting next :). I also agree with you totally that OS is un-necessary in 39 and most battles in 40 and also that for the first 150 exp especially early on you can choose to non elite reinforce. As I play on FM dif...

Re: 1943 East unit upgrades

Dragoon So an 6 initiative Infantry, in a close terrain hex capped at 1, will always have 100% of killed or suppressed enemy units cant shoot back. That makes the higher hard attack of the Grenadier43 even more important in keeping casualties down. A 4 star Grenadier43 would have an effective hard a...

Re: 1943 East unit upgrades

BNC I don't think I would want to continue without an experienced core, the more I see the value of experience to units the more I appreciate checking the forums here while I was still in 39. I have started each Most of the DLC, even with increased numbers of deployable units, with spare units at cl...

Re: AA units a bunch of questions.

Thanks Thor What air assets to deploy is for sure relevant to the discussion though how to use AA best was my initial concern. The 10 Air units I currently deploy as pretty much standard in early 43 are 5 Fighters, 1 Stuka (Rudel), 2 Me410 and 2 Strategic bombers (both 4star and OS to 14). The strat...

Re: AA units a bunch of questions.

One reason for my questions about AA units is that from late 42 onwards, it becomes increasingly difficult to just park fighters to provide air cover, its more than just increased AI air power its the SPAAG (T-90 etc.). You have to be increasingly careful about where and how you use your air units, ...

Re: 1943 East unit upgrades

Thor good question. I'm struggling to see how infantry benefit from initiative in almost all places I would choose to place them, hills with an initiative cap of 5 are actually almost an exception among close terrain, the other are generally capped at 1. If close terrain is infantry's friend and in ...

Re: 1943 East unit upgrades

Thor I would hope to never be using Me410 as first line air suppression units but more as I have the Bf110, as a finisher. The initial attacks would be with FW190's with the Me410 possibly adding to mass attack bonus, it would then at worst be attacking to remove the last 3-4 points of strength, as ...

Re: 1943 East unit upgrades

Hey BNC :).

If all that's left of my carefully nurtured 4Star core at the start of 43 is what you have left at start 44, i'll be devastated, 4 DLC of careful work destroyed in 11-12 scenarios, nooooooo!!!!

AA units a bunch of questions.

Ok, so protecting your units from AI air attack is a major issue once you get into late 42 and onwards, this requires planes supplemented by AA units. The issue is how many and what mix? Fighter planes have the advantage of being able to get to almost anywhere AI air power may appear and can most ea...

1943 East unit upgrades

Ok I finally finished 1942 East, I have to say well don to the Dev's, the last four scenarios from the start of Stalingrad to Tatsinskaya were just fantastic :), an excellent test of your tactics before the Russian horde's start. That said starting 1943 gives so many choices for upgrades, so it seem...

Re: Playing the AI - battle proven tricks

A Question

In later scenarios when the FW190 ground attack versions come out, would you move Rudel into one or keep him in a more specialised tac bomber. I'm sort of considering him in a 190 because he would double as ground attack and air superiority.

Your views?

Re: Panzer Corps on Steam - Success or not?

There are two big draws to me of using steam. The first has been mentioned, I don't have to worry about lost/corrupted discs when I have to upgrade my PC or reinstall the OS when it gets corrupted. A lot of the games if not all that I play, are more modern versions of older ones. This includes PzC, ...

Re: Panzer Corps on Steam - Success or not?

As I said earlier Steam is like Sainsbury's, just because your baked beans (game on steam ofc) doesn't mean you will sell loads, but if your beans aren't stocked by Sainsbury's you miss out on a lot of sales opportunities.
