Re: No reward for saving the 6th Army

So if I have 106 CP for Kursk, am I, or am I not getting the bonus CP for Caucuses and Winterstorm?

Re: Unit Navigator Tool

Well the truck is tracked, so that might help with off road terrain.

Re: Panther and Tiger too expensive

Tigers are definitely worth it, but Panthers are an RP sink. The extra point of movement IS NOT worth the extra repairs you will be making on account of the reduced armor. That said, you will need to upgrade eventually. After a while, the Panzer IV's don't cut it anymore, and you'll be spending as m...

Re: Unit Navigator Tool

Found my new time waster, for when I can't play. Thanks for this!

Re: Panther and Tiger too expensive

Okay, so I'm definitely not losing any *extra* RP's by moving before repairing.

My worry was that it was costing me more RP per point repaired.

Re: Panther and Tiger too expensive

I just had to drop 98 RP for two points of elite repair when I put my Tiger a little too far forward. Efficiency loss from "unreliable" and an M3 Stuart to the face cost me; and I haven't even played the next turn yet, so it may not be over. When repairing units, is there a cost difference between r...

Re: Panzerkrieg-Onto the Plains of Russia! (Review and Discu

Do STuG's support adjacent units the way anti-tank guns do? I am considering switching some of my panzers for them, while I still have time to get them some experience. Yes, they behave like classic AT guns Color me intrigued. Not sure if I can afford to ditch my panzers for them and still get Tige...

Re: Panzerkrieg-Onto the Plains of Russia! (Review and Discu

I just replayed Stalingrad, and that scenario seems to be pretty well-crafted, because no matter how I play it, it ends up being a meatgrinder. The artillery east of the city seem to be the most significant factor in this. My first time through, I used my air force to knock out the barges and artill...

Re: AI refuelling planes at airfields adjacent to player uni

Reminds me of accounts from the Eastern front, where German pilots had to scramble and GTFO because Russian ground forces were bearing down and shelling the fields.

Re: Panzerkrieg-Onto the Plains of Russia! (Review and Discu

I've been dealing with the VVS by putting a heavily-escorted stuka out to act as a decoy. He gets hammered, but the attackers get hit by the two escorts. On the following turn, the stuka gets the hell out, and the escorts can generally attack the Russian fighters without losses. The decoy stuka gets...

Re: Panzerkrieg-Onto the Plains of Russia! (Review and Discu

I'm not having any negative issues with the waffen SS ii specialization. I always play carefully, so I had a nice chunk of funds set aside for them. Once I started earning 6 RP per turn for them, I was able to save up to upgrade to the 8-range artillery, and then a few scenarios later picked up some...

Re: scenerio approaching stalingrad

Ah, okay. So it is like an unlisted bonus objective. Those turn threshholds are fairly low, and I tend not togo out of my way to hunt units down to the death. Rather I whittle them down to 3 or 4 strength and let them fall back. It creates congestion for the enemy units, and when I catch back up to ...

Re: scenerio approaching stalingrad

Interesting. I just played that scenario and never got an opportunity to get a KV1. You were not fast enough. I was neither and therefore got no KV. For the same reason I didn't get the T-34 in Kharkov '42. That is strange. I have finished nearly every scenario with plenty of turns to spare. Perhap...

No, it's Kalach, the one after Vornonezh and before Caucuses.

Re: Purpose of the medical unit?

The bautruppe is at least useful as a 1CP engineer for defense scenarios.

Not like I had anything else to spend the spec points on.

Re: Any advantage in finishing a scenario early?

I'd swear that I am getting the RP's that I would have gotten if I had played out the turns. I tested this a while back, and everything came out the same.

Cannot Import Core to US Pacific

When it prompts me to import my core from the Boot Camp campaign, I choose my army and it loads to a blank "map table" screen, with no UI.
