Re: Panzercorps Special Units

Oleh Dir is a one unit blitz . . . He cleans out towns, artillery positions, AA. Nothing seems to get in the way. If I'm using a lot of infantry in a scenario, Oleh Dir will be the last infantry unit I move because you can commit him to targets that are out of reach of your other infantry units. Yo...

Re: Panzercorps Special Units

Oleh Dir is a one unit blitz. I overstrength send him out with a recon unit and some occasional fighter support. He cleans out towns, artillery positions, AA. Nothing seems to get in the way. He made it to Minsk in Minsk 41 by turn 5. If he just had extra ammo. Rudel must be the equivalent of a one...

Re: Russian Tanks in Soviet Corps

This game will certainly present challenges presenting the weakness of the Russian forces early even though better equipment was available. One way to counter this is to limit the size and make up of your purchasable core. The liberal use of SE units could go a long way. Instead of a starting core o...

Re: '43 East v '44 East

Budapest is fun. I find that you have about 6 turns to get some Germans into the city to have a chance at rescuing enough unit. I put my fastest units, panther, JP's, SP Art and half track infantry, to the North and go as fast as I can around the hill and down the road to the city. As long at the Ru...

Re: US scenarios ideal force composition (yet another thread

The first challenge is getting ashore so whatever planes you have should have a decent naval attack as there are quite a few US naval units. Nothing sucks more than losing 5 SP of Tiger II's to a cruiser shot :(. As far as the landing area you can do it any way you like. If you land everything at or...

Re: Need Advice on Depth, etc.

My daughter 'surprised' me with the game this past Christmas, the first time in 18 years she ever considered buying me a computer game :). At first I was like thanks but inside I didn't think I would like it since it had been out a while and it never seemed to excite me. Once I began playing it I fo...

Re: "Actual" sizes for various units?

Only unit size that makes any sense is bataillon, given the equal basic strength of armour, artillery and AA (10). Everything above does not make sense at all - there where no AC units or AA units in regimental size. Regards, Thorsten No even battalions don't make sense. There were roughly 17-19 ba...

Re: Building a historically authentic core/corps

if you build a core based on 1 unit = 1 bataillon then a panzer division wouldn't exactly be very strong. Yes it would not be as strong as if each unit represented a platoon but it would be stronger than if each unit represented a regiment. The thing is it doesn't matter what each unit represents, ...

Re: Building a historically authentic core/corps

How do you guys actually build up these cores. It's fine to see the final core but early on you have to buy unit by unit and can't deploy that many. Do you start with one division, then add Air units until you can deploy the next division and buy it in bulk or do you keep adding unit by unit despit...

Re: Amoured cars OP?

Wouldn't adjusting the ROF for 1 and 2 man turrets result in a weakening of their attacks? An RoF penalty on 1 or 2 man turrets could reflect the reduced efficiency of having crew doing multiple jobs, or you could adjust initiative down. Some of the early German tank initiative ranks quite poorly a...

Re: Amoured cars OP?

While I agree with Tarrak on the firepower versus armour equation - armoured cars came in varieties armed up to a 47mm gun - except the Dingo, which was nothing than a tin can, I still broadly disagree with the design values of a lot of non German tanks and ACs. What made German armour lethal despi...

Re: Need help with the DLC Grand Campaigns

I have excellent units and leader bonuses, but no matter how many Russian units I destroy, more powerful units just keep coming. Every battle turns into a grueling slugfest. Nothing I do in the current or prior campaigns/scenarios has any effect on Russian production, nor does it alter the ultimate...

Re: SE unit question

Is the SAS unit bugged in Allied Corps? I ask because they're supposed to be elite paratroopers, and they have a parachute in their icon, but the game doesn't allow them to be placed in air transports during the deployment phase, which really defeats the purpose as they just function as regular inf...
