8.S) Warsaw Uprising [DV] Prestige = 117788 [enemy goes first] core activity: Minor reoverstrengthening. Repaired one TB and one fighter. Strategy: No tricks, just a standard urban enviroment so advance in a line backed up with LOTS of artilliary. Initially use the outer fortifications and a few tur...

Re: New Difficulty Level for Grand Campaign

2 comments I would not bother trying for a DV in Modlin At ANY level. Although it certainly can be done the losses are horrendous. But I would prolong it to the last turn and use it to build up experience on my air force by strafing for the fighters and other targets for my strat bomber. I would spe...

Re: GC42-45 EAST, replays and analysis, Field marshall

Thanks goose_2, well spotted. I think minsk44 was definately harder than vilna (even though the vilna 209 units destroyed is alot more than the minsk 149). I suppose the key, if any, to vilna is catching the northern attacks on the rivers. The second northern attack comes after you get near the nort...

Re: GC42-45 EAST, replays and analysis, Field marshall

7.S) Vilna [DV] Prestige = 16320 [+100 prestige per turn + enemy goes first] Core activity: Repair recon. Reoverstrengthen tanks. Strategy: I dont know of any tricks for this one. However it is a very long scenario; 30 turns so of course prolong it if neccessary for the prestige. It is a large map, ...

Re: GC39-41, replays and analysis, field marshall

This is an alternative way of doing GC39 scenario 1 ; posnan. It is a VERY elegant solution courtesy of braccada (from his current manstien playthrough) but it works very well at the lower levels like this. Notice how the game is completely closed down by about turn 5! by the simple trick of clearin...

Re: Berlin 1945

While I agree initially it looks terribly difficult at first there are a number of tricks to doing it that actually make it and the redux relatively easy. There are a couple of threads entirely devoted to it which go into details.


shouldnt this thread be in a different sub-forum?

5.S) Babruysk [DV] Prestige = 114982 [enemy goes first + 200 prestige per turn] Strategy: Small map, alot of close terrain specially in the north, more open terrain in the south. It is possible to take out a few of the (enormous amount of) enemy air units by good prepositioning of your air and AA un...

4.S) Mogilev [DV] Prestige = 130292 [capturable jadtiger + 300 prestige per turn + enemy goes first] Core activity: Lots of upgrades. 190a's ugrade to 190-d9. Although there is less ammo and feul the 2 increase in attack at minimal cost is worth it. Me 410a ugrade to FW190g the increase in attack an...

Re: GC42-45 EAST, replays and analysis, Field marshall

3.S) Poltava [DV] Prestige = 129521 [5 capturables] Strategy: A surprisingly easy scenario. Not as bad as it looks beforehand. A medium map. No fighters or tactical bombers to contend with but you cant deploy any planes. I will deploy some of my AA to give them more kills. You are given a few aux br...

question about rationalising AA units

Just done poltava. I want to rationalise my AA units as I now have far too many. I have a very strong heroed airforce so I dont need many. I already have 88mm, .....R+1 and M+1 405/1258/5.......(exp/kills/losses) 88mm, .....M+1..........251/207/4 Sd.kfz7/1..R+1..........399/407/0 Poltava gives 2x 88...

3.S) Jassy kishinev [DV] Prestige = 126655 [prestige per turn = 200 + capturable su122 + enemy goes first] Strategy: A straightforward defensive scenario. A big map. Mixed terrain. The map is split into 3 vertical strips by two rivers. In the first/left/main strip alot of the enemy units get funnell...

Re: GC42-45 EAST, replays and analysis, Field marshall

You now get a choice of two paths North (N) and South (S). I will choose to take the south path for the following reason. If you go for the south path you get jassy kishinev (which is quite easy) before poltava/mogilev. At the end of the campaign before budapest you get return to jassy kishinev whic...

Re: GC42-45 EAST, replays and analysis, Field marshall

I may try rommell next playthrough. I havent seen nico's buy your own army mod, i may try that if I can find it but it depends on how much you start with I dont want to be wasting the first few scenarios because i'm too short, might as well go back to normal start. Nikkivdd's revamp of GC is great a...

Re: GC42-45 EAST, replays and analysis, Field marshall

I have specifically done this at field marshall level a) because I am not that good, b) it is meant for newer less experienced players to get to know the tricks that work at the lower (unlocked) levels and c) because I hate taking big losses, I just dont enjoy the game then. To do this at the higher...

Re: GC42-45 EAST, replays and analysis, Field marshall

2) Korsun breakout [DV] Prestige = 125371 [capturable KV85 + free heroed fighter] Strategy: Another difficult scenario designed to suck prestige out of you. Bigger map, mixed terrain, bad weather. Again I dont think there is a trick to make this easier. The initial deployment is really very tricky a...

The enemy has lots of mobile AA which can be expensive. There are a few waves of air attack but not too much. There are alot of enemy plane...
