Dunkirk

24 May 1940 - We still have not re-established contact with High Command, but our scouts have detected the British Expeditionary Force has begun a genral evacuation of the Continent. My senior officers have convened and they believe the best way to stop the Allies is by destroying as many evacuatio...

Amiens

21 May 1940 - Our plan to divide the Allied armies is nearly complete, but one final objective remains to be accomplished. We must advance to the English Channel, seizing at least four objectives to ensure Allied lines are completely severed. Although the French forces and their allies are reeling,...

Re: Grand Campaign on Manstein (live streamed)

I see that working and definitely a good advise. However I want to try an encirclement taking a lot of secondary targets in the process. The Panzer IVs are superbly effective against the Dutch infantry at this point of time and I want to exploit that. Yours will be the fallback plan :)

Re: Do you savescum?

I like the normal dice simply because I do not want to play chess. Sometimes things go horribly wrong and as general you should be prepared for that ;) It is definitely doable without reloading, so like others already said, lower the difficulty and get better over time. It is perfectly fine to take ...

Re: Soviet Corps Campain

I found the balance quite good actually. Some maps definitely are quite tricky and depending on the difficulty level might require a second attempt, but that is fine. Overall expect to take some losses and reinforce during the mission, as Soviets you have more prestige to work with, than you are use...

Re: Grand Campaign on Manstein (live streamed)

Thanks :) Looking back I am glad I had some quite bad rolls here, just to show that it is not based on luck and can be done very consistantly and without any overly risky maneuvers. At The Hague I will try to outflank them and stop the reinforcements from the north. Basically a big pocket. I am pret...

Albert Canal

This is a battle of attrition against a stream of Allied and Belgian infantry units. So this map teaches how to deal with superior numbers the hard way. You need to do damage on your and the enemy turn using traps, luring and pushing units into unfavourable terrain and finally surround/suppress/surr...

Re: Grand Campaign Dual Let's Play - Lt Joker & Braccada

Thanks :) It's my first GC and so far the maps feel fresh and challenging. Some or actually most of the maps are masterpieces with a lot to explore and tinker with.

Wassigny

19 May 1940 - With the rapid success of our operation so far, the French are becoming more and more disorganized. We have learned that French general Henri Giraud himself is attempting to rally the French units to form a defensive line, which presents us with opportunity to strike directly at him i...

Eben-Emael

Just like in the real battle it is best to risk a massive attack on the center fortifications and hope the enemy is not prepared. A quick success in the center will give you the time reserves to deal with the rest of the map and get them before reinforcements happen. More tips: Do not underestimate ...

Stonne

17 May 1940 - Our successful crossing of the Meuse has not gone unnoticed by the French. We are receiving reports that large armoured formations with infantry and air support are closing in on Sedan. Maintaining control of this city and it's vital crossings is of the utmost importance, so I must re...

Re: Beginner Friendly Content

I think falling one or two turns short is simply part of the package or part of the fun in Panzer Corps. Try again, get better and get them. On the other hand if you just want to enjoy a moderate challenge lower the difficulty level. In my opinion this are two different approaches where in the first...

Sedan

15 May 1940 - The time has come to finally strike at France. While their forces scramble north towards the Low Countries or sit idly in the forts of their vaunted Maginot Line, we will strike where they least expect it; through the Addennes Forest at Sedan! My mission is to force my way across the ...

Re: What beats Tiger II?

Soviet conscripts work as well :) Even in the open. Block the movement and drain their ammo and the Tiger is not so though any more. Granted they are better against the heavy AT units like the Elephant, but it still works good enough.

Narvik

Narvik ended up being a though fight - much harder than expected. The real issue is neither the Royal navy nor the massive concentration of enemy forces in and around Narvik. It is the lone infantry units waiting on the way to Narvik that really put up a fight. Hard to kill and an effective speed bu...
