Placing a unit inside the town gave me the T-34 - nothing special - so there may be a unit limit after all !?

Beware that capturing the appropriate town on the last turn will not yield the captured unit. Captured units spawn at the beginning of the next (full) turn.

Please dont quote, it deactivates the improvised spoiler-shield :wink:
As I feared, you get drowned in tanks. Although this is Panzer Corps, I would prefer it, when tanks really matter and stand out, as it was in reality. In this game the infantry stands out, because you have so few of them (I dont even have 1 basic infantry unit, all specialists - Pioniere and Paras).

Thank you for the consolidated list! I see I`ve missed 3 tanks so far. But I have no regrets tbh since I already had enough captured equipment, by comparison. Plus, I wouldn`t have wanted a second Matilda anyway.

That said, I`m not sure what`s up with all the "spoilers". It`s a thread about captured units and people should expect to see this being talked about inside. Underlined or plain in sight, nobody forces the viewers to read the lists or to look up the towns positions on the map. Someone should just put the word spoiler in the title of the thread and everyone else write plainly so we(I at least :D ) don`t have to keep on selecting text to see if anyone has written more than is visible.

@Mark50: Yes, or if at least spoiler tags would work.

8 captured tanks in GC41 is really a lot, I only deploy a portion of my tanks now, considering I also have SE tanks which do not use up deployment slots.

Hm, I assumed the big gap would be enough.

Mark50 is right, what else would you expect in a captured units thread, so I changed the color to default.

Iirc, you are only able to get 6 tanks, since 2 of them are in the missions where you have to choose a path.

Yes, just like the other core units you can disband them.

That's the best use for most of them.

According to his list above there are 7 tanks in the "mandatory" scenarios plus on in each of the 2 alternative scenario groups. It makes a total of 8 no matter what course you take.

Does this work the same during missions and in between missions or do you have to disband the captured units in between missions to get the money?

how can you be sure there is not more capturable units in various maps? since there is many defense missions you probably havent tried to capture all towns on all maps because they would be too hard to win without focusing on prime mission target.

The list of captured equipment for the `39 and `40 campaigns was given by one of the developers. Why doubt it? The list for the `41 campaign was put together by regular users, but it seems about right. I haven`t conquered every map entirely myself, but I do capture every city/airfield as a rule. Others might do even better and generally with plenty of people reporting they`ve probably all been covered. Slim chances there are more of them than posted above.

Open the maps in the editor and you will see where a captured unit will pop up.

I captured Zolotonosha to get the T-34/40 (Kiev branch) but I made the mistake to send in italian aux troops and didn´t get the captured tank. (btw it was more than 1 turn before I captured all victory flags)
Therefore I assume that aux nation troops wont trigger the capture of bonus units :?


edit: I just found out that the unit was in my core in the following map. Strange it didnt appear right after the capture like I´m used to it usually.

Suggestions for some extra equipment

Post by VonHob » Thu Feb 02, 2012 2:05 pm

I like the idea of E boats being available to the Axis forces. I can see them being very handy in the Sealion invasion.

Re: DLC: Captured Units

Post by marsellus » Fri Feb 17, 2012 2:34 pm

My suggestion is that all captured units couldn't be able to upgrade into base units. In time they would started to be useless and fall out of the core army. That would also prevent from creating unrealistic army using more captured than "out of factory" units. In present (for example in 1941 campaing) captured soviet tanks are becoming too strong value - imho. Maybe there should be a maximum percentage of captured units that army can absorb but probably that would make a need to create another type next to core and SE units what maybe wouldn't be good. Just an idea...

P.S.
Sorry for all mistakes - my english isn't very good :wink:
