Yeah Fallschirmjager vs tanks usually doesn't end very well. If you drop them too far behind enemy lines & don't have a plan to get help to them quickly, that's a guarantee. And mind you, this is still 1940. You don't stand any chance at all against the Russian tanks down the road.

My paratroopers usually have a short and unsuccessful career too.

The exceptions are Norway where the bad weather protects the transports from fighters, the Hague in 1940 if they all cluster round the field gun, in the 1941 Greece scenario where a strategic bomber and a para unit are good for taking Keramoti early on, and in Minsk 41 where the paras capture airfields so that the recon bombers can refuel.

I have had some limited success by dropping them immediately behind enemy lines during the initial attack but I'd usually be better off with an extra 105 field gun and some pioneers.

Indeed. Once you get past the first few Barbarossa scenarios, there's really not going to be any survivable AND useful opportunities for you to drop them IMO. That said, there's nothing at that point preventing you from switching them over to a Pioneer or Grenadier unit. You'll carry over any experience & heroes you've accumulated.

As some suggestions, instead of buying new paratroops, you may want to look into upgrading another infantry unit with a defense hero. The experience will be a help. Lastly, you can overstrength them to improve their survival chances if you're not already. Good luck!

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions.
Hollowlolo, long time no talk, I am honored to be your first post. ;-)

This is what I am starting Campaign 1941 with

13 total inf
3 green in with no stars including 2 Paratroopers and 1 Grenadier
1 1 star inf def +1 hero
9 2 star including +1 def hero, +1 spotting hero, +2 def hero, Oleh Dir, my 3 pioniere units with +1 initiative and 2 with +3 attack heros, +1 attack se inf

9 tanks
3 captured French tanks only the Souma with 2 stars and none have heros
2 SE Pz3f tanks with +1 and +2 def heros, Albert Kirscher in Pz4d, as well as +3 attack Pz4d, +2 def and +1 attack Pz3F's

1 2 star recon without a hero

2 2 star AT units without a hero

12 artys
4 with 3 stars, 7 with 2 stars, and 1 1 star arty none with heros

3 AA units
All with 2 stars, 1 with +1 range hero, and 1 with +2 attack hero, and 1 with no hero

6 Fighters
Heinrich Bar with 1 star, 1 with 3 stars, 4 with 2 stars one with a +2 attack and 1 with +1 spotting hero

4 tac bombers 3 with 3 stars and 1 with 2 stars, 1 with +1 movement hero, and 2 with +1 def heros, 1 with no hero

3 Fighter Bombers
Rudel tac bomber no stars, Helmut Lent with 1 star, 1 with 2 stars and no hero

2 Strat Bombers both with 2 stars

I think this is enough units and may only buy a few new ones going forward otherwise I am think I am going to concentrate on building the experience up of the units I have and moving forward with getting more experience.
I want a Decisive Victory for all scenarios in 1941, but know that some of the later scenarios can be quite difficult.
I will give it my best shot and will be trying some scenarios blind as I have not played them the first time I played through before my computer pooped on me.

Next time will be Operation Punishment in Belgrade

Next Zhurivka

From the looks of the map it looks like it is the other side of Kiev, based on that I will try to follow a similar strategy as I did here.

I could have fought this one so much smarter but all in all not bad for the 1st time, I have got to remember to take it slow and give the time to set up a proper defense for the assault that comes out of Kiev, but now onto Vyazma. I remember the one and only time I played this before I won a Decisive Victory on the very last day. I hope this time is not as dicey, we shall see.
