1x Bridging engineer
1x SS MG 45 and SDkfz 250 upgraded from SS MG 42
7x SS Tiger II from 6x SS Tiger and 1x SS Panther A
13x SS Tiger I
5x SS 17cm K18's and SDkfz 7's

3x Ju 188A

I split the core into 3 kamf,

Kamf 1 Holds the crossing of the Dnieper at 14/2 until all the Russian units are wiped out or surrender, leaving only the AA unit. The Kamf then force the crossing recapturing Kopys and then Horki and its air field. The Kamf after weathering a soviet attack then flank Drybin and its air base before joining K2 in capturing the town.

Kamf 2 Tigers backed by arty and flak easily hold Mogilev then after destroying several waves of attackers goes on the offensive joining K1 to take Drybin. The combined force then moves south taking the airfield at 28/13, then capture Cavusy, then Cerykav and its airbase.

Kamf 3 easily hold the crossing at 15/24 until the attacking force is wiped out. they then cross the Dnieper recapturing Bykhaw. After destroying a Russian counter attack they capture Slauharad and its base then taking Krasnapolie with its airbase. This kamf also capture a Jagdtiger prototype !

I got a DV after 20/20 turns and ended on 30834 points. again a very easy game as long as you defend early and are not tempted to attack. game was won by turn 14 but I waited to turn 20 for a few more points

2x Bf 109G
4x Ju 87G
1x Ju 87B Recon
2x Me 410A
3x Ju 188A

as normal I split the core into 3 kamf,

Kamf 1 2 tigers, 2 sig and 2 infantry Hold the crossing of the Berezina river at 8/10 until all the attacking Russian units are wiped out or surrender, leaving only a couple of units to mop up before they re-capture 4 towns and 2 air fields in the forest area. The kamf then move to join K2 as it moves east after the defence of Babruysk.

Kamf 2 7 Tigers backed by 6 arty and 2 flak easily hold the western bank of Babruysk, 5 tigers (with 2 rotating) in a solid line backed by Heavy arty and supported by 88's and un crossable flanks are almost impossible to breach. Waves of soviet tanks smash into this line and after the long range arty destroyed any SpAAG's a mix of Ju 87's and tigers destroy or force the surrender of the soviet forces. The kamf then advances retaking the only Flag lost at Babruysk at 16/17 then clear the soviets from Kirausk and Kilcau joining up with units from K1, they spread out quickly taking Douhaye, Chachevichy, Dubroiki and the airbase at 30/1, Kirausk, the airbase at 23/10, then Shalayouka and finally Bykhaw before turning South to join up with K3 in clearing the last of the battlefield.

Kamf 3 7 Tiger II's, 3 Arty 1 88AA and 1 infantry hold the key crossing of the Berezina river at 17/20. After setting up the small blocking force there 6 of the Tiger Ii's turn on the soviet forces that have crossed the Berezina to the south, after arty and tigers clear any SpAAg's the Ju 87's and Me410's fall on the soviet armour like hungry wolves, the Kamf retakes Parvcy, then Svetlogorsk and its airbase. they then turn the soviet flank heading north to recapture Buda Kasaliova, Zlobin and its 3 airfields. then fall on Rahaco and lastly the defenders of the crossing take Statsyevka with its airbase after earlier destroying any Russian units left.


I got a DV after 20/20 turns and ended on 31542points. A very straight forward Defend in depth and then attack game. that said both my Me410's were badly mauled with 1 going from 14/10 to 2/10 very costly!

2x Bf 109G
4x Ju 87G
1x Ju 87B Recon
2x Me 410A
3x Ju 188A

Normally I split the core into 3 kamf, this time however because this is going to be an aggressive game, I am only going to use 2 and I need the firepower.

Kamf 1 7 tiger II's, 2 sig, 1 H Arty and 1 infantry advance to and then leaving a small force to hold the crossing of the Berezina river at 22/22 until all the attacking Russian units are wiped out or surrender, the rest of the Kamf spread along the south and west bank of the river destroying an Soviet bridging units that they discover. On the south bank after clearing it the Kamf cross the river and seize Mar'ina Horka, then advance and take Jalizava, Cyva and its airbase. After counter attacks they take Cervien and its base then turn and take Druzny and its base from the rear. Th kamf then take Smilavicy and then block the crossing at 28/20 as well as taking the airbase at 35/19. 1 tiger ii heads north stops Soviet forces from coming from the north by holding 36/12.

Kamf 2 the main core 10 tigers, 7 arty, 2 sIG's, 1 88 flak and 2 infantry easily hold Minsk against waves of Russian attacks. After wiping out the last of the infantry and retaking any lost flags in Minsk they advance taking the airfield at 30/13, then The base at 25/8 before taking Lahojsk and Zodzina and hold against a massive counter attack before taking the last town at Borisov.

I got a DV after 20/20 turns and ended on 30544 points. Lots of Soviet armour, lots of AA and SpAAg's, but aggression works here! and you get a KV85.

4x Ju 87G
1x Ju 87B Recon
2x Me 410A
3x Ju 188A

Normally I split the core into 3 kamf, this time however because this is going to be an aggressive game, I am going to use 4.

Kamf 1 The Northern group retake the Rail station (RS) at 15/7 but only after destroying a number of sneaky Partisan groups. They then firstly hold and then destroy a Soviet armour attack that comes very close to out flanking K2, As they advance another Partisan group tried to disrupt the attack to no avail. Klemielski, and Silva Fall and a tiger takes up a blocking position at 36/11. Lyntupy with its air base and then Viorenki all fall with almost no defence. the tanks also then roll on to take the RS at 30/15 and take a blocking roll at the cross point 35/13. The north is then secure.

Kamf 2 Defends against partisan attacks from the rear and Russian Armour from the front. after wiping out the attacking Partisans the kamf Tigers and Arty firstly hold the key airfield at 19/20 and then set about eliminating the soviet armour and then eventually the soviet infantry. once resupplied they advance recapturing the RS at 22/13, Astraviec and the RS at16/25, 20/23 and 24/25. They then attack and take Cudzieniski, Smarhov, Asmalny and then lastly Molodechno with its base.

Kamf 3 Based at Linda, they soaked up attack after attack from soviet armour and infantry, because of the secure position and the crush of attacking forces so great they are able to force many units to surrender before eliminating the attacking force. The kamf resupplies and then goes on the attack retaking Lipniski, then a splinter group crosses the Neimen River taking Ivianiec with its airfield. the rest take the RS at 23/38 and at 23/33 before joining the attack on Molodechno.

Kamf 4 is an Anti Partisan group, they attack all Partisans and retake any captured bases before joining up with the other Kamf.

I got a DV after 30/30 turns and ended on 30144 points. Lots of Partisans and lots more soviet armour.

The Long War
Warsaw

Field marshal Level, Starting Points 30714
After Replenishment and re-enforcements 28561 points


Core
8x SS GebirgsJager 43 and SDkfz 250/251
1x Bridging engineer
1x SS MG 45 and SDkfz 250 upgraded from SS MG 42
7x SS Tiger II from 6x SS Tiger and 1x SS Panther A
13x SS Tiger I
1x KV 85 (r)
5x SS 17cm K18's and SDkfz 7's
3x SS 21cm MRS and SDkfz 7's
4x SS sIG 33
1x SS Flak 36 and tractor
2x 88 Flak 36 and tractor
1x 12.8cm Flak and tractor
1x Mobelwagon
1x Wirdelwind
4x Fw 190A
2x Bf 109G
4x Ju 87G
1x Ju 87B Recon
2x Me 410A
3x Ju 188A

Not the normal game, really 2 different games going on, 1 air battle Fighters Fw 190's against B17's and P51's, while a ground battle Tigers and heavy Arty vers infantry and light AT. The tigers form a line backed by heavy arts and sIG's with some infantry for shock attacks. They slowly advance rolling over everything in their path, I had 2 Ju87's which were used to take out the captured German equipment and then smash bunkers. In reality this is a walkover if you take your time and move your forces together. As I played this game "Warsaw 44 " came on the TV, to be honest it was a hard watch, while they were being crushed on film I was wiping them out in my game. I stay on target by only taking the Warsaw Flags, the only exception is the air base North of the city which I take as quick as possible as it is the only airbase the allied plans use and without it they are even easier targets.

The air war was just as easy, by luck I found that if you leave a Fw190 over certain hex almost every bomber flew into it. The rest were easy targets of Fighter traps .

I got a DV after 20/22 turns and ended on 28975 points.

I did a quick comparison of where I was at this point versus where you are at this point in the game and yes I have about 16000 more prestige than you do, but your army seems much stronger than mine and as long as you minimize the overstrengthening of your core army and maximize the overstrengthening of your SE Army you should have no problem earning enough prestige to finish all missions, including the brutal Berlin. Make sure to bring every experienced infantry you have and a buttload of artillery.

I hope to get time to post an update on my progress tomorrow.

IMO comparing your two corps is incomplete without taking into account heroes & levels of experience. Would be curious to see how you stack up against each other.

The Long War
Budapest
The last Battle 44

Field marshal Level, Starting Points 29575
After Replenishment and re-enforcements 22006 points (mainly the cost of upgrading the Me 262's )


Core
8x SS GebirgsJager 43 and SDkfz 250/251
1x Bridging engineer
1x SS MG 45 and SDkfz 250 upgraded from SS MG 42
7x SS Tiger II from 6x SS Tiger and 1x SS Panther A
13x SS Tiger I
1x KV 85 (r)
5x SS 17cm K18's and SDkfz 7's
3x SS 21cm MRS and SDkfz 7's
4x SS sIG 33
1x SS Flak 36 and tractor
2x 88 Flak 36 and tractor
1x 12.8cm Flak and tractor
1x Mobelwagon
1x Wirdelwind
5x Me 262A upgraded from 4x Fw 190A and 1x Me 109G
1x Bf 109G
4x Ju 87G
1x Ju 87B Recon
1x Me 410A
1x Fw 190G up graded from Me 410A
3x Ju 188A

The upgrade of the Fw 190 to Me 262 are a game changer in the air, nothing can touch them, they easily destroy all the soviet fighters for zero losses, AA and SpAAgs are really the only danger on the map, Once the air is clear, the Tac bombers run riot on the battle field concentrating on Russian Heavy and Super heavy tanks as the T34's are easy meat for the Tigers and King Tigers. What could have been a real meat grinder rapidly becomes a Duck hunt. The only issues were waiting for infantry and arty catching up to take out dug in heavy AT and infantry rather than taking costly losses in expensive armour. The Weather was key, I had a mix of weather though out but a couple more days of snow at the start would have made it much closer.

3 Kamf as normal

Kamf 1 7 Tigers, 3 arty and 2 sIG along with the Aux have no issue holding Budapest and more importantly hold the key airfield at 22/18, After destroying the attacking forces they support K2 and K3 when they cross the Danube turn from defence to attack. They then supported by Aux then take Aszod and the final attack on Hatvan the last flag to fall.

Kamf 2 5 Tigers, 3 arty and an infanry unit fixed on a line from Perkatn covering the 3 frozen crossings over the Danube at 17/25, 17/23 and 17/22. They are able to hold the crossings while grinding down the attackers. when they are weak enough the kamf crosses the Danube from Perkatn and takes Rackeve, Orkeny, the airfield at 37/28 Cegled and its airfield, then Monor, Nagykata, Jaszberany with its airfield,

Kamf 3 7 Tiger II's 2 arty, 2 sIGs and an infantry unit only just get to the key crossing at Nagymaros just as the Aux are being decimated. The king tigers stop the attack dead with a little help from Tac's. After weathering the attacks they advance and take Vac, dig in deep and weather another hudge attack then again advance and take Paszto and lastly for them the airfield at 37/3



I got a DV after 22/22 turns and ended on 21543 points.

44 is over

This was my army imported at the end of 1944

Hi TSPC37730,
you most certainly ARE worthy, I have played this since the game was released after playing Panzer General from its release, I have played these games many times and therefore I have a major edge. Continue playing and posting.

3x Ju 188A

This is a fairly easy game as the Russians are caught between my forces and un-crossable rivers except for a few key crossing points, the key is to take these crossing points as quickly as possible to stop re-enforcements coming into play. I then have a choice to finish wiping out the soviet force on my side of the rivers for a quick win or wipe out the counter attacks at the crossings and then attack capturing all the flags and eliminating all soviet forces.

4 Kamf for a change,

Kamf 1, 4 Tigers, 4 tiger II's, 5 arty and 1 infantry advance rapidly attacking soviet armour around Gr nassawen, they take the town and hold the crossing points after eliminating the soviet bridging units. The rest of the kamf clear out the soviet forces up to and retake the rail depot at 18/13. Minus the blocking forces the rest of the Kamf advance to Duberminden and seal that crossing. These force become the main blocking force for the bulk of the Soviet forces smash themselves on. The blocking force at nassawen after soaking up smaller counter attacks advance and capture the AF at 29/8 and then capture Wystyten and its AF after destroying the covering AA unit.

Kamf 2, 1 tiger, 1 infantry and 1 aux infantry supported by Tac, hunt down partisans and re take any captured Flags.

Kamf 3, 3 Tiger's and 1 sIGs Advance directly north to Goldnap and support the Aux forces there to stop the Soviet advance. With K1 to the North they advance clearing almost all soviet units up to Duberminden, just leaving 1 pinned soviet infantry unit alive until I want to kill it to win the game.

kamf 4, 2 Tigers, 4 Tiger II's, 2 sIG's and 3 Arty re-take Gurunen and block the crossings at 23/20 and 26/22. after destroying the attacking Soviets they advance and clear the forces between the Angerapp river and the Pregel river then take the crossing at Prze with its air base, then on to Vilkaviskis and its air base.


I got a DV after 21/21 turns and ended on 22178 points. All flags captured and all enemy units destroyed.

45 has just started !

I have always liked this game as it can turn on just a couple of dice rolls. The defenders can live or die, the game won or lost almost before you can influence it. key for me is getting at least 1 fighter over the sky's above Pelleninkin. I wanted to attack North on both sides of the Inster River. I took a bridging unit on the west bank to provide a second escape route for the defenders.

4 Kamf again,

Kamf 1, 3 Tigers and 2 sIG's guard the eastern flank against attack, they also have the task of clearing the North bank of the river and turning the right flank of the Soviet forces. they will be heavily supported by Ju87's to break the back of the Russian armour and they will need support from K2 at times to deal with just the number of enemy tanks. They advance and take the AF at 22/26 and then after forcing a crossing take Gumbinnen along with its AF. Supported by Tacs the move north clearing the armour to Brakupohnene and its AF. Supporting K2 they attack and destroy the soviet units around Pelleninkin. Eventually they push north again and finally take Kussen along with its AF.

Kamf 2, 5 tiger, 2 Tiger II's and 5 Arty force a crossing over the Pregel River and take Georgenburg, Supporting K1 they advance north to link up with the defending Aux in Pelleninkin. Eventually their advance allows the worst damaged Aux to escape south to the target zone.

Kamf 3, 2 Tiger II's 1 Tiger 1 infantry and 2 sIGs Advance to attack the Soviet Armour south of Kaschellan, then they clear the west bank of the Inster River at Pelleninkin allowing the bridging unit in K4 to put a bridge up at 16/11 to allow a second escape route for the defenders.

kamf 4, 5 Tiger II's, 3 Arty, 1 infantry and a bridging unit advance Eastward destroying everything in their path, a splinter takes Avlowohnen and Mehlandsea with its AF. they then hold against counter attacks supported by Tac's. The rest of the Kamf defend against counter attacks and then lastly attack and take Stablaken and its AF.

10 Aux escape the Russians, I lost more than I expected in the end and it was closer than it should have been with 1 aux 1/10 and 2 others 2/10 too close.

I got a DV after 14/18 turns and ended on 22346 points. All flags captured and all enemy units destroyed.

45 continues and the points are dropping already with 3300 worth of R and R to come.

You are doing well and beat out what Ulver Gaming was able to accomplish as he crapped out into this battle.

When you get to Osterode, would you mind doing a day by day again as that was my 2nd marginal and I feel a detailed comparison is in order. ;)

Thanks!

Hi Goose,
I have already played it but I save at the end of every turn as I have a fault on my laptop that means it just cuts every now and again so I can post them for you tonight.

1x Me 410A
1x Fw 190G
3x Ju 188A

This is a straight forward game, really the snow impacts the movement of all the tigers so badly that it seams almost like a big city battle, tanks backed by Arty, slow advance destroying everything in a great line across the map. A very easy game for my airforce, the 262's destroy the soviet force and the Arty and sIG's are close enough to weaken or even destroy all the soviet AA and SpAAg's allowing the Tac's to run riot on the soviet armour, The tigers then only have to mop up the remnants of the impacted soviet armour. The soviet bridge engineers are the hardest thing to kill, using Arty (lots ) and infantry to winkle them out and a tiger to finish any thing left.


I got a DV after 20/20 turns and ended on 19928 points. All flags captured and all enemy units destroyed.

45 continues

This is a less straight forward game, again the snow really impacts the movement of all the tigers badly that they have to stop for re-supply every couple of turns. That said it is still at times a real grind of tigers backed by art moving slowly forward wiping out everything in front of them. Again the arty and Sp's take out any identified AA or SpAAg's allowing the Tac's free reign over the battlefield to destroy any and all soviet armour giving the Tigers a very easy time.

Kamf 1, 6 Tigers and 4 sIG's 1 infantry along with Aux infantry, recon and AA. The attack taking Widittan taking the Left flank, they capture Gumehnen and its AF as well as the High ground at 7/20. They then move on and take Luienze and the high ground at 4/12. They then withstand a number of counter attacks and after destroying the attacking forces they take Molsen with its AF.

kamf 2, 4 Tigers and 2 tiger II's 3 arty along with Aux Jagtiger 3 infantry and 2 arty along with support from K3 clear the hights directly infront. they take 13/25 and 17/25 then on to Neuhausen with its AF. They then take the hights at 18/20 then Rudau and its AF, the hights at 11/18 then fall only leaving Laptau, AF and the Hights at 15/13

kamf 3, 6 Tiger II's, 5 Arty 1 infantry along with Aux recon close with and then destroy all the Soviet armour in front, before taking Goldbach and the hights at 29/21. They then close on Legitten clearing the Soviet armour around the town. They swing left and capture Posuichen, Schaken and finally the arty zone at 20/10 to win the game.


I got a DV after 20/20 turns and ended on 19928 points. All flags captured and all enemy units destroyed.
