Nikivdd's GC39 on Gurderian

Post by milliethedog » Fri Feb 16, 2018 7:14 pm

Hi all,
I have been playing Panzer Corps since it came out on both PC and I Pad. I normally play on Field marshal, but after following a number of people playing these bonus Levels I thought that I would try a run through with the first Gurderian. I have just completed a 39 to 45 (East) playing with Nikivdd's excellent updated Grand campaign 39 to 45. In this he has included SS units, better icons, minor changes to game play, the ability to save some aux troops and many surprises from the standard run through. I found the highly mobile Russian AA in 41 to 45 almost a game changer for me, I was painfully caught out several times to my horror. For me the best play through yet. I thought that Gurderian where every game has 5 turns less than the standard game would suit my own style.

Game 1 (an extra game to allow you to pick your own starting core from scratch AT Poznan)
0 points
1x PzIIIE Bonus Att+2 def +1 Init+2
dv 1 turn no fighting you just capture the flag,

Game 2 Poznan Max 9 turns
starting points 3650 after purchases 295

Core
1x Pz IIIE
1x Pz IIC awarded at the start of the game and then purchased
4x Gebirasjager
3x Pz IVc
1x 10.5cm LeFH and truck
2x Sturmpanzer 1
1x Bf 109E
1x Ju87B
1x Bf 110C

End points 1295

DV after 9/9 with all Flags taken and an Aux Bf110C saved to my core. I only just got all the flags and then captured the last objective on the last turn. This was really tight. I think I will have to up grade my infantry to trucks and arty to SDkfzs ASAP.

Game 3 Danzig Corridor Max 9 turns
starting points 1395 after purchases 1071 (sold Aux Bf 110C 324pts)

Core
1x Pz IIIE
1x Pz IIC
4x Gebirasjager
3x Pz IVc

1x 10.5cm LeFH and truck purchased
2x Sturmpanzer 1
1x Bf 109E
1x Ju87B
1x Ju87B Rudel awarded during game
1x Bf 110C

Captured a polish 10.5cm K27 Arty, but had a PzIV reduced to 1/10 for overextending. saved an Aux 74mm Arty and a Pz II to my core. 9/9 turns and all Flags captured but again only on the last turn. End points 2484. Very tight.

DV after 10/11 but I did not capture 5 flags. Very difficult I just punched straight up the middle with my main force and finished on 4958pts.I did not save any Aux as I needed them to survive and then ran out of time to evacuate them.

I really do not like this battle, I always take heavy hits from the big guns and that Dam Armoured Train. I left 1 flag un-captured (Fort Debe) as I did not want any more casualties for 50 pts. DV after 11/12 on 5744 points. No Aux to save. Glad this one is over.
