Good idea with the deployment scenario for Poznan. No one likes to go to war with Pz 1 training tanks…

What I don't like at all are all these Soviet prototype units that are treated as regular units. Many of these projects were abandoned before the war even started:
KV-5 (paper), AT-1 (2+6 hulls), SP-T-18 (1), SU-6 (1), SU-11 (1)
I don't care about these anymore as I have replaced them with non-purchasable copies of production units in my mod's e-file, but maybe someone else also feels disturbed about too much fantasy in the more or less historical scenarios.
I wouldn't use these prototypes in the GC. The lack of self-propelled AA and artillery units was a drawback of the Soviets that they had to deal with at beginning what the German player should exploit.
Even a simple KV-2 with enough superhero-power is fun enough to deal with what I know from your other campaigns in the past.

To add more flavor to existing scenarios, i decided to introduce the new units. To avoid debates about historical/non-historical, prototypes and production numbers, these revisions are available in the modding section and is not and will not be an official update of the Grand Campaign; even so when some people are actually hoping for that.

Afrika Korps revisions.

Reconnaissance in force:

Dingos were replaced by a captured L3/35 and Vickers Mk. VI
Added for British a captured 75mm 75/18 near Benghazi
All preplaced Axis units are now part of the army core, AB 40 was replaced by M13/40.

Ras el Mdauuar

Appearingly for destroying four strongpoints near Ras el Mdauuar, prestige is awarded. I have marked those strongpoints as "special", meaning they now have a highlighted strength plate and it should be easy to distinguish them from the other strongpoints who don't give any prestige except kills.
Two 5-strength AB 40s have been replaced by full strength saharan infantry, one joins the army core.
Added three more turns to this scenario.
The two auxiliary 5cm Pak 38s now join the army core.
Moved two Matilda IIs somewhat closer to the frontline and raised their strength to 10.

Hello Nico,
Excellent job so far, only one question: is that file of Reconnaissance in force compatible with the pre sequel campaign of Italy Corps? 8)

No, you have to use the scenario that comes with Italy Corps.

Hello Nico!

Thanks for changing the name! :D

But the hero name is the only change in the GC 39 Extended version, no other changes in contrast to the previous version?

---
I never thought that you update Afrika Korps too.... :D

Nico, my apologies...but can I/we have a Pre-Scenario for Afrika Korps too (and the updated files for AK as base)? In the same way I wish it here for GC 39: http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 62#p595662

Maybe with one unit with a hero and incl. a german translation.

Basically in the same way as for GC 39!

Nico, is this possible please?

Please three Units with heroes from the beginning (all historical correct in Africa):

1.) Irnfried Freiherr von Wechmar

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irnfried_von_Wechmar
From Wiki:
Nach der Machtübernahme der Nationalsozialisten wurde Wechmar reaktiviert und als Hauptmann Chef der >>> Aufklärungsabteilung 3 <<< in Stahnsdorf (bei Berlin).
...
Im Februar 1941 wurde Wechmar, inzwischen Major, mit seiner Abteilung als Teil des Deutschen Afrikakorps nach Libyen verlegt. Anfang März wurde Wechmar zum Oberstleutnant befördert. Er nahm an den Kämpfen des Afrikakorps und der italienischen Truppen in Nordafrika gegen die Briten teil. Am 13. April 1941 wurde ihm das Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes verliehen. Am 16. Januar 1942 wurde er mit dem Deutschen Kreuz in Gold ausgezeichnet und aus Afrika abberufen.
A reconnaissance hero unit (SdKfz 232 8 Rad) with: Attack +1, Initiative +3, Bewegung (Move) +2, Sichtradius (visual radius) +2


2.) A second hero unit (Italian) in a MC.200 Saetta:

Ugo Drago

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ugo_Drago

Attack +2, Verteidigung (Defense) +2, Initiative +4


3.) Panzerjäger Abt. 39 (mot) Major Jansa >> http://dak.webseiten.cc/einheiten/heer/ ... ng-mot-39/

3.7cm PAK 36 with a Opel Blitz, Jansa as Hero with: Attack +3, Defense +3, Initiative +4, Bewegung (Move) +1

Many, many thanks in forward Nico!

Includes a new opening scenario with the three suggested heroes, also in German language. In second mission you can purchase and deploy the units of your preference.

For now only a small zip file, the complete package will be available as soon as i have finished all AK scenarios.

IMPORTANT NOTE: this version will overwrite the vanilla campaign.pzdat file. It is highly recommended to back-up necessary files!!!

Will this occur even if utilizing the JSGME?

Really enjoying your continual enhancements to Panzer Corps!

No, loading a mod into GME temporarily overwrites vanilla files by the versions in the mod; once the mod is being unloaded, original files are placed back.
Personally, i zipped the Panzer Corps\data folder and then let the new versions overwrite the original ones.

@ Nico

Another suggestions:

The Name of the special hero in DLC´40 Sedan Scenario is not "Bar", but "Bär" with "ä" >> Heinrich Bär >> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinrich_B%C3%A4r

The Name of the special hero in DLC´44 East Korsun Pocket Scenario is Matthäus Hetzenauer! Matthäus with "ä" >> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matth%C3%A4us_Hetzenauer

You might want to check the hero of the Tiger as well - it is Erich Litzke (the "h" in his first name is missing, naming him "Eric").
