Regardless scenario´s quality, which is good, it seems that soviet units are still unbalanced versus their german counterparts. E.g super-heavy tanks: how come there is a never really produced Maus present and no IS-1 or 2? Also soviet air force is very poor relative to german jet fighters. I guess these are due to a DLC limitation but, in this case, the units from both sides should be more balanced.

Forgive me if I am misinterpreting you (and feel free to clarify), but are you saying my scenario (Berlin 1945) is unbalanced, or just Order of Battle in general? I would agree with you if you're saying the Soviet units in Order of Battle are not on par with those of the Germans. The German aircraft and tanks are far superior. However, I believe my scenario is very well balanced, as I didn't use any "mythical" tanks like the Maus, and used auxiliary IS-1's and IS-2's, which do in fact exist in the game. The Soviets also have a lot more RP than the Germans in Berlin 1945.
I am not sure what you are trying to say, so a reply would be appreciated. Thanks!

With my excuses for this poor english, what I tried to say is precisely the second aspect you mencioned. More investiment seems to have been dedicated to the development of german than soviet units in this DLC, so there are much more late-war armor and air units from those than from urss. I did appreciate your map, and recgnize your good work, of course; the unbalance I refer is due to the unit sets available for the opposing factions.

Ahhh I see. Well thanks for playing and enjoying the scenario! I recognized precisely what you are mentioning and thus gave the USSR many more RP to counteract that in the scenario. Of course, it would be more fun with more late-war Soviet units though.

There is something that intrigues me in your scenario Berlin : why American planes from the east ?

"Operation Frantic was a series of seven shuttle bombing operations during World War II conducted by American aircraft based in Great Britain and southern Italy which then landed at three Soviet airfields in Ukraine. The operation ran between June and September, 1944. " :arrow: not for the Battle of Berlin :!:
In the DLC PanzerCorps GC44East, there is a scenario called "Poltava" (http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 40#p759239) -> 20 June 1944 :!:

There is a Supply problem specially for the Luftwaffe. Why no Air supply for the 2 Airfields ?
What are the names of the 2 Airfields : Schönenfeld and Tegel Airport ?

No air supply for the German airfields is intentional EDIT: (to recreate their aviation fuel shortages). Also, the city is not based exactly on the real one. Not very historically accurate. I'll make some changes though, and definitely link Biesdorf to its hex. Thanks for the feedback!

Not sure that not enough Air Supply is the best solution to simulate fuel shortages.
To simulate fuel shortages you could maybe put German planes in Hangars (waiting for more fuel ?) :?:
Putting planes in Hangars will not change the Air Supply Limit Exceeded.
If you play with the German side you will have this message Turn 1 :

Thanks for the new scenarios. Finished few days ago Berlin 1945 and decide to translate it in russian. If you interested, put russian version in your archive (it's not final version, but very close). Also, i changed preview picture. I don't like default previews cause they spoiling enemy positions. The link - https://cloud.mail.ru/public/K1ef/PjKmEWtXP

Suggestion for Berlin 1945 : increase the resistance of the first German line of defence through trenching and adding mines :idea:

I'm going to try and start making my first campaign. Centered around the early clashes between the Chinese Nationalist Party and the Chinese Communist Party from around 1927 to 1935.

EDIT: Thanks Parallax and Terminator for playing Berlin. The feedback is greatly appreciated!
