Advice wanted on kriegsmarine

Post by ulfSjolinder » Tue May 11, 2021 12:37 pm

There very many specialty options to choose from. Which one do you recommend?

In scenario western approach, secondary objective, ”deal 2 damage with naval mines”
Some advice on how get the enemy ship to sail into the mines.

Thanks, Ulf

Given the way that KM was designed, unfortunately the spec tree is very limited with what you can actually buy. I recommend getting Plan Z and the subsequent Carrier expansion program for a total of 30 points not spending it on anything else. as for the naval mines, your JU-88 aux bombers can drop mines at key spots along the Irish and British coast, but if you scout ahead of a convoy and predict their path accordingly, you can bait either the convoy or it's escorts into the mines for a commander. I actually got this obj with a minesweeper when I mined the stretch of water between Southern Ireland and Southwestern England

See: https://legacy.wargamer.com/review-orde ... arine-dlc/

Hate(!) to toot my own horn, but I wrote that -- albeit after the recent (Jan) revamp of the Wargamer site, it looks like for some reason I'm uncredited for that one. I have a lot more articles on the site, about OoB and other games. :)

My advice would also be to aim for the carrier specialization from the start. If you want to finish the campaign air support is pretty much a prerequisite.
