  2. Sinister indeed. The Stug moved thru the wheat field, and pulled onto that dirt road. As they were moving towards a small village, a T-34 hidden among the houses picked them off. The end result being that all the troops riding were KIA. And the war goes on.

  3. I'm not clear on something. I decided to have a look at this to see what I could make of it, but I couldn't find anything that matched your description. There are two training campaigns, one basic set in Bizerte, and a second advanced one set on Sicily. Can you tell me which one you are attempting and which scenario? Michael

    Yes, the last stand of the "glorious" Wehrmacht! Fanatics, 15 year olds and old men who were either forced to fight by threat of death or made sure that the suffering continued needlessly for the last few months. Luckily your line of thinking is finally dying out now that our understanding of the war has moved on from Guderians memoirs. Christ. Edit: And those "Red bastards" you speak of were the true heroes, they endured the whole sale slaughter of their families and countrymen to finally destroy that disgusting organization and naziism in general. I'm no fan of Stalin but I ha

    WWII was literally the most catastrophic man-made event in human history. If you include Japan and China in the mix some 80 million people died (out of a world population not much larger than 2.3 billion) in the space of a few short years. The scale of atrocities is unimaginable. By war's end even the 'good guys' were incinerating entire city populations. Looking back on his actions in the Pacific General Curtis Lemay commented "I suppose if I had lost the war, I would have been tried as a war criminal." WWII is a template for nobody for how nations should act.

    Actually most of us Bolshie lovers won't get too upset, because those red bastards got the last laugh, so to speak, and we are too-well-used-to wargame developers pandering to players that glorify the German military. That said, I have no idea why you'd consider that "honoring the last stand of the Wehrmacht" would be more "fair" than honoring those that defeated Nazism after it had treacherously invaded their country? Weird...

    Bolshie lover? uhhhhh, the wehrmacht et al killed around 25M folks in soviet russia. Russia did not attack germany. So yes let's 'honor' them?? for a war of murder and extermination?? Hitler's plan was for the enslavement, banishment or murder of 160M people. So yes, the russian invasion was certainly a most 'honorable' endeavor. As long as we all agree that those 160M weren't actually people, but some sort of subhuman eastern hordes like all those twisted german memoirs always say (I've read piles of them). The last stand of the wehrmacht was utter madness, not something honor

  10. Just a warning when using the assault command. The AI will allow the teams within the squad to move independently of each other. However, because they are still part of a single squad they share state. This means that the moving element, if pinned, can then cause the static element (who should be engaging the enemy) to become pinned. It makes assault pretty useless when you really want it to work as suddenly the ~five guys you expect to cover the maneuver element decide that they too are taking fire. Splitting teams splits the state of each team. Meaning that your overwatch element will not
