  1. OK I am trying my first operation which is called "Carentan v2." I don't get it - will somebody explain how these things work? There are nine battles in it. In the briefing screen before the first battle as the axis it says I'm supposed to protect the junction at Come-du-mont and also hold the bridges N. and E. of Carentan. Well, I defended Come-Du-mont allright but there was no Carantan on the map and no bridges. Where were they?

    Then I started battle #2 a little further back for some reason. Why? This was a night battle that lasted 20 turns. NOTHING happened for 18 turns. I just sat in Come-du-mont defending the junction and nobody showed except a squad of paratroopers on foot near the end, and they ended up panicked and running.

    The third battle, I have to set up outside of Come-du-mont. What the? The enemy never came close to taking that town. Why did I lose it?

    Are operations worth playing or should I just stick with individual battles?

  2. OK - I just ended up sending two trucks out on my bridge and let the British shoot them. The crews ran out after that. I did lose one crew though. It didn't stop any infantry like you said, but it did slow a crocodile which my 88 then shot. there's a huge burning mess on that bridge now!

  3. Question: is there a way to abandon bunkers, pillboxes, and vehicles before you come under fire? I was wanting to leave a bunker in my scenario empty since it immediately gets destroyed in the first 5 minutes anyway, and I was thinking it would be cool to leave unneeded trucks parked across bridges as roadblocks and such.

  4. The main thing that attracted me to this game was the turn-based hybrid and the realism. However, I've noticed some suspect things. Like yesterday, a Churchill VII tank, BUTTONED UP, suddenly turned 90 degrees and started firing on my Panzerschrek team which was hiding in a swamp 140 meters away. How the heck could he see them? I saw no infantry around.

    Then, I was excited to get a Tiger and use it, but in both scenarios I played with one, it was defeated by enemy forces without even inflicting one casualty. The second time, my tiger was waiting for a freakin' Sherman to come through the woods. Three of my shots bounced off his front turret from about 50 meters away and his second shot knocked me out. I had a vetran crew, too.

    Is this just bad luck or bad tactics or bad realism?
