Re: AP or HEAT

According to WW2APCalc AP and best HEAT have the same value for a 8.8 cm KWK36 L56 (16) out to 450 meters. But that is best HEAT, and as HEAT penetration is highly randomized, AP is clearly the...

AP or HEAT

I have found that tanks prefer to fire HEAT ammo even at ranges where AP shot would have far better penetration. It is extremely annoying to have your Tigers lose short range duels to IS2s just...

Re: Tanks firing machine guns at other tanks

I cannot tell from your comment if this refers to reality or the game?

There are/have been some guns that used dedicated coaxial rifle calibre weapons for ranging, but that presupposes that the...

Tanks firing machine guns at other tanks

In game tanks will routinely fire the machine guns at other tanks after firing the main gun if they can. AFAIK this inflicts minor suppression, but otherwise is just tedious and takes time when...

Molotov cocktail/ Brandflasche etc

It seems to me that Molotov cocktail/ Brandflasche are by far the most effective infantry anti tank weapons in the game until Panzerfausts and Bazookas come along. They are certainly more effective...

Re: Flak issue

Getting back to Flak guns. I think they are somewhat overpowered in the game due to two things:

1. AA guns seem to have no problem firing at aircraft and ground targets in the same turn. As an...

Is the AI smarter in v12?

I have the impression that the AI is better at establishing a defense in depth in random battles in v12. Or am I just imagining things?

It still has a strong penchant for a Banzai counterattack as...

Re: Leaving the map

Re: Leaving the map

Aren't you supposed to gain points for exiting units on the enemy side of the map in an advance scenario?

And vice versa, I vaguely recollect reading that you should getting points for exiting...

Re: WinSPWW2 V12 ( 2019 ) Upgrade

I always thought Z fire was too generous, something of a gamey exploit, especially as infantry ammo is effectively unlimited in the game, and I never used it much. I think it is a good thing that...

Re: 20 years

I agree with all the thanks expressed above! If you added a "donate" button, I would happily support your efforts, and I guess many others would too.

Hitler Youth spelling in German

Hitlerjugend should be spelled like that, in one word, rather than Hitler Jugend.

Would you drive a 50 ton tank across this bridge?

Historically, bridges were often a limit for the use of heavy tanks. In the game, any bridge will hold any tank, which I think is rather generous. It would be nice if secondary road bridges had a...

Re: New player: struggling to overcome entrenched enemies

I am not opposed to time limits per se. I just dislike that the time limit is very often tight in scenarios, which precludes the use of probing attacks and switching attack direction, which is...

Re: Question

Yes, but I manually rally any unit I want to rally during the turn. Auto rally just makes sure I do not forget to rally someone, alternately I can just let auto rally do the job for all units if I am...

Re: New player: struggling to overcome entrenched enemies

Increase the number of turns in ScenHack. Some "puzzle" scenarios are balanced to a point where there is no place for mistake or delay. I hate when the scenario is about to end and I'm still in the...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

Just came to think of this. We had spare prisms for the main sight and for the observation ports when I was in tanks (Centurions). So even if the optics are damaged by splinters, they are easily...

It never occurred to me to turn it off, so I have always had it on. Would there be any reason or any advantage to turning it off?

Re: Feature requests for 2019

This sounds like a great addition. Thanks for the info!

Maybe a stupid question. Tanks can already be immobilized by artillery. What will the difference be?

Re: Feature requests for 2019

I do not think suppression is too high, after all, there has to be a meaningful way to use combined arms in the game without waiting for 5 turns of artillery fire.

What I do think is too deadly...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

I have a feeling that unspotted AI units are completely unaffected by artillery fire. I have several times put a barrage in an area, and when I reach it the next turn with my troops, I spot enemy...

It's probably just me overlooking something, but how do I make a stream hex into a ford in the map editor?
