Pure BV German Campaign

Unread postby Danielefc » Mon Dec 05, 2011 6:24 am

If anyone is having trouble with any scenario then attached here is a walkthrough of the entire german campaign. Its all BVs and done without any re-loads.
Attach it to "User/Your name/unity of command"

Here are three pointers for each scenario.

General advice:
Keep an eye on the kills your units have (some have some kills from the scenario beginning - specially in Baku, Stalingrad and Kuibyshev). Veteran and elite units are very very important.
10 kills= veteran
25 kills= elite
When a unit is veteran wait for it to have 5 kills before re-inforcing or it will drop back to normal. This number is 10 kills for elite units

2nd Kharkov:
-Attach Engineers to all armour
-Surround the soviet units to the west of the main river
-Bridge crossing where shown in turn one so that all armour can thrust quickly north

Voronezh:
-Attach engineers to northern armour
-Destroy as much soviet armour and infantry with armour attached as possible in turn one
-Keep one hex held by Hungarians - this will tempt the enemy to counter here instead of using all forces to block your advance

Case Blue:
-Deploy 11th Pz.D. two help out northern thrust so that the other mobile forces can race ahead
-Use the two panzer divisions out of supply and the Motorized division at the beginning to race for Tsimlianskaia and Millerovo
-Use two panzer divisions plus SS Wiking to cross river by rostov (engineers attached)

Edelweiss:
-Only scenario I usually have problems with is this one - Reaching Maikop in time is tricky which requires all your armour and motorized units to race there from turn one with specialist steps attached. While still destroying all units to your rear.

Stalingrad:
-Slow down :) - lots of turn to get BV here - kill as many soviet units as possible each turn
-Attach engineers to the two northern Panzers and Stugs to the motorized units.
-Take care not to push your advance more than one hex into out of supply - and keep units that are surpressed safe from counter attack.
-Only attach supply to northern route and just switch around your southern forces each turn to hold that bridgehead

Terek:
-Tricky scenario - but not as hard as it seemes at first
-Attach specialist steps to all units - engineers and recon to the panzers

Astrakhan:
-Drive for Astrakhan with the southern motorized infantry immediatly
-Destroy units to the north quickly and then race to support attack on the city

Baku:
-You must reach Baku by turn 8 or re-inforcements will make BV impossible
-Attach engineers to the two eastern panzers and to the western mountain divisions
-Move fast but take care not to have your supply cut in the north west mountains

Kuibyshev (play this last as it requires a lot of prestige):
-By now you have enough Prestige to just drown your forces in specialist - Engineers for the armour though
-Move fast - rain will be the biggest "danger" here

OK, I'm noting 631 as the current Axis campaign high score.

As a note to all players, a perfect campaign score (all brilliant victories, no prestige spent) should be possible for the Axis campaign: 2500. ;)
