Pelton -> Merging 2 Brigdes into a rifle divisions? (10/31/2012 2:15:50 AM)

OK it should be easy to do and not like opening a safe as per 7.5.3.1

I simply can't get 2 units to merge, 3 cavs make a Corp np works every time.

The rules say stack 2 units and merge. I have tried about 20 different units and none merge.

Now if there are other little top secret things that poeple need can someone tell me?

If its not that simple why is something so basic and important not clearly explained in the rules?

No earlier than turn 47.

Static and frozen units can't merge. Soviet rifle brigades can't merge into divisions prior to May '42. Also check 7.5.3.6 for restrictions on merging units. However without more details on specifically what units you are trying to merge it's hard to say what is happening. As always, a save file that repeats the problem really helps.

Both old and newer rule book say June 41. Must be newer patch change?

It's possible that the brigades all need some type of 'rifle' designation ( there may be a few units that are 'infantry'? ). All the brigades need at least one MP too.

Nope it's a very old change. See page 322 in the WITE-Manual-[US_Letter].pdf version of the manual:

I would add that one of the best reasons to merge rifle brigades into rifle divisions is to used them IMMEDIATELY to create the early (rifle brigade based) rifle corps. These corps are a effective way of pruning down the rifle brigades without initially incurring a lot of arms points requirements and will ultimately upgrade to full blown rifle corps later in 1942.

It's still 20 AP to do that.

True but considering that you've got to gather five rifle brigades together in the same spot it's not something you will be doing a lot of. I would argue for not creating more than 1 rifle brigade based rifle corps per turn if that many. Remember that in the time period that these corps make sense to create there's not a lot of other things to build. Two rifle divisions cost as much as the early rifle corps and ultimately deliever only 2/3 the firepower (after the corps upgrades).
