You get a list of troop movements, troop concentrations, ship positions, Units planning to attack xx target etc

It can be very useful about once every 6 months

The problem with the WitP sigint model is that it's too realistic. This means that every day you get a list of intercepts telling you such fascinating items as the 279th hibachi chef regiment is located in Changkun; then, as CM says, about once every six months you will find an item buried in the daily list saying something like the Imperial Guards Division is loading on transports with a destination of Pearl Harbor. My trouble is that I probably got bored the day before and decided to skip reading the list that turn. Hopefully WitW will give you a G2 staff that will sift through the intercepts for you.

Exactly. I needed my own Intel Staff just to read all this garble and to put it on a map. I quickly decided to skip it and take my chances without it.

Ultra didnt tell the allies there was an entire SS panzer Korp at Arnhem.

It didnt tell the Americans there was a fresh division in front of Omaha.

It didnt tell them an Army was about to attack them in the Ardennes.

Not sure how usefull it should be at this scale.



But it did a decent job of forecasting the German counteract at Mortain. Yes?

The movement of the German infantry division to Omaha was detected before the invasion, but not soon enough for the plan to be adjusted.

Hmm I suppose there are some parts of a country I will not name where these are compulsory

Being driven back to the German border, most of the orders for the Ardennes Offensive were done over landlines - which can't be intercepted by ULTRA.
