Many thanks for the list Joel and Jim for putting it all together it's exactly what I've been trying to figure out myself lately.

Excellent list!

The only thing I see "missing" is when rifle brigades can be formed into divisions. (Perhaps rifle divisions with a * since rifle divisions can be formed from the start of the game).

Be great to see something like this integrated into the commanders report as well for the appropriate items as they become available or perhaps a note in the re-enforcement schedule (or heck, why not both? )

May of 42 for the rifle brigades flipping to divisions.

Joel, I'm pretty sure players can't make mountain corps at any point in the game. (Which is somewhat odd because some of the later scenarios do begin with on map mountain corps. But you can't actually make them yourself.)

I made similar list after reading the manual:

Guards Airborne Division Jun-42 *   --> this may be Jan -43 ?
Guards Rifle Division: March - 42

Of course updates may have changed this.

If you combine mountain divisions you can but you cannot create more mountain divisions if you lose some of original ones.

Jakerson could you let us know how you managed to do it as I can't get make Mountain Corps in my current game (June 42) when trying with a stack of 3 Mountain Div's. Thou come to think of it one was Guards Mountain Div but I wouldn't expect that to be the problem.

Joel has asked me to update the creation list so I need definitive answers on the following items:

Guards Airborne Division - I went by when this unit becomes available in the OB file (wrob.dat) but I've never tried to create one myself so is the date 6/43 or 1/43?

Guards Rifle Division - I was under the impression you couldn't directly build any Guards unit. Can you build them directly starting 3/43?

TD Battery - I was under the impression these batteries would come as reinforcements and not be a buildable formation. If they are buildable can you still build them after their TOE's end date in April, 1942?

Mountain Corps - It was supposed to be formable from mountain divisions. Is this true or not?

If some one can get me answers to these questions I will update the list accordingly.

Thanks,

Jim Wirth

As far as I know if you combine three air brigades they automatically form up guard rifle divisions if done after March 1942. If you wait until January 1943 and combine three air brigades they form up guard airborne division.

Also if you combine three guard rifle divisions you automatically get guard rifle corps. If you combine two rifle brigades with guard status you get guard rifle division.

Saving airborne brigades is worth as you can get nice units from them later so it is not good to waste them in some delay operation at 1941. If they get shattered or isolated and surrendered there is no way to get them back and you cannot make new airborne units if original ones are killed.

Other than this you need to let your unit get experience and some of them auto convert to guard status.

Besides the airborne guards conversion, Soviet Rocket and Heavy Tank Regiments receive automatic guards status on creation.

Do they get higher exp too than normal units when created? Or is this just some Soviet naming scheme that Rocket artillery and heavy tank regiment is always named Guard but troops inside them start with low exp?

I thougt it was added in patch that mountain divisions can be merged to form mountain corps as there is mountain corps in some end year campaings and if you start 41 you have no way doing them.

They don't get higher exp or morale on creation, but over time they should get morale bonuses and exp should follow.

I do not know: this is from notes I took directly from the Manual.

You can combine two guards divisions with a regular brigade or division and get a guards rifle corps.  This means with 12 guards IDs you can make 6 guards corps instead of 4.  I can see no reason to ever use 3 guards divisions to make a rifle corps.
Not sure how much manpower difference difference their is in the TOE (combining 2 ID + 1 Bde instead of 3 ID), but I wanted to keep as many divisions on the map as I could.

Do the guards unit limits go stictly off map counters, or is there some kind of manpower consideration?  It seems like combining 2 guards ID + 1 Bde gives me room to promote another unit to guards status.

It's Feb '42 and I've created 9 Light Howitzer Brigades to soak up some of my spare 2000+ 122mm tubes.
My plan is to use at least these (540 tubes) to start bleeding the Finns, and I'm considering building another 9 brigades of same for use north of Ladoga as well. My question is, can these be combined into Artillery Divisions in Oct '42, or is the 'proper' course to disband them then construct the divisions pulling these same tubes from the pool?

Artillery divisions must be built from scratch, you can't combine arty brigades into them.

That's what I do too....Why use 3 Guards units when 2 can do the trick?
Presumably a 2 div/1 brig combo will require more replacements to reach full Corps TOE, but the way I see it is that the Corps will need to spend some time behind the lines retraining (experience plummets when combining) so they can restock on bodies while training.
To me, the biggest hurdle as the Soviet is the AP limit, never near enough for what needs doing especially during The Great Reorganization in ´42-´43.
So if I can use a brigade-unit that I can't use for anything else anyway, instead of using a division-counter which I'll have to spend APs to recreate, that's a no-brainer.

Hello

Yes

Made the following changes in the TOE(OB) data base relating to Soviet Sappers:


• TOE(OB) 43 Assault Engineer-Sapper Brigade (446) revised to eliminate 12 Sapper Squads with flamethrowers and replace with 10 Rifle Squads, increased Support and brigade upgrades to 44 Assault Engineer-Sapper Brigade (486) in 5/44;
• Added TOE(OB) 44 Assault Engineer-Sapper Brigade (486) with addition of 24 Flamethrower Squads (240 FLAMETHROWERS!) and 9 anti-tank rifles;
• Added TOE(OB) 41 Engineer-Sapper Brigade (499) as Construction type support unit which upgrades (actually gets smaller) to 43 Engineer-Sapper Brigade (500) in 6/43.

Hope it helps...

Omat

Are you saying a flamethrower squad has 10 flamethrowers? I think it's just one flamethrower per squad.

You are confusing the flamethrower squad with the pre-war sapper squad. The Flamethrower squad is exactly what it says a squad composed entirely of men equipped with flamethrowers.

Did the Guards Rifle Division Apr-42 6 change to Mar-42?

In my game against the AI it allowed me to create them the first turn of March 42 using the Airborne Brigades.
