Once again, there are all of two rail repair units that the Axis control in the southern part of the front. The rest is up to the AI.
I've asked, but no one has offered to explain, what happened to FBD1 in Pelton's game? Had the rail line it starts NW of Lvov been connected through Proskurov, this 'exploit' from Odessa to the Rumanian border is for naught.
I can't wait for some Russian to waste a brigade dropping on Berlin for giggles.
How? Oh, I forgot, how doesn't matter. When there isn't enough to bitch about people start making things up to bitch about.
Either they were well equipped, supplied, supported, and motivated and could pull off precision drops in '41, or they couldn't.
No in between, huh? Totally binary situation, whereupon we ignore that prior to the '41 invasion the Red Army conducted airborne operations moving brigade size units, and insist it must be 'well equipped, supplied, supported, and motivated and could pull off precision drops in '41' or nothing?
Have you tried dropping a para unit to see what it does to it?
But sorry, others here *are* supporting that, basically claiming because in '41 the SU had pushed a few soldiers out of planes that meant they could drop anywhere (in range of a plane), anytime, effectively, precisely, and consistantly.
Then quote them, because I read the thread and don't see anyone supporting the Red Army's ability to 'drop anywhere (in range of a plane), anytime, effectively, precisely, and consistantly.' You're creating a strawman, and it's not helping to the discussion whatsoever.
By all means, keep up the red herring assaults on Berlin and strawmen arguments about efficacy that no one suggesting airborne has a place in the game are making.
