Well, new player with Panzer Corps but of course not with the associated mechanics (I was an avid PG player).
I'm having some trouble with proper tactics to pull out in defensive scenarios. In the old PG and in the new Panzer Corps I'm a pretty able and decent player on the offensive (combined arms offensive tactics is something I mastered from very early when playing the old PG, and they are as good now as back then). However I'm trying some of the more advanced campaigns (1943 western front) and...lets say I'm getting my ass blasted from one side of southern italy to the extremest point on Sicily. The fact that the landings are happening both in mainland and in the island (unlike n real life) doesn't help either.
I'm kind of trying a forward defence on zones where landings still haven't happened (held palermo that way), and a delaying action elsewhere. In Sicily is kind of working but in Salerno-naples I've got my ass handed back to me. Defence was completely overrun and now I'm facing a huge army, really armor heavy, that I cannot stop or hope to do so. Having that many battleship/cruiser bombardments coming isn't helping either - each time I think I've got a decent line of defence set up, those seaborne bastards come, concentrate fire on the key point of the line which then falls without a problem, and then the flood begins...
It's really a tough one (even more after having so much success on the offensive scenarios), and I guess is because I did everything wrong from the start...the scenario is really hard too because the requirements are really, really ,demanding (retaking all objectives? against -THAT- flood of incoming troops? lol...and even the keep the italian ones isn't exactly easy to pull off).
So...I need some help with defence tactics in general, and some help with scenario-specific tips aswell. Really struggling on this one (is my 1st try, but I'm sincere enough with myself to know that a 2nd or 3rd run won't go much better if I don't change tactics...and I have no idea on what to pull off in this scenario other than what I already tried...)
Thanks a lot in advance :)
