I've have played this operation from the German side up until turn 5 over and over again. It's the op i am using to learn the game and tune my system to run the game well. while i think its not much of a briefing it seems pretty accurate, at least from the german side. the units are encircled down south and you cant retreat west or northwest because of the oncoming russians. I think you need to go to the left. The briefing says breakout east and try to link up with the recon platoon, which is located on the left of the map. I've tried going east[assuming left is east], southeast, south, but i've never tried north. I tried holding in place until relieved and got pretty well creamed [not much in anti-tank assets].you have got soviet troops also coming from the northeast moving south or southeast, probably that recon force. Like i said i havent played it out yet so i'm not sure what my results would be when i finished it. I finally think i have a good handle on the game and have my system tuned for the game.I have restarted and I'm going to play through to the end. It's pretty sweet that the AI, while some moves may be generally the same it makes alot of different moves. Like i said i've restarted this op at least 5 times and i can say its been different [especially on the tac map] every time.
i do have a couple of questions for you if you dont mind. In this OP have you ever taken out a russian tank with the infantry? when i tried to hold in place I tried and tried, it says they have grenades and mines but i get them close, sneak up on the tank and order an assault and nothing. I've tried hiding them in woods and holding fire but still no luck and this is at night in the snow. Second question, for anyone actually it says they have mines, are we able to use them? if so how.
Hold on, isn't East on the right on the strategic map? Don't tell me that on Soviet maps, East is on the left...
No tanks destroyed yet, when I stopped playing the tanks had only just started to cream my platoon holding the tree line, no tanks had been destroyed yet and I had lost one infantry to the tanks. This was not very surprising to me, which is why I wanted to get the heck out of there before the tanks arrived. When I realized that my top units had hit a wall, I changed my mind and instead of scooting out from the tree line, I figured that they would have a better chance to survive if they stayed put...
