In GD 1938 what are armored trains for? They have no carry capacity, no land carry capacity and no combat abilities.

They are intended to be a kind of armored unit on rails. The poles used them with some success in Poland, and the Germans thought they might be a good investment, so they produced a few of them. Turned out they were not as good an investment as that. They are limited to rail movement, but i think they have the same stats as heavy tanks, and are quite mobile compared to them. I think they would be best used in defence, as a rapid reaction force.

I looked at combat stats and it had none.

Hrm... Maybe bombur forgot...

I think at the moment it can be used as a giant "meat-shield" meaning it will absorb hits and not really notice it... Thanks for reporting, i´ll see what i can do.
