i have stacked Harder with Brinkmann. brinkmann is on top, Harder is the reserve BG.
when i go to use teams in the reserve BG, [ Harder] i cannot get the Jag 4 to be availible for Brinkmann. the only slot availible is in the infantry column in brinkmann for a reserve squad and you cant put a tank there of course.

if you have Harder on top then you limit your amount of squads, but you get the tank.

am i missing something or is this just an anomaly with these two BG"s? if i put harder with another BG as reserve will i get a slot for the tank?

Sounds like it is working properly.

well perhaps, but why would there not be a slot for a vehicle or support open instead?? Harder is in reserve, so that means that the attacking BG is looking for some support from the reserve BG.

Did some testing and the game doesn't seem to want to let you use that Jag 4.
- I cleared all the spots in the Brinkmann BG
- Tried 2 other BG's as the primary BG
- Tested Harder by itself and the Jag 4 is a default squad/unit

thanks Tejszd......i couldnt figure out a way to get brinkmann to take the tank either. so are we thinking Bug? the Harder BG by itself is a pretty small BG and will get eaten up pretty quik by the Brits, so it needs to be with another BG but if you cant get the tank unless you use the BG by itsself then its rather pointless.

i dont no if harder gets more squads later in the GC but as of sept 19th at 6;00 its a 6 squad waste of space other than the tank.

I'm leaning toward a bug. But Steve might be able to explain some condition/rule we're not aware of....

The reserve BG adds 1/3 of it's available slots (round down) as 'extra slots' when supporting the front line BG.  KG Harder only has 2 support slots, so it does not add a slot for support to the front line BG, and you can't get the JPIV that way.  You could merge them, though.

Thanks for the additional information on how it works.

Since tanks are so critical and if using standard rounding rules 2/3 would round to 3 could this be changed in a patch when 1/3 results is less than 1???

thanks for the info on KG harder steve.
im with Tejszd on his suggestion tho....any chance?

your suggestion about merging KG harder with brinkmann brings up another question too steve......does Harder get any major reinforcements later on in the GC? and this would apply to any BG in the game...if you merge Harder and it does have reinforcemnts that come later in the GC, would harder even tho its merged still get the reinforcments into the the now merged BG??

Merged BGs have the absorbed BG's reinforcements added to the resulting BG's.  So you don't lose anything by merging them.

Harder gets some infantry reinforcements, but no tanks or heavy weapons.

It is unlikely that the ratio of slots given by the reserve BG will be changed in an update, but I'll keep it in mind.

Steve
