In axis strategy not sure I understand the below comment you made in PDF. Seems counter intuitive ..

quote:


Always check the n. of divisions against the number of Corps HQs: adding a division to reach a
total that can be exactly divided by 4 will give you a CV penalty; on the contrary sending West or
disbanding a division to go below an exact multiple of 4 will increase your CV.

I think it means that if you are on the exact limit of (number of divisions / number of corps HQ) that gives you a CV penalty, which is 4, and you remove a division from the eastern front, the gain from avoiding the CV penalty will be greater than the loss from one less division.

That's a threshold problem from the game, ideally it should be something more progressive.

Great work Bamilus - thx a lot!

My wishlist for upcoming updates:

+ clearer structure (for example Axis: Land/Air/Supply/Production etc) and a table of content at the beginning - that will make it easier to find the search information, if you need just a specific info
+ loadout overview (for example - when better using WerferGr.21 or 2X20mm Pods for the Bf109)
+ lessons learned sections at the end of each chapter for example FlaK chessboard over Belgium/Netherlands vs FlaK cluster Ruhrgebiet/Hamburg
+ do and dont section for allies/axis
+ invasion prep list

...some ideas, coming into my mind when using the guide.

Not sure if you have seen them, but I've made a tentative invasion checklist in another post. If you want to use it.http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3783270

Your comment about manually swapping out P47s for P38s and P51s caught my eye. I recently red a book called "The Men Who the Luftwaffe". In it the author comments that mid-late '44 by providing bigger drop tanks, making design changes, and modifying tactics and procedures the P47 had almost the same escort range and 38s and 51s. Is this gradual range upgrade reflected in WiTW for P47s?

Early P-47Ds start with 75gal DT and will later receive 110 and 150 gal DT (single tank under fuselage), later Ds may have 110/150 one tank under fuselage or two of them underwing.
AFAIR they were never able to achieve the ranges of P-38/-51

Ok I have to agree. That said, here are several quotes from "The Men Who Killed The Luftwaffe": "Variants of the P-47 were introduced during the spring of 1944, which along with many other features, included nearly 20 percent more fuel. So with more internal fuel and two 108-gallon drop tanks - one under each wing - the P47 was finally able to range over a great part of Germany. The availability of the 150-gallon steel drop tanks by mid-1944 made it that much better. The P47 ...finally had the range to escort the bombers deep into Germany". I see from the 1944 D-Day start that two 108-gallon drop tanks give the P47 in the game a range of 43 miles, while the 150-gallon drop tank only gives it a range of 38 miles. Those ranges do not seem to reflect 'deep' into Germany. Am I missing something here/

OK - I see the obvious contradiction. My point is that 43 hexes doesn't hit as me being able to escort 'deep' into Germany.
