From: Genoa, Republic of Genoa (occupied by Italy)
I'm looking forward to use those 82mm mortars. No chance of a nice 120mm?
In the "100 men" scenario, the Germans have a 81mm MTR entering as a reinforcement, and it moved (straight in the sights of a U.S. MMG, but this is another story ).
In the scenario I am working on, conversely, I added a 81mm MTR to the German OOB: it never moves (and seldom fires); this is also valid for a couple AT guns. I think that ordnance moves are dictated by the settings (hold/attack), but I have not yet checked this hypothesis opening the above scenario in the Editor.
P.S. As regards to AI unit placement, I noticed that the AI always deploys its units in the terrain having the highest TEM and without adverse effects (e.g. immobilization chance for AFVs). In the above scenario, I set up two deployment areas, each one of them including a vast area:
- Deployment area #1 includes stone buildings and rubble, woods, shellholes, orchard and brush terrain; AI units consist of infantry only, and they always set up in stone buildings.
- Deployment area #2 includes stone buildings and rubble, woods, shellholes, orchard, brush and open terrain. AI infantry units always set up in stone buildings, ordnance sets up in woods and AFVs set up in open ground/brush.
