Lining up to attack a strong prepared Soviet position. I shift-click to select several adjacent stacks. When I look at the panel to the left, all the units are listed but the unit icon next to the panzer divisions is not selected. When I click on it, it appears but when I try to make the attack either the attack won't process or it does process but the panzer divisions aren't included. Are the tank guys so snooty that they won't work alongside the infantrymen?

The MP cost for a deliberate attack by a motorised unit is a lot higher than if it is non-motorised - so the most common reason for this is they just do not have enough MPs. Could that be it?

This is a good reality feature because most savvy commanders will not use mobile formations to engage prepared defenses. Best plan for armor/mech is to bypass prepared defenses when possible; next best is to hold armor in reserve until infantry, artillery and CAS can accomplish/sustain a breakthrough.

Deliberate attack costs for mot/arm

Normal 16mp
Minor river 16mp + 3mp
Major river 16mp + 12mp
