Just returned to the game and have a quick question. Do Soviet naval infantry brigades upgrade to Guard status?

Thanks in advance!

They can be used to make Rifle Corps. They are good additions since they have high morale and experience. They probably could get wins easier with their higher skills. But there is no automatic upgrade AFAIK.

But do they become Guard units? Actually in my game they have garnered a series of victories against the Finns, but while other infantry units seem to become Guard units, they don't.

Thanks! They've been the stalwart defenders of the north for me, but now its better to have them reassigned elsewhere so normal divisions can take their place and earn their keep...

Naval Rifle Brigades = standard Rifle brigades so their limit(s) apply
Naval Infantry Bdes = special brigades, no idea about possible guards conversion

Naval infantry brigades? Are you sure? Normal infantry brigades, sure, but naval infantry?

Besides I have never seen them get guard status, altough, afaik, there is nothing preventing it

Manual says you can as of v. 1.03. But I'm trying it out and that appears to be inaccurate.

Also, I ran three Naval Infantry Brigades up to an automatic guards promotion level (15 victories, 4 defeats in 1942, so 15 plus the year modifier of 2 is guaranteed to be greater than 8 plus Rnd(8), 15 plus 2 is greater than 9, and 15 plus 2 is greater than 4 plus 2). No, they can't become guards.

If they're supposed to (as the documentation suggests) then this is a bug.

I'm with um No Idea on this.

Never seen a guards one but more importantly once destroyed they don't get replaced. Finite resource.

Naval infantry brigades (do not mistake them with naval rifle brigades) are bonus units that do not upgrade nor become guards nor returned if destroyed.
You also cannot create them.

Use them as a bonus. For a brigade they are quite good.

OK, didn't understand the difference between Naval Infantry and Naval Rifle. Thanks, Stelteck.

Naval rifle brigades (unlike naval infantry brigades) are normal rifle brigades than can upgrade, be promoted, etc...
