henri51 -> Planes attacking tanks? (4/9/2012 9:44:37 PM)

Here is a picture showing one of two planes that were circling my tanks for over 5 minutes and apparently dropping bombs. This was a quick battle I had set up.

According to the manual, the only planes are for supplies. So what are these planes doing circling y tanks? No tanks were destroyed, and they had non-fatal hits, but it is unclear if they came from the planes or the armored cars they had just destroyed.

When I forced the ending of the scenarios and looked at the units, no one had any planes, only infantry and AFVs. So where did the planes come from and what were they doing? [&:]

Those are Stukas and you play the russian side, right? So the enemy had an "Luftwaffeleitoffizier" or Airspotter who ordered the birds..

It works like ordering Artillery, but you get just an timer, no target circle..

They are very good ground attack units especialy against gun positions and halftracks, you also get good recon from them..

I think that when you setup a quick battle, artillery and air assets are added to the OOB by the game engine - you don't select them during QB setup. I seem to get different levels of support each time, often none. Perhaps it's linked to the units you select?
