It's a special scenario rule. Each side gets X manpower per turn and each unit costs 1 MP, in addition to production.

I know about the cost, I'm playing WaW v30a1 by PBEM, and I don't consider foot troops useful. I still have a few foot divisions in late '41, but I'm trying to provide at least some horses for them all.



Aha! That's the catch! I assumed you are talking about 'normal' AT ... (I haven't played WaW yet, and have NO idea what's going on there)
See, in 'normal' AT a horse unit moves 4 hexes on road AND most of the random games I keep playing don't have that much roads (OK, OK - some do...) so there's a lot of "off-road" movement in which there's not much difference.
I see your point though - very impressive figures.

bwheatly:
click on the unit picture on the main 'battle' map - in the centre column of tables in the upper-right part of the screen you'll see the part that says "StackPts" - this is stacking point value of a unit.
The effect is - as I get it - that you get ADDITIONAL casualties if you have more than 100 stack points in a hex that's being attacked or attacking. (zook08 - correct me if I'm wrong for WaW ... ) Although you can have as many as 150 stack points if you atack from three hexes simultaneously (+a 50% combat bonus) AND 200 stack points if you attack from four hexes (+a 100% combat bonus) Again - this is from 'normal' version - correct me if I'm wrong.

Well, that's it. Cheers!

P.S. I just read about some 'manpower' in one of the recent posts... can you enlighten me, please? Thanks!



Thanks srndac!

its basically that you start the scenario with a certain amount of manpower that you can use. 1 unit = 1 manpower. You get 100 more manpower for each turn so that way you can't really out produce the other guy. :) SO i'm going to have to go all tanks and expensive items since the 120 rifleman a turn is killing my manpower.

Supply is not a problem right now i have 65k extra in OKW from having to produce so much supply LOL. Not maxing out my infantry i produce is going to save me a ton and also goign to let me make a ton of supply and PP every turn.

Does USSR surrender when i take leningrad, moscow & stalingrad?

I flew in the Italian airforce that has been on Malta interdicting traffic to the city north of Kuwait that took care of the enemy that was trying to break me down at kuwait.

I moved the plans from Malta becuase since i've secured greece and the middle east i dont get much enemy supplies moving through my territory.

The enemy spearhead that was thrusting through me around stalingrad area was wiped off the map by my swarm of divebombers that are now DB III. This enabled us to push up to the gates of Stalingrad again and the river line to the south west of stalingrad to hold off attacks.

See the southern front. The bulge in the line was ironed out with help of extreme airpower.

Coming next turn though each front is building 2-3 MEDIUM tanks and 1-2 HEAVY tanks. That should bolster our beleaguered infantry units.

As you can see kills are pretty low this turn but still in my favor.

Once i get russia under control i need to crack gibraltor. Should i invade vichy france to take it or should just build BB's and hammer gibraltor until it can't stay up? Actually i could blockade it on the atlantic side as well and then those units wouldn't get supply right?

Here is the battle i was talking about i'm so very proud of the troops i've been leading. They are doing a remarkable job aganist unbelieveable odds. The Russians and American's both are outproducing us but we manage to hang on one more turn. While we are just one disaster away from complete collapse. Organized chaos.

Here is our northern line. Notice the tanks around moscow now. One heavy tank gives you 65 PP right out of the box even without resting they are truly beasts. And it appears 1 will do just fine per unit! Though my supply usage went upto 22k that from i think 18k so i'm going to have to kill a lot of these buggers off per turn or i'll burn through my 78k reserves pretty fast.

My southern front notice i pushed the red bear back over the river and will make a nice defensive line along there. I also added some tanks to the SS division by Stalingrad and at Riga(i think its called). I didn't want to move right up next to stalingrad yet since i spotted major atry there. I want to give my air units a turn or two to pulverize them to dust before i move in for the kill.

On a good note with everything i built my manpower is still going up!

Looks like my distributed FLAK IV is finally having some effect albeit small on the enemies fighters.

If i can keep this up i might actually make a dent in their airpower.

The blitz worked and i was able to bring Stalingrad down after a prelimiary air attack. Stalingrad is in the Third Reichs hands after years of hard battling.

As you can see the bulk of my forces can now push down the NW road towards moscow. eventually the soviets won't be able to beat me back.

In the south we've started to push through as well. Perhaps the soviets could be falling apart?

2 Soviet tank columns broke through a large gap and are trying to exploit and cut our lines of supply.

The valient flyers of the 109th and 105th Air wings destroyed them one after another.
