Playing the St. Vith scenario, I gave an order for CCA to attack the ridge just SE of the town. I gave it a FUP and that was it.

The ai decided to lead with a mortar company of one of the CCA's battalions, followed by a company of 57mm towed anti-tank guns. Needless to say, those two units got clobbered.

How come the ai didn't lead with an infantry company or an armored company? Is it just asking too much of the ai to have the combat command plan its own attack?

I'm not really complaining, just wanting to know if I should not try to do this. Most of the time, I give attack orders to individual battalions. I was just curious to see if a combat command would conduct a logical attack. It does not look like that happens.

Check the Tech Support forum. There are a couple of threads that deals with this issue.

Thanks! I never thought of checking the Tech Support sub-forum as I figured it might be a game-play issue. Sounds like it is being looked at and that it does happen when you command at battalion level, not just regimental level.

I'm confident that Dave and crew will fix it.

Jamey,

I'm currently in the US and won't get back to my office in Australia for a few days yet. I'll look into this then. In the meantime can you upload a zipped copy of a saved game that demonstrates this behaviour? Thanks.

Wouldn't let me upload via the forum, so I emailed it to contact@panthergames.com
