Hi

In case no one has noticed..the engineering trucks cannot load pontoon ferry bridges..regular trucks can load pontoon ferry bridges but than then it looks the bridge loaded the truck instead and by the way the panzer IVH SP3 icon..is out of alignment with the green outline..

any chance for new sound files??
and what about dust raised by firing and tanks and trucks moving around...?

has any one played Kursk 1943 from battlefront...stunning game but unfortunately its a real system hog so make sure you got a really strong computer!!!

Hello Osiris,

Pontoons ARE able to be loaded by engineer trucks. It needs however, several steps:

1. Have a pontoon, a bridge engineer and an engineer truck in the same hex
2. select the bridge engineer and the pontoon and load them (just push the 'load'button)
3 select the engineer truck and the just 'created' combination of pontoon plus bridge engineer and load them.

You will notice then that the enginer truck is loaded with the pontoon and the bridge engineer is 'freed' (for example to load another pontoon). In simple words: you need the bridge engineer to lift the pontoon on the engineer truck.

Further a remark on the other item you've touched; transport of pontoons by normal (non-engineer) trucks. I have a similar experience: a raft can be loaded on a normal truck. As son as such a combination is entering a bridge over a full hex river, the 'unit' thinks that the raft is carrying the truck and is unable to enter any adjacent land hex.


I have discussed these (and more) particularitues in my NL 40 OOST scenario in some debth (to be found on the Wargamers website (Games Depot)


Yours sincerely,

Hajo Baltjes

Hello Jason,

The scenario 'NL 40 Oost' can be found at:

wargamer.com ->community-> games depot-> game Files->Search by Game->select a game->West Front with operation Sea Lion Expansion.

Here you find the scenario 'NL 40 Oost'. In the accompanying Desigers' and Players' Notes you will find the required info.


Greetings,

Hajo
