Battles from the Bulge.

Setting up arty barrages to suppress enemy fire (keep their heads down) while assaulting across an open field towards the town.

Setting up a blocking unit on a road - and an AT unit on the side of that road with orders to hold fire until they can see the welds on the armour

Setting up a crap VG unit as enemy arty bait while your crack engineer units sneak in through the back door

Using your fast recce units to scout ahead of your heavy hitters

It's all there in the game.

Greetz,

Eddy Sterckx

I have to agree with Eddy, BftB is the best IMHO at the larger scale...for smaller tactical...take your pick, either WinSPWW2, Close Combat or Combat Mission...

I agree with gabeeg. Steel Panther games (SPWAW, WinSPWW2 and WinSPMBT) are quite good for combined arms on a smaller tactical scale. Arty can be used for suppressive fire, interdiction fire and smoke. Tanks should be protected by infantry in close terrain. Infantry can benefit from tank support in most circumstances.

Panzer General, although it's akin to rock vs. papper vs. scissors.

Combat Mission and Steel Panthers is the best.

    Think Arma 2. The game contains realistic weapons, car models, terrain, weapon ballistics, recoil, reload, identification, damage, character and vehicle movements. Military tactics also reflect the real world, where patience, flanking, and strong cover are essential.
