This update brings the beta version official, and it brings a lot of improvements!

Hundreds of changes to both gameplay, scenarios and data continue to improve realism and overall game balance!

Significant improvements include improved weather tables, improvements to both ground and air combat, rebalancing of attrition and retreat losses, improved logistic management, more realistic reserve commitment as well as modeling counter-attacks and fighting withdrawals!

There are more improvements than we can really list here, so be sure to check out the full list of changes!

You can download the update from here

New features

    1. Removed the requirement for air groups to have flown 0% miles to participate in airfield bombing, unit bombing and city bombing missions. These missions will now be limited to 3 per hex, with the exception of airfield bombing missions during German June 22nd, 1941 turn. There is still a requirement of having flown 0% miles for air group transfer or move to National Reserve, for air group using non-transport aircraft to participate in a transport mission (as transports, not escorts), and for any air group to participate in a transport mission at night.

    2. Made sure that when attaching support units using the “ASSIGN” function, units from higher level HQ are chosen before units from lower level HQ.

    3. Reworked aircraft support need, so that fighter and transport types have higher support need (as it is now based on maximum of two values: max load and sortie ammo), but other types have lower support need, as multiplier used to calculate need was reduced from 10 to 4.

    4. Updated weather tables, see Appendix A. The rule preventing more than one Snow in December will not apply to Europe weather zone. There will be no mud in July 1941.

    5. Increased the impact of experience during combat, so that units with low experience may fire less.

    6. Final odds will no longer affect losses in battle, or chance to rout.

    7. Retreat losses will be affected by unit’s vehicle shortage, rather than unit’s support squad shortage. The number of support squads in units, and their ratio to other elements, is decided by the TOE and player has no way to affect this, whereas with vehicles there is some measure of control.

    8. It will be now possible for the attacker to lose trucks during post-battle attrition, as well as for the defender to capture some equipment from the attacker.

    9. Victorious side in battle will also suffer post-battle attrition, where some additional elements can be captured, damaged or destroyed, but it will be very light.

    10. It will be now possible for the defender to make a counterattack (when battle was won) or a fighting withdrawal (when battle was lost). In order to execute these maneuvers, average experience of defending units must be higher than average experience of attacking units. The chance to execute a counterattack is then 50 + defender’s average experience - attacker’s average experience, and the chance to execute a fighting withdrawal is 75 + defender’s average experience - attacker’s average experience. If a counterattack is successful, it means attacking forces will suffer losses comparable to normal retreat losses (of course without the impact of rivers, retreating extra hexes, or retreating through ZOC). If a fighting withdrawal is successful, it means defending forces will suffer losses comparable to normal attacker losses (in case of a failed attack, without a counterattack). If such event happens it will be displayed next to “Forces Defending” text, where (C) stands for counterattack, and (W) for fighting withdrawal.

    11. Elements damaged in battle will be presented separately in battle reports instead of half of the number of damaged elements being added to the number of lost elements. The only exception is list of battles in Commander’s Report, where the number of damaged elements will be added to the number of lost elements.

    12. It will be now impossible to disband Army Group/Front HQs, non-Soviet Army HQs, and rail repair unit (FBD/NKPS). Only Soviet SAD and SAB air bases will be disbandable.

    13. Minimum TOE% for HQ units (including air bases and rail repair units) is 50% instead of 20%.

    14. Improved ground element conversion/upgrade/swap procedure to optimize huge armaments drain and general slowness of converting/upgrading/swapping obsolete elements to new elements that are built on-demand (especially those of class infantry and mechanized infantry), causing drop in army’s overall strength. Previously, the procedure attempted to add missing elements as well (up to TOE requirements), which had to be built using armaments and paired with free manpower. This reduced the chance for that operation to happen in case of resource shortages. This was done to make “meaningful” conversions/upgrades/swaps, that wouldn’t be reversed soon because of low element count. However, it was not feasible to, for example, convert all rifle squads in German army in July 1943 this way. The army should be already understrength at this point, and there would be not enough free manpower to refill all units to the maximum of their TOE requirements with rifle squads. Only those squads that are currently present in units should be converted, with minimum armaments and manpower expenditure. So the improved procedure does just that - if current element is out of production, it will only try to convert/upgrade/swap ready elements (with increased chance to happen, most in case of conversions, least in case of swaps).

    15. Automated air group aircraft swaps will not switch Soviet transport and recon groups to U-2 variants.

    16. Building of elements that are expected to be needed will be blocked when there will be more than 100 or more than four weeks worth of production in the active pool.

    17. Improved German and Finnish repair of damaged elements in units by 5%.

    18. It will be now possible to set air groups to “Only upgrade” aircraft change mode, where swaps will be disabled, but automatic upgrades will be allowed.

    19. Super heavy and naval guns will not suffer retreat/withdrawal attrition, and will be repaired with 99% efficiency.

    20. Scenario check utility will report possible errors where non-support units have: a) both delay and frozen larger than 0; b) delay larger than 0 and map location set; c) frozen larger than 0 and no map location set.

    21. Upon loading a saved game for the first time using this version, the game will attempt to clear frozen status of certain units, so they would be useable as intended. One such example is Italian 8th Army and its subordinate units.

    22. Air groups performing transport missions will not lose morale from planes that require maintenance, only from those that perform a crash landing. Such planes will count as reserve now, not damaged.

    23. Air groups will now have a chance to increase their morale by actions other than downing enemy planes. Destroying ground elements, planes on the ground (both with 50% chance), damaging factories, delivering cargo without damaging the plane, and performing successful recon missions (all three with 20% chance) may result in morale increase, though smaller than in case of destroying a plane in the air. Please note, if morale is higher than experience, the chance for growth this way is small.

    24. Aircraft destroyed on the ground will count as ground kills now, not air kills.

    25. Temporarily motorized or entrained units will not be eligible for air transport. Motorized (also temporarily) para units will not be eligible for para drop. Clarification: motorized units were already not eligible for air transport, and loaded para units were not eligible for para drop.

    26. Fort units will be able to resupply up to 100% of their needs, even if outside their HQ’s supply range.

    27. Unit details window will now display second instead of third (in command chain) HQ next to the “OHQ:” label. It will be impossible to reassign unit by clicking that name (which wasn’t highlighted by proper “link” color, but was clickable). OHQ will not be displayed for high command-level HQs, and for units assigned to them (only HHQ, that is HQ they are attached directly to).

    28. Reworked unit and leader reassignment rules, removing possible exploits, and made sure automatic reassignment will follow the same rules as manual reassignment. It will be now impossible to assign corps sized units (combat and rail repair) to corps-level HQs, as well as to reassign army group-level HQs. It will be now possible to reassign units when having 0 AP, provided that reassignment is free (for example down the chain of command), as well as to assign air HQs to high command-level HQs. It will be now impossible to assign units to, or change leaders of frozen or immobile HQs, with the exception of high command, army group, and air army-level HQs. It will be now impossible to reassign support units attached to frozen or immobile units, with the exception of those attached to fort units, as well as high command, army group and air army-level HQs. It will be now impossible to attach more than 8 air bases to German corps-level air HQs, and more than 16 air bases to German army-level air HQs (also, no more than 8 air bases may be assigned to German army-level air HQ directly). Automatic reassignment will now prefer HQs of the same nationality much more than before, and will try to choose HQs with lowest CP load in case multiple HQs of the same level will be in the same range.

    29. Information about air group withdrawal or disbandment will be displayed in hex tooltip, in the same way as for units. To conserve space, information about unit and air group withdrawal or disbandment will be shown only for units and air groups withdrawing or disbanding during the next 30 turns. To compensate, that information will albo be displayed in their respective details windows.

    30. Air base aviation support need (AV) will be displayed in Commander’s Report, in the “SupL” column. It will be now easier to find overloaded air bases.

    31. Units will now be able to upgrade TOE when more than 30 MP from railhead. Units will get a 5% bonus to the basic 20% chance to upgrade TOE for every full month after TOE start date (assuming 6/41 as minimum possible).

    32. When assigning AA unit to Axis-controlled cities, made sure that proper national high command-level HQ unit will be chosen to pull AA units from. For Yougoslavian cities it will be Italian HQ; for Polish, Czech, Bulgarian and Soviet cities it will be German HQ, with the exception of cities that Finland and Rumania can draw manpower from (Karelian and Bessarabian cities).

    33. Impassable hex sides will remain impassable even when ice level will reach 8.

    34. Added several new checks to the editor: SAD/SAB airbases either existing or reinforcing after 2/42; units where majority of support elements is damaged; units having either supply, fuel, ammo or vehicles below 50% of need (75% in case of delayed units). The last two checks apply only to units having more than 5% of TOE.

    35. Added optional ability to the editor’s “Clean Up” function, so that on-map units can be resupplied to 50% of needs (supply/ammo/fuel/vehicles), in the same way as delayed units are resupplied to 75% of needs.

    36. Updated national morale tables, see Appendix B.

    37. Reduced factory evacuation costs by 20% (rounding up). It will be now possible to evacuate factories from cities in enemy ZOC, but the cost to evacuate will be doubled.

    38. Added new ground element type, Heavy Armored Car, with parameters similar to normal Armored Car, but recon value reduced from 4 to 3, CV increased from 4 to 5, and HE as default ammo type.

    39. Leader initiative will be increased by 1 for rolls on behalf of Soviet on-map artillery units that have expended no more than 6 MP this turn. Bear in mind that MP are substracted at start of battle, so the net effect should be that the first attack of an umoved artillery unit will benefit from this bonus. Therefore the chance to pass initiative roll shown in supply details window will include this bonus only for units that have not yet expended a single MP.

    40. Soviet on-map units destroyed after 10/41 (as well as units other than Rifle, Motorized and Tank Divisions destroyed before 11/41) will return as nearly empty reinforcements in 2 to 4 turns. Such units will keep their name, TOE, corps affiliation (in case of divisions), and component division names (in case of corps). Their morale, experience, and win/loss counters will be reset to default values. This process will cost AP (though lack of points will not prevent units from returning): 15 for Corps, 5 for Divisions and Brigades being part of a Corps, 3 for other Brigades and 1 for other units. Forts, Partisans, Airborne, Mountain, Naval, NKVD Border Regiments, as well as Soviet Rumanian, Polish, and Czech units will not be eligible to return.

    41. Destroyed units of Axis allies, as well as all Axis support units will return as German on-map units do. On-map units will be frozen on refit for 3 turns with MAX TOE set to 50. Usually they will be placed in westernmost city having the same nationality. Support units will arrive at their national HQ with MAX TOE set to 50. There will be a message in the logistics log for every such unit.

    42. MAX TOE setting will now be visible for frozen or withdrawing units in unit details window.

    43. Added new ground element type, Medium Flak/AT, with parameters similar to normal Medium Flak, but not treated as “rear area gun” (which reduces losses, but also the ability to fire on enemy elements), and AP as default ammo type.

    44. It will be now possible to use light armored cars in place of armored cars (and vice versa).

    45. No side will call reserve units to join combat if the expected final odds are outside 1:5 to 5:1 range.

Bug fixes

    1. Fixed a bug where German support units attached to HQs and sent into combat were suffering from 22 June 1941 Turn Surprise Rules, which negatively affected their experience.

    2. Fixed a bug where it was possible to see morale and percent of miles flown for enemy air groups, provided the air base they were attached to had detection level 5 or better.

    3. Fixed a bug where it was impossible for the defender to capture attacker’s damaged elements.

    4. Fixed a bug where an airbase must not have moved to be usable for purposes of airhead supply distribution. It should be usable even if moved, provided it stays in a hex that was under friendly control at start of turn (like for other kinds of airdrops).

    5. Fixed a bug where 50% of cargo delivered to an airbase for purposes of airhead supply distribution was converted to fuel, even if units didn’t want that much fuel, and thus it was not delivered (wasted).

    6. Fixed a bug where withdrawing units that had to remain on map to receive replacements were always reattached to O.K.H. instead to their national HQ.

    7. Fixed a bug where it was possible to attach Corps HQ units to RHG HQ unit.

    8. Fixed some bugs related to U-2 aircraft in transport and recon variants (air group type matching, proper night fly selection).

    9. Fixed a bug where too many (possibly all) support squads were converted to rifle squads under certain circumstances, like newly arrived shell units that have just received their first replacements. Limited support squad conversion to 10% of those ready.

    10. Fixed a bug where all units were assumed to be on railhead, in refit mode and set to 100% TOE when calculating the number of elements that were expected to be needed. This resulted in too many armaments spent on elements that were later not used.

    11. Fixed a bug where Axis rail modifier was affecting units twice when it comes to receiving replacements.

    12. Fixed a bug where attacking air groups were not suffering morale losses from downed planes as did defending air groups (in air-to-air combat).

    13. Fixed a bug where unit’s HQ was invisible in unit details window for frozen units.

    14. Fixed a bug in the replacement system, where it sent back unmatched elements, even if they were required to fulfill group (for example AT gun need, with light, medium and heavy AT guns counted as one) need.

    15. Fixed a typo in Commander’s Report (“Air Comnand”).

    16. Fixed a bug in the editor’s “Clean Up” function, which reduced delayed units to 75% of needs (if they were above) instead of resupplying them to that level (if they were below).

    17. Fixed a bug where it was possible to change MAX TOE of partisan units.

    18. Fixed a bug causing memory corruption during unit merging.

    19. Fixed a bug which prevented upgrades of super heavy artillery elements (only swaps should be blocked).

    20. Fixed a bug where victory conditions were not reset properly for campaign games, resulting in “Alt VC260” games still requiring 290 VP for decisive Axis victory.

Scenario changes

    1. Fixed permanently frozen Italian 8th Army units in multiple scenarios, as well as some Hungarian and Rumanian units (some were disabled).

    2. Synchronized setup of several Rumanian and Hungarian units between several scenarios.

    3. Fixed setup of Rumanian transport air groups.

    4. Fixed wrong size of Rumanian air units in “Stalingrad to Berlin Campaign” and “Winter 1942-43”.

    5. Fixed reinforcements arriving without adequate supplies, fuel, ammo, and/or vehicles.

    6. Altered XII Corps disband date to 10/44 (destroyed 7/44 during Bagration, survivors used to form 6th Panzer Army, which became active in 11/44 in the west).

    7. Altered XXX Corps disband date to 11/44 (destroyed 8/44 during Bagration, reformed 12/44, and used in the west).

    8. Altered XIII Corps disband date to 12/44 (destroyed 7/44 during Bagration, survivors used to form Grossdeutschland Korps, which became active in 1/45; XIII Corps reformed 1/45, and used in the west).

    9. Removed misplaced 122mm field guns from Soviet rifle divisions in scenarios starting in the summer of 1941.

    10. Fixed Rumanian corps/army artillery setup.

    11. Updated Italian factories in various scenarios, to work with new build limits and upgrade paths.

    13. Switched Hanko Rifle Brigade to correct TOE in Road to Leningrad.

    14. Changed Führer Begleit, Führer Grenadier and von Werthern units to Axis Elite and correct TOE in several scenarios.

    15. Added disbands for various Panzer Brigades (101st, 102nd, 103rd, 104th, 109th, 110th, Gross SS), which were merged into other units in late 1944. In some smaller scenarios they withdraw instead.

    16. Rebuilt Feldherrnhalle and Kurmark Panzergrenadier Divisions according to new TOE (more Panzers, less StuGs). In some smaller scenarios they withdraw instead of disbanding.

    17. L.A.H., Das Reich, Totenkopf, and Wiking SS Motorized/Panzergrenadier Divisions changed to unit-specific TOEs in all scenarios.

    18. Disabled East Prussian Army in some scenarios, where 2nd Army is present (was renamed in 4/45).

    19. Added SdKfz-251 Panzerwerfer factory in Hannover in certain scenarios starting 5/44 or later.

    20. Degraded supply status of some HQs in several late war scenarios.

With such a long release note it is hard to tell: Is this release the same as the 1.08.08 beta or are there differences?

Thanks, R

For gameplay, it should be the same.

1.08.08 official is the same as 1.08.08 beta.
1.08.09 beta is something new.

Just downloaded 1.08.08

couple of things?

1- has the4 manual been updated with the new info?

2- the links to the manuals (such as Updated Game Manual) on the initial game start screen no longer seem to work?

Based on my current game with Stef I think this is overpowered. Soviet player can by reckless because with all the production there no reason to be cautious. At least guards should not come back as guards.

On the other hand, it is not realistic to have the SU sitting on a lot of manpower/armaments without the ability to use them.
200 000men sitting around idle because the bureaucrats at STAVKA do not type the orders/unit designations fast enough on their typewriters???

If you destroy fast enough this sucks Soviet pools dry, and they will have a lot of 20% TOE shells, and frontline units will get less replacements. Sure, it was made to prevent AP crunch as strategy, while also trying to discourage AP hoarding, and finally to represent USSR as a hydra that it was, but all they get are weak low morale ants (even more so, as replacements have lower quality now), so it's a good tradeoff IMHO.

The Soviet player SHOULD be reckless, because that's how they were in real life. Rifle Divisions at 30-40% strength was not an uncommon thing at all. IIRC, a Rifle Div at 60% was considered to be "high-strength assault unit" by Soviet standards. This is because the Soviet strategy was to build/re-build as essentially new units and field as many units as possible, rather than the more western military philosophy of maintaining and resting/rotating units in the line. Having Soviet units re-build mercilessly is what exasperated the German high-command. They thought they were destroying/eliminating plenty of Divisions, only to find them back again in a matter of weeks.

I'm glad they added this feature to the game. It makes a historical Soviet OOB much more of a possibility.

Now that I re-read this, the rule should include Soviet Cavalry as NOT re-building. Historically, they never re-built any Cav units.
