My '41 campaign game is now in January 1943 . There was a lone panzer division, showing a CV of 23, so I figure it must be fatigued, that I attacked with 1 Tank Corps, 2 Cav Corps and 9 Rifle Divisions. Support units included 2259 Arty (vs 144) plus rocket, mortar and tank regiments. Galitsky is commanding and has good ratings (7 morale, 6 Inf. Except for one unit, Morale and Experience is in the range from 48 to 53. Started with two bombing attacks total of 230 planes (vs 25). And another 250 vs 160 in Ground support
Battle result is a German retreat. Seven tanks damaged and and 9 destroyed (6 and 6 in the ground attack).
So, my question is, what else do I need to kill more German tanks?
Use more Sturmoviks. Use them before the attack, use them during the attack, and use them after the German PZ division retreats. Rinse repeat.
I normally concentrate on German Infantry myself. You can get more casualties that way & the sooner you reduce that number (German Manpower) the better.
