Lets see what you think about this one, I need a couple of days to test it.
I also have a standalone scenario ''Odessa Disbalanced''- the German 11th army commander sends his reinforcements (Bf 109, Ju 87, 20 M18 and Sturmpionier battalion) to Odessa on day 1. Of course Axis are stronger in this case, I got a BV in 14 turns. The 70th Sturmpionier (combat engineer for those who do not speak German) battalion were T-Rexes of the battlefield and finally took Odessa on day 14. Of course they were supported by artillery and infantry, otherwise they would be massacred.
In fact, there are several things you could try:
- the new 1941 - 1942 campaign
- Odessa disbalanced (I guess the victory time must be reduced for that one)
- Kharkov 1941 (so far only infantry units, one light tank for Slovaks and I did not put a KV in that scenario but the AI buys one)
- Bryansk, only infantry on both sides, 2nd panzer group for Germany and some T-34s around Mzensk.
