Guards Tank Corps - 5/30/2019 3:52:28 AM

First turn that tank corps can be formed (4/2/42). I put two Guards Tank Brigades and one regular Tank Brigade together in a hex, all under the same HQ, and hit buildup/breakdown units. Nothing happens. Three regular brigades in another hex succeed in forming a Tank Corps. What's up? Is there a different date when Guards Tank Corps become available? Should I just put single GTB's with two regulars, make a regular corps, and hope they promote later?

Doesn't say so in the manual and I've never seen it.

Is it possible that the non-guards unit has so few wins that it drags the overall wins for the corps below that needed for guard status?

... or you already have too many. Not likely I think.

Just tested it and yes, they must have at least one movement point. Not in the manual so I'll add it.
