Question: I am playing the scenario "Autumn Fog". In the North portion of the map is the British 2nd Army. This Army is in the attack zone of a couple of German Panzer Korps. I have bunched up about 5-6 powerful and elite German Panzer units ready to bash in behind the British 2nd Army. That being said, the British 7. Armored Divisions 22nd Armored Brigade is positioned right where I planned to attack. So, I moved up 2+ German Panzer divisions into the attack zone, and I launched the attack with the two divisions, plus anywhere from 5-10 additional artillery battalions. I have tried attacking this British Armored Brigade about two dozen times over the past hour or so, and I have had odds anywhere from 10-1 to 28-1 in the Germans favor, and yet each and every time the 22. Armored Brigade inflicts huge losses on the Germans. I finally took a couple of screen shots to show just how absurd the odds were in the Germans favor, and yet each every time the 22. Armored Brigade devastates the German Panzer units. I had to double check to make sure that the 22. Armored Brigade wasn't armed with the newest 2019 British Main Battle tanks (i.e. Challenger 2). I must have tried this particular battle around 20 different times, and each time I came up with the Germans suffering around 20%+ casualties, and the British suffering around 5% casualties, even though I had overwhelming odds. As a side note, the British unit is not dug in at all (0% entrenchment), they are in open terrain, and the British unit even had a low efficiency of around 60%. Never the less, one would think this was a time warp, and the WWII Germans were going up against modern British units.
I have included a screen shot to show the incredible odds which the Germans had.
Does anyone have any input on why, with absolutely overwhelming odds, the Germans are suffering such huge losses? Thanks.
