I unfortunately lost the T-34 war machine (2) in Leningrad 1944 scenario.
He was in a forward position without support and fell into an ambush against at least 3 German units...





I will now take great care of the other T-34 war machine (1).

Smolensk 1943(2nd Smolensk)(1/2)


Briefing:

It would seem logical to put the Orders first before the conditions of victory:

Warzaw 1945


Soviet bombers should not be deployed directly above the airport, they are each time immediately in contact with the German fighters :

The scenario does not show the correct number of turns remaining: Turn .../16 and not Turn .../15 (Turns comparision should be greater than in the Editor).

Prague 1945

2 comments in the player’s objectives:

- error in Normal Victory text: brilliant victory -> normal victory

- the time conditions are in the middle of the text. In this scenario, it is important to go fast and the time conditions could be more visible by placing them at the end of the text ?

Hi terminator,

Speaking of war machines, the Soviet campaign is long enough so after 6 or so missions you may even get a unit with 5 stars.

In Panzer General II tanks were used for finishing enemy units that are almost defeated - something similar can be done here.
And of course a war machine is a part of a team - it can be supported with other tanks, artillery, air etc. It also needs good battlefield intelligence. An unsupported unit against an unknown enemy is likely to get killed.

From the German experience - a tank division is a part of a larger formation like a tank army (equivalent of a German panzer group/army.)

A Soviet war machine could be a T-34 and upgraded to IS-2 as soon it becomes available. It would be supported by self-propelled guns, artillery and an infantry unit for taking the cities.

Strong air support is also important, it provides battlefield intelligence and helps to avoid nasty surprises. A recon battalion is useful for knowing who is ahead, helping to avoid situations when a tank division may get ambushed.

Air support - the best fighter you have by then, some general bombers and a couple of specialised antitank planes (Il 2).

The Soviets also formed mixed mechanized and cavalry forces and, unlike Germans, they had more than one cavalry division.

IS-2 is cheaper than the T-34-85 :

Some impressive kill lists.

Do you have a picture of your force by the end of 1945? I guess there is some heavy armor in it.

The Soviet Cavalry is not very strong at the beginning of the war, it is only with the upgrades and the experience that these units will reveal all their potential.

Leningrad 1944

- Typo: Brillant victory -> Brilliant victory

- Russian infantry units don’t have the right orientation, we have the impression that they are fleeing

Sea of Azov (1/2)

Objectives:
- typo: Domniate -> Dominate
- Dnepr = Dnieper (it would be better to keep the same term)
- where is Saparoshe on the map ?

Hi terminator,

Saporoshe (you may also find the name Zaporozhye in Russian sources) is the whole region where the fighting takes place. Maybe the city of Zaporozhiza is meant?

About the river - it is better if one name is always used, to avoid confusion.

That is a German objective from 1941. The Soviets in 1944 needed to eliminate the presence of German navy in Sevastopol and clear the pocket behind their lines.
