I would say you should always be able to find a corps HQ for every unit without going over the limit. Each army should be able to have three or four corps hQs in it without going over the limit, but you might need to have some corps HQs independent of armies. Indeed you can usually extend the command space many times by moving corps HQs out of armies and have them independent. And if need be assign unis directly to army HQs.
In particular remember to
i) Reassign all garrison and wintering units to OKH. Units sitting still in the rear, especially on a rail line, do not need to be assigned to a lower HQ
ii) Reassign German units to Finnish HQs if you capture both Leningrads. Finnish HQs have great leaders and not enough Finnish units to go in them - use them for the Germans.
iii) Use 103RHG HQ as a "corps" HQ - you can put independent regiments like the Croats and Danes in there, all cavalry units, the Slovak security division which has the ToE of an infantry unit and even have infantry divisions in there if you first assign them before they upgrade to a division from a brigade. Why waste this command space when you can turn it into a decent enough combat HQ
iv) Put German units under allied HQs. You have lots of Rumanian, Hungarian and Italian HQs to use. I do not understand the horror some have at this suggestion. It happened historically. And a southern allied commander does have better ratings than an overloaded German one.
Ya i have been keeping corps short in some armies because of not wanting army to go over.
Ya my garrison forces have been attached to OKH.
Good idea. How much of a hit does corps take attaching to an army group instead of an army?
Taking divisions out that are in winter quarters is good idea. I was thinking of doing that as I do have enough admin points.
I only have 2 corp finns and 2 finn armies i think. I dont have game in front of me. Ya i got Leningrad with my finns 4-5 hexes away from cherepovets ? Finns Corps have 4 finns divisions in them already.
Great idea, YA cuz those German security dont need to be attach to those security corps. I do have my security corps full of construction units to move railway lines.
Ya i have lots of unused RU corps as i have a lot of RU bridges and divisions on cities right now. I might have to try this out.
How much of a hit do u take say at -1 at corp to like -4, -6.
Also do u keep your best inf, mech leaders at corp and as command goes up do you focus more on morale, admin and initiative? I find leaders like Model, Rendulic and Weiss so strong for those tough urban areas in Leningrad, Moscow, Sevastopol, with infantry units as Corp Commanders.
Like I feel like Manstein is a waste being a Panzer Group Leader. I still have very good leaders above them, but I feel u want the best at Corp. I also keep my army 5 hexes to battles that are very important.
