I launched a DC ardenne offensive grand campaign against the AI (AI compuation time normal, difficulty Challenging (minor bonus like 10% for combat/movement).
Here the situation after 2 complete days from the start of the offensive if you are interested.
The map is big so i limited the view to the well known Bastogne Area.
Also the picture is in french, but may still be usefull.
2 Panzer divisions (panzer lehr et 2nd Pz SS rushed bastogne from two differents axis, and now are very close de Bastogne. They pierced 35km in 2 days. The city do not look too well defended. No traces of Paratroopers. I'am probably early. Nice.
Heavy Tanks of both those heavy divisions went though brute force following major road, destroying everything in their path. But tons of small (or less small) US units where pushed in the forest and minor road around and now they are a threat to the supply lines.
It is the jobs of the mediocre VolsGrenadiers division (feet and horses) to finish them, and it take a lot of time.
The supply line is the "ravito" pink line, which zig zag to avoid battle zones. Currently due to that the supply is not perfect at the front line.
Also, if i go on rushing with no brakes for my panzer (as it should be), i will have no fuel left in 2 more days. The fuel supply from HQ is far too few, even with paying for fuel with political points.
I'am not sûre what i will do in 2 days, probably trying to rationning the flanks. Maybe i will find tons of spare fuel in Bastogne.
Maybe my supply consumption will slow down, as i have less tanks. Panzer lehr started with 50 Panther for example and now only have 30 !! Good news !
Unfortunately the HQ want to give me new panzer division such as the 9th SS. I do not need it. Everyone want my fuel !!! Let the 9th SS be sent to be refueled in the east front !!
Only 100km to rush. I think i have done the hardest part and although there is still 14 jours for the campaign, it will succeeded. The war.... Will ... go on
