Allies Victorious: D-Day - How to blow the Railway Bridge

Post by russkly »

Hi,

Just into this following recent release and am struggling to fulfil the secondary objective of blowing the railway bridge near Carentan by Turn 6.

It earns the US 400 RP, so it is worth it, but I can't work out how to achieve it by Turn 6.

Land forces can't seem to get there quickly enough even by sending Rangers as far down the river as possible, and the para units from Blighty can't reach the bridge in time either. Unlike the Brits, the US start with no airborne forces in the air.

Anyone managed to do this? If so, please share how you managed it.

Load a U.S. airborne unit via the island airfield at the top of the map, fly them over and drop on/next to the bridge.

Thanks, Pulig.

I actually got an answer on the more-populated Steam discussion group, which worked very well: once you load the airborne unit(s) onto the C-47s at the airfield in the top right of the map, two deployment hexes will appear near to the Carentan bridge, so you don't actually need to fly them all the way cross the map.
