mechanised infantry and tank divisions should be able to move without/with less hindrance

4 posts in this topic

As above - tank and motorised/mechanised infantry should be able to move faster and further away (if not without any links) from their respective HQs to balance the game for the purposes of realism with the brigade setup to allow for spearhead offensives. Maybe a good idea or not?

I'll do you one better- I proposed that brigade speed should be a function of many trucks a brigade had vs. unit value and supply you needed to move.  More ratio of trucks, faster the brigade could be moved, but less firepower.  The idea was to extend the RDP function of HCs, or possibly have people sign onto 'their division' and vote/design how fast vs. heavy hitting their division would be.

Historically the Axis division truck park stayed the same during most of the war.  With light tanks and less fuel needed, the Panzer divisions could move fast.  As the panzers got heavier, they burned more fuel and the ammo was heavier.

The US loaded up with trucks and was thus much more 'blitzkrieg' in the latter part of the war.  In addition to a big rich truck park, US forces would fix captured Axis vehicles and roll in those, cause no one in the US likes to walk.  Used up an incredible amount of gas but moved fast and light.

It would be cool to allow HC to customise the number of units of a bridge therein.

Yes it would.

 

And no it wouldn't.
