I bought the game one week ago. I read the forum a lot so I got a little idea on how to play. I started the first german campaign where you have to take the village with the church.
At first i seemed to understand how the game worked but the more I played i realised the less I understood. So i have a lot of questions sorry if some of them seem to be a little dumb.
1. I run out of reinforcent after one hard battle, so i can't repair weapons, replace dead soldiers, fuel up etc. Is there a way to regain such reinforcement like capturing enemy equipment? Do lightly wounded soldiers(yellow ones I think) regain full health after a while?
2. How is the night affecting the game? How far can soldiers see? I tried using the LOS tool but it confuses me more than it helps me. One time I have a tank one a free field and he can't see more then 30 m and onther time the same tank sees perfectly for 100 m but does not shoot the enemy.
Do flares help?
I just keep playing the nightmissions it just annoys the hell out of me.
3. How do you attack with tank other tanks? I tried the attack button but the only thing they do is drive forward to get killed in close distance.
4. How do you attack entrenched infantry? Artillery does not seem to work to supress them well.
5. Fighting tanks with infantry. I see that the have AT grenades and when i reach enemy infantry with tanks they get blown to hell. But when I try to attack with my own infantry they don't use the AT grenades. The just die.
I have a lot of problems fighting the tanks. One russian Tank Brigade just destroys me. I tried to attack with my 3 Tank companys but i keep on fucking it up. Even the stug3 seem to do no damage even though the guns should penetrate the t43 easily if I understand the penetration diagram correctly. or does it mean when the penetration line of the ammunition does not meat the armor line it does no damage(even though the munition penetrates way thicker armor like in the mainweapon of the stug3)?
5. When you have Panzergrenadiers with their sdkfz transports, do you attack without leaving the vehicle or outside of the vehicle?
6. Is there a way to postion artillery observers inside towers? I tried placing them inside the churchtower with defense and some guys even entered the churchtower but the LOS was drawn from the sdkfz vehicle.
