So I got fed up with using the AI system for battling the Soviets as Germany as it never could successfully encircle the simplest of opponents on the Soviet Front.
So I am planning about a total of 24 panzer division with 16 being 1xMedium Armor, 1xMotorized Inf, 1xMobile Art, 1xEngineer and then 8 being 1xMedium Amor, 1xMotorized Inf, 1xMobile Art, and 1xHQ so that I will attack with 3 panzer divisions per province and then leap frog by 3 panzer divisions attacking and then once they take the province then 3 more move and push the next.
I was thinking a total of 24 so there would be each 3 division per province to prevent counter attack and that way there would be a total of 8 provinces to take a time so I could get a large encirclement with 8 provinces in total.
Does anyone have any particular strategies with encirclements and should I go with less or more panzer divisions. For the rest of the infantry amry I suppose I will go with the standard 2 inf and two arty units and leave on AI control
