HoI3 AI ExperimentAAR
- Jun 21, 2014
Seeing you seem to have some experience with this. How did you organise this? what setting did you put the AI too? What level of HQ did you use? Did you create a separate Theatre for Anti-Partisan operations in order to make sure the Anti-Partisan troops remain within a certain territory?
For the best coverage, FIRST, you want to put Garrisons (with artillery and/or Military Police) in any VP province you REALLY want protected. That way if a Revolt pops up it is unlike to pop up there. And with the Military Police added the Revolts may not even pop up NEAR the Garrisons as MP have a certain amount of coverage. Also put them where your supplies flow through (which is a good idea when advancing into enemy territory) as MP units and Garrisons can do a good job at defending supply lines from Revolts.
Then, SECOND, assign a Army HQ (with AI on) with a few cavalry units and, if available, some TAC Wings. Don't give it control of the Garrisons because it will try to move them around but DO tag those VP provinces so it knows to protect them. It may move the units around a LOT if it feels it is under-powered so you may need to experiment.
By doing the first you protect anything you feel is too important to be left unguarded. And the second allows you to have a reactionary force that can deal with Revolts or just contain them for a moment while you decide what to do. German players have been known to let AI's defend all of France while focusing on the USSR.
