Well, I first read that information last week, when I was researching for the above update.Loved the extra detail there in the origins of AF1: I’d never heard that before, that I can recall.
Interesting, and not that surprising. I guess you can still differentiate thanks to tone, between the scenic route and the 'scenic' route.For Australians “taking the scenic route” is what you say when you humorously acknowledge (without really admitting it) that you got lost!
I couldn't resist.Very much like that kind of image altering for alt-hist authenticity. It’s the little things that count.
Kings have no place in our Communist utopia.then up against the wall!
No commentMy guess is it’s more likely to be romantic rather than enemy action!
1. A Rocket Test Site it is then. I wasn't 100% sold, but seeing your enthusiasm, I don't see why not.1. Rockets? He’ll yeah!
2. Care a fair bit about the officer ratio, but not necessarily to 140%.
3. War in the Balkans. It’s the main game.
4. I reckon no more than a small corps as first wave troops (3-4 divs), the rest can be conventional once the coast is clear.
5. I like TAC for the truly heavy effect on soft targets. CAS can always be added if it’s a hard target.
2. Well, it's a little over 93% right now, so 140% seems quite some years away as it is, even if we don't start training additional ground units.
3. I was leaning that way as well, even if an offensive in Norway would require fewer troops, war in the Balkans would have a larger impact.
4. 3-4 Divisions seems reasonable.
5. Our Tac research is 3 years behind that of other major powers, whilst our CAS are state of the art. That, a lack of leadership to do much more than keep up with research for existing units, and the large number of hard targets the Wehrmacht keeps providing, all push us in the direction of CAS. In the long term, we could really benefit from up to date Tac. Ideally, we would get licenses to build more advanced Tac's, tough securing such licenses may prove very difficult, if not impossible. Then again, to make researching Tac technologies cheaper, building up Tac Practical would help a lot. The chicken and the egg really...
I'm just going to take a swig from a hip-flask in response to this.Catching up and I probably should be more bothered about Odinstat. But I am not, because this is clearly far more important;
I would argue the incompetence of STAVKA is just as much to blame for these events, as Turanec's actions. A 5th class medal seems perfectly suited to Turanec.I am proud of my boys for this one. They can look forward to the War Victory Cross (5th Class) at least for this incredible feat of arms.
Yes, they are also on some evolution of the King Tiger, and regular Panzer-divisions are equipped with Panthers. According to Paradox, the StG-44 is equivalent to the SVT-40 as an Infantry weapon, and both are 1942 technology... The more I look into the details, the more strange things I find...Jagdtigers in 1942? That is quite concerning, we can only hope German production is as relentlessly terrible as it always was with advanced weapon systems.
I should probably point out, if it wasn't obvious, that the way Lend-Lease works in HOI3 TFH, the Soviet Union won't actually be getting US-built units, but just a dollop of extra IC it can do with what it pleases. For the sake of the story, and of variety, I'm thus going to pretend some new units are fitted with US-built weapons, vehicles, or aeroplanes. This will have no impact on their in-game performance when compared to identical non-LL units, though it may have some effects in the narrative. (I'm not sure what those would be yet, though I have a couple of ideas.)
