Re: Doug plays CC50@100%

Scen 33 England: Midlands BV pre battle I upgraded a fighter and an Arty Modern, experienced, entrenched enemies made this battle a slog and a blood bath. The Brandons flew safely across the river and easily took one of the city VHs, followed by the mortar and the aux Paras. They fought a tough bat...

Scen 3 Invasion England BV Pre battle I upgraded to big Artys to MASSIVE Artys >: I concentrated first on reducing the Royal Navy and wiping the RAF before I landed in the south near the airport.

Re: Doug plays CC50@100%

Scen 30 Avranches BV Pre battle I bought 2 new SPADs I think the key to my win here was that I accidentally deployed my best armour in the center-east deploy zone so I was able to easily deal with the large formation over the river and the reinforcements that came later. The center of the map was a...

Scen 25 Viipuri 1943 BV Pre battle I saved my cash for future upgrades, hopefully JagdPanthers. Pretty straight forward battle with more resistance from the terrain than the enemy at times.
