Title: Game Tricks and Tips
Post by: Lethal on August 11, 2019, 08:55:49 AM
Share some of your TWT43 game tricks and tips!

ARRIVED
Units can be attacked while moving on the Campaign map, i.e., prior to the Tactical Deployment Phase.  Attacks occur if one of the following conditions are met:
•   Ambushed,
•   move more than 1 square on the campaign map and are engaged by the enemy,
•   during a March order were engaged by the enemy, or
•   move one square and that square was being attacked by the enemy.

Units are placed in the “arrived” state.  They deploy near their attacked location and face the nearest enemy key point. Infantry and armored vehicles are in columns, artillery and support units are deployed in line. This deployment cannot be changed by the player in the Tactical Deployment Phase.  Recon units are not blocked.

Very nice tutorial.  Is indirect fire available to non-artillery units such as HMG units?

Yes, any firing unit, other than hand held weapons, can use the technique - tanks, field guns, mortars.

Using these tutorials to learn the tech.  Not sure Oz internet is up to loading a full battle but that is the eventual aim.

Introduction to the campaign map, I  also have an "advanced" tutorial.

Having problems with your Stuarts tripping over rocks?

Use the movement "No formation" option.  Rather than trying to stay in formation the vehicles will find their own way through the obstacles.

An Infantry Company attack in the Faid Pass campaign.
Tank, M6 and off-map artillery support.
How I approach these battles.
