A basic guide for making Battle Groups in this case specifically Harder Attack Defence Fog of War Mod thing but same applies mod or not – to get the most out of the Ai its best to use deck building Incomes the map and settings as well i’ve found

under construction so a live type feed – old school style

 

the idea

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod - the idea

The Idea – what this guide is about

A guide to how at least ive found to structure AI BG’s for best performance and also create an Army Co-hesion with perhaps strengths or weaknesses a synergy and bit of a theme or story thru setting and decks

Using Income can also be a powerful Narrative – Vanguard vs Juggernaut for instance

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

– so meanwhile some Axis BG army Synergy that worked out well for them but not so ok for me

Act I – Para Partisan Hold out

Now to work out a scenario – Start with a theme i found useful and pictures even more

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

Defence that’s who we are – sorted but how to make interesting
Theme time

I like Commandos Paras and Partisan stuff so 2 of them can defend + 2 others as relief

Theme
– they have secured some zone ahead of lines had time to make basic defences , Trenches (MG nests, maybe some lite AT dug in) but they are recon strength only in A but with very good air their Armour AI relief arrives in B (fwd elements) and Main stuff in C

– vs 4 determined full Axis Divs with a bit of air wanting their turf back – they will be Recon, Inf + a bit of Armour strength in A maybe 1 Armour Jugger in there as the Mighty Fist for C Follow thru punch, an Infantry on Vangaurd for early manpower

V for Victory is a very interesting ai income as well for attack go dormant then C spring back

So already just by setting one side weakness ad strengths already have a kind of narrative
– Incomes can tell the story a bit – juggers vs vanguard and deck composition is key to match

Ill pick some battle groups but as usual its the idea no the actual exact groups that matter so i ll tell this alot by screen shot

to be continued…

– the Stage and Actors

4 Axis ive used before in a digital Kursk that can really dish it out and should release a Blitzkrieg of pain, attacking vs 3 Allies and a new guy to try out

Most definitely not historical names facing off and along side each other but the force order of battle is what this all about

Axis Attackers

Allies – Defenders (player)

The Map and settings – i set low start cash just enough fort the essentials as i know axis get 2x whatever i set so i want to minimise the swarm

With 0.5 every 2 minutes is lowest cash, 1.5 timer game could go hours

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

In Deployment phase i found let the Ai deploy then fill the line and if spare cash spread Recon AA and even armour across the line .AI calculates its forces allies and enemy for lots of plans (this is important i found)

Just made it and saved to post this and eat some toast i recon it will be long and a bit hard battle then ill describe the battle group logic and how it worked out

For instance – Allies are not guaranteed air superiority – that could be grim if loose that

Another instance on spreading out lesson – i didnt boost AA left flank…

– 34 seconds into A
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

but i did put a guy in the church so at least we can see them fly away, and say a prayer for the dead…. Air Look outs ‘help’ now

Only 99 minutes to hold back the might of the Wehrmacht might get an armoured car in B…..

the BattleTraining Exercise

About to dive in may either stick it on tele or post some shots from the front line

Plan is to stay alive provide some recon AA maybe a fighter or two and let the competent ones the AI allies do the hard work…..

Honneur, Patrie, Valeur, Discipline

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

From the Front and it aint Pretty
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

My end

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

Our Soviet Comrades copping it bad but holding out, just

The Skies are German, lost half my AA, the ‘Centre Town’ is crawling with INF and the SS are pushing far right as well (no pun intended)
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

Where my Bofor boys …were, now crawling with axis INf so my AT is bolting for it while i save up for a squad or two

Started low cash and dirt poor cant afford an officer corps and Commander and its almost B

Cant remember what income i set these guys but i hope it gets better than 60 every 2 minutes vs when Axis actually warm up in B

Yet we are optimiste – but i do wish i had something to lay my usual cowardly smoke screen to hide

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

Sitrep Just into B – Well its about now when the line starts looking like an Archipelago that the ministry of Information censor boys step in
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

So thinks this one was a ‘training exercise’
– cash strapped couldnt afford a supply truck for 19 minutes

The Relief columns just began but were Jugger Throttled in B
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

The Luftwaffe was doing a ‘fine job’ targeting my precious supply trucks soon as i built them

But was nice to see the Speztnas spent all their pocket money when their men were cut off other side of map for some off map fire works my area on the other side of map – those comrades love their off map i have found

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

Ura – till the end they held their Bubble tooled up and giving radio spotting

But now for the ‘actual battle’ – game settings become an important tactical decision before you even start the thing

– 2 options i see with these decks
increase start income but Enemy get better benefit in one off cash so will be stronger at start
or
Increase entire income – but means Enemy will also have more income and they have more toys


Round 2 i mean the real thing

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

– Battle preperations

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

– the reshuffle before the Battle

Have a decision not sure if its a plan – 750 start cash Germans will get 1500 (winces) and 075 income every 2 minutes – cash up

Get a bit of AA but go fighters reclaim the skies they was murder last game – get to test all the new flying stuff

Updates here or maybe on the tele

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

The new Income and settings
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

– 2 Army List changes
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod
A reshuffle needed some tip top manoeuvrable Fighters and some ninja AT INF for A – think i found some candidates, plus Vanguard for a heroic A and the poems and epitaphs later

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod
For ‘Historical authenticity’ or more fact two special forces next to each other were getting slammed the Spetnase lads get the day off and Baron Lovett’s Commando and his lighting fast Armour take the stage – they should be interesting least their planes are fast

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

The Partisan Bimp led stalling action led plan with those ’44Uber’ scout wheels booked as a fast out-of-there to prepared 2nd lines for the Hero

AA lines are set hidden and entrenched – in 2 minutes il afford a Spitfire and start on air force. No cash for officers yet need the whole package to be worthwhile, NCO’s only for now

The Field
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

A super high res, highly skilfully named map of the field in case dispatches start rolling in …..

Now what are their plans…
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

– front line reports

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod - - front line reports

The telex office for news from the front if it isn’t censored by the Ministry

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

SitRep Kick off +10 minutes

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

The Anti Inf specialist and Stugs with waves of Inf rolled into East and Down Town and the BAron was nowhere to be seen

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

But Commander Buczak holds the line like a trooper

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

And the Bimp thou a ‘little’ isolated lives surrounded by Enemy burning armour, unfortunately his Uber copped it

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod
The Red Devils are on the back foot on west flank only saved by the Polish brigade outstanding holding the line

The Centre received two columns in the face
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

Time to go V.C. in the great forest and halt that stuff , east town no idea what to do – air force might have to share the cash and drop some bombs

The Barons RAF boys did a fine job but they are getting thin, unleash the Fury Baron time to push them back across the Bendy River
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

Time for the Dowódca Buczak Defence – no idea how he’s still alive…
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

From the Axis side – they flow around obstacles like water, that’s a problem for the defender

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

Yep think his plan in the centre is going ok 10 minutes in and 89 minutes to a draw, not sure about that intel

Air Space = Contested

SitRep C Serious – Could be curtains in 14 minutes
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

And now the Juggernaut toys really rolling in
Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

Ober Furher Kabot wants to make me, kaput

Plenty of time for a Cup of tea and a siesta then they whipped….

Actually not so sure maybe some tummy troubles and the Ai can finish these guys and time for some Commando assault, where they shine – maybe…..

SitRep – Red Misted, hope Bimp got home to his Cafe

So if you cant beat them
Join them

A KT Div who need may need recon and AA baby sitting but may be useful and two Divs that should provide some interesting Defences and toys

4 Soviet Division’s i know have defeated these guys in previous tests

One of whom has a ‘reputation’ for map cleaning with off map

And I see quite a lot of stuff that dishes out a lot of pain cheaply and they just had a sale on

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

1st setup made for them trying a a real big map, bigger tends to make it harder defence – i shall be Luftwaffe i think i have a big job, the Skies we must keep – cue the ME’s and 88’s

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

And think i know where the Ai want me to go and if you look a good reason why often don’t give AI defending Commanders wheels

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

So the first training exercise is in, and the AI does like ti flank and infiltrate on big maps

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

I got the Red Finger – lucky just ‘Holo Deck Version’
Learnt – seems AA needs to be a bit more forward to compensate for higher Altitudes (in mod)

Where’s this Digital History will be writ….

Well a design thing i wonder where the AI defender map tactics are stored

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod

Not sure but think if those Attack were Defend beacons might be a better start

But after a few mishaps its a good map its worth it…

Steel Division 2 - Harder Attack Defense Fog of War Mod
