Armour Battles – German Forces

This post list a German armour battle group suitable for use with the Soviet forces, and against the British and US forces (to be posted soon).

Five years of war against the allies has reduced the German’s ability to keep its forces supplied. The German army has high quality equipment, but suffers from poor artillery supply. While capable of still fighting and winning, German battle groups often have to do so without effective artillery support.

National Abilities: The emphasis on training leaders to use their own initiative in combat gives the Germans a Command Dice Divider of 2.5.
