Where are Soviets getting all these PPs in Fortress Oslo?!
I'm finding FO to be an extremely frustrating experience, and wondering what I'm doing wrong, or how I can better anticipate the Soviet/WP capabilities.
My frustration is not at the tactical level, but the strategic/operational layer.
After several failed attempts at FO, I'm finally rolling in my current campaign. It's Day 6, I've taken Copenhagen, Oslo, and most of Sweden up near Stockholm. I've destroyed 3-4 SU/WP battlegroups, and kept my five BGs in very good shape (1st Infantry Brigade, 3rd Commando, 4th MAB, 82nd Airborne and 18.Panzerbrigade).
I've won major or total victories in almost every battle, some of them desperate fights against long odds (4th MAB fighting off three heavy BGs in a row when they unexpectedly all converged on the same territory).
Yet despite holding most of the Scandinavian territory (which should give me an advantage in Political Points, yes?), destroying multiple BGs without losing any of my own, AND winning nearly all of the battles, I now find myself facing 7 BGs with another appearing on the west coast for an amphibious landing in my rear. That's 8 BGs against my 5.
Worse, the Soviets are sliming me with repeated Chem Weapons attacks, hitting 18.Panzerbrigade two days in a row and rendering it totally ineffective.
My frustration is that I'm now outnumbered 7-8 to 5, with the Soviets having heavy groups like 510th Independent Tank and 131st Guards, while I'm struggling to advance using largely infantry-based brigades.
I can't understand why the Soviets have so many Political Points to spend on new BGs AND special attacks (bombings, Chem Weapons), when I own most of the territory and can't scrape together enough PPs for anything heavy like 194th Armored to counter the Soviet heavies.
It's just frustrating to feel like I'm both outnumbered and outgunned, yet I'm supposed to be attacking. That I'm winning my fights and yet falling further behind
Where are the Soviets getting all their PPs from? How many Chem Weapon strikes do they get before they run out?! I'm nearly out of Air Cover, and I'm worried about concentrating my forces because another Chem strike (they've already used two) would put my BGs in big trouble.
Argh. Will the Soviets ever run out of PPs or special attacks here? I think I can fight the 7-8 on the ground now, but if they get even more reinforcements or special attacks, I'm sunk.
