[DevBlog #01] 101st Airborne Division

Postby [EUG]MadMat » Wed 15 Mar 2017 19:00

After Wargame's "Unit of the Day", here comes SD44's "Division of the week".

Let's start with the most famous of them all, the Screaming Eagles from the American 101st Airborne Division.

I'm really interested if the SS divisions have any special morale bonuses.

Looks great, I see the MG3 Bias is back in full flow :mrgreen:. I'm definitely a fan of giving the lighter units attached support like the M10s that have a chance of bailing them out in the later phases once the real heavy hitters start turning up. That's the correct side of the realism/gameplay tradeoff to my mind.

There are at least two more Airborne units to come as well, the Red and Green Devils respectively. I wouldn't be surprised to see more than one airborne unit on the German side in some capacity or another. Personally the heavier units are more my speed but I'll be glad of decks to rush up the board and protect me while I build up :D .

Some of them were ridiculously indoctrinated. Would be interesting considering the improved morale system we have and that units can surrender.

I'm going to guess things like the 101st won't surrender as easy as regular troops? Bastogne anyone?

Most interesting part = being on the wrong side of the line affects your morale state.
