Upper-level command in OCS CB & GBII
Tuesday 23 February 2021, by
For many years now, I’m pretty sure the OCS series games need some mechanism to deal with upper-level command and control, above the existing HQs. And I’m not alone, as the new games, HR and TTW, come both with Front or German Armeen and Heeregruppen.
I have developed some rules to migrate these concepts to the previous titles from the OCS series and used them extensively on solo and face-to-face games.
Below, I would like to discuss the upper-level HQs for both sides at the beginning of the Case Blue campaign.
Based on many orders of battle found around the Web, they are three main questions to solve :
- At which German Armee are the Armeekorps attached? Same question for the Soviet Fronts and their Armies.
- At which German Heeresgruppe are the Armeen attached?
- How to deal with the changes during the game.
