After months, months and more months of playing a game once in a while i finally completed the SDK Die Kampfgruppen Grand Campaign on the german side.
My battlegroups nearly completely depleted, down to my last 2 tanks i managed a total victory 2 days before the campaign's end date.

Did anybody else find the time/stamina/perseverance to finish the grand campaign?

Never did finish the campaign and definitely wasn't on pace for a kill ratio like you got there. Way to go!!!

Oh my God...I have never ever seen numbers like the Russian casualties you posted there...

I was going to play SDK next, but suddenly I have my doubts...  Confused

No, it is fun  Cool .

If you want a shorter campaign just play Der Kessel mod. Only about 12 battles per round.

Der Kampftruppen is the shorter mod, der kessel is longer.

I think i played vet vs vet settings.

Well done! The only GC I have ever finished was CC4 Vet BoB and I scraped a close victory in the last turn.

Der Kessel is a perfect size for me with just the battles around Pitomnik and Gumrak airports.
Adds up to about 11 battles per round.

I thought Der Kampftruppen is a bit bigger... with several more areas of battle beyond the airports and Kalach.

Maybe you mean the Der Kessel Campaign... I am speaking of the Historical Kessel Campaign from November 24. Sorry if I misunderstood.

Hi Aetius

Congratulations on a well deserved victory. Playing to the full extend of a campaign is rare, even in single player. My respect.

The combined casualties in your campaign are massive. Some bloody fightings there.


Few questions:

- what kind of Russian weapon caused most casualties on your side, and vice versa?

- were the casualties on your side, higher in the start of the campaign, or did your battle groups deplete more regularly over time?  

- have you ever considered to play a full h2h campaign? I'm looking for a dedicated opponent, wanting to play the Germans.

It seems ages ago since i've finished this GC.

Soviet tanks where the most deadly, especially when one of my teams was spotted and several tanks opened fire simultaniously.
My HMG's claimed most soviet infantry casualties and my infantry claimed most soviet tanks (AT guns don't last long in this GC).

My BG's tended to deplete more towards the end of the GC when the best teams where already gone and more "sacrifices" where needed.

I rarely played H2H, i'm one of those guys who plays a quick game once in a while when i find time for it and i feel like it (to finish this GC took a long time).
I haven't played CC in months now, i'll probably start playing again when one of the upcoming mods comes out.

My guess was the Russian artillery would be the prime killer-weapon, however, I have only played a GC in SDK, not Die Kampgruppen. Going to try it out at some point. Coming from your campaign debrief, it seems to be an intense game.

Sad you don't play H2H GCs as the AI ones, still, impressive campaign debrief.

Thanks for sharing.
