I just picked this game up off Steam years after it's release. It was pretty decent until I reached this mission. It's completely ridiculous. I've read walk-thrus and pointers everywhere and they all say, you must do this and do that. Problem is, you can't generate resources fast enough to hold off the Germans at more than two points at a time. I destroyed the Panzer HQ, and they still keep coming.
Maddening thing about this game is just how dumb the crews are. With the exception of MG, all crew served weapons won't make a move to engage a target unless I intervene. Tank crews are even dumber. If I tell them to engage, they'll often turn the tank completely around in some wacky maneuver, then get demolished with a direct hit to their rear.
Trying to micro-manage the crew-served weapons while simultaneously moving to take strategic points without getting wiped out makes for some serious carpal-tunnel syndrome.
Anyone know of any cheats to get by this mission? I haven't found any.
