@barnee Tutledove is a treasure trove for an Alien Invasion during Spring 1942 Axis & Allies Universe. Perhaps a Larry and Turtledove Kickstarter Game.
Or u can wait for another exciting WOTC Axis & Allies 🧟♀️ 1914 Zombie Game. Thanks, Pellulo
I know the topic is old, but I wondered how many troops a infantery unit consists of.
I always thought it would be just a division:
or maybe a corps?
Did the creator ever mention numbers?
Last I saw with most agreed was 75000
Somebody had a post for each piece. Can’t find. Thought CWO had a good one ?
@SS-GEN I can’t remember where I read it, but it’s my understanding that one infantry unit = 25,000 men.
Ok. I m probably wrong then.
I remember one convo about somebody wanted to put in some 150000 Spain volunteers on Germany’s setup to represent them. Talk was 2 Inf max.
I’m sure somebody will post some more numbers.
I would say nearer 100000 per Inf unit for moat games . Less in Global. Not sure 25000 would be right though; that is a very low figure.
Having said that, the islands in most games have one Inf in them. Very few of those would represent 100000 men. Terrain and the difficulty of attacking amphibiously, as well as the fact there is no smaller unit, means they are represented by one unit.
Larry has purposely never mentioned specifically how many of anything any unit represents, as the games are not intended to be simulations. The only sure thing is that they all represent more than one.
An army is of varying size since it can be made up of 3-5 corps. Each unit is an army. Tank is a corp or in soviet cases “Army”
I laugh at that you tuber that always says "infantry divisions"in his AA videos… correcting his speech nearly every time from whatever he intended to say.
Larry did name German armor units in Nova games edition…Panzerkorps under optional rules
I would say 10,000-30,000 when you consider how many you can make during a turn maybe less.
Thats 3-5 corps depending on nation and theater of war= army
It is porposely left ambigious to let players to answer it with their imaginations.
one army, 3-5 corps
