I think your concept lacks any anti building weapons for your infantry unless I missed something. By this I mean things like flammenwerfers, rifle grenades or incendiary grenades.

Do you mean anti Garrison? That is what the Hand Grenade with the fragmentation sleeve is for ;D as far as anti building, there is always the panzershreck and I kinda force the player to think tactically rather then blobbingly

Yes I do mean anti garrison although you do have some anti garrison abilities it's still kind of lacking in comparison to all the other factions.

perhaps but for all of the other factions anti garrison usually require an ammo purchase or something of the equivalent. there is always tactics involved in what decisions you make in these games.

dont forget about ranger blobs
I dint like these knd of tactics.
It sort of works against the Panzer elite, forces PE player to get Stg-44 spam.
But as I said I never use this **** tactic

Wanna know a good airborne blob killer? Vet3 Stormtrooper Stg44s....me and a Buddy tested this out, he got about 5 squads of airborne and 2 squads of Riflemen and I got 4 squads of Stg44 Vet3 Storm troops...  It was slaughter, you stun them then toss a bundle nade from another then let loose with the Stg44s and good god there is little +3s coming up all over the place O_o

Upped Pgrens with stgs rape 2 even with the strafes you just keep switching directions and sprinting and they always miss along with some incendiary nades to corral them. Any way why is the Wespe 900 mp?? just why??? everyone here has a obsession with it and it was a smaller caliber than the Hummel at 10.5cm instead of 15cm and they are only 650mp... There is actually a model for a panzerwerfer 42 in existence in case you did not know and also why is 2 pIIIs as expensive as 2 panthers? if you are going to do it that way make them special, not something you can normally like the a J1 to M version which had better guns, more armor and some schuzen skirts. So an PIII L (50mm more armor) that can take schuzen and mg42? Or an M that already has the schuzen and maybe even its wading gear represent increased speed in marsh, like the schwimwagen. Either way 1000 is to much to replace 40 fuel and 75 muni with 300mp when the PE gets panthers that actually defy the replacement logic with 1000mp that subtracts 200 odd mp AND 280 freaking fuel. Even with "only" 5 CPs to get there the allies could already be pulling tank rider 34s and churchills and both would be a close match to what you describe, a little less so for the 34 but it is cheaper and the churchill will have flank support by the time you get there for sure.

Churchills couldn't hit the broad side of the Empire State Building.... and all my P3's can be upgraded but you are right fixed to 800MP

Yes, I definately agree that the Ostheer should be able to build a Flak 88. However, the  Ostheer 88 should have some kind of a sandbag emplacement around it.(like the 17-pounder). It needs protection from snipers and fire.

You might also make it upgradeable to having a hardened concrete bunker. It would have limited feild of fire(it wouldnt be able to shoot 360 degrees) but it would have better protection. however you would have to be charged additional fuel to upgrade it to a concrete emplacement.

what if the Osheer had the ability to repair enemy tanks, and then use them against them. The germans often times would capture enemy tanks.
