British Forces (Brits)

Base development of British forces (Brits) - consistent improvements in the Field Headquarters and Specialization choice

The British forces base is a complex of three buildings: the Field Headquarters - the main building, the Platoon Command Post (2nd building - can be activated in the Field Headquarters) and the Company Command Post (3rd building - can be activated in the Field Headquarters, but after activating the Platoon Command Post). After activating buildings, you can build units in them and make improvements (the British do not have a unit that builds basic buildings).

In the Company Command Post, one of two Specializations can be improved, which make it possible to build one type of heavy tank, as well as additional skills and abilities for other units (see Specializations details at Company Command Post).

Also at the British base there are buildings Weapon racks that can be activated in the Field Headquarters, after which it will be possible to approach with your squads and buy up to two weapons per squad.

Specification

  1. Defense (perfect) Royal engineers can land mines build mortar emplacementsflak emplacements Boforspowerful anti-tank guns and forward assemblies that can reinforce squads and have weapon racks. Infantry section can build trenches on captured territory.
  2. Medicine (perfect) Medics can heal squads nearby. Infantry section can be upgraded for healing themselves and nearby squads when out of combat. Royal engineers can be forward assembly that can be promoted for healing squads nearby. Tactical support regiment commander allows to drop medical supply on the targeted friendly territory.
  3. Reconnaissance (good) Infantry Section with Pyrotechnics Supplies has increased sight range. Assault Officer can call a recon plane after 1st veterancy. 2cm Flak 38 Emplacement allows to launch Flare after 1st veterancy. Many commanders allow use recon: Designate Command Vehicle ability that can be attached to any vehicle except Universal carrier and allows to call in a recon plane to patrol above the vehicle for a period of time. Observation Post allows to call in a recon plane in some radius around the building. Early Warning reveals enemy frontline territories over a period of time. Some commander abilities give a recon of targeted area along with main task: Vanguard Operation Crocodile, Assault Operation, Field Recovery Operation, Mortar Cover, Air Supremacy Operation.
  4. Infantry (good) Infantry section is a strong long range squad, that become more stronger when in cover. Able to win a battle against machine gun when in green cover. One disadvantage is the lack of an anti-tank grenade. Only royal engineers have it. Assault Officer is one of the strongest units of short range, can shoot panzergrenadiers and sturmpionnersCommandos are the strongest anti-personnel squad, able to move in disguise and install demolition charge. British infantry dominates in the middle of the game thanks to Bren machine guns from the weapon rack.
  5. Anti-tank infantry (bad) Infantry section does not have an anti-tank grenade, due to which it is very vulnerable against any vehicle and is unable to support anti-tank weapons from a breakthrough. By the middle of the game, it is possible to arm the squads with PIAT grenade launchers, which inexperienced units miss even at stationary vehicles. Therefore, it is important that the Royal engineers be present next to anti-tank guns that can throw an anti-tank grenade. Special Weapons Regiment allows to call-in Tank Hunter Infantry Section with anti-tank grenade and two anti-tank rifles.
  6. Anti-tank gun (good) Exclusively to defeat vehicles. After 1st veterancy has the ability to quickly move and turn around. Shot with rocket after 3rd veterancy.
  7. Mortars (perfect) Basically available as emplacements; mortar squad is available from two commanders: as call-in unit and as drop supply.
  8. Sniper (good) Additionally capable of hitting light vehicles; in efficiency worse than the German and Soviet snipers due to the low rate of fire. Due to its high radius, the view effectively opens targets for the Sherman-Firefly.
  9. Machine guns (good) Can be built at the beginning of the game, effectively suppressing infantry in a wide arc. No extra abilities.
  10. Light vehicle and armored cars (good) Universal carrier can be built at the beginning of the game, require precise control and should keep a distance in the combat. In capable hands, can annihilate enemy infantry and machine guns. Can be promoted with Vickkers light machine gun (against infantry in the field), or Flamethrower (against infantry and machine guns in the cover or buildings).
  11. Light tank (perfect) AEC armored car according to its characteristics is suitable for a light tank, as it is effective against infantry and vehicles; will win against any German light tank. Also is able to support the fight against medium and heavy tanks thanks to special shot that slow down target vehicles. Precise control is required. Royal Artillery Regiment commander allows to call out Valentine light tank with a powerful gun, that is effective against infantry and vehicles; can wins against SPG in flank attack; after 1st vet can work as gun-layer for all available Sextons (do extra attack in target area no matter of reload state).
  12. Medium tanks (good) Cromwell - a versatile mobile tank, weaker than the German Pz 4 (often unable to penetrate armor in the forehead), but faster and more effective against infantry; Anti-aircraft tank Centaur - somewhat similar to the Germans' Ostwind, but more effectively suppresses infantry, although it does less damage; also knocks down planes, but is unable to fight against a medium tanks.
  13. Heavy tanks (good) Depending on the chosen tactics, you can go to Comet Tank (fast and hard hitting vehicles, weaker at infantry) or Churchill (slow, heavily armored, stronger against infantry and breaking through the front). Churchill-Crocodile - Churchill with an additional flamethrower against infantry are available for some commanders; Engineering Churchill AVRE - effective against infantry blobs, crews and fortifications.
  14. Anti-tank SPG (perfect) Sherman-Firefly is a long-range anti-tank SPG. Ideal for use in open areas and firing at enemy tanks from a distance; can be easily destroyed by panzershrecks. In positional combat, it is better to use in conjunction with infantry Section with Pyrotechnics Supplies or sniper, which has increased sight range. After upgrades, it has a large view and is capable of launching 2 rockets, which do little damage and stun the crew, but often miss and are expensive. Choose clumsy targets that don't move or are repairable.
  15. Multiple launch rocket system (bad) - Not available as a standard unit; in one doctrine it is possible to call the Land Mattress Multiple Rocket Launcher, which randomly hits a large area. Clumsy, can be easily destroyed and captured.
  16. Long Range Artillery (so-so) The Sexton Self-Propelled Artillery is only available for Royal Artillery Regiment commander. The Infantry Section with Pyrotechnics Supplies, sniper and the Forward Assembly are capable of calling in one or two howitzers (depending on the development of the Field Headquarters). For Advanced Emplacement Regiment commander, you can order While the ability is active, nothing can be built in the corresponding building. To use both howitzers, you need to separately activate the ability in the Platoon Command Post and the Company Command Post.
