I actually won the main campaign and it only took me 376 hours (according to Steam).

Wow that was difficult. For those of you who have never played, a decisive victory in the West Coast of the U.S. is brutally hard. You have tons of territory and only 18 turns and the U.S. Air Force is huge, the Navy bombs the crap out of you when you get in range, Pershings and Firefly Shermans all over the place and Rangers in the cities. Some strength 15 in L.A. and S.F. Not to mention the most powerful and longest range AA and Arty in the game.

Add in about 10 fortresses and the Rockies funneling your troops right through the kill zone. And as icing on the cake a fairly large Armor + Ranger counter attack from Montana that you have to deal with.

I managed to take San Fran, Seattle, and Sacramento all about the same time with SF falling last on turn 16.

So yeah, just here to brag. Probably hardest campaign I've ever won in a wargame.


Is the US scenario in a mod or what DCL. Have never hit that challenge.

No its the original campaign. But in order to get there, there are a series of scenarios that have to be won in Decisive Victories.

Here is the complete list of Scenarios and the type of victory I got to get to the US:
(NOTE: the Marginal Victories are on purpose to give you more turns to store up prestige and experience)

Poland (D)
Norway (M)
Low Countries (D)
France (D)
Sea Lion 40 (D)
Barbarossa (M)
Kiev (M)
Moscow 41 (M)
Stalingrad (M)
Kursk (D)
Moscow 43 (D)
US East (M)
US Midwest (M)
US West (D) => This is the only way to actually 'win' the entire campaign. You must get a decisive victory here.

Here is a link to the complete chart, my path is not the only way to get there but at some point you're going to have to get a decisive Sea Lion and a decisive Moscow at the very least. Both of which are very hard.

Many thanks, AOM. I purchased a mega pak Panzer Corps Grand Campaign at least several years ago from Matrix. Steam has a Gold package that was released in the last year or so. Do you happen to know if the Gold release is new and improved, additional scenarios,???

I do not understand what the Gold release is exactly. Whatever I purchased it was from Steam and it has basically everything. Grand campaign, Afrika Corps, US campaign, Soviet campaign. Not sure if that's the Gold pack or not. They make it very confusing, IMO.
