Breakthrough division composition

From Hearts of Iron 3 Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Breakthrough divisions put the maximum possible force into the smallest possible space, using armored brigades and the Combined Arms bonus. They are not as fast as pure exploitation units, but faster than line units. Uses for breakthrough divisions include:

  • Smashing an opening in the enemy's lines.
  • Defending a critical objective.

  • Cheap and fast Mot-based division with Combined Arms.
  • Skip armour techs for better speed.
  • Superior Firepower tech available in 1940.

  • Takes advantage of combat width rules that allow divisions to pile in as long as current combat width is less than or equal to available frontage.
  • Arguably most powerful all-around single division.
  • Lay off Light Tank Armor tech after a while to prevent Softness dropping too low.
  • Superior Firepower available in 1940.

  • Engineer brigades greatly reduce penalties in bad terrain.
  • Some engine techs can skipped in later years since Engineers aren't fast enough to keep up anyway.
  • Can add a fifth brigade. Arm, Eng, Mot, SP Art, and SP R Art are good choices.
