Superior to Panzer General in all ways.

It felt like the infantry were more balanced in Allied General. In Panzer it was all about the tanks and tac bombers. I can't play this anymore though.. There's something wrong with my disk. It's scratch-free but it hangs partway through the Middle East campaign and won't ever load anything after. Costs too much on eBay these days, too.

Forgot to mention, this also runs smoother and it doesn't bug up in the naval battles. Things seem to load faster and the color setup is easier on the eyes.

I was having a lot of trouble with the El Agheila scenario. I was always trying to crush the enemy army and move mine southwest. You don't get enough turns to do this, though. I found a major victory was very easy to obtain here by digging in around the northeast objectives you start with, taking out the enemy bombers then sending two tanks and 1 infantry all the way south and west to hit the two objectives from behind. The tanks provided escort so the enemy couldn't hit the infantry while it was in a half-track. The infantry took the towns after they were run over with a level bomber. Nice and easy.

This defense mode idea also worked in Mersa El Brega with the western objective you can deploy your army around. I dropped two upgraded tanks in there (GB Grants) with my artillery behind them, put in an Air Defense unit and the enemy kept going north to take the town rather than northeast to pin my main force down up there. They were able to march down and hit the enemy from two sides. The tanks obliterated anything that came in range and my infantry hit the artillery they would set up to take them with!
