TC = turn conditional. These chits are added to the support pool when a condition is met. See the Reinforcements schedule card for turn 18-24.

The 3 Red Vengeance supports represent looting, rape and murder sprees by soviets in German cities. They go in the support pool after the 1st German city falls.

Himmler was appointed commander Army Group Vistula and made a pig's ear of it. He goes in the pool once Dresden, Berlin, Breslau, Konigsberg or Vienna fall.

I am having a hard time understanding how to use them; which city do they go on? Who chooses? Is it the first 3 cities? The use is very explicit yet is difficult to grasp.

Thanks

Let's say Augustow is the 1st German city to fall in the Soviet's movement phase on turn 4. 3 red vengeance supports go into the German support pool immediately. The Germans don't draw any that turn but 1 comes up on turn 5. On turn 6 the 3rd Guard Mech corps advances after exploitation combat into Allenstein and the German player puts the support on that city.

Not counting the rape and mayhem it represents...this marker is worse for the Soviets than the Germans.

And the Warsaw uprising...why in the world would the Soviet player attack it if the end result is eternal torment by the Stalin support unit?

Drunkeness, murder, rape and looting occupied some units for days. Officers stood by and often took part. Talk of revenge and spoils of war had been openly encouraged since Stalingrad. News somehow leaked back and stiffened the defence. Nyiregyhaza was retaken temporarily and the sorry fate of its inhabitants made the Hungarians more resolute. Eventually the high command had to put a stop to it.

Stalin wants the Germans to snuff out the uprising as they would be independent of him. If Zhukov or Konev took it upon themselves to save the nationalist Poles they'd be watched and countermanded ever after or just sacked. The rules allow you to liberate Warsaw as soon as you can but at a price. In game I prefer to bypass it and knowing the Germans will do my dirty work.
