instead of opening a thread for every question, I start a short questions thread. Other beginners might find it helpful, too.
I watched 2 AARs of the Grand Campaign lately. In both, the player got a recon-plane on the first mission. I tried several times, but never got one. In the briefings, both players had an info about SE and experience cap, in my briefings there is no such info. I've also read, you get tanks in warsaw which you can keep. I took all hexes in that scenario, but only got an arty. NightPhoenix in his AAR seems to have Videos after each scenario, I don't... I wonder, if I need a patch or if I have the actual version of the GC-DLC?
1. In first scenario you got a Ju 87 Recon (Rudel) Spot+2. 2. First briefing: SE limit 2. Exp cap 225. You can reread briefing in-game: press Ctrl-M (Message). 3. Only 4 10.5 Art in Warsaw (only one Core), not tanks. You got Pz 38(t) with hero in Modlin (turn 2).

Well, I didn't get an JU87... There is one at the very beginning, but without hero. I never got a second (although I bought one).
And at the briefing, you can see: no such info (screenshot). I didn't get a tank at modlin, but didn't take all cities, maybe I missed the right one. But NightPhoenix also got GebirgsjĂ¤ger at Lodz - me not. So something goes wrong, I guess?
The recon Rudel unit should appear at the start of turn 2 at the far left edge of the map. There should also be a pop-up window that you can't miss. Many of the "special reinforcement" units arrive on turn 2. I won't say when in case you're trying to avoid spoilers.
1. The recon plane should appear at the beginning of your second turn in the Poznan scenario. 2. At the start of the DLC's, there should be a sentence at the end of the first briefing that articulates the SE and experience cap for that DLC. Your problem may have something to do with having a combination of German and English words in the briefing. It should be either all English or all German (or the other 2 languages you can choose). For example, the header says 'Nachrichten' instead of 'Messages' but the message is in English. Perhaps that file is corrupted? Do you have any of the other GC DLC's? If so, do you have the same problem with them? A patch may help or possibly reinstalling. Latest I'm aware of is Version 1.31. I'd try that and if it doesn't help, contact support. 3. There are no tanks to get in Warsaw. However, you can capture 4 artillery units but only 1 of them is a core unit which will advance to the next scenario if not destroyed. There are numerous other capturable units throughout the DLC's and many/most are listed somewhere in the forums, but they may be hard to find. Some can be found in the Capturable Units thread of the FAQ sticky section. 4. You can save a replay of your game at the final splash screen where it tells you that you got a 'Decisive Victory', etc. Instead of clicking 'Proceed' to go to the next scenario, click the button on the right which is 'Save Replay'. Save it with whatever name you want, then you will go back and can 'Proceed' to the next scenario. To see your replay, go to the 'Load Game' screen. At the top right there should be a tab that says 'Replays' that you click to see a list of your saved replays. You can then load one and view it using the control buttons below the 'next turn hourglass' in the upper right. Also, if you didn't save replays at the end of previous scenarios, you can still do so if you saved your game during the scenario. Load the save, finish the game, create the replay as above and you should have a replay of the entire scenario. Obviously, this is handiest if you have a save at, or near, the end of the game to use so as to not having to replay a lot of the game. Of course, if you only want the part up to the save, you can load the save, use a cheat code to end the scenario, then create the replay as above.
