Re: Spacing of SAMs

I found this link which talks about the Syrian air defence (or lack thereof) and there are also links to much more stuff, such as evaluation of air to ground guided missiles, smart bombs, etc.

Re: Spacing of SAMs

Thanks, but not really giving much detail about actual dispersion. I will keep looking for something, as the SAMs are controlled by a central control unit I don't think they can just be deployed all...

Spacing of SAMs

I have been trying to find out how far apart missile systems, such as the SA6 or Patriot, are deployed in the field. I have been able to find numerous sites discussing how far out they can engage...

Re: Question on infantry SAMs

Weasel, in the Editor, as you may know, the EW of the Blowpipe is adjustable. So you could set it equal or greater to the EW of the opposing aircraft in your scenario. Or, reduce the EW of the...

Re: Question on infantry SAMs

You are correct, did another test, EW1 vs EW1 and the BP fired often. I also noted that against very fast jets they have a much reduced chance of firing too, makes sense. I will see if I can find...

Re: Question on infantry SAMs

Redid the test and used spotter planes and light helos instead, the BP fired at maximum range using all their shots in the turn, so it must be the EW stopping them from shooting.

Were you around in the 80s? I believe they say at one point we were 5 seconds from nuclear war.

Artillery dispersal when shooting

Re: Will there be a 2018 update?

You can Z fire into unseen hexes, at the Blitz we call it GOD MODE firing, where the AI has shown an enemy unit but you don't have anyone who can see it. You can, sometimes, fire into that hex. ...

That is right, EVERYONE carried MG or Mortar ammo, not just the crew, who only carries the ready rounds. The USMC isn't unique in everyone carrying ammo, believe it or not we do in Canada too. BTW...

Re: Error in Abn mtr unit?

I humped the 50cal, never a mortar. You are right, two on the MG, 1 on the tripod (that is all we used) and 1 carry ammo (2 cans). The ammo is too heavy to carry along with the MG or tripod.
