Question: Destroying bridges

Destroying bridges

Occasionally I have had artillery fire or bombs destroy a bridge.

Is there a formula for how this is done?

is it based on warhead size, kill value, penetration or just a die roll?

Re: Unwanter helicopter support fire

I have seen infantry reaction fire against other infantry units when they were fired upon by an armored unit. Snipers do this often since they can't harm the armored unit.

Re: Unwanter helicopter support fire

Picture this:

Helicopter #1 is 5 hexes from 3 enemy infantry units
Helicopter #2 is also 5 hexes away.

Helicopter #1 moves to 4 hexes away and is targeted (units turn towards it) but is not...

Unwanted helicopter support fire

Frequently my helicopters will take it upon themselves to fire at ground units when I am trying to move another helicopter.

Often I am using one to draw fire so that another can make an attack run...

Re: WW3: Hammer & Anvil

I took it slow, having forgotten that I was being chased. As a result I lost most of the Arty units and some of the flak. They took out a number of the enemy soft units before they were destroyed. ...

Re: Persistant problem with airborne units

Stingers and Iglas are much better than Strelas.

Strela can't hit anything but stingers and Iglas often hit and do 1-2 points of damage to helos, just enough to make them go away.

Never mind. follow up forces arrived from the other direction. It all makes sense now.

The SU-25 Grach is indestructible. Anything smaller than an area SAM just scratches the paint.

Only issue so far is that the retreat directions are reversed. Ukrainians retreat right and Romanians retreat left so when they do they charge their...

Re: Virus infection in this forum?

My Norton software has been blocking coinhive.min and cryptonight-asmjs.min for about the last two weeks when I visit the SPMBT or SPWW2 forums.

I am using Mircosoft Edge as my browser.

Re: SaS TrooP non-series or limited series scenarios

Fun scenario.

It is a classic example of how the US hoped they could fight the war in Vietnam using overwhelming airpower, artillery, and mobility.

Sadly it did not work out that way most of...

Re: Ww2+40

The scenario was fun to play.

I would have the Brit units in the pass start unloaded since the AI did not unload them.

Looking forward to playing more of these.

Re: Original Steel Panthers converted scenarios

Fun scenario but I found some minor map errors.

46,27 should be a wooden bridge but it is a ford.




11,27 and 14, 27 should be a stone bridge but they are shallow water hexes.

Re: Original Steel Panthers converted scenarios

Thanks for these fun scenarios.

Noticed a few issues in the Singapore scenario. 3 Brit units are in the top left corner and were probably forgotten during deployment.

Also, several of the...

Encyclopedia question

Is there a way to get the encyclopedia to display in alphabetical order? Mine displays information in a somewhat random order in both SPWW2 and SPMBT.
