Re: Heavy Transporter

An ARV would make more sense then the current tank transporter.

Re: Heavy Transporter

Oh, those.

I plan to use a couple in my ever-so-slowly-evolving USMC in Iraq campaign (one will be transporting a PBR of all things). But other then a "flavor" situation I've never seen any...

Re: thermal imaging...

My China vs Russia scenario isn't that extreme but it's a fairly narrow map with a lot of units coming in waves on the Chinese side.

Re: Spacing of SAMs

As with most things military it depends on the number available and the tactical situation.

If you only have a few systems you may be forced to place them in non mutually supporting locations in...

Re: Heavy Transporter

I use them all the time to move artillery, occasionally light vehicles, and in scenarios sometimes an ammo dump (with a bit of editor magic ... change the carry weight to what the helo can manage,...

Re: thermal imaging...

I'm guessing ... GUESSING ... you don't play infantry heavy battles. Sometimes I get a generated battle short enough you don't even have time to move infantry from the starting zone to the battle. ...

Re: Helicopter inaccuracies

While I certainly understand the "need" to have helo's auto withdraw (as you said many players wouldn't retire them) it does bother me that they do so after taking a single point of damage.

Would...

Re: thermal imaging...

Usually 3 more turns would be enough to allow some recon/flanking.

Obviously you don't want battles too long, but a little extra time will give the player time to do something besides a frontal...

Re: thermal imaging...

As pointed out by others combined arms is the key to WinSPMBT. I don't play vs a "Tank Heavy" AI thus tend to face more man portable ATGMs and MPADs then most folks. I rarely see the AI use less...

Re: Implementing A Reverse Slop Defense

Gun depression/elevation aren't modeled in WinSPMBT unless there's some hard coded factor we don't actually see in the game. Don would have to answer that tho.

Re: Question on infantry SAMs

Might want to look at the Experience and Morale ratings as they're the primary determining factor when it comes to opportunity fire (which is what all AA fire is).

Re: 2018 SPMBT Upgrade Patch

As do I ... and I do a LOT of searching (not near as much as Don tho).

And I find the general search VERY useful at times ... I can say find every "jeep" in an OOB so I can cross-reference them to...

Re: APC Development and related topics.

Since two-man sniper teams (shooter & spotter) are standard since snipers were officially reintroduced I guess we'll just have to be creative!

Re: Tall buildings

I hadn't thought of this ... think I'll "borrow" the idea for a couple of the scenarios I have in mind.

Re: Re-Crew Abandoned Vehicles and Weapons

Good idea, think I'll do this with that "Vital Airfield" scenario. I KNOW it has an awfully long "pre-game show".

Re: Re-Crew Abandoned Vehicles and Weapons

As I think I mentioned before one scenario in my ever-so-slowly-being-made campaign involves a ****-hits-the-fan scramble from the barracks with crews to man vehicles.

Re: B Coy 11th MEU Campaign Fitting on to transports.

For some reason the carry capacity if the LCACs in this campaign have been set to x40 vice the x50 they are suppose to be (in the OOB). Ans due to this change you are correct the units will not fit...

Re: Timed Objectives

Games with Timed Objectives need some careful thought concerning the defending forces.

If the amount of, and cost of, defensive forces is too high it becomes impossible for the attacker to ever...

Re: 2018 SPMBT Upgrade Patch

Never seen paratroops used by the AI but it does use attack and transport helos on rare occasions (usually river crossings).

Re: Battle Group HQ - Unit A0 Sub-formations

One thing you can do however ...

Change a Platoon Formation to a "Company" in the editor, attach whatever units you need to, change it back to a "Platoon".
