Re: Merkava invincible?

Another thing to remember about suppressing non-entrenched infantry ... machineguns and mortars are your friends!

It can also be worthwhile to sometimes use cheap APCs as bait for enemy armor,...

Re: Merkava invincible?

I spoke to the crew of a LAV-25 after the Kafji battle during Gulf I who'd been off to the west near the border where the second (and largely unreported) incursion by Iraqi forces occurred. They...

Re: Merkava invincible?

Reminds me of the time I had a swarm of PzKw II's surrounding a KV-1. I doubt they actually penetrated it but I'm sure the crews ears were bleeding from all the concussions.

Re: Merkava invincible?

Try a Gulf I battle, M1A1(HA) with US crews vs T-72's with Iraqi's.
For all intents it was a turkey shoot.

Re: Hammer and Anvil

This is one of the reasons I tend to make many of my scenarios centered around a USMC Battalion MEU. It's essentially a small combined arms brigade, a "bit" light on armor and artillery because the...

Re: Scenario play and preferences

As you can probably tell by the scenarios I create I generally prefer large scenarios. I generally have three games going at once I swap back and forth between depending on time/mood.

Re: Helicopter inaccuracies

Sorry it's taken so long to respond.

I suspect there's some confusion between the "Cobra" and "Huey" here. As far as I know no Huey ever had a chin turret, but the initial AH-1G did sport a chin...

Re: An idea for 'body armor'

That's what I do.
I generally set it to 150% when playing nations that generally use body armor vs nations that don't.

But if both nations use, or don't use, body armor I just leave it at 100%.

Re: Are negative VP costs possible?

I'd appreciate that.
Makes it difficult to do some scenarios, US in Vietnam for instance, or a Soviet style assault.

Re: Trench warfare 100 years later

As much as every combat situation is similar to every other one it's also unique.

There are always situational variables the good commanders (be they officers leading a division or sergeants...

Re: Are negative VP costs possible?

I have a scenario where I used reverse Polish logic because I wanted civilian casualties to count against the player.

What I did was use the editor to make all the enemy combat units zero...

Re: Trench warfare 100 years later

Not quite so easy IRL.

Someone on the ambushing side may have get trigger happy, have poor camouflage, or any number of other things that give away the situation. The side being ambushed may have...

Re: Fiery Cross Island

Nope.
And not planning any unless something serious comes up.

Admittedly it's a pretty easy scenario ... IF you have a grasp on amphibious landings, overwatch, and not causing blue-on-blue with...

Re: Spike LR 2

Well ... here we have an article discussing real world use of the Spike ATGM ... as always it's less impressive then manufacturer claims.
