Re: WINSPMBT cited in "Best Modern War, Cold War & WW3 wargames" article by Wargamer

Heartfelt congratulations to Don and Andy for a well-deserved endorsement by one of the wargaming industry's primary authorities. Let's hope this recognition is at least some compensation for all the...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

Really. Just blew up an Abrams with a Kornet at 250 meters! Usually they're junk under 400 meters but this brave team managed to get another hit on another tank in the same hex but did no damage....

Re: VIRSS, SDs and Tank Smoke Rounds

OK, apparently nothing's changed. Didn't see any message at all on the second shots, but got the "VIRSS defeats Missile" on the first ones (have Message Delay at one-half so shouldn't miss anything)....

VIRSS, SDs and Tank Smoke Rounds

Sorry did forum search (nothing) then DuckDuck and Google. All I got on this was something from The Blitz back in 2007 and some quotes (from Don or Andy?) concerning how VIRSS works in the game....

Re: Apcalc

Which goes a long way to explaining why my precious T-90As with frontal armor against HEAT of well over 100 get damaged by Javelins with minumum PEN of 90. Didn't you say this game was unpredictable...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

No bug. Countless times I've bombarded certain hexes "blind" just ahead of forward infantry ("beaters). Most of the time, if my infantry haven't been too suppressed by their own barrage, they advance...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

Not interested in upping arty (also use it at 100% as with all other preferences) since IMO it's fine against infantry in the open or in regular terrain cover and buildings.

Since dug-in...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

Arty is fine against troops NOT dug-in IMHO so wouldn't want to upset the balance otherwise. The advice given by yourself and others is sound; the game cannot be all things to all people and there...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

Didn't mean to suggest that arty was a panacea which can drive out dug-in troops by itself. Just to relieve some frustration attending repeated mass barrages which have no effect at all save...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

While we're at it could we please allow arty below 155mm (down to, say 105mm) at least an outside chance of causing casualties to dug-in units? As it now stands it's pretty much pointless to have...

Re: Generated Campaigns, Jets and UAVs

Maybe it's 'cuz the points have been less than 8,000 for the first campaign and less than 7,000 for the second. Never recall seeing any air formations at all, let alone spotter planes on the support...

Generated Campaigns, Jets and UAVs

Re: Merkava 4M AAMG vs Infantry

Yes, the AAMG will fire with other weapons turned off or using the "w" key at all ranges. However they don't usually fire with other weapons turned on except at short ranges (mostly within 300 meters...

Re: Merkava 4M AAMG vs Infantry

OK thanks. Our family is in Cebu, the Central Visayas. We only got some strong gusts and relatively short periods of heavy rain as the typhoon's outflung spiral arms rotated over us. So we're OK....

Re: Merkava 4M AAMG vs Infantry

Yes, the Merkava MK 4M. They (AAMGs in slot #4) aren't firing at infantry. There've been countless opportunities to fire within the 60 degree frontal arc. Actually they haven't fired at all since...

Merkava 4M AAMG vs Infantry

In a current campaign in 2018 the Merkava 4Ms do not fire their AAMGs against infantry, even with their cannons turned off or down to 4 Heat rounds. Is this normal? Thanks.
