Re: AP vs Bunker/Pillboxes

Thanks for the explications folks. They've convinced me to drop any objections to combat results with bunkers. Carry on and have a great day. Cheers!

Re: AP vs Bunker/Pillboxes

There's no opening at the side or rear. How can AP rounds with max pen of 7 get through 20cm of steel at 4 or 500 meters with one or two shots each? Infantry was not a factor.

Re: AP vs Bunker/Pillboxes

Sorry to be a pain about this but in a just-completed battle as Brits vs Italians in late 1940 a couple Matilda IIs with max PEN of 7, no APCR, took out bunkers from the side and rear with armor...

Re: Daunted by Long Campaign force selection

OK so in a British LC (40 battles starting April 1940) two 60-pounder troops were bought as part of the core, hoping to upgrade one or both to longer-range off-map artillery for CB. Couldn't find a...

Re: AP Penetration Ratings

Yes. Just go to AP Calc, accessible through Game Options at startup under Utilities. There it shows you precise penetration values at various ranges for particular kinds of guns and ammo. You'll note...

Re: Skittish VH Scenario #470

Many thanks Don for your kind attention and precise explication. For something so relatively minor you've gone far beyond the call of duty. Very surprising to see what the real "culprit" was.

Exclamation Skittish VH Scenario #470

In Ts4EVER's Scenario #470, Bazooka Town, hex #31,12, a wood building, is a 100-point objective that's in German hands before the battle. Yet after first moving a tank into it, then an engineer...

Re: CIWS/VIRSS Vs ATGM/AGM

Just had an incident where an HJ-8 attacked a K-2. The message said that the EW defeated the missile, yet the missile struck home anyway and blew up the tank on a front hit (can't recall hull or...

Re: Merkava invincible?

You can say that again. And not "just" missiles but APCR from a 125mm Russian tank cannon (125mm Gun 05) with average PEN of 96 within 650 meters. It goes below the Merkava 4M's frontal threshold of...

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)....
