The real World British Army kept 120mm RCL units in the Berlin garrison post introduction of MILAN.

Re: Possible bug maybe

So drive up to the obstacle...

Re: Possible bug maybe

Which is why we provide the preferences switches.

Everyone will have thier idea of "reality".

Re: Ferret Mk 5 - Size 0 Unit?

There is no way to make detatched-controller ATGM in the game.

Other than UK tabletop rules (like WRG and Challenger) - none of the other tabletop rulesets available back in the 70s and 80s, or US...

That was a feature introduced in v11.01 of 2017, to stop users inadvertantly getting thier vehicles immobilised. Also appears if you try to crash through a building.

Try zipping them into a single zipfile and sending as an attatchment then.

Also, try rar format instead of zip.

Re: PBEM Fail Problem

Something at his end seems to be causing the problem, and anti-virus is often the cause of problems. The .new file is also suspicious of some sort of problem there too.

Re: PBEM Fail Problem

The .new file is nothing to do with us.

Which files are you sending? - should only be the .cmt and .dat files for the slot. If you are sending the pbemregistry - error - toasted!.

Re: Some bugs

The unit cannot determine the target bearing at range 0, because the bearing code expects x0,y0 not to be the same as x1,y1 - some routines return different results if that is the case. So you can...

Re: VooDoo Children (4th CMBG at War)

There is code in there for the AI to lay down direct fire smoke as well, very rare to see it fire an X-fire smoke screen, but it does happen.

Re: VooDoo Children (4th CMBG at War)

AI tanks will occasionally fire smoke in reaction fire - this is not new behaviour. It is just rare that it happens.

I think I have seen it as reaction fire from my own tanks as well, though not...

Re: Autocannons, are they as good as they look on paper?
