A unit either has a radio or it doesn't

The radio is either working each turn, or it is not.

If the radio is not working at the beginning of the turn, what is the point of 'radio contact'? ...

Re: Question about radios

I'm on turn 9. A0 hasn't moved. B0 hasn't moved. C0 hasn't moved. However, B1 and B2 have moved and Sx also. The distances cited are where the units presently are.

Found this in the v5 Game...

Re: Question about radios

- emphasis mine

Really!

A0 is in voice contact with B0? They're 200 hexes apart!

C0 is in voice contact with B0? They're 12 hexes apart!

S0 is in voice contact w/C0 from 20 hexes away?

Re: Question about radios

I'd guess that they'd be in radio contact w/B0 (out of verbal range or they'd have a white R).

However, given that C0 HQ A Co 1 Bn/7 has a white R and is 12 hexes from B0, and given that S0 Recce...

Re: 1st Cav Div. campaign problem...

I looked into this and apparently its totally historically accurate; at squad level, units were issued AN/PRC-6; at platoon level the AN/PRC-25.

Re: question about formation leadership

That makes sense. A flock of UH-1D A/229 AHB show up turn 25 with a 2nd Lt as P leader, but Capt as x0 leader. And 1,2 & 3 PLT 2nd Bn, 5th Cavalry appear as reinforcements on turn 49. I believe...

question about formation leadership

I've got several USA airmobile (1965) formations where the indicated formatation P leader in the HQ menu is not the x0 unit of the formation. The P leader is something like x5 and always seems to be...

Re: question about spotters

So a mortar can be spotted by one FO 1, or formation leader 1, and a 122mm can be spotted by FO 2, or formation leader 2.

The trick is not to select the mortar when FO 2 (or formation leader 2) is...

Question about radios

I have two questions:

What is the difference between ' R ' or ' * ' in the HQ list of units?

I'm unclear what the difference is between "C&C link to their immediate superior" and mere "radio...

Re: 1st Cav Div. campaign problem...

So is this campaign compatible with v5.0? Or will some version of the OOB be required?

One curious issue seems to be that ALL of the units have radios. Would that be normal?
