Re: Interesting read

Switching between Computer/ Human Control

Does anyone know how to switch between computer and human control during an ongoing game?
I asked because my dog somehow switched my units to computer control while while i was away from the...

Re: Jets & Planes but no UAV's here.

Many of our escort units in Afghanistan were US Army Reserve units activated for 6 months at a time. Some of these guys identified as Guard also, not sure if there is some sort of dual membership...

Re: Number of active players

I can confirm 1 in Kabul,the one other guy that I knew of took a job in Mali. It's funny that the NATO guys are more interested than the guys from the US. That's not from a scientific poll, just my...

Re: Scenario play and preferences

I play them quite often, then generally use them as a basis to tweak the OB and test different weapons.

Re: APC Development and related topics.

Perhaps the author was a fan of "The Rat Patrol" television series from the late 60s and still wonders why we don't replace tanks with jeeps carrying machine guns.

Re: APC Development and related topics.

I've seen reference to the Griffon reconnaissance vehicle but it appears to be larger than the CRAB. So far I'm unable too find much recent news Your guess is as good as mine.

Re: APC Development and related topics.

Panhard Crab.

Sounds great, except for the part about replacing heavy armor. Very enthusiastic review.

Re: Helicopter mounted Stingers

I do a lot of 30H by 60W, up to 60H by 90W. Block a main road, hold a key village or terrain feature. Most of my playing while I'm over here is on a Microsoft Surface, 12" screen, less scrolling...

Re: Helicopter mounted Stingers

Generally units. 1 infantry platoon with 1 tank and/or 1 helicopter in support. Snipers and patrols get added in during longer campaigns,rarely does it get much bigger.

Re: Helicopter mounted Stingers

I generally play very small scenarios, company or below, so I wanted to see how much could be squeezed into 12 units or less. I've been surprised at how effective these units are. Cost is high,...

Re: Helicopter mounted Stingers

Thanks everyone. Not moving helicopters is something I'd never thought of, mostly because of ATGMs. But I finally had 2 stingers launch themselves today. Nice, but perhaps it will take some getting...

Helicopter mounted Stingers

Does anyone have any game experience using helicopters carrying SAMs? So far I've not been able to get them to fire as anti-aircraft missiles. The best I've been able to do so far is to manually fire...

Re: What was the first

I think the first one that I bought was Avalon Hill's Gulf Strike in 1984, but it never ran properly. About 10 years later I purchased SSI's Panzer General and played until my last computer running...

Re: WinSPMBT on Windows 10

Syleb,
I've tried on a Surface tablet but it frustrates me too much. That's using the Surface or my finger. The keyboard/mouse combination is much less work, IMHO.
Also beware of changing the...

Re: Jets & Planes but no UAV's here.

The Afghans are starting to use the Super Tocano with laser guided Paveway and Hellfire missile among other options. So far it's been a great option against an enemy without much air defense.

Re: British Forces since 2000

Don,
Send me the link for the possible Korean vehicle. There are a couple of former Korean linguists here that would take a shot at translating it.
