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

We've long known top USAF commanders have very little interest in anything that's not an air superiority fighter or long range bomber. Ground support exists primarily because they don't want the US...

Re: MBTs (Take 2)

What I found most interesting from that YouTube was his figures on how many of each type was available. Most folks assume the majority of Russian tanks are T90s or T80s, neither of which apparently...

MBTs (Take 2)

Just so we have a place to bring up interesting information and discuss MBT issues.

Let's start with a Russian talking about Russian tanks....

Re: The Russian way of war

VERY useful.

I've always based my scenario designs on Soviet activity in Afghanistan and the Chetanya and their TO&E. Nice to have some professional analysis from subject matter experts!

Re: Adjusting Vision

The vision rating in WinSPMBT is primarily night vision (at 40+ it includes thermal imaging thus can see thru smoke/dust).

If the scenario visibility is set higher then the vision rating the...

Re: How do you get a PGM armed AC to use its other weapons?

Turn off the Maverick in the bombardment menu.

Re: Scenario 4. Egyptian armor - Six Day War

That's pretty much the path I'm probably going to take. Why I asked for (and received) cut down portions of the map some time ago (map making and editing is NOT my thing).

It's amazingly hard to get info on what the South Vietnamese were doing around The Citadel (and northern part of the city) while the USMC was clearing the southern part of the city. And while I can...

It is a nice picture.

And the flag isn't attached, just the loader showing off a bit I'd guess ;)

I love the commentary on your tactical thinking shahadi. It really helps to get a feel for what players are thinking when they do scenarios. As a former intel weenie I just don't think and view...

Re: Finnish OOB ATV/Motorcycle/Snowmobile suggestions

While the USMC occasionally uses quad bikes, and snowmobiles, neither is a TO&E item and the number available is small. They're used "as needed". They also have skis and mountain climbing gear (in...

Re: MBT's

That was pretty much my understanding too.

The USMC acquired it's M1s/M1A1's between Nov 1989 (211 MBTs) and 2008 (44 MBTs used to increase the size of the two active duty tank battalions by one...

Re: Perhaps additional settings for "AI Tank Heavy"?

Good way to test your revised OOB is to generate a few "Battles" with the same date and using the same OOB as you're modding.

See what the AI buys, find the formations you don't like in the OOB...

Re: MBT's

As I understand it all the USMC M1's have been upgraded to M1A1 Heavy Common Firepower Enhancement Package (M1A1HC FEP) status so are pretty much on par with the SEP V2 already. The differences are...

Re: Pakistan ORBAT

Artillery is a bit of a pain in the arse.

While it CAN be used in a direct fire mode it's rarely done because it's usually more useful as indirect fire. Then you run into things like the Russian...

Re: Perhaps additional settings for "AI Tank Heavy"?

What the AI buys is heavily influenced by the amount of points it has.

It will almost always buy one foot mobile infantry company, but after that what can it afford? Tanks are expensive.

Re: MBT's

My understanding is most (if not all) USMC M1A1 FEPs have the mounts for Trophy (which was deployed in the Corps in 2016). It's more a matter of if they have enough systems and deem it necessary to...

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

As long as they can scavenge parts why not continue to use a system that works? I certainly wouldn't try using an OV-10 or an AC-130 vs the Russian air defense system, but against ISIS, why not.

Well, the Harrier is a bit long in the tooth for a front-line air support system, and the USMC DOES rely rather heavily on "airborne artillery"...

Re: APC Development and related topics.

I keep thinking about how happy the guys in M3's and Sd.Kfz. 251's were that they weren't in an unarmored truck, and now we have "APCs" with almost as much armor as a top tier MBT.

Re: Extremely Large Map (ELM) Feasibility.

ONLY in the scenario designer.

And it's a bit of a pain-in-the-***. No real way it could work other then how it does mind you, but still a bit of a pain if you're doing a large scenario (which I...
