Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

After a long hiatus due to (1) a divorce, (2) a job change, & (3) a move, I've returned to SPMBT and the forum. I hope to post some more "stories" when I get a bit more time (hopefully including map...

Re: An annoying game "feature"

My favorite (not) experience with this effect is rolling up next to a vehicle suppressed by small arms fire, with an APC containing an engineer. Eng hops out and assaults vehicle with flamethrower...

Re: New Guy

My wife also complains about me "spending so much time playing that chicken wire game," referring to the hex grid on the screen.

Re: WinSPMBT v5.5

I'm playing my first new scenario with the smoke rounds. This is a great improvement! Just one question: ALL my tanks have smoke rounds now. I thought the fix only applied to "0" label/command...

Re: WinSPMBT v5.5

First of all, thanks to everyone who was involved, but especially to Don and Andy for their continued work on this FANTASTIC game, and of course, the new patch.

That being said, I thought smoke...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

Enemy units have been reported in the area of the southern objective, and they've probably occupied it by now! We'll have to push some infantry teams forward far enough to get a look-see and find...

Re: Counter-counter battery fire

While we're on the topic, I had a CB strike from my own arty destroy an enemy 76mm battery a few days ago. Does that count as a "kill" for purposes of experience?

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

We've got one of the scout platoons emplaced and creeping toward the village, while our infantry has unloaded in wooded areas all across the battlefield. The infantry line will be used as trip wires...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

We have returned to the Korean peninsula, to head off another incursion by those pesky Chinese. The terrain is rolling hills with moderate woods clumped in groups. We're moving in from the east,...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

The heavy M103 tanks finally caught up with the infantry on the smaller ridge to the south. Using their thick frontal armor as a defense, they plowed their way forward into close proximity to the...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

A heavy firefight developed on the western edge of the SE peak of the "bowl." A scout team blundered into an enemy squad hiding just below a large cliff as they descended it. The enemy was very...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

Once a good smoke screen had been established, another platoon was helo'd in to support the troops that came under fire after emerging from the woods down south. After the smoke cleared, even more...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

The Colonel opted to spread out around the road and make a serious effort to annhilate the enemy troops rather than smoke or suppressing them and passing through. The heavy MG's to the south kept...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

As we began to move forward, the enemy pounded the dirt road with 122mm heavy artillery. I was orinally a little ticked off at the Colonel for not allowing us to ride the tanks down the road until...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

Having pushed the VietCong/VietMinh back in the Mekong Delta area, we have gradually been flushing enemy units out of their bases and worked our way northward over the past few months. It's now the...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

The battle shaped up to be a totally one-sided massacre. The enemy attacked en-masse for the most part, had no vehicles, no armor, and few heavy guns. They got a few good shots in with their...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

Its January 1956, and our next assignment will take us to French Indochina. Thank heaven we won't be going back to Korea again. It's colder than billy-hell up in those mountains this time of year. ...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

Through clever electronic intercepts, the enemy was able to sever our communication links for the past week or so, and no reports have apparently gotten through. Their ability to penetrate our...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

Unlike the Chinese in the last engagement, who led with their tanks, the Russians have sent infantry forward quickly to feel out the area. They've used both older and the new model APC's to drive up...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

As we begin rolling, the Colonel has decided that it will be more effective to have some of us grunts ride forward on the armored vehicles. Only about a third of us will fit, so its still a long,...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

The enemy T-34's came right up to our M103's and attempted to overrun their hilltop position. It was all our crews could do to keep loading those large shells in time to fire the next round. At...

Re: Long Generated Campaign US v Communist

[to Imp: Thanks for the well wishes. Glad to be back too!]

Watching the droves of enemy tanks approach is slightly un-nerving. Even though our crews are better trained, and our armor more...
