Re: Apcalc

Which goes a long way to explaining why my precious T-90As with frontal armor against HEAT of well over 100 get damaged by Javelins with minumum PEN of 90. Didn't you say this game was unpredictable...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

No bug. Countless times I've bombarded certain hexes "blind" just ahead of forward infantry ("beaters). Most of the time, if my infantry haven't been too suppressed by their own barrage, they advance...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

Not interested in upping arty (also use it at 100% as with all other preferences) since IMO it's fine against infantry in the open or in regular terrain cover and buildings.

Since dug-in...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

Arty is fine against troops NOT dug-in IMHO so wouldn't want to upset the balance otherwise. The advice given by yourself and others is sound; the game cannot be all things to all people and there...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

Didn't mean to suggest that arty was a panacea which can drive out dug-in troops by itself. Just to relieve some frustration attending repeated mass barrages which have no effect at all save...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

While we're at it could we please allow arty below 155mm (down to, say 105mm) at least an outside chance of causing casualties to dug-in units? As it now stands it's pretty much pointless to have...

Re: Generated Campaigns, Jets and UAVs

Heh-heh. Now before I play defense vs Ukraine airstrikes and spotters show up on the misc menu. So I grabbed a UAV to see how they work. (Had one as Russia vs China as assaulter in an earlier...

Re: Generated Campaigns, Jets and UAVs

Maybe it's 'cuz the points have been less than 8,000 for the first campaign and less than 7,000 for the second. Never recall seeing any air formations at all, let alone spotter planes on the support...

Generated Campaigns, Jets and UAVs

Got a couple questions:

1) Have completed one 7-battle campaign (Israel vs Russia, Syria and Turkey) and am now playing as Russia vs Ukraine, UK and USA, both in late 2018. So far, after 9...

Re: Merkava 4M AAMG vs Infantry

Yes, the AAMG will fire with other weapons turned off or using the "w" key at all ranges. However they don't usually fire with other weapons turned on except at short ranges (mostly within 300 meters...

Re: Merkava 4M AAMG vs Infantry

OK thanks. Our family is in Cebu, the Central Visayas. We only got some strong gusts and relatively short periods of heavy rain as the typhoon's outflung spiral arms rotated over us. So we're OK....

Re: Merkava 4M AAMG vs Infantry

Yes, the Merkava MK 4M. They (AAMGs in slot #4) aren't firing at infantry. There've been countless opportunities to fire within the 60 degree frontal arc. Actually they haven't fired at all since...

Merkava 4M AAMG vs Infantry

In a current campaign in 2018 the Merkava 4Ms do not fire their AAMGs against infantry, even with their cannons turned off or down to 4 Heat rounds. Is this normal? Thanks.

Update: Now one...

Re: Arty penalty

That would be 2.5% of your TOTAL force, or one-half of artillery points over the 15% allowed while defending (or delaying).

Re: Arty penalty

Bear in mind there's no overload if you're assaulting so you can buy as much as support points allow. Meanwhile if defending you can probably buy enough for maybe 20% of your force; a 2.5% overload...

Re: Which vehicles lead a Cav push?

Dunno about 1 but for 2 HTs seem the best. They're cheap so you don't risk a tank, plus they're usually faster and smaller than tanks so even if an ATG or tank fires at it they might miss. Just...
