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...

Amphibious Vehicles and Streams

Does amphibious capability better enable vehicles to cross streams? Reason I ask is 'cuz in a France vs Sovs scenario (#137--Against the Red Flood) the Mephisto ATGMs and AMX tanks which tried to...

Re: Scenario play and preferences

IMHO user-designed scenarios are better since they are less predictable, thus more challenging than stock generated battles as they aren't bound by force ratios along with AI purchasing, setup...

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...

Re: Sudden defensive missions

Learned from bitter experience to skip them whenever there's an option to do so. IIRC any losses in the previous battle count against you in the special one. Why take unnecessary risks if you've...

Re: maximum range vs weapon accuracy; warhead vs penetration

Re: Daunted by Long Campaign force selection

So what's the best flak to buy and later convert to SP-AAA? In a current German LC I started with 2 3.7cm flak batteries and upgraded the 4 most experienced to Wirbelwinds with lower ranged 20mm ...

Re: AP vs Bunker/Pillboxes

Re: Aircraft scoring issue

Same thing happened to me in a WW2 campaign battle. A Yak with 16 damage did not go down on the map after receiving the fatal hit maybe 10 hexes from the map edge. It showed as "destroyed" on the...

Re: Map scale

OK, so unit speeds are overstated (mine are in mph) given the time frame. Infantry moving 6 hexes in 3 minutes (reported at 6 mph) are actually going somewhat less than 4 mph, varying on whether...

Re: Red Dawn #263 Antonito
