Re: Artillery observer selection issue

Hmm, I don't think you're cancelling the selection of the BO unit when entering and exiting the HQ screen. The HQ screen itself has the BO unit already selected when entering and when exiting the HQ...

Re: "Nationalized" OOB's

Voted to keep things as they are. I'd hate to see the Italian names disappear in particular. I can't imagine the game without Bersaglieri or Camicie Nere or Autoblinda's.

The old Hungarian names...

Re: Artillery Delay and Supression - One Post - Two Can's of Worms

A non command unit will look for a higher up first. A command unit will try to rally itself first. So the platoon commander will try to rally himself even if in range of the company HQ. That's why...

Re: Artillery Delay and Supression - One Post - Two Can's of Worms

Not quite, if you rally a non-command unit it's platoon leader will be the first to try and rally the unit. Only after the platoon leader fails will the unit use it's own rally attempt.
So start...

Just responding to the suppression issue here, not the arty.

Re: TI what is it good for?

For modern games I'd rarely play on anything but a very large map (max size or at least close to it) and with enough terrain features to break LOS considerably. It doesn't have to be close terrain...

Re: TI what is it good for?

NATO TI vs WP non TI can be a problem in games where the parameters (points and map size) are chosen to fit the (much more expensive) NATO force (which happens all the time). That means that if you...

Re: Armoured Car Tactics

Marek is right. The story of polish cavalry charging german armor with lances is a myth. Never happened. But it makes for a good story so it keeps getting repeated including by people (and...

Re: Some random thoughts

Re: Some random thoughts

Easy answer. Plenty of artillery, area fire and scouting (including by heavy choppers).

Don't make the mistake of firing arty AFTER you've made contact. Fire en masse at places you don't want them...

Re: Dirt Roads/Paved Roads

A dirt road is basically nothing more than fairly flat clear terrain with almost no vegetation. The way to mimic that in the game is to create a trail of earth hexes through other terrain (clear,...

Re: Wasting High Explosive Anti Tank Rounds

All units? Well for MBT's that lack HE rounds HEAT rounds were supposed to fill the double role against both soft and hard targets. So I don't see a problem there.

Re: FG 42 fjg Gruppe

Bigger squads are relatively cheaper; ie they are more expensive in absolute terms but not if you look at cost per man. So that's a factor to take into account too.
