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

Armor Pen Calculator can be accessed by clicking on the Utilities tab in the game startup window. RPGs fire HEAT warheads which like AP and APCR (or Sabot) can sometimes achieve penetration higher...

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

FWIW in a current LC battle as Germans a platoon of 5 Panthers kept blasting a couple Russian pillboxes with 30 or 40 shots each from the flank w/o effect save suppression. It wasn't 'til the...

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

FWIW perching a friendly on an abandoned enemy unit only gives points for crew casualties, even though it's later marked "destroyed" on the end-of-contest map and in the battle results roster....

Re: Counter battery fire question

Re: Vistula crossing

A stupendous battle with concise, informative write-up. Congratulations on the DV.

BTW how long in RL terms did this one take? The Bear Strikes (WP) took me about 15 hours. You had about twice as...

Re: Any Wreck Limit to Vision?

Yeah. It's such a game-changer that old scenarios or campaigns can play out in drastically different ways. Defenders can't depend on screening themselves from hordes of armor by picking off lead...

Re: thermal imaging...

Just finished it myself, cutting the ratio for a marginal too close for comfort (6,200:12,740). Had the 3 Leopards taking pothots at a T-80 sticking its snout out from...

Hinds may be hard to kill but now they take damage from Stingers, even from the front. Already had one chased off the map with a point of damage from one. Seems like the last patch made them more...

Re: thermal imaging...

Thanks folks. Your solutions sound pretty sensible, although easier said than done. What may have thrown me off is that in this scenario pounding the ridge with arty can be counterproductive. While...

Re: Question on infantry SAMs

Re: Any Wreck Limit to Vision?

Thanks guys. The "flaming wreck" icon clears up any ambiguity. None appeared in the WW2 scenario mentioned above but showed up in an ongoing MBT battle. Certainly not all, or even most tanks marked...

Re: Any Wreck Limit to Vision?

Fair enough. Yet it will take some getting used to. Imagine going from an environment where single wrecks block all unassisted LOS to where five wrecks in successive hexes may not block it at all....
