Re: MBT's

The problem with jamming is it makes you an easily pinpointed target. So the real question is how would US anti-radiation missiles fare?

As far as I know (and I stress this is a "best guess"/info I have) the only time they put the reactive armor on is if they'll be in an urban situation. This of course means time/planning...

Re: Abrams

Being more inclined to "borrow" tech then the US Army during Gulf I the USMC got ERA kits for their M60's and armored bulldozers from Israel. Replacing the M60s with M1s, was always "in the plans"...

Re: Abrams

A few years back the USMC fielded the "Blazer", a LAV with a 25mm gatling gun and 8x Stingers, but it was withdrawn from service.

I suspect this was because the 25mm lacked the range and ability...

Re: Number of active players

It might be because this is the only game (I'm aware of) that allows people to play with their own national army.

ERA ends to have adverse effects on nearby infantry and soft-skin vehicles.

Re: Number of active players

Depends what you mean by "many".
Sure it's not millions, but probably in the thousands.
But most folks aren't really interested in simulations.
They want "bang bang shoot em up real time first...

Re: Snowdrifts

I've managed to damage Hinds (armor 2? weren't they 4 pre 2019?) with Stingers (warhead 4) BUT even when you hit it's only like 1 in 4 that causes damage, the rest bounce off.

Re: Snowdrifts

Yep, half the "fun" of winter warfare is restricted mobility. The other half is keep your troops alive and fit for battle.

Even more fun is "black ice".

I once took out 20m of barbed wire fence and did a number on my car when I hit a patch. No indications at all, no snow nearby, I'd been driving a couple hours so had...

Having grown up in South Dakota and Minnesota I like to think I have a "little" experience with snow.

As jp10 said, drifts can be near invisible anyplace but perfectly flat terrain, and sometimes...

I have an old laptop that's XP, and it'll stay that way. Sometimes that DOS underlayer is damn useful.

Re: Tactics/Strategy thread

Personally I always (when possible) buy one unit of off-map CM artillery (with a decent range) and leave it in reserve for counter-battery. Sooner or later it will fire on that pesky AI/opposition...

Re: WinSPMBT v13 Corrections

I'm sure the passengers in the MRZR have the typical squad/platoon comm systems. But that's the passengers, it doesn't have built-in comm ... it also makes the unit cheaper :D

Re: AA Defense

AA is very much a "luck" unit.
Do you hit at all?
Do you do enough damage to drive off/kill anything?

Re: Jets & Planes but no UAV's here.

I keep having flashbacks to the MV-22.
To expensive.
To dangerous.
To whatever ...

Or the AV-8.
No problems for years then they let nuggets fly them and crash, crash, crash.

WinSPMBT v13 Corrections

Since v13 is scheduled to be the last upgrade for WinSPMBT I figured we could use a thread for ONLY OOB corrections/fixes.
