Re: CIWS/VIRSS Vs ATGM/AGM

Just had an incident where an HJ-8 attacked a K-2. The message said that the EW defeated the missile, yet the missile struck home anyway and blew up the tank on a front hit (can't recall hull or...

Re: MBT's

OK, after 3 meeting engagements in mostly level, lightly wooded terrain (random each time) on a 110X120 map with 41 visibility here are the results:

Test one: Russian first player, 13 T-72B3/B4s...

Re: Merkava invincible?

You can say that again. And not "just" missiles but APCR from a 125mm Russian tank cannon (125mm Gun 05) with average PEN of 96 within 650 meters. It goes below the Merkava 4M's frontal threshold of...

Re: WINSPMBT cited in "Best Modern War, Cold War & WW3 wargames" article by Wargamer

Heartfelt congratulations to Don and Andy for a well-deserved endorsement by one of the wargaming industry's primary authorities. Let's hope this recognition is at least some compensation for all the...

Re: Feature requests for 2019

Dunno about targeting and RF subsystems but IMHO the frequency of mobility kills is fine as it is, especially when considering the possibility of "odd situations" when coding for running gear...

Re: Arab vs Israel Campaign

Really. Just blew up an Abrams with a Kornet at 250 meters! Usually they're junk under 400 meters but this brave team managed to get another hit on another tank in the same hex but did no damage....

Re: VIRSS, SDs and Tank Smoke Rounds

OK, apparently nothing's changed. Didn't see any message at all on the second shots, but got the "VIRSS defeats Missile" on the first ones (have Message Delay at one-half so shouldn't miss anything)....

VIRSS, SDs and Tank Smoke Rounds

Sorry did forum search (nothing) then DuckDuck and Google. All I got on this was something from The Blitz back in 2007 and some quotes (from Don or Andy?) concerning how VIRSS works in the game....

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

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...
