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

I tend to ignore reserve units and legacy units ... also FOC, and look at probable deployments.

Example: At the start of the first Gulf War the USMC had a handful of M1's but acquired enough...

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

ACK!

I knew the EA-6B was stood down (more due to airframe fatigue then any desire to replace it I believe) in 3/2019, I also knew the USN replaced it with the EA-18G. I ASSUMED the USMC had done...

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

I did, why I pointed out the F/A-18C/D was not on the list the SDB is to be certified for. As to the existing use on the EF-35C Ferret (starting in 2018) it's not worth creating a new unit for a...

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

Fastboat,

My current understanding is the USMC wants to completely transition to the F-35 ASAP for the sake of simplifying their logistic requirements. The F-35B will replace all Harrier...

OK, so we won't see FOC in the US Air Force or US Navy till apx. 2023 Both of which have FAR more aircraft to manage then the USMC and for different reasons REQUIRE a fully operational logistic...

Re: MBT's

It may when there's only one (or two) snipers. But amid the hail of gunfire that's a typical squad (or larger) sized firefight I doubt a sniper would be noticed by the system.

Re: South African Casspir MK3 MRAP armed with 106 mm M40 recoilless gun

The various M40's from the USMC OOB also have FC and RF 2 based on the spotting rifle that's part of the M40 (and M40A1).

The M40 and M40A1 are pretty much interchangeable BUT there was a...

Re: MBT's

Sounds like the USMC plans a fire support variant of the ACV with a 30mm cannon as well.

Currently ZERO information on such a vehicle existing beyond the "We'd like X." stage.

If they continue...

Weapon Sounds

Don't know if you can use sounds from a royalty free site but there are many here worth checking out.

In particular "M 82 Barrett 50 Cal" and "50 Cal Machine Gun".

Re: APC Development and related topics.

We currently have them available in July 2020 (I usually use a mid-year deployment if other info isn't available) so it was a pretty close guess.

I'll add this to my list of things to submit to...

Re: The FASTBOAT Patch page.

The USMC started deactivating it's tank battalions in July 2020 and it's looking like the plan is to have deactivated them all by the end of 2021.

BUT!

Re: Increasing Helo Damage for Dummies

Depends on the helo.

Hinds ARE flying tanks, with Apaches a close second. Most transport helos can be shot down by small arms.

Personally I give early helos 0 armor then come about the Huey I...

Re: Booby traps, IEDs, and Immobilization

Sometimes (rarely) immobilization is "fixed" and a unit regains it's mobility. Damage to a unit us never "fixed". So it may be that a mobility "hit" is treated separately (and differently) then one...

I suspect they will Wulfir.
I have no clue what a Swedish Amphibious Battalion consists of but it sounds like an interesting variant. I'd be careful about giving the Muj off-map (or even on-map)...

Re: MBT's

Ever since the start of WW II (and a bit before in the Spanish Civil War) there has been an on-going "war" between infantry and armor.

One or the other gains an advantage, the other counters it. ...

Re: Any Thoughts?

I like big maps and long battles.

Gives you the chance to use some tactics instead of rush in and kill.
