I've seen up to turn 5, around 1 hour (yeah, the video is huge, I'll probably finish watching it on Saturday) and so far I see you're doing well, apart from the very aggressive use of the BTR platoons and their encounter with M3 Bradleys, which led to many losses among your APCs. The aircraft that attacked you did not do much, plus you shot down most of them, so I'm curious about that dreaded A10 strike.

Oh and emprosthofilaki=vanguard.

Very aggressive? They were lucky they weren't in BMP-1s I would have them charge those M1

I remember in one MP battle where I charged and destroyed a Merkava with 5 Chaffees.

Haha, now that is something I'd love to see.

I did manage to kill T64s and T80s with Scimitars and CV40s in some games, but they are worth more than the Chaffees.

Oh I was laughing and laughing and laughing. I don't remember if I won the battle, but it was worth it for that moment alone.

The last part of this first battle is now up. Very interesting battle for me.

Next part is up. Deployment and first fights.
I did have a very nasty surprise though. For some reason I thought it was a vision 40+ battle. It isn't...

EDIT: I forgot to mention, I decided to go with much shorter videos. This is a tiny, barely over an hour and 23 min long, video.

The battle continues with losses on both sides. I think I have already lost more units so far than in the whole previous battle. OK, perhaps not that many, but still too many. Damn you smoke dischargers! At least no enemy planes yet.

Well watching this shows more than 1 way to play you use the unit roster much more than me. I tend to resolve the important stuff first while I remember then work across the map so use it far less.
Also do far less micro managing like switching weapons off when unload.
Comments are great especially when a risky shot comes off its entertaining.
Couple of things due to length of video.
1) Would spend a couple of minutes looking at the map to remember where you are at before starting the video.
2) AI turn pause the video go make a drink or something, start video & press replay turn to see what happened without all the waiting.
