Default Help with Helo Lift

Just getting back into WinSPMBT and having a problem. I'm currently playing the Cold Steel Campaign. Done well with the first two battles. Came to the third where I have to use heavy helios to airlift my units to an airfield. How can I get the troops and vehicles to load onto the helios.

Default Re: Help with Helo Lift

load/unload from a helo is exactly as with any other vehicle, as described in the tutorial, and in the "deployment screen" menu section of the GG.


Method 1 - Select the transport unit then use the "load/Unload" button or the L key, and then select the unit to load, which must be in the same hex as the transport (any hex is allowed in the deployment screen, or alongside for barges).

Method 2 - Select the passenger, then hit the load button or L key and point to the transport. Method 2 is the only way to load multiple passengers.

To load vehicles - ensure the transport has sufficient load capacity, and the vehicle to be loaded has no passengers loaded on it. Proceed as above.

Cheers
Andy

I have some problems during gameplay, problems that slow my gameplay and enjoyment. I'm sure

is my fault, so I ask help here to improve my tactics:
Here my problems

-During Meeting engegements, the enemy units always kill me before I can found it, I'm using

short movements of 1 hex a time, and still get killed by the enemy.

-In close terrain, forests and cities, I try to use combined arms, using infantry to scout,

also advancing 1 hex a time with tanks in the next hex, anyway the enemy hit me, killing

entire squads or pinning/routing it, If I use AFV is worse with burning hulls around.

-Is not infantry too hard?? It cost ages to kill enemy squads, when I "kill" a soldier, I

count here also the injured or panicked and dispersed soldiers, so a bit more high rate of

infantry kills will be great.

-I play mainly with USSR, and even when the matchs are equaled in terms of FC and

experience, my units fail a lot of shoots and receive a lot more damage.

That's it Thank's in advance

Another thing I can't understand is the point sistem. Yesterday I play a meeting engagement, India Vs Pak October 2007, me as India, after the 18 turns I managed to kill 222 soldiers, 12 M113, 4 Type 85, 2 jeeps wit the lost of 11 soldiers, a ZSU-23, a Arjun Mk2 and 3 BMP3, I have control of hal the VP, and I get a DRAW with less points than Pakistan!!
Is strange

It sounds like the VP's your opponent still holds are worth more than the ones you have. All VP's are not worth the same.

You need to get 4x the points to get a marginal victory so if you have 4000 points your opponent cannot have more than 1000. If he does the game is classed a draw

Also, the Arjuns and BMP's 3's you lost are worth much more than Type 85's and M113 your opponent lost.

Which "Main Problems" exactly ? You say on one hand the AI is killing you too easily but then it's too hard to kill it back. If you really need a bit of help while learning to play the game adjust the "Infantry toughness" for you so it's higher than 100% and lower it for the AI until you find it's getting easier with experience then put them back to 100% for both

Also it's possible to adjust "Spotting" and "Hitting" values.

http://www.battlefront.com/products/...nzerintro.html

Try that URL. I haven't read it yet, I just did a google on 'panzer training manual' and took that as the best of a poor selection.
There used to be a site called "Panzers Vorward" or maybe 'achtung panzers vorward' That had the scanned pages of the german officers tactics hand book. My German is worse then sucks but I managed to get thru most of it with the help of babbblefish. Some of it was useful, some of it worthlesss for a IGOUGO system. Example; It was considered critical for tank formations to break cover at the same time. One platoon in over watch while the other charges out of the tree line or over the crest. That, of course, is impossible in SP.
The officers training manual was nick named "Aunt Maude" or auntie Maude in german. Auntie is a german word that crossed with the Saxons (Sax was a short sword in old german), it's german spelling is about the same as English and those type words give me fits. So find the proper german spelling for 'auntie' and google it.
