Re: Apache helicopter countermeasure

While I don't have access to the game code from in-game experience I find that armor 1 makes helos pretty resistant (but not immune) to small arms, 2 most MMGs, 3 VERY difficult to damage with MPADs...

Re: M4 Carbine Range question

I'll work on separating the M16A4 ACOG and M4A1 ACOG in the USMC weapons tab and updating the units effected. Expect an updated USMC OOB sometime in the future.
M16A4 = 9
M4A1 = 7
M4 = 6

Re: Apache helicopter countermeasure

Unfortunately due to the way armor works in WinSPMBT heat seeking anti-air missiles can't just ignore armor so MPADs tend to be fairly ineffective vs armored attack helos.

It's just "one of those...

Re: M4 Carbine Range question

Heck, when I was aboard dear old AS-32 in 1975-7 the Navy still had a BAR in the armory (I got to fire it once, fun weapon) and the Marines used M14s. But the new gear (usually) goes to those that...

Re: M4 Carbine Range question

Not sure where you got your info but the USMC never switched from the M16 to the M4 en mass like the US Army did.

Yes, they used M4s, when available (usually borrowed from the US Army) during...

Re: M4 Carbine Range question

Depends on the weapon.

They are "bench tested" to determine their inherent accuracy. No weapon is 100% accurate, variations in the powder charge, heat warping of the barrel, etc. means no two...

Re: M4 Carbine Range question

Personally I edit the heck out of many things

In general I increase the accuracy of MGs and reduce the damage, they're GREAT at suppression but don't hit anyone that often except in unusual...

Re: M4 Carbine Range question

The original M4, with just iron sights, while it can certainly shoot further has an "effective" engagement range of about 200m. While you can, if you have the luxury of lining up the perfect shot,...

Re: Dogfight videos

You always need to take the engagement situation into account when watching such videos.

Is the F-22 designed/intended to be a "dogfight" aircraft? No.
It's intended to attack from outside...

Re: Picture fixes

As near as I can determine the USMC operated 6-10 HO3S's in Korea. So probably not worth adding to the OOB.

Re: winSPMBT version 10.0 - 15.0 Consolidation patch (2021)

It's really not all that different from a board game.
Instead of charts you have what are basically spreadsheets.

Weapons are used by units.
Units are used by formations.

Re: MBT's

There's a major difference in the role each views tanks filling.
The US Army sees them as primarily an anti-armor asset the USMC as infantry support. Both of course use them for each role, but it's...

Re: USMC Master Sgt. gives son his first salute

I hope he got his silver dollar !

I also note the PC slant to the post. I REALLY wonder what's going on these days with the US military. I'm glad I retired in 1994.

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

Another "minor" asset many OOBs (not just the USMC) have access to is naval gunfire.


If US forces are in range they have access to each other's air assets.

It was "common knowledge" (i.e....
