    • The German campaign gives you command of the tip of the spear in Kampfgruppe Peiper's drive on the Meuse. Battle your way through Stavelot, Stoumont, and other historical locations. You will have a lot of tough decisions to make as you balance the need for speed, rest, and fuel while you try to break through American lines before you are surrounded and overwhelmed. 

    Are there changes to the campaign system? Or is it the same as before where you choose which route to take by choosing an exit or objective?


  2. Nestled deep in the bowels of the CMBN chat group is a Bulge title bone from the end of March(!), though the posters went a little crazy and got the topic locked. I think we're a bit past due for a new bone, myself and I've been dropping hints in that regard. Heck, somewhere in the schedule a whole new product site and discussion board should be popping up!

    Found one!  This is for anyone who has not been to the CMBN forum in a while, as I have not.

    That'll do for now. :-D


  4. Flown there by this imaginary bad boy:

    In the future, a fleet of heavy transport aircraft will reportedly be capable of moving a strategic unit of 400 Armata tanks, with ammunition, to anywhere in the world. And probably at hypersonic speed, enabling Russia to mount a global military response.

     

     

    Well...at least they qualified it with "probably".

     

    :D :D :D

     

    What will they think of next?


  5. If I split off my anti-tank specialists from the main body of a squad and that squad has AT-4s, then all of the AT-4s go to the Anti-tank team not allowing them to acquire the Javelin CLU. However they are able to acquire the spare Javelin missile.

     

    The only way around this is to leave the AT specialists attached so the missile load can be spread around.

     

    It seems all rifle squads are stuck with an AT4 or two as a default load out which the AT specialists are stuck with when split from the squad.  This is reasonable since they ARE AT specialists. 

     

    How about not automatically giving a rifle squad AT4s and leaving the AT4s in the Bradley?

    Why not leave the AT specialists attached to the squad, you ask?  Im glad you asked!  Because Id like to leave the Javelin toting team out of harms way until they are needed.


  6. I unbuttoned my soldiers in a .50cal Stryker and put a cover are up for the Stryker. I noticed the unbuttoned passengers in the rear facing each other and not back to back looking outboard.

    Above you will see the cover arc for armor on the left.

    In this image there is no cover arc.

     

    Both Strykers had a cover arc. This Stryker in the image above had a regular cover arc and the passengers also faced each other.

     

     

     

     

     

    Ok...wierd thing. After I typed the above comments I ALT-Tabbed back into the game to experiment some more, and I could not replicate this.  But fortunately I have pictures. :)


  7. How about another poll asking what features you are willing to do without while the AI is being developed? What are you willing to sacrifice?  It seems Battlefront is always coming out with improvements in each new game or module.  I cant imagine what is already in the works.  Although, personally I would much rather see an improvement on the LOS levels to allow for proper use of weapons such as the Krizantema or the TOW Stryker behind a defilade. Same for recon/observation vehicles.  Maybe even smaller action spots.


  8. I love that image. I especially like the gatling gun on the left sidet :D

    Looks like the Armarta is going to be in in the CMBS: Total Overkill module, along with the BMPT. I mean, how many barrels has this thing? 1 x 125 to 152 mm main gun, 1 x 30mm chain gun, at least 3 x 7,62 on the gatling gun + an additional 7,62 coaxial MG - this makes 6 barrels in total. History has clearly shown that multi-barrel weapon systems on MBTs are significantly cooler than their single-barrel counterparts.

     

     

    When I was very young (5 years old-ish) I would draw alot of pictures. And alot of those pictures were of planes and tanks. And those planes and tanks had lots of guns on them pointing in every direction.  Either the Russians read my mind...or there are pre-schoolers in their design bureaus. 

    That thing looks like a maintenance/supply nightmare.

    Same scene with the ship, now with red, white and blue commentary.

     

    Also amusing, the translated title of this video is "On board the Freedom arrived in Riga polite black people, Abrams tanks and BMP Bradley". Polite Black Men>Polite Green Men

     

     Major General O'Connor seemed enthusiastic about being there. He knows how to give a speech. :)

     

    On another note, how long does it take to repaint a whole Cavalry Regiment? ;)
