    While doing my set up for a PBEM qb, I inadvertently perfectly aligned my Tigers and halftrucks... Only the Stummels are sticking out like a sore thumb.

    What a sight to behold!

    From the briefing: 
    Partisans are active in the AO and often attack rear area logistics and ambush convoys.  The Partisans use local villages as a base of operations.  Friendly units will often pass through villages with partisans and have no contact.  However, the commander must always be on guard for the time the partisans are triggered to emerge and cause havoc.

    Yes I couldn't agree more, the bar CM has set on simulation is it's own worst enemy,  because it creates a never ending turntable of criticism comparing what can be done in a software programing world with a business budget vs real life mechanics , and I'm guilty of it, for instance I want spreading fire in the game, but if there was fire someone would point out "why isn"t it causing ordanance to explode?why isn't it spreading at a proper rate? there isn't enough smoke relative to the size of the fire?it will never end , and if CM3 comes along it won't end there either.

    Probably a week or two after Fire & Rubble is released.  There are currently place holders for the partisans and an SS unit.   Also might want to add a few of the new vehicles that come with Fire & Rubble.  Then run quick tests again on the four AI plans to make sure nothing was broke by the unit swap, vehicle addition.

    Commanderski reacted to John Kettler in AUGUST STORM article (lots of pics)   
    Was doing some digging for a CoC colleague ref Japanese cavalry in Manchuria and found this most useful to CM future endeavors in the East. It has this truly remarkable pic, and another which will show exactly what the blithe expression "crossing the Grand Kinghan Mountains" really looked like. You might say it helps bring to life what HSU Dmitry Loza had to say of the experience. The pic in the article is of relatively level ground, but some of the slopes were so steep T-34s had to tow the highly respected Sherman tanks! BT-7s (yes, BT-7s in garrison long before the GPW and kept there to hold Japan's Kwangtung Army at bay even when Russia was in dire peril) simply died on those punishing steep slopes. Loza reported not one made it.

    Really looking forward to this!  😀
    One thing I have noticed is that there are more scenarios and campaigns that are only German against Soviet AI.  Will we be seeing more of Soviet vs German AI in Fire and Rubble?

    It's typically easier to design a scenario with the AI on defense, and I think we'll see plenty of Russian attacks in this module.

    The campaign/scenario currently has three recommended mods.  They have been tagged so will not show up in other scenarios. @benpark foliage helmets and @Fuser Aris Faces Mod CMRT.  Below are the links.
    benpark helmets
    https://www.thefewgoodmen.com/cm-mod-warehouse/combat-mission-battle-for-normandy/cmbn-infantry/cmrt-cmbn-benparks-german-field-foliage-helmet-mod/
    Aris Faces
    http://cmmodsiii.greenasjade.net/?p=483
    The third mod just removes some of the German helmets so Aris Faces Mod is more obvious.  The downside is that all German helmet chin straps disappear.  So the end result is fewer, but better, German helmets and a more battle worn look for the hard pressed German troops.  I will post the “remove some helmets” mod at CMMODS IV closer to release.  Below are some screenshots of the three mods working together.

    Commanderski got a reaction from Bulletpoint in ZIS-2 57mm AT Gun CMRT Performance   
    According to the Companion to the Red Army book (which is basically the same book as the Guide to the Red Army) it said that the ZiS-2 was not really adequate to deal with the Panthers and Tigers. 
    They used ZiS-3 more often to fight tanks.
    They did have their own version of HVAP (hyper-velocity armour-piercing) shell and maybe that's modeled as a little too powerful.

    Commanderski reacted to Aquila-SmartWargames in CMRT Air Support   
    I almost never see Air Assets in CMRT scenarios which might be tied to this not unproblematic air support system CMRT uses.
    I recently played a mission with JU-87 being EN ROUTE PREPARING right from the beginning. Even after an hour there was no sight of them. So the appearance is completely randomized over the complete mission time? They could basically show up with the mission timer having one minute left?
    I always had the impression that mission designers set areas for them while designing but now understand that they completely independent roam the battlefield. How in detail is the friendly fire danger? Is it tied to how enemy target rich the environment is? In a testing scenario I just placed some Opel Blitz and several German air elements and the first aircraft element that appeared after a minute or so immediately attacked the friendly Opel trucks. There were no enemy units present on the map. When air support is scheduled is it perhaps a good idea to wait and let them handle a target-rich environment to prevent that the air force pilots arrive don´t find enemy units, and thus instead start attacking friendly forces?
    As concealed units under foliage might be harder to identify correctly as friendly is concealing my units from my own airforce making it worse or better 😂? 
    Besides this it would be definitely great if this system sees change or improvement in the upcoming expansion.
