  1. If you like the ACW then check out the Great Campaigns of the American Civil War series from MMP. https://www.multimanpublishing.com/Products/tabid/58/CategoryID/21/Default.aspx
  2. Hmmm. I am going to assume that you are trying for humor...but failed.
  3. Indeed. I have rescheduled my entire summer around a 21 Sept release.
  4. Pre-orders to release for Rome to Victory was 5 months. For Shock Force 2 it was 4 months. I'm thinking Christmas. Hopefully, I will be pleasantly surprised...at Thanksgiving.
  5. It would appear that after the first couple of ranging shots the gun is super accurate. Seems a little problematic but fixable. We need to remember that trading shots with an opposing tank is not SOP. The internal model is trying to get the first 3 shots about "right" and after that I'm guessing the extension of the accuracy model is not great but acceptable as it shouldn't happen except rarely. But I would like to see some data on weapon kills, they seem too easy. But maybe not...
  6. Maybe it's a feature? Check with Charles...
  7. Can't see any difference. What about crew experience?
  8. Have you tried the same test but with an MG-34 peppering the firing tank? I wonder if that will effect how soon he gets the range and subsequent shots.
  9. First, don't trade shots. Keep moving. Second, once you have the range it is relatively easy to hit the same spot over and over. Assuming the commander can see the hit and provide confirmation to the gunner that he has the range it is just the matter of aligning the site and setting the target at the correct range mark. Of course, this is hard to do when in combat and the other guy is shooting back, the muzzle blast is kicking up dust, the tank commander is screaming at you, you're tired, thirsty and hungry, etc. Maybe the game doesn't include enough off that...
  10. How heavy were these armored vests? Was there a German small arm that wouldn't penetrate this easily? Or was it more like a helmet, protecting against flying debris? In close-in fighting I think they wouldn't do much more than slow you down...
  11. Anybody follow @Tank_Archives on twitter? He has some good info on Soviet stuff on his website http://www.tankarchives.ca/. But his twitter feed reads like he just stepped out of the 1970's. Everything that isn't Soviet made is crap. Very amusing if he wasn't so serious...
  12. Does anyone have an opinion as to which was better - the III or the IV? Since they both had the same gun I would guess the (slightly) smaller III with better suspension would have an advantage. Probably a very tiny advantage...
  13. I understand the problem, but the use of the vehicle's would still be governed by availability within a scenario so it wouldn't get any more out of hand than situation we have right now. Or would it...
  14. I didn't ask what he knows but what he thinks of the idea...
