  1. Hi Ian out of interest why the extended 81mm line from the 88 to the stug? Are you hoping for a lucky Tank commander kill?
  2. Hmmm how do you know "no fire" was received from there? Were you there? Your next statement seems to be trolling... I think Oleg's follow up video was aimed at this inflammatory response... FYI I was upset watching that video of people's homes being shot up but then if Russia had not invaded Ukraine that would not be happening. War destroys people's lives and the people who wage it are mere pawns of those that decide what is best in their national interest... The good thing about this thread (if there is anything good about watching people throw lead at one another) is that
  3. Hmmm too early I think to say stopped him, a pause maybe at most... Glad things are back on track...
  4. I would love CM early war... But don't think I will ever see it...
  5. A blast from the past, I remember the simpler days of watching time team on a Sunday night. Must watch TV... I remember this episode and it was good to see it again...
  6. If an opponent had the time to do that then fill your boots, count it as combat experience. You are just learning what the engine can do imo so no harm in that....
  7. Occch that Sherman went seriously boom... At least this time you know why and maybe the 2" will be enough.... (Although I have heard 8" is better) 😉 Glad you are back up and running. Looking forward to seeing more...
  8. You would have to have lottery level luck to have 120mm rounds hurt any armour. But hey you might have been lucky.. who knows... (Well I do but ain't telling... 😙)
  9. Who's Kurt? 😉 If you obtain a 4 to 1 kill rate you will be well on to way for a win.
  10. Good job with the 88mm I usually work on the basis that if each AT gun can nail a couple of tanks they will have done well... Currently you are up on the deal... Looks like no more turns until later this week if we are lucky... Ian has posted about his house move...
  11. No worries, moving home is pretty stressful, so I was surprised you got any time to play... Good opportunity to de clutter and get rid of things you never use or really don't need.
  12. 😋 That's still 25% getting hit by stuff that they can't hit back... But no problems just an observation, each to their own... Looking forward to seeing a big bang!!!
  13. The squishies are there to spot for your tanks which are the real game winners, especially Sherman's with enough HE to demolish any defending German infantry. Still not pleasant to suffer those stonks... TRPs are a pain, but can't be every where....
  14. As for the 88 target armour arc's can be double edge sword, I tend to set them as far as possible on map even if you have no los. The 88 in particular can nail things at massive range which is what you want, so never set it short imo.... Looking forward to seeing it in action, nice big bang's and explosion when (if) it hits...
  15. Hmmm I guess my reverse slope defence (aka second line of buildings) comment needs further clarification... I mean that the majority of your infantry want to have started and set up defence in position where they could not be hit unless the enemy close into 1st line of buildings. You deny the enemy of supporting fire from distance and set your heavy fire power to hit those 1st line buildings. In effect a reverse slope defence but in towns or villages. Yes you need a bit of observation but to do that you choose less obvious positions that are not so threatening but still offer observa
  16. What a nail biting end shot, who will fire first... Do you have many 120mm arty rounds left? Always a difficult decision on how long to let arty fall. I am surprised at the infantry placed in forward buildings, these are always a bullet and shell magnet... A reverse slope (aka second building line) is always better imo. Maybe one spotting squad at worse if you can not get a good spotting position away from obvious fire magnets... Getting tense....
  17. The angle does look like you should with careful movement bag it without it being able to return fire... Tempting... That would be a serious loss to the Germans.
  18. Duck and Cover.... Nice shot of the Stug wonder how that duel will go... They are really difficult to use in a built up area, so you have that edge and that you know where it is...
  19. Like waiting for buses, you wait all weekend and then they all turn up at once... Will you find the AT gun by providing it more target practice?
