  1. IIRC the game takes into account small holes/openings that are not visible to the player.
  2. Posture does matter. So if a tank commander has LOS to a target that does not mean that the gunner and gun does. Similarly, if the 3rd ammo carrier of an HMG team has LOS to a target but the gunner does not, the LOS tool appears to allow you to fire at the target, but the HMG will not. Similarly, a running man/squad can have LOS, but as soon as he stops and kneels, he loses LOS. CM2 can be thought of as "The game of LOS determination".
  3. While traveling found this interesting Russian-made film. Quite good as a film, but very interesting re the realistic-looking tanks, other vehicles and uniforms. Story starts at start of war with T-34/76's vs Pz III's, and then gets to wars end with Panthers vs T-34/86's. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-34_(film)
  4. "somewhat modifies" Just making sure the point got across... Seems very clear these days.
  5. For a very readable history of the US and UK involvement in the ME and rivalry as to who would end up as the dominant power, LORDS OF THE DESERT by James Barr is very entertaining and highly recommended. https://www.google.com/books/edition/Lords_of_the_Desert/vzNGDwAAQBAJ?hl=en&gbpv=1&printsec=frontcover
  6. "Critics have found the Marxist theory of economics badly in error, many of his predictions failed to materialize. He expected that working people in capitalist countries would, over time, be reduced to penury. This has not happened. He predicted that most of the middle class would be absorbed into the proletariat. Wrong again." Um...
  7. Hah... I have painted my entire house... twice!

  11. Ok, makes sense (esp for recon vehicles) to ALWAYS use HIDE when stationery. Another tactical wrinkle newly learned.
  12. I used to use QUICK. But, now I figure if the vehicle doesn't need to use SLOW, MOVE or HUNT for any purpose, one may as well move FAST. If I was in a vulnerable target, that seems like RL.
  13. It's the bunching up that's the problem - even in defense. In my games it's often that I want to put a couple of HMG's or several squads in a particular building so they can blow the hell out of something, and then they get hit with many casualties more than if there had only been one team or squad in the building.
