  1. The other thing to keep in mind is that weapons in CM2 rarely are able to penetrate thru 2 walls. So, an enemy in an interior room (ie: no walls are exterior walls) will be very protected from fire coming from (say) outside. IIRC it's not until the exterior wall is destroyed that one can fire with effect through the first room onto the enemy located in the interior room. One would think that 50 cal and above would be able to fire thru several walls with effect. But, that is not the case. Hence a unit in an interior wall is in an xnt ambush position. One can put much suppression fire thru one wall, then attack thru that wall/door, and get massacred by enemy located behind the 2nd wall.

    You mean just about everyone dies? Well... it is an antiwar movie. But, some great shots of the Mi24 - looks like something out of a sci fi movie.

    What Are You Reading?

    Yeah... That's definitely the norm unfortunately. However, a few shows manage to be brilliant over many seasons. While not "fantasy" the Brit detective series "Endeavor" which is a prequel series to an older show called "Morse" has maintained its brilliance thru 6 seasons (5 are available on Amazon Prime), the 6th I started to watch when I was in the UK a couple weeks ago. The original "Inspector Morse" series which is still worth watching ran from 1987 to 2000 - 12 seasons(!)
  4. That would be interesting as this is one of the best detailed MG models I recall seeing.

    Careful... he may have been playing his sigother...
  6. Great detail/textures. Did you test this with CMBS, Olek?
  7. Am a fan of sandbox type scenarios. Looking forward to this.

    Finally got to see this Russian movie directed by Sergei Bondarchuk about a company fo paras in Afghanistan. Very good movie. And interesting to see the uniforms, choppers and vehicles. Would be great for modders. Shame no one seems to be doing CMA nowadays. :(
  10. Very atmospheric music for your video. I know I have heard it b4. Where is it from?
  11. "In addition to a "special" (i.e., atomic) bomb, the (Vulcan) aircraft was to be capable of alternatively carrying a conventional bomb load of 20,000 lb (9,100 kg)" and capable of carrying one 10,000 lb (4,500 kg) bomb to a target 1,500 nautical miles... the similar OR.230 required a "long range bomber" with a 2,000 nautical miles range." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avro_Vulcan B52 payload is something like 70,000 lb with "typical combat range of more than 8,800 miles (14,080 km) without aerial refueling." And the US has the capability of sending several. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_B-52_Stratofortress The logistics to send a sufficient number of bombers to a distant target like the Falklands seems to have been beyond Brit capability at that time. IIRC the Falklands War was reportedly a "near run thing" that stretched the former Brit power to its limit. One bomber with conventional weapons isn't going to have that much effect - esp compared to the sub sinking of Belgrano.
  12. IIRC it's possible to get a better leader when a poor one is killed off.
  13. "What is your justification for that statement?" So, more a morale booster like the Doolittle raid on Tokyo. But, since the Vulcan raid wasn't repeated (AFAIK) wasn't worth the logistical effort.
