    Ukrainian Side is Seriously Underpowered

    ...and here I thought it was a hideously mutated T-64, but the SHTORA boxes didn't make sense for that.

    New Scenario: Tactical Operations Center

    For some reason, no comments I post on anything over there ever show up.

    Could there be a CM Korea?

  7. Moot point. The game is designed to run in real time. HUNT should take effect immediately as advertised.

    New Scenario: Tactical Operations Center

    Since the scenario is released, I could post some screenshots I took, no spoilers though. MOS will have already seen most of these. I've been meaning to get back into the scenario, but it's something I would need to block off a whole day for. I just can't enjoy Combat Mission in bite-sized chunks. A couple of jobs right off the bat. NEED AMMO seems rather easy... Terrain can prove challenging. I hope y'all brush up on your forest fighting skills. Engineers are worth their weight in gold. Sometimes I really wish we had helicopters. Oh, well. Strykers are pretty cool too. I once read the posting entitled, "Clearing Buildings, Quick and Agile," but the only thing I could think of was, 'Why didn't they just plaster the building with 40 mike-mike instead?' To this day I still don't understand it. Managed to take one alive. Rare occurrence. A modern-day Kampfgruppe. Engineer Team, Machinegun, Platoon HQ, and the Battalion S4 on safari. Occasionally, you will get into VERY close contact.

    Tank tactics: why the regression?

    I dunno. I have a long history of unconventional solutions to conventional problems. My playthrough of The Hornet's Nest is easy proof of that.

    Tank tactics: why the regression?

    Nice to know you have such high regard for taxpayer dollars. Didn't you get the memo about NOT firing all of Uncle Sam's retirement benefits downrange at every opportunity?!

    Tank tactics: why the regression?

    PER MAN?! Geez, and people call me a Pixeltruppen sadist... This is a prime example of where to pass out extra ammo before a scenario begins. Jeeps are not bulletproof, so why you would drive one around during a combat situation is beyond me. I disembark all jeeps at the start of a scenario, and pass out all short ammo, such as SMG ammo, at the start of the scenario. The only time I actually use jeeps is if a unit needs a radio. I never even knew that was a thing. Then again, I barely play Commonwealth forces due to my utter disdain for Canadians.

    This is the end: I have to run to work now, but I'll be back later to write a few posts with some analysis and things.
