    Sequoia got a reaction from Pete Wenman in Just a thought-Combat Mission is so authentic and immersive we nickpick any blemish?   
    Just wondering if the standard we hold Combat Mission games to is higher than that of other games? That is, the standard needs to be close to a perfect rendition of reality.  When one sees a blemish, and the blemish may be different things to different people, we exaggerate the importance of the blemish as far as actual game play goes. It's an psychological thing perhaps I'm thinking. The games are immersive and that immersion is appealing, so when that one finds that one blemish that breaks the immersion for them, they're passionate about the blemish. In a way this passion towards the blemish is a credit to the passion and immersion the CM games can bring.   I think the combat flight simulators fall into this category as well but that's about it.

    That'll happen when you have to fight for survival from the very beginning and find fascists and capitalists arrayed against you from within and without. Haiti has had a similar experience - It's hard to have a stable and prosperous society when you have a giant target on your back. Cuba survived when all of the socialist governments in South America that tolerated liberalism within their borders and didn't militarize their societies fell to coups and the USSR outlived the other socialist governments that were crushed in 1918-20. 
    There's not much to speculate about. The alternative was not only the complete eradication of the European Jewry, but also most of the people of Eastern Europe as well.
    This is wandering a long way from Afrika Korps but I think the tide is beginning to turn against Cold War historiography and apologia for White Terror.

    I certainly remember the initial CMBN screenshot of a Tiger Tank and the uproar it caused.

    Here's what I found, and it's consistent with Syrian Army organization in SF2. Motor Infantry would use BTRs or BMPs to get around, could be either depending on availability but I think BMPs would be in the minority.

    And the Company. That website has other formations as well. Syrian organization in SF2 is entirely consistent with these tables. It'd be hard to find anything more official, and this looks reasonable enough combined with what Battlefront assembled for the game.

    I'm also hoping someday Rangers and Commandos get added to CMBN. Plus CMBN needs the Brummbar. just saying.

    This is a very good point, and one that is often overlooked. During war, lots of chances are taken, usually based on incomplete information. Some generals are brilliant, most are at least decently competent, but the ones that we praise the most are the lucky ones.

    You may propose anything you wish, and I doubt you'd be surprised you're far from the first to propose something with the IDF. Politics may indeed have something to do with it, but I think it's mostly to do with the BFC team's interest and the sales potential.

    That's a Hungarian Flag so probably still not the Russian game cover. But I found it as the icon for this page:

    Also did you guys know there was a book that covered strategy written for CMBB: https://www.amazon.com/Combat-Mission-Barbarossa-Berlin-Strategy/dp/B0063T9GZC
    I didn't - cool!

    Announced projects they're working on:
    Red Thunder End of War Module
    Final Blitzkrieg Commonwealth and End of War Module
    Black Sea US and Russian Marine module.
    Lots to keep them busy for at least two more years I'd say. Anything beyond that I doubt BFC will share before the next New Years bones post from Steve.

    The model's faces look like they need to be re-oriented.
    The textures also obviously need to be re-assigned, but that you know. I'd do that after any fixes on the model. Unless you like swearing.

    Hi
    I´ve been trying to mod the boxcar that Aquila has shared into a WWII boxcar, but there are some strange shades/glares on it - and neither of us have any idea how to get rid of them.
    Aguila suggested that @sbobovyc or @37mm might know how to fix this.
    Also the texture seems a lot more blurry than other textures.

    Any ideas?

    T34s are still being fired up on youtube. Panthers couldn't make it 100 miles w/o mechanical issues. You may want to think about that last sentence.

    Well I don't think the Pershing was too little too late as the Allies won the war. Just as more Panthers would have been better than the King Tiger, lots and lots of the reliable Shermans was an excellent strategy. Tank vs Tank duels was only a small part of what Tanks were used for. Even vs the Panther the Sherman the had the advantage of at least being more likely to get there when you needed it. I think people underestimate how much maintenance has to be performed on heavy tracked vehicles.
