  1. I've been micro-managing AI & user controlled troops in CM:SF2 non-stop all week, possibly longer, sure feels like it.....Not so much as a hint of a problem, even with small, inexperienced, poorly led units (they are just as dumb as they should be).
  2. Another map is done, 'Bien Dong Co Plain', the 'Sea of Grass': About as close to 'tank country' as Bong-Hai gets.
  3. Cool.....Ramadi is kind of popular hereabouts. Doubt that was the sentiment for the artwork model though.
  4. @sburke Please could you check the various artillery you receive against what's stated in the briefings too. I also seem to vaguely recall one briefing didn't seem to match the map and situation very well either (as if the wrong one had been imported), but I've no idea which, it was a long time back.
  5. Me too.....A couple of my pet formations got upgraded to BMP-3Ms because it looks so nasty in game.
  6. Superb.....Now I finally know why I'm ordering these: Drilling them out and re-polishing the inside will be interesting (they are 1/72 scale)!
  7. I did exactly the same with randomly generated CM1 maps and I feel pretty much the same about the idea of having random maps in CM2.....I can think of an awful lot of other things I'd rather see first (persistent map damage, reinforcement by trigger, duration limited occupy objectives, AI painted artillery targets that can be timed to arrive mid scenario, amongst many, many others).
  8. Tell me about it.....My old Win7 PC's on 'life support' at the moment while I prevaricate over buying a new one, I can order pretty much whatever I fancy, but I don't want a new computer, I like this one.
  9. The experience level & other soft factors of both the spotter and the air asset/artillery battery appear to have the biggest influence.
  10. From the DPR, lousy music, cool home-brew MRL:
  11. @DougPhresh Did you spend any time alongside the Leopard C1A2s at all.....I have a burning question: Why do they put the inverted plastic bottle on the radio antenna?
  12. If you open a ticket with support, explaining your situation, they will restore your activations: https://battlefront.mojohelpdesk.com/ I'll let others advise you of the best install method, it's not my strong suit either, even after doing it so many times.
  13. I got a telling off for posting images from Belsen, a mess that my family were directly involved in clearing up.....So I don't take too kindly at all to seeing videos of fascist f**ks pontificating about what a jolly rotten time they had on the eastern front, getting a free pass.
  14. Is it always an explosion that triggers this or does small arms fire do it too? If it is only explosions, what side of the hedge are they actually taking place and do the units affected have LOS to the gun (or whatever caused the explosion)? Could they be fleeing an unknown and unexpected explosion in their vicinity by what they perceive as the most direct route? Just a thought.
  15. Cheers for posting those and also for testing the scenario. I could use one more victim volunteer to test it.....You would need to have all the modules and be prepared to install a whopping mod (taking all your others out first is highly recommended).
  16. I'm waiting to see that ZSU open up with the Area Target order that I believe Bil may be hinting at: That could get messy!
  17. Pretty good précis of the argument on the subject here: https://wikispooks.com/wiki/South_Front You can often find decent imagery of the Syrian & Yemen conflicts here: https://www.almasdarnews.com/ How much faith you put in the reporting is entirely up to you. Looks like the Republican Guard ran short on Kontakt-1 modules before they came up with the 'Shafrah'.
  18. Who mentioned the third world? I was referring to those delightful 'Gulf Monarchies'. https://www.hrw.org/world-report/2019/country-chapters/bahrain https://www.hrw.org/world-report/2019/country-chapters/oman https://www.hrw.org/world-report/2019/country-chapters/saudi-arabia https://www.hrw.org/world-report/2019/country-chapters/united-arab-emirates
