  1. No worries, here's some more to keep you going and I'll probably leave it at that: Maps (although most of the Guardian ones are now dead) https://legacy.lib.utexas.edu/maps/libya-2011.html Progress of the conflict for the first few months: http://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.com/interactive/2011/02/25/world/middleeast/map-of-how-the-protests-unfolded-in-libya.html Uppsala Conflict Database: http://www.ucdp.uu.se/#/exploratory
  2. Daily NATO updates โ€“ some are pretty bland but others give locations (city name) of strikes. https://www.nato.int/cps/en/natolive/news_71994.htm Mapping the Libyan Conflict โ€“ fiddly interface but some good stuff https://www.yumpu.com/en/document/view/28217294/mapping-the-libyan-conflict-insct-syracuse-university RAND Study on Airpower https://www.rand.org/pubs/research_reports/RR676.html You might get scenarios out of these three: http://unosat-maps.web.cern.ch/unosat-maps/LY/CE20110220LBY/UNOSAT_LBY_CE2011_Zawiyah-8MAR11_REPORT_v2_HR.pdf http://unosat-maps.web.cern.ch/unosat-maps/LY/CE20110220LBY/UNOSAT_LBY_CE2011_AbuKammash-14MAR11Report_v1_HR.pdf http://unosat-maps.web.cern.ch/unosat-maps/LY/CE20110220LBY/UNOSAT_LBY_CE2011_AbuKammash-5MAR11Report_v1_HR.pdf

    Tank tactics: why the regression?

    He's busy adding 15 second pauses to RT play obviously ๐Ÿ˜‰
  4. What exactly are you looking for or what is your intent? For instance are you looking for stuff to make a scenario/campaign out of or is this for study purposes or are you looking for general backgrounders to broaden your knowledge. I've always found in my career that the best place to start in any form of research is to ask yourself the question 'What exactly am I looking for?'

    Tank tactics: why the regression?

    Apart from ... Where's the patch? When's the CMFI module coming out? Where's the CMSF2 Demo? When will CMSF2 be released? Why doesn't Steve provide developer updates?

    IED Mechanics?

    +1 Yeah, damn bridges - I hate 'em.

    Could there be a CM Korea?

    You're still playing it though ๐Ÿ˜„

    Tank tactics: why the regression?

    Can we stop wielding the 'unrealistic stick' at the RT mode of play because pauses are allowed? Neither of the play modes are realistic yet I very infrequently see posts hitting WEGO with the 'unrealistic stick' for having three phase turns or the ability to endlessly replay turns from every angle, pausing the replay when a round strikes and then rewinding and pausing to follow the tracer back to the point of origin. It is a game not real combat.

    Mate you really need to read the manual - while people here will help, these kind of basic gameplay questions are going to get a bit irritating. Anyway here is your answer (from page 36 of the Engine 4 manual (my bold for emphasis)): 'Incapacitated soldiers (red soldier base) can be given first-aid by their comrades, which is called โ€œBuddy Aidโ€. There is no Command for this action, rather it happens automatically when a friendly soldier (regardless if he is from the same squad or not) is moved close to the location of an incapacitated comrade. Depending on the situation (incoming fire etc.) the soldier may decide to treat the wounded man. The word โ€œmedicโ€ is displayed in the status field. The player can abort the treatment at any time by giving the parent unit that the medic belongs to any kind of Command. The medic may decide to abort the treatment himself as well if there is significant incoming fire. Once treatment for a incapacitated soldier is complete, the wounded soldier will disappear from the Game Area.'

    CMSF2 Demo

    There has been nothing said to the contrary so I would assume that the discount will be enduring rather than short term.

    Agreed all above and as @Heirloom_Tomatoshowed in his post - the manual contains some useful information.

    Your Ramadi map is more realistic though mate ๐Ÿ˜‰

    CMSF 1 free

    What was that โ€ฆ 40% discount? I thought BF didn't run sales?
  14. Dotted icons and graphics are not new - most intelligence maps have dotted icons, boundaries and other graphics. As I was taught in 1985 dotted = assessed, solid = confirmed.

    MOUT and urban counterinsurgency (and CM)

    But this approach means your Battle of Ghazni scenario bears zero resemblance to the actual events.
