  2. "Using the recently developed Battle of Stalingrad Virtual Staff Ride, Army University Press developed a multimedia historical documentary of the battle through the lens of current doctrine." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1K0SFr2gPbc Excellent detail with computer graphics. Published July 2018. 53 minutes in length. Kevin

    As much as we old school wargamers would crave Barbarossa, it's probably out of our reach in any future rendition of the CM franchise. The same is true for the Pacific or France 1940. BFC designs products based on their personal interest and passion for the subject. Certain subjects are not in their wheelhouse. I would be surprised if the idea a editor pack for CM2 Barbarossa goes far since development costs would be high for what would be (with or without content) a niche product. Kevin

    Company Leader Site

    There is also a nice link that opens up a 70 page PDF of Armor Magazine's tactical vignettes. It can be downloaded and or printed if one wanted to. Kevin

    Update on Engine 4 patches

    oy vey. We would all be interested in the last time you played a Combat Mission battle. What did you think? Did you have fun? We all have fun with CM. We enjoy the best that any wargame can offer. But no. You have to be miserable in each and every post. As if Steve and Charles care about your negativity after so many years. Please take your misery and self-righteous attitude elsewhere. Your contributions are not productive. You come across as an old guy drowning away their wasted life in a gin mill dreaming they were actually good at wargames and had friends. Kevin

    Quick Battle?

    "The base game of Red Thunder covers Operation Bagration from June to September 1944. Future expansions (modules and packs) will expand Red Thunder to include additional forces and equipment, and extend the timeline all the way to the Battle of Berlin in 1945. " This is from page 3 of the user manual. This is from the web site. "Combat Mission Red Thunder (CMRT) portrays the final year of the war on the Eastern Front, from the start of Operation Bagration in June 1944 through to the fall of Berlin 1945. The initial release covers the summer time period with future releases expanding the timeframe and forces." 1942 is not available. Kevin
  12. While we are at it, does someone also have a recipe for leftover asparagus perhaps with eggs for brunch in the morning?
  13. Maybe Trump is elected in 2008 and decides to withdraw from Syria early since “the job is 99% done”. But it’s really not. General Mattis (leading the fight in Syria) is sacked due to his protests. The new general handpicked by Trump is incompetent. So give the US horrible soft factors in the editor. The campaign is a series of retrograde scenarios with exit objectives (to the rear) with the Red force attacking from all sides as the 42nd Marines Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion retreats. The unit was first in and now last out. (Hey, catchy name for the project: "First In Last Out".) Sprinkle in some Russian collusion in the form of special forces and little green men and voilà. Perhaps one branch can have the President forced to resign due to his treasonous collusion and a much better general is immediately put in command and they conduct a campaign saving counterattack. I would not bring up climate change since it's too controversial. That’s as best as I can come up with. If we were closer to April 1, I’d think we were getting spoofed. Kevin

    Tall hedge for CMRT

    The Wargamer site is notorious for recycling previous content. We get by far more original thinking here on a day by day basis than on any site I can think of.
  15. Backstories, novels, and politics are not what CMSF2 is about. This revised game is about wrecking things around a battlefield from 10 years ago.. CM players were dying for explosive modern combat. Now they have it. Period. Let's not get side tracked. The campaign proposed in this thread will never be designed, playtested , nor released. Not that the idea was all that bad. But few people have the time and inclination to finish a campaign design. Battlefront gave us the tools, but they "forgot" to give us the time needed. This thread was merely to give solid advice to the original poster. Let's take miscellaneous campaign ideas to the general discussion forum. Kevint
