  1. Is it not true that the Soviet arms industry usually cranks out poorly put together weapons of war. The idea being that it's going out to fight and get smoked at some point, so make'm cheap make'm durable and let's roll.. Forward for our Motherland.
  2. So I've been a little late on this post and anything re CMRT is welcome. But for me once again late war battles that are depicted in the book "SPEARHEAD" which features M-26 Pershing, which I can't get enough of, maybe because of the gritty film of the Cologne tank duel. In the book the battles continued with the M-26 in the lead most of the time while the ubiquitous M-4's get smoked again and again. I know that the M-26 was too little too late, but I still think that it made it's mark in the war. Yeah what if we started Normandy with M-26 replacing the M-4. I guess we can what if this because we can. But what if...Oh man what if.
  3. Hey there,

    I downloaded your recent ScAnCaDe and for whatever reason I can't get it to work.  I've used it before without any problems, but for now it will not work.  I followed the instructions but no go.  Any ideas?

  4. So the 105 mm round does not get the job done. The 30 mm round will. Does the NATO forces use 5.56 or 7.62. It goes all the way back to the MBT-70 disaster when we tried to work with Germany. We went with the 105 mm then went to the 120 mm which in the end was a good choice, but has the MGS even seen any combat? I don't recall.
  5. Here is another video without that annoying music. I think is one is rather cool https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZkeHlqXV_Y
  6. Time to upgrade may be...just saying.
  7. So can we expect something like the battle of Berlin and fight for the Reichstag. Also between June and September 1944, the Wehrmacht had lost more than a million men, and it lacked the fuel and armaments needed to operate effectively. The Supreme Commander [Western] Allied Expeditionary Force, General Eisenhower lost interest in the race to Berlin and saw no further need to suffer casualties by attacking a city that would be in the Soviet sphere of influence after the war,[ envisioning excessive friendly fire if both armies attempted to occupy the city at once. Smart move on Eisenhower's part. The USA would have likely suffered accordingly. These big self propelled guns look like they weigh quite a bit. Big boom...203 mm.
  8. I ran that program and placed the files into the folder. It unpacked the NATO files but not the other american files. The screen flashed and I got an error report which is displayed below. In file: C:\Users\Miste\Desktop\Shock Force 22\Semper Fi Syria.cam Invalid number read: Attempted to parse core units size The application attempted to read a number value in the current campaign file was significantly larger than what could be be considered sensible. Heuristic for maximum value: 100000000 Read value: 2164227200 Something probably went wrong with parsing the specific file format and the cursor was not positioned correctly. Alternatively, the heuristic may not have been set conservatively enough and should be increased.

  9. Was trying to break down my campaigns into scenarios and it would not work..Does anyone know why or how...
  10. Yes as far as I remember in the Challenger incident it was rather cold on pad when they launched and the "o-ring" failed. A very sad and tragic "accident" ensued. I will as many of us who were around back then will forever remember watching in horror. We will forever remember where we were, what we were doing at that time.
  11. Again making the comparison to NASA...I would add that if 99% is good enough then I would be more than a little worried about that sticky little 1%... Morton-Thickol's o-ring issue on the ill fated Challenger disaster as one example. Although this comparison may not be fair given the different issues involved. 1% failure on a large rocket motor vs the wrong solider crewing a certain vehicle, or whatever.
