  1. That's pretty obvious, at least to me. It's not some teenager YT channel.
  2. My number one wish is to have working and realistic pathfinding routines or at least being able to give "follow the road" order to a group of vehicles. In my current game I've received a company size tank reinforcements. Now I have to give a detailed movement orders to every single vehicle, just to make sure that they arrive ok to the frontline. It's completely mundane, boring and unproductive task. It often makes me quit the scenario that I was excited about, because I feel that I'm better off reading a book or watching a series than repeating over and over this exercise.
  3. A Russian politician wants to prosecute a German journalist, who questions the Russian interpretation of the Prokhrovka Battle. https://www.urdupoint.com/en/world/germany-should-prosecute-author-of-article-ab-666246.html?fbclid=IwAR1MZP-SbPnOnaPLmHq-dvO4jl8vOLo_fyldaztfw7QePilocXI9K3nwunw Here the original article in German: https://www.welt.de/geschichte/zweiter-weltkrieg/article196544633/Rote-Armee-1943-Fotos-beweisen-Kamikaze-Angriff-russischer-Panzer.html?fbclid=IwAR2SKBOGp_KyNbBpoqSBTKh9xyy9H2LH_fuDAaAy8snOptgXT6OZuUhOLO8 A newly found image taken at the Prokhorovka battlefiled:
  4. It would make a complete sense, for example to maintain the credible deniability. Those "freedom fighters" imported from Russia knew too much and after the main hostilities ended, they become superfluous. I really doubt that the Ukrainians had capabilities, that would allow them to take down the separatists leaders - this would be the less likely probability for me. It could be Russia, but most likely they were killed in mafia style score settings, since in the post war reality, they effectively become the ring leaders of criminal organisations. Remember Arkan from the Bosnian War? He was also a warlord and a war criminal and was killed either by other criminals or by his former paymasters.
  5. I'm reading a book about the Aegean campaign of 1943. Who knew that in late 1943 the Germans conducted successful airborne operation and defeated the British thanks to... the air superiority... https://www.amazon.co.uk/Churchills-Folly-Cassell-Military-Paperbacks/dp/0304366552 I'm posting it here to encourage the modders to look at this campaign. It would fit perfectly into the CMFI scope.
  6. Yep, me too. Let's hope that finally it will be more than 8.
  7. Is that the case? That's 50% less content than GL module.
  8. Take care Chris. Let me know when you're ready. I hope you'll recover soon.
  9. I just go myself an ebook for free. Can you believe that?! Thank you Sir!
  10. Creating 3D models is probably one of the most expensive parts of making a computer game. So given the Battlefront's limited resources, hoping that they will invest their time and $ in some secondary units, is a pipe dream.
  11. Apart from Germans, there's 30mm cannon on Spanish Pizarro APC and Polish Rosomak. US Army was pretty impressed with the performance of Rosomaks in Afghanistan.
  12. They are thinking of 50mm. So here it is - finally the new APC will have the gun caliber of Panzer III. I respect that 👌 https://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/the-u-s-armys-m2-bradley-replacement-has-a-big-gun-pro-1829796672
  13. Great, thanks for the update. As you were working on stuff, the Syrian tactical map in the scenario UK Outmanoeuvred, shows British arty and air assets instead of Syrian:
  14. OK, thanks. So basically, what still needs to be done, are the British, Canadian and Dutch campaigns?
  15. Will the stand alone scenarios from the NATO module be updated too?
  16. Yes, but the Arabs hold the trademark and everybody thinks it was them. Just like Edison and the bulb.
  17. For me the best thing about his channel is, that he often bases his research on the German sources, that are normally not available for the English speaking crowd.
  18. You could start with the ungrateful colonials from over the pond. But I'm afraid if we go down that way, the Arabs may start charging everybody for the use of their numerals.
  19. 17 shoots to kill a Stalin tank. This is consistent with my experience from this game.
  20. English is a modern day Latin. Everybody from Estonia to Portugal speaks English nowadays. It's not XIX century for people to communicate in French
