  1. I initially wasn't going to purchase RTV because I didn't think the time period was that interesting, but from the amount of work that's apparently gone into this I think ill play it anyway. A lot of that stuff probably isn't necessary, but it does show passion and care on BFC's part for units that don't get mentioned at all in history (unfortunately) and that granularity is why I bought CM in the first place. Hopefully BFC has learned some lessons from it and we can go back to a more "normal" schedule after this release!
  2. Just keep telling yourself the game will be out tomorrow and eventually it will be true 😀 Maybe today
  3. JTAC's are usually embedded with army units so its just a matter of that being the TOE. Plus they can be used to call in artillery and drones, so its not like those guys don't have a job when there isn't any air support available.
  4. I don't check this thread for a day or two and all the sudden were posting about anime and Girls Und Panzer. Everyone feeling ok? Does this mean BF is working on a Girls Und Panzer expansion?
  5. Awesome! I love seeing CMANO being used in concert with CM.
  6. I think you may be in the wrong forum, but I'm also probably the only person on this forum that can answer this question I'm reading Hyouka right now, the Anime was great and I needed more!
  7. True enough, these usually don't go anywhere for better and worse. I didn't mean to imply you were a Nazi fanboy, just that you are using some of the arguments I see everywhere.
  8. I'm not a fan of a lot of things my country has done, especially in recent times so that means nothing to me. Nice whataboutism though, you're checking a lot of boxes! Now where were we? Oh right we were talking about the murderous Nazis that made up the majority of the Wehrmacht and the SS!
  9. So your argument is basically "They weren't all bad so you can't generalize by saying the Wehrmacht or SS". What kind of logic is that? Its safe to assume these organizations who were led by Nazis were mostly indoctrinated and carried out mass genocide. Theirs literally no point in pointing out poor Hans who just wanted to defend Germany. That doesn't change anything and its just a way for apologists or Nazi fans to get away with praising Nazi Germany. I understand that many of those institutions broke down and accepted a wide variety of men from different walks of life towards the very end, but that doesn't change the facts of the war. There is nuance there but it doesn't protect them from being "generalized".
  10. What the hell does that even mean? Men fought under these institutions and murdered people. I'm honestly shocked to find such a blatant example of denial on this forum...
  11. I can't find a good source for what units exactly have them, but what I can say is that my friend in the Army received them (ENVG 1/2 which has the thermal/NVG fusion technology) during training about two years ago and that his unit actively rotates through Europe. As for numbers I only have a wikipedia link that has multiple sources cited at the bottom, apparently about 25,000 ENVG 2 and 1 sets have been bought by the US army since 2003. The ENVG 3 will start rolling out this year and the army plans to buy 45,000 of them in total. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AN/PSQ-20 https://www.army.mil/article/219674/army_to_field_new_night_vision_goggles I know that's not ideal but its all I got. I think its fair to say that active units that are the most likely to see combat will be sufficiently equipped with these.
  12. I meant every soldier in-game, but yes you are definitely right in that these are only deployed in large numbers to active units in Europe for example.
  13. The American night-vision optics are a blend of NVG and thermal imaging so yes they are absolutely superior to the Russians NVG's. Keep in mind that EVERY US soldier has this optic as well so that is a huge force multiplier when fighting at night. As for vehicle optics I think steel beasts shows how advanced targeting/commander optics are on vehicles like the M1A2 SEP. As for Russian artillery delays I agree that they are a little to long compared to the Americans.
