    Ukrainian Side is Seriously Underpowered

    I think if anything, CMBS greatly inflated the fighting ability of the Ukrainians.

    BMP-3M Disabling Own 30mm

    I can certainly try to repeat it. What happened was, BMP-3s engaged the enemy at nearly 2000m, well outside of any return fire. During the course of this engagement, about half of the BMPs suffered damaged only to their 30mm guns, without taking fire.
  3. I'm curious how Syrian web gear works. They obviously don't have MOLLE or ALICE gear?

    Stagler's Quick Battle Maps

    Checking in on this. Also... if any other master maps could be made into quick battles, I'd be stoked!
  5. I've just noticed on larger maps, when BMP-3s are really lobbing those 100mm rounds downrange, they are receiving "hits" that only disable their 30mm guns, and without taking return fire. I'm guessing at high elevations the vehicle is shooting itself. In my last battle on a huge map, with a full battalion, about 50% had damage only to their 30mm guns, and those were the vehicles that had engaged the most at long ranges.

    I think this is similar to questions about echelon elements like signals, engineers, medical, logistics. I always though CM engagements started after recce and maneuver, and ended before vehicles were recovered from the AO, fully supply was established, etc. As much as I would like a 50x50km area to operate in complete with little MPs directing traffic and cooks busy in the field kitchens, managing the forward elements of a battalion is already a big scale for the level of detail in the engine.
  7. I'm excited to see this play out. Bill has a good grasp of recce, it's a joy to see such good planning.

    How much do you roleplay?

    I don't want to get into this too much, but this happened while I was with Battlegroup in '08, https://www.macleans.ca/news/canada/capt-robert-semrau-dismissed-from-the-forces/ My $0.02 CAD is having 12th SS kill Canadian prisoners out of hand in CMBN doesn't improve gameplay or immersion. Similarly, I would like to be able to treat enemy casualties in accordance with the LOAC, but I don't think that there should be systems to enable war crimes.

    That's a warcrime, in case you weren't aware.

    Personally, I keep the OOB and tactics as close to the book as possible. I use formations that would be used for the mission and terrain and not the best use of points.
  11. I think this will be especially relevant in CMSF2 as arty might be the only way for the Syrians to dent certain coalition assets.

    A long delayed update

    Slitherine seems to be doing very well on Steam.

    The state of CMSF2

    It's being delayed so Steve can pour over my 1 TB of photos from battlegroup so the Canadians can be represented in excruciating detail, down the to mustaches. Was there ever a follow-up on the hint of a new engine update including rank, insignia and vehicle decals...
  14. I would really like to see Early War, but Afrika Korps would bridge the gap fantastically as CMFI already contains a fair bit of the required kit, and when the Afrika Korps is done, the Early War stuff would be right there too. It seems like the best economy of effort, from an outside perspective.

    The state of CMSF2

    Canada shut down the Air Defense Artillery at about the same time (shame, because ADATS in CM would be great!)
