  1. Each Army (a NATO corps) (and strictly speaking of Europe not Afghanistan) had 1 regiment of attack aviation and I think the next higher level did as well. Committing an entire regiment to one local attack seems quite fanciful.
  2. I did quite well by moving a platoon of BTRs past the tree line on the right flank, suppressing and reducing the buildings then clearing it out with the infantry. I then moved the tanks up in box formation until one gets lased and pops smoke, I then moved off the road to the right and used the tree line as a bit of concealment got lased a few times which meant and automatic smoke screen. I was able to use this to get my tanks on line to flank the BMPs, and I made quick work of them, I moved up the BTR platoon that was still behind the walled compound to provide infantry support for the tanks then assaulted trough the built up area with the tanks hitting all of the objectives and clearing out the infantry. I never even used the BTR platoons on the left right road, I held them in reserve the whole time. Use your tanks as tanks use your BTRs only as local support for their infantry squads, if you try to use them as fighting vehicles you are going to have a bad day.
  3. "Obviously Russians won't bother with ROE" Nice...
  4. Not so understanding of dropbox, but I will play anything. yaroslav.romanov.1977@mail.ru is my email
  5. Tankist Serzhant Popova Oksana Oleksandrovna shows the decision to allow females into the Tank Troops was not a mistake. Otlichno Ksusha, Otlichno.
  6. I think it's a bad idea for more reasons than just that.. But that certainly is one possible reason.
  7. Honestly, despite all of the rhetoric coming from all sides and pleas for peace, there is an actual unwillingness to do anything besides play blame game. The results are a lot like Jugoslavia, talks about talks, harsh words, all the while people die. As for the back story, what is the situation throughout the world? Meaning how much can NATO, mainly the U.S. afford to commit to Ukraine? Is there still a campaign against ISIS? What of GWOT? Or is Ukraine war happening in a vacuum? I saw written USMC invasion near Odessa or in Crimea, how was the massive land based (in Russia proper) ASM threat dealt with for sending ships into Black Sea?
  8. I missed this post earlier, seems to me to be a quite fair assessment.
  9. Im Russian and live near the Baltic States, I am not driven nuts by this nor is anybody I know. I think this tends to be the Baltic perception more than reality.
  10. I would rather have an aesthetical abnormality than lose the ability to use a weapon system. :/
  11. Sigh. This was a good thread. Please don't let it get locked.
  12. So am I to understand the T-72B3 is molded so that the commander's machine gun is permanently locked in the travel position rendering it for the most part useless?
  13. I must say for a while Ты цель видишь? and Вижу ориентир, а цель не вижу! were idioms I used every day.
  14. As a side to Shasko's post, are what is being described as 'UnCon' really 'UnCon' ? I was under the impression this term meant ununiformed fighters fighting a guerrilla/insurgency campaign. The forces being described are uniformed militia fighting a fairly conventional war with lines and territory being taken and lost. In Shock Force there was a difference between Syrian Militia and UnCon. But as is true this game is not modeled after the real situation. I'm interested to read the 17 page document though!
  15. Yes, I have used it unsuccessfully against M1A2s in that same battle as their laser warning sensor alerted them and they displaced to outside of my LOS before the impact.
  16. I have no problem with BFCs scenario and enjoyed it vastly. I just see it claimed as an accurate prediction of the actual conflict in Syria by 3rd party writers a bit curious, that's all.
  17. This is not an attack at Battlefront, so please nobody take it as such. I keep reading how Battlefront 'accurately predicted war in Syria'. Other than there being a war in Syria I see very little in common with the backstory of the game and the actual war in Syria. Pages 10-12 in the section titled "A Developers Conundrum" seems to point to Syria being chosen partly for gaming reasons. Shock Force provided a great setting, though at some points I saw it as an Iraq war in Syrian skins, and I give great credit to not choosing a fictional OPFOR which was also mentioned as a possibility. I have read in more than one article including the headline posted earlier in this thread that war in Syria was predicted by Battlefront (I have not seen Steve say this himself , though I might have missed it) But to me, judging by the backstory of the scenario and the 2 pages discussing development of it - it seems to to be more of a coincidence that a civil war is occurring there than an accurate prediction of a NATO invasion of Syria following a state sponsored dirty bomb attack polluting major cities of the West for hundreds of years. If this has been brought up previously I'm sorry for beating a dead horse.
  18. I don't see that tone at all, and I do not require a translation.
  19. I have used it successfully to kill American mortar vehicles in a battle I forget the name of but the U.S. force is making a bridgehead and the Russian side is in a defense.
  20. I want to report that the same happened to me and my course of action was similar to Zipuli. While not game breaking the company materializing out of nowhere among my units who worked hard to get to that position was a bit frustrating. Edit: I also agree with his suggestion on a fix for it if it is deemed by developers in need of tweeking
  21. I know you are just making a joke, but for the record, the president of the Russian Federation doesn't have the authority to unilaterally change city names.
  22. Minsk is nothing like Moscow. I'm not understanding the Frunze non-connection. He wasn't just a "Russian General" he was leader of the Minsk people's militia and the first elected leader of Beylorussian Soviet. Having the unfortunate experience of spending a lot of time in both cities I can assure you that Minsk is in no way a mini Moscow. I'm not sure of a red square in Minsk, I know there is a Victory Square, but the main square of ancient Rus cities was often "red square" at the time the word meant beautiful not red. Pskov is one of the many Russian cities with a Kremlin and there are statues of Lenin everywhere, this does not make Pskov a mini Moscow.
  23. Game wise it is like the Baltic States, interesting in story and scenario design but rather uninteresting in equipment and structure. Would be interested in a Belyarussian naval module however.
  24. My first impression is from the first mission of the Russian campaign - I didn't start small , I have found that the terrain and the way the scenario designer deployed the enemy in it are satisfyingly challenging. An impression that is of no consequence and doesn't matter in the slightest is that in the cemeteries on the territory of an Orthodox Church only people of the Western Christian, Jewish, and Communist faiths are interned. I'm Not sure I can enjoy this game with this travesty (this was sarcasm, relax) Enjoying my experience thus far.
