    Steam players for multiplayer

    What I'm secretly worried about is the passage of time. Steve and Charles are heading toward the end zone at some point (not a dig, we all pay the Reaper). But then what will happen to "CM:BS 3 - March On Washington"?!?

    Urban Combat Training Article

    It's incredible that it made it through as a concept. So utterly different. I wonder has its nature and capabilities encouraged new tactics?

    Russian Near/Abroad policy

    Strange, it isn't for me and I'm. Not a subscriber. In Chrome, go to Settings,, Privacy, Clear Browsing Data (include cookies in the list) . Let it work then refresh. Should be fine. I imagine there's similar for safari.

    Beat me!

    Except you'd end up with 17 sniper platoons, a SAM company and 12 supply trucks...

    There's large maps in all the CMX2 series, I believe. Its a function of the Editor, which can reasonably handle up to, I think 5km x 5 km. Not sure exactly, but large enough. The scenarios in CMBS are, I believe, oriented to longer ranges than the WW2 series (s/o smarter then me can confirm y/n). Personally, I find the difference is in lethality - in CMBS being seen pretty much means being killed. This makes the battles far more merciless of lazy commanders. Like me .
  9. Interesting retrospective on the 2008 Russo-Georgian War by WOTR. https://warontherocks.com/2018/09/russian-performance-in-the-russo-georgian-war-revisited/ Posting here and in SF2 forum because it's a dual-use article. For SF2 it gives a greatsense of comparable RUS forces (I know they're not in that game), even just as background context. For BS it helps show just how far modern, 2018 RUS forces have come. It refs the CAST study, The Tanks of August, so it's decent for civilian analysis (I guess?).
  10. Woops double post. Please delete....

  13. I'm actually super curious about any western military analysis /observations of that Turkish operation. Wait a success? Bog down and stalemates? Petered out?
  14. I've updated the general Combat Mission page to include a section on SF2 (scroll to the bottom). Feel free to correct if necessary. I'm editing on mobile so typos are wont to creep in. I'll create a separate SF2 main article page next. That will have the released screenshots etc.

    CM:SF2 Wikipedia section

    Agreed. The whole Wikipedia series should be updated/main articled, detailed and illustrated.

    IED Mechanics?

    Troops can find/mark mines IN CMBS (don't know about other games). Does this also apply to IEDs in SF2?

    5x5Km Radzy Full 2 Minicampaign

    Is it based off a real location?

  22. A follow-on would be fascinating - similar map,, stronger forces and Bil would have the natural foreknowledge of recon. Keep IanL's forces, as they are now and augment with reinforcing units steadily fed in, with increasing FS support on both sides. Pass the popcorn pls...
  23. You only fail if you give up. Still, Bils odds were very long, playing as Syrians....
