    Can you recommend what I should buy?

    Welcome John! If you want WW2 close quarters experience then definitively go with CMBN, especially with the MG pack, as it cover a lot of urban fighting. Also, this game ( with all modules and 3.0 version) is the most complete of all and it is the one with the major quantity of units and equipment. I wouldnt recomend you CMRT if you are looking for small scenarios, as it has very open scenarios, with little cover apart from woods, and usually featuring lots of tanks. CMFI has some very interesting city scenarios but the majority are also open. CMFB is more or less similar to CMBN so I will second what Mikey said and recomend you CMFB if you are looking for some extra material for CMBN. And if you looking for modern CQB battles, CMBS would not dissapoint you either. My honest recomendation is that you try all the demos, especially the ones of the newer games, as they are updated to v3.0.and you will get a peak of what kind of scenarios you will have with the full game. Hope it has been of help

    I Have No Idea What to Buy

    As you alredy have CMBN, I will recommend you to get first the modules/DLC for that game and the 3.0 upgrade if you dont have it. They add a lot of new stuff and feature some new countries and a lot of very good made scenarios. If you prefer something new I personally prefer Fortress Italy, because while all the other games are set in 1944, this one is set in 1943 and it really gives a different feeling from the other games. Nevertheless this is my personal view. They all are very great games and all of them (WWII ones) are or can be upgraded to version 3.0, so I will recommend you to choose the one with the setting that fits you the most . Hope this has been of help
  3. Now that you say it, I dont remember any scenario that actually has them, neither the panther turret. Maybe they are exclusively in campaing scenarios and in quick battles. Nevertheless, you can go here :http://www.thefewgoodmen.com/tsd3/search-2/#search/category=CM+FORTRESS+ITALY+[SCENARIOS] and try to look for a scenario with Panthers.

    More small arms variety

    A very interesting read I agree with you with the need of adding more weapons to CMx2, it feels a bit uncomplete the amount of infantry weapons in the game (Still a good quantity IMO) Furthermore, if they keep going to the end of the war, weapons as the M2 Carbine and all the volkssturm ones (VK 1.5, VG1/2, MP3008...) are imperative. Maybe,with a bit of luck,we will get to see all these weapons in CM
  5. Hello, Semhustej. I had the same problem in the past. If you still had not being able of solving the problem, I recomend you to unistall the game. Then Install the game again, but not the 3.0 upgrade. Then see what is your current game version, that should be 1.12. In my case was an older one. If it is also your case, go to http://www.battlefront.com/index.php?option=com_versions&Itemid=317#CMFI and press Gustav Line folder. It should redirect you to the download. When you downloaded and installed the 1.12 upgrade, then install the 3.0 upgrade. It worked for me, so I hope it will help help you too

    Russian army under equipped?

    Hello all. Retaking the Armata topic, I thought that this video will interest you all

    Actually that vehicle is also in CM:BN
  8. Hmm, usually the guys that are with the machine gun are there just to keep the machine gun operational, so I guess that in a real life situation they will just stay behind the gun. To be honest, I find more weird the fact that the soldiers take actual fire positions than actually the abscense of shooting to enemys .
  9. Jeje, I never say no to a challenge
  10. Hello all. If you have read something about the battle of the Bulge you will know that the germans, for the initial phases of the battle tried to look like US soldiers for being able of advance further without making contact. Far that reason, US uniforms were given to german soldiers and some captured US vehicles (mainly some few Shermans and a bunch of M8 Greyhound) were given to the main line of advance still with US markings. Nevertheless, as they werent enough captured tanks (and a lot of them broke even before reaching the main line) the germans decided to modify some Panthers Ausf G to make them look like M10 Wolverines. They weren't too many of these, but it would be a cool addition
  11. Hmm, if I am not wrong, 105 Shermans were also used for indirect fire role missions, so it is posible that they had VT fuses too.
  12. Well, that one is the Stuart Recce , I think that he is referring to the Stuart Kangaroo, that doesnt have a .50 cal gun mounted, that it is also in the game, but only with the Vehicle Pack Module downloaded.
  13. Hmm I dont think thats the case. Even being true that actually the trops surrender quite often, I have seen units go from one part of the map to the other (Principally tank crew members after losing the tank, although I have seen it also with normal infantry units even in normal morale). Also, one of the reasons is that when the objectives are to close to the edges, routing units cannot move further, so they just lie to the groun until they are killed or they surrender, when in a more realistic situation they will keep running.
  14. Not a bad idea, but to be honest I think that a real panic unit, if it doesnt have any nearby commander, will try to get the most far away posible from the enemy,or like you said, surrender if the enemy is too close, so I dont know if a rally point will be realistic in these kind of situation. Nevertheless, maybe for a shaken unit (not broken or panic) will work, because they lost they nerve to still fighting in that position, but they havent still fully demoralized. I hope so
