    is it planned to let infantry ride tanks?

    speaking as a former infanteer, I'm all over any sort of vehicle I can throw all of my heavy **** into. My back loves LAV's

    Indeed. If you're expecting contact of any kind your troops should be dismounted. It may seem crazy but your troops actually have a better chance of survival dismounted in a field than in the back of a vehicle or god forbid ontop of a tank. The only time I can see myself wanting to use a leo for transport would be if I'm trying to casevac a critically wounded casualty and I cant drag/carry him out of there. A lot of things since ww2 have changed. The way things were back then was very "from-the-hip" or ad-hoc. Most weapon systems were brand new and cutting edge technology for their nations at the time. Outside the Russian way of thinking, troops were only hitching rides on tanks as part of maneuvers, and dismounting prior to their lines of departure, especially since there may not be enough vehicles for all the infantry (combat losses, breakdowns, other shortages) The intensity levels of the wars being fought now don't really require Cpl Bloggins to hop on the side of a leo to the frontline.

    60mm Mortars Canada

    Weird. We got rid of the 60's by the time I got to battalion, But I can tell you that at the time they were definitely not treated as adhoc as it appears to be in this. 60's were part of the infantry, even the 81's were until we gave them up to the artillery and they took our .50 cals and gave us an automatic grenade launcher I never saw, let alone used, my entire military career. Short of it? We need some extra rounds in the vehicles. 18 60mm mortars per platoon is barely enough to harrass a machinegun.

    The on map 60's for the mech infantry battalion seem great but their vehicles don't appear to carry any extra ammunition, and I can't seem to find any vehicle carrying it in the QB selection

    British,German,Canadian,Dutch trucks.

    I used to shoot at PLQ dummies on patrol in drive-by's in the ol' milcots haha Those silverados are absolute trash. Pretty much every vehicle we have is garbage except the leos and LAV's. Some folks seemed to love the bison and cougar but I never operated with them. Says a lot about us when we take the absolute dumpster fire the government leaves us with, and the magic we work with in in theatre. Meanwhile on exercise nothing works and everyone is miserable.

    What are the holes in the sword for? Please tell me they set that thing on freaking fire EDIT: I just did some cursory research on the statue. Apparently they cut holes in it because the wind was causing structural damage. I preferred my ignorance, believing the Soviets built a giant warrior woman with a freaking flaming sword

    CMSF2 Release Update

    My thoughts and sentiments exactly. If the AI or enemy player took the fort and the scenario required them to hold it for a certain amount of time, then I guess such a strategy would be pretty fair, but without that, it seems quite gamey. At that rate you might as well save and ceasefire to see enemy positions.

    Steve I'll give you my undying love, admiration, and devotion if you guys release the Canadian Campaign after the Marines

    LOL I doubt it, the ML is a piece of crap and isn't kept for use inside a combat zone. You might see an MS... But I can't remember when we started bringing them in. That's a little bit before my time
  13. 10/10 Thanks tomato, Sajjan will now be the architect of all my future Canadian Operations in CM, all the way back to Normandy
  14. I had hoped this thread would satiate my itch for cmsf2 but sadly it's only made it worse... much worse...

    new windows 10 rig. game wont start

    New computer. I posted a ticket. Apparently I need to reset my license. But I can't even get that done because literally nothing will run. I think my anti virus might have something to do with it but I can't shut down Norton completely
