    Really nice work!
  2. Greeting everyone !!! 🙂 After a brilliant victory of @JoMc67 against me (but his squads were a little rattled at the end too) in a third meeting engagement, we are starting our first QB still on CMBN. The setup is the following: I am the US player.

    Thanks guys. The problem is that I have no time left now. Any kind of fire support mission is taking me a 8 minutes delay before delivery... And, about my tank @Heirloom_Tomato, it is dismounted. There are three out of five guys who are still alive. I am not sure I will do anything with this tank once the three guys have stopped panicking...

    Oh I see, a newbie mistake. I have 60mm and 81mm mortars, all on map. So only two rounds of smoke per team, that is what I have observed in my first attempt... Snif. What do I do now for protecting my men?
  5. Never be complacent with a newbie. It is helping him to learn from his mistakes. I am learning a lot thanks to you Joe... And, did you already forget how you crushed me last time? 😅

    Dear readers, I have a problem. The smoke screen I was willing to do, before assaulting the main objective, is not working at all. How do you evaluate the number of smoking rounds available in one mortar team compared to the "normal" rounds?

    MINUTE 18 My halftrack continues some area fire to pin down the enemy. The 10,5cm shell of this turn is bad. Four teams impacted... Argh!!! 😡 Looks like our old friend, the armored car, is back. Meanwhile my mortar team is starting a fire mission to add more casualties to the guys in front of me in the woods. This time, my halftrack is able to spot the enemy car and starts firing. 🎅 I hope it will be neutralized now. 😃 A little zoom on my mortar team currently firing. I have a small team doing recon of the main objective. No shots at all. Where is the enemy?

    recon data from helicopter strikes

    Oups sorry, I have misread. I was also thinking of planes.

    recon data from helicopter strikes

    That is a good point for modern combat indeed @SlowMotion I am wondering about WW2 titles. Not sure any armies were able to achieve this kind of communication. But for CMBS and CMSF2, good idea.
  10. You know when, during a walk in the countryside, you look at the windows of one house and evaluate the best angle of attack to take it, looking at cover and concealment, and where to place the fire support team... AND You know when your wife rolls her eyes when you explain her your last turn...

    CMSF: Al Amarah

    This scenario is a lot of fun. I have played it a lot in CMSF1. There is a blue setup zone near the mosque that is very convenient to enter the city. But, I always thought it was a little gamey to use. In CMSF2, this setup zone was just removed... Excellent idea.

    MINUTE 17 @IanL yes it was exciting and now the calm after the storm... I continue some area fires on my left wing. My plan is now the following: I will advance on the left and destroy the remaining opposition in the woods, Then, I will move my guys toward the main objective in the center of the map.

    MINUTE 16 This turn was exciting. To avoid losing my halftrack, I have ordered it to advance a little while I am sending my tank into a search and destroy mission against this armored car. The armored car is indeed trying to destroy some of my men near the halftrack. But, the cavalry arrives... And the unthinkable happens. The Stug III is spotted surely also looking after the halftrack. Meanwhile, one of my squad in the woods on my right wing is firing with a bazooka against the armored car. I think that is what we call a near miss. 😕 Luckily for me, my Sherman has seen the Stug III and is aiming at it. Too late, the Stug III is firing... 😨 But, a micro second later, my Sherman also fires. The two shells are under the green arrow. Boom!!! Boom!!! Stalemate... The Stug III is out of order as well as my lonely Sherman... Exciting indeed 😅

    MINUTE 15 The halftrack starts an area fire on the suspected enemy position. 🤗 It reveals that some people are fleeing. 🎅 The German on my right wing are too far away to provide any kind of support. The 10,5cm round of the turn... No casualty this time. I really think this is one harass mission. And a little surprise, a recon armored car is showing up. And it looks like it is after my halftrack... 😨 Strangely enough, I am observing more suppressive fire than expected and I realize my tank is also after something. Ouch! One of my men was a little too exposed and is hit. Ah and a smoke potting round, my assault is near.
  15. Hey nice advice @Combatintman, I will try this.

    This is strange then because the rounds are failing on my left, then on my right and coming back to left. That is why I am thinking more of a harass mission.

    MINUTE 14 Crossing the road again to reach the house on the left of the screen. This time I am using a Fast command. And, suddenly, one 10,5cm shell drops. Three casualties but the one in the red circle is a little hard to believe. I have replayed the sequence but this is indeed the shrapnel. 😕 In the wood on my left wing, my men are watching while my halftrack is arriving. Hope it will surprise a little the Germans next turn.

    MINUTE 13 A waiting and peaceful turn except few events. The 10,5cm firing rate is about one shell a turn. Question for the experts, at this rate, how long the battery could last? My halftrack is moving full ahead towards its destiny... I open up my tank in order to spot something... a tank may be? Where is his Stug III? This is the question I have since a long time...

    MINUTE 12 On the left wing, I emerge from the woods. The main objective seems calm. Still 10,5 cm around... Is counter battery fire possible to stop those guys !? My smoke screen firing mission is still been planned. 6 minutes to wait before main assault depending on its shape... On the right, strangely enough, even if the commander is hit, the fire mission seems not compromised !? I would like to bring some attention to the rear. Since the beginning, 5th Squad / B Team is providing medical assistance to all the guys that were hit by the Stug III at the beginning. Thanks guys, this is important to keep the casualties low. This is time to move my halftrack to wake up the Germans...

    MINUTE 11 I am waiting for my smoke screen. But, on my right wing, I am taking some fire from the German in the woods in front of my right wing. The company commander is hit !!! The company commander is hit !!! The mortar fire that I have ordered is now compromised...
  21. ncc1701e

    New DAR: ncc1701e vs JoMc67

    MINUTE 10 My plan will be straight forward: I have ordered a smoke screen in the center to cover the advance of my troops in the center and in the right on the main objective in the middle of the map. 8 minutes to wait. I will put whatever fire power I have on the left to destroy the enemy here. I will then move my left wing toward the middle objective. Meanwhile, 10,5 cm continues to rain. Sometimes nowhere, sometimes... 😡 I see the German guys falling back. The suppressive fire has ceased in the left woods at last. I carefully resume my progression in the left woods. The overall situation at the end of the turn.

    Agree, I will detail my plan soon for end game. As usual, I will be short on time. But, I prefer to be short on time than short on men. I am perhaps too cautious but I like my pixeltroopers.

    Hey great, Joe has confirmed, this is indeed 10,5 cm.

    MINUTE 9 Just for you @RockinHarry, a zoom of the crater size... 🙂 Alas, another incoming shell is this time doing much more damage. It remember me that indirect fire was one of the first cause of death during WW2. More on the left in this woods, suppressive fire continues and still no clue of who is firing. No casualties taken. I am moving my tank carefully to a location in reserve slope where I hope it will catch something. The overall situation is not improving. Am I too cautious as a commander guys? 😕
