    Except in hot seat mode the other player is right there in the room - or at least the next room...

    My bad, even if you save the game and then reload you cannot change the orders already given. So there is no way to cheat even in hot-seat mode.


    Edit.: You can just you have to save immediately before giving any orders. And then you can also delete the save file to clean up.

    What you have described here applies only for the Hot-Seat mode, not PBEM games. I really cannot understand why there is difference, but anyway. Obviously you can cheat this way in the hot-seat mode but not in PBEM.

    Here is a small sheet I made the explain the difference:

    Thanks - this is very useful.  However, have you noticed that JTACs and Russian equivalent will have different (longer) call in times when they are calling artillery?

    They are not included now, but I will add them later.

    Time to have drones on station and adjusting mission would be helpful too.

    Maybe I will make another table for the drones.

  4. So I spent a lot of time to put together an artillery table for Russia and the USA. Currently Ukraine is completely missing. My main motivation was that whenever I was putting together an ORBAT, I had no idea about artillery strike call in times and available ammunition. Now I can check and compare it very easily.

    I am sharing it with everybody in case also somebody else finds it useful.

    Please note there is a sheet for each nation, and everything was recorded with Elite difficulty settings and Regular experience levels (for both arty and spotters).

    Well you see those two comrades were drunk as all get out. As that team approached they could see they were passed out and so they let them be. After getting a few meters past the two comrades one of the drunks broke wind with such a rumble. Startled the team leader turned around and with his Thermal Night Vision spotted a large heat signature low to to the ground! Thinking he passed a dug in armored vehicle in the darkness, that had now pulled its camouflage and was trying to starting up, he fired the AT4 in the general direction of the sound contact. But alas, closer examination of the heat signature turned out to be a rapidly dissipating gaseous cloud on top of a rather large puddle of liquid where the livestock had relieved themselves earlier.



    LoL man, you nailed it.

  6. Just to share what I consider the epitome of this game, a typical wtf moment :D


    So I have a scout section moving up along the road. They almost kill a small enemy infantry unit other than two guys which are cowering on the ground. My first man just walks past beside them.



    And then the other guys walk past those two enemy infantry guys. Nobody takes a shot. Then they stop and on of my guys fires two! AT4 rounds into them, from a distance like 8 meters or so. 






  7. Hey guys

    Would be anybody interested in a Blue nation vs Blue nation match in CMSF2? I think the chances would be more equal than a game in CMBS as Russia vs USA or Ukraine vs Russia.

    Currently I don't own this game, but I would consider buying it if there was an interest in this.

    I can see that most people play Syria vs Syria, but I am not doing same nation vs same nation or asymmetric battle.

    The OIP was apparently an earlier generation Russian MRE. This is the latest. By latest, I mean 2017!  Maybe there's something wrong with me, but I found the OP far more interesting.

    Packaging is nicer but the content seems to be more or less the same.

    In CMSF II you'll be able to do MOUT vs Uncons, or armored battles with decent equipment on both sides.  You might be pleasantly surprised.

    I think you don't believe this yourself.

    Syrian army is even more poorly equipped and trained than the Ukranian. T-90s? Maybe a few. According to wikipedia around 40. And thousands of T-54, T-55, T-72s.


    Even if they have T-90, the rep cost would be crazy high because it is extremely rarely found on the battlefields. Didn't see no BMP-3, just 1s and 2s (which are not M).


    I don't understand what is a problem with a conflict of US vs USSR.
