  1. I've seen blogs and videos and have come to the conclusion, that amidst the usual jockeying for position up there (building roads, airfields etc), some individual commanders went rogue and settled personal scores. It is not unusual for Indian and Chinese soldiers to engage in a little hand-to-hand combat from time to time on patrol, this time it was unusually deadly. The border is not well-defined or agreed upon, so this is bound to happen. The tone of most experts I've read/watched is that this isn't too much to worry about. e.g. Indian side is used to patrolling up to this particular rock and consider it ours. Turns out the Chinese think the rock is theirs. If opposing patrols ever happen to be at that rock at the same time its bound to lead to some confusion to put it lightly
  2. I used an HMG carrier to transport a company heavy machine gun detachment, and when they dismounted they appear to have taken the HMG carriers Vickers along with them. Leaving this poor chap a little non-plussed.
  3. I'm especially quick on the trigger if there are Brits or Indians involved, but I've found with BFC content that even if it's a side I may not think I will enjoy playing (Soviet Russia for example), 30 minutes into the campaign I'm completely immersed in the struggle for my adopted motherland/fatherland.
  4. Hi, came to say the same. It's a dream come true to have Indian troops to play with. It sounds like this was a lot of hard work on the part of BFC so thank you, thank you!
  5. The things you are suggesting aren't really needed within the time frame of most CM missions. Also, a hypothetical mission which supported these features wouldn't necessarily be more fun to play in my humble opinion. The British army has a medical procedures guide that you can carry with you. Basically says you shouldn't attempt to do anything if you, or the area containing the casualty is under fire. That covers most CM situations, and even when there's enough peace and quiet to do some triage etc.. I think the way it's abstracted in the game is fine already.
  6. I'm glad these are getting re-worked. Waiting on the Brits!
  7. Hindi and Urdu are similar enough to pass for each other in game. While trying to figure out which language would have had the most speakers amongst Indian Divisions in Italy I couldn't find anything more useful than this in the official history: 'As an illustration, their Army newspapers now appeared in eleven languages, instead of two as in peace time. Even the impassive Gurkhas had their Gurkhali news sheet, which they read with avidity. '
  8. Urdu (possibly Hindi) would be the most logical choice.
  9. Off topic, but if you ever get a chance read 'Skinner of Skinner's Horse' , the memoir of James Skinner (1778 – 1841). Well worth it.
  10. They are in CMFI too. Love that canister shot.
  11. Pre-ordered and replaying all the content released so far while I wait, and there's still three campaigns I've barely touched. Has anyone done them all?
  12. Placed my order. This has been a must buy for me as soon as it was announced. I can't resist any CM content featuring Commonwealth forces. For the hours I will put into this, $35 is very reasonable.. especially as the Indian rupee is stronger against the dollar these days. I'm still a few games behind (haven't got FB or Black Sea) so the pace of the releases doesn't bother me. Has anyone actually finished every campaign and battle that had been released so far?
