Fire!

Close to the end of the battle, one of mine T-90 finally spots (trough smoke) and eliminate that pesky Bulat that was ruining my day

Then i was able to close on objectives and win the battle, despite losing 2 tanks 1 apc and some troops

And the final result; i've managed to save 3 out of 4 trucks after an extra 5 min time...then i decided to concede ceasefire thinking that the mission was accomplished, but i was wrong

This is a great scenario; in this playtrhough i've focused on clearing the town ad the outskirts, i wanted to learn a bit of urban tactics, but the time it's not your friend and i had to rush, so i played the last turns too "RTS style"

Thanks for this @raven80 they are superb screenshots - they bring the scenario to life.

Glad you enjoyed the scenario. It started life out as wee test scenario during an early beta of CMBS to test map creating stuff. Nice to see it's settled into being a popular wee scenario. It's also one of my favourites. If you are interested another 'similar' one is "Morning Coffee" set in the same time frame and involves UKR and Russian troops.

Speaking of AA missiles.  IN the Russian campaign I find that the vehicular missiles were ineffective.  Every kill was to Iglas.  However, my guys ran out of Iglas quite quickly.

Am wondering how do players manage their AA missile supply.  It seems to make sense in RL to put every guy with an Igla out there ready to shoot. 

Or perhaps the mission simply doesn't provide enuff Iglas or missiles?  You'd think that Iglas would be plentiful.

For goodness sake, this a screenshot topic. Go and start a new topic with those sorts questions.

While waiting for the New Year hubbub to die down and for my buddy to get me his turn, I tried making a video!  (Spoilers to Ambush if you haven't played it already)

I've got the introduction and the first 5 minutes.  I can say making videos is a lot more work than the text AARs - so let me know if you think it's worth my time! B)

Oh, and happy new year to everyone!

I thought this was excellent. I liked the opening view and narrative, which I thought was very effective at setting the scene.Likewise, the footage and editing have been very well done. I look forward to the next instalment. Happy New year!

 +1  Very well done.  Especially considering that I think this was one of your first video AARs (Maybe THE first?).  I really liked the view as if we were driving down the road at one point.  Another time we seemed to be standing alongside the road as the convoy drove past. Almost like a war correspondent might report with the vehicles moving in the background.  I think one of your truck drivers might be drunk judging by the way he couldn't stay on the road.  Might want to check on that guy:lol:.  I hope you have the time and patience to make more.  And of course you'll get even better with time and practice.    

HAPPY New Year!!

Thanks, George!  I mostly just read your briefing with some omissions and word edits to get it to make more sense when I read it out loud in this context haha!

Yup! :D

Learned some more effects in Lightworks.  And found a better location to record - less echos and more consistent.  Still probably need a better microphone.  My fiancee heard me reviewing the video and told me "that doesn't sound anything like you!"

I love them, these styles of AAR are exactly what made me buy my first CM in the first place. Then I found that there were tons of guys doing these like Josey Wales and Hapless.

Soldiers pull security while another tends to a fallen comrade injured during a brief altercation with the enemy.

As seen during the first mission of the excellent TF Spartan Resolve campaign

One of if not my favorite CMBS scenario.

I reworked one famous saying (Real Easter Egg for you guys) to fit this picture:
"Those ruskies were entering this war thinking that they will arty their enemies, while thinking that nobody will arty them back..."

This was an awesome moment. In a recent loss to @slysniper things were not going smoothly for me. My T64s were dying fast vs his T90s and my units were withdrawing as fast as they could. At this point I figured I was done for and would not even last out the full clock. His forces had just cleared the tree line and were now exposed to my Skif teams (I had several, four I think) that were waiting for just that moment. The first one fired and missed and died shortly after. My heart sank. But then the next two turns other ATGM teams took out four T90s. In that moment the attack momentum faltered and I ran down the clock still holding on to one of the objectives. I still lost - big but it was not a total route and I lasted the time on the clock. This is one of those kills. The most interesting because...

Lucky, this team gets to live to fire again

Looks a little low

It is low but still finds home

How low was it? Really low...
