  2. I think this is really the key point of the whole thing. Both Hitler and Stalin knew that they were going to have to fight each other eventually. While "allies," the Soviets showed Hitler some of their new factories to scare him into staying "friends." It had the opposite effect. Hitler decided that the time to strike was before the Soviets could finish their buildup and recover from the loss of leadership due to Stalin's purges. Given the preceding German successes, their estimation of Soviet strength (WAY low) and the entire history of human warfare, Hitler's decision is quite understandable

  3. Roadblocks are still used today in order to slow the enemy on different levels. On the lowest level you can use a roadblock to slow down the enemy so you can hit him. Say for example you only got light AT-weapons and need to fire on a road. hitting a vehicle moving 40-50km/h on 100-200m distance take some skills, and with heart racing, combat around etc it becomes even harder. Putting up a road block behind a bend or whatever either halts the enemy or slows them down to make the shots easier. You talk about moving the obstacles really quickly. well it might look that way, but dig dow

  4. Here is a link to some preliminary screenshots of a work in progress. Red Dragon is a campaign depicting a North Korean blitzkrieg into South Korea in autumn of 2018. I have modded nearly every building in CMBS to what hopefully will give an Asian feel. Terrain, uniforms,vehicles have also been modded. This is my first attempt at modding so it may not appeal to some. I have done a huge amount of research into this to make the conflicting sides as accurate as possible. However obvious limitations in the BS game engine will limit this. I have even modded some of the Russian voice files to K

  5. My 'decisions win wars' comment was a little tongue in cheek (as denoted by the smiley), although with a touch of seriousness. The problem I perceive in TIKs movies is mainly in reasoning. I'm a bit of allergic to his type of reasoning, because I see it a lot these days. In my opinion his videos are compromised with root cause attribution errors. I will try to explain why: The most easy way of going about this, is by reversing the statement or removing the factor from the equation: So, would having 'enough' oil have won the war for Germany? The answer to this is not obvious yes (poss

  7. Not sure whether this would count as being an relevant one for this thread, but would wish for the quick battles purchase screen to more closely match the scenario editor purchase screen, for most part because saddens me an bit that in the quick battles purchase screen (for CMBN) some formations are not available (for example Machinegun Battalion and Parachute Battalion for the British Army) and some cannot be purchased with their transport (for example Air Landing Battalion and Antitank Battery [independent] for the British Army). But also as I think in quick battles would be good/interesting

  10. Here's a link to what the situation was in Alexandria and Cairo. It's on the third page of chapter 8 in Mitcham's Rommel's Desert War. Would post the paragraph, but Google Books doesn't allow that.And I wasn't taking a shot at anyone's ancestors, merely reporting what I'd read. Had forgotten the Fitness setting altogher, too. Doh! https://books.google.com/books?id=d4pEEm7OQJMC&pg=PT150&lpg=PT150&dq=british+panic+in+alexandria,+rommel&source=bl&ots=jtR1BRd-HW&sig=BFY-ZgopfJSN2H9h8pXbVO-kD-A&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjjmbKEttPZAhVHgK0KHfu4D9EQ6AEIJzAA#v=onepa

  11. CMBS: Hybrid Forces Mod BTR-80-1V152 This is an important addition to my Hybrid Forces mod – Command-Observation vehicle what will take a leading role in Hybrid Forces BTG commanding. It being usually used for arty strikes correction, cooperation with units on the ground, frontline observation etc. Those things are important instruments when it comes to commanding and providing information for hybrid forces battalion tactical groups.

  12. John, I'm not sure of your sources. But I fail to see how Cairo could be like a "ghost town", when the docks were full of ships bringing in supplies, and the brothels were doing a roaring trade. I suspect that that may have been a bit of wishful thinking on the part of the Germans. As for the "full-blown panic" in Alex, that sounds pretty much the same as what happened in Brussels and Ghent in June 1815, just because the toffs are in a tizzy, it doesn't mean the boys in the front line are. My granddad and his mates didn't run away in the summer of '42. They kept the supplies flowing to t

  13. Let me correct that for you: "March [sic] and still nothing [sic] happend [sic]...that the outer boards have seen." I'd like to tell you about the good times and partying that the beta testers have been having! I'd like to...but I can't. We've been keeping the latest iteration to ourselves. We've set up a secret cabal with the sole purpose of misdirecting Steve. He keeps asking, "Guys, is it working or is it broken?" We giggle and laugh, cut our eyes at one another, then select someone (usually sburke, because he's best at this sort of thing) to reply, "Steve, sorry, dude. This one i

  16. Yeah, exactly. The best way to think of a BMP is an assault raft that can carry right on and attack with the infantry; the range of a MRR or MRB that has a bridgehead is no further than their current load of fuel. A river-crossing by a BMP unit is no different than a typical cross-river attack with rafts in principal: to secure the far bank for bridging. You got to get one across and keep it intact to continue any type of operational movement. American doctrine puts a lot more faith in the infantry's ability to deal with threats in a limited environment and lots of support, whereas a lo

    Having some fun with this. Sheet shows a grey background so that it can be read against the forum's white bg, but the final product will be white. Not 100% sure I've got the hulldown command properly correct here, feel free to correct me. if anyone wants to pitch in with some screenshots, that would be great! Turn Off Icons, Objectives text, etc.

  20. I was generally using US infantry in the WWII titles but recently have started to use Armored Infantry. I like the idea of having the tracks with additional ammo for resupply. It kind of adds a logistics element to battles. However I was accustom to the platoon HQ as a separate team in the straight leg infantry platoons. In CMFI the 44A Armored Infantry platoon HQ is part of 1st Squad. Same for Armored Infantry in CMBN & CMFB. I have been experimenting around with the best way to administratively split the HQ teams in a US Armored Infantry Platoon. I found a way, using the admin

  23. Open letter and personal statement I would like to express a few words on a recent situation that came out in the gaming community: pay for mods. I have no intention to, I never had intention to and I will never ask for money for my mods. I strongly belive that my modding is something done for myself and my tastes (first of all) and for the benefit of the community (or at least those who might be interested in trying/using such mods). I belive that a lot of credit should be given to BFC (in this particular case) for making not only a great game but also a good mod support (instruments for
