  1. If you want to read some research rather than hyped up stuff page 21 of this paper might be useful. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Amos-Wright-Iii/publication/230590819_Methamphetamine_for_Hitler's_Germany_1937_to_1945/links/5a86ebbaaca272017e5a77b7/Methamphetamine-for-Hitlers-Germany-1937-to-1945.pdf?origin=publication_detail summary from above paper: Methamphetamine was synthesized in Germany in 1937 and commercially re- leased in 1938. It became a popular stimu- lant for tired night workers and a recre- ational drug for young people until mid- 1941 when it became a controlle
  2. Hhmm... let me think. Do I know them? Are they dead good at spellun'?
  3. There is a twitter feed (UK Fight Club) which often details how they are using their bespoke version of CMSF2 which some might find of interest. As an example this is one recent post.
  4. Your best bet for this is on-map mortars and you can then create a linked order and area fire to an AI trigger. Its not possible via off-map arty/mortar assets.
  5. Wee video describing threat armour, infantry and aircraft. https://armourersbench.com/2021/04/04/cold-war-british-army-threat-recognition-guide/ There will be an exam later
  6. Did you import the core unit file to each and every mission file? You'll need to do that for every scenario in your campaign- then check and delete any additional units - then resave the file.
  7. Ha! Ha! Yes, errmm well! My pleasure
  8. You would need the core units file and any changes to the experience etc would have to be done in that file. You would then import that core unit file into each mission you want to sue so casualties etc can be synchronised after each mission. I've no idea what the file might be named but it is the mission file that has the campaign briefing in it. You find the file with the campaign briefing you have found the core units file. Make your experience and leadership changes in the core units file then you will need to import that core units file into each and every mission file used in the ca
  9. Game Engine Manual page 113 under 'Making Campaigns' - but maybe missing the point of the question. It sounds like you are trying to recompile the campaign using modified scenario settings. But you'll need a core units file - if you are modifying unit settings you'll need to do it via the core units file, and you'll need a campaign script. It's all explained from page 113. But I'm thinking what you are seeking to do is not going to be possible in the way you perhaps think it is.
  10. Its been a while myself. IIRC its the radio operator who is sitting in the turret. As I said my issue with it is it masquerades as fact i.e. veteran recollections as do many of the books from this publisher when plainly they are not. That's my beef. A great many people not as clued up as you to the history and myths of the Eastern Front will lap it up as fact. I've a vague recollection of him kicking the driver when he is the commander in the turret, which is odd... Given the gunner would be in the way and the driver is just under 3m away...
  11. I’ve no issue with you disagreeing - my key gripe is they masquerade as true stories. Real history. For those less discerning or unable that is an issue as it promulgates myths and a very skewed sense of history. In any case his ability to see through his glass plated Tiger, the incorrect Tiger crew positions, the plainly wrong combat results - T-34/85s unable to KO Tigers when in reality they could deal a works of hurt all really boiled ma piss Even the two books I suggest need to be read with a pinch of a salt and placed in a wider perspective being very German centric views.
  12. I’d save your money. These pseudo-memoirs are utter tripe. All the books in this series are the same cobbled together mush mash. No relation or bearing to history. Sven Hassel Books would better. At least you know they’re fiction. If you’re looking for first person accounts linked to Tiger’s Otto Carius’s memoirs would be a better option - although he was not above embellishing the narrative! Another good option is Panzer Ace https://www.amazon.co.uk/Panzer-Ace-Commander-Barbarossa-Normandy/dp/1784382663/ref=nodl Freiherr von Rosen. Some selective recall but still an interesting read
  13. Saw them live at the Nite Club in Edinburgh around 1980 during their tour of this album. Brilliant gig! Ended up wandering around Edinburgh waiting for the first train home trying not to die from cold clad only in my leather jacket and sweat soaked T-shirt. In December. In Scotland, in winter...
  14. Recon in light vehicles was risky in RL as it is in the game
