  1. Army Calls For Increased Body Armor For Troops In Syria Regrets Having To Tell Nation About Syrian War This Way The word is out.
  2. I seem to recall a movie on Bruneval. There are three scenarios at TSD on the raid. I played one of them... maybe Thorne's. It was fun. Bruneval By: FREDROCK1957, Best Played As: Allies vs. AI Bruneval radar By: LARRY THORNE, Best Played As: Allies vs. AI Bruneval Raid By: VON_LUCKE, Best Played As: Two Player
  3. "Sahara" is one of mine. Plays out like the movie. Works for either side, but I suggest playing as the Germans. You can find it over at The Scenario Depot. I've seen at least one based on Kelly's Heros. In Europe, I believe the movie was called "Kelly's Gold." (I did a very quick search at TSD... did not see it.) Speaking of war movies... could not believe was I saw on the tube earlier tonight. The movie is "Battle of El Alamein" made in 1968. Foreign, maybe Italian since it is from the Italian perspective, at least the 10 minutes I saw. The Italians are bracing for a British a
  4. This is an old Google Earth photo. This may be clearer than the the current view... unless they have updated in recently.
  5. Over at The Proving Grounds web site, I uploaded a zip file containing 4 maps for the Fortress of Brest Litovsk set on the eve of Operation Barbarossa. I was working on this several years ago when CM Campaigns was announced (2005?). I was invited to join the CMC scenario design team and used this map as the basis for my campaign that would have been called "Barbarossa Begins." It would have featured the assault on the fortress and the exploitation of Guderian's forces up to the original Polish/Russian frontier. The zip file contains four maps. One is a maximum sized "battle" (somethin
  6. Terrific visual quality. Nice crispness. Otherwise, absolutely no context. Just a bunch of random 5 second clips strung together.
  7. So it is CMAK Scenarios you are looking for. I can recommend one of my own which is probably "huge" by CM standards, but not "To the Volga"-huge. Historical, set in Italy in the last days of the war: Medicina-Yoicks Tally Ho! 2P http://the-scenario-depot.com/scenario_details.html?command=search&db=scenarios.db&eqskudatarq=812 Commonwealth mechanized force must attack Medicina (moderate sized town) on the fly. Map is large allowing realistic engagement ranges and manuever. Probably more difficult for the Allied player. Scenario discussion thread has some good satellit
  8. You're right. It is sooooo unrealistic. German had a much bigger nose prior to WW2.
  9. I was sure there had to be a long lost scenario out there somewhere... it lends itself to CM easily. I did place a crater that represented the well, but I could not find the dehydration toggle. I tried to avoid letting the AI flank the position by creating some cliff terrain to funnel them toward the Allied position. Seems to work. Yes, there is also a scene with the Germans running away during a failed attack and their are multiple similtaneous shell blasts in their ranks... that tank has a very quick rate of fire!
  10. Sahara, starring Humphrey Bogart Based on the 1943 movie “Sahara.” A U.S. tank crew (M3 Grant) and their commander (Sgt. Joe Gunn, played by Humphrey Bogart) are separated from the main force as it is thrown into retreat. Alone, they make their way through the desert and accumulate an unlikely force of stragglers… an assortment of Commonwealth soldiers (a few Brits, an Australian, and a Free French soldier with the nickname “Frenchy”), a Sudanese soldier and his cooperative Italian prisoner. They even manage to shot down a German fighter and take the arrogant Nazi pilot prisoner.

  12. The "mad minute" were people fire at every rock, shrub, and sniper or griper hiding in a tree. Maybe we DO need a separate sub-forum for that! That happened to a guy I knew in college... or maybe it was his tailpipe stuck in a pecker... any way, it was still good for a laugh.
  13. Yeah, it is kind of funny. Since I am one who chose to pass on CM:SF for one reason or another, I don't frequent these threads much. I must say that the overall demeanor here is certainly lacking. Tsk, tsk. You guys have been sharing the same bunker way too long. For a game that hasn't been "officially" announced yet, there sure is a lot of discussion about it and prompt attention from the developers. Thanks for that, it is appreciated.
  14. Yes, correct. That is the original scenario I was working on as CMC was announced. I sliced and diced and remade the map a few times. If I was going to complete that scenario, I woudl use one of the 2x2 maps I converted it into (north and south portions). As is, you would need about 2 battalions to attack it, and that would be thinning out the units. :eek: I did have a lot of fun blowing the crap out of the fortress in some tests. I used over a dozen spotters and that seemed like a light bombardment.
  15. Sergie -- thanks for fixing above screen shots. Here is the other image I botched. Satellite view of the fortress from old Google image. The current image on Google Earth is slightly obscured by cloads but they have updated more of the area with crisper images.
