  1. Not sure how these refinements to Soviet operational art will pan out in a strictly small unit tactical game, but It should be fun making scenarios in mind that focus on OMGs. Just don't forget Soviet development of operational art was at its apex in the 1980s, something the Red Army had been working on for 60 years at that point. Back during WWII the Red Army could only dream of vertical envelopment, but by the 1980s it was a reality.
  2. So, David Bowie was born January 8. When was this expansion supposed to come out?
  3. Konovalov. Yeah, the real deal. There's a plaque for him in Kazan. He ended the war in Germany as a tank battalion commander.
  4. If you ever find your self out in the Northwest--Seattle to be exact--IM me and we'll see what the local breweries have on tap. COVID permitting, of course. Stay healthy, amigo.
  5. Oh and, Vacilllator, to off-topicalify this thread further I want you to know my wife and I visited your neck of the woods two summers ago. A walking tour to be exact, roughly around Taunton to Lynton. It was probably one of the best trips I've taken ever. First trip to England even. What I'd do for a real pasty now. Enjoy your little piece of paradise, sir.
  6. I took that from an actual WWII photo on the Russian front. Must have been Summer '41 even. Sad when you actually see it. The tank in the picture is wrecked and abandoned. That's not a person at the top but a hatch left open.
  7. I understand the frustration. It was rather surprising to have left the community in 2014 and come back 6 years later and see CMRT has had no expansion other than from the player community. Still, there are a lot of games out there. I'm playing Order of Battle among other things. There is Armored Brigade on Steam which is a great, true wargame for the NATO vs WP setting. There's also Hell Let Loose and Post Scriptum for the FPS view of WWII. And for the Russian Front(or Vietnam) there's Rising Storm 2. Anyway, it probably doesn't help much pointing this out unless you pull back a bit to a high
  8. The Vistula-Oder strategic operation of January '45 is a textbook example of operational art. Even more so than Bagration. A perfect setting for Fire and Rubble.
  9. Very sorry to hear of Wild Bill's passing. Those were good times back then and it was one hell of a tight knit community back then.
  10. BFC, I remember back when work was being done to make an operational overlay from which to create and link individual CM battles into campaigns, based on a persistent OOB. It was called Combat Mission: Campaign. It never made it due to a number of reasons, and it was focused on the x1 engine. I'm curious as to whether the newest engine(4?) has the functionality to have something like this designed and developed?
  11. Like the old saying goes, "Никто не забыт, ничто не забыто." No one is forgotten, nothing is forgotten.
