  1. With us Yanks it was perfectly functioning Bf 109's and FW 190's in tunnels under Geissen Depot.
  2. I think PsycoBuzzCut has spent too much time on forums where trash talking and putting down other user's opinions is the norm.
  3. Really nice mod! It captures the look of Baghdad in 2007. Which I'm sure applies to most of urban Syria as well.
  4. The AN/TAS 5 that is the Dragon night targeting system is a thermal sight.
  5. Yes. I may just have a fuzzy memory of the time. But IIRC the unionized, long haired Dutch Army was actually only one brigade and the rest of the Dutch Army followed standard type military regulations.
  6. My unit in 81-84, had the old style Vietnam era flak vests all stacked up in a storage room. But that literally was the only place I saw them. We never used them, even on field exercises or alerts.
  7. Yes it is. US troops would be using M16A1s which had full auto.
  8. Absolutely, this applies even to the in game versions of the Bradley and Abrams. There were no CITVs in the Cold War era, the commander gets the same view as the gunner via his sight extension.
  9. And there is also BC for Bradley Commander. Although in the CW time frame it would have been used for Battalion Commander as well.
  10. Even in 1989 when I started my last tour in Germany there were some Bradleys still painted in plain green camo. When I first arrived my unit was just turning in their plain green M2s for forest camouflaged M2A2s. So the green was around for a long time.
  11. Well then, if you think about it BFC won, because that's the policy on advance release dates.
  12. That right there is also a very good use of the Ranger Battalions.
  13. So far the only mod I've seen any problem from is Aris Panther pack. It works fine in summer, spring and fall, but it tries to put a summer camo turret on whitewashed winter hulls. Other than that all my CMRT mods and the various other cross game mods (flame and smoke mods etc) are working just fine, and I have a LOT of mods installed. Of course nothing that is new with FR is modded at all.
  14. Although back then the 173rd was known as SETAF, for Southern European Task Force.
  15. The main change was the addition of a forward assist.
  16. They were issued at company level but the distribution always ended up at one per squad. That was in 1982.
  17. Rough frozen ground in real life will throw tracks faster and more easily than you would think. Remember not all immobilizations in CM are due to mud or soft ground, many are mechanical or vehicular.
  18. MLRS is a Division and higher asset in the US Army scheme of things.
  19. The very same! I was an IHAWK Radar operator stationed on Giessen Depot from 1981-84.
  20. Yes Rush is from Canada. I very much am a massive Rush fan. But my reason for choosing Tom Sawyer is because I was stationed in Geissen West Germany in the US Army when Moving Pictures was released. So Rush is very much mixed into my Cold War memories.
