  1. Because I'm bored, I've played around with this. My set up Two Panthers firing under AI control Two Sherman fly, under my control, as targets. One in open ground, immediately behind a strip of light wood (no trees) the second hulldown behind a 2m high berm, which again has a strip of light wood on its top. Range just over 1500m I've run this test 5 times so far, which is nowhere near enough for a real analysis, but I'm getting a feel for the results. Rather than worrying about hits and locations I'm counting AP shells fired in order to destroy the target,
  2. I did this for the 251/9 used at Chenuax, but gave up when trying to get the crew into US uniforms. P
  3. I'm not seeing a gun barrel penetrated in this pic. I'm seeing a damaged muzzle brake that would likely not prevent the gun from firing. Really - you'd be happy to fire a 90mm high explosive projectile down a barrel that is that badly damaged, and potentially partially blocked. I was never a tanker, but if that had ever happened to my rifle I sure as hell would not have fired another round. Guns and their associated mountings and recoil systems are pieces of high precision engineering, with very small tolerances. If these are exceeded, due to damage or other external factors, they
  4. @Lt Bull Just tried to drop you a message, but maybe your inbox is full. Drop me a message, with your email address or make some space and let me know P
  5. I love this sort of stuff, so good to see you giving it a go. The real issue is what comprises you are happy to make to fit doctrine to the game and how important scenario balance is to you. I'll ignore the second point, and just throw out some thoughts on the first. Reality on the ground is very hard to determine if not based on historical records, and even then it is likely the TOE is overstated in most case for this stage of the war, but some principles can be applied. With regard to German outpost defense ...the width of a defensive sector assigned to a unit is approximate
  6. Rue du Château-Landon looks possible, but so do many other locations P
  7. Ah, but you typed more, I just copied and pasted ! P
  8. Stalingrad ([stalinɡʁad]) is a Paris Métro station on the border between the 10th arrondissement and the 19th arrondissement at the intersection of lines 2, 5, and 7, located at the Place de la Bataille-de-Stalingrad, which is named for the Battle of Stalingrad. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stalingrad_(Paris_Métro) Obviously not called that in 1944 though.
  9. Just to check you are running V2.02 ? as it seems this scenario needs you to be fully patched to date in order for it to work P
  10. In the "In the Shadow of the Hill" scenarios (4 separate scenarios) I cover a Brigade attack, with the map based on google earth and period maps and the forces at play are as accurate to reality as the game will allow. This shows how the forces were made up based on AAR documents and in all cases the various battalions attacked with only two companies up and with armour and artillery support. If you look at the scenarios in detail you will get a good idea of the tasks allocated to the three battalions (4th Dorset's, 5th Dorset, and 7th Hampshire's) mission 1 & 2: C & D Co 5
  11. Yep be sure to let us know if you hit this side of the pond. P
