  1. I believe it is just talking about voices, I thought the same there is already ethicities so must just be extra voice wav files. I can't believe they want to spend the money to do this but must be ticking an "inclusivity" box for someone.
  2. I have just seen this announcement from dstl, looks like the the UK are getting a more “inclusive” version of CM! https://www.gov.uk/government/news/diversity-on-the-virtual-battlefield
  3. Very interesting topic. I would love to see the logic in how BF work out the price for tanks. I suspect they have a formula but during beta testing when people are using them in different situations there is a lot of “that tank is way OP for the price, it needs to cost more” and it evolves to be what we end up with now. I am at the point where I go with whatever interests me at the time, so do not get too hung up on the cost, but it does grate sometimes as the axis that I know I am paying a lot more the the US for their tanks (whether it’s fair or not)!
  4. I believe 'quite' places it somewhere in between the next 7 days and 7 years
  5. Mmmm intriguing, I cannot believe hanging on to hear about the release of F&R is about to be replaced with hanging on for some info on CM3 . P.S. if it anything like the change from CM1 -> CM2 it is going to be mind blowing!!
  6. The troops thought Easter was important too
  7. “best combination of fire power , mobility and armor”. That is the holy trinity of tank design, however for world war 2 I think you have to add ease of manufacture and complexity of the design/reliability. For me the Panther 1 on 1 with any other tank probably comes out on top but add in the the time it took to manufacture and that it was a complex machine prone to breakdowns then it’s T34/85 1st, Sherman 76 2nd and panther down to 3rd place.
  8. The new game looks great. I forum trail for a Fulda gap games goes back so many years, I thought it was never going to happen. Keep the surprises coming BF
  9. I volunteer for beta testing the patch/FRmodule as well
  10. Great news the game is on its way. Been a while since the last release so thanks Steve, Charles and the team!!
  11. really interesting interview - I had forgotten how much I played those first CMBO demos back in the day
  12. Very interesting news, lets hope it ends well as a win win win all round.
  13. Yes I know before everyone chimes in it will never be in the game. Or the Maus
  14. was it an Is-3 on the receiving end??? We have to see it!!
  15. Hi All, challenge going out for anyone interested in a CMBN or CMFB QB preferably med or small. Anyone interested?
  16. The first aider has to be in the same square of the map, it can be hard to judge somethings when the soldier seems to be across the edges of 2 squares. As I have found trying to get hold of a precious MG42 or AT rocket from a fallen soldier. As already said it also boosts you casualty figures at the end as well even though they take no further part in the battle.
  17. I think they had a few scimitars and tracked recon vehicles, but you are right it would not be quite the scope of shock force.
  18. How about U.K. vs Argentina in the Falklands
  19. Really interesting video, thanks for sharing. I always thought there was a place in military training for CM so very glad the U.K. are making use of it.
  20. I thought this might have been prompted by Radio general being released. An all voice command 'armchair general' style game.
  21. thanks for sharing - i am going to give it try!
