  1. To the Last Canadian?: Casualties in the 21st Army Group Terry Copp, Wilfrid Laurier UniversityFollow Abstract In Normandy, Canadian infantry divisions suffered a higher rate of casualties than British divisions engaged in similar operations. These figures have been used by some historians to prove Canadian failure on the battlefield. However, by using statistics gathered by operational research scientists during the war, this article shows that the “considerably heavier casualties” suffered by the Canadians in Normandy and beyond were the product of a greater number of days in close combat with the enemy, not evidence of operational inexperience or tactical failure.

  2. For the next full game after the Commonwealth module, which takes CM:FB to VE-Day? My credit card is loaded...
  3. On a related subject. Does anyone has any idea how to convert a map from CM:CW to CM:SF2 and vice versa? I had no luck so far.
  4. Marc Milner, Stephen Napier, John Buckley, everything by Terry Copp and Mark Zuehlke. All available for Kindle.
  5. Nice! Those should be 2A1s for the 1982 timeframe, I guess. Now throw in the whole Leopard 1 family (A1 to A4) and some Marders and we could play some cat games at north german plain. Maybe next year?
  6. Yep. If you set-up a shooting range in the editor for 4km and let 20 soviet tanks cautiously advance to 20 M48A5 or M60A1 tanks, everything except T64Bs and T80Bs will get butchered by M48A5s or M60A1s. Mostly at ranges between 3k and 2,5k. The tested T64Bs and T80Bs only survive because their AT-8 Songsters kill most of the M48s or M60s at 4k distance. If you do the test with T64B1s and T80B1s the result is totally different. I guess the devs have to look into this a little closer. Would reality have been like that, there would have been no need to introduce the 120mm smoothbore to NATO forces back then.
  7. Yes, certainly well deserved. Output for this year is stellar, to say the least. Update 5 and Commonwealth module to get CM:FB to VE-Day would be very nice topics for 2022. I guess they also have an idea or two about what comes next in their pipeline.
  8. No need to. At aprox. 500metres and less the balance shifts and the Panzer Vs get massacred. Easy to test in the editor.
  9. The more the merrier. Wouldn´t mind to have the dutch and belgians in that module also. If they manage to implement North German Plain 85 by Tiller everyone would be more than happy I guess John Tiller Software - Modern Campaigns - North German Plain '85
  10. "East and West Germans and BAOR" Those three whould be perfect for a north german plain module. Printing "Welcome" (johntillersoftware.com) North German Plain - Wikipedia
  11. Set-up a test in the editor. 1k and 2k distance with 20 IS2s vs. 20 PzV. In both cases the IS2s will get massacred. Looks about right.
