  1. If they do bring in the Germans could we do a Reichstag battle redux?
  2. So there is benefit to having a FO in a FIST but not an FO in the MT-LBu?
  3. I think my case may have had to do with ECM. It was like the turret was freaking it out, it was not tracking anything and just spinning like it was a show. However once it got going it did empty its ammo. I see this is a problem with the VADS. If this happens frequently does it make sense to add a support truck with ammo? Its weird to have a vehicle empty its ammo in only a few minutes and not have a way to keep it combat operational after that.
  4. Wow, thanks for this. I have no idea why my Shilka commander was ignoring the vehicles blowing up next to him being hit by a Cobra. It was really weird as once I closed him up the Shilka looked like it rebooted with the turret spinning around but not firing.
  5. Right? You would think the commander would be able to see the helo and decide to take it on. The VADS does not seem to suffer a similar problem which is why I unbuttoned my Shilka commander in the first place.
  6. I was paying Scouts out and was seeing my infantry and armor getting hit constantly while my Shilka just sat there in the open. I then buttoned him up and the turret started spinning for 30 seconds and then started tracking the air threats. It makes some sense that the commander would need to hit some buttons inside the turret but this is not mentioned in the manual.
  7. Is the thread justified and ancient😉
  8. I also have had some luck with these. I suspect this has to do with fighting on longer ranged maps. They are good in a team but they cannot spot well.
  9. How do you get your pictures to Post here? Mine are always too large.
  10. I still love how great the TOW missile is but I am still shocked how bad the BMP-1 is. It cant see and the main gun is barely adequate and when the squad leader leaves it becomes even more blind.
  11. Was this also true for their WARSAW Pact allies? I assume so but maybe the East Germans had other thoughts. I would love to see them and the Poles in the game. And some Soviet Naval Infantry.
  12. So the Hinds were meant for CAS? Those seem made to help the infantry on the tip of the spear.
  13. I did like seeing my Redeye gunners getting credited with a kill and seeing and hearing an explosion off the side of the screen.
  14. Watch out for Soviet airpower they are effective and do show up. Its a different feeling when playing as the Americans and having to worry about not having complete air superiority. I cringe when I hear jet engines and realize I did not call for any air support. However, I am surprised how effective the Redeye missile is.
  15. So are there any scenarios which more accurately depict the CW way of fighting? Id like to play those.
  16. I always fear fighting in cities with CW forces for this reason. Is there a guide for using CW forces in a built up area? Its one thing when you can call in artillery or tanks but what can you do on the attack when the streets or buildings prevent you from calling on this support?
  17. Resurrecting this older thread so Panzershrecks and bazookas can now fire inside of buildings? I had thought the blast effects would prevent this but got my last Sherman destroyed by a panzershreck last night from a german firing from 10 feet away on the third floor of a building.
  18. I am also interested in how WP works as I thought I use target smoke on the unit I am trying to hit but when I have used it the target comes away fine.
  19. I was reading a graphic novel titled `Battlefields` by Garth Ennis and the book contains a appendix where they note some of the sources they used when writing the novel. In this I came across this supposed quote from Gavin where he says `If our infantry would fight, this war would be over by now...Our artillery is wonderful and our air corps is not bad. But the regular infantry-terrible. Everyone wants to live to a ripe old age. The sight of a few Germans drives them into their holes`. I cant find the entire quote but was would like to know the entire context was about. Did he really thin
  20. Any hints on completing the 4th mission? I can`t believe I am tasked with clearing 2 hamlets and moving a company through all without armor support. I cant clear the hamlets as I can't sight the opposition to call in motors without getting killed first and I am told to save artillery for the next mission. I have raged quit on this a few times.
  21. I found this tidbit interesting, "And the British side did take disproportionate casualties in Normandy. And it’s largely for tactical reasons. I’m not going to get into it, it’s way too complicated to explain, but yes the British did suffer very high losses against the Germans for a variety of reasons. That was not the case on the US side." What does he mean by that? My understanding is that since the British had to contend with the majority of the armored units in Normandy they inevitably suffered more tank losses.
  22. Battlefront recommend I try the solution below. It fixed all of my problems: > 1) Right-click on the CMBN application. Select "Show Package Contents". > 2) In the window that pops up, right click on the Contents folder and select "Get Info". > 3) In the Info window, click the lock in the lower right hand corner. Enter your password at the prompt. This should "open" the lock. > (The permissions for Contents should look fairly normal.) > 4) Click the gear button at the bottom of the Info window and select "Apply to enclosed items". > 5) "Close" the lock. Close the Info wi
  23. Here are the instructions I got from Battlefront that fixed this problem for me: > 1) Right-click on the CMBN application.

  24. I also report the same problem but it only is confined to CMBN. After patching to 2.12 the game dos not launch. I hit the icon to start the game and it just bounces and does nothing. I have reinstalled the patch and still get the same results. It worked fine before the patch. CMFI has also been patched to 1.12 and still launches. Permissions for both game are identical. I am running a MAC OS X 10.8.5 with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2048 MB.
