  1. There is this one video clip that I have seen used very often in WW2 documentaries to describe all sorts of situation. It starts off showing a view down a canal or waterway of some type then all of the sudden a massive explosion occurs and a bunch of debris is thrown toward the camera. The video quality was sort of poor and grainy and of course black and white. For some reason I seem to remember the origin of this clip was from German propaganda footage of some early war assault (maybe the Maginot Line?).

    Anyone else remember the one I'm talking about?

  2. Boche, haven't seen any newer documentaries in a while that I knew were totally "grogish". Sometimes I will start watching something I think looks really intelligently done and historically accurate and then all of the sudden they will throw in some picture or clip that I know for certain from experience that doesn't belong to the place and time of the subject matter.

    These three older ones are pretty solid

    The War (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0996994/)

    The World At War (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071075/)

    Battlefield (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120926/)

  3. There is a abstraction in CMBN already that sort of creates the "pre-battle camo" effect, for AT guns at least. The effect is nowhere near what I would like to see and not exactly what you all are talking about.

    Here is the somewhat vague statement on page 88 of the CMBN manual that states...

    "Note: anti-tank guns that are deployed in the Setup Phase

    and do not move or rotate are harder for the enemy to


    I have always interpretted this as meaning those units get a concealment bonus.

    I would very much like to know if infantry units and/or HMG units hidden since setup gain this same concealment bonus if they remain in position and don't move until they engage the enemy.

  4. I would love to see a cheap (~15 points) 1 or 2 man combat medic team added to the force selection. They would work well with the current buddy aid system, except that they would be far more eager to instantly treat all wounded than the random guy from the Company over the hill. It would also be neat if AI were coded to avoid shooting at medics if possible. I don't know how that would work out, but it would be interesting. Lastly, it would make me feel more honorable if medic units had some toggle option to treat enemy units.

  5. The Peng thread appears to be where these six same guys post up like 6 pages of random nonsense until one of them decides to reincarnate the thread once more with another crap name. No one actually likes the thread except for those six same guys but no one will admit it on the BFC boards for fear of being brutally reamed by the shadowy and unknown "They" who stand guard over the Peng thread.
