  1. IIRC Syria was still using the BS 3 on their Golan front in 2008 which is the year CMSF is set.
  2. Chanting : New Years Bones! New Years Bones! Soon we'll get New Years Bones!
  3. Right. That's really the source of my question from playing CMSF and running into them. CMSF probably has an over representation of scenarios set in built up areas I suppose.
  4. Yes this may be an ill-infomed question. The question comes from playing Combat Mission and not direct experience. And yeah the Bundeswehr and USMC have their rocket launchers but those strike me as requiring a higher skill level to use. The US Army seems to be using the Javelin in a similar manner. It just seems like the simple and cheap RPGs would be a valuable asset in any army. Thanks
  5. It's pretty good, but it does look more like Afghanistan mountains than the Alps/
  6. I'm a little late to the thread, but I think the choices made so far are good ones. Combat Commander is excellent if you are okay with not having vehicles. And Simonitch's operational games are top notch. If Jason is still around and sees this thread he cam probably give you a long essay on the plusses and minuses of different systems/designers. Sadly the Combat Commander designer passed away of cancer last fall. If you're looking for something lighter that seems to have struck a cord with many non-wargamers recently take a look at Undaunted:Normandy, soon to have a sequel Undaunted: North Af
  7. I remember Hamstertruppen but not lobsters.
  8. Say what you will, the NATO strategy worked. I think there was a tendency which carries over to this day to overstate Soviet capabilities for obvious reasons.
  9. I recall CMSF I being used just to show US Army logistics officers just how easy it is to expend literally tons of ammunition in a typical mechanized company engagement. I think that was just an individual initiative by the training school who had purchased several copies of the standard commercial game .
  10. Wow, congrats guys. Somewhere I have an issue of Computer Games magazine with a preview of CMBO I saved. I should find it, scan it and post.
  11. I thought the article was an interesting read. https://getpocket.com/explore/item/the-very-drugged-nazis?utm_source=pocket-newtab
  12. Rocketman thinks it's going to be a long long time.
