  1. Very good news today! The "Save Talbot House" fundraising campaign has received more than 114.000 €! The house is now saved and was officially re-opened by a 98 year old war veteran: https://youtu.be/wWQbWOftTi8 Thanks again for your kind help, dear fellow Battlefront grogs! (and please note that it's not too late to participate if you haven't done so yet 🙂) JH
  2. Hi Battelfront grogs! I was asked by my Belgian friend Mariël to forward you a call to save Red Talbot House in Poperinge: "Talbot House in Poperinge, a guest house during and memorial and museum of WWI, is in danger of being shut down due to lack of income these past few months. Since there is no public funding, and it’s run mainly by volunteers, they are hoping to prevent this by raising enough money from the general public, people who care. Pitch in if you can, however small the amount: https://www.gofundme.com/f/save-talbot-house?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&am
  3. A hard nut to crack indeed! It took me at least 6 tries to win it (WEGO). I suggest loading your grunts with ammo and Panzerfaust rounds before you start. Your troops need to find cover fast because those BMPs will destroy everything that is spotted. IMO the best place to be is on the right hill (the one with the mosque on top). IIRC I rushed two Fuchs to the right hill, one to the entrance of the village and one to the left hill. Then unload all the grunts, split them in two sub-teams and keep them in cover. Then I sent my two half-squads inside the village. The Fuchs stay back u
  4. Thanks for testing it Mord. Where did you fire it from and at what part of the wall? Was it from an elevated part of the map?
  5. Just tried again and I managed to fire one rocket at a random AS in the desert. So it must be a LOS/LOF related problem. Has anyone succesfully targeted the village wall with the SRAAW(H)?
  6. By coincidence I just played this scenario and ran into a problem with SRAAW(H) ATGM. I wanted to use it to punch a hole through the village wall, so I bailed the ATG squad out of its vehicle, moved them to a position with a clear LOS to the wall and ordered them to fire at it. Nothing happened but small caliber fire. I tried to moved the target a bit, to no avail. Then I realized the ATGM was still on the back of one of the soldiers. So I thought: OK, I've got to set the weapon up first... but I checked and there was no such button!? Tried with another ATG team which came wit
  7. It's been a while since I last posted a comment on the forum... but the mention of a winterized IS-2 triggered something ;-) I've seen that beast last August in a tank museum somewhere north-west of Moscow: Do you think we might see it in the new CMRT Module??? (PS: and about the previous photobucket mess!)
  8. It's been a while since I last posted a comment on the forum... and it's already a quarter past midnight... but the mention of a winterized IS-2 triggered something ;-) I've seen that beast last August in a tank museum somewhere north-west of Moscow: (image wasn't visible because it is on PhotoBucket so I removed the dead link - Steve) Do you think we might see it in the new CMRT Module???
  9. Upgraded from win 7 to win 10 yesterday and everything went smoothly. CMBN and FI run fine. Only had to download and install the latestet Nvidia Geforce drivers myself. Given that the upgrade was free, I won't lodge a complaint against Microsoft ;-)
  10. Outstanding! I found it very original by the way... you... erm.... "handled" the camera ;-) Shot at grassroot level, so to speak. Thanks for sharing this little gem with us!
  11. Do you guys want something new and exotic to play with? Don't look any further: let the French armed forces in. Long overdue... I've been waiting for that since CMSF was released (when was that ????). Patience wearing out, I'm afraid...
  12. Thanks for sharing! BTW I spotted what might be a typo on page 28 : shouldn't the yello segment be labelled "Quick" instead of "Move"?
  13. Bought the whole CMSF series to support BF even though modern combat was definitely not my cup of tea. Nevertheless I learnt a lot while playing it. When CMBN showed up I got hooked by WWII again and never launched CMSF ever again. With Black Sea nearing completion I'm still wondering if I will buy it or not. To be completely honest, I'm a tad skeptical about US weapons and vehicles not being über-modelled. Especially given that the game will allow us to play with new weapons whose combat characteristics are largely unknown. Had to say it. Done. Of course, if french vehicles were to
  14. Thanks Kuri. I made a quick search and foud this pdf. The vehicle is produced by DRS Technologies, which was bought by Finmeccanica in 2008. I bet it's an italian design. Ooops, I'm wrong: at the bottom of the PDF : "Cleared by U.S. DoD/OSR for public release under OSR Case Number 07-S-2992, dated November 27, 2007". One year before Finmeccanica bought it...
