  1. One concern I've had for a long time is the relative scale of movement in regards to the fastest movement rate - FAST - as opposed to the actual human potential. In other words, soldiers don't seem to move as fast as they could on scale. This would be very important in a high density area like this where a sprinting individual could cross enfilade zone very quickly and increase self-preservation by presenting an extremely short-term target.
  2. I can't help but feel that the problem some are having replicating these results lies in variables within the action spot system which we are not privy to understanding. I've used the same technique to try and blast a hole without entering, and only succeeded in blasting a LOW WALL which was directly behind my troops. So right there we can see that if we throw in just a few terrain variables that are different from a normal case situation, the results can vary quite wildly.
  3. Today someone was commenting about an article referring to the number of horses killed in the US Civil War. He stated somewhere around 175,000. I casually said, "That's nothing compared to WWII". Another fella said "WWII, I doubt it". I think there is a misconception about the number of horses, pack animals, etc. that were utilized in WWII. Does anyone have rough numbers about how many horses were actually killed in WWII? I said at the time it was in the millions, but would like to have a firm source for numbers.
