    I believe (in the UK & Soviet Union at least) sniper rifles were selected during the testing process for regular service rifles, the most accurate weapons would be selected for fitting with optics etc.

    In the USSR, a select production block of Mosins - regardless of accuracy - would be modified into sniper rifles. In Germany, those K98s that were the most accurate in factory firing tests would be converted into sniper rifles.

    Ah, so you are admitting you're a troll?  Because that is what a statement such as this is telling me and, most likely, others here.  Which is probably why everybody ignored your post except for me.  Silly me!

    Personally, I think he's one of those who thinks he's smarter than everyone else in the conversation and then tries to prove it further by tacking on some random pithy military quote at the end of his posts.

    The Forum is full of information and you take no action, just 2 examples:

    - somebody uploaded the Unit of Fire for German and Russian artillery; your numbers came out of a hat but we cannot change them.

    - there is a link to the Ammo Load of squads -and how is loaded; what do you need, a warrant?

    We are talking about TO&E, about documents. You sell a new game but you correct nothing, hopefully you understand the frustration and that that "maybe" is not helping.

    Yes, you have altered more than a few things in 22 years and not always for the better; this is an opinion, documents are not.


    UGCW is not easy to mod but somebody got the code and it has been done.

    RTW is easy to mod, one of them is RTR, Rome Total Realism.

    Games crash, we know that, modders know that.


    A lorry behaving like a combat unit is empirically wrong? -and I never mentioned modifying the AI, something you can do in some games.

    Is there a variable for when a MG is reloading, is it random?

    In my own, private, very humble, personal opinion we can improve the game. Your policy is: No.


    If we don't complain are you going to modify anything at all?

    So many words, but so few facts stated.

    As I understand, you had to re-specialize after the wall came down. I'll be reading it, looks like solid work. Don't mind Rice, he's bitter... Wish I knew a rice-based dish that was bitter in taste so I could make the joke, but you know, gotta work with the intel you have, a bit of a motto for us military analysts. 

    Please tell me you are joking.

    While we're here, John wanna tell everyone again your evidence of nukes being used at Kursk?

    To sum it up USSR fought Germany in the dense fog of war with inferior aviation and weaker artillery support.

    Their aviation was not inferior by mid-1943. For instance, over the Kuban bridgehead, the German senior command started remarking that the Soviet air forces were able to do "whatever they wanted" by around the middle of the year.

    I thought we wanted all-female formations as the Soviets had, to virtue signal our "me too" credentials.  Surely you are not hinting that women warriors cannot do all the things men can do?  You'll have sburke calling you a male chauvinist pig next.   :o  

    Uniforms are quite baggy, so no real sexy shapes are easily seen - not at the height level most folks play CM anyway.

    Do you ever think before you type?

    LMAOOOOO **** Nvidia. These guys are smoking crack. Why should Nvidia have my screenshots? They are mine. They belong on my hard drive. Nvidia isn't reinventing the wheel with screenshot software. I sincerely hope they go out of business. 

    Umm...screenshots taken with Nvidia's GeForce Experience software are stored on your hard drive. It's by far the best way to take screenshots in any game right now if you have an Nvidia card.

    Sorry, that is derogatory in American English only. I gave examples above.  

    For someone who sure loves to tell anyone and everyone how things are according to your worldview, you surely don't have much of a clue about American attitudes towards the Japanese in the 30s and 40s.

    Pro tip: instead of continuing to make yourself look like an utter fool, just keep your comments to yourself.

    Poms, Dings, Slopes, Square heads, Yanks, Canucks that's what I would call you last year. This year it is British, Italians, Asian, Germans, Americans, and Canadians. What people call me is none of my business. Welcome to the politically correct world, some words are acceptable in some versions of English and unacceptable in others. I won't write here what they call Japanese People in an Australian RSL Club. After all the WW2 Veterans are now Centenarians leave the old guys in peace. 

    Oh, piss off already. Are you really that dense to understand that certain terms just should NOT be used for PLAINLY obvious reasons?

    I looked from the start of this thread and realized that you have interposed yourself into a thread to which you have made no contribution whatsoever, and are merely attempting to derail this thread.  

    This is exactly the sort of thing you would complain about if anyone interrupted your thread.  I'd say this as a good example of hypocritical virtue signalling.  If you have nothing to contribute, why are you disrupting our conversation about a WW2 game?  If you are auditioning to be part of the thought and censorship police, China would love to have you.

    Have you been living underneath a rock for the last 80-plus years? Any excuse you make about using the term "Jap" is a laughable joke - and I'm putting it that way very politely.

    I suggest you purchase a dictionary and look up the definition of indirect fire. Right or wrong is not determined by a popular vote. 

    Thanks, but I was in a combined arms battalion for the last two years of my military service, so I'm quite aware of what direct fire is.

    That, and instead going on and on trying to explain to everyone here what indirect fire is and isn't, you'd do well to listen to the guy in this topic who was an FO in 82nd and is quite familiar with the methods that were used in the 40s - because, unless I am mistaken, he's said that the procedures to call for indirect fire hadn't changed significantly since the end of WWII and the time when he served.
