  1. I liked this one as well. After reading this thread I am even having much better success as the Soviets. I personally tend to think less about infantry in modern titles than I should. Now learning that in CW, the tech is good but not 21st century good. The grunts have way more utility. Also glad that I was a tanker in the 90's and 2000's, not the 70's or 80's. LOL
  2. I personally like the narrative style for briefings. The more proper one's often read and sound like a real order being delivered, but I like a story. FWIW of course, I am just a silly C-DAT.
  3. That is weird, given that my experience is they worked better in the cold or when raining. Unless maybe the bad guys had not moved or run the engine in some time.
  4. Like everyone else said, you better be. "If you are not scanning your sector, you are wrong." If you are not in direct contact, the loader should be up and looking around as well, with the binoculars if the TC is not using them.
  5. As a former armor crewman, I can confirm that this is not a thing I would want my tank to do on a regular basis. Track is heavy and a real PITA to fix, especially under fire. Add a level or two of difficulty for having to fix it while not in the motor pool.... If the crunchies have demo, armor should sit back a bit and use all those wonderful weapon systems to support. IMO of course.
  6. Interesting take. I actually find the differing dice pools my favorite feature of the ruleset. Followed closely by the "reaction" features. It simulates to quality differences among the sides well. I won't give away the results of this scenario, but my plan involved making full use of the dice system.
  7. *Takes Bow* I am "Brian" in this particular episode. I "star" in three others from this season. Speak to my agent for interviews. :) Full disclosure, I am not a veteran of Iraq II. My time was before 2003/2004.
  8. That is cooler than the other side of the pillow. Thanks!
  9. I am upgrading my gaming PC sometime this fall. After I have the upgrade version of CMSF2 installed.... Will I need to install CMSF1 on the new PC and then upgrade it again? (After properly uninstalling on old PC first, of course.) I promise to injure myself in some way if this question already has been asked and answered.
  10. +1 to this. I have seen it happen and have had it happen while I was driving. It would usually happen in winter conditions. But never on purpose like those clowns.
  11. What this guy said. Wanted to add that it took me a second to think about why going over RR tracks like that could do what you said. That had to be impressively installed RR track that the RR track won. Also, having been there and done that with the whole "I spent 24 hours picking wire out of the tracks" thing, a HUGE +1 to the idea of not running over many obstacles unless you really have to. It might be fun in the moment but you will likely regret it later. I probably said this before... For every hour of "this is awesome" you get out of being a tanker, there are 10 hours of "this sucks" that goes into it. But it IS a wicked awesome hour.
  12. I stand happily corrected. So the general grumblings I recall in my head of "hull down" being difficult to attain are just those damn voices again?
  13. Fighting positions would be nice but I imagine the "LOS is calculated from the center of the object" issue would be a problem. When the vehicle is in the position, it would not be able to see much. We would also have to simulate the ACE crew who stole all your pogey bait while you were sleeping while they were digging. LOL
  14. You mean the smoke generator plate on the rear deck? I never got to see the smoke genrator in actual use, but it was very handy for heating things up. When I was in Cav, the scouts were our buddies in winter.
  15. Quoted for truth. There was nothing in that MRE worth eating. It had the "tack pad" oatmeal cookie bar and some other awful side. I'd rather go hungry.
