  1. I rushed a portion of the fourth mission of the main campaign and lost so many vehicles to ambushing recoilless rifles. This is after I lost two Bradley's (one lost crew and pass and the other had crew and pass walk away). I'm going to redo the mission because I really didn't do it justice to rush and watch the Raptors game (my CO would be disappointed), and I love my pixeltruppen too much to allow too many casualties. What does everyone figure is an acceptable casualty rate? Realistically 30% is an acceptable statistic but it feels hard watching my troops walk into a bad spot and g

  3. Menthols, cloves, filter / no-filter, lights, Lucky Strikes...?
  4. I agree. I know that many people loved it but I couldn't. The terrible casting hurt it too. Vince Vaughn drove me nuts.
  5. Canadian Kangaroo APC. Dont hear nor see of it much, but did pretty good for the time it was in the war as a means to push infantry right into the enemy as opposed to a battle taxi. https://imgur.com/a/TXQRs
  6. It's not a new theme either. John Wayne in The Longest Day as Lt. Col. Vandervoort was thirty years older than the actual person. Apparently the real Vandervoort was a little displeased as being portrayed as a 50 year old man despite being in his late 20's for the D-Day invasion. Sounds like John Wayne was also a PITA to work with as well.
  7. Russians literally will use anything for artillery
  8. That's what I thought. It being more in common with society has turned it into a versatile word in the modern military. It's more a exclamation point more than anything else now. (NSFW) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lO0B-cjDozM
  9. It's unfortunate that some of the deleted scenes actually gives the characters of the crew more personality than their most apparent features. Bible being the religious guy. Gordo being the Mexican. Wardaddy being a huge douche. Coon-Ass being..well...an ass. The whole of Wardaddy's character is fleshed out in one deleted scene that involves him speaking about how his younger brother and his 'Rose' died in a car accident he caused while drinking. Hell, it explains the whole reason why he's in the military as well as the scars on his back. The one with Jon Berenthals character (sorry, just hate
  10. For sure. My southern force could have bypassed what seemed to be two platoons worth of paras and gone for the objective. Hammering through the front just cost me nearly a company. The north and centre were unavoidable though. They sat in what I wanted and my poor truppens paid for it dearly. That minor victory did not feel like one at all
  11. So I retried the scenerio tonight and took into consideration everything said here. My attempts in the South Forest were great. Scouts, scout squads, and flanking squads really covered the forest well. Had the opportunity to plaster the British a few times. But was halted just shy of the south objectives by withering HMG fire and a PIAT making the luckiest hit on my Panzer 3. However, the lack of reinforcements to the North left what was basically two under strength squads with a few HQ elements left to hold that area. The middle was daunting. All my panzers were knocked out by the
  12. I haven't heard much in the way of Canadian war crimes. There is an incident later in the war with the A&S Highlanders, but it in 1945 near the end of the war and there is not much recorded on it. Ardenne Abbey was not the only case either where the 12th SS executed Canadian soldiers and I believe close to 140 were recorded having been executed overall. It seemed the 12th SS had a particular liking to executing Canadian soldiers post Juno. I have Mark Zuerke's "Holding Juno" book that I haven't read yet. I can take a peek. But as far as being in Canada, I've never heard the term "Tomm
