  1. There is one detriment I experienced occasionally using blind area fire. That is the unit firing getting sniped by an AT gun. I'm not sure if that is because the unit conducting the recce is viewed as a sound contact or visually obscured then suddenly lights itself up as it starts firing. But I find blind area fire a risky endeavor at times.
  2. Its U2 debris for certain, hard to say what part but I'll go with a piece of the tail structure based on these different angles.
  3. U2 tail and SA2 missile, Hawker seafury on the right.
  4. If the player suffered losses, gets a bloody nose, while an enemy remnant sneaks off and allows its morale to recover this can happen rarely. Also if obj points are acquired by the ai for your units killed it can contribute to it hanging on. I've tested this but can't find the tipping point.
  5. Grieshof is pretty big for a H2H game, its a broad front map. But the force and unit types are comparable in number. The asymmetric factors could balance out. US weaponry is a little better, Soviets have a slight advantage for deployment position.
  6. Arid shells for vests were taken off of outgoing troops and re-issued to incoming in 2006 so there were some supply issues although the desert tac vests were in ample supply to all troops and pre-issued before arrival by 2007.
  7. First guy scored a hull hit. Second guy flubbed his shot, not sure what his intended target was. I read Team Yankee decades ago but I remember the part about the private trying to set up his dragon and missing his first shot, and his race to get a second shot off as the T80 was spotting him.
  8. Yep it can penetrate armor 11-14 inches, really, wow. The HE has to be loaded by hand with the weapon returned to a neutral orientation. My impression, in game I've seen it use HE on supply trucks, but it will follow up with the MG after, I've also seen it follow up again and use heat on soft targets.
  9. This may have something to do with the target vehicle moving, it might have shifted chassis position, or rotated its turret while the closer vehicle remained motionless. Having been on the receiving end of something like this in game. If I had sites on a tank and rotated facing I got spotted while crews were still preparing to launch while other vehicles nearby were not spotted. This doesn't answer the question why the closer vehicle was not seen, but rather why the further tank was.
  10. Nice pictures, is that an AMX13 turret on a Sherman chassis in the back there? Who woulda thought.
  11. There was that one engagement in Vietnam where 2 PT76 faced off against US M48's. (Ben Het). One M48 took a direct hit to the turret killing two crewman. So I guess the 76 gets credit for taking out an M48. But they too were short lived and all PT76 in that battle were destroyed.
  12. The CAT competition was an interesting indicator of the best tanks and crews. Sort of a biennial tank Olympics in Grafenwohr back in the day. Surprisingly the M60's held their own even with dated ranging equipment. The first year the M1 came in, it won of course. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Army_Trophy
