  1. Dipping in to check my ancient thread ahead of the CMBN steam release, surprised to see this never got patched. Hopefully this issue is corrected for the steam release.
  2. I am enjoying Fire and Rubble's new content so far, a weird omission that I suspect was an oversight is that the Recon Battalion [Motorcycle] is present in the scenario editor but not the quick battle formations. As this is one of the only forces that gets the new lend lease valentines and halftracks it would be nice to have in regular quick battle. The only recon formations for purchase there are company or squadron size.
  3. That is true in the scenario editor, but not the quick battle unit purchase roster. For reference I am running v4.03 of CMBN with both set to July 1944in these images While in the scenario editor:
  4. Hello, I have recently returned to playing CM Normandy and have noticed that while present in the scenario editor the Porsche turret King Tiger are not present in quick battle even when set to June 44 Heer. I own and have activated all the expansions including the vehicle pack, so I am thinking this may be similar to the situation with the M8 HMC from a few years ago. I mostly play drop in quick battles online so I would love to have access to this vehicle. Unrelated, but back adding the Wasp from Italy to Normandy would be splendid in some hypothetical perfect update.
  5. Off topic slight from the prior posts, I know Fire and Rubble adds Luftwaffe FD and FJ formations to Red Thunder, but does it also add the Hermann Goering division? From what I have read, it would mostly be a cosmetic change but I have fond memories of user made campaign featuring them in CMBB and wonder if they would make a return.
  6. As far as I can tell, you get grey or green uniforms for all Heer vehicles in CMFI, tanks, assault guns, no black wraps appear for any vehicle in the heer formations at any time.
  7. I only noticed this with regular forces, not the SS or Luftwaffe.
  8. Greetings, it has been some time since I have played Fortress Italy and am having great fun playing online with some buddies. One things I have noticed, and lack the knowledge to answer myself, is that German tank crews all seem to be wearing a grey or green colored wrap rather than the more iconic black one, the exception being of course the special SS and Luftwaffe tanker gear. In fact, using the scenario editor to view battalions of armor across all three game years I cannot locate a single black wrap in any formation. Were the German forces so uniform equipped with this uniform in Italy historically? Or is this perhaps an oversight? A small issue if so.
  9. Oh baby I have always been bothered by the fact the T-72A was missing from the Syrian arsenal, since they are the only non Soviet operator of the type.
  10. New (I think) video about Uran-9 UGV from the Russian Federation. I had read it was supposed to enter service in 2017 and portion of the video seem to show a production facility building these, although I have no idea planned procurement numbers or how they will be distributed. Would be a fun toy for high end RF units though, 6xRPO 2xAtaka, and autocannon.
  11. I have previously done a look at this which confirmed the Oplot has some irregularities with its spotting abilities. I am uncertain if this is the most definitive post on this issue.
  12. Just some promotional footage from the designer of the skif missile. Top end model is pretty swag with fancy thermal camera and It appears to have at least one feature that I doubt current CM engine can support, that sweet remote control. R2-M warhead's claimed performance is also not bad, 1100mm behind ERA compared to the current R2-S's 800mm. Also, that vintage Soviet camo.
  13. I have encountered icon flickering once and I use a GTX 770. Unrelated note, is there a unmentioned change to the M36 GMC ammo depending on month? I ask because in Jan 45 panther glacis plates extremely resistant to 90mm fire at all ranges, but in Oct 44 the Panther is much more vulnerable. 45 it almost feels like I am using an M10 instead.
  14. He needs to upgrade to a 4 slice, toaster technology has improved over time.
  15. I have the same problem with crewed weapons sometimes losing and re-gaining their deploy buttons. Here are some screenshots from a recent game I played. At game start my MG42 teams have the deploy button, as seen in this image. At various points throughout the game they appear to gain and lose them. Here, four minutes later the button is gone. I thought this might have been because they were moving, but here is a stationary team with the same lack of button. (A note, I do not have both units selected despite the icon being illuminated, the rifle squad behind the LMG lost a man the moment the screenshot was taken.) I wonder if this might be due to the gunners switching to their pistols? I would hope the re-deploy option would override their hunger to be a pistolero but then handguns were always the classiest firearms. I have seen this less often with mortar teams, but have still seen it with them.
