  1. 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.
  2. 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:
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. I only noticed this with regular forces, not the SS or Luftwaffe.
  7. 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 Ita
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. He needs to upgrade to a 4 slice, toaster technology has improved over time.
  14. 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 t
  15. I have seen this issue in Black Sea and Normandy, no screenshots or saves to document though
  16. I have run into this issue before. If you decide to suffer through long enough the Icons will eventually disappear completely. Toggling the icons on and off doesn't seem to have any effect either. Neither does restarting the game.
  17. I thought so too for sure. Indeed, it is quite a challenge. For this test I only used normal T-90A in service with Russia now and it proved very resilient. Is there an issue with Duplet ERA performance recorded by change? Oplot seems to rarely survive Russian shell hits.
  18. Known issue? Damn and after all that work. To best serve the human race at large I will post some random spotting info I collected over the past two hours. I used a split test field with two tanks on each end with 800m distance between them. Here is a picture. The victims were set to never engage and no measurements were taken from them. All target tanks were always stationary. Difficulty selected was Elite and all tanks were Regular with Normal motivation and 0 (which is in the middle) leadership. For a control I tested M1 first. All times are posted MM:SS. The cutoff point I used was from th
  19. Finally, I was mere hours from composing a short story set in the Year of Our Lord 2145 with the view point of a soldier made of Hyper-diamond committing a holocaust of mainland China in the robo war being suddenly reminded of his human past when he stumbles upon an update from Robo-Steve from 2143 stating "Don't worry website almost robo-done. CMFB probably next week." This trauma awakened him to his true identity as one Mr. Vor and caused him to renounce violence and become a member of Communist Party. Thankfully I don't have to.
  20. LoL triple post, your RA regulation skins with markings link appears down could we get a re-up?
  21. Post install update, that Oplot skin is so good.
  22. BTR, that was a very long week. I am glad it is over.
  23. Honestly the Ukrainians don't have that many options for tanks to be added, most of the most logical ones are already present. However the T-80 is just far too cool to be ignored. I also think it would be pretty boss of Ukraine had some US lend lease panzers, like some of the old M1a1s we have warehoused. But such an option is even further fetched than adding t-80 in a new module. Although if its a future where we are willing to go to war over Ukraine, we might conceivable have provided them with more serious hardware, who's to say.
  24. It seems Ukraine has refurbished some of their old T-80s with hopefully more to come. Future expansions now have an even better excuse for some sweet, sweet T-80bv action in a future expansion. I know this is only a handful of them, but more T-80 is good. Also Russian T-80s should be in the future too. T-80.
  25. Does anyone know how many bros the boomerang with the 30mm turret can contain? Infantry bros that is, not crew bros. If it can carry a full Russian squad I will state for the record it is my favorite non Typhoon new Russian vehicle. Typhoon-K, the MRAP thing with four wheels at the front is the best thing man has ever created. We should intro an exact copy into US service for no other reason that its appearance. Are there any plans known about Typhoon-K production and if it will be widespread.
