  1. Not. The BMP-3K coax-machinegun bug has not been fixed either.
  2. Can we get a fix for the BMP-3K too please. The machinegun muzzleflash animation is bugged.
  3. Budgeting of ammo perhaps. The British forces in Germany would have been seriously outnumbered, and supply would not be easy, so economy of ammo seems like a good idea. The Warrior does have a generous amount of AP ammo, due to its role as a vehicle-killer. . The US and Russians were in a different position than the British. The US had a huge supply system to back up its forces, and the Russians; well, they didn't expect their vehicles to survive long enough for resupply to become an issue (and their advances were incremental with units being substituted/rotated as each objective was reached).
  4. The British Army has always had a particular obsession with ammo consumption/supply - which is no doubt linked to some of their greatest defeats in battle being linked to running out of ammunition. I too was puzzled about the Warrior until I did a bit of research about its background. It was designed and built in the late Cold War and meant to serve with British Armoured Troops in Germany, where it would be facing hordes of Soviet tanks and IFVs/APCs. In order to avoid that the vehicle blasted away its ammo within minutes, the slow-firing and 3-6-round Rarden was purposely chosen to ensure that the Warrior would remain combat effective for longer. Also, the lack of a stabilizer for the cannon meant that the crews were encouraged to remain in the pre-planned and prepared defensive positions the British Army would assume if war broke out. The ammo loadout of the Warrior is a clear indication of this role. Also, to the Rarden's credit, it did have the major benefit of not requiring an external power source and can therefore remain in action even if the vehicle's engine is disabled or turned off. Curiously the export version of the Warrior (called the Desert Warrior) which was acquired by Kuwait is equipped with the 25mm Bushmaster, rather than the Rarden. About the use of the Warrior in-game, I personally tend to mainly use its machinegun with a cannon for emergencies and/or armoured targets. This does require a lot of micro-management, which can be a bit tedious (setting target arcs is quick but it can lead to some frustrating situations).
  5. I'm more hopeful about fire being implemented like in the old games - where buildings and stuff could be set on fire and destroyed. Think napalm. And thermobaric explosives.
  6. UHhhhh...!!! Exciting stuff. This setting should be a lot more balanced than the other post-WW2 titles. Let's all cross our fingers for a 2022 release with CM:RT Fire and Rubble and the CM:BS expansion in 2021.
  7. A bit off-topic but I really hope we will one day see official modding tools. It would be a great way of engaging the CM community now that Battlefront has hit Steam and the player base is growing across multiple platfroms.
  8. That's not a Ratnik uniform. So that is probably not a "green little man".
  9. Happy New Year. Nice to see an update. Personally, Engine 5 Upgrade excites me the most. Hopefully roads will get some love.
  10. The game really needs a suppression command to help conserve ammo and make fire and maneuver tactics more doable. I imagine it working in the way that each soldier in a unit shoots one round, then follows a 1-2 second pause, and then the next soldier shoots.
  11. T-72AV/T-72AV-Turms-T model is also missing its smoke launcher. Syrian Special Forces trucks carry 7,62x39 instead of 7,62x54R. Airborne squads still only have 100 7,62x54R rounds.
  12. I wholeheartedly agree. It would make sense for Battlefront to use their existing models across more titles - they already have T-72 assets in CM:SF2 that could be reskinned and used in an expansion pack for Black Sea. And of course, there's my personal dream title: CM: Operation Unthinkable.
  13. It's been a while since we got any updates about upcoming games and expansions. It's my impression that Fire and Rubble is next and then an expansion for Black Sea, is this so?
  14. Best series of the year. No forced diversity, authentic costumes and actual latin spoken by the Romans.
