  1. It was a showcase for the products of domestic armament industry and Military Technical Institute (Lazar 3, M 20 MRAP, Nora B-52, Pasars, modernized M 77 Oganj, modernized Orao,Vrabac UAV, upgrades for M 84 tanks - M84 AS1 and AS2 (domestically produced T 72M/M1 variants), new firearms and opto-electronic devices for it) and new purchase from abroad - Mil-Mi 35's, Pantsir S1's, Chinese UAV's. More of everything from above (domestically produced preferred) would be good...
  2. I like playing with T 34/85's. Excellent anti-infantry performance, excellent anti-armor performance, excellent anti-structure performance, OK mobility, good spotting (even buttoned up). I don't like playing against Stugs.
  3. While mopping up remnants of German resistance in the latest PBEM, my team stumbles upon an HQ unit. The German commander prepares a grenade. He gets shot and the following happens. I wonder who will get credited with the kill...
  4. There also seems to be an issue with AGS 17 ammo in QB's for the Syrians. They often don't even have 2 full drums of ammo (29 in a single belt which goes into a drum).
  5. Tank commander Raboud destroying a T 55 MV. The round exited through the other side.
  6. While repelling HTS counter-attack, T 72 tank commander Raboud spots a jihad-mobile loaded with fighters and orders it's destruction. The aftermath.
  7. From the same PBEM. There is nothing quite like flanking a Panther and taking it out with a 75 mm M4! Note the already existing damage on the Panther. Side skirt was hit by a bazooka, the tracks on the side of the turret were hit by a cumulative rifle grenade. The tank was engaged frontally four times by a 75 mm M4. The commander was killed by machinegun fire from an M4. His replacement, the gunner was shot by an M1 Garand. By the time it was destroyed it had only three crew members and it was still capable of fighting.
  8. From an ongoing PBEM game. A Panther hides behind a damaged house. M 36 fires an AP round at the house. It hits the front wall, goes through it, exits through the collapsed back wall and destroys a Panther!
  9. Tal Othman continued> Hezbollah fighters moving up, after repelling yet another HTS attack. Meanwhile, 9K111 operator engages a T 72M. Distance to target: 1300 meters. Missile flight time ~8 seconds. The operator is being encouraged by militia machinegunner. The missile is fired. The missile flies straight to its target. Target hit! The tank is knocked out. Turret crew evacuates, no sign of the driver - mechanic.
  10. Another PBEM concluded. Played as German Army. Some interesting screenshots. They killed his team mates, he captured a squad. Even in death they form a line.
  11. My guess, those guys thought it was a VBIED and were preoccupied with saying their prayers...
  12. Decided to try them out, just to see how much time will pass until my sense of invulnerability gets one of them destroyed
  13. While doing my set up for a PBEM qb, I inadvertently perfectly aligned my Tigers and halftrucks... Only the Stummels are sticking out like a sore thumb. What a sight to behold!
  14. We don't need a story. Just an opportunity to play Late war USSR formations against Late war Western Allies formations. The rest we can make up ourselves!
  15. Decided for a huge Red vs Red PBEM with my friend. He decided to push his T 62 MV platoon forwards. I couldn't let that happen unpunished. It was a busy day for gunner Ta'anari and his Konkurs BRDM - 2. T 62 MV platoon got rekt!
  16. Tal Othman shooting range. Realistic training guaranteed!* *Caution: Targets may shoot back.
  17. A scene from @Liveload's Tal Othman scenario. Corner peeking at it's finest.
  18. I've finished the scenario. Here are my results. I've enjoyed the scenario. The unit placement is superb. If you take some of the more obvious approaches you will find yourself in a crossfire... The BRDM 2 position surprised me. I was wondering what was the reasoning behind their placement? Another, (un)pleasant surprise was the AGS position. As someone who has trained other people how to use the AGS, I find it's placement excellent! 9K111 in the end had 4 kills on its list. It turns out one of the positions it destroyed was the position of the HQ team. As far as the sto
  19. Another interesting situation. "Armored" cars... During the course of battle, a BRDM 2 position is found. The command decides that it would be wasteful to use RPG's on it. The duty of taking out the BRDM 2 falls on machiegunner Shvets and his assistant. Shvets opens fire with his PKM, while his assistant readies an RGO/N. RGO/N in air. Another one was thrown for good measure. With a couple of short bursts the crew is destroyed. The company now has another trophy to add to it's motor pool.
  20. Gave this scenario a try. Excellent work @Zveroboy1! Everything I was taught to expect when attacking an enemy position is true in this scenario. Really great scenario design. Haven't finished it yet. Some situations arose during my play through that I deem worthy of sharing. The XO's team got under PKM fire. The command decided to use the 9K111 against PKM. Another missile was used, the PKM was silenced!
  21. Continued. Tactical situation No.2: Destruction of a tank pair. Two Pz IV's trying hard to be a deterrent. The attack starts as the 25 pounder barrage nears it's end. M 10 destroys the first mark (apologies for bad camera positioning, it was an extreme hull down position). The attack was not without it's risks, but they were calculated and deemed worth it. (the shot flew just over the TD, the crew can count their blessings) The second M 10 finishes the task. The aftermath. Note that these two tanks were destroyed in the
  22. Excerpt from an ongoing PBEM match (I play as UK). Tactical situation No. 1: Destruction of an unsupported tank. A lone Pz IV sits somewhere in Italy. Most ominous sight! Aftermath.
  23. It was Panther A Mid and I was surprised it happened. Been playing CMx2 games for years now, first time I saw it happen. It was very pleasing to see RICHOCHET INTO Opening! But, to conclude this PBEM session. Remember that part where I said tank company XO took over command. Well this was the company CO, a certain Captain Grammont. 😉 He died heroically, engaging enemy Panthers and buying time for M10's to take positions. @Battlefront.com Sorry man! I tried my best... 😄
  24. PBEM continued. Images of the village before the operation. The village after the operation.
  25. Yet another PBEM concluded. I played as the US Army. My opponent decided to experiment with his armor, hence the lopsided results. My reaction was simple: Nyet, comrade. This is how you use armor. Technically, I lost one and a half tank, cause one of my M 10 was penetrated by a Panther. These are the results. Here are some more images. This Panther was bogged down by harsh terrain, the crew was bailed out by an M 10 shot to the commanders cupola. Subsequently, it was engaged several more times, all ricochets, until one bounced from the turret armor right into the
