  2. Yep still one of the most satisfying WW2 combat games out there. With so much going on under the hood sometimes you miss torquing that one bolt to specifications.
  3. I am experiencing the same thing. I haven't played in quite awhile so I fired up some QB's to shake the rust out. In the QB"S the majority of the bad guys are on the wrong side of the bocage. Now this has re-occurred in the majority of Q.B. maps I have used. I am quite frankly surprised at this as I do not recall having issues with this before. I have restarted these QB's and same result. I have tried several things such as going into the Editor selecting the map and changing the direction of friendly-enemy lines in the Data then saving and restart a QB with the same map. Still the s

  5. Ah I see what you are addressing! I missed the fact of "The game is only showing helmets numbered 1-2". Though the others are there only two are showing up! I offer no excuses for my error. Well except for the fact that it is difficult to type one handed while the other one is cradling a kitty who has fallen asleep in your arms.

  6. Hey there, not sure what is exactly troubling you as your description is a bit vague. No biggie. I do the same thing, trying to be descriptive and brief. This mod is "plug and play" like any mod. Just drop it into your Z folder. If the extended numbers on the helmets or anything else have you confused don't worry. The extended numbers (beyond the ones listed on the original "built-in" files) just gives the game more choices to randomly choose a helmet to go on the soldiers. Hope that clears things up
  7. Umlat posted: Fixed that for ya For those who do not recognize this image it is from a great little anime called "Girls und Panzer". My roommate who is a fan of the more serious orientated anime even liked it. The story takes place where WW2 tanks are maintained for sport-style warfare competitions and large carrier ships known as Academy Ships support mobile sea communities. Of the many activities high school students can participate in, one of the most popular is "sensha-dō", the art of operating tanks, which is considered a traditional martial art. A
  8. FM 7-5 Infantry Field Manual 1940 The usual limits for war strength units with flanks covered by other troops are indicated as follows: Unit Frontage in yards Squad.....................50-75 Platoon------------------100-200 Company------------------200-500 Battalion----------------500-1,000 Regiment---------------1,000-2,000 These figures are just a guide line for a full strength unit in good terrain conditions. There are some excellent responses in this post that point out the various aspects that affect the possibility of obtaining a frontage
  9. Recently a after thought occurred to me about this question. I think that the average soldier was not really keen on the idea of manning that rear machine gun position as a means of auxiliary firepower in ground combat. It entails having your back to the enemy with the upper quarter of your body exposed and and no sort of armored protection for it. The risks far outweigh the benefits.

  12. Kevin2k you had to sign up to view the photos? When that pop-up blocks the screen I just click on the little "X" in the upper right corner and it is gone. Then I continue just scrolling along the sunny pixelated side of the street. Hey by the way, whats the difference between Bird flu and Swine flu ? ..... one needs Tweetment and the other needs Oinkment...

  14. Ever wonder if those annoying hits to one of your tanks main gun tube reflect real life? Well here you go. This Tiger commander is having a real bad day.

  16. Initially the halftracks were issued with two MG 34's attached to the forward and rear crane mounts. The front machine gun mount was changed to a more sturdy mount with a armor shield on the B model. I have not found any documentation as to whether or not a second machine gun was issued with the C model. If a second machine gun was not issued the most probable reason was the shortage of arms due to manufacturing being damaged by allied bombing. If I remember correctly I read some account that stated they would mount one of the lmg's from the squad in that mount if the air threat
  17. No, I cannot take credit for this brilliant pun. I nearly keeled over when I say this hull of a pun. I mast say I bow to the author. He is rudder well anchored in his knowledge of puns.
  18. It is moments like this that we transcend our mindset of petty Geo-political boundaries and not remember the man as from a certain country or ideology but as a genuinely talented and good natured human being. He will be missed.
  19. Hey there, sorry that no one has replied to your post yet. I just noticed it myself. The community is very helpful but sometimes we get caught up in our own real lives and things fall through the cracks. Now on to the question. No, it is not supposed to do that. But I guess you know that already. I cannot get my copy to replicate that error. So that seems to indicate there is a fault with your files. How about patches? Do you have any of them installed and where they activated in the correct order? All I know about the patches is what is indicated in their release notes. Some correc
