    Trooper117 got a reaction from Amedeo in Anyone know if the BAOR is likely to be included?   
    Very excited when I heard CMCW had dropped out of nowhere and was to be included.
    As a Chieftain tank commander stationed in West Germany (Detmold) during the 80's, I was a bit deflated not to see the BAOR in the mix.
    Any hints as to what will be added down the road after it's release?

    Looking at the TOE for the base game the Americans have a Bradley and an M1... I was stationed in Germany in the early to mid 80's as a Chieftain commander. We did large exercises (FTX) with the Americans and others and I never saw them about. Their main battle tank was the M-60 at the time.

    Great little video... and a reminder just how good our combat mission games are.
    I'm pretty sure when I played this mission my casualties were quite a few more!

    You heard it here folks - there is hope for a CM 2x North Africa game.
    At least that's how I choose to interpret the highlighted portions of Steve's quote

    Thanks Mord... just got the free download for OOB WWII, played the boot camp missions. The game is really enjoyable!
    I'm going to get the Blitzkrieg, North Africa and Marines campaigns now!

    I am looking forward to that one as well.
    You should give Order Of Battle WWII a try. It's a lot of fun with just enough depth to make it interesting without bogging down in minutiae. It reminds me of Unity but a bit deeper with a different art aesthetic of course. It's free to try on Steam. You can play one scenario from each DLC if I remember correctly. I played the Pacific tutorials and had so much fun I got the DLCs a couple days later. The thing I really like about it is you can play as the Japs (starting in China), Marines, Army, Burma with the CW, then there's the Winter War as the Finns, and of course the typical stuff like Germans in North Africa, East Front, etc. Check'er out if you don't know about it, it's a great laid back beer & pretzels game.
    And if you dig ancients, I HIGHLY recommend Field of Glory II. They've made it all the way to the Viking Age as of the last DLC.

    Well, I suspect Combat Mission players are not anyone's average war-gamers . . . 😀  These games are an acquired taste for those interested in some kind of game-play tactical realism.  Battlefront supplies its high potency designer drugs to a niche audience. 
    As CMx2 is probably coming to the end of its software application life-cycle, I predict the first CMx3 title will be North Afrika sometime after 2023.  😶

    As others have said Alt + J.  A useful tool I sometimes forget about is the HOTKEYS button.  If you click on menu, in the User Interface (UI), on the bottom right of the screen additional buttons will appear.  The bottom left button is labeled Hotkeys.  The Hotkey button will bring up a list of all kinds of useful key board commands and mouse controls.

    Trooper117 got a reaction from Falaise in A Walk In The Sun...   
    I watched 'A Walk in the Sun' today, a 1945 made film about a US rifle platoon in Italy, 1943.
    I must say, I saw the film years ago, but it's still worth a watch, yes, it's typically Hollywood, but they did a good job.
    I love the different characters and the interaction within the platoon, typical army humour and griping throughout.
    Good to see how they used their tactics as well, and I guess some will find fault with it, but it is early Hollywood 
    Here's the title sequence...

    By the time CM3 comes out most of us will have kicked the bucket... not to mention the designers themselves.

    You often see that kind of logic in any of the gaming forums... ''until you fix this, I'm not buying anymore of your products''... or, ''No VR, then I won't buy this, and neither will all my friends''.
    It's the sort of thing my lad would say when he was 14... but would usually end with ''I hate you!''
