  1. You do realise you have destroyed the British Army from within; Sgt: "Perkins what the hell are you doing? You were supposed to be on patrol 10 minutes ago!" Perkins: "Err yep.... be right with you sarge... just got to split off this scout team, give them a hunt command" Sgt: "Perkins get your backside in gear!" Perkins: "Yep yep, just calculating the turn.... just got to quickly watch this replay" Sgt: 'PERKINNNNSS!" Seriously though, really interesting to see this. Well done.
  2. Ha love it, a great idea to get our attention. I am now invested in my small kampfgruppe - charge them forwards to crush the red savages! Fast moves to Jagermeister all round!! Err on second thoughts I've just remembered that never works....so umm...yep, just keeping them in reserve for now is probably a better idea. 😜
  3. Ha, but my tanks don't fire their guns! The video clips above are from the that AAR.
  4. Ha, I've been away for a while and I need the practice before I release another AAR 👍
  5. Perhaps, here's a vid showing the T34's turret and what it's tracking; https://youtu.be/VZmwNS9bdY0
  6. Thanks @MOS:96B2P, you have eagle eyes! Yes, however the commander only changes from Spotting to Aiming once a second Panther comes into view to the left of the first one. It's this second Panther that he is aiming and preparing to fire at, not the first one which he can already supposedly see. It's hard to tell from the angle of the video, but the T34's turret never points towards the first Panther which is spotted from the start of the turn, but it does point towards the second Panther moving up the hill.
  7. @Bulletpoint, ok great, then it does look like 'a thing'. The only thing I noticed although I have no idea if it's connected is that the T34 in the original replay went from Ok to Cautious to Nervous due to one of it's other platoon members being destroyed by the Panther. (This didn't happen in the replay where the target command was used because the Panther was destroyed by the T34 before it could take out the other platoon member.) So one thing to rule out (or in) would be if this something that is seen more often in units that are going through morale state transitions that turn.
  8. This thread and @Bulletpoint's topic has struck a chord with something I witnessed recently in the Red Thunder scenario 'Getting Ugly'. As is usually my style I explain it best in a vid; https://youtu.be/IpgBxu8xhkE To me it seems like there is an issue unless someone is able to offer an alternative plausible explanation. Cheers.
  9. Welcome back to the game. Split your squads into fireteams and scout teams. Use the scouts to find the enemy locations. Basically they'll get shot at and hopefully you'll gain a contact location when that happens. Amass firepower on the enemy locations as quickly as possible. Engagements are won by the side that can bring the largest amount of firepower to bear quicker than the other side can both in terms of volume and caliber. Get to know the terrain. Each type of terrain has advantages for some units and disadvantages for others. Locate areas which give good cover & concealment and offer good lines of site towards the enemy. These areas can be considered key terrain. Be patient! It's easy to get carried away in the moment to try and build on a gain, but there will be another enemy nearby that you haven't seen yet who will make you pay for being too hasty.
  10. @MOS:96B2P & @Sgt.Squarehead I don't frequent this thread very much as I don't play SF2. All the images in the vid are from the demo. However looking at the content you guys are uploading, I can't help think that this track would have worked great with a vid for that. Not sure you would agree though Sgt 😉
  11. Cheers bud. It's a nice idea but I've got to be careful with that. Each vid I make with a soundtrack from a well know artist already flags as a copyright claim. That's no big deal as the owners of the rights can either monetise or ban the vid in some countries. Sometimes they do nothing and I've had all 3 outcomes. With this vid though I've also copied the style of the music video and if it was used to advertise a product I could end up with a copyright strike which is a bit more serious. It's why this vid is unlisted on my YT channel so that it can only be seen by clicking the link here and over at the FGM.
  12. The other day I heard the Beastie Boys' track Sabotage which I haven't heard for years and I thought to myself 'that would be a good accompanying track to a Shock Force 2 montage'. So I took some inspiration from the track's video and put this together. See what you think.
  13. @Howler thanks, this is a good example of one of those times when having squads or sections split all the time may not be the most beneficial setup for the situation. By recombining the 2 detachments you averaged out their morale states which allowed the unit to stay in the fight and prevent this flank from failing.
