  1. There are alternative silhouettes for CM Afghanistan. If they work in CMCW you'd have different Silhouettes for most of the soviet units.
  2. I downloaded it a couple of times. The problem remained. So I guess the file ist somehow damaged.
  3. Is anyone else having trouble unpacking the patch? I keep getting an error message when I try to unzip the file. I have tried different unzipping-programs but the file won't unzip.
  4. Osprey has announced more information on the upcoming book on the panjshir Valley campaigns. Scheduled for release in late october: https://ospreypublishing.com/the-panjshir-valley-1980-86 It covers quite a large time frame so I hope it won't be to shallow. But I am still very much looking forward to this.
  5. Interesting, the battle for hill 3234 must be well-known in russia and former SU member countries. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_for_Hill_3234 The battle ist described in the Osprey duell series vdv para vs mujahedin. And there is also a user made scenario for CMA depicting it, which I have not played yet tough.
  6. The title is (as of now): The Panjshir Valley 1980–86 The Lion Tames the Bear in Afghanistan
  7. Osprey hast also announced a campaign title about the panjshir-battles that will be released at some time this year. Apparently it is due for late october.
  8. I have read the Osprey Combat version on Afghanistan. Maybe it was already mentioned here, it is out for quite some time. I liked it a lot. It is called: "Soviet Paratrooper Vs Mujahideen Fighter: Afghanistan 1979–89"
  9. Maybe not really a tactical question but what exactly was the role of Cavalry Units during that time? It is supposed to be lighter, more mobile then other armoured formations? So a kind of recon force? Yet still some Cav. Divisions also fielded MBT's.
  10. That's an impressive list. I purchased the soviet counterpart to David Isbys book on the NATO forces. It is called: "Weapons and tactics of the soviet army". So it also covers tactical aspects. The soviet way of war, so to speak. Btw quite funny to read that many westeners expected the auto- loader to be a weakness or kind of design flaw in the "new" T-64 and T-72
  11. I Just finished reading "die Schlacht im Teutoburger Wald" from Reinhard Wolters. Good factual book. Wolters ist sceptical about Kalkriese beeing the varus Battle place, btw. Don not know if it was translated into english tough. And yes, one should definitely visit the museum in Kalkriese. Was there recently, it is great.
  12. Surprised me as well. NATO forces in europe need more not less conventionell fighting capabilities.
  13. The US forces just have sooo many javelins. This weapon really creates a difference in firepower even amongst the Nato forces.
  14. Does anyone know what happened to these plans?: https://defence-blog.com/army/ukraine-to-buy-10-new-oplot-main-battle-tanks-in-2018.html According to this and wikipedia they should have around 20 BM Oplot. But not really a reliable source.
