    For many reasons, I think CM:CW is going to be a huge hit. Very, very cool stuff! 😎
    To help celebrate, I thought I'd post a pic of something the forum might get a kick out of:


     
    I bought this at the army surplus store at the dawn of the 80s when I was a kid. It's the last remnant of what was once a full, if rather eclectic uniform. Even had WWII-style leggings. All lost to the sands of time, except for this baby.  Spent many wonderful hours playing army with friends (who also had uniforms from the surplus store) out in the country wearing it.

    I remember they had a box of rank patches and camo fabric scraps at the register when I paid. So, I bought one of the patches and sewed it on (looks like a little kid did it, doesn't it!). I always wore the fabric scraps as sun protectors for my neck ala Japanese soldiers of WWII. Never got around to sewing the edges to keep them from fraying.
    I'm not sure of the production dates, but I'd guess they fall right within CM: CW. 🙂

    No.
    The man said he didn't have the tiger with the henschel turret and I replied that it might be because he doesn't own market garden.
    The problem is that the tiger with the porsche turret isn't available in quick battle.

    I know everybody is excited and would like to know what is next after the Base Game... believe me we are all excited too!
    As far as follow-on modules go.. yes several are planned, but what they are specifically we will keep to ourselves until after the game is released.  For now the focus must stay on the base-game for us, but feel free to conjecture and dream, I enjoy those threads, but we won't be confirming or denying anything until after this one is on the street.
    Just so you guys know that we aren't ignoring you in those discussions, we are trying to stay focused and not get sidetracked so we can deliver this thing in time.
    Cheers, Bil

    RPGs also come in various flavours - the RPG-18 for instance is essentially a Russian version of the LAW.  I think therefore we're getting tied up in nomenclature.  If you boil the thing down to the essentials, RPGs are manportable short-ranged weapon systems that can be carried by a single combatant in which a rocket comes out of one end of a tube and exhaust gases from the other end and have a reasonable chance of knocking out a static armoured vehicle up to 500m and a moving one at 300m.  The Charlie G, LAW, Panzerfaust etc which were, and still are, widely deployed in NATO forces are all exactly the same when viewed from that perspective.  Therefore there is nothing particularly uniquely Russian/Soviet about the concept of having such a weapon system.

    Depends on the specific weapon, but something like a LAW or AT-4 is just as simple to aim and fire as an RPG. Same with the SMAW and Gustav as well. They use the same simple iron sight and trigger/button to fire concept as the RPG.

    Part of it is conception. The RPG, like the Ak series, is just a very prolific weapon system.
    The US has operated a number of equivalent handheld AT weapons since the introduction of the RPG, such as the M72 LAW, the AT-4, the SMAW, and the Carl Gustav. The Gustav being the closest in concept to the RPG. Disposable launchers tend to be pretty cheap, especially the LAW and are very similar in effect to the RPG. IIRC the Army is actually expanding its use of the Carl Gustav, which can fire different warheads (like the RPG) and can fire many warheads out of a single launcher without wearing it down (also like the RPG).
    The javelin is a different type of handheld AT weapon, seeing as its guided. It is more related to an ATGM than an RPG. 
    Not a bad question at all. I'm sure many others have wondered the same thing.
