  1. CMCW in '79 is like fighting the Germans in late WWII. Except this time the Americans don't have superior numbers on their side while fighting tanks that are pretty immune to frontal hits. Even early TOWs don't reliably kill T64s/72s. H
  2. This. I've been searching the TO&E for seeing eye dogs for my M60A1 unbuttoned TCs when fighting at night. Alas, they die to T62s w/o ever seeing what killed them. H
  3. Tube artillery cluster munitions (USA) don’t do a very good job of tank killing. They are much more effective at destroying BMPs and BTRs, and they do make the tanks button up and degrade subsystems. OTOH, in the direct fire realm, Mk19s take a lot of rounds (side hits) to kill a tank but they do seem to blind them pretty quick. H
  4. I dunno, it's typical Soviet life. When you have ration coupons for meat, the store does't have meat. When the store has meat, you're out of meat coupons... Welcome to the future, New Soviet Man! H
  5. I'd like breaching capabilities and would love to see an easier to implement vehicle prepared position as well that doesn't need the map editor. H
  6. The previews of coming attractions was great. That movie reminds me of Mad Max except for the quality of the acting, the special effects, the plot, and the budget. H
  7. If I'm playing the Soviets they need to banzai charge with their RPGs and stab the tank to get a kill. If I'm playing the Americans then RPGs are devastatingly accurate out to 900m. H
  8. Thanks! His articles are usually top notch. H
  9. What were they thinking with that design? We heard you like turrets so we put a turret on your turret... H
  10. After the central front in Europe that's my #1 wish. The Arab-Israeli were a grab bag of everyone's equipment and the lessons learned there drove tactics for a generation. H
  11. M48s have the same fixed sprocket problem. H
  12. Anyone else notice that the left drive sprocket on the M60 doesn’t rotate? The right one is normal. H
  13. I keep thinking the Leopard 2 was later but Wikipedia says the first deliveries were in ‘79. H
  14. BAOR gets me Chieftains with the 120mm rifled gun, West Germany gets me Leopard 1s and Marders. Either way I’d buy both. H
