  1. Hello this is an AAR of my quick battle with @Oleksandr It's a Russia vs Ukraine medium size meeting engagement. I haven't played much Black Sea (I mostly play Final Blitzkrieg) and I went with what I figure would be a standard force. I have four platoons of mounted infantry, 5 T-90AMs, six mortars, a mounted grenade launcher platoon, and an igla platoon and a Tunguska for AA. I don't have a very advanced plan. Essentially move forward and see how the match develops from there. But I assume the major objective will be the main contest and the minor objectives won't b

  3. https://mwi.usma.edu/russian-ukrainian-war-understanding-dust-clouds-battlefield/ Nothing ground breaking,(or political, I believe). Still, useful for pointing out a possible Russian preference for sustained political pressure maintained by sustained military pressure. There could also be logistical/force sustainment considerations, but nothing Putin couldn't brush past if he so wished. When I started properly reading up in this nasty fight I'd initially wondered why Russia didn't go for a desert storm style strike. However it was described to me here and elsewhere, that
  4. Hey, I bought this game a couple of days ago and I really like it. The game has the best AI I've ever seen and the complexity vs simplicity is perfect, not too complicated but not too simple. Only thing I dislike is the shape of the "hexes". Are there any benefits of having squares instead of hexagons? Anyway, I'm playing the grand campaign 1938 (not sure of exact name) as axis, and so far it has gone pretty well. Countries I've conquered: Poland,France,Low Countries,Denmark,Yugoslavia,Greece,Egypt,Syria,Iraq,Iran,Sudan - All of which were conquered before the war with Russia.
  5. I am wondering if anyone else thinks the Russians are at a disadvantage. US vehicles seem to spot faster, react quicker and their APS systems seem to work nearly every time. Its getting to a point where I can always win when I play the US and always loose when I play as the Russians. It would be ok if the difference was close but Russian kit seems woefully inadequate. In nearly every respect the Russians seem disadvantaged, from infantry to armor. My experience with T90AM (APS) is bad. Their APS sucks compared to the US. I have played dozens of games where it just fails to even go off or
  6. There I was reading Yahoo, when I came across this trenchant piece called "A Close Call in the Caucasus," which appears on The National Interest website. In brief, it says there was almost a war in Nagorno-Karabakh recently (early April) and that things could still easily go sideways. It seems to me this is an area ripe for CMBS Red on Red gameplay. This is super current, since the article is from April 22, 2016! I have no idea what either side has, this piece being but a target of opportunity I encountered. http://nationalinterest.org/feature/close-call-the-caucasus-15877 Regards,
  7. BBC News recently ran an article following an interview with CINCUSAREUR LT GEN Hodges. He is concerned about Russia's ability, using interior lines, to rapidly deploy forces to Eastern Europe. Note well he's saying NATO needs to be able to do the same--on 3 days' notice. What's not said is how big that NATO force would be, but the time available to respond is eloquent on how small the dissuasion window is when it comes to countering a Russian buildup in preparation for an attack. In a March 7, 2016 DefenseNews interview, he had a lot to say about his plans, deficiencies and get-well program f
  8. In making one of my rare FB forays, I chanced upon a post I'd made detailing the remarkable, heart-warming, yet disturbing story of a group which finds and identifies the remains of a few of Russia's 4 million GPW MIAs, then passes word to their families for proper burial. Why disturbing? Read the BBC article! http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-25589709 This is a related piece, and it contains video which might not be good to view while eating, by small children or maybe at work. BBC did a full doc called "Burying the Past," and I believe the video is an excerpt. http://www.bbc.c

  10. After encountering a new Foreign Policy article while reading Yahoo, I thought this would be of interest to the readers here, as well as those who'd love to see something done so CMBS weapons can be ported over to CMSF, allowing the rapidly expanding and already intense combat actions by Russia on behalf of Syria to be simulated. http://news.yahoo.com/helicopter-putin-weapon-choice-syria-110030372.html In order to survive in a heavy MANPADS environment, Russian attack helicopter pilots, operating what are/ have been made to appear to be Syrian Mi-24 HIND attack helos, are flying unprecedentedl
