CM Wikia not current and in error


Recommended Posts

The CM Wikia has two outright errors in it that I found in the FAQ for CMBN. One is directly traceable to the version addressed: 1.10!

http://combatmission.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ_for_CMBN

"Can I fire a Bazooka / Panzerschreck / Panzerfaust / PIAT from inside a building? Edit

No for the first three in the list (Bazooka, Panzerschreck, Panzerfaust).

Yes for the PIAT, the reason being that the PIAT has a "spring mechanism" to launch the projectile from the weapon.

There has been much debate about allowing firing from inside buidlings (with some penalties) for the first three weapons, but for now at least (version 1.10), it is disallowed."

Contrary to what's stated above, the PIAT bomb isn't propelled to its target by the spring. Instead, the spring initiates the firing of the projectile from the spigot--using a kind of blank shotgun charge. When the charge detonates, off goes the bomb, and the recoil is supposed to recock the PIAT.

Bazookas, Panzerschrecks and Panzerfausts CAN now be fired from inside buildings. Risky but doable. Can't seem to find (tired, missing stuff?) the specific version in which this became possible, but it was definitely Version 2.0 or higher. Want to say 2.12.
