Bailed out BFIST crew

Recommended Posts

In a recent game I lost an elite BFIST to an artillery strike.  The crew survived but is out of C2 as it does not carry any communication device.  However, the bailed out crew is still able to call in accurate artillery strikes in less then 5 minutes.  This is happening in the context of medium EW against the US side.  Is this realistic?

Thank you,

No, but it is a game play simplification. In the WW2 titles the ability to call arty without a radio is meant to simulate field telephones. They are not directly modelled so are abstracted to allow anyone with the skills to call artillery even if the are out of radio coms. Having the same thing in CMBS is probably debatable but that is where it comes from.
