Sure - but we could all take our tinfoil hats off about Steam, military contracts et al.  The latter reminds me of those discussions when Shock Force came out ... remember those ... "It is a click fes

Happy to talk about that if you want ... I haven't seen my mother for over a year now because of the pandemic and probably won't see her until next year because of it - in fact I fear that I may

Friday afternoon and finally off video conference calls.  Gawd I both love Zoom and hate it. There are lots of reasons for delay and for those of us who have been around a while it is a constant

Concerning the central Soviet pixeltruppen in the top pic... is he carrying his platoon's soup canister on his back?

Or is that a poorly disguised flamethrower pack?

i think it's the soviet 'portable' 2way radio- they're a lot bigger than the allied or german equivalents .

In all likelihood it is a radio, yes. I just got overexcited about the possibility of a secret flamethrower.

That said... the box looks suspiciously similar to this:

Just been reading a book about Operation Columba:

Quote

The idea of using pigeons to gather intelligence was one of a number of responses to the difficulty of getting information out of Europe at the start of the Second World War. During the previous war, MI6 had employed couriers and passeurs to carry intelligence across enemy lines. It was dangerous work and many were caught and executed. The need for new means of communication led to some curious schemes, of which Operation Columba was among the more successful.

Either it's an optical illusion or those railroad tracks ...

Railroad track and stream tiles are different than the other road pieces. They fit together differently, can form broader curves and forks. But there's no X intersection pieces. because railroad tracks don't usually cross each other at right angles.

So how about it, BF? End of May 2020. Where do we stand? When can we expect the release of the CMRT module?

Good luck Aragorn2002, I asked the same a week ago. I'm still waiting the answer.

They still haven't posted for pre-orders yet so it would be several months after they started taking the pre-orders.  More than likely Fall/Winter before module comes out.

Pre-orders to release for Rome to Victory was 5 months.  For Shock Force 2 it was 4 months.  I'm thinking Christmas.  Hopefully, I will be pleasantly surprised...at Thanksgiving.
