CM Cold War takes place on the cusp of big changes happening to both the American and Soviet armies. The arrival of Abrams and Bradley changes the nature of the fight in Europe. Also in this time fram

Some great shots taken by @George MC featuring the T-80: And a bonus shot of an M577 in the Fall:

Hi all, really looking forward to this module. I served in BAOR from 1983 - 1988, so a little after this initial release. From my time at least i would say one of the main concerns was NBC warfare, no

Another interesting note is the M-85 50 cal. in the cupola was problematic during fighting in southeast asia.  When the crews mounted a 50 cal. outside the cupola.  In the following years we see the m-85 being used again in it's intended role... I find that somewhat interesting.

I was in the 82d then. We had already had our new Kevlar helmets for a couple years by then.

There was a Kevlar helmet on display at Ft Bragg at the 82nd Airborne museum on Ardennes St.  It was damaged from getting hit by a bullet IIRC.  Saved the paratrooper's life.

Out of curiosity, anyone know what sniper rifles would have been issued to troops in the Grenada invasion?

I do remember seeing a picture of an Army (82nd Airborne) sniper armed with an M21 rifle in an old osprey booklet about Operation Urgent Fury. Cannot comment on the accuracy of this representation.

I was just thinking, I don't recall seeing ICM artillery shells on any wish lists people had posted in such threads, but it certainly is one of the most important elements to add to post WWII combat IMHO.

Canister or Beehive rounds are terrifying, and yes, 400m is a good number. We practiced with them in our 105 artillery battery. They would be used in an artillery battery for last ditch self defense. A battery of 6 guns firing a volley of Beehive rounds to the front will turn anything not armored out there to mince meat. Imagine an infantry company trying to assault the battery and facing 60000 flechettes flying through the air.  And then a second volley for anything still moving. 

For a tank, it could be used in assault but also as close defense if you had dismounted infantry attacking. 

Of course it you are in the artillery and ever have to use them it means that things are really, really FUBAR.
