  7. Kanium Sunday 26th FEB "Wietzendorf" By Kingtiger When: Sunday 26th FEB 1900 UTC Where: Kanium TS ( teamspeak3.i3d.net:10077 ) World Clock: World Clock WIETZENDORF 1989.04.10 04.00AM 1) SITUATION: a) Area of Operations 1) Terrain: Forested area with open fields around it, small hills and small lakes crossing the area with a small river going NORTH to SOUTH and cuts through the AO with a mix of different bridges spanning from 10t bridges to 110t bridges. 2) Weather: Around +8 to +9C during the morning with heavy clouds and light rain, later during the morning the temperature are expected to rise to around +15C and clouds cracking up to medium cloud and some sun. LOS are estimated to be around 2km and improving when the rain stops. b) Enemy: Enemy composition has so far been T-72 and BMP-2 with BRDM in recon and Anti-tank role. This mean its vehicles without TIS but with ATGM’s can reach for as long a they can see. Most likely COA is that they are resting and refueling in WIETZENDORF and will attack West as soon as they are ready. Most dangerous COA is that the enemy initiates the attack West before we manage to destroy them. c) Own: Our Brigade has been in heavy contacted this week and has been withdrawn to Division reserve to recover and regain strength for further operations. Our battalion's losses has been fairly light with only 15-20% losses and therefore we have the priority tasking of Division reserve. A small KampfGruppe (Combat team) has been pulled together for this mission but did not have time to fuel and bomb up so we are lacking on both ammo, fuel, food and water, which logistics will have to fix to us later on. The infantry battalion (On map Juliet and Kilo COY with Lima COY eliminated around WIETZENDORF) have sealed of NORTH and SOUTH of WIETZENDORF and will take over the frontline once WIETZENDORF are taken. Right now Juliett COY are holding SUROIDE area and blocking to the EAST and SOUTH where they have destroyed a BRDM in the minefield. They have put out a hasty minefield on the road leading to WIETZENDORF and marked it with mine warning signs on friendly side of it. Kilo COY down to 2 platoons are holding south of WIETZENDORF around MARBOSTEL and have not been in any contact last 12 hours. Friendly (AI) recon (R2) are positioned to observe roads leading EAST of WIETZENDORF and have not spotted anything since they arrived 6 hours ago. Both companies have been under sporadic artillery fire so the enemy know their location. TOE Kampfgruppe: HQ: CO,XO and 1 FO (leo2A4) 3 x 3 Tank platoons (Leo2a4) 1 CSS platoon of 1 ARV and 1 MED 2 x 3 Mech Platoons (Marder 1A3) 2 x 2 Recon troops (Luchs 2A2) 1 x 4 CSS Platoon (2 Ammo and 2 MED trucks) 2 x 3 155 Battery with HE, SMK and ICM (off map) 2) MISSION: Attack to destroy enemy forces in WIETZENDORF. 3) EXECUTION: Concept of the Operation: Attack along ROUTE BERLIN to destroy enemy forces in WIETZENDORF. Thereafter, defend REDDINGEN until Infantry forces can relieve you in place. Commanders intent: Purpose. The purpose of this operation is to destroy the enemy capability to attack further WEST and to close the gap in the frontline EAST of WIETZENDORF. Key tasks: 1) Attack along ROUTE BERLIN 2) Destroy enemy forces in WIETZENDORF 3) Establish defensive positions around REDDINGEN, oriented East 4) BPT conduct a relief of defensive positions with follow-on forces End state Terrain: REDDINGEN is defended by friendly forces Enemy: Enemy forces in WIETZENDORF are destroyed Friendly: Task Force has sustained no more than 50% losses, and is ready for follow-on operations 4) SUSTAINMENT: a) Medical Tank Company have 1 APC ambulance, after that the Kampfgruppe have 2 ambulance trucks, and if worse come to worse we can move to J COY's aid station. EPOW are handled per SOP. b) Logistics Kampfgruppe never had time to refuel/restock ammo so 2 ammo trucks from Battalion CSS has been attached to bomb up when there is time for it. Fuel is not available at this time and will be brought up when its available together with food and water. The tank Coy have done a cross loading between tanks so all tanks average 20 APFSDS and 6 HEAT at the moment. 5) COMMAND AND SIGNALS: Per Kanium SOP: CO = 66 XO = 65 P = Indirect fire/FO A1,A2 etc. In platoon A11 Plt leader, A12 wingman, A14 Plt Sgt. A = Tanks B = Mech R = Recon H = Logistics 6) SCENARIO DETAILS: a) Priority TRP: there are 5 of them that can be moved during planning phase, once game started it's to late.

  8. But it just diddent work all the way from 1987 right up to 2000-2002 when HK fixed it I tried it in Osnabrück in 1993 and it was so bad that they had a special drill to make sure the bolt was all the way forward and they could only use single fire. So i understand perfectly why it has a bad rep when a rifle is so unreliable that it only works sometimes and you have to make a drill to make sure it fires the next time. It might work now but it sure as hell diddent back then and worse nobody seem to be doing anything about it for 7 more years. Plus the LSW are also out as a support weapon that just further adds to the bad rep. MD

  10. you are velcome to join us in multiplayer we even have 1 tonight but would recommend coming on our TS during today to get set up so we have time to explain how our coms setup is made as we use multiple channels etc.... Most people hang out 3/4 of an hour before the game to shoot the shit and for PLT leaders to get their orders and ask questions to the CO. We have room for you if you like in a PLT with 2 of the guys who help new people in. Best regards MD
  11. Manninglist updated We could still use a FO and there are room in Tanks and we can make room in Mech INF.
  12. That's fine you gave a peep and then all is good. Have fun at work MD
  13. That depends on your OS on your PC and how you have set it up. If you like me have windows 10 then the easy mode is to open the start menu / Esim Games / Shared scenario folder / Then if you put it in either Multi or single. Then when you want to start the scenario you pick the scenario option from either offline or multiplayer and go into the folder you put it in. If you have a older OS you go into "your user" / Documents / esim games / Steelbeast/ My scenarios/ downloads and save the scenario there and then again open either offline or multiplayer then chose /my scenarios /downloads then pick the name If you are using windows 10 and are using one drive it gets a little more complicated but i assume you don't do that as most users don't. Hope this helps: Best regards MD
  14. I think that's the whole reason that the ENG got an M2 and not just a Battle taxi like the Fuchs/Fox or M113 MD
