  1. Hi there! Please consider me for the position of gunner or single tank commander for any remaining vehicle. if preferrred, I am also happy to direct REDFOR atgms and assets as well if you’d prefer a living, breathing enemy.
  2. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    SSnake i totally get where youre coming from. I anticipated such an answer to be honest, but i figured it was better to ask and put it out there. You dont know if you dont try after all I hope to see it eventually, but not at the detriment of the things you have prioritised. the reason i wanted the t64 (besides the fact its an iconic tank) is the ATGM from the barrel facility. i think it would add a new tactical dimension to your OPFOR - both AI and crewed. the only reason id prefer crewed (other than the obvious one of us driving them and commanding them ourselves) is that the AI doesnt react as fast as id like to threats. If thats realistic, fair enough. But hey, they call this a wish list for a reason...
  3. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    I totally understand. After all, it is a wish list... if someone (not me - I’m not clever enough) were to submit user-made interiors for your approval would this help at all? Just wondering if the fans can crowd source their way into the tanks they want a la FSX. i realise here would be several QA related issues with this, and I certainly don’t want your inbox flooded with “offers”. But I know the PE crowd will always take a back seat to the actual military contracts (rightly so and fair enough), and older tanks like this, while greatly appreciated, are less and less likely to show up for the reasons mentioned. Hypothetically, If the talented modellers in the community can build it, would you be tempted to work towards integrating it(acknowledging it as not officially supported of course)?

    It also makes sense for an 80s era “red tide” or fulda gap scenario. The t-64 was fast, low profile and with its barrel fired atgm’s in the later upgraded models, deadly from a distance. It would’ve represented the cream of the crop and the very tip of the spear for a soviet advance. The t72’s would’ve followed closely behind as the backbone of the advance too.
  5. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    I’m sure it’s been mentioned to death, but I’d really like a t-64 variant of some description to pair with the t72’s. That or a t80. Is this an issue with modelling or is this is a contract/legal issue?
  6. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    All I want is some cockpitted version of a t-64. As far as I'm concerned that would compete the set - especially as it could allow (with minor changes) a T80 as well, and would at barrel fired ATGM's to the equation
  7. Operation Scorpion Mission 3

    Cobrabase amazes and astounds us all with his follow-on from operation Scorpion part 1&2. Voice work and background noises are a fantastic and immersive experience, and although i contributed in a small part to the voice work, I felt happy to play the scenario personally, whether i turn up or not, for the simple reason that its a damn good one! Expect a degree of randomness as the full weight of the force will come along from slightly differing routes and concentrations, so dont just pull the same FASCAM trigger every time. This makes an already fantastic scenario highly replayable and fun. I have posted my own LP on YouTube for those who want to see it themselves - check me out at youtube.com/ghostdog688 if you want. But do yourself a favour and just try it first. The community of voice actors did a fantastic job and it has been expertly crafted together. Cobra, when you read this: Great work, but once you wrap up the Op, you'll leave us all wanting more. Hope you're prepared for the huge demand for more missions - perhaps do a similar campaign from the Soviet POV??
  8. Operation Scorpion missions 1&2 up soon.

    Do you perhaps mean BDRM'S? I can't think of a scout BTR that I came across. Not to speak on cobra'S behalf but as I understand it the latest versions have an end trigger... as for the briefing I found it adequate, but we can agree to disageee there
  9. Operation Scorpion missions 1&2 up soon.

    You have now learned why deconflicting artillery from air assets is an important consideration give the mission another read and another go, playing it as suggested above by the mission designer. as for more detail on the briefing - what more do you need to know? It's a Soviet advanced guard - a heavily armed recon. If you don't know what that's supposed to look like, google is your friend, but if you get mega-stuck, PM me and I will try to find you some resources and answers. Please bear in mind that this mission is all about a realistic interpretation of what this would look like - a platoon leader in this situation would be well aware of what he would be dealing with, and the briefing reflects this. Given that the scenario is that you have barely rolled off the airfield to defend the area, the briefing is probably about right in terms of available intel - you'd probably be lucky to have an annotated map to be fair!
  10. Can't wait - my next day off is tomorrow so I'll be playing that on a live stream as soon as it's downloaded
  11. It was a pleasure workin the voice work in here, and I look forward to working with you on mission 4. As always, once the tastings complete, I'll play the hell out of it and probably frustrate the living hell out of you on the live stream. Dont worry, this time I'll know who TORCH is also, I'm not the god of BMS. That title goes to Krause - he taught me all I know, and most of what I forgot too!
  12. Operation Scorpion missions 1&2 up soon.

    I was wondering how long you would wait for the t-64 onslaught... I hope you packed us full of SABOT!
  13. Operation Scorpion missions 1&2 up soon.

    Thanks to your mention of the map used, I found Alfield for my own scenario! to be fair, I wouldn't have minded overly if they had engaged me with DShKM, at least I would've found them and gotten the hell out lol. I had the chopper set to scout patrol, so it should have bugged out on contact.

    Perhaps infantry accuracy can be raised or lowered by the shape of the terrain, grass height and distance from solid cover? Some examples: infantry in a building engage infantry in the open (infantry in hard cover get a bonus on accuracy for fighting from a prepared position with decent cover, and infantry with little to no cover get penalties for having no solid cover to hide behind and die easier due to lack of cover), or infantry near a wall compared to infantry in a grassy field (infantry behind wall get a partial bonus to aiming from low cover, but the slight concealment of the tall grass negate some of this etc). this means the degree of "wargaming" going on is affected by distance and the amount of nearby cover (LOS could help with this) accuracy goes on a sliding scale, tending to 95% at point blank distance, but decreasing over distance, moreso if cover/concealment comes into play. i know this isn't going to completely satisfy those that want to pick up a rifle, but it helps somewhat surely?

    My LP the sound production was amazing - the little details like keeping the rumble of battle going on keeps the immersion going through the mission, really feels like I'm stuck in West Germany here in Cold War gone got! what map did this terrain use? I'm guessing Fulda? I decided to hold back the ITV'S, using the Bradley's and M1's to the middle and the artillery to counter battery theirs. Thank god we don't have counter-battery radar implemented for real or I'd have problems!
