  1. Welcomed back TAC197 and did a undermanned run of the new, improved SOSRA scenario. I'll amend this a little bit more to: a. Give Blue a CO vehicle b. Plug a hole in the final defensive belt.
  2. That's preety much the norm, I'm afraid. A revolving pool of people with some making it for some nights, and others for other nights. The goal is to get them all to turn up at the same time.
  3. T72-M not firing really

    I'm assuming the fire control settings on the T-72s are "Fire at Will" as opposed to say "return fire"?
  4. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    Hence my comment about the only time I've used a compass, being when in the desert. In that case, just revert to the currently existing vehicle / view orientation icon in the bottom right hand corner - assuming the scenario designer hasn't disabled it.
  5. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    I think primarily to satisfy people (non military users) on this list. Sure and that's why I'm pretty sure that we at least as a Defence user haven't asked for it - because we don't see a need for it. Not to say some other country wont though.

    Without re-opening the protractor conversation, no it isn't. You navigate in a AFV by doing map to ground. There is a church on my left and a copse of trees to my right, therefore I am here and I'm facing N / S / E or W. I can refine that by lasing the church if needed to tell me exactly how far away it is, and therefore where I am. The only time I've used a compass on an AFV was a sun compass in the desert, never a magnetic one.
  7. 25mm Bushmaster STAB question

    I've made some enquiries and sent a PM to Dark about it. My information is ASLAV specific, so can not comment on the other vehicles mentioned.

    Rolling Thunder 16: a. Those who attend the entire campaign (Missions 1, 2 and 3) are authorized to wear this: b. Those who attend two complete Missions (or less) are authorized to wear this: Rolling Thunder 18: For completing all missions: For completing at least one mission:
  9. Yes that's what I thought you were after so I may email you directed as that's in the realm of sensitive TTPs. A lot will depend on what the "pre-plotted reference point" is. Is it a FPF (final protective fire) where the tubes are laid on to in between missions? That is once the message gets through, you just drop the bombs in the tube. Is it a registered target where the mortar line has to apply a correction from the FPF to the registered settings and then drop the bombs? What are the comms between the fwd unit and the BN HQ and the mortar CP? etc. What is the timeframe you are talking about? 1960s is a lot different to say the 90s or now. ...

    +1 That's all I'll say.
  11. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    I get that its a wish list, but ... 1. There is a distance measuring tool in the planning screen. 2. During execution you have a map - which has nice 1km wide boxes on it. 3. You often also have other aides like laser range finders and binoculars that help give you the distance.
  12. FYI: Blue Repair area only seems to fix Tanks. Scimitar at least parked there for well over 15min with no repair. However if I parked them next to the medic (as per normal) then at least the 15min "repair" kicked in.
  13. 4.023 FASCAM FUBAR?

    Its my sarcasm (hence why its bracketed around my response). Instead of "Its working properly, the FASCAM mines time out at 33mins and disappear" or similar I just get USER ERROR shouted at me.
