The marked battle positions (bp) 1-11 in the overlay orders are the intention of your BN CDR to show his continuity of defenses. The real battle positions of the tanks or IFVs can deviate up to 500m! If you want to fall back with your company, you have to make a request to your BN CDR ( TRIGGER )! Follow the situation development from your neighbors ( CHATBOX ) ! Good Luck! This scenario is based on a tactical challenge during a tactical further education of the german army.
Hello Everyone, what do you guys make of these comments from an former soldier that happens to have had access to the operational manuals of the Leopard 2A1, 2A4, and 2A6: " allright LEO 2A5/6 the real protection on the turret is listed: against CE 1628mm against HEAT 2817mm TOW2 missles can pen the turrent front by 20mm thats all im going to say. the Leo2A1-4 is way weaker" - former soldier He also said that the DM53/63 is able to penetrate 900+ mm of RHAe and that the turret of a Leopard 2A5/A6 was penetrated. Any educated guesses and/or feedback on what these comments could mean would be greatly appreciated. Thanks !
