Quick question, I see ground mounted TOWs and crew, will we have Stinger teams to shoot at the helicopters?

Well there arleady are other man pads (RBS 70) but are you after the Stinger specifically?

To make it short - No.

Save plans! Maybe a return to the old days of tgif with scenes posted a day or 2 before hand to give co's more time to plan. I used to love taking time to plan it then ponder it, sleep on it, dream of it, have the ghost of patton appear in that dream and give His 2 cents then wake up and change it a bit more. Then 10 min max at game time to give out orders and Go.

About the PLN files: I cannot really remember how that worked when I played the original SB. But...can players share those saved plans and upload them for others? It would be interesting to see how different users plan for the same mission.

Yeah, it'll be good for getting TGIF started faster.

They are files like any other, so you can do with them what you can do with other files, too. Like, sharing them. :)

News of the day:

The PLN Files Are Back!

This is THE single reasons I will now be upgrading. I have very limited "game" time and planning AND executing was just too much. Now...I'm back in control. A great improvement as a learning aid too boot.

There are now 24 tutorials for the CV90/35-DK, yes.

I have to say though that the CV90/35 is still somewhat work in progress. The fire control system is settled, but there's still more to do with the Vehicle Information System and the multi-function panels. Not too much will change with this coming PE release, but the version after next will expand these two instruments.

I was thinking the same...NZDF or CF? Crewable it seems. Nice! :)

Well last time I checked the Kiwis were intending to spend some development money on a LAV III model for their Pro version.

Can't see a silver fern in the usual place though (or the "How do you rate my driving?" sticker on the back)

Unsure what the Kanuks are up to.

An opportunity for an ANZAC battlegroup perhaps?

Well I was planning to incorporate them into the next (or battle after next) battle for the ADF campaign.

Was basically waiting for this vehicle to migrate from the Pro space to the Pro PE space.

The next battle is a delay so I think they'll make Battle 4 (a C-ATK / advance) to reflect the reinforcement from across the ditch.

If I go for the later option it can give time for 2.620 to bed in and perhaps use any 2.62x patch (if its needed).

It's not THAT different from an ASLAV, although there are some changes. Better armor, slight differences in the fire control system - but no too difficult to figure out if you're familiar with the ASLAV-25 already.

Well finally a vehicle with dismounts and a decent gun. Aslav-25 no dismounts, aslav-pc no gun.

What about the CV90 family?

Aslav-25 no dismounts,

Yep no room left after the fridge goes in there.

aslav-pc no gun.

Exactly, don't want to give the dismounts a good enough gun to disable the vehicle with the fridge in it. :)

Kiwis don't need a fridge as its all around them outside.

All good having a NZ LAV III but where is the 6x6 Pinzgauer (armoured and unarmoured variants) to go with it (FO wagon, etc.)?

Pity.

Seemed a pretty flash truck (albeit with a basic fit out). Looked like it kept up with the LAVs pretty well and where it didn't, the guys on board could just man handle it through the obstacle.

And it had a cigarette lighter attachment built in so I could recharge my Sat 'phone from them. :)

Kiwis reinforcing the Aussies on our home turf, that means we're really in trouble then. Thank God it's not our air force requiring reinforcement... no help there.

I do love Kiwis though, given I married one and live over here. ;-)
