    NAPOLEONIC TACTICAL WARGAME - MARENGO 1800 I learned about this one few days ago. A short video explaining combat https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-e2iSj3YXxc&feature=youtu.be The kickstarter campaign https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1229152218/napoleonic-tactical-wargame-marengo-1800?ref=8sos7r&token=1c694f88
  2. In Chad the French AML-90 destroyed a bunch of Libyan T-55 in the 80's. Israeli ones also took down some Egyptian T-54 / 55 (at least 13 confirmed) during the 6 day war and few Jordanian M-48. So the 90mm was not so bad against Russian early post WW2 tanks.
  3. Six months after, 2 images to show us the wonderful work and great progress from Microprose. They are on the course to beat Duke Nuken Forever !

    There was a one hour podcast with the team of Flashpoint about the work in progress (release expected in Q1/Q2 2020), new timeline, the new IA in the game, the future with maybe a middle east theater..... https://www.armchairdragoons.com/podcast/mentioned-in-dispatches-s3e6-on-target-simulations-flashpoint-campaigns/

    OnTargetSimulations is working on new wargame engine , the Cold War engine . Their next PC wargame will be Southern Storm the sequel of Flashpoint Germany. From the website: This will be Cold War 1980s in Southern Germany and will include the US, USSR, West-German, British, French, East-German, Czechoslovakian, and Canadian forces. Players will fight battles and campaigns over 40 different maps with a wide array of Cold War equipment from the eight nations. That equipment included aircraft, helicopters, tanks, IFVs, APCs, mobile and fixed SAMs, self-propelled and towed artillery and rocket launchers, command vehicle, recon vehicles, many flavors of infantry, and others.

    Not so much effort, the TacView option was asked by the Pro users some years ago. For me it's not useful since: it's only real-time (unlike the Pro version) with God view the 3D models are based on free models so they are only few (only 2 volunteers are converting the 3D models) each 3D model is about 100 to 800Kb so if you have a lot of units in a scenario it can take a lot of memory. Did you see this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ooG9waUiWk
  10. From shrapnel games BCT Commander (based on JANUS) used to train battalion level officer. Matrixgames Command Modern Naval Air Operation (name is changed to CMO in the next release) , the pro version is in use by many military orgs. HPS simulation Decisive Action . It was the only wargame that put my Pc on the knee. Resolution time was between 3 to 12 hours! They also have Future force uses mainly for logistics and force management.
  11. 2 hours video at the Gernan Panzer Museum
  12. The Great Autoloader Debate. What are the pros? Are the cons all that bad? Where do we go from here?
  13. Microprose will only do games and not simulations, the "simulations" from the late 80 early 90's we played at the time, are considered Midcore now when compared to real sims (SB Pro , DCS, ....). They seem to have a lot of projects and want to deliver soon (hope it's not vaporware or games like Duke Nuken Forever 1997-2011). So they will go after games like Arma. Steel Beasts has nothing to worry about. Even with a big team they didn't have the knowledge of EsimGames (unless they buy the company) PS: If this thread about the come back of MP is to sensitive, you can delete it.
  14. Francois Verlinden wrote a book on the M133 and variants https://www.amazon.ca/Warmachines-No-2-M113-A2-M106-A2-M5777/dp/9070932199 And other walk around http://www.redleg2scale.com/walkaround gallery/M577.html http://www.masterminiatures.it/walk/m577.php With inside view http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Sections&file=index&req=viewarticle&artid=3506
  15. I didn't see Armageddon's song by Andy Farman (or it didn't show up in the search). It's a 5 books series (6 if we count the prequel during the Vietnam war) not focused on tanks but there is some"tank" action. The series depict the WW III see by the eyes of multiple characters all over the world. They die quite quickly for most of them since the war is brutal.
  16. From the Microprose website https://www.microprose.com/
  17. 2 officers died. One a French Adjutant Mariotti (FMLM) in Lettin Halle in 1984 - his vehicle was rammed by a Stasi Ural 375 (2 French NCO were also badly wounded during this incident) and and Major Nicholson (USMLM), one year later in Ludwigslust. He was shot and left bleeding when he exited his vehicle near a soviet base by a sergeant just because he saw an American officer near his sentry post and panicked. (you could read the story https://usmlm.us/) A lot of others members of the ALT were wounded, beaten during those days while the allied never physically assaulted ant soviet one, the detained and released them after few hours of hospitality. There is an excellent book based on interview of UK, French and US officers involved in RDA "countryside photo safari" during the cold war. "Secrets of the Cold War: US Army Europe's Intelligence and Counterintelligence Activities Against the Soviets During the Cold War" by L. McCaslin. Published by Helion and Company.
  18. A real APFSDS never used in the original packaging signed by Ssnake.
  19. For those who didn't follow the game industry news, there was a big announcement this week : Microprose is back on the market https://www.microprose.com/ The CEO of Mircroprose is David Lagettie , he is also the boss of TitanIM who develop Titan Vanguard http://titanim.net/www/ so if he use his software engine to develop games, they could look like:
  20. Message To Observer. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_discipline
  21. Hall effect potentiometer and arduino card and a little coding.
  22. There is some control handles on ebay. You just have to figure the connections. https://www.ebay.com/itm/TANK-LEOPARD-FIRING-GUN-COTROLLER-GUNNERS-STICK-HANDLE-CONTROL-HYDRAULIC-REXROTH-/172976831998
