    New Arma 3 map

    There's good tank country on South Eastern Altis.
  2. Howdy guys, I put together a vid of the 56th Stryker Brigade's recent rotation to NTC, Between their various vids and some good footage off my sons helmet cam. Gives a good idea of a typical rotation.
  3. Not every married couple can achieve acceptable crew coordination.
  4. If you are dealing with Javelins, don't plan on one man carrying more than one missile. So if you have a 2 man javelin team, its two missiles.
  5. Nice! Passed on to my son who deploys to NTC soon.
  6. I can attest that we have had numerous DCS multiplayer sessions in our group where Combined Arms is incorporated. Many misisons are Huey missions where we insert troops and then command them to assault various objectives as we insert more troops or run CAS for them. IN this way an entire campiagn is fought over mutliple sessions with meaningful battles on the ground which we can support from the air. Sometimes someone will be a TACP, though we seldom actualy fight inside the tanks, they are nowhere near as awesome as Steelbeasts. It is a great of wargaming and flight simming combined. Los
  7. I took it up for a quick spin in an SU25T. Very beautiful. Warning: The trees can kill you now.

    Wargames

    Continuing with my Tannenberg Battle replays.... This first one is 1914:The Cossack's are Coming by BRO games. After taking a couple days to get it ready playing it with teh space allotted was difficult, as it's a complex game and I was just learning it. The rules are a bit dense to get through but I like the scale and various aspects of it.After a few "cat" attacks I decided to shelve it till my new Dining room/Secret gaming table is complete. Currently I am playing Tannenberg by Schroeder Wargame publishing. This is theh introductory game of Der Weltkreig Series. It plays quicker, units are divisions and brigades. I liked it enough that I bought the rest of the games in the series (He does all of WW1 at the division level.) Meanwhile I am listening to this on Audible: https://www.audible.com/pd/History/Collision-of-Empires-Audiobook/B07884Z438?ref=a_a_search_c3_lProduct_1_1&pf_rd_p=e81b7c27-6880-467a-b5a7-13cef5d729fe&pf_rd_r=M6Q09JYTXTDNC0CFTAXM& Collision of Empires, which is a perfect companion to a wargamer's exploration of Tanneberg and WW1 Eastern Front.

    Another good one would be Air vs Armor, by West End Games. This is a highly regarded gem. Units are companies.I have played a few turns ayears back and want to get this back out on the table.

    Our gaming group (DCS, Arma, Steelbeasts) prefer to tie in our activities into overall campaigns. What do you guys think would be a good wargame to tie in to Steel Beasts? Maybe company or bn-sized maneuver units with a setting on the central front. I have been developing a Vassal Module based on Nato Division Commander as one option , though the piece of terrain around Marburg doesn't appear to have a counterpart in any Steelbeasts map.

    Also past few days I have been playing A Victory Complete. The Battle of Tannenberg, August 1914. (I enjoy WW1-based wargames) A good game by MMP.
