    I did! It was fantastic, though pretty much all the food was.

  4. Hello all, In about a month or so, I'm going on something of an exchange to the Germany Army to spend some time with them and work on my German a bit. I don't quite yet have a sponsor over there, I only know the unit I'm going to, which is a Panzergrenadier battalion. As I'd like to not show up completely unfamiliar with the German Army, I was wondering if anyone could tell me the basics of how a modern Panzergrenadier battalion is organized and subdivided. All I can seem to find online are WW2 organizations and 80's era organizations. As for the question about equipment, I know that the primary combat vehicles I'm likely to see are the Puma and Marder, but I was wondering if there are any Leopards included with a PzGren battalion. Any knowledge would be appreciated.

    CCTT training

    Thanks for the advice. CTLT is probably the summer training that I'm looking forward to the most. Besides that, I only have CLDT (14 days in the field) and my leadership detail to do. Hopefully I can frontload all of that next summer and get the summer before my Firstie year to be all leave.

    CCTT training

    Well now that's definitely news to me. Honestly, I'll probably end up doing something like ADA for my CTLT.

    Is that CTLT you are talking about? I did hear a story about how some cow (junior) was an actual PL for three weeks because his host PL had to step out for some reason.

    CCTT training

    As a part of USMA Cadet Field Training, I conducted a exercise in an M1A1 SA mock-up trainer, serving as the TC. Pretty good time! Only managed to get one photo, though.

    WARNORD

    Thank you all for your replies. I'll probably be asking this same question next year when I have to brief an OPORD hehe.

    WARNORD

    Hello all, got an assignment coming up where I have to read an OPORD, then make and present a WARNORD in fifteen minutes. Any prior service members have an opinion on what's important in the OPORD that should go into the WARNORD? To give some background, the OPRORD we are using describes a platoon-level attack, and we need to make a WARNORD intended for a squad. I've mostly gone over the ADRPs and class-provided power points covering WARNORDs, just looking for personal opinions/how to read the important parts of an OPORD quickly. Thanks all. Jazjar
  11. Is the dutch organization for tanks accurate? It says that the company is organized into six tanks with a command tank but doesn't specify how the company is divided into platoons, and isn't six tanks a bit small for a tank company?
  12. This got me interested in the acceleration question, how fast does one tank get to a certain speed than another etc. and I decided to test the M1 family on flat, green ground. Since I noticed 0-20kph happened in a blink of an eye for all of them, I decided to use 20-45kph. ( I wanted to use 50 but the SEP didn't even go that fast. ) M1: 9.2s M1(IP): 9.4s M1A1: 11.8s M1A1 (HA): 14.3s M1A2 (SEP): 16.6s Do take these with an uncertainty of ~0.2 seconds, my reaction time. Hopefully I will soon get the chance to compare this with the Leopard.
  13. These are great, the only ambiguity they leave (I have been through them) is in how the commander designates targets and the specifics of operating the TOGS. Other than that, I love them.
  14. This is one of my favorite missions. never gets old for me. The trick is to butcher as much of the enemy as you can without losing too many of your units. Notice that the terrain is very European-rife with hills and the such that can be very effectively used, that is if you can get your AI to hide behind them (What Tacbat said, go MP). Just move between them, don't stay static, then artillery will get you.
  15. With Apache Longbow, just pop the radar mast up, detect ALL the attacking vehicles in the formation, cross reference with RFI to see which ones are hostile, and then take out the ZSUs, and leave the tanks defenseless.
