  1. The British camouflage for Sho’t Kal, of black and green bands, may make a usable proxy for Danish camouflage until something more accurate is available.
  2. Appreciate it and it's still on the cards. I've just got four 4.16x scenario updates and maybe one new (training) scenario to publish and then decks will be clear. The last update took a lot longer than planned!
  3. In light of the change of all Danish AFV crewmen in this scenario to 'US' to reflect CVC helmets worn by Danish AFV crew, I strongly recommend downloading and installing this skin from @Splash for increased immersion:
  4. It took a bit longer than a fortnight due to some substantial re-scripting to improve logic and achieve intended scenario outcomes but 'Armoured Infantry Company Attack at Rydsgard 1991 v2.0 (4.167)' is now available for download: Key changes from v1.6 include: - Scenario start time changed to 0400 to account for time and lighting system adjustments with 4.1x. - Look of all Danish AFV crew changed to 'US' to reflect CVC helmets worn by Danish AFV crews. - Substantial rebuild of Red counter-penetration and combat reconnaissance patrol (CRP) scripting and Blue scoring with clearer logic and improved modularity for ease of future updates. Enjoy!

    This is a Delta map of the default ScaniaSE Base map, with reduced bumpiness, required for the scenario 'Armoured Infantry Company Attack at Rydsgard 1991'. Assuming a default file structure, it should be installed to /ProgramData/eSim Games/Steel Beasts/maps/packages/ScaniaSE. To download this map, enter 4944440a-1975-4727-b19e-25b2e3bf2c6d as the map package into the steel beasts map tools UI.
  6. Thanks @Iarmor. Have you come across the Desert Eagle publications on Israeli vehicles? If so, how do they compare to SabinaMartin for detail and quality? Desert Eagle’s title on ‘Zelda M113 in IDF Service - Part 3 APC & TOGA’ is next on my list to buy with ‘Magach 3 - IDF Patton M48 - M48A3 in IDF Service Part 1‘ and ‘Magach 6A/B - IDF Patton M60A1 - M60A1 in IDF Service Part 3‘ potentially further down the track. I notice SabingaMartin also offers ‘Magach Tanks of the IDF, Volume 3, Magach 3 Tanks After the Six-Day War’ so, when it comes to Magach 3, I’d be keen to understand which is the better resource? As you can probably tell, my interest in Israeli armour currently centres on the more modern vehicles of the Yom Kippur War, hence Shot Kal, Magach 3 / 6 and Zelda focus.
  7. Maintaining the Israeli armour theme of the last two posts, I just finished this exceptional single volume on the Shot Kal upgrade: https://www.amazon.com/Centurion-Tanks-Shot-Alef-VOL-3/dp/098414370X/ref=cm_cr_srp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8. The title is now hard to find so I had to create a 'Want' at AbeBooks.com and wait for a copy to become available that way, which I immediately purchased. The single review at Amazon.com is mine, with a direct link here if you'd like to see what I thought: https://www.amazon.com/Centurion-Tanks-Shot-Alef-VOL-3/dp/098414370X/ref=cm_cr_srp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8#customerReviews. Bottom line, try to get a copy if you're a fan of the Shot Kal (Alef) represented in Steel Beasts, my current tank du jour.
  8. Does this make Steel Beasts a mug’s game? Either way, it’s better with two. The Sho’t Kal joins my stable. Now for my coffee!
  9. Thanks @MAJ_Fubar, appreciate your effort with the Wiki and glad I wasn't seeing things. I'll use full stop "." in future.
  10. Okay, that’ll do it; user error then. I must be getting old and my eyesight failing, I genuinely thought that was a comma key in the Wiki. Thanks for checking and confirming 😂
  11. Yes, with mils in rectangular border, not “GPSE”?
  12. In the Sho't Kal section of the SBWiki under "Tank Commander's Position F7" it mentions: "When operating the commander's observation sight, the , key activates the cupola lock, which will automatically lock the cupola in the direction of the gun after the commander moves the cupola/sight in the direction of the gun. Once locked, it can be unlocked by pressing , again." When I access the commander's observation sight I can press and hold or press and release the comma "," key and the cupola does not "automatically lock the cupola in the direction of the gun after the commander moves the cupola/sight in the direction of the gun." Does anyone else experience this or do I have a unique set-up that may influence the result (I shouldn't, I'm using the mouse to slew the cupola / sight and comma "," key on the keyboard). Curious if it's something I'm doing, an error in the SBWiki or a bug? Cheers
