  1. Hi to all the new guys i will be on 1 hour before game start to help you setup coms and teach you how that works as its not the way most use TS3 Best regards MD
  2. What would be more needed is a way to designate arty/Mortars to specific units so fx let a Mech Coy use their Mortars only but not the 155mm arty etc.... and have the Arty FOs used the arty only
  3. Thanks Grenny Then we only need H66 and A66 plus hopefully a FO to run the Arty

  5. Kanium Sunday 13th of November "Ystad RU" by Kingtiger For all players: From now on we will be there about 30 minutes before go time to test everything. If it isnt sorted before GO time, then we will have to start the game at the allotted time, for the benefit of all the other players. Where: Kanium TS : ts3.din-server.dk:10000 World Clock 1900 GMT (Same time as always in Europe - adjusted for Winter Time: click the time below for your local time) World clock 1900 GMT IMPORTANT NOTICE: This SB session may be recorded with video and sound and uploaded, including to a public youtube or Twitch channel. IMPORTANT NOTICE II: I suggest to all who play with us download and install Chris mappack: ChrisReb Mappack V.6 Until further notice will be working with this mappack and the official one when making scenarios. AS always, then we are running the session with the latest version of Steelbeasts. Everybody is Welcome: you don't have to belong to Kanium. We love playing with you all, the arranger and CO loves you even more if you sign up in advance 😁 Excerpts of the battalion commander's orders for... 0) PREFACE a) Time is now 250715 local time (GMT+1) b) Weather is overcast with rain showers, bound to clear up later during the day. expected LOS is 3km at best. c) Terrain is hilly and forested terrain that leads out into open farmfields. Ground is hard and the swamps are fairly dry and just slow you down, risk of bogging is low. 1) SITUATION: a) Enemy: Enemy units are T-72B3, Ulans and BMP2s together with BRDM with ATGM and AAA assets. Enemy forces ahead of us are a strong mechanized battalion offloading from RO-RO ships as we speak in YSTAD. Expected composition is 3 Mech Coys (3 Plt) with 1 tank platoon each plus 1 tank company in support. Last known enemy position is 2 troops of recce at KRISTINELUND and VASEN, 15 respectivly 10 minutes ago. MLECOA: Push NORTH along ROUTE 13 and NORTH-WEST along ROUTE E65 with recon elements and mech infantry already landed in YSTAD to establish a cordon and locate Swedish forces. When contact has been estasblished with Swedish superior forces they will most likely put up a hasty defence or delay and counterattack with the tank company located in YSTAD. MDECOA: A quick attack NORTH towards VEBERÖD and beat our forces before we are prepared and a push NW along E65 to the Airport STURUP to gain an airport in the area, giving them options to expand even faster. b) Own: 2nd Brigade (BA, Bravo Alpha) have been tasked with destroying enemy bridghead around YSTAD. Brig CO's intent to do this is with our Bn conduct a faint attack SOUTH along Route 13 and tie down the enemy while 2nd Bn will conduct a right hook (from the west) and attack along E65 and hit the enemy we are tying up in the flank and capture YSTAD. We (1st Bn) (Victor Lima) are located VIC SJÖBO with 2nd Bn (Victor Kilo) VIC VEBERÖD moving towards BLENTARP with 3rd Bn (Victor Juliett) in reserve NORTH our position. A and B Coy will conduct the attack on Line 4-5, C coy on our left will take line 6 to 9. D Coy is in reserve. c) Attachments and detachments: 1 x Bty Archer (4 x 155 (PZH2000) delivering HE - SMK - ICM - Bonus. 3 x Bty OFFMAP 155 delivering HE - SMK - ICM - Bonus 2 x Platoons Bn Mortar (4 x 120mm Møljnar) delivering HE - SMK - Strix . 2) MISSION: Parts of 1st Battalion are to conduct an AGGRESIVE faint attack over Lines 1 to 5 IOT draw and tie down enemy forces IOT enabling 2nd Battalion to conduct a flank attack and retake YSTAD. a) Key tasks: 1) Attract and tie down enemy forces 2) Take line 4-5 IOT support 2nd Bn flank attack NLT 250945 b) End state: Terrain: Seize Line 4 and 5 Enemy: Either eliminated between Line 1 and 5 or tied down around Line 4 and 5 so they can not interfer with 2nd Bn flank attack. Own: Battalion taken no more then 25% casualties and ready after resupply to continue the attack on YSTAD. Civilian: Minimize collateral damage (This is our country after all) 3) EXECUTION: 5) COMMAND AND SIGNALS:
  6. We use TS3 to simulate radios by using groups that's also why we always ask people that are new to show up a little early so we can get them setup with comms another advantage of our system is that once you have put in the frequencies you need then you can communicate with everybody and if you next time need other freqs then you just change them in your own setup so no dragging people into a whisper list etc... and as it have always been everybody is welcome.

  7. Ahhh my vife called and you beat me too it The Ministry of Defence say they “will not accept a vehicle until it can be used safely” and that they “cannot determine a realistic timescale for the introduction of Ajax into operational service”. John Healey, Shadow Secretary of State for Defence, asked: “To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, with reference to his Department’s Government Major Projects Portfolio Data 2022, what assessment he has made of the feasibility of delivering the Armoured Cavalry 2025 Ajax programme (a) on time and (b) on budget in the context of the Independent Projects Authority’s rating of that programme as red.”The Ministry of Defence continues to work with General Dynamics to resolve the noise and vibration problems on Ajax while protecting the taxpayers’ interests. As acknowledged by the Infrastructure Projects Authority the project remains within its approved budget and General Dynamics are required to deliver to the terms of the £5.5 billion firm-priced contract. We will not accept a vehicle until it can be used safely for its intended purposes and until long-term solutions to the noise and vibration problems have been found, we cannot determine a realistic timescale for the introduction of Ajax into operational service.” The Ajax programme, which began in 2010, is intended to transform the Army’s surveillance and reconnaissance capability. However, it has gone badly wrong, with no deployable vehicle delivered to date let alone providing Initial Operating Capability or Full Operating Capability dates, say the Public Accounts Committee in a report released earlier this year. Committee chairwoman Meg Hillier said that the government “must fix or fail this programme, before more risk to our national security and more billions of taxpayers’ money wasted”, adding “these repeated failures are putting strain on older capabilities which are overdue for replacement and are directly threatening the safety of our service people and their ability to protect the nation and meet Nato commitments”. The Ajax will weigh in at 38 tons with growth potential to 42 tonnes whereas the Pizarro weighs in at 26.3 so to say that it's the same hull / Chassis is too simplify things a bit. If we don't look at all the problems with it that it have and look at it from a tactical perspective how on earth will they ever be able to hide that thing “ The British recon forces have a saying/Mantra that goes something like “if your a being seen you have failed” To show how ridiculous that is I have posted a pic of the Danish Piranha 5 Mortar version which is about the same height its easy to hide in an urban environment just paint it as a skyscraper and you wont be able to spot it 😉. Somebody really have messed up on the criteria's for that vehicle it's heavier than a lot of cold war Tanks.
