  1. Saw that a week or two ago. Enjoyed it much. Thanks.
  2. If you're interested in Team Yankee scenarios, this scenario combines the engagements described in chapters 5, 6, & 7. I've attached scans of the maps from the book for comparison.
  3. "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn"
  4. The video showcases only four vehicle models. The M113 has external fuel tanks, which is anachronistic given that the other three vehicles are a T-55, a BRDM-2, and an M60.
  5. I based the Camp Hornfelt scenarios in large part on task list from the old ARTEP manual, some of which I have kept posted here. That set of scenarios seems to have been popular since having been posted long ago. So short answer to your question: Yes.
  6. Of course. Perhaps we have a good grasp on the concept. 😉
  7. Also perhaps "Coup d'oeil". Being able to judge distance at a quick glance. A valuable skill for a cavalryman or artillerist. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coup_d'œil

  9. Just uploaded and awaiting approval. I understand that the new map loading function should be good to go. Any criticism will be appreciated. Here's the briefing: Company Team Bannon - OBJ Link 04 AUG 1986, Kernsbach. The Cold War has gone hot and we're a couple days into the Third World War.

    New map UID

    Thanks Ssnake. I'll reload the file with the appropriate folder.

    New map UID

    I've been away for awhile, so I'm not as up to speed as I'd like. I've been trying to get someone help me playtest a scenario written with the new upgrade. I uploaded the contents of my map package folder which is now available for download. I emailed a copy of the scenario file to the tester. He has downloaded the map files from here, but reports that the scenario file cannot find the mind. I understand that the map UID might have changed when it was prepared for download here. Are there further steps that might help the scenario file recognize the new map? Perhaps trying to open it up

  15. Anyone familiar with the novel, 'Team Yankee' who might be interested in playtesting a scenario please contact me. Thanks.
  16. This was in my archives. Perhaps it might be helpful. Blauheim.ter
  17. When I was an M113 driver, when the terms were used in our motorpool, 'dead' track shoes were those whose bushings had worn to the point that they needed to be replaced. Checking the space between the shoes with an oddly shaped gauge to measure the amount of wear was part of the operator's level PMCS checks.
  18. I don't know if this will be of any help, but maybe --- The intent to that first scenario was to replicate the value of the 'Tanks' scenario from SB1. That scenario consisted of a single player tank on a small plot of rolling terrain and nine enemy tanks that moved around in a semi-random pattern. It was very helpful in learning how to maneuver using terrain and avoiding skylining, et cetera. The point of the first Camp Hornfelt mission was to try provide something similar but with a platoon rather than just a single vehicle. The point was to distinguish when different movement
  19. Not a training camp, but this might be interesting for you, especially with the upgraded BRDM2 model.
  20. "I can go back even further then that. I actually played this in the arcades back in the day. LoL" Gunner, Battlesight Saucer. Fire. We're taking fire. Permission to retreat? Tanki vpered! Hero, First Class. I wanna be an M1 when I grow up.
  21. Well Hinesville wasn't much of anything special. The spring and summer that I was there, a group of us would drive down to Daytona Beach on weekends as often as possible.
  22. When I was in Hinesville, most cav troopers drank at Ronnie's Place, irrc. Myself, I spent too much time at a buy-me-drinkee bar called the Holaday Lounge or something like that.
  23. My first permanent party station after 19D OSUT was 24 ID, 2/9 CAV 84-85.
  24. There should only be a couple dismounts in an M3. They won't be able to carry more than the AT-4. Also the brevity codes for the platoons within the cav troops, red, white, blue, green, black; 1st, 2d, 3d, 4th, HQ. 1st and 3d were scouts, 2d and 4th were tanks.
  25. FYI: Brevity call signs for 3rd Squadron were: Sqn = Bandit, I = Invader, (no Juliet Troop, for semi-obvious reasons), K = Killer, L = Leadhorse, M (tank company) = Mauler, How Batt = Gunsmoke.
