  1. Very nice and much appreciated. It would be great if you could turn it into something like Gibsonm described. Also, on the multiple choices, it would be good if you could make the choices all the same class of vehicle. MBT for example.
  2. Unless you were looking at the map through the periscope
  3. Sorry Grenny - re blast doors, that's why I said "entirety of" - of course there would be cases where the hull stowed rounds would already have been expended. I hadn't considered model fidelity. My bad.
  4. I'm not trying to stir things up, but, from a realism perspective, having received quite a few hits that took out my main gun ammunition stowage, in its entirety, in a variety of vehicles (Particularly M1xx. Leo2xx, Leo1xxm Marder and Piranha 3C DF30), I'm wondering what kind of real-world hit would take out the entirety of the ammunition stowage in any of those vehicles without killing the vehicle and its crew (possible exception DF30) outright.
  5. Instant action scenario for M1A2 now much more challenging!
  6. A great place to ask would be the British Army Rumour Service - https://www.arrse.co.uk/community/forums/ You could mention that the British unit involved was C Squadron, Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. Good luck with this!
  7. Thank you Jartsev, that is exactly what is happening. My bad.
  8. Guys, I have one related to this. I have a scenario where I am ambushing BMP-1s, MTLBs and BTRs coming around a hill from the side with a 0.50" HMG team. What happens is the vehicles advance toward the HMG team to a point where they are still entirely screened by intervening "bumpy" terrain and both they and the HMG team just keep shooting into the intervening ground. This goes on until I bring another asset over the ridge opposite and shoot the offending vehicle from behind. Thinking about it, I have had this happen elsewhere in the same scenario, also with a ZSU-23-4, which makes for quite spectacular fireworks.
  9. Hi. When I go to ABM AIR mode in the CV90/35NL, the reticle tends to run away from me and I find it very hard to get the sights onto, let alone track targets. This does not happen in moving target mode which defaults to APFSDS-T ammo, nor with the CV90/40 in AIR mode with which it is very easy to track air targets. What am I missing here? (except a bunch of de-fanged Hind-E's )
  10. One thing I think is really spectacular. In mission editor, put an MBT of your choice out on relatively "dusty" terrain with some hard targets arrayed in front of it and a defend order, then select a view point about 100 metres to the side of the tank and watch it shoot. The realism is awesome.
  11. I'm finding SB much more immersive with the latest round of changes. There is a lot less suspension of disbelief required now.
  12. Seeing how dangerous a well-positioned 0.50 machine gun is to the likes of BRDM, most BTR and BMP, I'd like to see an anti-materiel rifle team implemented and not restricted to "high priority" targets.
  13. I'm finding the vulnerability of the external gun, its feed and associated electro-optics is very realistically modelled. The base vehicle is relatively robust, as you would expect, and lends itself to hull down firing positions in permissive terrain. For that reason I have been hit and had subsystems taken out quite a few times now, but have yet to lose a crew member. I'm loving this vehicle.
  14. Time to fess up. How many of you rez one the beautifully rendered new vehicles (or one of the old ones for that matter) on a map and just gaze lovingly at it as it trundles around the landscape?
  15. I think it's also partly that they've put themselves in the position of substituting 8x8 armoured trucks for heavily tracked AFVs in a potential conflict where they could not be confined to non line of sight transport and purely hull down ambush roles and might well need to retake ground. That and any tracked AFVs they do deploy stand to be grossly outnumbered. That said, the APS for Stryker has now fallen through, at least for the meantime. Did the US ever deploy a soft-kill APS?
