  1. I'd like it on some of the in game 4x4s, but the M38A1C jeep would be ideal for many, many countries. Also the M79 monowheel mount in dismounted format and, in an ideal world, the Austrian towed carriage.
  2. I have just been playing with the BONUS EFP submunition projectile, IEDs as a surrogate for the Swiss PSD-75 pre-positioned demolition/cratering device and the M40A1 recoilless rifle. All are absolutely fantastic! Thank you very much for adding all of these to the game. They really add to my enjoyment.
  3. Thank you for this tutorial. It was really helpful! Also thanks again to the devs for the fantastic job they did of the M40A1 - I'm really hoping for M38A1C Jeep and dismounted (M79) and, if possible the Austrian towed versions. 1
  4. Even that is great. I hope it makes it to some of the other 4x4 soft skins in game.
  5. M40A1 = great for period Swiss and Austrian scenarios! Is it going to be only vehicle mounted or will you have the M79 monowheel and/or Austrian pneumatic tyred towed versions too?
  6. OK, I understand the abstraction thing I doubt it's trained practice to shoot through foliage with HEP, but odd things happen and if you came across a bunker covered with light branches or you had run out of APDS-T and you caught a T-54 behind some foliage at close range, I'm guessing you would probably choose HEP over HEAT. Late edit: SB always makes you think. I just had an M60A3 run out of all other ammo and shoot WP at an enemy tank. Nothing much happened, but it's an entirely realistic thing to happen that I had never considered!
  7. Hi there. I've had a few instances of HEP from an M60A1 when it hits small branches etc. I though this type of round had a base fuse and would only activate after an interval that allowed the warhead to flatten against the target. Something fairly substantial other than steel or concrete, such as hitting solid earth, would still activate the fuse, but not a twig, for example.

    There's a really good manual for it in the SBWiki, even if the author is a bit dodgy!
  9. I returned to edit the post having thought of that, and you'd already picked up my error. Instead can we please just have the ability to set the turret to train to rear (not locked there) for transit?
  10. Ability to lock barrel in transit position (in most cases with turret facing to rear) for scenarios where friendlies are required to retreat through other units.
  11. Is lead a thing that is separate from the computer and can be set to non operational?
  12. Ability to set how many of each infantry section/squad have AT weapons, of which type and in what quantity.
  13. Thank you, Mark. If you ever change your mind, you will be most welcome there.
  14. Hi guys. A few months ago, I set up a Swiss Cold War Defence Facebook Group which does pretty much what it says on the tin. You (or at least any of you who find this arcane subject interesting) are all most welcome to join! https://www.facebook.com/groups/687242395509711 After my pleading with him for a couple of weeks, my friend Walter set up an excellent Austrian equivalent which is slowly taking off. https://www.facebook.com/groups/495917868493348 Steel Beasts gets mentions on both, of course! Many thanks Chris
