  1. Orr Kelly should do King of the Killing Zone II
  2. So between my Armored Cav by Tom Clancy and M1 Tank Platoon Microprose Sim manuals, I believe I can lay out a militarily, doctrinally correct Cavalry Squadron assault on a Ruski Regiment with defense laid in depth. I'll spend the next few weeks working on it, and post here my results.
  3. Make the base unit a battalion (reinforced maybe) in size. Attack with two companies, keep one in reserve, see how far you can make it (1-2 battles a day) across the map. I know I have extreme trouble managing anything larger than battalion size.
  4. I was actually just thinking of taking a whole map, filling it with phase lines covering multiple missions across a whole map with numerous enemy-related objectives, and some resupply units to haul up or retreat to and call it a campaign.
  5. Once upon a time I set the visibility range out to over 15,000... shortly after I cranked it down to 10,000.
  6. PST is -7 or 8 depending on DST, which even confuses us Americans.
  7. Man I love this sim... I've never even been in a tank and that steel feels cold. Scoring the glen with tread marks. Up close and personal! Hurry up with that track! I got photogs climbin' the tank here!
  8. Saw this beauty for under $30 and had to grab it. Last purchase from *that country* I promise. Honestly thought it was coming form New Jersey at first. But she'll be on my doorstep this time next week, 1/72 scale to go with my other same scale armor display. (Photo zoomed in for shock and awe)
  9. Yeah I retreat (perform tactical retrogrades) regularly when I need stand off (am getting my treads waxed) and they always have gone in reverse. This was a first and it ticked me off cuz the rest of the Platoon AI did monkey see/monkey die. This (my) tank turned tail and ran and Ba-Ba-Bam-Ba-Bam! Five hits in 3 seconds. It was dead around the 2nd or third.
  10. Time to start scripting I guess.
  11. I ordered a retreat. So my driver turned tail and ran away. And of course, right after we blew up with tail to the enemy, everyone else turned around and ran too. The platoon was lost. You can tell from the smoke columns in the background we were winning, we were just displacing while 2nd PLT covered us.
  12. EDIT: I'm trying to move a CPY or BRG together. I now see that it works for friendly units in game, but I seem to have to jump to each unit and tell them to move out to get everyone moving. I was hoping to get a Soviet BRG moving like in those cool Cold War movies of USSR Armor onslought moving across the plains of Germany.
  13. Hey Group, I'm looking for that post and video about how to group a collection of platoons to move across the map together as a Company/Battalion for an assault. I found it a few months ago and got it to work but I forgot how and am now looking for it again. Any help or links would be appreciated!
  14. So I took a tank heavy Cav troop against a company of T-14s and T-15s. It ended something like this:
  15. How about the ability to scroll around maps, select units, plot routes, etc. thru the F1 view in the tracks that have IVIS or similar? I mean, without going into F5 view? And by the way I freaking love this sim. Thanks for working so hard on it, making it public, and developing it as time has gone by. It'll never be replaced. Hello? Is this thing on?
  16. Put your leg warmers on and poof that hair high! It's time for-
  17. Surprised "Combat Team" -same style, same author- hasn't been mentioned. Interactive fiction but you're a company commander in an M-1A2, etc. company. ...and his full on novel Proud Legions, a hard-to-put-down novel based on Combat Team.
  18. Ya. I was 100% kidding. I'm awesome but not THAT awesome.
  19. Oof. I'm confused. Test beds for what? the Bradley -A3? It's in full production. Lots of units are now completely equipped with it.
