  1. More than I'm bothering to count, but all in the ground clutter/tree department so we can have region-specific selections rather than a global 64 object limit.
  2. 105mm M735A1 APFSDS-T 105mm M774 APFSDS-T 105mm M833 APFSDS-T 105mm M900 APFSDS-T 115mm BM-28 APFSDS-T 115mm BM-36 APFSDS-T 120mm M829 APFSDS-T 120mm M829A1 APFSDS-T 120mm M829A2 APFSDS-T 120mm M829A3 APFSDS-T 120mm L26A1 CHARM1 APFSDS 120mm L27A1 CHARM3 APFSDS 120mm OFL120 F2 APFSDS-T 125mm BM-29 APFSDS-T 125mm BM-32 APFSDS-T 125mm BM-46 APFSDS-T 125mm BM-59 Svinets-1 APFSDS-T 125mm Vacuum-1 APFSDS-T
  3. You may want to post such requests in the Wishlist thread.
  4. ...all those new Russian vehicles shown in the Finnish Summer Day video series, or mentioned over at Rock Paper Shotgun yesterday.
  5. Rap, and Square 721 (with an extra tilt of 5.7°, if I remember correctly).
  6. Tech support for Steel Beasts Gold was suspended more than ten years ago. There's a multitude of factors to be considerred, starting with the fact that it's a DirectX 7.0A application, with 8 bit color mode (which graphics card drivers stopped supporting a decade ago), made for Windows 95 and 98 which could still be made to run under Windows XP in compatibility mode. Then there was the issue with the application launcher that the publisher created for it which alone caused extra trouble, and it's not even our own application. So - no. I can't help you. My only recommendation is to try out SB Pro PE, which is better in pretty much every single aspect.
  7. No crew positions among the Prototype vehicle class.
  8. Fair point, it's just that the CROWS II was added only fairly recently. This opens up the possibility to add it to other vehicle, eventually, but it still requires that you modify that vehicle to enable it. This works better if you have a customer for that, of course.
  9. No CROWS on the SEP, at least for now. Did I mention that we've been rather busy?
  10. NO. You can have Steel Beasts Pro PE installed indefinitely after a license expired, and to renew the license you simply purchase another one and then activate that license ticket. It's just that I wanted to make clear that if you install SB Pro PE 4.0 now and then want to play version 4.1, you'd have to uninstall version 4.0 before installing 4.1. The license will survive the uninstallation process, so you can "switch Steel Beasts versions in mid stream" so to speak, it's just that we don't have an auto-update function where Steel Beasts would check for a new version, and then you'd just have to OK the installation process and then go and fetch a coffee, and when you come back everything's magically on the new version.
  11. The license remains valid, but the old version would still need to be uninstalled, and the new version to be installed. Just as a clarification.
  12. They would be assigned from the 1st COY's (BN staff/support/logistics company) signals platoon; they're not an organic asset of the regular combat companies. 1st company is pretty large, about 3...4 times as large as the regular maneuver company. They had their own recce/liaison platoon with the "biker gang" (about a dozen motorcycles, and another dozen light off-road trucks such as Iltis (later Mercedes G)), the signals platoon, a supply platoon, and the BN workshop "platoon" which alone is about 1.5 times a normal company's size. Plus BN HQ staff members (less officers), etc. So, I'd make those M113s 2nd platoon of 1st COY. This is all from memory (I started my career in said biker gang), but the beauty of HS IV is that much of this is actually transferrable from tanks to armored cav, at least as far as the 1st company of a battalion is concerned. The TO&E for 1st companies in mech/armor/cav units is pretty similar.
