  1. Really sad to hear this news. I have not played on line for a long time, but I do remember TJay. RIP.
  2. Happy New Year all - installing the new version and hoping to get back to some virtual tanking this year!!!
  3. Thunder run has been added to the basket...
  4. Just finished reading this one. Despite being written in 88 the debrief points probably read the same for many exercises happening today!! A really good read for anyone wanting an insight to Battle Group (uk term) or Task Force planning tactics and execution. i would make it compulsory reading for Pl (Tp), Coy (Sqn) leaders and HQ staffs! And all the support arms!! The importance of a strong and capable XO (BG 2IC / COS) comes through really strong emphasising the importance of G4 logistics, medical and maintenance. thoroughly recommended. A series of missions. Depends if the ground is accurate to the NTC maps? Someone more familiar with that terrain and terrain file will know better! what to read next?
  5. That is some impressive bridging!!! (Amongst other stuff)
  6. Indeed. Just checked and my northern plains of Germany appeared to be in the Southern Hemisphere and east of the Greenwich meridian... interesting...
  7. I have not checked yet but I think it may have something to do with the lat and long of the map. i had the same issue and have not yet gone back in to check...
  8. I have been off for a while and coming back on. In the past i have enjoyed creating a number of tactical vignettes and have had a go at creating missions from things like Team Yankee... or from vignettes used in training. frustratingly many of these are not based in the real world and therefore a significant amount of time can be spent hunting for the right bit of ground... the key key to this is the elevation data. The terrain can be “painted” on after. what I would like to be able to do is manipulate the height map file to alter the relief to suit the vignette. is there a way of doing this either within SB or through another system that can create a height file that can be imported into SB? Many thanks in advance...
  9. I did this for my Team Yankee Mission. I had the last Ter file created and the Hgt which was the old Hmap.Hgt file. Having brought in the Hgt and the the Ter, the system created the new package which is 91MB. Pulled it into the mission file and everything works fine. I suspect some of my earlier creations are going to be missing the detail. May have a look if I find time in the downloads section...
  10. Spot on and something I continued to say in my last years when serving. Can’t waste valuable field time learning stuff. Live confirmation following intensive and continuous simulation, both virtual and constructive to train both tactics and staff... a little off topic....
  11. I tried to get mine to read it and get them introduced to the YOs course after sub unit command. The lessons from first clash, team Yankee and brig Patrick cordingly’s in the eye of the storm were extremely useful when acting as the Armour Observer Mentor for Battle Group Training in the UK. Amazing how much of the basics had been eroded by Ops in Afghanistan...
  12. Been sucked in and just ordered on Amazon Uk... what with first clash, team Yankee etc becoming a bit of a library. wish some of these had been on the reading list as a young Tp Leader!!!
