  3. Keep in mind also (and someone may have mentioned it here already) that the actual Challenger 2 has a feature that is not modeled in SB, which is used for extreme range HESH engagements. (We would love to model it, but the UK Army was not interested, and its not like its a vital feature, and there are always so many more important things to do). Anyway, my memory is quite fuzzy here, and someone may know more, but basically -- at extreme ranges, the HESH round is, let's say, not extremely accurate. It's a bit like you are firing a trebuchet at a point target -- an exaggeration, but probably not far off. When the HESH round impacts off-target at extreme range, you observe the fall of the shot, then press buttons to adjust for the next shot (either Aided Lay, Add, Drop, Line, or some or all of these are used, I don't recall anymore). This feeds a correction/estimate into the computer IIRC, or simply just adjusts the reticle with add/drop, then you reengage. In this way you basically bracket the target and walk it in, like indirect fire. In SB, you have to adjust manually yourself -- basically "Kentucky Windage" it, which is essentially the same process but without whatever assistance the FCS would be giving here from the actual feature. But the point is, its not precision-accurate at extreme ranges. That account from 1991 of a Challenger killing at tank at 5+km with HESH, well, certainly the target had to be stationary, and I don't want to guess how many rounds it took to hit it -- who knows. But that's how myths become legends. But I think in general, the longer the range, the more you should be using HESH primarily (I assume here) just for anti-personnel (area) engagements. But a real CR2 crewman would have to say for certain (if they even could in today's paranoia climate). Maybe that helps illuminate the issue on why extreme range HESH engagements on the CR2 are so awkward.
  4. No, I haven't forgotten about a scenario -- I am just trying to figure out if one will be ready in time to play, or if we will go to the next one in the list. I will post here at the last minute when I figure it out... 😁

  6. 13 MAY 2022: TF Deutschland 1978-4250a-smaller-FMU (If we don't have enough people, which is likely, we will play something smaller) SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Draft? Yes. Random CO selection? Yes. Minimum # players: 14 (can possibly work with 12 though, but no less) NOTES: Remember to play within the TGIF House Rules and SB.com Community Rules.
  7. Disregard, changed the scenario (the previous stated one needs more testing and I don't want to rush it). Edited the previous post for a new scenario.

  9. 29 APR 2022: Civil War Dera Ghazi Part2-smaller-4250a (This is part 2 from last week, not 100% dynamic from last week's situation - 2nd scenario with same theme; if Blue wins again then they are the winner, otherwise the winning side this week and Blue have a DRAW and the other side who lost twice is the loser). SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Draft? No. (same teams, unless one side has no or very few people) Random CO selection? No. (same COs from last TGIF - if one is missing then someone on that team will have to take over) Minimum # players: 9 NOTES: Remember to play within the TGIF House Rules and SB.com Community Rules.

  13. Hello and welcome, Yes, certainly we all love Soviet/Russian vehicles because they are very... interesting, and we always want to add new ones. If you look, there are quite a lot of playable Russian vehicles but yes, not yet any current ones. At the moment the newest one is the T-72B1, though. Over time new vehicles are gradually added, so you never know.

  18. So I guess since this thread is about it being "cool" and not about a bug, then it should be moved to the general forum? 🤔

  22. Regarding the "Refresh Maps" button, to be clear, for anyone wondering, this question was asked because this is a standard thing to try. How does anyone know if someone is manually deleting a map while still looking in the map list within the same session? (it happens often, to me at least) So basically, the button works exactly as it is named -- when pressed, it refreshes the maps. Specifically, it scans the map folders and reloads the data in that map list and updates it. If you restarted SB in the mean time, then it refreshes the maps when you first load that list in that session. Of course it would be nice if the manual explained that detail, sure, but for the most part it should be straight forward. But it is simply one of the first things to try if loading or deleting maps within the same session. 👌 Edit: Now that is the button inside of Steel Beasts (when opening the Map Editor). There is a "Refresh" (maps) button also in the Map Transfer Manager app which behaves in a similar way (refreshing its own cache, which it automatically does when you start it or when you download a map within the app). Hopefully that clears up the button's function.

  24. Thanks for playing that test scenario. Lots of improvements made; in addition to the broken artillery on Soviet side, one Challenger platoon (3x tanks, ~1/5th of the tank force) had CHARM3 (610mm KE, 1999) instead of L23A1 (480mm KE, 1985). Whoops, sorry about that Red side, you never know until you play it. 😬😐 🏃‍♂️
