KANIUM SUNDAY 17TH OF JUN 1800 GMT - "11th ACR Mission 1 Delay at Bad Hersfeld" BY Sworsmandk Where: Kanium TS : teamspeak3.i3d.net:10077 World Clock 1800 GMT(Same time as always) World clock 1800 UTC IMPORTANT NOTICE: This SB session may be recorded w. video and sound and uploaded, including to a public youtube channel Everybody is Welcome you don't have to belong to kanium Excerpts of the battalion commander's orders for... 1) SITUATION: a) Enemy: In the last two hours we have been under heavy attack from 39th Guards Motor Rifle Division. As expected we are being forced back towards Bad Hersfeld and our minefields have been breached north of Bebra. Enemy units have been hit hard by both air attacks and our rotary assets. It is assesed that some units have been pulled out of actions already and second echelon forces have been deployed. Remaining MRR regiments we believe is at less than 75% combat streght left. Enemy appears to have three Course of Actions (COA) and looks to be focusing on two of them. Main effort (COA-1) from Herlefhausen south-west via Highway 4 and the second effort (COA-2) from Lüderbach and Ringbach south-west Highway 27. Both with main objective being Bad Hersfeld. COA-3 appears to be a probe going west/south-west along Landstrasse 3336. Enemy main effort (COA-1) appears to be along Highway 4 with 120th Guards MRR (motor rifle regiment), 117th Guards MRR, leading the way. Backing them up is the 15th Guards Tank Regiment. Enemy secondary effort (COA-2) is via Highway 27 with what we believe is 11th recon battalion leading and with 172nd Guards MRR following close behind. We have reason to believe that 80th Tank regiment is split between COA-1 and COA-2. The 3rd MTR BTN of the 172nd is reported undergoing refueling and rearming and will not be available to support their attack. Enemy is focusing main rotary effort on COA-1. Units identified 39th Helicoptor Squadron has been in action in that area. Enemy air forces is still a threat so air warning: yellow. b) Own: 3/11th is at war. We have been in the fight for several hours now and have giving ground only when forced to. Lima and Mike Troop have been fighting a delay from Lüderbach since this morning with support from 4th Squadron(Air). They are pressed hard and need to resupply and rearm soon. - India Troop (INVADER)(YOU!)(90% strenght)) is setting up for a delay in the valley north of Bad Hersfeld covering COA-2. - Kilo Troop (KILLER )(90% strenght) is setting up in the valley North-East of Bad Hersfeld covering COA-1. - Lima Troop (LEADHORSE) (60% strenght) is going through Bad Hersfeld and heading for the Squadrons Assembly and resupply area. - Mike Troop (MAULER) (50% strenght) is going through Bad Hersfeld and heading for the Squadrons Assembly and resupply area. It is CO 3/11th (BANDIT) intension to fight a delaying action in COA-1 and COA-2 delaying enemy forces for enough time to secure that Lima and Mike troop get the necessary time to rearm and get reinforcements to the area. Hold at least 1 hour if possible. You will have entire 3/11th artillery assets available (2x4 M109s). 4th Squadron(Air) is resupplying and will have a flight ready within 30 minutes to provide support. To our left we have a german Jäger Coy and to the right 1/11th ACR. Entire 11th ACR is heavily engaged and we are awaiting reinforcements to arrive from the rest of V Corps. c) Attachments and detachments: We have been assigned 1 PLT from CSS. This is 2xAmmo, 1xARV, 1xMedic. Rest of CSS is at assemly area south of Ba Hersfeld. 2) MISSION: Commander 3/11 intend is to delay forces moving along COA-2 and give Mike and Lima troop enough time to rearm and regroup.

You are to buy the time needed for the other troops to complete rearming. You are to minimize losses if possible but provide stiff resistance where ever its needed.

I have been working up my V3 M1 skins to now include the existing decals and doing a general update to release a V4 pack. The models have not changed that I can tell for the M1 series. However, I am having some trouble with the gear bags on the rear on the M1A0. The bags are see through along with some parts of the turret. Whats the matter? Is is a conversion to dds issue? I generally make my skins in PSP and save as a PSD file to convert to a dds using Photoshop. Next issue. Is there a way to "alpha" out the equipment bag in the rear bustle rack of the IPM1 and MA1A's? I think the tank would look better without the low rez tarp. Thanks, Pete
I have two question about this video. I guess this is a M60 with TIS. 1- I see in this video a side movement of the sighting system. This same behavior happen to me last time I took M1A1. Why do this side movement while lasing? 2- we can see the gunner never targeting right over the tank to target, but anyway he got to hit the target well. I guess the right/down correction is ballistic calculation cuz the wing/temp right, but Down? Maybe a ballistic error and the gunner made a manual correction? Anyway I never see he got aim on this tank and was a good hit.
84 downloadsA template to depict the task organization of Team Yankee (A/1-4 AR) based on the Howard Coyle that every armor enthusiast has read and loves. This is a template of the original Team Yankee from the first battle. I do not recall the callsign for the attached infantry platoon or anti tank platoon, so I made those up, but the composition is still accurate.
