5. Scoring and timeline

5.1Conduction and timeline of the challenge

All 3 teammembers will start in an off-read vehicle at a random starting point.

- 1st Task: March towards Station „AFV recognition“. Target point given in 8-digit grids. Scoring: time to reach the destination

- 2nd Task: ID of 4 different AFV and estimation oft he distances tot he vehicles. Scoring: Each wrong ID adds 60 seconds to you overall time. Each range estimation that deviates more then +/-50m from the true distance will add 30 seconds to the overall time.

- 3rd Task: March to tank take over point. Target point given with reference-point method. Scoring: time to reach the destination

- 4th task: Tank-march to the shooting range. Target point given with reference-point method. Scoring: time to reach the destination

- 5th task: Tank shooting range , see § 5.2

5.2 The tank range:

At the start the tanks will have no ( in numbers: 0,0) ready ammo in the turret bunker. You can reload from the hull bunker. Take care that you just load enough ammo to kill your targets…other wise it will cost you too much time.

You’ll be shooting at 6 targets or target groups:

1. Static target at long range (>2500m)

2. Moving target at medium range (1800-2500m)

3. Soft target

4. IFV target

5. Engaging a moving target on while the move

6. Engaging a target in emergency mode

Target will not have the „one hit-kill“ activated. Moving targets will show up only once an will be destroyed by penalty zone after leaving the target area. In this case the target counts as „not destroyed“.

Your own tank is set on „blind“ status. So all the spotting and gunning hast o be done by the team.

For every target „not destroyed“ you receive 2 penalty minutes. If the target 5 is not destroyed while your own tank is stationary, the target counts as „not destroyed“. On top oft hat you’ll get another penalty minute.

The scenatio will end the moment you killed the last target.

5.3 Overall score

The winner will be determined by the shortest overall scenario time+ added penalties. For scoring purposes the scenario run time from the server AAR will be taken.

Penalty list:

-False ID of an Tank recognition target: 1 Minute

-Estimate of range to tank recognition target not within +/- 50 Meters: 1 Minute

-Not giving a Range estimate or vehicle ID: 3 Minutes per target

-Not completing Tank recognition station: 25 minutes

-Not destroying a target(movers will move into a penalty zone of lane and count as "not destroyed"): 2 Minutes per target (* infantry sections counts a 1 target)

-Engaging the target during the "move phase" from a stationary BP: 15 minutes



At the competition there will be present the 3 team mebers and one referee/judge. The judge will observe the sce-conduct and make a video of the competition run for scoring/evaluation as well as PR purposes.

For all disputes the server AAR is determinant. The referee has the last word.

For all vehicles status is blind, and the map view is disabled.

Drive carefully! If you crash you tank or your off-road-vehilce, you lost!!

How about opening it up to the M1A2?

The idea was to have everyone in somewhat equal vehicles in order to make crew skill the deciding factor.

So: No

And yes: the CR2 the Leo2A4 , other M1 models and the Leo2E are out for the same reason.

Well I guess Grenny could let you edit the scenario and change the vehicle type.

Then you can set it up however you want. ;)

Team Sabre is mainly from the US?

Would this friday at 2000 UTC be OK? (Noon on the US eastcoast?)

Or on Saturday after "Though Rider" (think that will finish at around 2300 UTC/afternoon US east coast time) ...actually I'd prefer that one, only 1 game night a weekend suits "my boss" better ;-)


If that does not work...I have a day of on 6th of may, so I could get up early to have  evening time in the US---
