Rolling Thunder: Operation Rising Bear

Recommended Posts

Don't know how I missed this (away most of last week, which may account for it), but I've got my copy downloaded and printed now. I'll be using it during RT on Saturday (my time!), of that you can be sure. Thanks, Mark and Tac197, for putting this together! :luxhello:

CT and enabling commanders have received responses to their plan back briefs and Request for Further Information (RFIs).

You need to incorporate that guidance into your current planning before H hour.

Note that most Missions require co-ord (and hence talking) between CT commanders.

Whilst I'd like to get some sleep on the night in question, I can get up earlier to conduct a final co-ord / synch conference with CT Comds and Key enablers (i.e. those whose names are in bold in the manning list), but ....

1. I'll be pi**ed if only half of you are there and

2. I'll be really pi**ed is one of you who wasn't there starts asking questions that were resolved at the conference. ;)

If it were to happen, do people need an hour pre H to discuss this stuff?

Would prefer not to do it after kick off as those who turned up to participate would be twiddling their thumbs waiting for us.

Don't think I can make it early. 1800Z is the earliest time I can ensure(or better:hope) the kids are sleeping. No chance at 1700Z

What would be nice If I can get the CTs requests for fire support a little bit before hand, so I can plan my stuff...(where to position the FOs and where to plan FM for example)

Is attrition a factor in this game? Say if a CT gets completely wiped out on Phase One, does that mean they are gone for good? Or do we have replacements?

Well its very hard for me to foretell the future and say "The US CT will suffer 50% cas in Mission 1" and build Mission 2 accordingly.

Esp. if the US CT suffers no losses on the night and then suddenly in Mission 2 finds out its at 50%.

So the easiest, "fairest" option is to use the time gaps between missions to make good any losses.

An alternate approach is to just have one long mission with the losses accruing but then:

a. There are issues with the "save mission" feature like the clock / lighting reverts to the original mission settings. and

b. This would require Red (and other nations) to be massively scripted to accommodate whatever the end state of the previous mission is.

The several discrete scenarios means that the time issue is addressed and we can script other nations to react to a known Blue start point.

Thats good.

Any chance you can put this posting in the "manning" thread and perhaps PM Hoggydog so he can work out where he wants to put you?

Thanks to those who responded.

However "1 hour early" for me is 0300 on Sunday morning.

Hence my concern about ensuring all will attend before I set the alarm clock. :)

After that, I'll need to bow out from operating 4th Platoon (IFV), CT Odysseus.

Please understand that I am six weeks from graduation and wish not to fail now. Come mid-May, I'm free until I land a job!

Have you told dta delta?

PzBtl 911 is running a similar four mission activity in July.

These are the files we will use, so please download fresh copies of them and put them into (for Windows 7 users):

C:\Users\XXXX\Documents\eSim Games\Steel Beasts\My Scenarios\downloads

That way you wont spend a heap of time trying to download them off the PzBtl 911 server all at once.

Also for those after the skins, OPORD, Battle Book, etc these are all at:

D u k e , Falli: Can you please replace whatever you may have put on the server already with these fresh files?
