Oh I am definately in. That's my backyard they are attacking. Good thing I moved a couple of clicks to the south-west a couple of years back!

This saturday is good for me, not sure about 100% participation in the full campaign, but will do my best.

Sorry but you have the one unit spanning lots of different "sides" how is it meant to co-ordinate, hear the other patrols, etc?

Coordination via TS, "Allied" units visible on map. And you can copy maptrace to "all other parties".

That should be it :-)...

Ah so they share a common TS channel?

Guess I'll find out. :)

When / where do you want people to nominate for jobs/vehicle types or is that sorted out just prior to mission start when you know who is there?

The ipadress of ts server in first thread is wrong, only use domain name steelbeasts.org!

Pretty sure he means people can connect to either (PzBtl 911 or Steel Beasts, the IP address supplied) and he will visit the Steel Beasts one and transfer them over (since yours requires a password that not everybody knows).

Hence the line under the one with the IP address.

The Fin Engineers are equipped with Fuchs1A6 and M113?

The FIN LMVs have no RWS?

If I saw the map, I got a bad feeling. Last time I started from this airport, I lost 30% of my tanks in the first 5 minutes (mines).

But If I remember right than we won "Ukkos Hammer", It was bloody but we won.

AAR Ukkos Hammer

cheers

Well they have the Kongsberg RWS for their patria.

I guess for recon they use the RG-32* or the Wolf (Mercedes G).

*the LMW could be a standin here. and a Kongsberg "could" be fitted.

Also the fins have M2s, MG3, and 40mm H&K-AGL in stock.

I'll make something up :-P

Mech recce uses CV9030, BMP-2, MT-LB, AMV w/.50cal RWS (for the units with similar main equipment)... for carrying around the recce squads. They also got a lot of motocross bikes.

RG-32s and G Mercs are mainly for use in international missions. Or for support roles other than recce in Finland.

BMP-2 in recce could be nasty...

That AT-5 is a sting in the tail.

Time and place O Gp (or just be there before 2100Z)?

I'll be there from 2030Z waiting for my Patrol Commander's Orders. ;)

Do we have an IP address?

Do we have a mission file to download?

(Oh and I created an event in the Calendar for "tomorrow" and next time).

I'll upload mission 2hours ahead (expect file at 1900Z)

I have to make some changes to the Finns after Zip's input.

Also I need to make sure to add more geo-reference for orientation ;-)

@Tjay and Tacbat:

Tasks are up, http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbforums/showthread.php?t=21415

I leave it up to you to split the mission between the 2 Patrols.

Or more mil-correctly ;), local-OC: Gibson
