Commanders lose all US Military Wargames by design, so they know what defeat is like, (since they can't get defeated by anyone else)

Re: Arma III

I'm pretty sure it's called VBS not ArmA Pro :P I'm not really sure what the revenue streams are for BI though. Ahh that's right, thanks. Guess I'm kinda dating myself, it was called Arma Pro when it was in development. Have a box and dongle too. maybe it'll be a collectible someday? Not that I wou...

Re: Make Heavy Tanks playable again...

Reducing the cost of heavy tanks, but limiting total numbers (overall, not necessarily one type) would be the best solution, (IMO). I just stopped an heavy tank rush last night with a few infantry and 4 ATGM jeeps. and a supply truck. Each jeep had about 2 heavy tank kills each. Maybe max out total ...

Re: Arma III

The bread and butter of Arma was in its defense contract (Arma Pro), which I'm guessing is winding down due to budget cuts and the wars ending....

So they have to make it more mainstream at the expense of the hardcore sim peeps :D

Re: [Photos] Farewell Enterprise

But maybe they can deactivate some carriers with the option of reactivation if needed I actually recommended this in a macro economic presentation That is generally what happens to capital ships, they get decommissioned, then sit in the back pocket in case of war where they may be updated and sail ...

Why bother taking out a fighter that shows up 20 minutes after the party is over?

Re: The future of Air Forces?

I hate to contradict myself in prior argument with ikalugin, but this is NOT symmetrical combat. Where are the Taliban SAMs? Where are their aircraft? Where is their ECM? Combat is not floating above your target and firing missiles at targets with sub-human level IQ and towels on their heads. Ahh y...

Or sets wild ferrets loose in the control room... Innovate or die...your choice. Sure, but relying on drones in the nearby future is not a good idea, unless there is some massive AI breaktrhough, because making the channel to have good width (to support several high resolution streams) and to make ...
