Re: Beta NDA relaxed

Was wondering about smoke, as opposed to HE, for the situation where you don't know where the ATGM's are, such as when you plan to make an offensive push across open ground and want to screen forces. On that same theme, are there minefields which can be laid to screen certain approaches? About the g...

Re: Beta NDA relaxed

Quick question and then a longer one. Do tanks / artillery have the ability to fire smoke rounds and do those obscure ATGMs / hostile fire? On a larger note, have you found that there is a balance between the offensive and defensive fires? Between infantry ATGMs and the mobility of tanks, does the g...

Re: Beta NDA relaxed

Were there:

1) Combat engineers that could dig camouflaged or better defended fighting positions?

2) Could Scout helicopters, like the Kiowa, target for ATGM firing attack helicopters?

3) Could tanks go hull down, and did that affect their survivability?

Thanks

Re: the unit discussion thread

What the game really needs is the ability to use MRLS battalions firing cluster bomb rockets.... (The I WIN button, wipe the other half of the map off the face of the earth). A serious question, does anyone know if engineers will be part of the game? Will they be able to dig fighting positions for A...

Re: Of map support?

I'll just copy what I wrote in the "Armies & Strategies" forum. I think WiC did it best, a charging point count with a menu of off map options. I'd add the following three points: 1) Support called without FAC / recon view of the target has lower accuracy 2) Hostile AA/SAM, for CAS, an...

Re: the unit discussion thread

Wooo, first post... Would a system from WiC be better for off map support? Some sort of recharging budget for off map support, such as: artillery, recon, EW attacks (reduces unit accuracy), and CAS? To tie it into FAS and to give both sides the ability to respond, I propose the following modificatio...
