Re: Level of command/span of control

"Modern" war as in today's military actions is different from the warfare of the 1970s and 1980s people expected to fight.

Re: How does the game work

In many, many of the past wargames I've played - Steel Panthers, Combat Mission, and others - fixed-wing aircraft were limited to off-map strikes so the player could focus on the ground situation instead of messing around with planes as well.

Re: Level of command/span of control

Covert, the Bradley is armed with a 25mm chain gun rather than a 40mm autocannon. Anyways, want light tanks or light vehicles? Look at how NATO and Warsaw Pact armies employed armored reconnaissance assets. The French Army had battalion-size regiments for their AMX-10RCs and the British Army of the ...

Re: Vehicles on Pictures and Videos

Also in the trailer: Gepard, Leopard 1, BMP-2, Aérospatiale Gazelle (with HOT ATGM?) and Puma, AMX-30, VAB, AMX-10RC, Shilka...can't wait to see the full unit list. The in-game T-72 looks like a hybrid of T-72 models...side skirts, but no smoke grenade launchers and the original cast steel turret......

Re: How does the game work

If they aren't, it can be easily handwaved with "air parity", which was quite a likely outcome in a Central European War.

Re: How does the game work

I think the 2nd option is more likely--fixed-wing aircraft IMO is out of the focus of this game. :)

Level of command/span of control

In Wargame, what is the size of force players will command in a typical game? A battalion? Regiment/brigade? Maybe an entire division?

"How the West Would Have Won"

Found a rather interesting discussion headed by R.N. Armstrong from a few years past on a Central European War.

Re: Vehicles on Pictures and Videos

The twin-engine Cobra wasn't in use in the U.S. Army, and the Ragingnerds interview clearly showed a single engine model. However, maybe there's going to be a U.S. Marine faction along with some Norway maps in the future? The pic in the first post is an M1A1 (you can see by the rear storage, removal...

The Soviet Stereotype

There are many inaccurate stereotypes of the Soviet Army that the West believed in during the Cold War, such as: - all Soviet commanders are dumb, inflexible and are supposed to "follow the plan" like an unthinking robot, therefore none of them are able to react to rapid changes on the bat...
