since there isn´t any dedicated thread to discussing computer wargames

what do you guys feel bout them?

any recomendations? personal favourites? wich suck, wich do not?

i´ve been personally playing picrelated but i can´t handle the autism

or rather the game refusing to explain anything

and i have actually read the manual and the only thing that it explains its the hud and how assaulting works

Usually they get incorporated into a lot of other threads.

Here's a quick recommendation which is pretty lite as far as things go: Panzer Generals


There's also Steel Panthers series which I have no download link which heads up OP, it's good to share download links

If you like 40k there's Final Liberation which is pretty good honestly.

>Panzer General

i absolutley fucking hate the fact that you have to make missions on a deadline it feels like speedrunning chess and the game quickly devolves into trial and error untill you find the 20 exact moves to beat the mission

Since you're already playing one of John Tiller's games you might be interested in this (if you don't know about this already).


It's demos for various series they produce. The only difference from normal game is lack of scenarios.

There's also continuation of Campaign Series called Campaign Series: Middle East 1948-1985.


Steel Panthers can be downloaded from here. The paid version offers some improvements like better resolution support and other stuff.

>Computer Wargames

For anybody interested the kikes at Battlefront released Demo Combat Mission Shock Force 2 some time ago.

Tl;dr Set in alternative 2008 where USA and some other HATO countries invade Syria, you can choose your side and play as the good guys (Syrian Arab Army, Republican Guard, Insurgents) or as the bad guys (USA army, USA marines, Bundeswehr, Brits)

Of course the game is as clunky and buggy as every Battlefront release.

Not to mention that its also a straight up "update" of they old game, not something new. They refused to push the timeline forward and add more combating sides, more modern weapons etc…

But hey at least its free demo

They're horribly arrogant and a bunch of Jews who charge $10 for patches. They are horribly anachronistic and happy with it. They have no desire to centralize the community and automate PBEM like Slitherine does, and recently they released a demo, of all things, for their latest product. You could say they're autistic.

The Original titles are the only ones worth playing because the newest ones all fuck up the infantry to pants-on-head retarded levels. Seriously, the visual representation of a block of infantry works so much better for these games than the individual soldiers that all behave like total idiots. Even Close Combat's infantry behave more believably, at least they will dive for cover or shoot back when shot at. Reason I'm bitching about it is everyone knew that once the mechanics of the infantry were changed, it would make tanks the only units worth anything because infantry are so squishy.

All they had to do was improve the interface and add a more comprehensive campaign feature, but noooo they just HAD to fuck with the infantry. Fuck the devs of those games, they're faggots and deserve the no money they get because they only adhere to tankfaggotry, not actual gameplay.

>Close combat


you have just triggered my PTSD anon coming from a guy who has beaten all the "Grand Campaigns" from "CC2:A bridge too far" to "CC5:Normandy bullshit"

from where do i begin?

>1.- Infantry can´t use AT for shit

they can´t i can´t count how many Grenadier squads have a lost due to attempting (and succeeding) to flank a tank only for the guy with the panzerfaust to stand there and lick his thumb and then proceed to get pumped full of .30 lead

>2.- Infantry can´t into assaults

the manual tells you that in order to assault you have to "Fast move" into the enemy, however that will only trigger one of the following

A)your infantry will charge at the enemy (Providing that you obviously gave em cover with smoke and shit liked that) only for them to hit the deck once they recieve a SINGLE stray bullet of retaliation and then proceed to stand in the middle of nowhere unable to move because they are pinned and then get killed

B)they will (Surprisingly) get to the enemy and play the russian roulette that is Melee combat wich will either get your entire squad killed or (Miraculously) win most of the time your squad will get killed by the only guy on the other side that is not engaged in melee and is able to shoot your ass down

C)waste all their grenades on a single dude and then get killed because the entire squad is standing in the middle of nowhere throwing grenades without any cover whatsoever

>3.-You have no control over grenades

you can only tell them to throw smoke but have no control over the grenades of panzerfaust or whatever bullshit they may be carriying

this would´nt be a problem if the AI wasn´t shit but sadly it is and as a result stupid shit happens like one time in wich one MG team decided to stop firing the MG and start throwing grenades because that Paratrooper squad got a bit too close

i encourage fags in this thread to download CC5 and see the bullshit for themselves actually no dont do it play something good the only reason i ever touched CC was because i didn´t know of Combat mission at the time

Autistically but they've been getting more accessible. Mius Front is easier than Operation Star for example. Read the manual and worst case watch someone else play the game on (((youtube))) and you'll be fine. If you've never played something like this go for things that are more accessible first.

>jesus fuck i am dense i never knew about that

Yeh there are other settings for the battles too like when it pauses and what colour ships are. Play with it. Admirals mode also gives +25% VP for successful battles over the standard Rear Admiral's mode, Captain's mode lets you micromanage each ship (more autistic) but you lose VP.

The one whose head is sticking out is Pvt. Amin. He is an ATGM section leader in the Syrian Army.

This is him using a very important ATGM on infantry targets, of all things. Said ATGM went through the door of the building the enemy infantry were taking cover in and exploded at the other side, hurting nobody.

I'm at least aware that RPG's are commonly used against infantry targets - RPG's do have specialized anti-infantry and structure rounds, but I don't know about ATGM's. I suppose that would make sense - but in the current tactical situation I'm facing, I could really have used that missile for more suitable targets.

Guess it's just HoI for me then. Do you guys mind if I post here? Since it is a wargame/gsg hybrid.

I've been playing as Italy, and I've just come away victorious from a war with Yugoslavia, which is now only somewhat landlocked instead of puppeted/annexed, thanks to the game's diplomacy being clunky as usual.

It's now August of 1941. France fell early in the year and the time has come for Italy to join Hitler's adventures. Malta will be taken by the combined might of a strengthened Regia Marina and Aeronautica. Greece will be taken by Army Group South, and we will sweep the British off of Egypt - and eventually, all of the Middle East.

Great to hear it!


No, this is my first time posting a HoI playthrough on 8ch.


Initial intel suggests only token forces in Egypt, otherwise the border would be bristling with British guns. The Army of Libya, East is making good speed across the desert, easily shattering the Egyptian troops that stand against it.

Malta lasts only a whopping 4 days. The willingness of the British to fight seemed indomitable at first, but nothing is indomitable under sustained and overpowering air, naval and amphibious attack. The British clumsily sent a cruiser force, lead by a battleship, to intercept the invasion fleet, but this force was shooed away, sinking a British CA and CL.

With Malta secured so relatively quickly, the Royal Marine Corps and the X. Line Corps in Tripoli, and also our air and naval assets there, are now free for use in other missions. We may now do an amphibious attack on southern Greece if we want.

Speaking of Greece, progress there is very slow owing to the terrain. Still, we have caught the Greek Army unprepared and still in the middle of mobilizing. The front line is shattered and our many infantry divisions are marching forward with gusto.

After a month and a half of operations, Greece surrenders.

Army Group South made rapid progress after surmounting the first, fortified border provinces. The 7th Army traveled along the coast all the way to the gates of Athens, pocketing essentially the entire Greek military in conjunction with the northward maneuvers of the 2nd Army.

Athens fell after determined attack by infantry divisions and bombardment from all our four battleships (two of which are still damaged from the scuffle against the sunk HMS Warspite at Malta).

The campaign was made easy due to us having caught the Greeks with their pants down, in mid-mobilization. What was not easy was the Greek air power. Their fighter force surprisingly matched ours in the region.

Egypt was an absolute disaster for the British.

Enemy strength in the area amounted to three modest army corps. Two Egyptian divisions guarding the border were promptly encircled and liquidated before the V. Armored Corps pressed forward, only to be interdicted by two stubborn British infantry divisions. The enemy appeared to be buying time, but they could not do so for long.

The arrival of our two Line Corps at the front freed the V. Armored Corps for maneuver. They went around Cairo and captured Port Said in an exercise of skill and daring equal to that of any German Panzerkorps. Encircled, outnumbered, and being bombed all to hell by the Regina Aeronautica, the Allied ground forces in the region were quick to surrender.

The Royal Navy barged into the Mediterranean with a powerful battlefleet of 3 aircraft carriers, 5 battleships and many troop transports during all this time. As they negotiated the waters around Malta, they were bombed to hell and back by our powerful naval bomber force. No ships were sunk, but many were damaged, and it seems that enemy naval forces in the area have lost cohesion. Intel reports many damaged enemy ships taking refuge. in various harbors from Cyprus to Tel Aviv.

Currently, the V. Armored Corps is going along the Israeli coast.

Well, that was easy. Should we send Army Group South now to the meatgrinder that is the Ostfront?


I have 5 army corps in western Libya and Italy doing nothing as a strategic reserve. They alone probably won't be enough to stop an Allied invasion with US help, but hopefully they can delay the enemy long enough for help to arrive.

Also, Japan is the trigger for the US to go to war. Fortunately or unfortunately, the battle of Khalkin Gol escalated into all-out war with the USSR and now Japan is trying its damnest to hold off the Chinese and Russian hordes in Korea and the Manchurian coast. With the spine of the Kwantung Army broken, I'm not sure if the Japanese AI would want to wage another war.

They probably will still attack Pearl Harbor anyway.

>Operation Lasagne

This will be launched as soon as possible. Battlefleet Primaris, with three of our four battleships, will annihilate the British fleet taking shelter in the ports of Cyprus while our Marines take the island. In conjunction with the operations of the Army of Egypt (formerly Army of Libya, East), this will eliminate the last safe haven for British ships in the Mediterranean.

>Operation Macaroni

Our ally Persia is being invaded in three fronts: by the Soviets from the north, from the British from the east, and from the British puppet Iraq from the west. The Army of Egypt will be reinforced by the all-cavalry V. Army Corps and race through the Mesopotamian plains to make Iraq kneel. They will then support Persia in its defense.

>Operation Meatball

A commitment of Army Group South to the Ostfront meatgrinder. This will be done after our Navy has recovered from the battle and transport duties of operations Lasagne and Macaroni. The Royal Marine Corps will capture the port city of Batumi, through which the Second Army will pour in with all the mountain divisions Italy has at its disposal. They will take Tbilisi and Yerevan before the 6th Army frees them up for future operations, and then they can push on and take the oil fields of Baki.

Success of this operation will mean a worsening of the Caucasus front for the Soviets, and an overall strategic hit from the loss of the oil fields there.

Wargames are my secret love, but I've never really found anything that compares to the Command Ops Series, used to be Airborne Assault. Unfortunately it's only WW2 and actually finding a copy of it is impossible, even though the engines free good luck with getting the scenario files. The freedom of having the whole map to work and not have everything attached to hex grids in turn-based is really what I like about it. I have nothing against traditional hex shit, but stuff like command ops feels more real and satisfies my autism. Shame though that's it's not very well known or popular because I think more wargames should use this concept

Build cheap minesweepers and use old DDs for this, but mostly cheap and slow minesweepers. Note that when ships become obsolete (little o next to them) they start to have reliability issues and specifically Minesweepers (MS ships) will start to be automatically scrapped. To avoid this just do a blank rebuild when the o shows up, hit 'open design for refit' and then change nothing and hit save + rebuild them all to that cheap design. This removes the obsolete modifier.

Sorry for the lack of updates; I've been very busy as of late. Operations Lasagne and Macaroni were launched with success, but we are still reorganizing for Operation Meatball.

>Operation Lasagne

Cyprus was somehow a tougher nut to crack than Malta. The British defenders there, it seemed, were a lot more motivated to fight, contesting our forces for well over a week despite being outnumbered 2 to 1. Even with the big guns of Battlefleet Primaris and air support from bombers flying off the Levant, our 2nd Marine Division was actually put out of action. While they rallied, the 1st Marines took over the rest of the island, capturing no less than 6,000 British troops.

>Operation Macaroni

The V. Armored Corps forms the spearhead for the Army of Egypt, sweeping into Iraq from the west along a very broad front. Once again, General Utili outmaneuvers the enemy with great skill and daring, and with just his corps of 3 divisions, he is able to rout the forces guarding Baghdad and siege the city's forces to surrender. The Army's two infantry corps were still marching across the desert (with ample supplies, I assure you) when a more sensible Iraqi government was declared and a new friend was added to the noble Axis alliance.

Reinforced with the V. Army Corps (the XV. Line Corps are temporarily detached till we can garrison Egypt with second-line units), the Army of Egypt has been renamed to "The Royal Army in Persia" and are currently tasked with defending our stalwart little ally against the British and the Soviets. Here, we scuffle with Indian and Soviet units for the first time. General Utili reports that Indian infantry lack guts and courage, and that the Soviets are a lot more stubborn.


A relative lot of fighting has been going on in this forgotten front. British forces were encircled and destroyed around the Horn of Africa, while down south we destroy one tough British infantry division and secure Mombasa, stealing yet another port from the overstretched Royal Navy.

So here goes nothing.

First off we're invading Finland. In Winter. Off to a good start already.

It seems Stalin was generous to us, we've got a lot of requestion to spend. Best get some more heavy artillery then. Also note that after a hefty bombardment with half the artillery guns in the Soviet Army the Finngolian postmen have barely been dislodged. They are destroyed once Soviet Tanks and infantry are sent in but not without exacting a hefty toll. If this is a taste of what to expect from three platoons of disgruntled postmen what will happen when we approach the Mannerheim Line?

Knowing this will be a pain in the ass to overcome I decide to bring my artillery forward to pound away at the line as well as try and break through the line at two points. The great bulk of the Soviet War Machine is a hindrance in this terrain so trying to manoeuvre units is a shitshow. I attempt to send some troops by sea and air but it's not going so well. Mainly due to the incompetence of the Soviet Navy.

Interestingly it has stopped snowing in December in Finland of all places. The battle has turned into a huge slog trying to wear down defenses with artillery. Occasionally engineers will assault bunkers and fortifications but overall this is a battle that will drag on. Other than the KV-1 the Soviet Tanks are all but useless and the poor training of the men is no match for Finnish Shitposting Skiers. There is some good news though that airborne and infantry have managed to land behind their lines which should draw some defenders away from their frontline.

On the Western Line there is finally some progress and there are gaps forming in their lines to exploit. However marshes make this a hazardous task that even the more mobile Cavalry Tanks cannot exploit. In the East it is still business as usual. The troops behind enemy lines are harassing the enemy and keeping artillery bottled up but they are unable to completely break the deadlock.

Through brute force and determintion, plus the threat that if they don't make it through they will be shot the Retard Brigade finally breaches the Mannerheim Line. The 8th Finngolian shitposters gave them a run for our money in the East but the Retard Army breaks through. Unfortunately they are out of time and Finns declare victory despite the path inside their country wide open. Turns out nobody in the Soviet Union knows how to fight and all their equipment is beyond shit.

At least things can't get any worse for them right?

You can get shots off but the enemy flank, but it will typically turn around if not outright killed. I've seen it where a friendly tanks misses 5 shots but they don't turn, and I've seen them turn after 1 miss. It could be tied to some stats or suppression levels. It also could just be arbitrary, who knows.

The best part of the games are in the vehicular combat simulation and vehicle physics. Infantry combat leaves much to be desired, but the amount of simulation with morale and communications is quite good too. Be sure to check out Operation Star too, as well as Tank Warfare: Tunisia 1943. With Op Star they seem to be porting pretty much all the content from that over to Mius Front (they recently added in Operation Hooper, a cold war conflict scenario in Africa) as well as new stuff, but there's still enough nuance between Op Star and Mius Front to justify playing with both. And with Tunisia 1943, it seems like the devs are leapfrogging updates between MF and TW.

In this webm I made ages ago, this Soviet light tank battalion attacked an area I was controlling. So I ended up forming a 'Pakfront' with 105mm howitzers and a couple of 7.5 cm Pak 97/38's (basically the barrel from an 1897 model French cannon on top of a 5cm Pak carriage), which predictably blew the little T70's away. Here you can see where one tank was shot, had its driver killed and munitions set on fire. This forced the crew out in a panic. Because they were panicking and also because the driver was fucking dead, they obviously forgot to park the tank properly and they were attacking up a slope at the time. So when they left the tank, the burning T70 rolled back down the slope and ended up exploding twice, damaging another tank and killing a few suppressed Soviet troops that were coming up behind the armour.

I don't want to oversell this game too much either, but it really is awesome. Especially the persistent destruction system featured in the game. You get to see trenches lined with corpses of men from previous battles, the burnt out and dilapidated husks of vehicles left lying around or a previously pristine area turned into a complete destroyed shithole, dead foliage and shell craters to compliment hours and days of fighting.

The Royal Army in Persia arrives in that ancient region in December of '41 and spends most of January of '42 redeploying with its HQ in Baghdad, while its spearhead, the V. Armored Corps, dukes it out with Indian, Nepali, and Soviet forces in a valiant delaying action.

The Persians most certainly do not lack the will for fighting, as even with most of their territory in enemy hands, they show not one inkling to surrender. They join our forces in defensive actions and lightning counter-attacks with gleeful gusto - but they sorely lack equipment and training. We lost Tehran sometime in February and would not regain it through military action. By that point we also realized that the enemy were really keen on the Persian front as more and more divisions, both Soviet and Commonwealth, materialized from the fog of war.

We weren't keen on losing our little ally either, so the strategic decision was made in early March to ramp up operations in the area. The Royal Army in Persia is upgraded one level and turned into Army Group Persia, with General Bastico earning a promotion to Field Marshall. Its two Line Corps become the Ninth Army and take on the task of defending the Persian north, where the hills and mountains there make it a place where tanks are useless and it's mostly just infantry slugging it out amidst artillery fire. Their task would be a lot harder if not for our complete air superiority over the area and our powerful bomber force flying from Baghdad, as that was exactly the kind of attritional warfare that the Soviets excelled at.

Meanwhile, the V. Army Corps of cavalry and General Utili's V. Armored Corps form the backbone of the Eighth Army. The Mobile Army Corps of light tank divisions is also taken out of the strategic reserve and attached later on to give it more heft. The Eighth Army is, for all intents and purposes, a Panzerarmee - and their mission is to sweep the British and their colonial slaves away from the vast deserts and plains of southeast Persia.

The Sixth Army is also detached from Army Group East in Italy and attached to AGP. This, in addition to the logistical commitments regarding our amphibious invasion of Crete, means that our Navy is too preoccupied for Operation Meatball to be greenlit. With the Germans barely 150km from Moscow, it is decided that an invasion of the Caucasus right now would be superfluous.

The Ninth Army clashes with Soviet infantry and mountain corps in Northern Persia. Meanwhile, the all-cavalry V. Army Corps finally deploys and begins sweeping Commonwealth forces away from the coast of the Persian Gulf. This relieves our V. Armored Corps somewhat, allowing them to rest from a truly intense period of defensive action. Soon enough, we are able to reorganize to a point where the Eighth Army is able to do simultaneous operations with all its forces on hand and, in a matter of mere weeks, they are able to break through the enemy, capture many thousands of routed foes, and sever the supply lines sustaining the rest of the Commonwealth forces in the area. Here is clearly demonstrated how a Panzer Army's ability to maneuver against an infantry army wins it the day.

As if the Germans didn't prove it enough - the Allies are wrong. Modern warfare isn't trench warfare. It is still very much indeed maneuver warfare.

By early April the Ninth Army is stuck in with the Soviets, the Sixth is just completing its redployment, and the Eighth are redeploying to destroy the remaining Commonwealth forces in the area.

That's my favourite bit as well. You can even see stuff from battles that took place near the current battleground if you look to the sides.

>the Ostfront

Germans, Romanians, Slovakians and Finns - soldiers from all four nationalities, lead by the first's ever famous Panzer divisions, continue on their slow winter offensive. Moscow and its maw of barbed wire and tank traps, ever so tantalizingly close for the past five months, lies before them. The snow prevents rapid movement, and the Russian is adept in fighting in such inhospitable cold. The fighting lasts weeks, and it is bloody, to say the least.

But the Red Army is broken: bled and distracted by fierce the Japanese in Manchuria, disappointed in Persia, and shattered across the breadth of Eastern Europe by the mighty fist of the Wehrmacht and its stalwart allies. Even the Romanians can claim to have destroyed a Soviet field army. Yes - for all the machine guns and artillery pieces a Soviet field army can deploy, one was still surrounded and annihilated by the Romanians, of all people. That must say something about the qualities of Communism, if not the qualities of the Russian race.

But that doesn't mean that the Russians didn't fight hard. Axis casualties must be in the hundreds upon hundreds of thousands. The snow is red with blood, and the deserted buildings of bombed-out Moscow rise in dark, forlorn shapes out into a gunmetal grey skyline festooned by towers of billowing smoke.

The last major firefight ended hours ago, but here and there is a burst of automatic fire, as stubborn holdouts continue to resist the inevitable. Then there is the clatter of tracks and the roaring of engines as Panzer III's and IV's go about the streets toward some unknown purpose. But otherwise, the sight of a newly conquered city is awing in its sheer scale and quietude. Atop one of the shell-holed towers of the Kremlin, a Panzergrenadier takes a draw from his cigarette and smiles.

The war against Russia is over.

Small Italian update.

V. Armored Corps and its three divisions blaze trails through a very undefended Indian subcontinent. With the Indian army destroyed in eastern Persia, they encounter only hastily assembled militia units and Burmese regulars. Poorly equipped and without AT weapons, these are easily brushed aside.

The rest of Army Group Persia sits in Persia awaiting redeployment. High Command is not eager to throw so much men and materiel into a place with no-one to fight.

Meanwhile, back in Europe, the British have expanded the beachhead they made earlier in the year, and it's become a full-fledged invasion of France. Army Group West is formed from two infantry armies and one panzer army and is sent up there to help the Germans push back the Anglo-Saxons and their misbegotten slaves.

The plan was for the two infantry armies to blast a hole through with the panzer army could flood in and attack the enemy rear, but the British proved to be indomitable in their defense. Combat width was quite small (out of necessity, mind you) and the enemy were well dug-in. We had two bomber and two fighter wings but these were easily defeated by the British. Once we lost air superiority, the enemy started bombing our troops, realizing perhaps that this was a major offensive movement.

It was clear that the casualty rates were not in our favor - but that was fine. We would win this battle through attrition. Mauled divisions were pulled out before they would become truly combat ineffective and quickly replaced by fresh reserves. This was a reasonable strategy - we outnumbered the British 2 to 1. However, our KDR was about 1 to 3. With the enemy air forces bombing us at the same time, we deemed this state of operations unacceptable and, after 7 days of fighting, called the offensive off.

And now we sit in the trenches, fortifying our earthworks and registering our artillery. God help us all. It's like the Great War all over again.

Barely any movement along the Western Front from August '42 to March '43 since most of the Wehrmacht is dying of starvation in India. Jesus Christ. Sometimes the Allies like to make attacks on the scale of whole army groups and the combined Italo-German forces repulse them each time. War is truly hell, partly because the AI doesn't take supplies into account in its maneuvers.

>Operation Kebab

The time has come to free Asia Minor from the long-running Islamic tyranny of the Turkic mongrel race. This will be a very large operation consisting of two army groups working together.

>Army Group Persia

AGP will, once again, have the opportunity to conduct dashing and spectacular maneuvers with its panzerarmee, the Eighth. The Sixth Army will conduct a general offensive, as will the Ninth, although the later will focus along the coast with the objective of taking the port city of Trazbon. This, in conjunction with the Eighth Army's grand sweeping maneuver that takes advantage of the flatter terrain of the Anatolian interior, should trap the Turk forces in the area in a large pocket. After they are eliminated, Army Group Persia will conduct a general offensive westwards to take Ankara.

>Army Group South

Here, the front is narrower, and the most dramatic actions will likely be the churning chaos of amphibious landings instead of scenes of panzers charging across the hills reminiscent of gallant knights of old. The first phase of AGS's side of the operation will, of course, hinge upon Constantinople, and the retaking thereof. The Turks also seem to have focused most of their forces in this area.

The Seventh Army will smash through and approach the city from a northward arc. The Second Army will do so from the south. At the same time, the Royal Marine Corps will land upon Constantinople with the mission to take it, potentially trapping enemy units in Greece if they are fast enough. We believe they will be, for AGS will have the support of the main arm of our Navy and its four powerful modern battleships.

Simultaneously, the newly minted XXI. Line Corps, attached directly to AGS, will land upon Izmir in a sort of diversionary attack. They may expand the beachhead however they like. Once Constantinople is taken, Army Group South will conduct a general offensive to take Ankara.

Air support consists of approximately 400 fighters and 600 medium bombers. It will take about a month for all arms to reorganize for this operation.

Speaking of the US: thanks to having been at war with the USSR, the Japanese AI hasn't done Pearl Harbor yet and probably never will. Good news for us.




Also, have this little .webm from that same CM match, freshly made just now. Here we see fire and maneuver in action: the squad MG section hangs back to suppress the enemy, while the rifle section moves forward to destroy the enemy in close combat with their rifles and, of course, grenades.

Funny that you mention it because the USSR has indeed declared war on the Axis again. The German AI is content with leaving me in charge of the entire defense of Western Europe while the Wehrmacht starves and freezes (again) in India and Russia, respectively.

As for Turkey, we did win - but I'm not too keen on writing a narrative after seeing so much stupidity. The game is broken because the AI was never meant to handle a situation like this. The simple fact that it does not take supplies into account when doing its maneuvers kills it - and my willingness to continue. Fuck this.

Then you're forced to fight in the mountains in some vague approximation of reality owing to some arbitrary penalty imposed upon you by the mod in a game that's supposed to be a fucking grand/military strategy sandbox.

That's about right though? 17pdr was much better at taking out tanks than the kwk 36. Against a Tiger a Sherman Firefly is going to be able to eliminate a Tiger before the Tiger can eliminate it. In fact at that range a Sherman Firefly would have sliced through a Tiger II just using APCBC nevermind a Tiger I.

I'm not questioning the ability of a Firefly to destroy Tigers in general - I'm questioning how in God's name it could hit a hull-down target at 850 meters away while running at flank speed. Even with a stabilizer (and I actually don't know if the Firefly did have a stabilizer or not) that's a miracle shot for that technological era.

But then again, there is no perfect wargame. It could also be that my opponent was just very lucky. All five of my tanks were destroyed that match while all four of my opponent's Fireflies survived with barely a scratch. I gutted his infantry though; it ended in a draw.

The shot was guided by the spirit of Bomber Harris.

I agree that was a miracle shot but if there was one tank capable of doing so at that era, it would have been the Sherman also Panther It did have a fairly decent gyrostablizer and suspension for it's time

Who said that?

Saying that German equipment was good heavily downplays their tactical brilliance. Anyone with a braincell knew that Germany succeeded despite their overall trash equipment.

In the red corner we have conscripted dirt farmer

In the blue corner we have 5 million dollar taxi


I bought it a long time ago, and tried forgot about it so I wouldn't regret wasting my money once I realized I paid for hype and ideas.


I think the older titles have torrents, sadly it seems like nobody bothers to figure out how to get past their gay DRM and upload torrents. also yes I bought it

Unsurprisingly, conscripted dirt farmers aren't the most accurate.

He did end up giving one of the infantry a scratch though

It's much better than WiC, I already sinked 900hr+ into RD alone, playing since EE

It's an awful lot complicated thou, 10v10 are shit so you quickly understand why it's called lobby simulator because that's what happens if you want to play balanced, competitive 3v3/4v4 at which this game is IMHO the best. Of course fuck destruction, conquest is the meta peak.

You'd have to learn few guides to fully comprehend game (and memorize key stats) let me know if you're interested

Yeah, and its not there. Russians I think don't seem to like Combat Mission because there isn't any official Russian translation for the game so they pass the developer off as being Russophobic somehow.

Anyway I found link to Russian forum that has links for Combat Mission, but you gotta register to download them. If you use google translate, it seems like Russian word for "crack" get turned into "cure" and "medicine/medication". So forum has full version of CMBN 4.0 with crack and modules, CM Afghanistan, CMBtB, CMAK, CMBS 1.03 w/ crack as well as uncracked 1.04, CMSF1, CMRT 1.03 w/ crack and CMFI with up to date patches but no crack. Any passwords you come across are "1".

The only advantage russia has is Urban combat, because they have much more explosives than american infantry squads. This only applies to Black Sea though, Red Thunder they are just garbage

caa86a  No.111208


Well add to that facts like in Black Sea Russia having absolute shit snipers and no variations of them (while irl they even use anti-material rifles just like USA) whereas USA got over 4 unique sniper units for purchase.

Total lack of rocket artillery on Russian side, the fact that in game AGS-17 and AGS-30 is subpar compared to american counterpart while in reality its opposite, the fact that all USA infantry got optics whereas Russians dont. And shitton of various nerfs to Russia/Ukraine and huge boosts to USA forces.

Well at least using Tunguska in Black Sea was great fun, shit demolished buildings in an instant because of how the shit engine devs use calculated damage

Well historical realism would be pretty hard to code for Cold War shit especially. Soviets would be conscript retards suffering from an unflexiable doctrine designed for fighting on the plains of Eastern Europe while NATO would suffer from tremendous incompetence and troops who are too drugged up to even know what country they are in at any given moment.

I would agree regarding black sea, but it takes place in 2017 so the ratnik program would be in place. There is no reason they shouldn't have modern equipment to begin with, even if they couldn't use it effectively

Soviet doctine was suited for ww3 battlefield, that is central european plains and fulda gap, i dont know where did you get this "doctrine designed for fighting on the plains of Eastern Europe"

Also Soviet troops werent really that untrained and ww2 conscripts tier, USSR had 2 years mandatory conscription so i doubt they really lagged behind in training to their western counterparts. Also the fact that something is "common knowledge" doesnt make it true
