Re: air support

Seret, good point, but minelaying aircaft would be on the board for only a few minutes of actual time so proably not worth the painting effort.

Re: A difficult Question - Hedges

Sorry my bad about the pictures. Interesting perhaps I need to grade hedges better. We already allow no obsticle to tracked hedges, perhaps I should ration hedges that are obsticles a bit more. For practical reasons I don't want to have a hedge at 5% bogging. One of the key issues at least to me, is...

Re: A difficult Question - Hedges

Our assumption is that all would need to gross at 90 degrees to the hedge and going slowly, the chance of getting temporarily stuck woul be 15%. Is that relativly easily?

Re: Ultra modern

I guess its not the figure scale but the ground scale. We do use ATGW's and battle management systems as part of our games. Not so much counter battery as the support is often on shoot and scoot so counter battery does not get much of a look in so too many rules for too little gain. Drones we have n...

Re: A difficult Question - Hedges

I was not considering Bocarge or similar I agree that is an engineering task to clear through them. Apparently the A mericans used a number of methods to get through them even at the end but the Culin device seems to be the most well known but not all units adopted it. I was thinking more allong mor...

A difficult Question - Hedges

Our current "game" at 1/144 is upto bound 70. Its been a long (but facinating slog) time, every platoon position taken has beed hard and costly as the tearin is close and the emeny "hugs me close" to hinder the prepondrerance of my artillery. However the real killer are the hedges and ditches. We ha...

Re: air support

We wrote rules for Air support but now never use them. The reason is that while you see in some games aircraft sat on the table for bounds that is well adrift from reality. In Afganistan aircraft came very close in but againt no real AA of any sort except a few AK47's not much of a threat. In cold w...
