Didn't know Marxism had a monopoly on Class Warfare. Oh wait, they don't!

Re: ahhhh california, and of course the media.

What do you expect? 39 of the last 54 years Republicans have been governors of California. Including only 23 of the last 30 years. Mismanagement is mismanagement. Republican "ideals" have ruined this country with their class warfare and obsession with concentrating its wealth in the hands of a very ...

Re: ahhhh california, and of course the media.

tkobo, what are you babbling about? Is it that insane that people would VOTE for higher taxes to improve an "entitlement" such as education? I voted for it. I'm glad enough others did. I'm tired of the misanthropic Rightwing insanity. Coming from a guy like Romney it makes since. He wasn't to contin...

So What's next for BG?

I would say BGS, but people would think I'm talking about Battlestar Galactica.

So what's next for BattleGoat Studios? Galactic Ruler 2200? A shift to a different Genre?

Re: Looking at this pic,it sure looks like "impassable" terr

I dont really get it: a MBT is the most mobile unit in real life. In fact only mountains and deep water will stop them - and the Israelis made some innovative changes to their MBT´s track and some other gear to make their Merkavas cope with the Basalt rock of the Golan Heights. False, the most mob...

Re: Looking at this pic,it sure looks like "impassable" terr

But you shouldn't make the terrain too easily passed for foot units either. 1 mph (or less) is still unbelieveably slow, no matter what kind of false notions of 'high mobility through tough terrain' those who spout the gospel of 'light infantry' might say. A unit of MBTs limited to 2 to 3 mph in abs...

Re: Light Infantry...

You may notice Slash that this post goes some way to supporting you point. But not to the extent of 'ergo all light crap and should be dumped in favour of heavy or armor.' Armor and AFVs without dismounts are at serious risk, especially in close terrain. Did I say that? No. What I said that in the ...

Re: Light Infantry...

Not my theory- just synthesising and regurgitating analysis of others. Yep they often don't bring enough so they drop 1000lbs or even 2000lbs. Yes HE has it's limits that's why armies aren't made up soley of arty and air. Combined Arms is the key. 'Unhearlded Victories' decribes how Superior Fire p...

Re: Light Infantry...

Dust Off, there is a problem with your theories. The 40mm Grenade Launchers and AT-4 CS often don't give the infantry the HE firepower they need. Javelins are expensive ($75,000 per missile) and aren't everywhere at once. They are also very heavy, greatly limiting the number of reloads. In a lot of ...

Re: Light Infantry...

...and most of the APCs lost were crappy BTRs... Now I'm far from being an expert on the Soviet/Afghan war, but indulge me a moment. I understood that most of their ground losses where BTRs because those where the vehicles which could navigate the mountain roads where most AT gun ambushes where pla...

Re: Light Infantry...

Cutless, you're right. I didn't read the whole thing. I read the part about bullet size then the comment about vehicles not being able to get everywhere infantry needs to go. It was like waving a red flag in front of a bull and you lost me. Hence the rant.

Re: Light Infantry...

The Waffen SS has always been hyped. Most of it's officers were incompetent political appointees and party loyalists. Marketgarden was a disaster. As for the Battle of the Bulge, the 101st took a bloody beating. Yes, they held on but at a massive cost. To win wars you have to go on the offensive, no...

Re: United States Tank Units

The British emphasised protection and firepower over mobility. They also emphasis a 'do everything' tank that can both fight other tanks in a mobile formation and that can fight along side infantry in a supporting role. The Germans and French Leopard 1 and AMX-30 went a different way. They sacrifice...

Re: Light Infantry...

I came across this idea elsewhere recently. It's very interesting, and maybe suggests that there is a myth about light being best for urban and other terrain. Air Mobile/Assault benifits more on the operational level. Maybe it's same with light. Have you got any ideas what LI would ideally look lik...

Light Infantry...

So, will SR-CW have 'Light Infantry' as leg infantry? That is one of the issues I've always have had with SR2010. Once you give Light Infantry motorized transport it is no longer light infantry. Though the US did develop light Motorized Infantry as part of the 9th Infantry Division (Motorized). Afte...
