    MMP Updates 2020

    Mucho respect for one who has completed this project, it is just not a scan and link effort, much more goes into it. The cross referencing links are mind boggling once you begin! I started mine years ago and its nowhere near finished. In fact, I cannot devote time to playing AND doing the ebook...

    So what is the next HASL from MMP going to be?

    For those complaining about price.....RF was well over $200 Can..... The shipping represented about $60 of that.......and they *&%#@$ up labeling the Chemist Shop! :mad: I'd really like to see Ortona in the pipeline....seems to have dropped off the radar. Ole J. M. wouldn't be too happy about...

    New RB & RO Maps...when we gonna get them? Crack the whip on them map elves!!! :-)

    Ouch, thought you worked off a scan. RB and RO do not line up, off by half a hex V0 (RO) V45 (RB) different terrain JJO (RO) JJ45 (RB) dif terrain. Although it would be pretty rare that this hex would ever be involved in fighting.

    New RB & RO Maps...when we gonna get them? Crack the whip on them map elves!!! :-)

    Since I need VASL to play, Im in for the proofing help. Ive found one discrepancy, easily visible in O48 and W47, the hex center dot is off ever so slightly. I guess that means its off in every hex, but its not easy to spot....its not off by much...... BUT IT LOOKS AMAZING!!!!!!!! Thank you...

    The Chemist's Shop on the new RB map.

    Its a translation issue. Apothecary....Pharmacy....Chemists Shop, all have a similar meaning. An apothecary is a place where medicine is made and sold, a pharmacy is where medicine is sold and a chemist shop is where medicine is made. Thus An Apothecary is both a Pharmacy and a Chemists shop...

    Red October VASL map?

    I guess I was hopeful that a VASL map was already completed to facilitate playtesting of the CGs. I've waited 10+ years for this, I suppose another month or two wont put me in a straightjacket.

    T-34 the best tank of the war?

    Im merely going on time of unit production. Perhaps production facilities assigned to Tiger production were fewer than that assigned to the Panther. Weight of material/resources consumed would suggest an even less favourable replacement ratio for the Panther. Was production 'cost' even an issue...

    T-34 the best tank of the war?

    Too many technical, logistic and manufacturing factors to come up with a 'best' tank answer. I like to dumb it right down to something simple.....Which tank would I rather be in and which tank would I hate to face. The answer to that is simple, a Panther. Panther production in 44 was decent...

    A few Red Barricades musings.

    An ELR war is risky for the Germans as a couple of botched CPP rolls will ruin the long term plan, but IMO is the most likely path to victory. My Russian purchases usually focus on max Inf allowed, then max CPP (AP mines being priority), Guns, HW platoons and elite Inf coy's are an excessive...
