    VASLeague 2019 General Discussion

    I don't have the scenario to hand, but the M5 with an AAMG has a MA Rof of 1 and the M5A1 version has an AAMG MA with a rof of 2, so if they are armed with AAMG then that would be why

    Shit ASL producers I will never play or buy from again.

    The way I see it, if I get one scenario that I would play again and two others that I felt were balanced and interesting, out of the same product , I'm coming out ahead purchase wise in regard to scenario packs.

    Modern ASL

    okay thanks for responding. 1. I disagree quite stroingly with lumping ATGMs into a single category; the differences between 1st gen weapons such as Sagger, 2nd gen such as Swingfire, HOT and TOW, and third gen Fire and Forget targeting vis a vis the relative vulnerability of the operator to...

    Modern ASL

    Before we even look at how it might work, the immediate questions I am seeing are: How do you deal with 1st, 2nd and third generation ATGW within the current turn sequence? How do you differentiate credibly between Homogenous armour, Spaced armour, Chobham style Armour and ERA style armour...

    Not so much discredited as no longer treated as gospel just as Dupuy is also not the final word

    Modern ASL

    it could be expanded, but more importantly should it be?

    DTF-7 Fast and Furious German OB question

    232. The 231 was manufactured in both a 6 wheel (rad) [Note 71] and an 8 wheel version (8 rad) Note 72. The 232 [also note 72] was a Long range radio variant of the 231 8 rad and properly should not have the 8Rad designation after the Sdkfz 232 designation as no 232 6 wheel version saw service...
