    What is this structure?

    The real shame of this is that the 3 or 4 hexes this will represent on an HASL map will probably never see much happen. Still, the conversation and cooperation here has been nice to see. Leave it to Jan to get us all thinking.

    What is this structure?

    Aerial photography was (and is) often done with a stereo camera - two images, from slightly different angles. When you look at the paired photos through a viewer, it gives you 3-D relief. And helps avoid conversations like this one. :) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereoscopy If you had a...

    What is this structure?

    It may be a depression, but it is on higher ground than the river - look at those cuts running perpendicular to the water. The ground slopes up toward that area.

    so - is that shadow a sunken road? Trees? Spoil? If that's a stereoscope image, find the partner and get a viewer....

    What is this structure?

    Quite possibly - my feeling is that whatever it is, it is casting a shadow just like all the other above ground structures.

    What is this structure?

    The shadow is on the wrong side for that to be a depression. If it was a depression, that big black shadow on the top of the area would be bathed in sunlight, no? Assuming those other structures are above ground.

    Yeah, who ever heard of a Soviet prison, eh.

    What is this structure?

    Amazingly, there is Google Street view footage of this location. Those grandstands seem to be apartment buildings.

    What is this structure?

    If it was a depression, wouldn't the shadow be on the other side of the hole?

    Some pertinent news from MMP

    The scale is warped from the start (40 metre wide streets) so it seems pointless to apply real world scales to one part of the simulation but not the other. Just use the 1:285 scale vehicles. It's simple, there's no conversion necessary, and honestly - a typical 1x2 or 1x3 DASL mapboard is so...

    What is this structure?

    Could be a curved roof rather than a curved building - like a Quonset or Nissen hut. My old neighbourhood was built on the site of a British Commonwealth Air Training Plan airfield. This old hut has survived. Viewed from above, the shape seems similar to the aerial photo above?

    Onslaught to Orsha

    Nice to see the British and French getting coverage in ASL. The Seine crossing is pretty much forgotten today, despite Ken Ford doing a really good book on the subject. I did a small writeup of the action in my Tactical Wargamer's Journal. I get the impression that despite the German defeat in...

    'Likes' have now been replaced by 'Reactions'

    System seems to be working fine. However, I would suggest removing the negative 'scores', even for dislike (thumbs down) and angry reactions, and giving them a positive value as well. If the rationale for the "Reaction" score is to see who is provoking the most thought and conversation with...

    Croix de Guerre Second Edition now available for preorder.

    https://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Battleground-Books-WWII/s/27 Here's a link to the Battleground books - the ones I have are really good (they also do a series on First World War battlefields) - D-Day and Market-Garden stuff mostly. But I see a title on Arras and some other 1940 titles.

    Croix de Guerre Second Edition now available for preorder.

    Osprey has gotten leagues better in the last decades, compared to their state of the art in the 70s and 80s. Agree that the Campaign books are really well done. Even better are the Battleground Europe series - but I doubt they've covered Dinant yet. Then and Now has always been good but as you...

    Pretty sure that was on the History Channel also, though you may have the paradrop confused with him Tokyo drifting across the frozen Seine in a semi-trailer truck.
