    Desert Victory Points

    Do the special DVP calculations apply to typically non-Desert equipment in a scenario using DVP? e.g., Landing craft (say a seaborne evacuation from the Sahara), aircraft, etc? Or do they only apply to ground vehicles and guns? I'm thinking the latter, but I'm not sure. TIA

    HASL map storage solutions

    I'm reconsidering my method of storing my HASL map collection and wanted to see how the hive-mind handles things. I currently have a simple large box/tray that's big enough for most all my maps to lie flat and can also easily slide under the bed in our guest bedroom. However, I find that...

    Thanks to Doug Rimmer for posting it. It will auto update inside VASL and is available at the usual (suspect) location. Let me know if you find any bugs with it.

    According to my sources a Sherman was 9 feet tall (or 2.7432 meters) and a Jagdpanther was 2.72 meters. Was the cutoff 2.73 meters?

    Do we need a green/conscript mistaken panzerfaust attack rule?

    Apparently Otto Carius wrote about having lost one of his Jagdtigers to a panzerfaust attack by Volkssturm militia troops who had never seen a Jagdtiger before. Personally I think the geek carrying the PF tripped and it went off. ?

    US 76mm vs 17pdr vs 7.5cm KwK42 L/70

    Does anyone know of good reference materials that discuss the above referenced guns and explains the performance differences between them? Was it simply the difference in calibers? Propellant weight/efficiency? Metallurgical differences? Other differences? TIA

    Keeping track of MFs/MPs for later motion attempts

    Question for the hive mind. I'm re-reading Ole Boe's "Stop And Go Traffic" and was wondering what various mechanisms people use to keep track of previous motion attempt-eligible movement for motion attempts later in the phase? Cards? Number chits? Dice? Side notes? Or does it not come up...

    Armory pages?

    Do armory pages exist (in some form) for BFP products? I'm trying to organize my (previously) intermingled BFP product counters by module and I've got a number of counters (German for sure and I haven't gotten to all the Russian counters yet so there might be some apparent orphans in there as...

    One suggestion I'd like to see MMP implement ...

    Ditch the multi-page folded charts and tables. I'd rather have more chart pages that can be put in sleeve protectors. Just my 2 cents worth.

    Why we need Submarines in ASL ...

    From the Wikipedia page of USS Barb: "Upon completion of her 11th patrol, Barb was sent to the U.S. for a yard overhaul and alterations, which included the installation of 5 in (130 mm) rocket launchers at the Captain's request. Returning to the Pacific, she commenced her 12th and final patrol...

    Has anyone else seen what appears to be a scuff through the printing of board a? In my case hex aJ1 looks like it got scuffed in production, shipping or handling. Just curious.

    US TD overhead armor protection?

    I know that HOB has their supplemental armor rules (sand bag, concrete and steel applique variants), but has anyone ever encountered rules or SSRs for the field expedient overhead armor modifications for US TD? According to New Vanguard's "M10 and M36 Tank Destroyers 1942 - 53": In both Italy...
