How to Ruin a Tank Battle Position - Combat Mission Shock Force

Do you remember Combat Mission Shock Force?

In a rare example of early victory, I attacked with two platoons of Abrams tanks. My objective was in an area that was being used as a withdrawal route by Syrian Republican Guard armored units.

Mirage M-2000Cs for DCS World - This Will Come in Handy!

RAZBAM's initial roll into the runway of the DCS virtual World was not as bad as other third party's, but not as great as Belsimtek's (Tiger II, Mig 15 bis, F-86 Sabre, MI-8, UH-1H Huey).

Take off towards a BVRish engagement against a Mig 21bis.

Panzer Battles Kursk The Southern Flank - AAR - No Smoke Can Silence the Cries of the Dying

This is an AAR for Panzer Battles Kursk The Southern Flank. The scenario is #0708_05 Teterevino South. Massive spoilers ahead. You are warned.

From the scenario briefing:
Teterevino South, South of Prokhorovka: July 8th, 1943. (Scenario Size: Regiment. Soviet Human vs German AI) Major Mikhail Konstantinovich Belov had been given very clear orders. His 158th Guards Rifle Regiment had regrouped at Tetrevino South and was to attack Luchki South from the East. Voronezh Front intended this to be a diversionary attack, hopefully pinning or dragging away reserves from other parts of the German line. The assault would not be easy. The Guardsmen had to cross a deep, kilometre wide valley before assaulting the defenders on Hill 210.7. After breaking through they were to move towards the town and capture the bridge crossing the Donets and clear the town of any remaining enemy. Voronezh Front had provided both air and artillery support in the hope that the attack would be considered a major thrust rather than the intended demonstration.
