Re: Marauder Base Camp

Tegyrius already nailed it, but I just wanted to add that 4e canon has the Soviet 9th TD around that area as well, with a listed strength of 2650 personnel and 88 combat vehicles. While 4e doesn't have the entire unit going marauder like the earlier version, I think it would absolutely make sense fo...

Re: Military unit travel speeds

Agreed - thanks Ursus as always for the excellent breakdown. If the units are moving too quickly to be foot mobile, I think the obvious answer there is that they're not foot mobile. The 5th is only listed as having 19 combat vehicles, but the verbiage above seems to indicate that those "combat ...

Re: Military unit travel speeds

I tried to work out some of the mapping on this. Here's what we know for sure: 0200 April 10th, 2000 - The US 5th moves out toward Lodz following the 12, and then switching to the 8 Highway. Intending to take up positions east of Lodz by April 15th. Sometime within the next 7 days - The US 5th moves...

Re: Timeline question

I don't think we're too far separated at all in our thinking here. In the time since the last post, I ended up thinking some more about the VII Corps and pulled it out of Europe entirely, leaving only V Corps (and maybe some supporting divisions?) sending elements into Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hung...

Re: Timeline question

This is all really excellent - thanks again for taking the time to share your knowledge on the topic. Regarding Bulgaria, yes, I kind of see them as being a REDFOR necessity, particularly because so far as we know, based upon comments allegedly made by FL, that NATO is fairly intact at least up thro...

Re: Timeline question

Thanks Ursus - that's a quality analysis. Here's my own, based upon what we know from 4e canon, assuming NATO stayed together (which FL seems to have indicated that they did). I also believe Yugoslavia would have fallen apart, as FL's canon largely stays similar to reality at least up until 94 or so...

Timeline question

Hey all, a question for Tomas and the writers at FL regarding the timeline in T2K, specifically regarding the lead up to Operation Reset. The Ref book states that in 1998, the Soviets manage to break through to southern Germany, taking Nuremberg, Munich, and Leipzig by way of Austria and the Czech R...

Re: Clarification for ROF 1 and ammo dice

There's a ton more nuance to this change than one would initially realize. It means that the first round fired is essentially always the base dice roll with modifiers. Then the choice to add ammo dice means plainly adding more rounds onto the target. While it does very slightly increase the complexi...

Re: Questions about grenades

Heyyy huge thanks to you both for that information. That is enormously helpful and clears up a lot for the community. It sounds as though the plan for the reprint for ROF (at least from how I'm reading this) is to leave in the ROF 1 for things like grenade launchers, mortars, and higher caliber cann...

Re: Questions about grenades

@Fenhorn Just touching base. Any new information on the ROF topic? I told Tomas about it, so he knows about it and hopefully there can be a clarification about it when he moves on to UO. Super cool. Thank you very much! -- For what it's worth, there also continues to be a lot of questions about gre...
