Tactics 1: Concentration in Combat Mission Red Thunder
 
05:34
Time for a new series, where I'm going to be taking a look at some small chunks of various games from a tactical perspective, starting with concentration of force in Combat Mission Red Thunder. I know I haven't covered everything here- tactics is a gigantic sprawling subject, if you think I missed something or you've got something to add, post a comment, let everyone know. If you want to catch up on the Combat Mission Final Blitzkrieg during action report between AjarmanG and myself on the Battlefront Forums here's the link: http://community.battlefront.com/topic/123253-dar-breakfast-in-noville/ This is Combat Mission: Red Thunder, set on the Eastern Front in 1944. I'm playing as the Russians. Many thanks to John who was my opponent in this game, this attack would have been a lot messier if those AT guns had ended up where you wanted them to! Combat Mission is a game developed by Battlefront.com. One of the most realistic tactical simulations ever made, Combat Mission covers a wide variety of military settings, from World War 2 (Normandy, Market Garden, Sicily, Italy and the Eastern Front) to fictional modern conflicts in Syria (Shock Force) and Ukraine (Black Sea).

This is Combat Mission: Red Thunder, set on the Eastern Front in 1944. I'm playing as those pesky Russkies. Mods-wise I'm running the HQS Sound mod (http://community.battlefront.com/topic/118859-hqs-20-cmbncmrtcmfi/), Aris' Smoke and Dust and the High Visibility shell hole mod.

Tactics 2: Surprise in Combat Mission Black Sea
 
05:00
More Tactics! Back to the future for some surprise! I know I haven't covered everything here- tactics is a gigantic sprawling subject, if you think I missed something or you've got something to add, post a comment, let everyone know. Conceived and written before the real conflict began in 2014, Combat Mission: Black Sea is a military simulation depicting a fictional 2017 conflict between NATO and Russia in Ukraine. Command American, Ukrainian, or Russian ground forces in the increasingly sophisticated and deadly environment that is modern combined arms warfare. Mods wise, its the usual Black Sea mix of Kieme's mods for the textures and vehicles, Waclaw's HQS Sound Mod and Veins effects along with Ramblers Night Vision for the excessively green bits. The night footage and the footage from the Ambush scenario with the BMPs were both messy draws against AjarmanG, I staged the Stryker ambush because I've yet to play anyone dumb enough to get ambushed quite that badly. The other footage is from Squad and the Tactical Battlefield Mod for ARMA 3 respectively, the comedy American Football footage is semi-famous but I have no idea who it belongs to.

Tactics 3: Controlling the Battlefield in Combat Mission
 
03:52
More Tactics- a bit of Battlefield Control. I know I haven't covered everything here- tactics is a gigantic sprawling subject, if you think I missed something or you've got something to add, post a comment, let everyone know. This has footage from Combat Missions: Battle for Normandy, Final Blitzkrieg and Red Thunder. The first chunk is from Normandy and is a (wildly inaccurate) recreation of an ancient meeting engagement against General Sir Anthony CH Melchett that I didn't record at the time. The Final Blitzkrieg section is from another meeting engagement against AjarmanG with lots of planes. The last part is a carry on from the game against John in Red Thunder from the Concentration video. Combat Mission is a game developed by Battlefront.com.

In Battlefront's own words: "Combat Mission Shock Force 2 finally updates the ground breaking Shock Force 1 game setting to the current Game Engine 4 environment. Due to massive changes over the last 10 years of Combat Mission development the updating and upgrading of the original content to current standards was no small task. Most of the 3D models had to be rebuilt, reskinned, and reintegrated into brand new TO&E coding. All original scenarios and campaign games had to be checked out, tweaked, and generally improved so they retained the balance and excitement of the originals. Fans of the original game will find that this is much, much more than a new coat of paint." "Take command of US Stryker Brigade Combat Teams (SBCT) and Heavy Brigade Combat Teams (HBCT) to fight against Syrian Army Infantry, Mechanized and Armored units in an arid setting.

CMSF2: Tank Goodness

US armour clashes with Syrian Republican Guard! This is the Allah's Fist scenario from the CMSF2 Base Game. This is all on a new PC (the old one got a little melty) so if the quality seems a bit different, that's because I've eyeballed most of the settings. You can pick up the demo for CMSF2 here: http://community.battlefront.com/topic/133389-cmsf2-demos-released/ and can find details and info on the base game and its modules here: https://www.battlefront.com/shock-force-2/ This is with the excellent HQS Sound Mod, BabaricCo's FXShine shader and Vin's Unit Icons but otherwise unmodded. In Battlefront's own words: "Combat Mission Shock Force 2 finally updates the ground breaking Shock Force 1 game setting to the current Game Engine 4 environment. Due to massive changes over the last 10 years of Combat Mission development the updating and upgrading of the original content to current standards was no small task. Most of the 3D models had to be rebuilt, reskinned, and reintegrated into brand new TO&E coding. All original scenarios and campaign games had to be checked out, tweaked, and generally improved so they retained the balance and excitement of the originals. Fans of the original game will find that this is much, much more than a new coat of paint." "Take command of US Stryker Brigade Combat Teams (SBCT) and Heavy Brigade Combat Teams (HBCT) to fight against Syrian Army Infantry, Mechanized and Armored units in an arid setting. Experience the full range of modern threats to conventional military forces, including irregular combat forces, terrorists, spies, suicide bombers, IED's and other deadly tools employed in the asymmetric warfare of the modern day. Play the Task Force Thunder campaign, more than a dozen carefully crafted battles, or unlimited Quick Battles." #CombatMission
