Douse the whole battlefield in petrol and throw a lighted match on it?


There was an SPI WW3 board game that included that option. It noted that the scenario could only be played once. Pretty realistic then Smiley

The issue of dummy unmarked minefields was never addressed either.  Tongue

I thought the rule was that a player is not allowed to ask "Sorry, what was the rule about spotting an unmarked minefield again?" more than once every 10 minutes. Smiley

Many thanks all - some useful thoughts and suggestions

There is a whole question around 'new tech' and night-fighting etc.

What's the issue about 'dummy minefields' ... or am I opening up a can of worms again?

Among my group, at least, "unmarked dummy minefields" exist only in the mind of the opponent when you ask the question I mentioned just as they are about to move something.

The unmarked dummy minefield area should be modelled with craters and destroyed vehicles

I think there’s an unmarked dummy in all of us.

Add the COPPERHEAD laser guided projectile to the US M109 self-propelled 155mm artillery unit.

Thanks,

The US army never issued Copperhead.  There are rules for tac nucs on the CWC forum, they aren't as devastating as people think, it's the long term effects that cause problems.

Pull up a sandbag . One of my jobs in the distant past was as a trooper of a stay behind party whose job was to call in tactical artillery strikes up to nuclear on Soviet follow through troop concentrations in 1 BR Corps, NORTHAG. Quite pleased it never came to anything....

Eh? From Wikipedia:

"Copperhead was used in Operation Desert Storm, with 90 rounds fired against hardened Iraqi fortifications and radar stations. One of these strikes caused an Iraqi unit to surrender. It was also used in the 2003 Operation Iraqi Freedom."

Also, the USMC call in a Copperhead strike at the end of Battle: Los Angeles . . .

A while back I did some revisions to the hit and save ratings for a number of vehicles based on more recent information since CWC was originally printed.   What I found was that M1 tanks were over-rated along with a few others and that some were under-rated.   Many were fine the way they were though.   Since then I have been building a data base of hit and save values that now includes vehicles that have been introduced since the rules were published.   I can make this available to the playtest group. 

If you are happy to share this info now - to me directly in the personal messages - we can start to review and incorporate into the draft of CWCII
Many thanks
