Quote from: Lord Kermit of Birkenhead on 31 May 2022, 07:07:28 AMThe EE-9 is a turret swap with AML90.

Pedantry incoming! Thats only the Mk 3 IIRC. Mk1 had a Greyhound turret Ithink and was only a prototype, the Mk 2 was a Brazilian made turret, and the Mk 4 was another domestic one with the Cockerill 90mm. I m!y have the nomenclature messed up, but I have my notes somewhere from going down a very deep rabbit hole on the EE-9 at one point.

Does it mean anything in game terms? Absolutely not! Does it make me feel better about myself? Also yes!

There are ways & means of accommodating and 'harnessing' your 'pedantry' Smartbomb ... keep this stuff coming ... I'll find a use for it  ;D

Going through my own notes, there's  a lot of interesting stuff I had forgotten about:

Prototypes of the EE9 predecessor with M3 Stuart turrets, re-engining halftracks with the same engine that was used on prototypes.

Colombia upgradinh their Greyhounds to a TOW missile carrier.

A design bureau attempted to turn an M8 prototype into an multiple rocket launcher by affixing a turret loaded with old aircraft rockets from the P47.

I have about 16 pages of stuff on the EE-9 with a lot of tangential info too if you have any interest in looking at it.

Thanks for the new lists, a lot of good stuff on there. One quick question - would the Austrian Gebirgsjager have the "Mountaineer" ability?

Yes - that would seem sensible - just add 5pts to their costs and add the Mountaineer ability.
We can pick that up in a future edit.

This is fantastic! I haven't gotten my rules yet but what are the chances of being able to push this into post 1995? Modern conflicts and such?

You can play the rules pretty much as they are into post Cold War conflicts. There is an Iraqi Gulf War list in the schedule, and the US, French and British lists can already cover the Gulf.

I will (eventually - once I have completed all the remaining army lists, rules & list errata etc. and a couple of other playing-aid PDFs) create a 'Modern' Supplement that will take the rules through to the 2nd Gulf War, maybe the Balkans. This will include lists for other coalition forces - Kuwait, Saudi etc.
But I am very reluctant to create anything specific for more current conflicts, such as Syria, Afghanistan or even Ukraine. I'll leave that for individual players to take forward, as they see appropriate.

Thanks

Thanks mark! I enjoy wargaming pretty much every period in history! Thank you for all your hard work! 

Big Insect

Glad you are enjoying them  :)

I have my 1st non-test-play game on Sunday 27th June - I am dusting down my Dutch who have not seen the light of day for a couple of years. 

I am really looking forward to another massive Cold War Commanders battle.

Cheers
