Views: 2053

The 1809 mod is designed for multiplayer, it does not work well on single player, there are missing factions because the troops have been remodelled and shifted about for online play. The smoke is the standard smoke effect from V7. The sounds should be good if you have installed the V7 music pack av...

the tactic seems very like the light infantry drills mentioned in period manuals, especially for the rifle brigade (later the 95th regiment). in skirmish order, one man would cover while the other moved. this tactic has survived into most modern armies under various names and it is very effective. I...

Yeh, I'm not sure about the first tactic being used in Napoleonic, would have been hard to move when trying to ram down your next cartridge with a muzzle loader. suppose it would work if you tap loaded, but then you would lose alot of power from the shot. I've seen them use the tactic in the movie Z...

Yeah i would have to agree, crossbow is a whole different beasty compaired to a bow. I would have to take a longbow though, I'm an amatuer archer who loves shooting bows, I love shooting longbows most of all (I can only manage 80Ib pull though), and I'm British. also crossbows were outlawed by the c...

The weapons are not really the issue, its the chaps using them. as has been said already, a crossbowman can be trained in a few weeks. The Bowman starts training at about 6-8 years of age, and you end up with a highly trained man, who is very aware of his own worth on the battlefield compaired to th...

thanx for the welcome Ooops, got the I and the V the wrong way round, always was terrible with me Latin. the reliabily issue with the Tiger was only a problem later on really, it was mainly down to the crews not being trained enough to keep on top of the daily maintenance scedule, and the gradual we...

For me its Jackson, the brilliant Major general of 1st corps ANV. a brilliant mind ended when he was shot at Sharpsburg, could you imagine if he was at Gettysburg. he would have pushed on day 1, when the US were dazed and confused, and maybe won the battle.

Blimey, this a tough question. The German Panzerkampfwagon IV, with its 88mm main gun that could brew up a sherman at 2 klicks, had a consistent kill ratio of 5 to 1, on both fronts, and scared the bejeezers out of allied and soviet tank crews alike. The sherman was the easiest to maintain and the m...
