  1. Using (Reimer Editor)RE 3.10 and I believe 2010 on the version of Access though I could be wrong on that one. I can get the hud3 to load into it. I point it to the right database but it refuses. Don't stress on it. I will make do with the hud3 for now. Thanks for the help. Kelly
  2. Okay I've found myself with some more time these days so I wanted to mess around with the hud4 database in Ms, problem is I can only load up the hud3 database. I point it to the hud4 database in the directory but it fails to load each file. Help? Thanks Kelly
  3. So looking at making some maps for some scenarios to do. Curious how you go about that (making sure it's the right scale etc)?

    Thanks Tony! Sure looks like the Russians knew of this back then (well enough to teach the Iraqi pilots to do this). Strange I never really heard about this tactic until just recently. Makes you wonder how well the aerial battles would have worked out with the Soviets.

    Hellos, I am hearing quite a bit about 'notching' AAMs these days. I am curious was this a tactic back in the Cold War or is this something new? Thanks.
  6. Convoy, medium opposed NATO transit. Pretty straight forward scenario. I got two SAGs, one convoy of merchant ships and limited air assets. To win I just need to get the convoy to Narvik alive. I left all the surface ships on their starting courses and launched 3 F-16s to the north to CAP. Then sent one of my two P-3 Orions to the north roughly 151km off the coast to see what's out there. It didn't take long. My CAP detected incoming aircraft and I sent the fighters to intercept and called up some more to reinforce after changing their loadout from guided to air-to-air because I'm not sure how many Soviet aircraft I'm up against. There is only one enemy base to the north but I'm not risking my aircraft on that target, at least not yet anyways. My fighters must have been out of position because the Soviets volleyed off a barrage of AS-14 Kedge at Narvik before I could intercept them. My fighters smoked some Su-24 Fencers along with some MiG-23s. It wasn't all one sided though, 2 of my precious F-16s went down in a gun battle with the remaining Migs and Narvik suffered 22% damage to the ASMs. I pulled back the remaining fighter since it was winchester and launched more fighters that just completed their loadout change. This CAP I placed slightly north of Narvik in a covering position, hopefully they are in a good position to stop any more direct attacks. Meanwhile my P-3 located an enemy SAG along the coast to the north-west of Narvik. I immedately sent my two SAGs racing for that enemy group and had my P-3 launch it's four Harpoon ASMs just to see what was there. All four were shot down as expected but it used up some SAMs and I got a good idea of how the formation is laid out. I decided to keep the P-3 orbiting in the vicinty of the enemy SAG as a 'tattle-tail' so I would know where it was at all times. Next up I launched my other P-3 to commence a Harpoon attack on the SAG and about that time my northern SAG which consisted of 1 Oslo class FFG Trondheim and 4 Hauk PTMs rounded Rost Isle chain and headed straight for the Soviet SAG group, I hope I can get these guys into attack range but I seriously doubt it. I started getting air contacts to the north and sent off some more fighters just in case. This turned out to be nothing more then afew fighters that I would up chasing around but never getting a shot off. The P-3 coming up from the south launched it's Harpoons at max range and immedately turned tail and headed home. The 'tattle-tail' would be my eyes for damage assessment. The enemy SAG lofted abunch of SAMs and took down 3 of the harpoons. That final one found a Mod Kashin class destroyer named Slavny and slammed into it's side and detonated. The poor damage control abilities resulted in the destroyer rolling over and sinking shortly after the impact. As the Trondheim SAG approached, the Soviets saw them and launched SSMs, they also took out one of their own in the process. Three SS-N-22 Sunburns ripped into the Krivak II frigate Razitelny and sent her to the bottom. Not exactly sure what that was about. The wave of Soviet SSMs wiped out two of the Hauks and damaged the Trondheim, I decided to continue the attack with my remaining ships. Apparently the AI anticipated this. I had some of the F-16s rearm again for guided to begin attacking the SAG when I picked up another wave of enemy aircraft approaching the Trondheim SAG. I moved my CAP to intercept but like before they didn't get their until after the missiles were fired. A pair of Su-24 Fences went down along with some MiG-29 Fulcrums. The enemy ASMs made short work of my remaining Hauk PTMs. Now my memory fails me because I don't recall getting any missiles off from the Trondheim group but according to the log they did and managed to damage the Admiral Spiridonov a Udaloy class destroyer. Now I order the Trondheim to head back and around Rost to hide from the Soviets since it no longer has anything with which to hit them with short of gunfire. Once the F-16s rearmed I launched them at the enemy SAG and kept them low all the way to the launch point. The Mavricks made short work of the remaining ships. Now at this point I thought all I had to do was drive the mechant convoy to Narvik and declare myself the winner. Yea not so much. Someone launched some torpedoes toward the convoy. I quickly moved the P-3 to the contact area along with some helos. The Leander/3A class Andromeda ship absorbed the torpedo for the merchantmen and sank. The P-3 and helos promptly sunk both a Kilo and Tango boat. The contacts seemed to fade out at this point and I sped up game play until I was told I won a minumum victory. Game over . Good pace scenario and lots of different kinds of units and threats.

    New maps?

    I just wanted to a improved look to the maps is all. I've been lurking about here and there lately. Not really interested in going the Command route (pretty expensive as well).

    New maps?

    I was wondering if it was possible to get a new improved (maybe high resolution) maps for this game? Or is that beyond the realm of possibilities?
  9. I agree at giving the AI time to develop enough information before launching all it's missiles. Maybe have the recon/patrol unit fly/sail slightly off axis for several minutes in an attempt to get a better picture of the situation, if after a certain time no more contacts arrive then have it commit to an attack (or not). I also agree on putting a value on the target, maybe even put a value on groups as well. Overall this would help to make conducting reconnaissance important as it is in real life.
  10. You don't ask easy questions. I think the mere mention of a Exclusion Zone around the Home Islands by the Soviet Union would probably be enough for the merchant ship supply to evaporate cutting Japan off from much needed oil especially since it is the Japanese who are being aggressive in this instance. Japan has worked very hard to alienate themselves with regards to Asia prior to and including World War Two. Don't forget that there are also American forces at several bases in Japan which could result in possible 'accidents' with Soviet forces attempting to attack Japan proper or Japanese assets. Mig-29 and Su-27 aircraft were coming online along with some pretty solid Soviet submarines (Akula and Sierra classes) I believe any Japan advantage would be very short lived. I am not sure on the Japanese F-15 air to air refueling capable at that time though given the close proximity of the Home Island to the battlefield (Kuril Islands) that probably wouldn't matter much. The Japanese did have E-2 AWAC Hawkeys which would help in any air to air battle and the Soviet Mainstays were just coming online as well. Some of the forces the Soviets could use would be in the West and be required to either sail or fly out that way taking time to redeploy. These are just some thoughts I hope would help you out some. Not sure how/if people here on this forum are playing Command, I for one haven't purchased that game (not saying good or bad). There are some Harpoon scenarios for Russia vrs Japan available. Respectfully Kelly
  11. Well I guess I'll throw my vote in here. I've just come back into the community after a long break dealing with life etc etc, so I don't have the distinction of knowing the work that many have done over the last few years I've been gone. 2008 Pooner vote for me is :Freek Schepers for the reasons other's have stated. I've not met Freek yet but from what I've heard/read he deserves this. Now the other canidate I do know: TonyE for lifetime award. That's my vote! Sincerely Kelly D. Crawford
  12. This will be an interesting situation to see how the fallout plays itself out. Seeing reports on Yahoo that the United States passed along a warning recently about a waterboarn terrorist attack on the city of Mumbai. Maybe both Pakistan and India governments won't survive this episode....
  13. Well I'm going to throw in my two cents here.... The timing is interesting, the American's have a President Elect who has stated he will be going back after the Taliban and Al Qaida(sp?) in Afghanistan and willing to make pin point attacks into Pakistan. The Pakistani army/government has made some progress in getting some of the tribes to turn against thier former 'guests'. Now the potential for a major confrontation with India will draw the Pakistani army to it's western border and away from the strongholds of Al Qaida/Taliban. There's also the pressure that America is already putting on the current government of Pakistan over this issue along with numerous missile strikes in the eastern region. I wonder if Al Qaida/Taliban didn't help train/finance Lashkar's nasty attack on India. A win-win situation for Al Qaida and the Taliban.... Kelly (there's a conspiracy in everything) Crawford
  14. Here's the latest on the Burma front, Dewayne has launched a counter-attack towards Bangkok along the Here's China, the white circle denotes Dewayne's forces that USED to occupy Homan before they got the boot in my drive to Sian.
