An Officer Answers
01:35:50 – Jacob asks “The new book looks Excellent, so I have to ask, what are the best formation choices for taking as support to my Canadian Leos or US light motor company?”
01:40:00 – Battleraizer asks “For Skill / Morale tests on 3+, you know pretty much it would go through, and for 5+ you know not to try unless you are reaaaaaally desperate. But what about 4+? How do you evaluate Skill / Morale 4+ and what to do with them?”
01:42:30 – Joel asks “Not specifically related to West Germans, but, as a newer player I need to ask: should I leave my attack helicopters off board until my opponent’s AAA is dealt with or are my helos my best bet for dealing with anti-air?”
01:44:35 – Vick asks “Noticed that the new Marder2 and CANNONJAGDPANZERHETZER2 have AT13 and AT16 HEAT respectively.What exactly are they supposed to hunt? AT13 & 16 are waaaaaaay overkill even against uparmoured warrior bradley bmp3, but too weak to even realistically kill a T55. All other prey items are more easily and point-efficiently dealt with via currently existing tech like Leo1 / milan infantry / marder 1 and M113 brrrrt”
01:45:45 – Chris asks “How do you see the German conscripts being used? Could you see a NATO horde rush being effective? Hasselhoffs greatest role was Dodgeball.”
01:50:00 –Seb asks “Coming from fow I notice almost no nato infantry is in plastic, is there a reason for this? Also at the risk of breaking the podcast again, what sauce would you pair with chicken?”
01:52:20 – Mike shouts “I have no question other than BAYWATCH NIGHTS HAS ACTUAL LOVECRAFTIAN SOURCE MATERIAL AND THAT SHOULD BE REFLECTED IN TEAM YANKEE.”
Going to tell the kids this was “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”
– Bill asks “What was his better role, Knight Rider, Bay Watch, or Dodge Ball (you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a ball-RIP Patches O’Houlihan)?”
01:55:30 – Malcom asks “Given the addition of the Kjpz to the game, what other obsolete but still in use vehicles would you like to see added next? Many have already mentioned the M48 with the 105. What else? AMX13? Centurion?”
Shoot and Scoot
2:00:00 – Its time to shoot and scoot as we see if our Dice of War dice can get us out of trouble
