FGM Colour Sergeant
Both M10s had cover arcs, yes, which the Panther stayed just outside of. I learned over the course of the game (my first H2H with armor) that the M10 turret rotates r e a l l y s l o w l y and so got in the habit of pre-aiming their turrets with cover arcs. D'oh! As @Badger73 rightly pointed out, tank destroyers are not tanks!If I had to guess, @axxe may have given them a target arc command and my Panther reversed out of their arc. His flanking maneuver would no doubt have been successful if I hadn't started the Panther reversing.
Yea I can't explain that one. I wonder if @axxe had given that halftrack an area fire command?
Sounds like another useful "Rules of (CM) War" entry this.Live by the cover arc, die by the cover arc.
CM LOS sucks. And, what's the point of the dark blue part of the blue/pink line. I try to use it as an idea that if something of the same height as the unit your are using to target from, comes into the location where the line is dark blue, then the targeting unit will be able to see and target that something. So I set up a test to verify that, and sure enough the test showed it to likely be untrue. I say "likely", because I realize that units don't always spot a something that is in a area where they have clear LOS (light blue) so you might think my unit just didn't happen to spot the approaching bad guy. But, it was a test, and something should have eventually become spotted by my targeting unit. Despite waiting patiently, through many turns, the two units did not see each other. So I've decided, that to determine if it should show a portion of the LOS line as dark blue, the game flips and coin and...ahhh, never mind, you probably heard this one before.Agreed. LoS "glitches" are my biggest complaint with the CM2 engine.
