This stuff looks great! Always love seeing what you come up with @Rico

A few quick pointers that might help. The newest update to CW, patch 1.01, adjusts the ammo loadouts of the tanks and IFVs to be more realistic to the period, and the Soviets get the Ssh-68 helmet. There are a ton of other fixes and improvements (LAW launchers are now collapsed when being carried and extended when fired) but those are two standouts.

If you set the Soviet infantry equipment to 'Fair' or below in the editor, they will be equipped with AKMs and RPDs, as opposed to the more modern AK-74s and RPKs.

Cool, thanks -- completely missed the news that there was a patch out.
 
Latest action ... a 20mm Vulcan AA vehicle that has been laying suppressing fire on @Nathangun 's infantry spots enemy BMP in distance but doesn't open fire... then the 20mm gunner has an extremely close shave with a BMP-fired ATGM that zips by just inches from his head.

The, of course, instead of hitting reverse, they just sit there until one the of the BMP's comrades pumps a few 30mm autocannon shells into them...

The vehicle is kaputt -- amazingly only one crewmember got wounded.

Rico will we patch up for this battle or we will wait?
@IICptMillerII which era of CW is the most balanced? I'm working on a campaign using the top portion of this map. Flash Point Campaigns Red Storm will be useful as a data base for campaign ideas.
Hmm, that is a tough one. It depends on the equipment being used in a given year. I would say 1980 or 1981 as long as the US avoids Abrams/Bradleys, or the M60A3 TTS. The M901 does have thermals and the ITOW, but I think it is fair when put up against the multitude of Soviet ATGM carriers, and also helps to even out the armor fight for the US a bit. But if you're looking for low tech only, it would go as well.
The Soviets should avoid using the T-80B and possibly the T-64B as well. I would also avoid the SU-25 for air support, and the BMP-2 was pretty rare for the time period so BMP-1s likely make more sense.
Otherwise the equipment should be relatively on par. Of course, if you stick M48s against T-72A's its probably going to be pretty lopsided, but what I listed above can be considered the real balance breakers in this context.

That's what comes to mind off the top of my head.

By the way, the skins look great! Especially the Soviet stuff.
