Re: New Units or Army Lists for Battlefield Evo: Modern?

The information I was using was both pre- and post-afghanistan. As you say, in pre-afghanistan platoons, 1 soldier had the option of replacing his AK with an SVD. During afghanistan, company commanders tried to get hold of as many SVD's as possible as they found they were very useful in a supressio...

Re: New Units or Army Lists for Battlefield Evo: Modern?

I agree that your system is more how the Russians use sniper rifles. My information, which is two decades old, indicates that one rifleman in in each platoon is assigned an SVD, rather than it being an additional soldier. What is your source? You also mentioned points costing these units. Would you ...

Re: New Units or Army Lists for Battlefield Evo: Modern?

Btw Sevya - I have to thank you actually. Now I've gone back and looked at the list I've realised there are a couple more mistakes with the BRDM2 which I hadn't seen - 1 was a copy and paste error with the transport number, the other was the fact that I had confused the Russian BRDM2 with the Polis...

Re: New Units or Army Lists for Battlefield Evo: Modern?

I just found this thread, so sorry I'm chiming in so late. I really like what's been done with the Russian recce platoon. I do have a few questions on it, though. On the BRDM-2, I am fine with putting the Kord 12.7mm machine gun on it in place of the KV 14.5mm, since I would have used the same stats...

Re: BF:EVO Force List Updates

I just downloaded the Russian one. Thank you. I'll look through it and see what I think. I can see it has some of the older vehicles I was going to add myself.

BF:EVO Force List Updates

Some friends and I have been playing Battlefield Evolution: Modern Combat recently, and I was wondering if anyone had made any updates to the force lists from the core rulebook. I was particularly looking at the Russian and Middle Eastern forces. Has anyone done any work on these force lists? Would ...

So, may I suggest that you/we write up an S&P Article or ten to start up the Contact! section again? Without submissions, the section will not likely exist. WE can create that section ourselves.

Several illustrations from the Classi/MegaTraveller eras depict Imperial Marines in maroon or dark red battledress (including the box of true 25mm miniatures that Grenadier released in the eighties).

When I was in the US Army National Guard, our issue uniforms consisted of:

Summer weight Battle Dress Uniforms (BDU's)
Winter Weight BDU's
Class A/B uniform (Dress/business casual)
PT/workout uniform.

There were, of course, accessories, such as a field jacket, belts, boots, headgear, etc.

I'm curious where the fact that the Imperial Marines uniform is maroon came from. In the Imperial Encyclopedia (MegaTraveller) it says the starburst insignia on marine uniforms is maroon. Is there some resource I don't have access to that delineates out uniform colors? As for the Imperial Navy, thei...

Since it sounds like the girlfriend is an NPC, the biggest factor hasn't been addressed. What does your GM think? None of the excellent viewpoints expressed here will have any effect if the GM running the game doesn't agree with them, or even read them. That said, the old Norse seem to have at least...

For a few PC figures in 15mm, I strongly recommend RAFM's support staff set, on this page: http://www.rafm.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc? It includes a selection of races. They're called different things, but I'm pretty sure they used to be Traveller figures. 3 Aslan, 2 Droyne, 2 Humans, 2 robots and 2...

I'm going to go through the questions a few posts up. This is all my own thoughts, so don't take them as absolute answers. Yes, the erect legs are the way you want to go with this.

That would probably depend on definitions. A biologically grown human shaped body does not necessarily come from human DNA. To comply with local ethical standards, a company might feel compelled to develop a biological frame from other genetic stock. Why was their blood white? I have no idea, but it...

So, I take it the biological frame (pg. 8 in Robots) is not what you're looking for.

We know religion exists in the OTU, since there is a specific government type of "Religious Dictatorship". In S&P 80 there's an article about the Sword Worlds that mentions an Aesirist religion that appears there. However, religion is often a subtle element in people's lives rather than an in-your-f...

Alex_greene's idea is just exactly the sort of sourcebook that pushes games from rollplaying to roleplaying.

Actually, I was pretty much an atheist until the scud attacks in the Gulf War. I probably would have been in a lot better shape mentally if I had found the religion I now follow before the war.

The destruction of industrial facillities may have drawn some attention before that, if the subsector authorities were aware of it.
