New Command Scenario for Testing: Western Bastion

I have a new Command scenario for testing, Western Bastion. Here you can choose between either “actor” (older western) or “character” (eastern) nuclear submarines to try and enter the Gulf of Mexico against strong NATO opposition. The relevant thread is here , be aware that it’s a rough draft as of now.

The 1990s Technothriller Flail

Having started the Fuldapocalypse Review Blog and being a natural reader, I’ve consumed a lot of books this year. Many have been technothrillers published in the period following the USSR’s fall and Gulf War. With the strongest foe lost, there was a big flailing around for opponents.

Aircraft paint schemes

A lot of aircraft paint schemes are in either the “dull but practical” or “deliberately showy” category. Then you have one of my personal favorites, used briefly by Moldova for MiG-29s.

As I’ve mentioned before, what made me fall in love with Command was its ability to simulate the most obscure and unlikely conflicts. Simulating the American or Russian Air […]

OPFOR Volume 3: A Blockbuster

I’ve made two updates to my collection of un/declassified “OPFOR” manuals in the past.

I figured that, after all my searching, I couldn’t not share them. So here they […]
