The Walther CCP is literally "Gas-operated". "The Walther CCP is operated by a gas-delayed blowback system, using gas pressure from the ignited cartridge by directing it through a small port in the barrel in front of the chamber to slow down and delay the rearward motion of the slide...

Rockets/rpgs tend to do the job better especially when you use incendiary or thermostatic warheads. It also requires quite a bit of technical know how to make a reasonably effective one. You need to make decent pressure vessels and have some way of producing the required pressure. Basically for mil...

Other than moral weakness is there any reason why modern armies no longer use flamethrowers? They sound like the perfect weapon to use in situations such as urban combat, COIN or just generally against dug in enemies. And sure, they are dangerous as hell to the user but so is everything else on the...

What is the best aircraft engine for reaching speeds of ~Mach 3? Also, are there noticable effects on stealth from using a turbojet engine (i.e. on a fighter aircraft)? Am I right in believing that electronic countermeasures fulfill the role of chaff for aircraft countermeasures? And what do you gu...

Does it make sense to pay armoured “cavalry” troopers more than infantrymen? If this is done in an armed forces it generally comes via means of a "free" bump in service year so that the troops move up a band in thier pay grade. Generally you tend to have to achieve a specific training mil...

Depends. I doubt it. Your opponent's units have to be really meek for Lasguns to pose any kind of threat of them. Consider: The weapon and unit stats are largely identical to those from the main game. Unlike in 40k, you won't have 30+ guys backed up by orders shooting their flashlights at the same ...

You just build them out of the command squad box, there are several officer options in it be it with or without the greatcoat.

If they're shooting at you, they're the bad guys. Pretty much. Also intelligence and discrete observation. The exact methods will vary in every campaign.
