Alpha Jet is fine but it's almost 80s.

Yes but why wouldn't the G.91 and EWR work? Specifically the EWR, I can't find much info as to why it was never adopted.

wordy quote I still want to keep the F-4 in relatively strong numbers, but I suppose it's probably worth it to invest in a healthy balance. As for the F-104, I'm not sure if I should touch the plane. From what I've read, the horrific safety record is partially a matter of pilots being not well-trai...

Interesting, thanks. I didn't think of those points. If I want a lighter weight attack plane and I want to keep the German arms industry afloat, would the Alphajet be a good investment? The biggest drawback that I see is that the Alphajet has a much smaller payload capability, and most other figures...

I may have asked this before, but I can't find it. For my Cold War Prussia, is the F-4 Phantom a good plane to outfit the majority of my air force around? As I see it, the thing is a fantastic fighter-bomber - it has the speed to attack Warsaw Pact forces without exposing itself to their excellent ...

Tag urself I'm NS RP. :p I'm going backwards apparently. I started as alt history, joined an Earth map, then a closed world, then switched to a RL culture (Still there?), raised my population before dropping the cap altogether. Dropped hard MT and moved to just "realistic". And that's whe...

Why, you may take the most gallant sailor, the most intrepid airman or the most audacious soldier, put them at a table together—what do you get? The sum of their fears.

Question about the Battle of France.

After the Dunkirk evacuation, there was still a significant number of Allied troops in what would become Vichy France. Were these troops ever in a position to seriously threaten the German advance, possibly hold on to what remained of France without surrendering?

It will be back, but only when/if they can figure out how to integrate it into an individual weapon. Did they not try, you know, making it single shot and lighter? A semi automatic grenade launcher has always seemed excessive and unnecessary to me. At worst, you lose a single rifle. Hardly a big lo...

I hardly think the T-34 was a bad tank. It wasn't quite on the same ergonomics level as the Sherman, but a good crew on a T-34 could easily beat a Tiger or Panther. More importantly, T-34s weren't breaking down every second by 1944.

I understood that reference! On the Tiger I, I was just reading about an action in August of 1944 where four Tigers of Kampfgruppe Schürer were able to trap 25 Soviet tanks and kill 14, somewhere south of Gradnas. How is a scenario like this possible? Easily. I can give complex analysis (But I'm la...

How quickly can Chaparrel, Rapier, and related vehicles be reloaded? With only a few shots each I'd figure they would run out of ammo relatively quickly in heavy combat.

because HESH has uses outside of anti-armour good anti structure. APFADS is good anti armor, but will go through most structures. If your country is most of SE Asia, there aren't a whole lot of large buildings to blow up. In the jungle, canister shot and coax will cut through most realistic obstacl...

Do you need it? In Central European terrain most engagements can be expected to occur at ranges well under a kilometer. Guided projectiles are only really desirable at engagement ranges over 3 kilometers. This will only be common in desert and steppe environments. At ranges under 1.5km - still long...

Aren't halftracks less mobile than regular trucks when on-road, as well? A deuce and a half was a better logistics vehicle for the Red Ball Express, at least before the rains turned everything to mud in the autumn.

Rotational policies do the opposite of what you imply. They improve soldiers' individual mental health and fitness at the expense of their organization's ability. This is specifically the part that I'm interested in. I assume you mean that mental health was improved because they get out of Vietnam ...
