A full blown dismounted Inf feature ( with seperate units for the transport and inf components ) has not yet been added to the engine. It won't make it for BFTB either. The engine does model the dismounting of inf in a more abstract way. Whenever, such units enter an area threatened by effective enemy fire, then a dismount flag is set and they move at foot rates. However, the unit does not split up into two components. As a result you cannot give such a unit an order to enter terrain that only a foot unit can enter. I realise that this is not totally realistic but modelling this will be a big job. It is in our top four on the wish list.

Hi Arjuna,

Probably a premature and/or potentially loaded question........ but I'd love to know what the other 3 top enhancements will be.

  • Cross River Assault
  • Minefields - laying and clearing
  • Off-map fire support - ground, naval and air

  • A LoS tool that shows all areas seen by all units, like in RTS games.
  • Sound ranging or aerial recon for counter-battery fire? Not sure how realistic or relevant this would be to implement, just wondering.
  • The manual indicates nothing about AA actually performing as anti-air. Any chance that stationing an AA unit somewhere can reduce the severity of airstrikes there, like in Combat Mission?
  • A notification when a bridge is fully primed (or is being unprimed) would be nice, so I don't have to check with the engineering unit constantly to see if they're done.
  • Come to think of it, a given estimated time to finish priming a bridge would be useful. An ETA when using the pathfinding tool with a unit would be too.
  • Does aggro level in CotA affect on call arty? If not then it should, since bombardment messes up ambushes.

  • OK consider that added to the list.

  • Already on the list.

  • This has already been incorporated into the soon to be released BFTB.

  • Good idea.

    Hmmm. I was under the impression that low aggro is good for ambushes, but turns out none of the references mention that. Anyway I was suggesting that aggro affect not only direct fire, but also calling for artillery. Because if I have an ambush set up, I don't want the enemy to bunker down or fall back from arty fire before they run into it.

    • Moving a rest order location shouldn't automatically set formation to 'unspecified'. I keep accidentally moving battalions when they need sleep.


    edit: wow, I didn't even notice the BFTB forum until now.
