I just woke up and thought I would share a strange dream I had last night..I was in a theater and I was watching a movie called "Fulda Gap". It started off with a bunch of protesters shouting at the guards who were atop the Wall. One inebriated soldier had had enough and started lobbing grenades at the West Berlin crowd. Other soldiers along the Wall thought they were being attacked and opened up on the crowd. It was a massacre. The scene then shifts between the White House where Bob Newhart is President (don't ask me why) and the Kremlin where there sits Robert Duvall, both preparing for war. The scene jumps to a hugh tank battle in Poland where Shermans, Grants, Pattons, are going up against JSII, and T-34's......then I woke up.....

So, where can I buy this movie?

HAHA. I only know Fulda Gap was my first war game. Not sure I can help with the rest of your imagination.

Ah Robert Duvall, any movie with Duvall is good. Don't know why that is really... it just is.

I think because Duvall chose his roles carefully and did not just do anything that came along...that and the fact he is simply a great actor.....

Must be something sexual. I wonder what Freud would think about all those BIG guns shooting off?

Well, you probably already checked out the freeware Armored Brigade already. Flashpoint Germany is old and only at it's best when creating your own scenarios. I am also curious about the HPS modern titles...

Flashpoint Germany never really interested me and upon checking on it again, I still am not compelled to buy it, and I see that after all these years, it is still full price anyway....

With a couple of adjustments (there are some mod to download at volcano site I think) is very enjoyable and it conveys perfectly the cold war atmosphere.

Do you already own The Operational Art of War III? Lots of Cold War scenarios included there.

Thanks for the reminder as I do indeed have TOAW III...when you have a glut of games to go to, sometimes you forget about the old favorites.....

The scene then shifts between the White House where Bob Newhart is President (don't ask me why) and the Kremlin where there sits Robert Duvall, both preparing for war. The scene jumps to a hugh tank battle in Poland where Shermans, Grants, Pattons, are going up against JSII, and T-34's......then I woke up.....
