This is what happens when two of my Cromwell IVs (part of a small troop of Polish armoured) sight a German armoured personnel carrier at nearly the same moment in Combat Mission. The one of the right (just to the left of the fat tree on the right) had moved out from behind the hedgerow across the river and his shot is milliseconds away from hitting (about 175 yards) ... the yellow streak inbound. The HQ Cromwell on the left (at the far end of the red targeting line) is 377 yards away and has just fired, and will strike the German APC less than a quarter second after he got the first one. Needless to say, this stopped the German APC for good.

Good timing because the Eastern Front is now on!

Not the friendliest for MP games but there are a lot of us playing. You have to fiddle with ports and know the IP address to play MP directly, or can now use TCP/IP WeGo but not replay the turns. Jump over to the BF forums to learn about the neat MP stuff.

Also, I didn't realize the Allies had laser weaponry in WWII... awesome.
