    ArmChair General PDF ArmA Tactics Article...

    The ArmChair General is not only an excellent tactics and strategy (real world, history, and game) monthly (or maybe every 2 months) print publication (magazine)... but they also have a very nice and informative web site... one of my favorite writers from there publication has released a 15 page pdf on using tactics in Armed Assault, a very worthy read...

    and just FYI, he (and his co-writer) also has a number of other tactical articles over at ArmChair general.

    I agree Mag.50, I got a subsription of Armchair General and I found it interesting. It is to my knowledge the only regular writing that touches about combat sims. Nothing will replace of course the USMC publications library for its amount of info's but the publication tempo of AG makes it very attractive.
    By the way when will continue with your series of articles on Sim HQ about ground forces strategies.

    I'll agree that CC was one of the best games/series ever made, from a tactical perspective.
    No, that's not mine. Someone brought it to my attention towards the (then) end of the TTP development, and it made me reconsider a few things and ultimately added about a month to the development. :)

    I get this guys points, thou he's probably not much of a gamer, he does give some good info... you can't be the only tactical writer on the internet you know. ;)
    Like I said, pet peeve of mine. I have no issues with people writing tactical stuff as long as they keep it game-focused. Seeing talk of hand signals, prisoners, etc devalues the work in my eyes.

    If you want to read a quality tactical article that is full of extremely good information, I'd recommend this instead:
    http://dslyecxi.com/files/close_comb...e_workbook.pdf

    The big difference with that is that it's by a Marine, for Marines, discussing simulation, lessons learned from them, and how they correlate to real-world situations. It has loads of great info in it, too.

    All the guy was trying to do is give a brief introduction to tactics and coorelate it to ArmA. At face value, it is not that bad and does exactly that. It is definitley not end all "book" on tactics similar to what you pumped out. If you want to compare it to the thousands of pages of manuals in the military on tactics, yes it falls way short.
