Thanks Pete. In the second video I posted the KV is not getting LOS to an 88cm gun. I wondered if it was because the vehicle is so large. LOS from the KV was being calculated from an area on the tank that was not the turret?
We call it one way LOS. It exists is most Close Combat versions. The conditions to meet One Way LOS are difficult and it's usually a rare occurrence. You're description sounds like it's very common in GTC, I have limited experience with that game. In any Close Combat the advantage to tank duals usually goes towards the side whose tank is stationary. The tank that's moving to make a shot has a disadvantage. This is usually because the maneuvering tank's turret and hull and not lined up to the target.
Here is a short video of One Way LOS from CC5: Stalingrad.
To stream I am using XSplit Gamecaster. It was free and easy to setup. I was streaming CC in about 20 minutes after installing this program. Found a few other CC streamers on Twitch as well, looked mostly vs AI though.
Quite unfortunate what the internet became and what it has been and will be used for. It's really a shame this only the infancy. With all the metadata that exists on us, disinformation can be sent directly to us now. It's virtually impossible to avoid the metadata collection but with the right training you can defend yourself against disinformation.
Disinformation campaigns are as old as propaganda. One could say they are one in the same.
If what you say is what you need, more than an article given a thumbs up by an intelligence agency, then search for it. There is such a tidal wave of information on it, one can cannot simple prove it in a post here.
Since you don't believe there's a concerted effort out there to spread disinformation I believe that maybe you can't recognize it in the first place. Maybe you have never thought to research it. The challenge is to you to research and understand it.
Asking to validate data gathered by intelligence firms? All any of us here can do is post news articles, which will most likely be called fake by you. It's great you're asking more questions, but maybe try and be genuine about it. Start by telling us which source you would believe and why you think it's reputable.
In August of 2004, Zappi, Homba, Bambam887, RedScorpion and MOOXE all pitched

and found this site to thier liking. I hope you had time to check out some
of the great Close Combat mods and our forums. I'd also like to thank
all the members of our volunteer staff that have helped over
the years, and all our users that contributed to this site!
