  Site News: Merry Christmas Close Combat Fans & and an update on CCS!
Posted on Sat Dec 17, 2011 1:32 am by webmaster
Close Combat Player's News Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone out there has a good Christmas with friends and family. For those of you who are deployed, best wishes to you, call home on your Iridium on the 25th and come home safe in 2012!

Close Combat has been a bit low key over the past few months. There is certainly a back log of new submods and patches to add as well as some old files that have been rediscovered. Matrix Games has some obscure news to report on also.

Visits to the site are still steady. Mod downloads have been going steady as well. Part of my plan for CCS in 2012 is expanding the number of guides and continuing to restructure the downloads FTP area. Yes the FTP is still open for anyone wanting to mass download every single mod or to just download older versions that are not available on the website. This plan is my way of future proofing Close Combat mods. In the years to come, as numbers dwindle so will the knowledge of how to make these mods work. CCS will be providing a clean, secure and straight forward site to help anyone through the task installing and playing any mod. Lets face it, mods are not easy to install anymore.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Re: Marine Gazette article on Close Combat (Score: 1)

Written by Major (now Colonel) Brendan McBreen:
I have learned more about small-unit infantry tactics from the “Close Combat” simulation than I
have from fourteen years of Marine Corps infantry experience.

“Close Combat” is a computer combat simulation published by Atomic Games. The focus of the
simulation is on infantry combat at the small-unit level. The series currently consists of five versions:
Close Combat I: Omaha Beach, II: A Bridge Too Far , III: The Russian Front, IV: Battle of the Bulge, and
V: Invasion Normandy.

I am an infantry major with fourteen years commissioned service, seven years with 5th Marines, three
years in schools, and three years as an infantry training officer with the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab. I
have deployed overseas with 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines four times. I have commanded two infantry
platoons and one rifle company. I have served as a battalion operations officer and regimental operations
officer. I am a student of tactics. I have taught NCOs and officers infantry tactics. I have participated and
led tactical decision training.

None of these activities or learning experiences can match the effective and focused tactical learning that
I have experienced through repetitive fighting of the small unit scenarios in “Close Combat.”

“Close Combat” permits a player to fight hundreds of scenarios, make thousands of tactical decisions,
experiment with different tactics, and learn from his mistakes. I would be a far more qualified platoon
commander now than I was twelve years ago. Through fighting the “Close Combat” simulation, I have
internalized significant platoon-level tactical lessons:

• Long unsupported assaults are deadly . Assault for short distances, against a lightly armed or
well-suppressed position. A single enemy soldier can destroy a squad across 100 meters of open
ground.

• A long covered approach is always better than a short open route. Be careful of covered
approaches that cannot be covered by an overwatching unit.

• Every unit needs obscuration. Smoke save lives. Every assault and every withdrawal should use
smoke.

• Fire and maneuver is the key tactic. Use the majority of your force to overwhelmingly suppress
the enemy, (to read the whole essay get back to me and I will post the link or the whole article if there is space)

Thank you for your congratulations. Glad that it continues to operate as normal and ftp is still in force. Zde really a lot of useful information. In general, the stage has been completed, and all remained on the old places, or even improved. So we can safely say that even developed.
