Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup
copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the
“chinesecomanders” file in the game directory. Change the commanding
unit attributes as desired.
Comanding Units of Platoons Have More Attributes:
Search for the file ChineseComanders. in your Force 21
directory. Open it with a text editor and modify the
attributes to your liking. Be sure to backup the file
Knowledge is power. Use your recon vehicles to probe enemy
positions, then engage the opposition with your heavy armor.
Use your weapons’ different ranges to set “kill zones.
” Deploy TOW Antitank Guided Missiles to the rear, place
tanks a bit forward, sprinkle the area where you wish to
engage the enemy with mines, and then let loose when the
enemy arrives. It is the synergy of multiple weapon systems
simultaneously engaging the enemy that wins battles.
Place your less capable tanks (such as T-72s) on the reverse
(that is, opposite) side of the hill from an enemy advance.
The enemy won’t be able to see the tanks until they crest
the hill, and then the T-72s can pour shells into the enemy
at close range–hopefully negating any technological advantage
the enemy has. That’s the theory, but it didn’t work too well
for the Iraqis at Medina Ridge.
Use the right weapon system for the right job. Helicopters
are great tank busters, but are vulnerable to thin-skinned
antiair vehicles. Use tanks to clear the antiair vehicles
before employing your choppers. The helicopters are also
good at popping up from behind ridges (using the Set
Helicopter Height option), shooting a couple of missiles,
and then diving for cover before the enemy can return fire.
