Close Combat Modern Tactics Revisited by Perturabo

This mod makes changes to CCMT data files, it makes HE/HT weaopons more consistent and less insanely-mass-destructive to infantry and vehicles (so, no more tank-destroying 60mm HE mortar shells that can penetrate 8cm of steel.), makes small arms more consistent and realistic and acting more like in CC5 (no more AKM Assault Rifles with range of 2500m, no more L1A1 HMGs, that penetrate 15cm of steel on 3000m, no more 5.56mm SAW that penetrates 2.5cm of steel on 500m!) and adds some new units.

Gung Ho! for CCMT
by DAK_Legion

During the summer of 1942 Admiral Nimitz decided to employ Carlson's battalion for its designated purpose.
Planners selected Makin Atoll in the Gilbert Islands as the target.
The objectives of the operation were diverse: to destroy installations, take prisoners, gain intelligence on the area, and divert Japanese attention and reinforcements from Guadalcanal and Tulagi.
The raider commander himself led a patrol to survey the scene and carry out the demolition of military stores and installations. He counted 83 dead Japanese and 14 of his own killed in action. Based on native reports, Carlson thought his force had accounted for more than 160 Japanese.

CCMT Data mods

Two data only mods by VDV and Spinel.

From VDV:For those wishing to play with more accurate (And powerful) To&E Russian VDV units.. Here is the RedTeams file.. I have not yet got around to redoing specific soldiers, Weapons, Icons, graphics Etc. so in some cases I just used what was a sort of equivalent (I.E. B-11 for spg-9, M-4 as a place holder for AKSU variants in a couple units)

I have added three Armored units and altered Some of them, such as the BRDM to carry a 3 person team and altered BMP-2 armor just a bit to reflect current up armored versions. I'll post this revision in a following post. New units are a AGS armed truck, BTR with AGS and the addition of the BTR-90 30mm equipped APC..

From Spinel: I am also a bit dissatisfied with the lack of AP amunitions by tank guns and that the OPFOR tanks have a tendency to be blown up really easily. Hence using VDV's attachments as a base, I have made some adjustments:

> added a T-90 tank;

> added a (Chinese) Type 98 tank (out of curiosity of how the game would render an Abrams turret on a Soviet tank hull);

> added AP ammunitions for (all?) the tank guns; and

> increased the firing rate of the Eastern guns (even though the autoloader of the 125 mm gun is not as fast as a M1A2 crew, 2 shots a minute is truly unfair and gives the OPFOR tanks too little survivability).

(For simplicity, I used ratios from TOAW III as a way to derive new armor and damage values from existing values.)

I would love to hear of your suggestions (and amendments)!

Operation Urgent Fury - Grenada
A new addition to the pocket mod series by DAK_Legion

President Reagan orders U.S. Marines, Army Rangers, Navy Special Warfare teams, and other military forces to invade Grenada, citing a takeover of the tiny Caribbean Island by "a brutal group of leftist thugs." U.S. troops, along with a small force from six Caribbean nations, overcome surprisingly strong resistance from Cubans, who support the island's new regime. A day after the invasion, the troops begin evacuating 1,100 U.S. citizens on the island.

There are 5 Battles available from your "user created engagements" tab.
