Steel Beasts ProPE - The Cavalry Fight or Lack Thereof

I was browsing the summer 2017 issue of Armor magazine and, besides other very interesting articles related to the Cavalry branch, I noticed an article about "fighting for information".

It reminded me of one of the toughest scenarios I played in the series (Hasty Attack by VolcanoMan) and it prompted me to re-assess the tactics of the US Cavalry units present in the scenario. In the video above, I explain why I decided it was best not to fight for information. Make sure to check it out at YouTube for HD.

Hi JC,

good video. If you really want to explore this topic, here is a link for you: Link

I can't get the link to work right now, I hope this is just temporary. It's a big PDF publication (656 pages), called "To fight or not to fight? - Organizational and doctrinal trends in mounted maneuver reconnaissance from the interwar years to Operation Iraqi Freedom."
