Post critiquing ASL's depiction of AFV deployed by one or more belligerents during said conflict, on grounds that (i) coaxial MG was also capable of AA fire through the rear turret covered arc and (ii) track width to weight ratio would certainly correspond to low ground pressure.

This specific criticism is then used to buttress the wider point that ASL is a cartoonish mess and an utterly flawed simulation.

Post suggesting that previous post about wide buttresses, simulated or otherwise, and ASL is more appropriate for RSP than a wargames forum.

Edit: grammar corrected in post but poster fails to include an edit summary. Others become suspicious and fail to notice subtle humour in post.

post wondering why the mods are paying so much attention here, and speculating what form the obvious BGG bias against wargamers will take this time.
