It really doesn't matter, if you win of course you'll have to provide your real name and address anyway for the prizes to be sent smile_o.gif

Well, the question about the infantry visible on the pic is quite important as we don`t know If we have to avoid contact or no...Do we have to think about them at all?

You have to think about everything, as a real soldier would, as CAPT Gavin Kane will do smile_o.gif

Yeah, but In real life I would know if those guys are my allies or no, since they are `visible` from the point where the pic has been taken wink_o.gif

Would be better if we should not take into concideration those guys at all just thinking about the "possible" danger, not the visible one (if they`re not friendly of course)...and that would reduce the ammount of e-mails sent to you with a competition entry cancellation requests btw biggrin_o.gif

Indeed, and if that tank tries to do something to him, he'll just roundhouse-kick it.

This is so waterproof. I'll get that first prize biggrin_o.gif

Well, while my question about the infantry remains unanswered due to the Placebo`s wedding, there`s another one...

Quote[/b] ]you have a large area of terrain with a number of visible Southern Sahrani armour targets and a number of positions to fire from, where would you choose to optimise the damage you can cause, as well as trying to ensure you can escape afterwards

a quote from bistudio.com

Quote[/b] ]Any "Western/USA" vehicle should be considered Southern Sahrani.

a quote from Placebo

Well, It`s obvious that there are some tanks in the picture belonging clearly to the "north" and only one that might be concidered as a `us friendly` south...

Is It a misunderstanding? Or am I really blind...

Best possition to destroy one target isn`t the same as best possition to destroy a few targets, when realism and ammo limit matters...I`m confused.

@Ralph Wiggum: Actually that was the first place I clicked biggrin_o.gif

@funnyguy1: Judging from the uniforms seen so far on screenshots, I marked all the units I think are northern Sahrani forces with a green circle and the southern Sahrani/ US forces with a red circle.

Hope i got all of them, did anyone see others?

I think you're making things too complicated. I think we should just find the best position to attack _any_ of the tanks shown (trucks also???) . . .

I'm going to submit my entry a few days before the end of the contest. I want as much time as I can studying the pic, watching the forums for clues and consulting real military people (my dad lol).

That`s probably a wrong thinking m8!

They`ve said we have to attack "southern" targets, Placee said that trucks are friendly, so there`s not much left to choose. What`s still confusing me is that on the official page says: southern targetS...

first off, very cool idea BIS thumbs-up.gif

secondly, there are definitely some questions that need to be addressed:

1. as others have brought up, there seems to be only one armored target on the southern sahrani side, not to mention that it is stuffed into a corner while the rest of the screenshot has northern units...

2. due to the current pixel-by-pixel choice, i can see a lot of people essentially choosing the same spot but having different coordinates. will the selection be made by whichever person gets the exact coordinates or will anyone within a certain radius (say, 5-10 pixels) be taken to the second round?

3. another issue brought up by others is the lack of information regarding the situation. i would suggest checking out some of the marine corps gazette´s tactical decision games (TDGs) for an idea of what information is useful (and realistic) to have:
