  1. I'm such a loser!

    Last weekend, I was going to play paintball with my closest friends on a mountainside. The only problem is that its a mile long hike up the moutain through the woods and brambles to get there. Being the ass I am, I decide to wear a friends camouflage hunting suit. Unfortunatly for me, its slightly too small, so my movement is severely limited, so I feel like a damn knight in armor or something.

    Anyways, I'm walking up the mountain taking little baby steps since I'm wearing this suit, and when I'm almost to the peak, I pull a muscle in my leg. So now I have to walk all the way back down, and I get stuck in the thorns and brambles more times than I can count.

    But I decided to loan my new gun to a friend, and it performed excellently smile.gif

  2. I'm definently loving my demo of Steel Beasts. I only have the M1A1 available, which is a shame because I'd really like to try out the Leopard. So far my best record was destroying 12 enemy vehicles in instant action, before those crazy T-80's and BMP's overran me sad.gif

    And I have a question about the game that hopefully someone can answer...

    Alot of the time when I'm fighting against BMP's, they fire their gun apparently up in the air. The projectile definently isnt a APFSDS, because of its high trajectory and comparatively low speed. I'm guessing its either a HEAT or a missile. Could anyone tell me which it is?

  3. I was playing the Steel Beasts demo, and I was firing off all the weapons during training. I saw some defininte ricochets when I hit a T-80 or T-72 with my .50 or Coax from a long range, but to my suprise, even the APFSDS rounds occasionally ricocheted off T-80's at long range! wow.gif

    I even fired a few into the ground, and I was very suprised to see them hit the ground, then fly upwards off into the sky. I would think that such a dense and heavy round would just dig itself into the dirt, but I was obviously wrong sad.gif

  4. I'm thinking caffeine might have stopped affecting me as well, if thats even possible. I can normally fall straight to sleep after a Mountain Dew. Maybe thats just not enough caffeine though?

  5. Whee! I finally beat the IL2 Bomber campaign!

    And now I've come to the conclusion that the Panzer II was by far the best anti-aircraft vehicle in WWII, since it knocked me out of the sky at least 10 times tounge.gif

    You're missing something here.  It's not up to the American soldiers to choose if they want to fight.  It's up to the politicians and the president, and his advisors, etc.

    Soldiers/Marines just follow their orders.<span id='postcolor'>


    Surely you dont mean the BOARD PRESIDENT too!?!?

    Fortunately, that episode ended peacefully.

  8. If I'm not mistaken (and I may be, I dont know too much about WWII armor), then the Kingtiger was just a bigass heavy tank. It was slow as molasses, but had an excellent gun, and superb armor. Its my absolute favorite tank of WWII smile.gif

    The normal Tiger had the same caliber gun as the Kingtiger, but wasnt quite as well armored.

  9. Speaking of tankers... could you PLEASE make some tankers for the German side? I absolutely LOVE your german troop pack, its one of my favorite addons.

    I also downloaded a Panzer IV from some other guy, but its crew were Resistance soldiers which didnt look quite right. And if I remember correctly, your normal soldiers also had a strange error when you could see like the helmet strap on their helmet when you were in 1st person view in a vehicle.
