  1. Dear all, With this message I would like to inform you of change of administration at Rolling Thunder. As most of you already knew, I am stepping down as organizer. The reason for this is that I do not have the time anymore to set up quality events. It took a while to find a suitable successor, which is why you haven not heard from me / RT for a few months. I would like to introduce you to Nemesi, who is now the new owner/organizer of Rolling Thunder. Nemesi has lots of experience in Arma MP organizing as clanleader of BDR and also as organizer of Arma Tactical Combat. Nemesi is from now on your point of contact at RT and will be working on setting up RT #11 and further battles. Keep an eye on the RT website for updates. Nemesi will make an introduction here, later on. Thank you to all who participated in Rolling Thunder the last 2 years, it was a blast. You might still see me on the virtual RT battlefield as a regular participant. Best regards, Eric Dutch RT founder

In order to secure their interest in the region, multiple bases were deployed in Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. Russia, seeing this as a growing threat, has sent a division strong force into Kazakhstan, to send a physical message to the U.S. In the morning of August 12, we join A-company,1st Tank Battalion of the U.S. 2nd HB Combat Team, as they respond to reports of an incoming armored force 20 miles from Camp Wilson. It was only moments until they would make contact with their enemy, later to be identified as one of Russia’s finest, the Bear company of the 74th Guards from Novosibirsk...

  4. Rolling Thunder (since 2010) is a series of bi-monthly PVP events in which large scale tank oriented battles are simulated. RT is for those who always wanted to participate in such an event, but never found the people to play together with, if not to play such a gametype in a more organized large scale environment. The RT battles are standalone events. For each battle there are new registrations. This means that the battles are easy accessible and less demanding/time consuming for the players compared to the more common PVP community campaigns/series. The Rolling Thunder participants vary from infantry players looking for a break from their regular gameplay, armor gameplay newcomers to professional tank combat simulation gamers all with the aim to have tactical, teamwork orientated, well organized and enjoyable battles. In these battles, tank company versus tank company operations are simulated. Both reinforced tank companies consist of a command element, three tank platoons (3 tanks per platoon), a recon section, a anti-tank section and a logistical element. The total number is 44 versus 44 players. Key features: • Large scale, stand-alone, tank v.s tank PVP battles • Reconnaissance, AT and and other support units involved • ACE supported • Tactical and teamwork oriented • Easy registration / participation (as a group or as an individual) • For each single battle a different map, different sides and renewed player registrations • Capture and Hold system Come and take a look at the website to find out more!

  7. Hello all, I would like to bring to discussion the relation between game server performance versus its players on server. Ofcourse there are topics about this, however I thought it would be nice to more specify some problems at hand. Please share your opinion about this, preferably supported by some kind of proof. Statement 1: Servers' / multiplayer games' performance is quite dependant on how far its players are located from the server Statement 2: Player ping level and server performance are directly affiliated with eachother Statement 3: Individual player internet connection speed and server performance are directly affiliated with eachother

  11. Hi Slatts, I guess it would be best to let that up to the modmakers' creativity. All are welcome to present their creations. But to answer your questions: Tanks have highest priority for us as these battles are mainly about tanks. (Armored) recon cars are useful as well. We try to compile sets of vehicles/units within a same faction. For example, on one battle we had a re-custimized modpack for the Sadam era's Republican Guard (by Lost Brothers). It contained tanks, apcs, trucks and related troops/crew of the same "faction". You are welcome to share pictures and/or a first sample when you have it, so we can take a look. R/ Eric
  12. Dear modmakers, For the bi-monthly held, large scale tank vs tank PVP event "Rolling Thunder" I am looking for mod makers who are willing to (make and) make available their tank mod for battles. So far we used different tanks / addons for each edition, however, in order to maintain this diversity we need additional input. If you plan to make or already made a customized Arma 2 tank and are willing to contribute, this may be a good opportunity. What we are looking for: - Arma 2 customized main battle tanks, preferably ACE compatible - Optional custom crewmen - Optional related scout cars, transport helicopters and support trucks What is in it for you: - An opportunity to have your creation(s) be promoted to and used by a very wide public, supported by a strong brand - Guaranteed slot reservation for you on Rolling Thunder battles If you have interest and/or questions, you can contact me by PM. Info on Rolling Thunder can be found on the website Best regards, Eric Dutch Rolling Thunder Admin
