  1. Knew a guy who's unit's helicopters played this when doing operations. If you like marches, Hitoshi Sakimoto is great at composing them lol. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yw9zs6CBNo
  2. Correction, a 152mm gun launcher, I don't care if it launches guns accurately, I like it anyways lol.
  3. Didn't we have Bradley ADF vehicles in the past decade? They were called Bradley Linebacker. http://www.army-technology.com/projects/linebacker/ Great writeups and info by the way, I enjoy reading your articles Damian.
  4. That video was epic lol.
  5. I use the AN/PAS-29A, it's a clip on thermal you can put on your night vision goggles to get the same fusion effect as the PSQ-20's. They've been around for about 8 years. It can spot a man at 300 meters easily under some very dark conditions, vehicles under much longer ranges. My unit runs about 5 hours on 1 CR123 battery. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ig8q6OWrMlY The UK has a similar version as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRETwaTIpTc
  6. I'm guessing RedWardancer is talking about upgrading the dismounts to use the NLAW Storm anti tank weapon, hoping they would fire it under Zero Dark Thirty conditions. Since the Javelin comes with a thermal imager for night fighting, he wants a small anti tank weapon to use at night. I'm guessing the individual sight for the weapon has to be night vision capable for them to use it in the sim this way.
  7. 9 years with the sim now, and like munckmb said there's something new to learn and discover every time I play it. Completely worth the price of admission many times over.
  8. Welcome aboard!! Impressive real life experience along with some of the other tread heads here.
  9. Bug #4861 had me laughing from it's description lol. Nice list of fixes.
  10. The third video above is misidentified as a Kornet, but it's actually from an export TOW system, the Kornet has an unusual spinning flare.
  11. Thanks for the info Gibsonm, yea the unit comes with a Pelican case, and it's Military spec as far as battlefield optics goes, just wondered. Good advice by the way.
  12. Gibsonm, do you guys ever get to use the small hand held thermal imagers when unbuttoned like the AN/PAS-23 and other's? They are essentially 1x unity magnification, but with a 30 degree or more FOV and can scan a large area quickly, at least to where you might notice things out of place or have the larger optics of the vehicle more quickly hone in to make better identification. This is the unit I own, video of it outside of a car driving, the unit has been around for 10 years or so now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1aYjBAHToU Conditions were humid, and wet after a rain, in Hawaii.
  13. I see, thanks for the info Assassin 7.
  14. Wonder if the M1's fuel tanks have something like this: http://www.arm-usa.com/arm-r-safe-white-paper.html
