  1. Rolling Chunder

    I was wondering, as someone who can suffer from moderate motion sickness, how AFV crewmen or passengers deal with motion sickness. Is it something that would prevent you serving in certain vehicles or can it be trained out of you or just controlled with meds?
  2. Any experts on the T34 (early models)?

    Thanks, Jartsev. I had a feeling it was both but had been unable to get any confirmation.
  3. Just a quick one for those who know their WWII vehicles, specifically the 76mm equipped early T34's The Commander/Gunner had a rotatable periscope and a fixed telescopic sight attached to the gun barrel. Each one had basic range and lead markings (with an adjustable range line i believe). My question is; which of these sighting systems did the commander/gunner use for engaging with the main gun and coax?
  4. A little news from Hoggy

    So around the end of September last year some of you will have noticed I dropped off the face of the earth and apart from some brief comms with other members of UKA I disappeared. Well around that time I and my partner Rebecca were expecting the birth of our first child. Sebastian J H Morton was born on the 4th of Oct but things were not perfect. He was born with transposition of the great arteries and needed open heart surgery at 9 days old. All went well and apart from some medication and high calorie food (due to post op weight loss) he is now a happy and healthy 4.5 month old. obviously he will always been under specialist care but things are looking good. As you can imagine all this on top of being a first time parent took its toll and SB was the least of my concerns. It may still be some time before I am back playing but I will be popping in here from time to time to see what you lot are up to. Thanks to all those who did contact me over that time, alas things were hectic and my memory is awful so if i haven't thanked you directly it is no snub I just had a lot going on at the time. Ben P.S. Myself Becky and Seb are planning a trip to tankfest this year, so in the years to come do not be surprised if another tank mad Morton with better gunnery skills than I starts racking up kills in a CR2!
  5. Some Basic Q's About Map Building...

    Hi Sims_guy. There is a guy by the name of Dark Angel around here somewhere. He has quite a rep for map construction and helping others out with the same. If you talk to him nicely he may be able to help you out depending on his RL workload.

    Awesome. Better than the fire station kit i had as a kid!
  7. We're falling behind!

    don't forget that if you pays moar monies you gets betta ammo! I want to fight like a capitalist!
  8. Just dropped by...

    and don't forget the added multitude of new vehicles.
  9. I don't think any with the new turret are in service. Just the trial units.
  10. Sooo. In the current version of SB. Does anyone know which ASCOD variant is closest to what the British army will be getting? Pizarro or Ulan?
  11. With a third night if you include SVU it just became unsustainable. Everyone has real lives to deal with so after the best part of 3 years doing 3 nights a week I think it is for the good of the unit to cut things back.
  12. Until further notice, UK Armour will go from meeting up two nights a week to one night a week. This will be our regular Sunday night slot with the Wednesday meeting cancelled until further notice. This is mainly due to ongoing real life commitments making two nights a strain for most of us. Also Tjay has stepped down from the 2IC position after several years loyal service. We thank him for his training and support over the years and for being the driving force behind the creation of UKA. Well Done Sir!!! His replacement in the 2IC position will be Hedgehog.(Be very afraid!) Soviet VU on a Monday night has also been cancelled until a new CO, structure and training schedule can be arranged. Watch this space. Ben
  13. Thats what we need in the next Battle book!!!
