  1. Oops...
  2. Thanks Gibson, that is useful and didn't even knew it existed.
  3. I guess its a section of ASLAV-25s and a section of PCs?
  4. We got the new wireless missiles which have a 4.5k range.
  5. Bellissimo! Makes one wish that we had the standard LAV-25 crewable...
  6. T-72B1 1985 A Soviet vehicle that can eat most HEAT rounds and can be pretty dangerous even to fairly modern Western armor if it's used properly. M2A2 If set up in a doctrinally correct way then they and their infantry can engage enemy armor from between 4.5k to 0m. A platoon of those set up in preferred terrain would be deadly for any force attempting to attack through them. For someone who occasionally enjoys using infantry the M2 is a lovely little thing. Technicals No armor, small, fast, and can be fitted with most weapons, including Milans and TOWs. Whats not to like? There is a reason they have been used by lightly armed forces since the 1980s to now. If armed with ATGMs they can be deadly in the tank hunting role as the Libyans found out in Chad.
  7. You sir are a lovely individual. Thanks for the links and info!
  8. Tank fired HEAT? I was of the impression that HEAT was not available for the Arab tankers due to its expense. I guess this means that they either had a few rounds of it in the load out, or only better trained crews had it, or the IM were mistaken and the damage was caused by Saggers. Any information if the Israelis captured main gun HEAT rounds from the Egyptians and Syrians and what rounds they may have been?

  10. It would certainly hit something, especially if you are aiming at a zip code or larger.
  11. Two dead. Hopefully no one we know.
  12. @Furia Keep in mind that Iraqi Hezbollah is not necessarily Lebanese Hezbollah. Different leadership, experiences and origins. Though they probably have the same patrons. Kataib Hezbollah started out as a Shia insurgent group in Iraq fighting the occupation. It received support from the Iranians. After the IS invasion Kataib Hezbollah became a part of the militias (Popular Mobilization Forces) that the Iraqi government raised to try to stop IS' gains in Iraq.
