  1. Yes please, perfect for me!
  2. I hate to think it will never be
  3. That is a drop bear, not a Koala. There is a difference.
  4. Found a reference that is still available: http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3296462,00.html I do recall a list of how many of which model were damaged etc, I think it was from the IDF. Can not locate that.
  5. So has the 4 in Lebanon 2006, with few damaged. In fact some of the propaganda at the time showed a Magach on it's side, claiming it was a knocked out Merkava 5. I have gone to try and find the stats for the Merkava performance, can't locate those figures at the moment. But I have confirmed that the 4 entered service in 2002.
  6. Merkava 4s would be nice
  7. Why do you say that? I prefer to have a wide selection of vehicles available and I don't care if they have playable crew positions or not. I use Steel Beasts without using those positions and enjoy it immensely. I have never played DCS : combined arms, but a quick look at their web page gives me the feeling of inferiority to Steel Beasts.
  8. Definitely the Merkava!
  9. It's always sad when a beloved pet passes away. We always have a pair and a spare (as the oldest ages). The oldest went a few months ago. Having the pair left made it easier on his mates. Our youngest is a rescue and it appears they lied about his age, he has taken so long to calm down. And we have no idea where he gets his absolute hatred of the postman from!
  10. Thank you, for these stats! Though personally I have not seen anything overly annoying. Patience solves most of my problems. Version 3 was excellent and four is even better! Thank you (and the team)!
  11. I'm still fond of the Lee Enfield!
  12. No, it's the mice! Just this week I heard of a 'study' in logic, apparently based on the number of possible universes. Their conclusion was that it was highly unlikely that life as we know it evolved, in this universe. So we must be in a simulator run by someone else.
  13. Also parachutes get 'heavier' when in water and the platforms are heavy, even without vehicles rigged to them. I have seen a training vid of US soldiers drop in a jeep. But vehicles hit hard, and you don't really know where they will land, so I would not drop in a vehicle. Normally equipment and troops are dropped separately, at least everything I've seen.
  14. Thank you That does sound interesting!
  15. Just got home, so I'll reach for the shelf: Military Briefs: 1- Australian Fire Support Vehicles 2- Israeli Tank Based Carriers 3- Australian Centurions in Vietnam Also next to them I found Australian Military Equipment Profiles vol 4 The M113 and M113A1 Armoured Personnel Carriers in Australian Service 1962 to 1972 by Michael K Cecil Oh and a quite thick one by John Myszka Israeli Military Vehicles The First 50 Years 1948 - 1998 Enjoyed them all
