  1. Hi Mark, sorry this is shaping to be a one week on and one week off thing, but I have a big bid due tomorrow and it looks like I won't be able to make it tonight.
  2. Hi Mark - as long as my wife's work needs don't intrude at the last minute, I will be there.
  3. Mark - I have work commitments tonight sorry.
  4. Sorry for late reply - I should be good for tonight.
  5. Sorry Mark - wife has to stay late at work, so i am on kid duties tonight
  6. Hi Mark. Cant be there tonight sorry. Wife has to work back late and I'm childminding. Would like to know more about how a hot wash works though.
  7. Haha - no problems Conn - I had killed a whole section of Blue dismounts earlier in the mission, so I had it coming.
  8. Well that was a great experience in the tradition of RTs! Thanks Mark, Panzer-Leader, Mirzayez and others for hosting, planning and skippering Blue Green and Red. A real appreciation of what a 1990s Australian outfit would have had to deal with. I played missions 1 and 2 right through but had to bail on mission 3 with 20 minutes to go (easter sunday family things commencing). Mission 1 - I (with DBoy) was leftmost recce callsign (M113 and Scorpion. Managed to kill a PT76, a Hind and some infantry before being steadily attrited down at the airbase. Tempo means everything and Red could push hard, meaning lots of repositioning and desperate close-range fights. 21 dismounts destroy ENY PT76 after it survived a belt of .50 frontally. An LMG operator was killed and this meant I couldn't remount my infantry, so had to leave them in place .50 did prove deadly to this Hind down near the Williamson airfield when Red air were dropping troops Clearing up some air-dropped infantry with DBoy ... before a red RPG takes out my track Mission 2 - i had a troop of Leopard AS1 supporting ASLAV recce moving to contact on the east of the AO. We didn't cover the road well enough and red sneaked a bunch of stuff south. There was some bumping into each other and some close range fights. Here one of my Leopards hits a Naval T55 close in. More knife-fights with T55s And some more Mission 3 - pre-dawn, stumbling around as we assault north. I'm in V11 ASLAV in the east of the AO, aiming to seize OBJ Baird - Huttonvale Outstation, a crossing point for Moody Creek and the door to red's landing area. I had bad lag from the get-go in this scenario, with friendly and enemy units sliding, airborne and bouncing around. Very hard to hit anything and shamefully I was responsible for (and the victim of) blue on blue incidents. We got to OBJ Baird after bumping into a red motorcycle and the objective seemed clear, though the bridges we needed were down. At this point I should have realised Baird was a trap and got out quickly - infantry left behind along the creekline hit my ASLAVs as we crossed and then pre-plotted ICM strikes smashed our forces there. It was nasty fight with the red infantry having the upper hand. My lead ASLAV is potted by a red RPG gunner as I ford And here comes the ICM. Well-played Red. After this, my leftover callsign killed some enemy infantry and some friendly in the confusion, before joining in the push for the final objective, assaulting, with Connaugh's tanks, a strongpoint of dug in enemy armour and IFVs as Mirzayev's helos guided us in. My ASLAV was disabled by some friendly fire and at that point I had to bail... Thanks once again - a great experience and a pleasure to play with others from around the world. smith PS - final image of some of the graphical hijinks i was experiencing...
  9. Tactical FPS

    Been watching Hell Let Loose and it definitely was a victim of bad timing with Post Scriptum as another (potentially more interesting because of Market:Garden setting with Brit troops) WW2 FPS with a clever strategy to raise its profile.
  10. App to help with vehicle recognition in Steel Beasts

    Hey, that's excellent!
  11. Hey Mark - got the test results back, negative on pertussis thankfully. Yes, it's an old vaccination thing, but its not lifetime effective. People in their 40s and above can catch it and need to get their vaccination updated, especially if you have grandkids or around newborns.
  12. Sorry, crook - might have pertussis...
  13. Hi Mark - sick tonight. Sorry for delay, was hoping to be better
  14. Most likely I will be there - have a work phone hookup to 6pm Sydney time, so may be a trifle late on...
