  1. Iron man suits for the infantry, and yes they do exist. LoL http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-39441825
  2. Great that it all went well in front of the Brass. A good selling point for ITEC.
  3. No problem Gibsonm Grenny please cancel my request. good luck with the event
  4. Can you post the event over on the sim HQ forum please Grenny. For some reason i cant log in over there.
  5. Haven't noticed the bug But remember if the Tank firing is hit or losses its track because of terrain obstructions the missile will miss, Also crew experience can make a big difference to the gunners accuracy.
  6. I tend not to take the wish list to seriously i have asked for stuff i know will never materialise For me its just a bit of fun. but i still think zombies are needed look what they did for Arma. Better still zombie sheep with fifty cals attached. LoL But seriously i wonder if the existence of the wish list plays any part in decision process Esim use when planning additional content in there updates I like to think it does a lot of the new contend i wished for materialised like the playable BMP T-55 M-60 etc Companies tend to plan a couple of years in advance. Esim seem to work in planned increments slowly but surly improving the Sim with an eye to the limitations of the old engine. I know very little about the technical side of how to build a simulation as complex as a armour sim. But i have often wondered should they just scrap the old engine and buy an existing engine and transfer of all there content over No easy task i should imagine. but it would help secure the sims future
  7. Purely hypothetical and not possible currently. probably never But If all the major milsim companies involved SB. DCS. Arma used the same engine and coding could you imagine the possibilities.
  8. You could build the mission in such away that the Tanks come in waves and once a tank is destroyed the unit will vanish from the map Freeing up the map that's how i do it.
  9. If you are trying to replicate WW-2 Tank warfare playable Tanks. I would recommend the leo-1A5 for the panther the Leo-2 for the tiger 1 Disable the thermals ballistic computer use the lowest rated Ammo,. If you want to replicate a tank destroyer use the AMX-13 disable the turret drive, For the allies i would use the AS1 as a sherman E8, the T-55 as the T35/85 you could use the PT-76 as a SU-85. I cant help with your other issue but i agree with Gibsonm you may have to many unit on the map you will need a very high spec machine to run that many units. You have more options if your opfor does not need to be playable.
  10. The UK did something similar it was called the MK7, A vickers turret leo-2 hull and a choice of a British french or German 120mm main gun could be fitted. It was refused by the MOD offered for export but no takers.
  11. Some more prototypes. The T-90MS. black eagle. come to mind The CR-1 fulcan 1/2 The Osorio main battle. AMX-40 etc. Not sure if there's enough information to make even none playable versions But the T-90MS would make for a tough opponent
  12. I was thinking more of the auto cannon. The 40mm on the Ajax and upgraded warrior should give it a lot more punch then the 30 mm on the ulan which will be needed to take on the next gen IFV's like the Puma Should they be modelled in the next big upgrade. The Ajax has a crew of 3 and 4 dismounts the warrior 3/7. the ulan has 3/8 dismounts. The Ulan is about 4/5 tons heavier then the current warrior the Ajax is about 38 tons about six tons heavier the ulan not sure what the upgraded warrior will Be but it has the ability to fit Various armour levels for different operational types.
  13. I was wondering if Esim took the turret of the Ulan and put it on the Warrior hull in game Would it be technically possible to do this I know a lot of the component parts used on the Ulan IFV were used for the warrior improvement program with the exception of the 40mm gun of course It would make for a credible Improved warrior for the next update.?
  14. It was a welcome addition. Really does add something to a mission if you can deploy weapons systems and platforms that were actually used in the period the mission took place Hopefully a BO-105.Gazelle and a lynxs in the next major update.
  15. One of my favourite armour series from back in the late ninety's Twelve eposides showing tank development pre to post war. eposides 12 is interesting showing M1A1 crews Training in simulators I would say there's a few guys on this site spent some time in them. LoL
  16. Try the download section. Theres a few Brit skins for the pizarro which is basically the same as the ulan. I use the ulan skin made by justsomeguy its not exact but it looks great It would be great if some of the talented moders on this site made a UK skin for the Ulan complete with decals Its just a preference thing but I do like all my vehicles to has the same camouflage patten. http://www.steelbeasts.com/files/category/87-pizarro/
  17. I would use the Ulan. General Dynamics played a major role in both designs.
  18. More PLA stuff would be good. A lot of there earlier model T types are direct copies of soviet tanks. They did fit a 105mm gun on the type 85 i think it was. I spoke to a guy in bovington who evaluated one while in military service and reckons it was the dogs bollocks his words not mine. He was a member of the Museum staff so i had no reason to disbelieve him.
  19. More upgraded variants of the T-62 family Experimenting with the upgraded T-55 variants in game has shown me just how more combat effective even an older generation tank can be. The m variant of the T-62 would be a good addition. Also there's some pretty decent upgrades for the BMP family the BMP-1P It has smoke discharges a better ATGM and armour improvements
  20. Just found this Would you have informed the police. LoL http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/791015/Incredible-moment-army-buffs-find-gold-bars-worth-2m-inside-Iraqi-tank-ebay-kuwait
  21. +1
  22. LoL I was thinking a couple of gold bars less messy then homicide. LoL
  23. As a friend of mine used to say (he worked in sales) plant the seed and watch it grow. Not everybody has access to a machine capable of running SB 4. but may do in the future Although i agree with Gibsonm in that if esim still supported the legacy version it would be a distraction form current projects But if a individual like your self wants to take up the mantle kudos my friend and good luck. I have always liked the logo as well.
