We put a gunner and a TC into them and was told that in 2018 a new TC would emerge as in 2 TCs :D

 

By the way the Tank on the banner is Abaddons

Can you grow Loader's and Drivers in the same patch as TC and Gunner's?

no they have to be kept seperate... otherwise they transfer some bad TC genes over which will harm them later on in life..

They seem to grow in batches. So one could probably grow more, but you would need a Lot of Monster and cigarettes...

Hangover, schmangover

 

If you drink my Rum, you dont get a hangover. Only the TC and Gunner dared .... And they had been on a binge the night before, and my Rum doth breathed life into to them again.

Pax Vobiscum.

If It was not for the Modern Leo, and CV90, I would think this was a cold war era exercise.  I like the tanks ripping past old folks, kids, and babies in strollers a few feet away.  Live fire within a stones throw from the crowd.  I can't imagine something like this going on here in the U.S.A.  It would be the best 4th of July ever IMO.
