  1. Today
  2. 1. No. 2. 98% "no" to that too. The earlier graphic Ssnake posted only had 2 MBTs on it and I'm pretty sure they wouldn't use one of those for a retro vehicle:
  3. Just 2 questions..Will I have to requalify at the range?? And will we get the M-48A3??
  4. Note: New time as Australia has come off Daylight Saving time and the country is back to just three time zones again. By now most readers will already know who BG ANZAC is, so I'll put the information relevant to this week in first, then background, etc. If you are new to the Forum, feel free to read the entire post. IMPORTANT: As a serving Officer, I am not allowed to make "public comment" about topics without clearance. This is why my signature block says what it says to cover written comment. Recorded audio on YouTube = "Public Comment", especially if I were to express a personal opinion (without knowing someone was recording). In addition recording people's voices in Australia is illegal without their permission or a Warrant. If you want to record a session, ASK! We maybe about fit you in (I maybe able to play the OPFOR, etc.). If you don't ask: a. Expect me to ask you to remove the YouTube (or other media). b. Don't be too surprised if you aren't welcomed back. BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front): Your Local time: Click on this link for the Local time in your part of the world Count down: Time remaining until Meeting start Mission will start promptly at 0900 GMT. If you want a pre game "chat" then by all means come on line at say 0830 GMT, but so that the Kiwi's aren't after Midnight, the Mission will commence promptly at 0900 GMT. Agenda: Based on the recent sustained good attendance, we are embarking on a more structured approach (only sustainable if the attendance is maintained). Planned Agenda: 1st Thursday (this coming meeting): Teach / Discuss a topic (Attack, Defence, Convoy Escort, Reserve Demolition, OPs, ...) using a scenario / map as the basis for discussion. As to what we cover, that will be will be determined by the response to the related email "newsletter" for this Thursday sent to regular attendees. 2nd Thursday: First volunteer develops a plan for the tactical problem and we see how they go. There will be a brief debrief at the end looking at strengths / weaknesses of their solution, which the person COing the next week is free to incorporate into their solution. 3rd Thursday: We play the same scenario with a different CO (each able to improve / adjust their plan based on their predecessor). 4th Thursday: I, or perhaps Shaun, give you a possible way to do it - No point in us going first. 5th Thursday (if there is one in a given month): Q & A - You need to supply the questions or a "player's choice" determined by responses here / to email. As always, visitors (apart from one individual) / first timers / spectators are welcome. Current Standard: 4.023 Please use the new Calendar RSVP function or post here to facilitate planning. Background: Who is BG ANZAC? https://www.bganzac.org Described here: http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbforums/showthread.php?t=21753 A couple of examples of the BattleGroup at work: Multi Player session: Training session: Timings: Thursday evenings, Australian East Coast time. Next meeting: 0900 GMT on Thursday, June 20th. 1000 in London 1700 in Perth 1830 in Darwin 1830 in Adelaide 1900 in Brisbane 1900 in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra 2100 in Auckland In game chat / Communications: You'll need access to "Teamspeak" to communicate with us. The Teamspeak software is available here: Download Teamspeak client software How to connect and use it is detailed here: Steel Beasts Wiki Entry - Starter Pack Remote Access / Screen Sharing / Whiteboard Sessions: We continue the use of TeamViewer so people without the Steel Beasts software can connect and see and hear what we see and hear (looking over our shoulder if you like). Team Viewer available here This maybe a suitable vehicle for people to see what the software is all about (you can even use it on a Mac), without having to invest in even a short time limited copy. Anyway we'll see how it goes. So if you are interested, visit our web site https://www.bganzac.org and sign up.
  5. Or we just wait a while and they'll all be gone - in line with the MoD's cost saving activities, then no need to model it at all.
  6. Just be careful though as some resources overlap / are shared. e.g. a scenario from say 2.654 that used a given map that is then replaced / upgrade in 4.1x may no longer work as its looking for the earlier map that was likely overwritten in the later installation. Similarly a Tutorial mission that has been upgraded will likely now no longer run in an earlier version. Caveat Emptor / YMMV.
  7. Yesterday
  8. oooof!!! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7143509/Battle-tank-pulverizes-BMW-traveling-speed-German-army-challenge.html
  9. Oooooooooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
  10. Thanks for support Gibsonm! So I will keep all the versions here The more tanks the better
  11. That's fine. I just wanted to make sure you'd seen it. I would have hated it if you'd "missed out" just because you hadn't seen a post.
  12. Spot on! When someone tries to sell you a Marder gunners set as a Leopadr1's...it gets hard to trust them 😉
  13. Gibson, I noticed your offer for sure, and I thank you for it. I nevertheless reject it, and please - do not take it personally, it is not about you perosnally at all. Its just that I tick a bit oldfashioned, maybe. You and me do not know each other, we never even traded a single word in the past 13 years, your offer should not even be needed in any transaction between a company and its customers since them both should be able to deal directly with each other, and finally you would have done me a favour which I cannot give back on equal terms, and as I said: I do not like to owe to others or be owed to by others. There is a company, there is a possible customer, they either agree on a deal or not, and thats it. But as I see it, its is just the two of them. If more is needed, then the terms and coidntions are such that I do not deal. Thanks again, and do not take it personally. And now for the third time: I'm out here. Thank you.
  14. in other words, you are obligated to keep the credit line open for one year under the terms? you can't cancel your account? if that so, it may also be related to the cultural attitude. if credit cards are not mainstream in germany, that very resistance is why credit card companies are operating the way they are- it wouldn't be profitable if only a few people have them, so they naturally find ways to milk the few consumers they have. if and when that broad attitude shifts, you'll see that turn around, they will be forced to abandon those kinds of practices. in the us, since credit cards are nearly inseparable from every day life, credit card companies can't get away with that. they have to compete to offer better terms. in all cases however, it is a profit motive for them- playing the numbers game to maximize the margin. so in the us, the strategy is to offer everyone a credit card without those kinds of burdens placed on the consumer, and they will simply make money off of determinstic human behaviors that predictably, as their data shows, many of those consumers will struggle with their payments or otherwise get lazy about them. in germany the formula is different because fewer people have them and the cultural resistance to them- so the fewer that do have them carry the greater burden to fund the industry. i predict it will evolve to be more like the us model if that changes though.
  15. If you lived in, say... brazil, that would be the case. Since international credit cards are much harder to get, whilst domestic ones are easier. And no, we don't get inundated with letters from credit cards offering international credit cards. Oh, and you should be absolutely careful in even "forgetting" to pay for a month, since about last year, the interest rate was around 700%. It varies between 200% to 600% normally...
  16. A final last ditch offer (since you haven't responded to the two previous attempts):
  17. Exactly. No hard feelings, Ssnake. Good luck for your business in the future.
  18. Colossus, I nowhere indicated that I have a problem with paying for a product. Implying that I did, I could take a bit queer. I am quite capitalistic in that regard. I neither like to receive nor to provide free rides, and I always pay back what I owe - in good and in bad. In fact I said that I would even accept to pay much more for SBP. Things are worth - in prices - what somebody else is willing to give you for it. And I clearly said that it is worth to me more than they ask for. Dont know where you get it that I want a free license from eSim. I just refuse a product if workarounds for it already start with the buying transaction itself - in a shop I then would turn on my heels and walk out, you see. Its just the start, but already no good start. Lets leave it to this.
  19. Well, if the annual credit card fee is 35.- EUR (not uncommon in Germany) and you use it for but a single purchase - and be it SB Pro PE 4.1 - that's entirely unreasonable in relation to the value of the one purchase. Owning a credit card only makes sense if you use it with some regularity.

    Much better! Yeah these guys play Ground Branch, I see them on the GB Discord channel, and have ramdomly played a match or two with... Red
  21. I agree. Either one or the other - but this is an older version of the mod. It looks like in the latest versions he did away with the complicated sights and just used a first person weapon with an easier reticule.

    I remeber this mission, I think it was toward the end. Do remember it was a tuff one. Nice, but I could do without the gun movement. It looks awkward like that. I think with just the sights it would be better, or no sights, but that´s just me.
  23. this is the red herring you bring up- what is the price of red herring these days? mmm good red herring moving at discount rates i hear. i repeatedly said that it's not about altruism and to think otherwise is naive. is ssnake going to sell you steel beasts or is he going to gift it to you? if you take a girl out on a date, is that not inherently 'paying for it'? i know that doesn't sound romantic to think of dating as a transaction, that's exactly why we sell it as something different to make it sound better than that. virtually every kind of relationship in life is a transaction, that is the way living things are from the exchange of dna to propagate the species is that way, the relationship between you and your employer and between your friends and you- you give something to get something, so if you think that i have made the case somewhere that it isn't like that with credit cards, i'm way ahead of you, since i take it further to say life itself is that way in this universe. so here is my point- fight it on principle if you want, but i'm saying that you don't have to wear yourself out on that with the purchase of steel beasts. it's not that bad to use a credit card for a rare purchase now and then, close out the credit card when you are through with it if your conscience is telling you something. the credit card companies want your business, and that business works on the general strategy that enough consumers tend to pay off only the minimum monthly balance they owe on their bill, which means very slowly paying them off, which means they aren't staying on top of it- the interests payments start to accrue and they aren't actually paying off the principal, they are just staving off the interest owed each month, the consumers stay in the cycle of debt and the credit card companies are enriched by that behavior. for your own part as i said you can get around that just by paying off your cards quickly before that happens- so complaining about interest rates being prohibitive, well i'm telling you how to get around that- don't behave that way which does that, pay them off quickly, and it certainly wouldn't be an issue for a rare purchase of steel beasts. on the other hand if you also throw in some narrative based on larger scheme about that they are in business to make money off of us all, yes of course- show me where i said that wasn't the case, that really is besides the point, because if you understand that is how everything works, then this is not exclusive to credit cards. you're not going to give esim your money for nothing, they're not going to give you a license to use steel beasts for nothing, so guess what- that is the universe itself, where do you draw the line?
  24. Ghost Recon 1 Modification CENTCOM Violence of Action Bear in mind, this game was released in 2001 and it was so good that people are still modding it and adding more content.
