  1. Tank Biathlon

    Once upon a time the 29th Armored Regiment (SB VU) ran a competition that was vaguely similar. I'll see if I can dig out the old scenarios; as I recall they had some relevance to this notion. Shot
  2. Tanker movie coming up - Thunder Run

    Medal of Honor did a pretty good job of conveying the limits of space and freedom inside a tank, AIR. True the in-turret stuff was maybe a couple of minutes; true also that you'd want a lot more than that for a crews'-eye view of the issue. Still... Shot
  3. Tank Biathlon

    OK, sorry about that, I didn't look at the other fora before posting in this one. Still think it's a cool idea, though. Shot
  4. Tank Biathlon

    http://rt.com/news/first-tank-biathlon-competition-russia-346/ You've probably seen this elsewhere; I thought it would be cool if the competition could be recreated in SB and we have our own little Tank Biathlon. Shot
  5. Fulda Gap revisited

    Tony, for my money I would love to see a FG map. Lotsa campaign possibilities. P.S. Nihil illegetimi carborundum; or something like that. P.P.S. I still need a Sevastapol map for Sons of Lenin. Shot
  6. Fulda Gap revisited

    Dark is a singular force behind many of the improvements you see (and will see) behind SB. Assigning his remarks to a category best-left to actual trolls is impolite, and inaccurate. Troll elsewhere. Shot
  7. "Carry over"

    I'm willing to help out with this if there's still room and if you're interested in having me aboard. Shot
  8. I'm up for playing Red, if there's still room. And if we're playing on a night I can make it. Shot
  9. He's Back

    Da Hedgehogski. Expect new campaign idea before too very long. Will wish for you to participate. Shotski
  10. He's Back

    Just downloaded and installed -.640, seems to run fine. That's the good news. The bad news, my gunnery S.U.C.K.S., after more than two years absent from the turret. I know how to fix that, though. Trigger time, and lots of it. Hope to see you all in-game sometime sooner, rather than later. Shot
  11. Preparing to de-lurk

    For the sake of propriety I'd say that if we were to reconstitute the old VU with the old membership (and add some new faces) then we should necessarily call it something else. Just seems proper. All about lambic. And no, it's not a dance. Speaking of beer, while you're doing the lambada with the good doctor please do give my best to him and his wife. Also interrogate him about where a good chimay might be found. You won't be sorry. Too bad I won't be there myself. In absentia I promise to send a picture of myself, wearing a thong. You asked for it. Shot
  12. Preparing to de-lurk

    I was trying be concise. You'll note that I didn't mention anyone else from the 29th either. Besides, you're more like a fine, stone-ground mustard. Or a lambic. Shot
  13. Preparing to de-lurk

    Shot is still alive and still looking forward to brawling with his old friends Gary, Dark, 12A, and not-least Rat. And a host of others. That means you, Hell-Hound. Shot remembers that Rat taught him to 'PC Tango', as well. Shot is working a variety of issues at the moment, but promised to return to the game sooner rather than later. New CM stick, and the scratch for the update. Shot will return, however. Especially if his friends are once more in the fight. Rat, if HH can't make it, you and Gary and I should either join Gary's VU, or form our own (and ally ourselves with Gary). Anyway, Shot is coming back. And promises not to speak of himself in the third person for too much longer. Shot
  14. Interesting reading

    Looks like the link has lots of good stuff. Thanks Homer. Shot
