  1. I understand what you are saying about hitting trees at high speed but I have pushed over several trees while in the service. I can understand a tree stoping a tank or even if your unbuttoned killing a TC or loader but the driver I can not understand. Once again Im not saying full speed into a tree but I have bumped into a tree at very low speed and killed my driver. I fear trees more than I do a tank shell. I was just wondering if there was a better way around it than to dodge every tree while trying to fight. And I thought this was the wish list.
  2. I know but when you are getting arty you need to go and then you get away from arty just in time to hit the tree and kill a driver. I can understand nocking out a radio or something but killing crewmembers little frustrating.
  3. I wish not to be killed by trees anymore. Is there something that can be done about that?:
  4. Have a new amd 6970 video card running around 62 fps and i can see troops :debile2:
  5. Thanks for trying to help. You guys are asking for the scenario in which this is happening. It is every mission I play. I am rebuilding my pc time now. So after I get it back together I will try to give more information on different scenarios and will try a few different things. But once again thanks for all the suggestions on what could be the problem.
  6. I can let the tank become fully loaded resupply from a truck and it still will not scan in f8 as soon as i go to any of the commanders position it begans to scan. As soon as i jump to f8 it stops instant. Not to sound smart but if the vehicle starts moving the loading procedure stops if Im correct so it should not have anything to do with it. But Im not sure. But its pretty weird. One thing i have noticed is when the missions begin tank scans fine but if i jump to the gunners seat and out for some reason from that point on it will not scan on its own.
  7. I can put an M1A1 on a map with nothing else there and have it fully loaded and it will still do the same thing. Have reset all my controls to default and still has the same problem. Have no clue what it is.:eek2:
  8. I didnt either until recent but its not reloading or in trees. I can be on the main road gun will stay in one place even if i sit and do 360s. If I go to commanders position out of hatch scans like normal but as soon as i jump to external it stops.
  9. Anytime I go to external view on the abrams my gunner will not scan. Have to be danger close for tc to designate before he will engage. I tried it on other tanks and gunner scans and shoots fine just wondering if I have turned something off or has anyone heard of this?:confused:
  10. I stand corrected I just watched a video of a chally tank commander explaining that there sabot round was only effictive out to 2k but hesh was out to 8k. So according to this I am wrong. But the video did show alot of the inside of the tank. Nice video
  11. I may be from West Virginia but I served on active duty with 13 months in Iraq as a tank gunner. I have explained that we were told of the Challys capabilities so if we were near them we knew what to expect. I may be wrong but all Im saying is that I believe that the tank could take on and defeat T-80s maybe not M1s or leos. I dont mean to sound rude or ungrateful for the research that has been done but from what i have been taught the tank is better than shown. And by the way I will bet the West Virginia National Guard has spent more time in combat than most people on this forum. Have a nice day.
  12. And what experience do you have 12Alfa just wondering:confused:
  13. Just my opinion the people in the video are so called experts and they rate the challys fire power off the charts. So why on this sim does a leo as1 have better ammo than the newest british ammo.:confused:
