  1. T55 commanders sight. TKN-1

    Sorry Ssnake, i got home and did a little more research.. The sight modeled in SB is the TPKU-1 and it looks pretty good,(three cheers for the modelers!) however in reality it has no night channel itself so for night-ops it is switched out for the monocular TKN-1. Obviously this physical swap out of sights is not modeled in SB, nor would i expect it to be. The wiki uses both terms, This is what confused me and i was looking for clarification of what sight was actually fitted to a T-55 and what it looked like after pondering buying a piece of possibly useless Tank tat on fleabay. I guess this is the minefield of looking for info on old Warsaw Pact gear.
  2. T55 commanders sight. TKN-1

    Ah yes the old figure 8, no this is more about the construction of the sight in RL and it's 3d representation in the T55s interior model in SB
  3. T55 commanders sight. TKN-1

    As modelled in SB, the TKN-1 has two eye pieces, when looking at examples online they only seem to have one, is this a different sight or an error in the SB T55 interior model?

    Anything going down this Thursday (22nd)?
  5. Beasts on the Prowl

    Hi Mark, I've been out of the SB loop so long I didn't know who was still around to be honest. Ben
  6. Beasts on the Prowl

    Hi, Does anyone have a link or access to the original SB credits music? Pretty sure it was called Beasts on the Prowl by Volcano and may have appeared on early versions of SB ProPE but i might be wrong

    I was wondering, as someone who can suffer from moderate motion sickness, how AFV crewmen or passengers deal with motion sickness. Is it something that would prevent you serving in certain vehicles or can it be trained out of you or just controlled with meds?
  10. Any experts on the T34 (early models)?

    Thanks, Jartsev. I had a feeling it was both but had been unable to get any confirmation.
  11. Just a quick one for those who know their WWII vehicles, specifically the 76mm equipped early T34's The Commander/Gunner had a rotatable periscope and a fixed telescopic sight attached to the gun barrel. Each one had basic range and lead markings (with an adjustable range line i believe). My question is; which of these sighting systems did the commander/gunner use for engaging with the main gun and coax?
  12. A little news from Hoggy

    So around the end of September last year some of you will have noticed I dropped off the face of the earth and apart from some brief comms with other members of UKA I disappeared. Well around that time I and my partner Rebecca were expecting the birth of our first child. Sebastian J H Morton was born on the 4th of Oct but things were not perfect. He was born with transposition of the great arteries and needed open heart surgery at 9 days old. All went well and apart from some medication and high calorie food (due to post op weight loss) he is now a happy and healthy 4.5 month old. obviously he will always been under specialist care but things are looking good. As you can imagine all this on top of being a first time parent took its toll and SB was the least of my concerns. It may still be some time before I am back playing but I will be popping in here from time to time to see what you lot are up to. Thanks to all those who did contact me over that time, alas things were hectic and my memory is awful so if i haven't thanked you directly it is no snub I just had a lot going on at the time. Ben P.S. Myself Becky and Seb are planning a trip to tankfest this year, so in the years to come do not be surprised if another tank mad Morton with better gunnery skills than I starts racking up kills in a CR2!
  13. Some Basic Q's About Map Building...

    Hi Sims_guy. There is a guy by the name of Dark Angel around here somewhere. He has quite a rep for map construction and helping others out with the same. If you talk to him nicely he may be able to help you out depending on his RL workload.
