  1. Tonight, and for the first time this decade, I decided fire up Steel Beasts and get back in the proverbial saddle. Sending some virtual DU down range definitely brought back some fond memories and made it pretty obvious I hadn't played this simulation in 5 years lol. I'm not sure why I randomly decided to fire it back up, but I"m glad I did. It's been a long time since I hopped on this forum, and a lot of life has happened in between, but I'm glad there are still some familiar faces around, and Nils is still improving his masterpiece. I can't believe this thing has been around for almost 15 ye
  2. All MPs suck. Yesterday I got pulled over for driving too slow. I'm driving down a street on base where the speed limit is like 25 MPH, and I'm going like 10-15 and pass an MP. He does a U-turn behind me and pulls me over. The conversation goes like this: MP - "Why you driving like 10 MPH on my street 'bro?" (Note how he calls it "my street" because obviously MPs own the base and I'm just priviledged to live and work there.) Me - "Well, my chain of command put out that the next guy to get a speeding ticket on base is going to be crucified." (The previous guy did a 26mi. road march w/45lb. ruc
  3. On a related note, Sabaton has a good song titled "Panzer Battalion" : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeE3Twf6B1I
  4. Here is another couple that will drink to that. LOL, and I'd almost forgotten about that picture.
  5. I remember waiting, and waiting and waiting, and then there was something about toast........then there was SB Pro :-D
  6. Actually, I recently read about an Army project which will fix the problems with the ACU camo. Most people have suggested adopting a different uniform, such as one that will actually blend in with the environment, however the Army has a better plan. They are just going to spray paint everything in Iraq with ACU textured spray paint. It's an ambitious project but the DoD says it can be completed by 2015, and for a mere $26 billion. If reality doesn't match your perception...change reality. And to think people complained about ACUs....
  7. Hey thanks guys. Looking forward to playing on Saturday. Hopefully everything will work out. Now I just need to do some re-training before I embarrass myself....
  8. I'm back! I'm trunk as hell right now, but watch out this weekend. SCUD is back in the game. Love you guys.
  9. In honor of your wise decision, I'm going to add a new line to my signature: Steel Beasts...You know it's more important.
  10. My Dad actually read a review of it at SimHQ in late 2000 (He doesn't play Sim games though, so I don't know why.) He downloaded the demo of it and I played the hell out of it all next year. He got me the full version as a Christmas present in 2001. I was 15 then....now I'm 22. Damn, doesn't seem like that long ago. Of course, I pre-ordered the Pro version ;-)

  12. Nice pics. If you think the C-17 is big though, you should check out a C-5. I remember getting out of our C-17 in Ramstein and seeing one sitting in a hangar. Thing was rediculous.
  13. Reminds me of that tank from Command & Conquer.
  14. More like, gunner, sabot, troops. :-D
  15. Unless your country happens to be in Africa or South America, then it's ok to slaughter people wholesale.
