  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 years now. I'm certainly a lot busier now than I was when I started playing as a teenager, but when I get the rust scraped off, I look forward to mixing it up with you guys again. -SCUD
  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. ruck. The next guys, PSG, SL, and TL will have to come to work on Sat.) MP - "Well, you know you can get a ticket for driving too slowly too." Me - "Yes, what is the speed minimum on this road." (I know there isn't one.) MP - "Well, there isn't one, but you can still get a ticket for impeding traffic" (My car was the only vehicle on my side of the road.) Me - "Was there anyone behind me?" MP - "No, but I can still give you a ticket for impeding traffic." (I fucking dare you. You fucking douche bag. Give me a ticket for impeding imaginary traffic.) Me - "Ok....." MP - "Well....just drive like 25 man you'll be good." Me - "Ya, ok, have a nice night." Please note, I like law enforcement officers, and all the ones I have delt with have always been reasonable, but MPs are just faggots. (At least the ones on Ft. Benning. Sorry if you are an MP somewhere else, you are probably a decent guy.)
  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.
  16. LOL Wish we could bet on it.
  17. I'm betting that in 6 days time I'm not going to forget its just an experiment. I think the problem was they were all a bunch of hippy psychology students that couldn't handle the harsh realities of the real world.
  18. Wow, they had to do 10 pushups...how barbaric. And they were stuck in a shitty room for 6 days. I don't know how they survived. :roll:
  19. Dude 5 to 9 round bursts if you want to hit anything....
  20. Wow, he's gonna be kicking himself for that one in a couple years. Other than that, pretty squared the fuck away.
  21. Hehehe. Sounds like he needs some forced hydration to me :-D Grab me some Cera Sport and a couple 2-quarts....
  22. Darn, sorry I didn't give you a heads up man. Oh well, I'm sure our paths will cross again.
  23. Ya, I was looking at some posters of it in Orbson hall where we were staying. It looked like a really nice MOUT site. I don't know why we didn't use it.
  24. Hey guys. I just got back from some training up at Ft. Knox. For an armor base you guys sure have alot of nice MOUT sites. We did force on force at Redwing and Anaconda, FRIES near the Redwing HLZ, PLT livefires at Kennedy range, mortars at Scott MTN, Strykers at Yano, heavy weapons at Heins, demo at Steeles, and CQB at Andrews and Burcham. Any of you guys from that kneck of the woods? Maybe next time I'll be able to link up with you.
  25. No Det Cord is Det Cord. ECT is explosive cutting tape. 550 cord is type 3 nylon cord rated to hold 550 lbs, and it useful for anything that needs to be tied down. Here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/550_cord
