  1. after seeing your last post both here and on discord my only comment is "what a burden " ūüėč MD
  2. A2 I can take A21 if Irish or BB don't want to as i am not going to work this sunday MD
  3. D24 or D23 And you guys know that the fourth vehicle in the Danish CV9035 PLT is a M113G4(Its prolly going to be a Piranha 5 soon) which holds the PLT SG for the dismounted the other PLT SG is in one of the CV9035 and somewhere there is a extra TC so that the PLT leader can either do dismounted or Mounted But i know its Kanium standard. MD
  4. Year i cant post there it seems one of the guys asked about the shape of the M41Dk1 and the whole upgrade idea was to get it to look like leopard 1 if it was spotted at all so all the extensions and boxes was made so it looked like a leopard 1 in silhouette. At the same time the Gun got a new israeli round that was said to be able to penetrate the front armour of a T-72 from that time period. They also changed the engine to a diesel from a petrol which gave it a lot more power. It removed some of the stealth as the petrol engine M41 was able to sneak up on you if move in the lowest gear and very slow you couldn't hear it until ift was within 25-50 m , the diesel was a bit louder. from army-guide The overall layout of the M41 vehicle has not been changed but some 70 improvements have been carried out. These include the replacement of the original petrol engine with a more fuel-efficient US Cummins VTA-903T diesel developing 465 hp (similar to that in . the Bradley Fighting Vehicle); installation of four forward-firing grenade dischargers either side of the turret (as already fitted to the Danish Leopard 1); installation of an NBC system in the turret bustle; a fire detection and suppression system; new battery installation; improved internal layout; redesigned stowage rack and bins; a heater; a new DISA 7.62 mm anti-aircraft machine gun mount on the turret roof in place of the 12.7 mm M2 MG; installation of side skirts similar to those on the Leopard 1; new electric gun controls, a thermal night vision system for the gunner with an integrated laser range-finder; a halogen searchlight mounted on the gun mantlet; a night vision periscope for the driver; and night vision goggles for the commander. A scavenger system has been fitted for the 76 mm gun breech and 7.62 mm coaxial machine gun. Prior to the completion of the modernisation programme, the Danish Army had already taken delivery of a new AAl-developed 76 mm APFSDS-T round which has a significant increase in armour penetration characteristics over the existing ammunition. This round is also understood to have been purchased by Taiwan for its M41 light tanks.
  5. It looks like the gas bunsen burner holder fore a 3 or 5 kilo burner but i might be wrong its used to cook your food on if i remember correctly you put the round thingy so its hole is up and down then extend the 4 legs and put the burner 3 or 5 kilo inside the round thing so its stabilized The military ones used to be yellow but that thingy inside the cirkel and with the legs extended it was pretty stable. but i could be wrong MD
  6. D21 please Am i seeing something wrong as i see c units on the pic of the area but D units on the manninglist ? MD
  7. I read on the danish mapping state site that its a EU thing that all member states should have 2m lidar maps available for free download and it certainly is for Denmark i just don't know how to convert that format into SB maps but the map material in the form of 2m lidar maps are freely available it would be real nice if we could just import that and have maps available i know something like buildings should still prolly be made manually they comes in 1 km x 1km grid squares so they need to be put together somehow MD

In-Game Situation Caen (10km North) was captured several days ago (19 JUL 44), during Operation Goodwood, after six weeks of fighting in Normandy. Verri√®res Ridge and the surrounding towns blocks a direct advance by Allied forces to Falaise. In the last 24 hours, a 60-plane bombing raid was conducting in the area, however, heavy anti-aircraft fire rendered the air attack unsuccessful and only 15 of the 60 aircraft released bombs. In the last 12 hours, 6th Brigade attacked south and a company of Les Fusiliers Mont-Royal seized Troteval Farm with support from The Sherbrooke Fusilier Regiment. However, further attempts to move south have been thwarted by defenders of the 1 SS Panzer Corps. B Company from The North Nova Scotia Highlanders are staged near Troteval Farm, prepared to attack to the south. D Company will arrive from Caen in 40 minutes. German forces have a forward disruption zone established just south of the Line of Departure. They have a fortified line of Anti-Tank Guns (RPG-29 proxy), and light reconnaissance vehicles prepared to support with local counter-attacks. Further south, near the villages of Verrieres and Tilly-la-Campagne, the Germans are established in heavily fortified defensive positions (bunkers and minefields) with mechanized forces and tanks (Leopard AS1 proxy) set to reinforce and conduct local counter-attacks if their lines are penetrated. The Germans have ample artillery, and are supported with engineers (protective obstacles), and air defense assets to assist with their layered defense.(edited) II.
