  1. Good AI video, but I find it interesting that I must 'prove I am human' to look at their web page. Specially as they charge for the use of the tool.
  2. I'm curious about the 3 man crew capsule. Where is located? How easily can they exit the vehicle?
  3. Thank you. But no that is not needed. I test multiple things in a scenario at the same time; a little tweak here, a little tweak there. I find that a way point right before the bridge, one at the start of the bridge and the same at the other end usually works.
  4. I must admit I use time acceleration all the time. Sometimes I get stubborn and work on it till the the bridge behaves, sometimes I slowdown the time acceleration for the bridge crossing I am testing. But it can mean a lot of testing and retesting, till it behaves.
  5. That was not my intent. For I have no use for this hardware. I was just wondering, as Razor requires a connection to it's server before their software will run correctly on your PC. And if their server is not up your out of luck till next time you boot-up or reboot and it took me sometime to get a straight answer from them. I hope Logitech does not behave in this manner.
  6. Does this mean that Logitech now requires a connection to their website as Razer does?
  7. There has been an interesting documentary about WWII and the arctic on TV here recently. "Untold Arctic Wars". There was a mine in the very top of Finland that everyone wanted the ore from. At least that's how it started. Spoiler: Churchill was not very successful again.
  8. Yes, I am just pointing out that Sendowl is legitimately taged as spam by spam filters. I nearly did not retrieve the e mail from my spam folder. It's a business decision; but expect some to not be able to spot your e mail, when the e mail is from noreply@sendowl.com
  9. I tend to disagree, look at https://www.sendowl.com , https://www.sendowl.com/features and www.sendowl.com/pricing. It definitely looks like a marketing site which would be why the spam filter caught it.
  10. My spam filter nabbed it! And it does look iffy to me. It does not point to esim, it points to sendowl, which my spam filter definitely does not like. Is send owl an advertising site, that would explain the my spam blocker stopping it?
  11. Oh dear, HESH is High Explosive Squash Head! But HE does not squash against the armour and can be fired from a smooth bore. I don't know where you get the idea of ''reflected energy''; reflected off what? Dissipated or absorbed by the armour would be more to the point. I think you need to stop listening to ''people on the internet'', and do some research into the basics, read a book or two; anything by Ian Hogg, for example, would be good. Then apply some logic. Also think about this; you got an answer from Ssnake and he makes a living from selling this software to national armies. Surely the model he uses would be valid enough for their training.
  12. If I remember correctly HESH works by squashing against the outer armour and exploding, causing the inner surface of the armour to shatter and a send splinters through the turret or hull, damaging equipment and killing personnel (the armour is not actually penetrated). And it does not work from smooth bore guns, it needs the warhead to spin. It's effectively obsolete. If I'm reading the pics correctly, the explosive shell struck the ground beside the tank throwing chunks of unspecified material at the tank at high velocity.
  13. I find video the hardest medium to learn from. Reading is much easier for me, I prefer a good manual.
  14. If I remember correctly Microsoft was mentioned in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
  15. But they told us Win 10 was forever! Only constantly updated. So how can we trust Microsoft?
  16. Z Force is an unfortunate phrase for me; last time I was in Vic Barracks (which was a long time ago) there was still a Z Force HQ. Refers to a unit that under took special operations in WWII.
  17. 'The first nine ‘Terminator’ tank support fighting vehicles will enter service with armored units of the Russian Central Military District’s 90th Guards Tank Division stationed in the Sverdlovsk and Chelyabinsk Regions from December 1 after successful trials.' https://militaryleak.com/2021/11/09/first-terminator-tank-support-fighting-vehicles-to-enter-service-with-russian-central-military-districts-tank-division/
  18. I'm using a ROG Strix XG43VQ, a curved ultra-wide 43-inch gaming monitor, 120Hz. Resolution is 3840 x 1200. And I love it! Have had no trouble; but I do run SB Pro in window mode, just short of full width and height.
  19. I'm guessing Norse mythology: 'Borghild was the first wife of Sigmund. She bore him two sons, Hamund and Helgi.'is not what he's talking about.
  20. It seems the BMPT-72 Terminator 2 is now in production: https://www.armyrecognition.com/defense_news_july_2021_global_security_army_industry/uralvagonzavod_starts_the_supply_of_serial_production_of_bmpt-72_terminator_2_fire_support_vehicle.html
  21. I personally don't need 'playable' not really interested in the crew positions; having said that I would like all Israeli vehicles modeled. 'I don't think we even know how much they tricked out their M-60s and Shermans even'. I remember back in the late 90s and early 2000s, someone, I think he may still a web site, said he had access to the all the modification records for the M60s. He made up names for all different 'varieties' of M60s. But later I came across references to their servicing procedures; it appears that the reason there were so many different looking M60s was that, when in for servicing the M60 and M48 was to be updated to whatever the current standard was and if they did not have all the parts available they fitted what they had in stock.
  22. Version 1.0.0


    Just a bit of shoot'n'up fun. At Least two Sleezarian Coys, moving East from Sodom to Gomorrah route unknown. Probable enemy equipment includes BTR B-10s and BMP3s. Bandicoot detachment: 1st Pl Mechanized infantry, 2nd Pl Tank and 3rd Pl recce c) Attachments and detachments: Self propelled mortar Pl One battery of artillery is available. You also have some air support. Objectives: Locate and destroy all Sleezarians moving through your patrol area bounded by 850110 and 910070.
  23. Version 1.0.0


    You are in command of 3rd Pl Mechanized infantry push west and secure and hold Dutons Field (at approx 725558). Also block enemy access to the bridge (at approx 741555). Hold for as long as possible, at least until the 2 Coy chooks arrive. 2 Coy has sent some infantry as an advanced party. The Sleezarian units are scripted quite randomly, both in their type and number of units. It has taken me quite some time to 'bálance' this; sometimes you get lots thrown at you and sometimes you don't, but just one T90 can ruin your day. Don't forget to feret out any Sleezarian irregulars, to win there must be no opposition elements at Dutons Field and none must have crossed the bridge! Optionally take control of: AT Pl (trigger (1) AT Pl) AA Pl (trigger (2) AA Pl) 1st Pl (trigger (3) 1st Pl) 2nd Pl (trigger (4) 2nd Pl)
