  1. I use a mouse and Joystick for all positions except the gunner controls. This device has ,the general hand placement, and angle to most tank FCS. The device is rigged for laze and fire straight from box. Has 15 inputs, so room to grow. That's where I am at now, testing. As for the $$, well my flying setup cost more, as well as other hobbies...(must keep telling myself this)...:) and cost less than a sheet of plywood...
  2. I recently this year, have bought this device....I'm very happy with the performance, and price. https://www.amazon.com/Thunderstick-GRS-Flight-Yoke/dp/B08L7TVCM2

  4. Have you looked at the AAR after mission? In the replay you will find out where you are going wrong with you plan, and take steps to correct this action. This Sim is rather complex as with modern armoured warfare. Thus the years training we do in real life to complete missions. Hang in there. If you want I can host a session and go over a few tips and see what you are doing wrong if anything. I'm sure others can help also online. Online sessions are where most players see how the Sim works, and the added value of players there to assist you with qu
  5. What unit, tank, Mech, Inf, Arty? Unit TO&E has changed. as I'm sure your aware of due to the recent deployments to their border and the lessons learned. Some elements, and structure has remained, others have changed to meet their operational needs Are you looking for reg units, volunteers, private? Are you looking for the TO&E of a ptl? Coy?, and in what function (TANK/INF/MECH. ARTY)......? Normally one would ask at the platoon level of a arm of a army....ie: ptl of a tank unit, then scale this up to Coy level and so on. Wi

  7. Would you share some documentation/ information on this "NATO Standard Sight". In my many years using Nato sights, I have never seen , or heard of this nomenclature regarding such equipment. Nor, can I find anything on the web. I believe (correct, or not) this is a myth, as NATO had many MBTS with different sights offered. Thanks in advance. Disclaimer: Don't read into to this question for some hidden meaning..:)
  8. What is thought to be the last surviving Centurion tank from the Korean War made it to B.C. from NS in time for Remembrance Day 2019
  9. The Centurion has a similar Bino setup, if I'm reading this correct.
  10. On most turrets there are aiming points. Being the edge of a piece of equipment or actual aiming marks that the Cmdr can use. For the CRV's it was the right side of the Cmdr's sight hood. I am told that the M1A2 the front of the Cmdr is really hard to see over, and around. Making the use of bino's forward useless. Others can confirm this.
  11. This "skill" was lost I think when AFV started to obtain the "hunter killer" system (hardware/software). CRV turrets , and the crews that operated them trained on commander/gunner target identification. It went for our training, Cmdr see's Trg, calls , Gnr, tank 2000m, "traverse" right/left - as the turret is moving (fast), Cmdr calls Gnr "slow", and Gnr slows the turret. Near Trg Cmdr calls "Steady", telling the Gnr that the Trg is coming into his view. Gnr see's Trg, calls "Target", Cmdr call Fire order. The Cmdr has power tr
