  1. I like to see my loader feed the gun and not throw casings out of the hatch, that's why spent casing bins were invented........JK'ing Maybe a action when the :Reload" command in activated, so we can see the loader working (throwing out casings) , and not making coffee.......boiling vessel?.....
  2. AFV's with manual traverse are I would say are the best the sim can do without having such equipment on your desktop (Dark). Is it perfect, no, is it a pain in the ass, sure. Having served in such AFV;s we found many tricks to make this system of traverse work, and without dare I say without issues. Crews found that having their AFV in the proper bearing towards the target, through proper driver commands. Directing the driver to point the gun also works. Only with a hand crank device will this get any better for the operator of such manual traverse. Maybe a steering wheel would work? I don't have a issue with them in the sim, and a great deal of TGIF missions use them with players openly taking such AFV's to command. Trust me, as a operator/instr of the Scorpion turret with power traverse system I feel your pain, but I like many adapt and over come such issues, the benefits out weight any traverse issues of these AFV's. Just my 2 cents, after taxes......:)
  3. thanks, veh repair team sent to fix.....stand-by.....
  4. You should not, to be safe copy them to a folder elsewhere till you confirm the install is complete....as a rule backup everything you need , just to be safe.:) safety first, not really...coffee first, then safety")
  5. You may want to create a ref for your fire mission, a box, a rep point, AB-xxx /with time so you can keep track of where missions are located. When in large arty missions, one can loose track pretty easily if a method of the fire missions locations are not referenced some how. Placing box/ref off map, then drag to loc is when called is one such method to save time during the hectic mission time.
  6. https://www.armyrecognition.com/defense_news_december_2020_global_security_army_industry/canadian_army_unveils_its_new_8x8_armoured_combat_support_vehicle.html The Canadian Armoured Combat Support Vehicle (ACSV) are based on the LAV 6.0 platform and will integrate with and support the existing LAV 6.0 platform currently in use by the CAF. This will provide a number of advantages including reduced training and sustainment costs, as well as the availability of common spare parts to fix vehicles quickly during operations. General Dynamics Land Systems – Canada and Kongsberg have signed a contract for delivery of the Protector Remote Weapon Stations (RWS) to the Canadian Army valued 500 MNOK. The PROTECTOR RWS will be integrated on Canada’s fleet of Armored Combat Support Vehicles. The LAV 6.0 (LAV III Upgrade Project UP) will allow for significant improvements in survivability, mobility and lethality. Survivability enhancements include switching to a Double-V Hull offering inherent and weight efficient protection from mine and IED threats as well as energy-attenuating seats at all crew locations. A more powerful 450hp engine is included as well as upgrades to the drivetrain and suspension. Turret sights will be upgraded to extend their range and gun control electronics are being improved to reduce crew workload. The fully upgraded vehicle weighs 55,000lbs (25,000kg) or better than the original high-mobility 38,000lb APC vehicle that the upgrade is based on.

    I can meet you on TS if you like to talk you through this map issue. Im from NB, so depending on the time zone, we can make this work. And....Welcome aboard!
  10. Part 2 , The new ground effects are a welcome development to the Sim. To players trying to spot their movement, it has given the observation of helo's near the ground, either landing, or moving at ground level a new tool. No more flying around troops for a drop off without some terrain masking to be not spotted by the enemy...possible game changer. https://youtu.be/4za2k1hAsIw
  11. My pleasure, final is coming along well and will be uploaded soon. Exciting times with this update on the SB battlefield....:)
  12. Yes one could fire below the casings...except in the rare times , those casing held a projectile now moving at a rather high speed towards you. In this case, it's most likely your last view
  13. Well the just went through a rapid temp change to higher temperatures , just seconds ago, seems reasonable they be a bit hot. I still have the marks on my fingers from cleaning the empty shell casing bin right below the breach....:)...a bit too soon.
  14. Yes I hope all my friends south of me have a great weekend with loved ones.
  15. 1st MBT I drove..:)...many years ago ...
