  1. Bundeswehr Recce

    Can anyone lead me in the right direction to read up on German recon battalion tactics and really anything out there on this organization? Let's say, anything mid-60's through current, but 80's would be most pertinent. Was reading an old higher-level ORBAT and noted this interesting composition: "11th Recon Battalion: 34 Leopard 1, 10 Luchs, 18 Fuchs (9 with ground radar)" Lots of tanks there for recon so, piqued my curiosity as to how they would have (still would?) operate. Lots of fighting serials in general for a battalion. I guess I'm looking for more of a "cold war" explanation of how they would have operated.
  2. Skin Request (dejawolf...)

    Dejawolf, that's awesome that you posted some of the BLANK skins here for everyone. You are saving people a truck-load of time. would you please post the Leopard 2A4 BLANK skin? Please don't call me an ingrate! Because I am grateful. You are doing a great job on the models and skins chief.

Olive Drab is a dirtier, worn basic green as seen in some photos of former Warsaw Pact countries. Pack 2: Classic tri-tan and tri-gray. Pack 3 is basic dark green (a bit darker than Dejawolf's) with my details added and parts reworked. This set includes 7 different decal sets. Here are two examples: continued below...
  9. Fuel Leak

    Repairable? I recieved a repairing flash in green at a point, but it never got fixed. I wasn't near a cargo when it started flashing repair. I moved closer to a repair truck to reload and repair. The vehicle reloaded, but never completed the repair. Also, there was never a time indicator as to when the repair would be done (even when it was flashing in green repair). I spent about half an hour tryihng to get this vehicle repaired. (Thank goodness Valley of the Jackel allows enough time for these things... lol.) Does anyone know how to repair fuel leaks? Are they repairable?
  10. Leopard 2A4 Cold War Pack v1.0

    yes, it can: greevile has made some of the funniest videos with SB/PE i've seen. it's almost sinful.
  21. Leopard 2A5DK Night Cockpit for 2.5+

    I was never in tanks, but we had lights for the compartment of our SPLL (http://www.armyvehicles.dk/images/m270a1_1.jpg). There were three settings: white, blue and red. probably the same with many vehicles. if no NODs, i liked driving with blue or nothing. actually i hated NODs. can anyone with Leo experience weigh in? Looks pretty damn good from the screen shots. I'll have to download it and check it out.
  22. Top Tank Platoon 2010 (TOURNAMENT)!

  23. 2.5xx Bradley, kudos Deja and Volcano

    My gosh deja! the model and skin for the new Bradley is incredible. Really, i cannot think of anything to be done to it! the tracks now have space where it belongs and are more narrow. the ATGM launcher is hollow. The details to the outer surfaces are beautiful. i've only played with it twice since the new release. i am sure i will see more new details as i continue to use it. in fact, i need to get back to the mission i'm playing :biggrin:. i just had to duck out and post this. oh and not to mention the new engine sounds...kudos to you too volcano! sounds great, and the transition to a stop is spot on.
