  1. Scimitar and Scorpion are two person turrets with bigger guns, radios, stowage and a fair bit of armour (relatively speaking) in the bustles etc. so I wouldn't be surprised that they are heavier than the BRDM / BTR turrets. I'd assume Warrior is a similar case. Certainly when I was on CRV(T) in the late 80's during exchange they had manual traverse (albeit with a two speed - course / fine gearbox). From memory this is modelled by using the mouse for "course" (pointing to the left/ right of screen) and keyboard mashing for "fine" - but I maybe thinking of a different vehicle (or it may only apply to Warrior).
  2. Not sure how much work would be required in incorporating a DNS service to the application.
  3. ??? Anything can be OPFOR equipment. You can have M1s vs Leopards or whatever you desire. In fact you can play Russians as Blue and have NATO as OPFOR, if you create the scenario that way.
  4. Australia has moved to Daylight Savings and accordingly our Time Zones have bomb burst into Daylight Saving time (since not all states adopt it). By now most readers will already know who BG ANZAC is, so I'll put the information relevant to this week in first, then background, etc. If you are new to the Forum, feel free to read the entire post.

    Its called the roof. We have become adept over time with "external stowage". Although it got to the point that we needed to add a vehicle to some organisations to support extended patrolling (e.g. a Cav Troop) where the 1 x APC has been replaced with 2 x APC (each carrying half a section) but also carrying the additional "stuff" required.

  9. @Striker I'm sorry but I'm finding this map very problematic esp. where the bridges are concerned. Admittedly the scenario I'm working on has some snow but I don't believe it should impact routes crossing bridges. For example (there about six bridges that exhibit similar behaviour) 1. Route: Between waypoints 135 and 136 I used "Shift click" to lock the route to the road and have used a March command in column formation. Yet the BRDM consistently swerves off the road, fords the river and then spends the rest of the time trying to get back onto the road "through" the side of the bridge. The spawned civilian traffic is even worse since I can't give it routes. 2. End result 3D world: I've even had to resort to re-routing road traffic across railway links to ensure that they actually work: I'm unsure what has gone astray compared to the old map? I hate to say it but I'll take a working map over a pretty one every time.
  10. Ah ok. My issue is slightly different and happens during the conversion / update process: 4.023: 4.157: But as Ssnake mentioned, they are looking into it (as well as towns that disappear).

    They probably need more than nine rounds.
  12. Thank you @Lumituisku, I was starting to think I was the only one.
  13. until

    DELAYED! Standby for revised date / timing.
  14. I'm going with COA 2 "Delay". Once the package approaches completion I'll start a new poll to select the "least worse" dates / times. Again sorry for those who re-worked their schedule around this.

    BURBS Spotted

    Do they need more than one? I thought the RAC was now time sharing vehicles between the Regts?
