  1. Congratulations! Wise choice. I am a former 19K (Abrams) Course Manger responsible for training the lowest private to highest Non-Commissioned Officer. I would consider it an honor to help in any way I can, Learn it love it and be the best you can. In the Armor world the excellence comes in fire control systems (FCS) and tactic's. FCS is a science, the excellent gunner invests in knowledge of the complete FCS, asks questions on why or how the system operates. Lets prepare you for a solid future in mounted ground combat. Welcome aboard!
  2. How do want to communicate? These shots are not of the complete map.
  3. This is the Sandpiper or Range 80 directly across from Range 85. The gray area on the first attachment is the Combined Logistics Training Site. What are these photos? I do not recognize the icons. I should note that the Sandpiper (Range 80) is a collection of old shipping containers with holes cut in them for windows. I replaced them with structures, the BSG agreed with the move. This was what COL Melendez (BSG Commander) originally wanted, however he requested that I expand the area to facilitate BN and BDE operations, thus the JBMDL Map, great stuff.
  4. https://www.facebook.com/groups/243694440283940, this is a place were we discuss through pm the map build, I have grid checkers that keep me on track. If you look at the you tube channel you may find reference to ATTN: BSG. This means that it is a vid for the Battle Simulations Group 254th Regiment. It normally covers an issue brought up with a solution. Its easier to show it than explain it The group is a closed group to military and veterans only, but I am willing to make some exceptions, feel free to contact me. Cheers
  5. Below is the floor demo for the Battle Simulations group, You may notice that McQuire AFB and Ft Dix cantonment is missing. This is at the request of the BSG as it serves no purpose (Non-Maneuver Area). This Map is called the JBMDL (Ukraine), I also build a second map JBMDL (Syria). As soon as I finish a few small details I will get it out. 953150668_2021-02-1816-48-41.mp4
  6. This is the bowling alley at Dix, that water hole is on the JBMDL Map. 99660382_2021-02-0413-28-16.mkv
  7. Good point, I just recently got into it with a FPS individual trying to compare SB with WoT, but you are right, I have found some you tube vids on SB switchology that I have actually learned from. Let me know if I can assist you in anyway, my real life experience is however limited to US (M60A1/M60A3/M1IP/M1A1/M88A2 and some Russian tanks
  8. Great point about the sharing, the map is of the JBMDL (Joint Base McGuire Dix Lakehurst) in New Jersey (USA). I was able to build it from an old range control map for eight digit grids and google satellite for longitude/latitude reference. I do not see a distribution restriction on the map. The concept is simple, train troops through mission rehearsal on a simulator. The commander of the Battle Simulations Group seen a stupid little vid I posted on Facebook and was amazed, he then asked if Fort Dix was in the sim. I told him it didn't, he was disappointed in a map representation provided
  9. What I am attempting to do, is provide a customized map on my pc for a military unit to use. They are purchasing SB (Out of their own pocket) and wish to display my map on a tactical map floor trainer (ARES). I am on the West Coast and they are on the East. Once they have their SB fired up, I would like to make the map accessible. From what I understand they will be hooking up multiple pc's in the hope of a shareware server. My question is: If I conduct a session giving them the IP, will they see the map, and if so, can they download it for posterity.
  10. Maybe he should back to war thunder or world of tanks.
  11. I have created a map from scratch and wish to share with some friends. I have combed through an old SB manual with no luck. The map is published, but how do I get it on the server to share? I should note that due to slow wifi, I am still using 4.167
  12. Is there a way to hot key the daylight channel in the M60A3? Also the Ammo Select Unit (ASU) Moving/Stationary Switch. I know the CANT unit does not actually work in the FCS, but it was necessary to switch modes when moving and stopped. Just nice things to have, M28 Azimuth Indicator able to zero, quadrant elevation on the Gunners guard operational.
  13. I have personally trained the Armies of Taiwan, Thailand, Greece, Turkey and Brazil on the M60A3TTS which they consider to be a very formable tank.
  14. Please update me on this, it is exactly what I want to do.
