P66/65

 

Someone greased the wheels at Division to get a hold of M1A1s this early

Strictly speaking the M2's would not have LRFs (Think they were a crash upgrade program after Op Desert Storm)

Hmmm .... they might still possibly get a beating on Sunday if they are not handy with the steel, if you know what I mean ... 😇

We still have room for a few more guys.

 

And we will open another PLT of TNKs if we have 2 guys wanting to join on their own.

But we also need a PLT LDR for A3 ... ahem @chrisreb would be ever so grateful if you have the time and inclination 😉

A1 (M1A1)

A13

If still available.

(i believe I talked to someone recently who usually plays that role so if that person wants to that's okay for me but if it is free, I'd take it. I don't remeber the name unfortunately.)

We welcome you and I work with respect for everyone, but generally on a first come first served principle.

So I am happy to slot you into A13.

B24 please.  It's been quite some time since I have last played online.  Now that I'm back on a day shift schedule, this should be back to a thing.  Eager to make foes eat TOWs again!

 

Done and welcome back 😃
