Wait was there supposed to have been one yesterday?
I understood mid September  ;O

Tango , Alfa can we do a bit of manual range finding at some point?

I'm glad to do that. Any particular tank? I tend to favour the current Leopards and the Sho't Kal.

Both of those would be awesome 

OK, no worries. As and when you take a look at the Sho't Kal in the Wiki, the gunsight graticle pattern looks complicated. The reason is that it was designed to be used with a .50 cal ranging gun, but SB does not model the ranging gun in the Sho't Kal. We can go into the full story next week. Just keep in mind that it's not as complicated as it looks. I used this sight back in the '60's with a ranging gun, but once you see how it can be used without an RG, it's not overly difficult. Really! B|

So first serial:

 

Semi Indirect or maybe a Smoke mission? ;)

Hmmm...didn't think we had smoke rounds in the loadouts: default ammunition for the SK is: 6/26 L36A1 APDS, 6/26 L35A3 HESH . Even if we had them, I'm not sure that we have the means of setting the fuse timings.  Come to think of it, it would be rather nice to have the canister round as well! We didn't get as far as Semi-Indirect shoots, just discussed, so I'll limit the practices/discussions to what we have: HESH,  Sabot and coax. But feel free to join in, as you've probably got a better grounding than I have. Advanced Gunnery course, perhaps? :)

And once we've dealt with the #30 sight, someone can give me a hand sorting out how to post graphics into this website. I have no idea why there are two diagrams of the #30 above, let alone why I can't seem to post anything into my signature other than text.  Small stuff, really, but irking at the same time! >:(

I think (based on my own experiences) If you attach an image to a post and then subsequently edit the post, that the number of images start to rise.

 

Original post = 1 image.

 

Edit post once = 2 images.

 

etc.

 

I've found you need to delete the post in the "edit" so that there are now images in the body of the post and only the attachment.

 

BTW: Wish I was there - I could let you run this on SB Pro and have a boresighting screen . :)

Thx, Mark. I'll try this out when comes time to add files to future posts.

 

WRT the #30, the lack of a ranging gun is unfortunate, but I'm advised that mantlets in SB can't hold, for whatever reason, more than two guns. So, no surprise, we get a main gun and a coax. Maybe future updates will allow RGs into the mix. Fortunately, the #30 is somewhat less complicated than some of the WP sights in use at the same time. As for boresighting, I'm not sure that we can adjust the graticle pattern to do the boresighting drill. Interesting if we can! B|

I had a good time last night with the Sho't Kal/Centurion. Thanks to all who showed up.

 

You might want to try this scenario to practice your SK gunnery. You have unlimited ammunition (Sabot and HESH), you're on high ground overlooking a wide arc out to about 1600 yards/meters, and you have a plentiful supply of T-62's, movers, who are quite willing to shoot at you. Enjoy!  Tanks Shot Kal vs T-62 conc.sce

This coming Wed night another training session on Quick attacks  in a combine arms setting.

Same time , same place.

 

 

Who's in?

 

Hi 12Alfa, Gusy and I will attend with the potential for another person or two to tag along. The opportunity for some training is greatly welcomed!

 

Where should we meet and what time? I am assuming the SteelBeasts TS at 9:00pm EST, but please let me know if that is wrong.

Only for a few minutes tonight I'd like to discuss the crew commander's use of binoculars, because:

- the Wiki says that the cc can access his binos by pressing the "N" key, but

- I see no binocular control listing in the control menu, and

- the "N" key already has several "toggle" functions in the control menu, so

- what's the story?? o.O

 

TIA!
