  1. Having spent a monday in the office I found this one: http://www.bote-aus-der-buckligen-welt.at/flash/bote149/files/assets/pages/page0024.swf weapon: russian tank - not very helpfull again
  2. One of my teachers told a story of tanks firing at our school (or rather the SS firing from it). That most likely would have been Shermans against a massive stone wall not causing structural relevant damage but making quite a mess. My grandfather told of a direct hit (no idea by what weapon) against a wooden structure pretty much bringing it down. Thats very vague, but the best I have to offer.
  3. I have no deeper knowledge, but Zug in german is the general term for platoon. If the SS with their habit of naming everything "assault"something used it I would guess veryone else did too.
  4. Bolds by me. Please reread critically and reconsider your attitude. You are of course also free to debate. They way you are handling this forum could qualify you for a director at RT. I am out of this and this time for good, but me beeing me I cant restrain myself to make some last points: 1. I can beat you and your brother in a fistfight with my right hand tied to my back. I just choose not to because I had these kind of fights every day the last 10 months. 2. If Russia is the only one responsible for the dead and displaced in Eastern Ukraine, who is responsible for the dead prote
  5. Without the direct actions of France and England and Lend and Lease a lot of death and destruction most likely could have been avoided according your undisputable logic applied to Eastern Ukraine. And it was the Third Reich ultimatly responsible for the firebombing of Dresden. If you send your army away to conquer the world the enemy will come and burn down your citys. Always was like that, always will be. Even precision ammunition wont change this. If you reduce these actions to Bomber Harris or some other individuals you are loosing the big picture again. Hitler was warned about the st
  6. Since I initially responded to one of your posts I am surprised I am OT. As long as the topic is the situation in Eastern Ukraine and not bashing Russia. I admit I am OT on this one.
  7. These are facts: 1. Ukraine wanted to sign asociation agreement with EU. Russia grumbled and did nothing. EU didnt want to sign. In Fall 2013 Merkel said Ukraine is not ready. 2. Ukraine needed money, asked EU. Negative. 3. Ukraine asked Russia. Got credit. Moscow demanded to rethink alignment. 4. Ukraine did. 5. Protesters supported by Western powers moved to the street, occupied public buildings, armed themselves and fought police with deaths on both sides. 6. Yanukowitch and western officials signed an agreement for early elections. 7. Next day violent overthrow of Yanukowitch. Nato
  8. This is great reading. Good idea to make an AAR and well executed. I get very immersed in the action without loosing the overall picture.
  9. Hi Bil, loved all your AAR. First one for me to follow "live". Thanks for putting in all that effort.
  10. Yeah, that was me. Now I am stuck with this slow paced, boring and graphically outdated game I didnt want and cant even update without key. I demand a vehicle pack with heli riding flamethrower infantry and the ability to pick up SMGs!!! - and the key!!!
  11. Didnt get you wrong. I think its great we have a game were we can discuss the way the MG is carried by the pixel soldiers.
  12. You do not take into account it was an preemptive strike. I have a preference for # 3
  13. I think submarines were one of the smarter moves of Germany regarding effort and effect. They fell behind technological and had a huge problem with sigint but stragetic it was way smarter than building very modern and expensive battleships for instance. Submarines had the potential to partially balance allied production. One might wonder on the other hand why later in the war Germany build an assortment of badass tanks and another assortment of more economic fighting vehicles while the powerhorse US concentrated on one reliable (but not very badass) tank design with good success and the SU
