I can remember firing on Hohne ranges one year, and a contingent of Americans brought a tank onto the range we had never seen before, they called it the X1 ( later to become the Abrahams).
When we first saw it it looked like it had come off the set of Star Wars....

It was a good thread until you crawled out from under your bridge, ****head, and it'll be a good thread after you haul your scaly green hide back into the Stygian depths from which you came.

True. And if your measure of greatness is "I gotta boat that flies fast" then that's an impressive thing. Don't get me wrong. Flying boats are all kinds of useful. They just weren't all kinds of useful as strike a.c.

Had Yamamoto not been killed in 1943, would of been the possibilites on the outcome of the war?

Well, according to the thread, changing the timeline by having Yamamoto survive would lead to tanks being used to defend Finland from attacks by torpedo armed flying boats piloted by trolls.

Go figure.

I see Iron Sky is doing well.

Lets see what else we Finns can foist on you...

The world would be a boring place with out you Finnish maniacs




Hey! You sold those to us! (not meaning speed cams)

http://www.kmweg.de/de/



I know...

I was in the army back then. We were still a reinforces recon bataillon. Not only mountain recon, but also an air drop recon group and heavy tanks - the Leopard 2A4. We alsways joked: "The only thing we aren't capable of is an amphib invasion".
Unfortunately, our Leo 2s were mostly in storage and only a fraction was used.

Then, some day, a few officers in a strange uniform came by. Two Leopards were taken out on the parade ground. They showed all they got, and all that was possible without shooting their guns. We enjoyed it very much.

It wasn't until later when we were told that those strange officers were finns and our beloved Leopards were presented to them to be taken away from us!




I feel your pain. They are downsizing in Finland too. But at least Leos got good home for a while.

But I resist the notion of "strange uniform". After all, it is almost "feldgrau" and traditionally FDF things come from Königlich Preussisches Jägerbataillon Nr. 27.

Hadn't thought about that angle. They did banish Yamashita for a time after all.

Wow. SIX engines. Now that's gaudy!

BTW is that your modeling creation or someone else's work? Pretty good job, even if I am a fan of the more weathered look.

"Stalking" is more Princess Nicky's game anyhow. Doggie may have an issue with certain topics but for passive-aggro you can't beat the Thread's resident call-girls for a "swarm, multiply, and scratch" driveby trolling. Just hope they haven't driven Cdr Storm away. I like his work, even if his conclusions are, errrm, suspect.

I must concede that I cannot take credit for it. It is indeed a superb job but I believe it is the companies own workmanship.

Sorry about all this, Footslogger. Ask a simple question around here and the Guilty Parties show up to trash your thread. Even those who have no knowledge of the game or for that matter, much knowledge at all think they can have a free for all. Such scum certainly do all they can to ruin the forum for the rest.

Yep, USMC - United States Marine Corps. Enlisted initially for a four year ground combat infantry guarantee. I just get mighty tired of a lot of little minuscule punks trying to ruin things for everybody. If more people would step up and call their cowardly bluff it would end much sooner. I admit to being a part of the silent majority, but more of us should speak up and call a punk a punk and a coward a coward. It would make the world a much better place.

He'd have to start such a campaign by bankshotting terminus' fat, bald head into the garbage bin first and he knows it

Naw, I don't think you'd want to start off by banning pompous, unseemly, arrogant trolls. You an ur buds would be the first to go

It'll have to be spun somehow to make it seem legit.

Ah but one mans junk is another mans treasure! I have used those beautiful FB's extensively as the Axis in WiF campaigns extensively. Their extended range enabled me to reinforce armies from Persia to Morroco in such rapid time that entire enemy offensives were either delayed or even canceled altogether! I cannot over-emphasize their extreme glory & accomplishmens.
