Yeah, and many more members of the "T- family" (including older variants and our own version of the T-95).

awesome_muffin wrote:and super weapons

No, however since the main objective is realism we can consider that many new abilities and weapons will essentially replace super weapons (this includes bombers, cruise missiles, numerous types of fire support, etc).

The emblem in question is called the Iron Cross (the emblem of the Bundeswehr, the German Armed Forces).

The Iron Cross haves a long story and was initially a military decoration of the Kingdom of Prussia (early 1800's) and was initially used by the German Army in 1870's (long before the Nazis controlled Germany).

The typical and traditional black and white Iron Cross is used on German Military vehicles such as armored vehicles (as seen on the Leopard model) or aircraft while the newer blue/silver variant is officially used to represent Germany's Armed Forces on other circumstances Upload.wikimedia.org

Note that Nazi-specific emblems (such as the swastika or nazi-themed Iron Crosses as used by Nazi Germany during WWII) are prohibited by German law.

The F-35B will be the specific Harrier replacement.
That specific 'B' version is the short takeoff and vertical landing variant of the F-35.

There are three main F-35 variants:

- F-35A:
Conventional Takeoff and Landing, mainly oriented to replace the F-16 (and the A-10 eventually, though I doubt it will fully replace it for a looong time);

- F-35B:
Short Takeoff and Landing, intended to gradually replace Harriers and the older F/A-18 Hornets;

- F-35C:
Aircraft Carrier-based variant, to phase out the older Hornet variants and to work alongside the F/A-18E & F/A-18F Super Hornets (and possibly the EA-18G Growler).

The "Operation" in which these specific units participated only involved vehicles (with the objective of testing urban maneuvers and tactical vehicle movement).

At that time infantry was not fully coded/included in game (soldiers were being tested in different simulations and tests).

Yeah, every Stryker variant will be able of receiving the Cage Armor upgrade (player's choice).

Da_Dooley wrote:i imagine the gun uses a CROWS system rite?

It's very similar, but these specific remote controlled weapon stations are called 'Protector M151'.

A Protector M151 variant won the CROWS II program and was chosen by the US Army to equip vehicles such as Humvees.

These specific weapons are based on the XM307 (grenade launcher) and XM312 (heavy machine gun) and will be a modernization of the M2HB and Mk.19 in game.

Note that the CROWS-controlled M2HB and Mk.19 (the weapons seen in the other Humvee render) will appear as well.

It's a burn effect, this image is very old though (it was made during tests with destroyed vehicles about one and a half year ago) so the newer destroyed models will be rather different.

Indeed the AC-47 is known as the "Spooky" (aka "Puff, the Magic Dragon").

The AC-130 haves various names depending on the specific variant in question. The "Spectre" typically refers to the older AC-130H variant while the more recent AC-130U is known as the "Spooky" (or "Spooky II" as a reference to the older AC-47 Spooky).

Quote:Since you are such an active MGS fan here at Mod DB and I am not able to keep up with the group as well as before (Look at my latest blog for one thing) I have decided to make you a group manager in the MGS Fans group. Enjoy your new privileges. Your duties are to post news and media, and to make sure that new members in the group get contributor status and can add/edit everything.

If you do not want this then fine, I may give it to another MGS fan. Just a heads up, I am a bit pre-occupied and am offline a lot more so I can not keep up with the group as much as I wish, (Of course barely anything actually happens in the group, but still I will most likely not be there and not notice it when something does happen).


Many thanks!
Unfortunately I'm afraid I'll have to politely decline the position of being the group's main manager, I'm afraid I might have to absent myself for a long period of time in the near future due to professional reasons and consequently, I won't be able to be online as regularly (unfortunately).

My apologies for the late reply, I've been away from my pc these last weeks (been in a vacation).

Quote:I thought you were online more, I guess I remembered incorrectly. I have some free time to keep up with the group now. You can still be a co-leader if you want though.

Ok, sounds great. I'll keep everyone updated as new Metal Gear-related news and content are released (there's bound to be a lot of new stuff coming up, specially because of the upcoming TGS - Tokyo Game Show).

I also deleted the previously posted comments in my profile as requested.

Indeed, AI balancing is vital (we want the mod to be accessible and have difficulty levels to accurately respond to their specific name) however, we'll also include a very "reactive" AI in order to make battles much less predictable.

Well, my MG36 is made from parts from various brands (it haves handpicked parts from brands such as CA, TM, JG, Star, etc).

aidas2 wrote:and I see you have m4/16 mags do you have that adaptor thing for m4/16 mags?

Nope, though I primarily use the high capacity C-Mags I also have some standard G36 mags as a backup.
Since these C-Mags have a large capacity it's always a good thing to have a spare battery or two depending on the planned match length.

About the M4/M16 magazine adapter, I personally prefer the G36 mags for the G36-style weapons :)

0eyiy0 wrote:m4/16 mags are standar for all nato countries
so the shape of the mag is going to be the same
without being for the m4/16

Just like other firearms (such as the Steyr AUG), the G36 was built to accommodate it's own, proprietary-made magazines (which are the weapon's standard) but just like you mentioned it also accepts STANAG 4179 M16 magazines with a specific magazine well (magazine adaptor).

The high capacity 5.56 drum magazines (such as the Beta C-Mag) can be used in any G36 version.

Though we do have a beta version planned for public release we don't have a specific release date at the moment (we'll release one and possibly more closed beta versions first, for Project Contributors, to perfect the beta before the full public release).

Since TAOW is using a lot of unique and experimental logics, it will require a very thorough analysis and testing before it's released to the public.

- [Metal Gear Solid: Rising] - PlayStation 3 / Xbox 360 / PC

The new "Lightning Bolt Action" title which will have Raiden as the main character was initially thought to be an Xbox 360 exclusive (since it was presented in Microsoft's E3 Conference) but was eventually confirmed (in Konami's E3 Conference) to come for both PS3 and PC platforms.

Raiden is also shown in his "Ninja" form but does have a different eye color (brown instead of blue) and armor.

- [Metal Gear Arcade] - Arcade Machines

Metal Gear Arcade will be a reworked version of Metal Gear Online (from MGS4) to be played on Arcade Machines.

The teaser site which was mentioned in earlier posts was eventually revealed to be Kojima Production's Special E3-based Site, I high recommend you check it to see Peace Walker/Rising's demo trailers, images and information: Konami.jp

Three new Metal Gears were unveiled at this year's E3:

- [Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker] - PlayStation Portable

Peace Walker will be a canonical title (main story) and will be directed and produced by Hideo Kojima himself (the Kojima Productions team that worked in MGS4 will be working on this title as well).

The game will be set in Costa Rica in 1974, ten years after MGS3 / four years after Portable Ops. The game's central character will be Big Boss as he will lead his Mercenary Army: 'Militaires Sans Frontières' (Soldiers Without Borders) to fight an unknown military force which invaded Costa Rica (which asked for Big Boss's aid to repel the offensive).

Big Boss's mercenary army, 'Militaires Sans Frontières', will eventually set the foundations for Outer Heaven.
This title is designated as the "Missing Link" in the Metal Gear series (to possibly "unite" the MGS3/Portable Ops settings with the ones from MG1 and possibly cementing the path to a Metal Gear/Metal Gear 2 remake as I suspect that Kojima may be planning).

One of the most curious things which was shown in Peace Walker's trailer is that four Big Bosses appeared fighting alongside (online campaign-based Coop mode might be included), a glimpse of what may be the new Metal Gear (machine) is also shown in the trailer.

Thank goodness that FileFront was saved, the original site creators bought the FileFront domain back from Ziff Davis Media (the company which owned the site and had intention to go ahead and shut down FF).

In addition, this was NOT an April Day's Joke, FileFront was indeed going to shut down.

Welcome back, Independent FileFront!!!
