I shall repair this, never fear. Also, there could be more before the night is out. hehe
That's probably another reason Challenger 2 sales are pending. ._. Darn Americans. Can't even sell military equipment without them muscling in. But seriously, I never realised Britain had quite as good relations with Oman. Wikileaks said Oman helped Britain get some British sailors realeased from Iran because it has sway with Iran politically. Also, I never knew there was an Omani camel backed bagpipe band. That is truly epic.
Yeah, copying the design of a recon tank and kitting it out for infantry support isn't gonna end well.
Last time I spoke with my Dad (He is a Logistical civilian contractor in the british army, former Royal Engineer) he said that Britain sold about 40 of them to Oman with further sales pending to be completed after the current economic crisis.
You're from Oman, judging by that? I thought Britain sold Chieftans and Challenger 1s to your country? But yes, your country has the rare honour of bearing Challenger 2s in it's arsenal.
Based on what you've said I'd guess at the fact that this is sort of the finalized standard Patton, it's 'lineage' being the ton of versions prior to it going all the way to the first converted Pershing tanks.
Well, technically not re-armed as the Scorpion 90 or Scorpion 2 has a Cockerill 90mm gun.
Yeah, I've read somewhere that the swelling of the shell often lead to the end of the barrel widening, creating a blunderbuss kind of shape, not as pronounced as that though.
There are grooves in the barrel that fit the missile's fins to aid in accuracy. Unfortunately the grooves weakened the barrels structural integrity causing them to split and crack until they finally shattered.
HUZZAH! LONG LIVE THE COMMONWEALTH!
These are British, just to let you know.
Funny you should say that. During the French revolution the loyalists waved white flags so they could be told apart from the revolutionaries.
I just wanted to thank you for having been able to have a civil discussion with you. I know there are too many people who would have turned this into an insult contest.
Mmmmmm, retoast, delicious.
Which makes it a scott
Can't tell if witty comment, or serious about purchase.
That's why I am an atheist, in all the times I ever prayed to God, no matter what, there has never been any act upon them. I'm not talking about stupid prayers like 'Please let me win the lottery' I mean serious things. I don't share this often but when I was 12 I prayed to God and asked that he would let my Grandad survive his tumour(s) for 3 months more so that he could see me go to secondary school. He died 3 days later, on the one day I couldn't visit him in the Hospice (SAT day). This coupled with several other serious things that I prayed for that didn't come true/be influenced left me feeling like I'd been kicked in the balls and robbed. That's why I would prefer to believe in those religions that accept that the God/Spirit they believe in is simply an icon or symbol to draw strength from. I know I sound daft probably but as I stated previously, it is just my thoughts. I did not mean to offend anyone.
All while talking about the correct lengh of the perfect baguette and what type of cheese to put on it.
Abaddon: I won finally.
Creed (in orbit): Course you did, now I'll just push this button and BOOM!
Abaddon: An Exterminatus Fleet, to get here so quick it must've taken some kind of tactical geniu... CREEEEEEEEEEEEEED!
That soldier is thinking 'Wow I'm such a troll'.
Geoff: Hey Bert look at this, it's...
Bert: Don't touch it it's a hun trap!
Geoff: My eyes they burn, the milk BURNS! The goggles do nothing!
Kuat Shipyard Owners: I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the noise of my credits clinking together!
My most anticipated mod... this.
This is... *squints to make sure it's not a mirage* bloody brilliant!
Keep up the good work.
I can picture it now:
Officer: 'AH ze tommies zend cars against us, we vill crush zem'
*vehicle turns around*
Sergeant:'You had to jinx it Klaus, didn't you?'
No, sorry, 'twas a thirty, I looked back at the picture I had. It's a damn tiny picture.
The only LRDG chevys I've seen have Vickers, granted one of them did have a passenger seat .50.
You can delete two files in the data area, I think, called descr_geography_new, they may have export in front I can't remember.
Don't jinx it! :)
But seriously I know what you mean, the quality of the mod is comparable to what you often find in expansion packs.
Couldn't agree more.
