  1. only if they explode.
  2. Lets assume Columbus did discover America - its a matter of perspective. What's not perspective is that Russia built at most 7500 BT tanks of all variants (depending on your source - most accept the Morozov Design Bureau Archives, which uses a lower number) - maybe 1500 more if you add in the early T-Series. Mid 41 they also had about 950 T-34s and 500 KVs. Far less than the 20k you and Suvorov use speaking of the light or 'cavalry' BTs. But let's not quibble over tanks and maps. Trying to convince anyone with only apocryphal evidence or circumstantial presumptions that Russia had planned and was ready in summer 1941 to actually invade Germany and that Barbarossa was a pre-emptive strike is not only folly, it is historically inconsequential. First the Germans lost their European war and then 45 years later, the Soviets lost theirs. It's over. Unless, as Gaspipe has said you actually believe Germany was trying to 'save' Europe which, in an odd way, they seem to be still trying to do.
  3. We need AIR FRUs so airplanes from both sides can spawn in mid-air.
  4. One can tell you've been watching 'The Luftwaffe Channel' as Homer Simpson likes to call it. Please enlighten us with your German and Russian sources for the alleged plan of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe (beyond the 3 Baltic States in June '40) in mid 1941. Surely not Rezun's (aka Viktor Suvorov) discredited Icebreaker? Of course, broad plans and war games were in place for an eventual/potential Soviet war with Germany as outlined in both Solonin's and Bobylev's Russian language research and publications - but any military general staff would be remiss in not planning or gaming all possibilities. Either way, to judge by end results, any Soviet plan to invade Germany in '41 would have been the 'cover-up within the cover-up' as the Germans reacted, attacked and lost all of Europe within 3 and a half years and Stalin and Russia ended up with ALL of Eastern Europe and barely missed out on Greece and Iran.
  5. Best idea. Especially every depot.
  6. congrats to all and thx and who is Petro?
  7. yeah, good luck and thx for all the hard work and volunteer hours. what should we be doing in the meantime - watching cricket or gambling in vegas?
  8. he's with hathcock, czeska, jw1959 and bud4u.
  9. see-saw campaign as always.
  10. You might have huge new income with your bestseller as advised by JWilly - use a pen name and everyone will think you're already famous, to wit: THE DOC DIET: How to Beat Cancer, Lose Weight and Get a New Wardrobe Look at the Same Time - by 'The Doc'.
  11. Congrats on the recovery. By the way - have you told them yet that you're a DOC? Might impress the nurses.
  12. I think that was me using the new DLC Opel Rocket Engine w/ Tiger Loudspeakers. Was a nice shot by the aaa gunner though.
  13. Rifle, Sapper and Engineer HE Satchels all do exactly the same amount of damage to FB tents: 5.5% each when placed on the outside of tents. The only noticeable change as of 1.36 is that splash damage (ie. the old 'double damage') on inside poles, top of tents or inside on ground of VEH tents is now 10% from one charge where it used to be 11%. Weirdly, a charge placed inside centre tent of damaged state INF tents still does 12% - as it did prior to 1.36. There are slight variations on all this splash damage depending on exact placement of each charge. As always, others may know more/better or have different info to add to this.
  14. congrats. another quality object brought into the world.
  15. the spawn depot posters are a great idea- also add colour and flavour to the game. admire the OP's work and enthusiasm in putting these together. perhaps other players with german or french as a first language might want to help out with the translation/grammar thing. one issue with the depot posters would be that CRS would have to code them to change when flags change - maybe this is as easy as matching the flag change/code - or maybe its impossibly complicated. maybe posters like this could be used to replace all the fake posters already in game? also downtown consider posting these up on the wiki under 'game advice or game posters' or wherever should be a spot on the wiki (and maybe the website and/or forums?) to link for 'Fan Art' already have great stuff from Propa and WillyTee
  16. +10/ plus inherently by the cap the cp/town mechanic the game is mostly CQB forcing ahistorical unit choices by players no matter whether the lists are historically accurate or not
  17. There's another different other thread about this and the answer seems to be 'yes' but its a bit of an incoherent answer and unexpected question to start with.
  18. GO DOC !
  19. How was the movie?
  20. I'll buy a 2nd month.
  21. Yeah. Keep on, Doc. Cochlear implants as mentioned can do wonders - helped a friend of mine a lot in the new world of his recovery. And I have to say I thought Stanky's words were 'hang in and fight the food fight' - which may be exactly what you need. Prayers as always.
