That was me, thanks. Of course, I'll forget all about it once I'm in battle

Nobody knows, understands or can possibly explain why that preposterous creature does what he does what he does. In fact there is no explanation - or better, there is only one explanation: the person in question is stupid."

Thanks for sharing.

Glad you enjoyed it!

It does lead to some introspection. I have concluded that I tend towards the helpless character, to varying degrees. I also enjoy attributing the B1 or B2 Bandit title to salesmen I encounter; perhaps some day one will take it as a compliment.

Its a light with a medium gun, fully upgraded its vicious. I have the problem of trying to play it like my type 59, but it cant take hits and seems to be a magnet for enemy fire, I seem to do better when I roll with a quick medium or two, let them engage then swoop in for the coup de gras

I was just running my Church3 as a KV1S crew trying to get it to 100%, not running anything else though. Making lots of coin at least.

I still have to run my T-28 for 4k exp to get the KV-1. Guess I'll get the x5 in the KV1.

Boy was I right. Blow-off on the first try about game physics because I appologized that I didn't have a replay.
