I hated the 12t so much I sold it before getting to finish it. I was a total noob so it was just too much of a specialty tank for me to drive. Having improved my gameplay slightly I may just buy it again to get to the 13-75

Went 18-10 and one draw. i still need to crank out 94 battles. I don't think I'll get er done.

funny thing was I was just cranking out battles last night and I had some pretty good ones.

If there's anything I like more than chasing down Lee's it's dropping rounds on WT100E's with 8 inches of fury.

One game a little while ago the big TD guys were bragging. 268 guy "I can do 850 dmg per shot!" E100 "I can do 1050 damage per shot!" 183 guy " I can do 1150 per shot!" I generally don't chat in game, but I couldn't hold back. "awwwwww you guys are so cute"

I almost got m'arse kicked once on my KTM 950 (which is huge... I've had the suspension extended to 265mm and I can barely touch one toe - I'm 6ft)

...when I pulled up and parked beside some dude at a bar on his Harley and looked down at him and said "your little bike is adorable!"

Seal clubbing at its finest...... IMHO of course

Ida had ten but some kill stealing bastard who did nothing else all round managed to put the kill shot in while I was reloading. Shoulda just TK's everybody and done it all by myself.

Here it is.

You can go into one of the files and change the number of lines.
Note: You can also change the size, but it causes some of the I roman numerals to disappear. Mildly annoying when you are looking for a specific tier to run and don't have them all memorized.

Hey, this 7-Page article by an American on the Russian archival perspective of the IS3-IS10/T10 is pretty good! It even has pictures! Here are the first two paragraphs:

Quote:
Red Star – White Elephant? Were the IS-3 and T-10 Series Soviet Tanks the Monsters They Seemed in the 1950s? Not According to Russian Sources...

by Chief Warrant Officer 2 (Retired) Stephen L. “Cookie” Sewell

One of the eternal symbols of the Cold War in the 1950s was the annual Moscow “October Revolution” Parade, in which hundreds of tanks and armored vehicles would thunder across Red Square every November. Western intelligence scanned for new weapons to be introduced, and high on the list for many years was the IS-3 “Joseph Stalin” series of tanks, ending with the T-10M in the early 1960s. To many people, no other weapon personified the “Evil Empire” and its domination of Eastern Europe than these monstrous tanks. As a point of fact, both the U.S. and the U.K. created and fielded their own heavy tanks specifically to combat these monsters.

But were they really the threat that they seemed? One joy of an open society is open archives, which permit access to a different picture of reality than that once accepted as fact. The archival view of these monsters today is that they were enormously clumsy and disappointing clunkers, armed with obsolete guns and ineffective fire control systems that were marginal at best. Worst of all, more than 10,000 of these heavy tanks were built at enormous cost. Only a small percentage of that number ever found their way into units, and most lived out their lives rusting in Siberian storage depots.

Of course, the first comment under this article is:

Quote:
As someone who had chance, to have discussions and opinion exchange with Sewell – he should not be used as very reliable source (nothing against him, but he is like Belton J. Cooper), and have tendencies to write and claim some of old myths, and even in few cases, invent own data, to back up his claims, or pulling out the worst possible data from something, just to make it look even worst than it actually is (similar to Pashalok’s bashing of German engineering). In my opinion, it is better to read Zaloga, if you don’t have knowledge of Russian language, and acsess to books written by their own authors.

It's an interesting read, but leaves the wrong impression. Every force has it's albatross, but that doesn't mean that it is useless.

I'd bet a paper similar to this one will someday exist to describe the B-2 bomber program; it may be a recklessly expensive program, but it provides just enough tactical flexibility to muck up the enemy strategy.

See also; Pentagon Wars, mainly for the laughs.

Well stated.
