I dont like derps actually, I would rather shoot faster with more consistent damage. It was with the 57mm zis2 gun, 26 rounds per min, 112 pen, 85 dam.

oh, but you only put one or two rounds into each target for the kill... are you friends with Norm?

I was finishing off what someone else started each time. Total damage was only 600

Version 2.0 of the rack is done
Note the KTM orange groove filler





Nothing too scientific.. I took the hole that was at the back.. slid it to the front and drilled another hole. The leading bar sits nicely up and over the seat with no contact. I still have LOTS of room even with a backpack on. I think I may still add a "cross" on the luggage rack even though the bike is super stable with the tie downs going to the lower tie downs.





Here you can see the twist ties and how easily they hold the front wheel and stand it off


For local day rides.. the Gobi's offer tons of space for carrying ride gear (and a place to lock/store moto gear when pedaling).




ok.. back to shooting 12 year olds and chinese bots on the interwebs

Tank related content:


You know how murphy's law is that your first round you die quick (and your team wins) so that you get shit for your times 3?

I got lucky today and actually hit a 6000+ damage round for my times 3 with the Object



...of course Murphy was back the very next round with my T57 Heavy and I got nuked by arti without shooting anyone

I had luck in the opposite direction - sorta.

8 shots, only two penetrations (!). I'm not sure if I need to try regular rounds and give up on Gold rounds for the 110E4 like I did for the 110E5, but I will say that over many games - Gold rounds out of a 110E4 bounce more than they do anything else.

So here's my 'luck': somehow still spotted for a shit load of damage, and amazingly earned more XP than you did for all your good work at damaging tanks (because, you know, the 110E4 is now considered a scout tank). 4,819 damage upon detecting?

(Trust me, I wish I had earned my points with damage - awfully frustrating having a big TD just bounce and bounce shots)

Binocs and the Recon skill I guess, lol. There were a ton of my team's E-100's up ahead of me and who were closer to the action.

Doesn't 50,000 EXP appear to be a little high?

So far, it's just 15 wins in a day. We'll see if the wording changes though. With WoT promos, it tends to.

Yes. Yes it does. But they ran this mission all last month too. What it seems like to me is that the only way to snag it is to already have premium. So the rich get richer while the rest of us get grinding.

++++++++++

I downloaded War Thunder last night and began playing it. What a gorgeous game with such a terrible UI in the garage. It's like beta WoT garage interface bad. What does anything mean? How would I know without mouseovers? It'll take some time, but the beauty of that engine, and the fun of their two hardcore modes, makes it worth my while. The Arcade mode is less fun than WoWP to me, but the other two modes are fantastic.

That's interesting, Norm.....I actually prefer War Thunder's arcade battles to WoWP. There's just something about having a hit point bar above a plane that's just wrong. Anyway, if you want to squad up in the planes sometime, just say the word.

What's your WarThunder in game alias? Mine is TheatyHannington. If you see me in WoWP or WT, feel free to send me a flight request. I love playing with other people.
