    Maybe I should bring it to a rally, and sell $1 tickets for a swing with it at various produce. :deal

    Bring your own produce. I'm charging for the use of the Tabar-Shishpar.

    Played some rounds with Dysco last night and could not get tier 8 wins! Shoot! I've got two tier 8s that are close to elited, and would like to get them soon. The T28 Proto, and the AMX 50 100.

    I wonder if I'll be able to see that when playing arty. Will help with those blind shots.

    I checked this out. You don't see that sort of detail around unspotted tanks.

    Not tank related but I finally got this finished. It's a 40" wingspan flying wing. Has the ability to fly on its own (if I get that far into it), GPS, pitot tube for airspeed and a video/flight camera and video transmitter. It's a quick little dude and doesn't enjoy going slow.

    I think a great deal of my rage on arty would vanish if they just limited what arty can see to the part of the map that the tanks they have radio contact can see.

    In finishing the last arty mission I will stand my my statements that unless you are a total idiot, anything over tier 6 will do something with every click of the mouse....you will at least stun them.

    And if you still want one shot kills look for an open top TD.

    For the most part, yes. But, in many games I sit waiting for someone to spot an enemy. When nothing happens I look for likely spots and drop a shell just for grins. About 1 in 10 get a hit on something.

    Have to say that arty in this game should be removed. It is not even close to a real representation at all so why have it? The one case that can be mads is for them to be used as TD's, but, the game does not allow sighting and smaller dispersion for such a role.

    But...for us who have really bad internet, arty is about the only thing we can play at all. And mine has gotten worse so I don't play much at all anymore. Shame cause I liked my light tanks too :)

    Just saw the FinF episode. Smithy did a great job. Definitely came down to nit-picky stuff.

    I saw that! I love this game, and I'm glad the upgrades over the last few years have made the game palatable to Jingles!
