  1. Past hour
  2. Similar to Prez Biden's message yesterday.
  3. If you havent had any joy, ive a tankograd book on the Leopard 2A4 that has a couple of photos of the radios that might do the trick for you. I can probably scan it if you need it.
  4. Today
  5. Yes and no, like much of the area it spilled over the border with neighbouring areas and the neighbours had a hand in it, from the wiki: "In 1962 a dissatisfied tribal leader, Musallam bin Nufl (Mussalim bin Nafl), formed the Dhofar Liberation Front (DLF) and obtained arms and vehicles from Saudi Arabia.[10][11] Saudi Arabia and Oman had earlier clashed over ownership of the Buraimi Oasis, and the Saudis had already supported two failed insurrections in the Jebel Akhdar in the interior of Oman in 1957–59. The DLF also received support from Imam Ghalib Bin Ali, the exiled Imam of Oman, who
  6. It will never really be an apples to apples comparison as ARCHER is a real SPH while CAESAR is more an evolution and replacement for drawn artillery,.... But lets try anyway Archer is faster to shoot yes.....but not by as much as you think....With a competent crew CAESAR is ready to shoot in well under a minute ...maybe 40-45s ....the few extra seconds will not make an appreciable difference IRL. The Archer has a marginally higher ROF.....but not for long with its meagre 21 round magazine. And what BAE doesnt tell you is that the high ROF comes at the cost of accuracy (only in the
  7. Colbert is like a Smolensk IMO, if you get the Russkie game breaker you don't need another. Paolo Emilio looks more fun, seems like a Khaba, but well implemented.
  8. Apparently, the rumors are based on a wall painting in Algeria's defense ministry, showing a Su-57 among other aircraft:
  9. Washington, D.C., October 3, 1863 By the President of the United States of America. A Proclamation. The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitu
  10. Really?.....considering that the CAESAR is the only battle proven system of all the candidates, and further is renowned for its reliability and accuracy , i'd say that you are pretty wide off the mark there.
  11. Nah, just some 8 inch support sport.
  12. I dont know whether they are IN their armed forces, but we do apparently still have British Army training teams present there. There was a genuinely interesting story in Huffington which suggests quite how much we have there, far more than I was suspecting. https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/mark-curtis/britain-oman_b_11426144.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuYmluZy5jb20v&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAHbsfVWc5mD3f1tb6057RTesXLJXs_Co7zqi6K7jBdr7ZW-t6awIkdpD1cl5XnM5_iIUpsyzfZh7np5OOzjNM0cwbqdlxWM-WGv-IM0nQ9eSfrZdPGlce2V2HTdfcTCjdKOXgL9iE0ggs67M1Yjw6uN1ALWkr1i9QuORFH8CeR1f
  13. I love it. Its completely nutty (particularly the Halloween episodes) but im rather surprised how much the scriptwriting holds up at this late date. The one where they save President Teddy Roosevelt from an assassin was particularly amusing.
  14. I hope they were properly treated in a tank, or they are going to rust out again in a few more years. I think the museum at Gosport had to put Holland 1 in a treatment pond for something like 10 years before they could display it.
  15. Why would he do it? Because he is.... Ill always respect the Giuliani that took down the New York Mafia, and behaved so well on 911. This Giuliani I dont recognize. Perhaps he was abducted by aliens and hollowed out, and some reptilian is wearing a Giuliani suit. Well all the best suits are Italian, right?
  16. Still a source of international terrorism, still the location of one of our major trade routes, and still ultimately a lot of money to be made there for British businesses. We can no more ignore the middle east than we can ignore Eastern Europe.
  17. (157) Sikorsky Raider-X aircraft and simulator - YouTube
  18. Houthis = Iran, In all matters of military and foreign policy.
  19. Especially by mothers and fathers. 'Why you get a B?!?!?? You a-sian not b-sian!' This is a refrain I have heard jokingly from many asian friends. One being a cop who scored just short of perfect on a police shooting qualification. His father was not happy.
  20. Are you implying he's flying the Mig 23 (Dong)Flogger?
  21. If you want to get down; Down on the ground Cocaine...
  22. A rifled tube is going to give us better stabilization than fins, which are always more susceptible to wind. The simplest way is to muzzle load but probably also the slowest and least convenient.
