    Can't do that I was only trained on Centurion and Chieftain
  3. Well, thats no reason to skip it ;-)

    Besides, if you where able to hit WITHOUT all the fancy stuff (LRF, stab, automatic lead...) should have a field day here.

    + I'll do my very best to introduce everyone to vehicles(thats why I mentioned the "training sessions")
  4. The esim download link was fixed
  5. Some pictures to give an idea of the competition scenario.
    It will take place on the (virtual) tank-range-9 at Bergen training area(google earth at 52°47'47'' N, 9°42'25'' E):

  6. We have "changed frequency",
    Our TS is now under
    Name >>>> TF2011
    ip+port >>>

    jus send a PM if you want the password
  7. The competition shooting, or what you have to do.

    The shooting will take place at the (virtual) range 9, Bergen training area.

    You have to destroy
    10 main gun tgts
    3 coax tgt groups (troops, trucks)= 150 points complete

    There will be 3 standing engagements and 2 engagements on the move.

    You'll have
    11 sabot (kinetic energy) rounds in the ready rack
    3 in the stand by rack

    -hit main gun tgt +60points
    -hit a coax tgt +10 points

    -fastest "time to engage" earns 200 bonus points,
    every competitor slower gets -20 points.
    (f.e. when you have the 3rd fastest time, you get 160 points)

    -fastest time to complete the run (last tgt destroyed) gets 300 points.
    You'll only get those points if you destroy ALL targets! If there is one tgt
    left, you get 0
    Again, every rank slower you lose 30 points.

    -each main gun round fired: -10 points
    (to reward ammo preservation )

    -stoping to fire during the "move" phases earns you -50 points

    So the ideal run will would get 1150 points
    lets see who gets it.

  8. When can I have my go?
  9. Only if you have the +2A with the microdrive fitted (and a kempston joystick)
    • Like Like x 1
  10. Well, 052100Bjul11 if you have the time.
    After that I'll be on the "nonvirtual" ranges of next try after 17jul11.

    So anyone interested in giving it a go, a short PM to me here or to "Grenny" at STEELBEASTS.COM · HOME and I'll be glad to help!
  11. Ok, I'll be online tonight. 2000hrs GMT?
  12. The 1st man has taken the challenge: Dr. Thodt

    9 Targets destroyed
    14 rounds fired
    all coax targets destoyed

    average time to engage:10.2 seconds
    overall time points: 0

  13. Do I need to get the router sorted out for multiplay before I can try it?
  14. I'm back from vacation.
