  1. WoT v WT effort-thread

    I'm a laptop peasant, so only one screen.
  2. WoT v WT effort-thread

    Maybe I'm thinking of SB. There is a mode where tanks with no rangefinder don't get that ability.
  3. WoT v WT effort-thread

    It's not very useful in Arcade, it's more for Realistic Battles. You basically have to bind a button for it, but in RB, you press that button and a timer bar will appear. When the bar finishes, you will get a range reading on your target. How accurate and how long the rangefinding is depends on your gunner's rangefinding skill. Of course, not all tanks have this, only those with rangefinders, like the T-64A, M103, Conqueror, the M47/M48 Pattons, etc.
  4. Trade-offs in WWII Fighter Design

    The V-2 is not derived from an aircraft diesel engine as far as I know. However, the 5TD family was designed by Aleksandr Charomskiy, and it is related to the Soviet Charomskiy M-30 and M-40 aircraft diesel engines. They were in turn inspired by the Junkers Jumo 205. The M-30/ACh-30 would eventually be made workable on the Yermolayev Yer-2 by the end of the war, but by that time jet engines and turboprops were coming into service and there was very little point in continuing to invest in diesel engines for aircraft.

    Arcade is very heavily biased towards heavy tanks due to the premium it places on being able to push and withstand fire, while it doesn't favour TDs with no armour due to the retarded constant-spotting LoS mechanic

    AFAIK, SS.11, 9M14, Type 64, and Swingfire are all MCLOS. Only HOT, Konkurs, Drakon, and the Shillelagh are SACLOS
  9. WoT v WT effort-thread

    Do you play that in RB as well? I think the SS.11 is MCLOS in RB.

    I know they nerfed RP gains in Ground Forces, but that's just ridiculous
  11. Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

    This is an interesting paper on the contagious/viral nature of shootings: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0117259

    Is that without premium? 4215 RP seems absurdly low for 17 ground kills.
  13. Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

    I see. I believe civilians fired back at Whitman in the UT Austin shooting as well, though they didn't manage to hit him, just make him take cover

    Incidentally, is this the first time a "good guy with a gun" stopped a mass shooting perpetrator?
  15. Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

    He was apparently atheist for a few years according to NYT But my suspicion is that the immediate trigger for this was probably family. Possible that if he hated his parishioner mother-in-law so much it might have led him to atheism previously? USAToday
