  1. Disregard all those congressmen calling for the release of the memo, this is just another Russian propaganda campaign for undermining our democracy. Thanks for having this Debunked!™ for me Snopes!

    They even used to have those belts made purely from HVAP ammo. The Wirbelwind was truly a force to be reckoned with, I remember even having one kill my SMK a while back.
  3. What amuses me the most is how you could change the date of that article from 2018 to 2017 and it'd work just as well.

    I believe it's the same deal with the T-V. It's a Panther A at br5.7 since it doesn't have the skirt armor or APCR.

    Right as I reach the finishing stretch of this stupid grind for speshul tanks and planes (and start a new semester of classed), my mobo decides that it's a good time to explode. I've already conscripted someone to fly planes for me some, but will probably need to spend some bird coins on the last few tank ones. (HMU if you'd be willing to do a tank thing or two, only need 4 more 2018+ score battles to get today's tank token)
  7. I don't recall seeing any actual proof yet, only his claim so far.
  8. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Haiti one country, not a collection of many "non-white countries"? It's one thing having people cling on so tightly to a claim that's yet to be proven, but then lying about and sensationalizing the statement on top of that? You'd probably be better off making your own "leak" at that point, I don't get how people like Trevor Noah can be as popular as they are. Haiti is also a shithole.
  9. So first he was being melted, but now presumably he's the one melting stuff because he's made of fire now?
  10. The right of large corporate media firms The Press to practice sensationalism and deceit is an essential part of any free and democratic country. To call fake news fake is to be literally hitler. I'm not concerned here about your opinions on Trump, more concerned about how much they like to play the victim and act like a tweet is anywhere near the same as jailing, assualting, or assassinating "journalists". Still gets me butthurt to this day.

    Doesn't bother me too much, the Crusader is still stuck with the marginally worse 6pdr and reverses at almost half the speed as well. Even when I hated the brit tree as a whole, I still was able to appreciate their 3.0 lineup. I can't imagine it being so great on city maps, but on maps that are just open areas and rolling hills, it's probably one of the best for its BR at that.

    So I got the AEC Mk. II, from the two battles I've played it seems to be very good. I wish the thing had smoke grenades, but it's excellent for seal clubbing. You've got a long barreled 6pdr on a mobile platform that can actually reverse, what's not to like? Both battles I played in it I nearly ran out of ammo. First one got me 8 kills before the end of the game. Second game is pictured below, I got 13 kills and was down to 6 rounds left before being overwhelmed by enemies because my team was pretty bad.

    I think gaijin is trying to tell me I should stop playing WT
  15. You all have any thoughts on this? The listing is tempting me. http://www.armslist.com/posts/7689619/chicago-illinois-rifles-for-sale-trade--enfield-rfi-410g I'm aware that I can find a single shot .410 for a lot less than that, but if all I wanted was a single shot .410, then I wouldn't be getting some obscure Lee Enfield conversion. I'm no expert on Lee Enfield rifles, they're probably the guns I'm least familiar with relative to its popularity, but my understanding is that $200 is a pretty good price. For example, I wouldn't be able to tell you if the 1905 BSA co marking stuff is good or bad for collector's value and all that. The surplus ammo for it is surprisingly cheap as well I've found out, sold here at about $0.24 per round. I should probably ask the seller if this is one of those that were reamed out to fit modern .410 ammo. https://www.luckygunner.com/410-inch-mk1-indian-musket-98gr-musket-ball-180-rounds

    Usually when something screwy happens with WT hit detection, it annoys me a little but ultimately doesn't bother me much. Just had all three bombs on my stalinbolt hit enemy ships, yet not register as actually hitting them. Does this look like a bomb that will miss the ship to you? Now will this miss too? Take note of how my score remains 5 despite having clearly hit a cruiser and destroyer with 500kg each. Should have damaged the former, killed the latter. Final bomb drop was me looping around to put the 250kg one on the cruiser.

    I've read that APCBC and some other solid shot round was buffed, I can really tell. Been playing Brits 5.3 tanks now that I got the AC IV, reliably 1 shotting most tanks with the 17pdr using APCBC. Last battle, I one shotted 7 tanks in my firefly of the 9 tanks I shot. The others were a M10 that I killed 4/5 crew in and a churchill VII that I barely hit in the first place.
  18. When will bubba learn? I could pay a meth head $1000 to graffiti the side of my house, but it certainly wouldn't make my home's value increase by $1000.

    Stock Yak-3 best fighter confirmed, got a 15 kill streak in AB with it just now, had to land since I would have run out of fuel.

    I assume you're liking the T14 then? I assumed it'd be fairly disappointing. The M4A2 is not doing so hot at the same BR and on paper at least looks similar. The MG weakspot and fairly flat 76mm turret face mean I've generally not had issues with them. Seeing as the KV-1 ZiS-3 is the same BR, does the T14 do much better at anything?
  21. WoT v WT effort-thread

    I seem to have bought two Thunderbolts, one being an airborne Stalin Jug, one being an Australian tank crewed by midget men. Needed a Russian premium plane regardless, but hoping the AC IV is actually decent too.

    The WT dev server was apparently up yesterday, some interesting things I'm too lazy to link.
  23. I actually own one, part of the reason I was curious in the first place. I've not really got any good pics of mine on hand, but it's in the low 4 digit SN range. They're well built little things, I could tell where the money went when I picked one up my first time.
  24. I probably should have clarified, but I couldn't find the gun itself listed on their shop page. Google still pulls that page up for me too, but nothing on their site seems to still link to it otherwise. https://www.magnumresearch.com/Firearms/Firearms.asp I'll admit to not knowing too much of the business side of things, but while I can see how that'd hurt how many Kevins they're making, don't see how it would impact the MDE's numbers. My understanding was that once Magnum Research got ahold of the rights to make a gun like that, they no longer needed to worry about ZVI. Kahr did buy out Magnum Research in 2010, so it could also maybe be that Kahr killed the MDE off shortly after taking over. Between the price, issues with early ones, and the weird look to it, wouldn't be surprised if it just wasn't selling well enough.
  25. Since I can't really find anything about this and a lot of you all here tend to be a bit more in the know than I am, would anyone here know if Magnum Research discontinued the Micro Desert Eagle? It first showed up in 2007 and was talked about for a few years, but seems to have disappeared by 2012. Magnum Research no longer lists the gun itself on their site, but beyond those two facts, I've got nothing else to really go off of.
