  1. Well crap, that was like the coolest ERA and now it's the lamest ERA :I Ah well, at least it 'splodes good.
  2. On the topic of different types of shaped charges. I seem to remember awhile back reading about cumulative jets and non-cumulative jets, but I rarely see anyone make the distinction. I have source amnesia so I have no guarantee that it's a legitimate thing, but assuming it is, what is the difference in functionality, construction etc between charges that produce cumulative vs non cumulative jets? If this is complex enough to warrant its own topic let me know.
  3. Ok so that was a bit worse than I thought. I assumed when he mentioned the ERA that he just didn't realize the Arjun II was seperate, they are on the same wikipedia article afterall. . . The fact that the wikipedia article says the Mk II has compartmentalized ammo (dunno if it does) speaks to him reading the wikipedia article and not realizing there are two versions, or maybe he just doesn't distinguish. But yeah, I thought he was above stuff like "rifled guns are more accurate." I don't want to just beat up on him, but it is kindof annoying that he propagates stuff like this to people that think of him as an expert; that's 40+ thousand people that will believe this stuff on their deathbed. Could be worse though, like so much worse.
  4. Yeah this is pretty much how I feel. I've watched him play Steel Beasts for awhile and just don't use him for tank information. He's no expert, but at least he doesn't make any radical claims, he falls into common traps like 'Challenger 2 is best tenk' but I don't think he's ever said anything that made me have to just get off the internet for a day. Also hi, am also new here and couldn't find the forum rules until just now :x
  5. "beamed the fuck down" is probably the best wording for that I've seen so far. Although when you say "As it is" are you saying the final version had carbs instead of injection? That would be news to me, but I'm not arguing, just seeking clarification.
  6. Is the stuff on that M60's turret supposed to be ERA? One giant ERA block for each turret cheek seems a bit odd.
