    It's a very interesting collection of photos being compiled here but let me say I think it's a bit one-sided to post just the glorified images of the machinery blasting out their amunitions without showing any pics of - or making any comments about - the results of same, as everyone knows it's mostly innocent civilians who get butchered in any military wars by these very machines we're looking at....
    Just to make the point which I think is totally relevant to make in this thread, while posting a photo of my own ex-military vehicle; a Russian made truck which I use for peaceful excercises - I think she's much happier now with me!:)
    For all you military vehicle aficionados, this is a Gaz-66 4x4 V8 4.2 litre multifuel truck. It was used by the Czech military and only released in November 2006, used as a Radio comms unit or probably part of one with usually three such trucks forming the Radio unit. All the radio gear is gone from the truck but still has in the back its electricity power units and heating and air conditioning system. Great off-road camper / mobile workshop.

    WOW!
    Some spectacular pictures there, CyberGhost, thanks for sharing them.

    But...

    ...would it be extraordinarily rude of me to suggest that you might use ImageShack's thumbnail + size/resolution bar facility to display them in the thread?
    The whole lot come to 6.2MB, which is a heavy old load for people in non-broadbandland.

    Once again: amazing pictures! :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,553 ✭✭✭CyberGhost


    lol no it would not be rude, tbh, the reason I posted full pictures was because of the broadband, I thought almost everyone has them nowadays so why make people click when I can post a full picture.

    Anyways, if more people request it, I'll repost them in thumbnails. No problems.

    Because it screws the layout?

    This is what I've been up to over the last few weeks. Playing with my tank.

    The lads were nice enough to give me the VHS tape from most of my Table VIII run. Unfortunately, the night runs were taped on top of the day runs, so the first couple of day runs were deleted/overwritten.

    Anyway, it's the video from the tower's camera, while the audio is recorded from the tank's jump radio to hear all the internal conversations. You might find it interesting, even if it's not a 'photo' per the thread title.

    Hmm. That one looks suspiciously like an American one flying over Ft Irwin. Didn't know they had F models though.

    No, the picture below was captioned "French Panther".

    The great shutterspeed pic is neat... Great background too.

    "Wrong Button" wasn't a wrong button, it was a loose connection. The Hornet had just trapped, resulting in it stopping hard. The Sidewinder, however, simply broke free of its mounting, and kept going.
