i cant wait to play this..

well luckily im patient and i think my this is something my dad will enjoy playing since he was a SADF paratrooper

he actually showed me a picture of the rifle models and thats how i became interested, i have no idea where he got the picture tho. but when i showed him the vehicles he got quite excited and asked me a few questions so i think they peeked his interest

i think maybe one of his friends sons maybe showed it to his dad and it got sent aroun, really have no idea

ahhh the Kwêvoël

Took this pic at youngsfield military base the other day

that would be really cool

well i cant wait for the allouette 3 or the puma

could be koevoet

It gives the game new challenges

If the ratel is located it can easily be taken out by an RPG

And yes the unimog is a bosvark

Marksmen did exist but scoped R1's were few in far between. I just spoke to my father who was a designated marksman and he said they trained on R1s and were issued R1s even when the R1s were being fased out. They were trained to use iron sights as shooting at range was impossible due to the lack of open space to clearly see a target. The scoped R1s are still used by marksmen today especially by the recces and the MRS

i want to go buy a casspir

i saw a privately owned one once in plettenberg bay and it was neon orange with black jagermeister logos on the sides it looked pretty epic

Good news everyone mugabe is finally dead !!!

Me neither but its still good news

i know a page on instagram sells a poster of that so they must have a high res image

no problem mate

SAMC and the recces yoused them when they were behind enemy lines doing spec op missions

but they were dreadfull to use apparently

if you go read the book salute the eagle he writes about it

but the marines also used it yes

both branches hated the rifle

well everything rattled and as kooij said its was more prone to fouling than the FAL

the quality of the R#s we got were crap at best

looks like they were trying a new replacement for the buffel that wasnt the casspir or ratel

it look like they took a buffel body and made i longer with added armor

id love to own one and then just make it a flatbed instead of the apc

but ill keep the armored part for when shit hits the fan

well it is basically the south african leopard

its really a shame that all those vehicles are either rusting aaway in some sandf museum or already scrapped

ahh the ratel 20

The scope on the vickers is real it was operated like that to have accurate fire out to 1km away which was quite easily achieved by the vickers and as for the picture where you ask about training or real combat it is a training exercise, photos or cameras for that matter werent allowed in the operational area but exercises were photographed

Those are 106mm recoilless rifles on the mogs

Hmm im thinking the picture of the combat area might also be a demonstration in a township maybe ? Or it could be an aftermath of a battle that occured ? Only thing throwing me off is the fact that all the ratels are so closely parked together

It looks more like theyre setting up a temp base or getting ready to go out on a operation

I wonder if theyre still using oerlikon 20mm's on it or if they switched to the bushmaster 25mm

It looks like a 20mm

Its probably still the oerlikons then

Cool little bit of info about a friend of my dads, his father actually helped to translate the swedish manual for the oerlikon into afrikaans and he helped construct the first training guide for it, he also worked with armscor/denel on optimising the gun for south african use

Well in the afrikaans and german language its pronounced as a zed sound

Not at all really

This was wayy back in the 60s or 70s and he still just got regular army pay

You americans always have to be the special one neh 😂

We still broke the enigma code that basically won ww2

Luckily im not a britbong

And i dislike the british just as much as you guys do so

@Springbok wooden stock R1's were only used in training since the wood was damaged easier than the plastic so onky the R1s with the plastic furniture saw action

@Springboki just asked a couple of my dads friends and himself

@Springbok ill ask my dad if some of his mech-veteran buddies have some info and ill go theough some books for you

A couple of high calibre rounds to the front and that engine is royally screwed

Ehh i guess but their radiatot grills werent as huge as this tbh

Easy to maintain and replace

The same for the ratel and olifant

Fun fact the tiffies (engineers in the army) could change a ratels engine on the move by driving the ratel onto a transport truck and taking out then droppong in a new engine and drive it off again and its good to go

@66Lost99 what you guys moving mate ?

Yup thats a really really early casspir

Ah the G6, the SPG that kicked the communists asses so badly at cuito cuanavale they deny the whole battle

That looks like a russian ZU-23-2

@LethalSaffa NGL that vid gave me a stiffy

Can i reccomend a huion tablet ? Its the best bang for buck tablets on the market now

I never knew the buffel had front and rear turrets, ive never seen a picture of it in that configuration

Thats also a later modification

oooh that looks sexy

are youi planning on adding the antennas to the top of the turret

i havent asked but are you planning on adding the olifant MBT ?

well the mk1 and 2

ahh i cant wait

the ingwe missile ?

i wonder if the eland will be accurate on the battlefield seeing that they knocked out more powerfull t55s

luckily the eland is fast and can manouvre quickly after firing

i believ the turret could stop a bit more

since the eland was our modification of the panhard EML

that i can believe

the eland was never meant to be a tank destroyer

it wouldve been cool if it was possible to lock a scouting ability to a certain vehicle like the eland

and then in later ops it could go to the ratel

as i was saying i think the scouting ability would only allow ground troops and the eland/ratel to mark targets such as enemy vehicles or groups of soldiers

like the system that war thunder implemented with their light tanks where you can scout/mark enemy vehicles accurately for the enemy team insteaqd of placing a marker on a map on the enemy vehicles general location

this would also allow the G6 to deliver more effective fire onto the target

but this is only an idea, i dont know if squad will allow that mechanic to work well

if you can you should add the ability to tie dead swapo onto the casspir wheel wells

( i know its not posible lol)

i am civil, i cant help it that the guys actually did do that

especially when i drive and the commander is being retarded..

or the squad leader

eish.. maybe you should go back to using the previous version man..

Take your time mate, quality takes time.

found them in a paratus magazine

uhh yes and no

trunk is fine

but branches are a bit weird

I need to get more ram so that i can run it properly

But its two 4gig dimms

So dual channel

Uhm i have a i5 6800 and a gtx 1060 3gb

negative, cape town

i wish i was in joburg because PC components are cheaper there

nah unfortunately im in capetown.. where one 8gb dimm is almost R1000

Now they need to add bigger maps as well

For helis theyll have to add larger maps..

im gonna join @Springbok for some squad, anyone else interested ?

theres a 3.8 gig update apparently

well i need to update still and i have kak internet

steam go home youre drunk

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/510515265834844160/631874141456171009/Capture.PNG

pretty sure thats not halfway

@Skaven9391 you currently serving mate ?

I was one of the first civilians on this boat

It was still busy with trials in simonstown and i got to ride along

just wondering mate

im waiting to join the SA NAVY so

hopefully ill soon be serving as well

im saving up to buy it

would you recommend buying it

im considering it as a birthday gift for my dad

the first two pics almos look like the kruger national park after a good rain season '

Is that a stikland diesel or is it also denel ? I know the samils had stikland diesels

I drove past a mk2 today

Lol but it wasnt layed out like that

Well it had a storage container where the spare wheel is and the spare wheel was where it is on the mk1

It was also a bit shorter but it was definitely a casspir

My moms boyfriend was a mech troopie and he told me a funny story the other day of a guy who fractured his skull when he tried to rambo kick the doors open, unfortunately the doors are spring mounted so if you kick only one door open itll swing back and as he was jumping out the door basically b*tch slapped him back inside

So according to my dad it was pink floyds brick in the wall

He also said to add hey jude and yesterday from the beetles

That first pic is epic

shout if you need any more lol

i got the R4 in ghost recon wildlands, and yes it is the R4 its on the stat card

its heavily modified in game already

this needs to be added in squad

as a poster somewere

eish kalmeer manne

the green paint doesnt suit it

but these things scare me

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/510515265834844160/636271257658196000/Sri_Lanka_Military_0204.jpg

you should watch kaaplander

ill check if i cant find any info

okay good news you dont have to model the engine

since the radiator is behind the mesh you cant see the engine

there are two versions

one with the mesh and one with slats like a ww2 halftrack almost

Yeah they couldnt get it moving because of the weight of the water and melting tires so they had to leave it

is this fallout 3 ?

ive yet to have a squad game like this

i wouldnt either because theyre horrible to fly without a joystick

its trash.. ghost recon wildlands has a better mmodel

and cape town doesnt look like that lol

Just letting the guys who play war thunder know that update 1.93 is dropping today at 09:00 GMT

Its a really good video to listen to and chill

Sorry for your loss mate.

take your time mate, i know what youre going through. we can all wait you sort out everything you need to do and when you fel comfortale and ready to come back we'll be here

just watched the hurt locker and i never ealised there was a ratel 20 in the beginning of the movie

timestamp is aprox. 00.01.46 minutes in

Why does it require 8gigs of ram when it looks like a game you can play on mobile ?
