  1. Intro

    Welcome sir and thank you for your service.
  2. Arnhem Bridge

    Film trivia - C-47 Dakota’s The filming that focused on the air scenes were all completed in 1976, at the beginning of September. This culminated in a number of air drops of approximately 1,000 men, as well as supplies being dropped by several Dakota aircraft. Joseph E. Levine Presents Incorporated (the film company) procured these Dakotas. All aircraft that were used had to be licensed to officially carry passengers and be fully registered. There was originally a deal to purchase ten, but this deal failed when airframes on two failed to have the required jump doors. In total, eleven Dakotas were brought; four were bought by Levine and seven more were loaned while filming.

  5. War Thunder

    War Thunder has a massive following and the graphics are simply amazing. I know a lot of people prefer War Thunder over WoT.
  6. 101 year old Doolitle Raider salutes B-25s

    One hell of a guy and he signed a book for me.

  8. What was the worst mistake made by Germany in WWII?

    I would say invading Poland!
  9. American St. Nick-A True Story

    Thanks for sharing Thomas and I follow the guys on Facebook too - they do an amazing job.
  10. What is your all time favourite aircraft?

    I think you can pick up F$s pretty cheap now - in civvy spec of course!
  11. Panzerkampfwagen VIII Maus ("Mouse") was a German World War II super-heavy tank completed in late 1944. It is the heaviest fully enclosed armoured fighting vehicle ever built. Five were ordered, but only two hulls and one turret were completed before the testing grounds were captured by the advancing Soviet forces. The Maus was intended to punch holes through enemy defences in the manner of an immense "breakthrough tank", whilst taking almost no damage to any components. Enjoy!
  12. My favorite plane of Gulf War 1

    I have no idea why they would want to retire - such an amazing warbird
  13. What was the most important tank of World War II?

    The Tiger was impressive and was initially a terror on the battlefield - but it was so unreliable and thirsty it broke down more times than not. The T-34 was simply and very effective - it had slopping armour as a starter.
