just asked my Dad they M115s they were shooting in Germany were supposed to be good for 30k ish max BUT unless they were in a war game they rarely fired more than than 25k (i think that's where i got those numbers from...) he also told me that though the paperwork said 30k a good fire team with a good FO could feasibly shoot 40k+ from where the batterys he was with as positioned. and just a little fun fact. their were 3 Russian tank groups INSIDE the outer edges of that max range... and they had "a full compliment of tactical nuclear shells for each set of guns"

Dad also said that the actual language of the orders for his unit pretty much said that their whole point was to take out as many red army personnel and equipment as possible wile slowing them down as long as possible to give the US as much time to mobilize a fighting force to combat the soviets.

so basically it was a suicide mission if some one fired first. but i guess it works out for him as the average life expectancy of an F.O. in Vietnam was about 12 mins after the first shell landed.

sorry guys... its a long week and im really out of it tonight lol


and yes Bri. 1 is good. but their were 12 in a unit in 3 groups of 4 and they usualy fired 1 from each group at any given target at any given time. unless the order was to "fire for effect" in which you dont want to be any where with in a mile of the target

Another Veterans day has come and gone and I would like to announce that Mr. Charles will be back with us on line within the next couple of days.. We are glad that God smiled on him with the Battle that he had to fight himself. He won. The Enemy LOST.

ohh BTW.. Those "Tactical Nukes" was fairy tale talk. It is an OXImoron. There is no such thing as a Tactical Nuke and the only reason why the Russians used words like that was to fool the troops that would be using them. Tac. Nukes are like Safe Chemical weapons. There is not an such thing. They depended on the weather. If it was raining and storming that would be the best time to use a Tac Nuke because the fall out would fall faster with the rain, but on a clear day a Tactical Nuke was just as dangerous to the Soviets as the Americans as the wind would pick up the Beta Radiation and blow it right back in their faces. The only reason that they could get the troops to fire those things was that all information in the USSR about Nuclear Technology was considered TOP SECRET.. NEED TO KNOW ONLY.. So the Russian believed that the TAC Nukes would not hurt them.. Surprise... But the Generals knew it all.. And so they would have been sacraficing their own troops by using them and would usually just use the same stuff that the Americans were using just for self preservation.. But During war games they would show off their hot hardware.

Hey Striker.
Yeah, I know, our life expectancy was 24-72 hours too. Less in Fulda, more in Wildflecken. Our goal (combat engineers) was to race to the 1k zone, drop thousands of pounds of "cheese charges", dig a ditch, set up concertina wire to slow down the Russians, Eastern block, whatever. What would have saved our behinds were the A-10's & Cobras, as we've seen in Iraq, the enemy just gives up when they see them! Gotta go, look at the bottom, found a friend!!

Oh man, had to type this in as soon as I found it. The company I was in while I was in Fulda was one of 2 singular combat engineer companys CEC's in the army. They were always attached to the 11th cav but never really part of an engineer batallion. All the blue words are links to definitions: http://everything2.com/title/11th+Ar...valry+Regiment

Then:
Oh man!! Those jerks, no link nothing but one line, they sure blow thier own horn though, here's the Fulda Gap:
http://everything2.com/title/Fulda+gap
Used to wear this: Attachment 180180
The right top is the award for battle in the Ardanes forrest, the Fleur De lis is flower, lilly, in French (have one in the glass on our front doo) it was an award for the battle that liberated France, don't remember the arch, looks Korean, maybe Japanese. The little Castle is the Symbol of the Army Corps of Engineers, the only officers in the military allowed to wear different buttons on the dress uniform are Engineers. The 11th cavalry motto was allons, if you watch Dr. Who with David Tenant, he mis-pronounces it & says - AllonZ!

I really should e-mail the commander!

There's a mention here at the bottom: http://www.globalsecurity.org/milita.../11acr-rss.htm

Man, I'm steamed, you can't even find us in a search on the USAREUR site.

Here's what your dad was doing Striker: http://everything2.com/title/Tactical+nuclear+weapons

Here's where I was the second 3 year set: http://www.camp-wildflecken.de/us-army/index.htm

Oh man!! A guest book. I know one of these guys!!

One Edit: Look at this wiki entry, they were doing this in my second hitch: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fortifi..._German_border
The U.S. gave them millions of dollars to take out the anti-personnel mines & put in electronic stuff. Kept our high tech companies working!

Super Edit, first time ever: I don't believe this!! Guys, I knew Shaq when he was a kid!! His dad had the loudest voice on the mountain!!
Here's a link: http://www.camp-wildflecken.de/us-army/wta_shaq.html

Hey guys.. my blademasters come in tomorrow. It was mentioned to use a shroud. The setup I have planned is |case|pull|radiator|push|. So in this config where is the ideal place to put the shroud?

You don't even need a shroud. Setup your p/p the way you have described and you'll be fine.

Would using a shroud help? I have the 120 that was in the back of the case that I cut the wires on. Not much use anymore so I can gut it.

In a perfect ambient environment you'll get 1 ''maybe'' 2 degrees with the added clutter and hardware requirements to mount it. Not to mention the added noise of accelerating the air that will only get you the 1 or 2 degrees.

Hey. Thought I would share this with you all.
For the users of Google Chrome.
And firefox possibly.

There are extensions, that I had no clue existed until recently, that are very helpful.

The two I am talking about are adthwart. (blocks the ad on the top of this page even)
And flashblock. Which blocks flash players (annoying ads that use flash)

it will block megavideo etc but simply clicking on the flash object lets your run it.
there is also a whitelist for it too.

Great great extensions for chrome that save my laptop(2ghz celeron) a lot of processing power in webpages, and just blocks annoying ads and flashes.
Very very useful!
Give it a try!
