So you've 3rd marked the vehicle and sold it? :trollface:

 

Nah. No reason to sell it. :P But I did bring the BL-10 into 9.20.

 

EDIT: I keep thinking I should go back to STO and play all the new stuff... and then I dont... and then I see stuff like this:

And I wind up thinking I should go back to STO and play the new stuff. Gotta give Cryptic credit, theyre packing the game with as many cast members as they can afford... I want I they have most of the TNG crew, most of the living TOS crew and several of the Voyager crew... Id love to see them get Picard, Riker, Janeway and B'Leanna... but atleast 2 of those would be bloody expensive.

The Wall Street Journal and Reuters are both reporting that a Grand Jury has been assembled by Special Prosecutor Mueller, and subpoenas are being issued, particularly in relation to the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian representatives in June 2016. This isn't really a shock, but I was expecting things to move a little more slowly.

 

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-40820863

 

One wonders who is talking to whom behind the scenes...the GOP congressional leadership seems to have had enough of this administration and I suspect that they're encouraging Mueller to step up the pace.

So, NSA McMaster has apparently cleared Susan Rice of any wrong doing in the 'unmasking' thing... which as led to far-right idiots like Sean Hannity calling for McMaster to be fired.

 

And speaking of McMaster, he appears to be winning the struggle against idiots like Bannon.

 

 

 

Hmm, Thanatos interests me enough that I'll probably end up pre-ordering the basic pack.

 

I suspect PGI is keeping the Fafnir back for the next round of new weapons/tech, which will probably be released in 1-2 years time. Eg, release it with the Improved Heavy Gauss Rifle.

 

 

Main issue with Fafnir is it requires crit spill over for its Heavy Gauss Rifles since it uses an XL 300.

The Senate blocked Trump from using "recess appointments" while they're out of town...

 

http://thehill.com/h...ents-over-break

 

And the Senator who officially made the procedural move was non other than Alaska's.    I find this very interesting after the Trump administration threatened Alaska's federal funding in an attempt to extort the Senators' votes on the "health care" legislation. 

 

Trump just doesn't know how to "do business" with people he can't bully and/or bribe, and this extends down to many of his "outsider" appointments. 

 

Meanwhile, bipartisan legislation was introduced in the Senate which would require a judicial review before Mueller could be fired... while there's no way Trump will sign it, it's a shot across the bow.

Is it just me, or is this month's daily missions all so grinding? 20,000 damage in a heavy every day, on top of damaging 20 with mediums, etc?!?!?!

 

Well, at least now I have a chance to get Heavy No. VI without paying anything.

Are you in need of a new weapon?  Consider the XR5 Tactical Assault Rock, now available from Amazon. :teethhappy:

The problem with a shot across the bow is the assumption that the other party will understand it as a threat.

Both proposals more or less say "If a special prosecutor is fired without just cause they can request a judicial review that must render a judgement within 14 days and if no just cause for termination is found the prosecutor will be re-instated with immediate effect." The proposals were submitted by Democrat and Republican sponsors (One D and one R co-sponsoring each proposal), and both proposals are basically what the internal guidelines of the Justice Department are if they go to a vote they'll probably pass. Given how thin skinned Trump is he'll definitely see it as the Senate thumbing their collective noses at him.

 

edit: Actually, there is a difference between the two proposals. This first proposal states that a special prosecutor can only be terminated for just cause after a judicial review, and the other is what is stated above, that a terminated special prosecutor can demand a judicial review to determine if they were terminated for just cause or not.

My argument is that this right would have been more entrenched before the corporate assault, had the judges picked after 1973 not been so... tilted on right to privacy by this issue.

 

To come back to this... the right to privacy being ignored, or treated as a hurdle to overcome for ideological reasons, isn't purely a right-wing shenanigan.  Consider what a robust, enshrined, and protected right to privacy would do to left-wing agenda items such as the ACA's individual mandate, or firearms registration?

Are these the TankRewards missions and if so what are the three tank rewards?  Any TOGs in there?

Not TankRewards. Basically a collection of missions towards some big reward. You have to do at least 5 times for each one.

 

There is also a big mission, 50,000 exp as top of your team, you get a month to do this and the prize is Heavy No. VI.

Either way, it would be a clear message to Trump... which his warped mind would mishear as "These people refuse to acknowledge you as The Man in Charge and offer you the respect and deference you are owed as a Smart Sexy Strong Winner".

No, they had to fix it on the spot. This was at the Tank Biathlon last year.

 

Sure it can. Running it does run the risk of having to replace more parts in the long run, but we've run both tanks and brads with a wheel which fell off. The Bradley we didn't even notice until we got back to base. One of the tanks, we noticed immediately, given it was the idler wheel's axle which snapped, and that really did bring the tank to a screeching halt. Which, when it happened in Iraq, was quite the emotional event to those of us inside the tank! Another time, it was the hub which broke, not the axle. So after the wheel fell off, the axle was rubbing along the track. The first thing that happened is that over time the center guides sawed off the axle (Quite a noise being made when it was happening), and then the swing arm just rubbed against the rubber on the inside of the track, causing no end of smoke and smell.

 

I just found the video for "I perform this way". That took force of will to watch, quite the assault upon my eyes.

Well, that's a battle tested and forged American firepower. Who knows how well the Chinese vehicle would fare in such a situation.

It's a torsion bar arm on an axle. 70-year-old technology. I think even the Chinese have probably figured out the things by now.

Hehe. Was being all 'MURICA over here.

 

But my first thought was definitely the same as yours. It will run but will break more things in the process. Also who knows how much redundancy was implemented into the design to allow the vehicle to perform well even with missing wheels. We'll never know since it was repaired straight away. Still, the track still manage to stay on so I would think the tank would still perform well enough.
