Welcome, are they making you do the office coffee runs or taking daily lunch menus? ...LOL

Fortunately we're working from home for the forseeable future, so no lunch and coffee runs....yet ;)

Hello everyone!

I'm Patrick AKA StabbyMcKill and I'll be joining you all here on the forums as the community team's fresh mea- I mean, Intern! 

 

Like a lot of you, I started playing the game a few years ago because of my lifelong passion for military history and armored fighting vehicles. I don't consider myself a competitive player by a longshot as I buy vehicles because of my historical interest more than anything else, that being said I am actually making an attempt to find my way out of tomatoville and get better at the game overall. 

 

Where are you from?
I am a military brat so I lived all over the world growing up, but Austin, Texas is home.

 

What’s your favorite tank?
Panther family, Ausf.D-G, Bergepanther, Jagdpanther and all the developmental prototypes. I have had a love affair with the vehicle since I was little that carried on into my WW2 reenacting, model building teen and adult years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Little me at the Imperial War Museum, London circa 1996 and the start of a lifelong love affair. 

 

 

Favorite video game?

Rough question to be honest. I've been essentially an exclusively PC gamer all my life and some of my all time favorites (irrespective of genre) include: Red Orchestra, Doom (all of them honestly), Close Combat series, Fallout, Mechwarrior (all of them), Wasteland, S.T.A.L.K.E.R, Battlefield 2, Quake III Arena, Call of Duty 4, and more. 

 

 

Okay, so what are you playing right now?

I play a lot of Flight Sim X, X-plane and recently Flight Sim 2020 to stay fresh on instrument flying, procedures etc. as I am a private pilot (finishing my Instrument and going on to my commercial hopefully next year). For fun apart from WoT lately I've been playing a bunch of Rising Storm 2, Homeworld Remastered, and DCS.

  

Pineapple on Pizza?

Someone needs to make it illegal. Sorry not sorry.

 

Hobbies?
In addition to gaming, flying and military history related activities, I am an avid tabletop wargamer and miniatures painter (Warhammer 40k specifically), I have a passion for cars and bikes, collect firearms, play airsoft and am a burgeoning competitive shooter. Relatively an open book so feel free to ask away.

 

 

Platoon?
Any time! I am fairly alone in terms of people to play with apart from co-workers as most of my gaming group has moved on to other things, but I am always more than happy to play with you fine people. 

welcome i give you 8 months before you quit or get tossed for stepping on the wrong clans toes but best of luck to you.

my favorite place to be in my favorite airplane. This is N18LW, one of my school's 172Rs. I learned to fly in this airplane and it's still my favorite rental. 

 



Also very fond of our 172R G1000 N6048Z.

Nice 172, Stabby.  The Cessna 172 series planes are solid, with a lot of history. My first lessons were in 1968 using Cessna 150s.

 

Here's a photo of the plane I was flying when I retired about 9 years ago.

 

 

Max Air used the planes I flew for them for charters and Hajj flying mainly.

 

They had 5 747-300 planes bought from Japan Airlines (JAL), and some -400s I didn't fly.

 

The ones I flew had 543 total seats onboard.

 

They were beautifully maintained and refurbished. By far the best 747s I flew for anyone (I flew a lot of fairly rough freighters for Tradewinds, Star Air, Midex).

 

I hope you get whatever it is you want from your flying... it's a wonderful hobby, sport, career.

 

I am glad I retired before the Chinese Flu messed up travel so badly. Airlines are a mess right now, of course.

Stabby --where were u posted as a "Brat" -- I was in HS in Paris and Stuttgart (on the post where Rommel did some early tank training prior to the war) no Panther tanks -- but a couple of busted up PZ IVs that were in the tank sheds when WWII ended...
