You're grown ups, I probably don't need to tell you what is happening before your eyes, do I?

Oh, that's a training flight about to disappear in the Bermuda Triangle!  O0

Those are SBDs. The flight that disappeared in the Triangle (Flight 19) was comprised of TBM Avengers (and also a Martin flying boat that went to look for them).

Thank you boys  :hug:
Hot damn, visiting the parents in the French countryside - our prehistoric DSL with its ludicrous upload limit is killing me... :pullhair:
Wanted to post a few GIFs, but it might need to wait for me to catch a train to a more connected place first, I am afraid  :'(

Still, DSL was a revelation of bounties after years of dialup in the 90's.

 The Devastator has never seen so much love!  ;)  Too bad they weren't a little better at planting their seed.  ;D That's in regard to what I saw at simhq, are those in this thread yet?  I don't always log in and you can't see the images here if you don't.  Ah, never mind, they are here.  :bd:

I did like the film Midway well enough; but I meant I approve of the snapshots.  O0

As usual.  :smitten:
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

No worries em2, I pretty much centralize everything in this topic :)
Then I post them elsewhere. You won't miss much in here, but the best way is still to follow us on FB or Twitter still (a few bonuses here and there!).

At any rate, here's a homecoming for our torpedoing heroes. A scene seen none too often with these Midway Camos  :-[
Rest well, VT heroes!

A small cookie before bed. We're putting together a small dev update reel for the end of the month. In the meantime, watch them angry birds roam around the mountains of Guadalcanal, looking for a prey... And flying in formation (which was, arguably, the actual challenge in this exercise).

They fly kind of like me trying to keep formation! -- except a little better than me.  :crazy2:

Oh well some of them had a tough time climbing up the steep slopes of SOPAC mountains. You see, lugging a 1-ton fish under your belly ain't so much fun when you are a guy that big with an engine so small  #:-)

Fully understandable!

I'd rather have realistic formation attempts that sometimes fail due to environmental problems and simulated operator error, than robo-formations rubber-banding along.

So alles klar! -- wait, wrong team.

Thank you for your support Jason :notworthy:

Here is a new small sequence illustrating our Dive Bomber AI in action. Videos never hurt (well, except when you're Hiryu, that is).
