|20220924 16:11||Matt||Newsmax is reporting a possible coup in China. Or at least something going on.|
|20220924 12:31||badanov||Software has a steep learning curve just to do the stuff that I normally.|
That's assuming I can do even a small bit of the stuff you're speaking of.
|20220924 02:33||Dron||I would make small films if I were you, badanov. Completely dub the field chatter with snappy stuff and use cuts and music and blurs and blooms. That'll get even the attention deficited fortnite streamer crowd to watch.|
|20220924 02:27||Dron||If you paid you get more support in the form of monthly effect packs, new fonts, updates etc. And you don't have to scrounge around for some stolen effect pack on heavily viruses sites. 🙃 Whatever you need is on the server. I think. Also there's no tension about some little proxy server thingy running in the back doing Gawd knows what. You won't regret paying. All YouTube content folks have this.|
|20220924 00:53||badanov||Too late|
|20220924 00:41||Dron||I never pay for apps I won't be using commercially. I just buy windows licenses and that too grudgingly. And wondershare is Chinese. No shame in robbing them.|
|20220923 17:52||badanov||The film certainly is a lot crisper with Filmora.|
|20220923 17:50||Dron||Oh that old thing. I mean, I only remember an old one which came with XP.|
|20220923 17:35||badanov||I use Microsoft Movie Maker. Does everything I need it to do.|
|20220923 17:33||Dron||Filmora! I worked on a pirated copy, because it was just for one little thing. Then I uninstalled it. I don't know what the current version can do. Some YouTube gal recommended it for noobs.|
|20220923 17:27||Dron||I forget the name of this software. It was super easy to slow down a section, to cut your vid in clips, to add a score from any MP3. Add fades to the audio and video. And subtitles, arrows what have you.|
|20220923 10:22||badanov||I drove the M-60 with a 105mm main gun. I was too young and too dumb to appreciate it.|
|20220923 09:44||Dron||Big, hulking, rolling machines. A big 120 mm destroyer that'll compensate for any dick size in the world. What's not to love about tanks. I once smoked a reefer inside an old tank that's supposed to be haunted, waiting for the ghost to show up. It's pretty cramped in there.|
|20220923 09:36||Dron||Long periods of inactivity between frantic you-won't-see-home-again moments. Story of my life. Oh, I've rode in the back of trucks. In the Thar desert no less. 🦂|
A full two days of just getting there and you don't wanna get in again after the op. The wuss gummint here wouldn't risk choppers be seen so close to the paki borders.
Our 18 Mech Inf, once assisted us in interdiction of bad guys along our western borders. Saw what a tracked CMT actually does to enemies and just loved it.
|20220923 09:03||badanov||I think I will include a version of that former in my video descriptions.|
|20220923 09:00||badanov||That is pretty close. I found in the army that if I took off my boots and socks inside the sleeping bag in the field when it is cold, they would be warm if I kept the by my feet.|
My tank command/platoon sergeant didn't see it that way. One time he got so mad at me taking time in getting up, he grabbed the sleeping bag and shook me out onto the ground.
Oh well. At least the socks were warm when I put them on.
|20220923 08:56||badanov||I know nothing about filmmaking. I thought that making the film a continuous, contiguous film was better than jumping around. I don't want to confuse the viewer, but I do want to encourage a potential Arma 3 player he can do better than what the film conveys.|
Meeting engagements such as this most recent film includes long periods of inactivity, and often a great deal of the actual action is taking place elsewhere. Command squad takes the middle, where enemy infantry is most likely to converge. (This is, after all, at its base, a first person shooter) A properly set line against an enemy's line of march could potentially result in the advancing enemy being caught in a cross fire by all three rifle squads as they approach the objective. I mess that part up, by randomizing where the advancing enemy infantry will wind up: anywhere within a 300 meter radius of the objective.
This is an armored battle, tank versus tank. Neither side have sufficient forces to cover the entire area, so the task force has to deploy in such a way it can catch the enemy before he filters in behind the line. When the enemy does that, things can crater for the Good Guys in a helluva hurry.
Sometimes the Good Guys will be able to intercept the enemy, but not always. To me, that's the nature of warfare, especially mobile warfare. Some days you get the bear, some days he gets you. You do the most you can without endangering the task force and still accomplish the mission. And with the preferred outcome of surviving the battle.
It is as close I can get to Admiral Chester Nimitz's principle of calculated risk, to prevail operationally, as I can.
As far as the approach marches are concerned. That is unavoidable. Some of these maps are 20 kms square, and the objective can be as far away as seven or eight kilometers. Some approach marches can take upwards of 40 minutes. The forward zone, a marshaling point, as it were, is far away from where the the enemy is.
In light infantry scenarios, approach marches can take an hour. It is a mundane task to drive to a battle in convoy. In mobile meeting engagements there is the possibility the enemy will send screening forces ahead to locate and harass friendly forces. Sometimes they will and sometimes the task force will run into them on the march back.
Sorry about this shotgun way of explanation.
|20220923 06:16||Dron||Thanks for the vids, badanov. I just enjoy the sounds of simulated war. And it's more fun than the faked tactical victories being televised in the news these days.🙃 Here's Ukraine firing at Russian interlopers, here's Donbas people hugging Azov troops, here's Putin crying like a baby!|
|20220923 06:10||Dron||Grunts bitching in back. |
"You know what the plan is?"
"I think it's to just get there."
"I know right... giggle..."
After a few minutes of stop and go.
"Hey, driver could you get us anywhere there's a fight any time soon?"
"Shut yer trap, Jojo."
"Oh look! Banger is takin' a detour! Whoa! Why can't we go with him?"
"Driver, you have it floored, right?"
Driver applies brakes.
"Okay, Jojo. Out! Get out! You'll continue on foot from here!"
"Yeah, Jojo. Go and recon on foot while we go in the vehicle."
|20220923 06:05||Dron||Y'know you could use some jump cuts, slow mo and ... music. Like the tank comes in seen from a low angle and slow mo hits. Then it speeds up again.|
These guys driving to the engagement area could be dubbed.

|20220921 14:31||Dron||Hmmm... commendable. Your game is a grownup's game, sir. Salute. |
I like the ones where I have god like power and zero responsibility. A 2-3 hr lapse into delinquency lying on the floor and mashing the gamepad.
|20220921 13:55||badanov||I have a system when it comes to these games:|
If I am wining more than half the time, I am doing it wrong.
|20220921 11:16||Dron||Heh heh. Can't help being silly. I hope the Russians have the good sense to stand down and insist they be allowed to leave with what dignity they have left. 😁|
Yeah They did fire around 80+ shots to get nearer and nearer the 🎯. As scfi says it's more of an exercise in guncraft and shooting than display of warfighter prowess.
|20220921 10:58||badanov||Early Wednesday morning aviation overflights in Chernarus reported an enemy troops build up 2.5 kms northeast of Sosnovka at Dichina, including a fortified position. Brigade command issued the order for a new task force to attack and to clear the troop concentration.|
The task force commander launched two armor probes using two BRDM scout cars, inflicting damage on at least two technicals. Command squad and 2nd squad then advanced quickly clearing a path onto the hill Veresnik.
Before the battle, a vehicle could be seen burning in the distance. It was reported through electronic means that the separatist forces there had commandeered a bus and executed all the civilian passengers.
Once the hill and the fortified position were clear, the commander located the mass execution site and took photos.
When the commander returned to the hill, the enemy launched a counterattack with Russian local levies, and Spanish and Serb speaking militia, wiping out command squad.
3rd squad commander took command of the operation, clearing the remaining enemy from the hill. 2nd squad was nearly wiped out by enemy counterattacks and vehicle reinforcements. The order to retreat was issued, and the task force returned to base.
|20220921 08:50||badanov||CDF forces are going out again.|
|20220921 08:29||badanov||Pretty good, Dron.|
|20220921 08:25||badanov||Shooting at 4.4 miles presents problem of target discrimination. |
Great. You can hit a target at that range at some point, after several shots.
But not even heavy armor has the range with their main guns primarily because of target discrimination.
As an application, sniping at an opponent is hard not because of the range, but because no target in combat stands still long enough for the slug to arrive on time and on target.
|20220921 08:19||badanov||If 2nd battalion had tanks, the outcome could have been different. As it is, the only armor they had for this operation was a pair of BRDM scout cars borrowed from the brigade recon company.|
The only support they had aside from the SU-25 ground interdiction fighter, was counterbattery and target acquisition units on the southern coast.
I have a tendency to press too hard, too fast. The final approach for command squad was across an open field, beyond which the town was in defilade, without careful consideration of what would happen when topping the defilade.
Pressing 2nd squad across an open field without realizing they were up against vehicle with an M-2 heavy machine gun was the other mistake.
|20220921 01:44||Dron||For me just their building the perfect rifle was an adventure worthy of the effort. And y'all shall need shooters with such god-like range, when the leftist cavalries encamp about anyway.|
|20220921 01:24||SCFI||Reading about the 4.4 miles shot at https://rantburg.com/poparticle.php?D=09/20/2022&SO=&HC=3&ID=644525.|
I note that many of the comments asked "what's the point" and "what use is this?"
I suspect the commenters missed the point, it's information that's gleaned from this that's valuable. Among other things, the information will help improve the accuracy of shorter shoots, even as little as 500 feet or less. The information is valuable and cam be used elsewhere.
It's like that old saying, "some learn by reading, some learn by observation, but there's always a few that just have to pee on the electric fence themselves!"
Which one are you?.
|20220921 01:10||Dron||BBC - inshallah the news|
War correspondents in Sosnovka report a grim wipeout of Chernarussian forces by dug-in pro-Russian forces in an operation. It is being reported by the military that the occupying force may be Russian Special Forces. However, some experts differ, insisting that they are mercenary specialists or separatists.
In Russian media, the narrative for hours has been about ridding Sosnovka, a historic part of the Murmask Oblast, of invading Chernarussian forces. Until they were informed that the site of conflict is actually a village of the same name in Chernarus. Moscow went silent after that.
'Thugs! They're all thugs!' Shouts Nina Dobrev, an elderly teacher sitting in the rubble of what was once the local school.
'Drove their stupid tank right through my classroom! What education can we give our children with these people fighting all the time? Thugs! Both of them! Treating life like a video game!'
A military analyst from Moscow, Olgev Rhinoplastov claims the Chernarus forces may be Nazis.
'Have you seen their driving skills? It's like they drive BMWs when not driving tanks!'
However, UK intelligence says that ridiculous as it may be, it may very well snowball into a repeat of the September Crisis of 2009 when Chernarus and Pro-Russian forces clashed in towns and villages for months, leaving bodies and dead cattle and much pollution in the air.
'That thing too began from just such bloody foolery.' Says the un-named UK intelligence officer, tapping his pipe on his desk.
'It is another giant Russian mistake. The idiot interior ministry goons were ordered to Sonovska in Murmask to quell some local nonsense. They drove all the way into Chernarus, past Sosnovy to a little hamlet a few kilometres down from Zelenogorsk! Fools!'
In Russia, President Putin has dismissed the interior minister, and is negotiating a purchase of the latest navigation and GPS equipment from Israel.
|20220920 20:27||badanov||On Monday night, task force from 2nd Bn Chernarus 4th Separate Light Mountain Rifle Brigade was ordered to conduct an attack and clear operation in Sosnovka in Chernarus.|
The short version is that the task force ran into a buzz saw, with command squad and 2nd squad being wiped out.
Command squad lost two because of enemy artillery fire, and more than half of its force after a gunfight with Russian interior ministry special forces troops.
2nd squad ran into a heavy machine gun technical. Scout 2 BRDM scout car suffered a crew hit and was ordered to bail out, and join 3nd squad as infantry.
During the operation, Bn command ordered a new attack on enemy troops at a nearby location, but instead the commander requested and received orders to retreat back to base.
|20220919 04:38||Dron||Congratulations, Pan. I've always admired the kind of people that have a desire to serve human life. To... mend people. Not like some of us destructive freaks. Godspeed to your kid.|
|20220918 20:22||badanov||A task force from 3rd Bn Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade were ordered to Wallbeck in Werferlingen with orders to provide cover for the evacuation of friendly forces stranded there.|
In relief operations such as this speed is the most important factor, so one BRDM scout car and two tanks quickly arrived at the town first, followed by the three motorized rifle squads. Scout 1 and Tank 1 were both sent forward, with Tank 2 held back.
During the road march, the two relieved rifle squads were ordered to the southern edge of town as two transport trucks arrived. The rifle squads, due to the heavy fire from enemy forces, were forced to cross the river to reach their transports.
Command squad crossed the river into town at the southern bridge, dismounted, then proceeded north to make contact with enemy forces. Command squad fought an engagement with Wagner military contractors, and later with Serb speaking militia.
Enemy infantry also attacked 2nd squad, destroying it with an RPG shot, and later Tank 1, also destroying it. Two BRDMs crossed the northern bridge, the first eliminating half of command squad, and the second only minutes later, wiping out command squad.
The evacuation of friendly forces failed. The commander should have moved to secure the northern bridge as well as the southern bridge, preventing the BRDMs from entering town. Losses still would have been high, but command squad would have survived.
Enemy losses were mild with the loss of two BRDM scout cars and one BTR-80A. A film will be available soon.
|20220918 16:45||Dale||Good luck there for your son 49. Should he work in ER make sure there are security. The meth heads coming down many of the times are violent.|

|20220918 10:31||badanov||Last Friday, an emergency task force assembled from 4th Bn, Chernarus 7th Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to Damyanovo in Leskovets with the task for intercepting an enemy force moving to take the town.|
An infantry attack on the town already was in progress when the task force's scout cars arrived, Also enemy technicals were attempting to enter town from the north.
The task force was deployed in an outer arc facing north with all tanks on the northern face of the arc.
Command squad took the brunt of the initial infantry attacks, including from Russian interior ministry special forces, Russian speaking militia, and from Wagner military contractors.
The separatists also attacked twice using Wagner operated MI-8 gunships both of which were shot down before they could do any damage.
When the order arrived to retreat, the task force retreated in poor order suffering casualties from infiltrating special forces.
Losses were high. Command squad lost five, while 2nd squad lost four. Reinforcing Motorized Rifle Squad 1 was used to round out losses by command squad.
Enemy losses were very heavy. Field counts included four technicals, five BRDM scout cars, two BTR-80As and one T-55 tank.

The concept I was talking about, applied to coding itself. Fascinates me.
|20220915 10:16||badanov||Perl, with which I am familiar, does make provisions for loops and subroutines, but often they involve reading external files, especially if conditions change or must change.|
The inclusion of databases has made it and a number of other languages much more flexible eliminating the need for loops and subroutines.
|20220915 10:06||Dron||It is all fascinating. I always wanted to build Skynet but was never good with loops and variables and libraries. 🤖|
|20220915 10:05||Dron||My friend is working at this thing called Dall-E in 'cisco. They are teaching AI to create art by using what they call neurons (universally recognised images and reference packets as I understand) and analysing language.|
|20220915 09:17||badanov||Their scripting language to me is so arcane, I can't make heads or tails of it.|
But I did learn their shell language which I use about 99 percent of the time.
|20220915 08:40||Dron||And kudos to those ARMA guys who've made it so easy with their scripting support or what have you.|
|20220915 08:39||Dron||Computed critters. Such simple stupid things. Yet sometimes they can almost elicit a reaction from us like only a person can.|
|20220915 08:36||Dron||Fascinating. I always find it interesting how NPCs and such simulacra behaves. If you ever want to read a hard sci-fi brain twister, badanov, do check out The Flicker Men by Ted Kosmatka.|
|20220915 08:03||badanov||No. |
I wrote a "stop" command inside the bots where they stay unless certain conditions are met.
When the player (or in the case of a multiplayer environment, a designated player) comes within a one meter radius of the civilian, the stop command becomes go and the bot can move, and the blindfold is removed. The bot then can be escorted to safety, which in the Livonia mission, safety was the BRDM scout car.
In this case I neglected to include the stop command in the other female bot, so, fearing for her life when the lead is flying, she ran off.
|20220915 05:26||Dron||Bots can do that? Disappear off the map? Hide somewhere? That's good AI or a glitch?|
|20220914 18:53||badanov||What actually happened was the other female bot ran off for reasons unknown.|
Makes a good story though.
|20220914 18:40||Dale||About four days in talks in DC. CSX strike highly likely.

Congress can order CSX back to work but they are said to be reluctant to do so. 2 billion a day losses.

Nada Mamula was a renowned Serbian singer who sang fir Radio Sarajevo. Sometime in 2001 she faked her death and joined a criminal outfit that does regime change for hire. She finally met her end in an operation by Chernarus armed forces. She was 80, in good health and capable of leading armed battalions.
|20220914 12:33||Dron||Dragon Bruinsma in jollier times. |
|20220914 11:53||Dron||The Radacz mayor sounds like Katie Hill.|
|20220914 04:42||badanov||On September 13th, a light infantry task force was ordered to Radacz in Livonia after an armed separatist force entered town two days before.|
Leading that attack were two criminal operatives, Dragon Bruinsma and Nada Mamula, who immediately began to conduct political arrests, among them the town mayor, her husband and her girlfriend.
Battalion recon staff, through email, direct texts and electronic intercepts managed to locate where the two were being held. Operations staff also designated the two criminal operatives for elimination.
The tactical plan called for the task force, one scout car, two tanks and three light rifle squads, to attack from the southeast on a broad front. The tanks and the scout car would advance first, followed by the infantry.
Command squad ran into a buzz saw, against local levies and against French speaking operators. They took heavy casualties, enough to stop their advance into town. Command squad relinquished overall command to 2nd squad, then retreated back to south of town
2nd squad closed to the location of the two operatives, finding Dragon Bruinsma, but finding Nada Mamula missing. As 2nd squad commander was heading back, he received a report on the location of an armed civilian female.
Commander then went to the location, eliminated Nada Mamula, then seized documents and a cell phone from her person. It appeared that Nada Mamula ran out of ammunition and her security detail was killed defending her.
When the commander released the prisoners, he found only the mayor's husband and the mayor's girlfriend. He was unable to find the mayor. The surviving prisoners were placed aboard a BRDM scout car and driven back to base.
Casualties for the operation were high, with command squad losing six, 2nd squad losing three and 3rd squad losing four. The attack operation was considered a success.
|20220914 04:19||badanov||On September 11th, 2022, Chernarus 10th Tank Brigade operations staff issues a warning order to 1st Bn about separatist movements towards Batensen in Rosche.|
In its initial contact at Batensen, the scout car section of the assembled task force was ambushed by an enemy BTR-80A, which was subsequently destroyed by the time the task force tanks closed to town. One scout car was destroyed in the initial contact.
The task force deployed in town in a fire sack pointing north. The enemy attacked with light armor and with a Wagner operated MI-8 gunship, which was shot down by Tank 2. There were casualties.
Brigade command cancelled the operation, ordering the task force further north towards an open field. Despite its coverage, the task force let two tanks through its line which eventually destroyed Reinforcing Rifle Squad 1. Several tank vs tank battles took place as well.
In the new objective, command squad was hit particularly hard forcing command squad back into town. Commander also ordered the task force to retreat back as well. By the time the retreat order came through, the task force was back at the original objective.
Losses were light. Command squad lost five. No vehicles were destroyed, although Tank 2 was damaged and field repaired before withdrawing south.
Enemy losses were high with at least three BRDM scout cars, two BMPs and three tanks, one of them a T-55. Brigade recon staff does not expect the separatists to attack again in the near future.
A film will be available soon.

|20220913 11:56||49 Pan||Deacon, Your rant is exceptional. When the shots first came out we did a bunch of research on it. I could not get to why the RNA shots had been sitting without approvals for so long. The spin that it was almost ready was a lie. They knew of the protein spikes. When the side effects were talked about we got a lot of flack, but now we are seeing it. I have to assume the USG knew of these side effects and took them as acceptable risks for the population. Otherwise they would not have indemnified the manufacturers from legal actions. Now we have a long list of side effects that are either short term, showing within the first month, and longer term ones, like your living through. The short term ones we are pretty familiar with, myocarditis, micro blood clots, and some others. The longer term ones are starting to show, long blood clots, Sudden adult deaths, Herpes and shingles. They are looking at all Viruses for spikes, like polio and others. This is going to be a very interesting time in vaccine cause and effects.|

Some enemy forces entered town before CDF forces arrived, delaying defense of the town. During room clearing operations, new orders were transmitted ordering the task force one kilometer north to Molbath.
Contact began immediately with the loss of the task force's two scout cars. 2nd squad's BTR was damaged as well, and abandoned.
In Molbath, the three tanks were swamped with enemy armor. The task force lost all its heavy armor. The total loss for the task forces was six vehicles out of nine.
The losses were so heavy and the need to retreat back to Schlieckau so urgent, command was unable to assess enemy losses, but they had to be heavy, judging by the sheer amount of gunfire by the tanks' main guns.
A video is available.

|20220909 13:22||Deacon Blues||I've been fighting shingles for 10 weeks. Case Study: mRNA-Generated Spike Proteins Found In Shingles Lesions 3 Months After Vaccination. I had the Moderna vaccine. Pfizer’s and Moderna’s mRNA vaccines make spike proteins. The body will see those spike proteins as foreign and mount an immune response. That immune response is subsequently enlisted if the body ever meets the spike protein on the actual Sars-CoV-2 virus.|
mRNA is short for messenger RiboNucleic Acid. It is a single-stranded molecule of RNA. It is transcribed from a DNA template. The role of mRNA is to make proteins:
The role of mRNA is to carry protein information from the DNA in a cell’s nucleus to the cell’s cytoplasm (watery interior), where the protein-making machinery reads the mRNA sequence and translates each three-base codon into its corresponding amino acid in a growing protein chain.
Pfizer’s and Moderna’s mRNA vaccines make spike proteins. The body will see those spike proteins as foreign and mount an immune response. That immune response is subsequently enlisted if the body ever meets the spike protein on the actual Sars-CoV-2 virus.
For some reason (see below*) the vaccinated person’s body keeps producing spike protein long after it’s necessary. That may be a problem because scientists are finding the spike protein itself can be toxic. Here’s a case where the spike protein was found in shingles lesions months after vaccination.
Since the campaign of vaccination against COVID-19 was started, a wide variety of cutaneous adverse effects after vaccination has been documented worldwide. Varicella zoster virus (VZV) reactivation was reportedly the most frequent cutaneous reaction in men after administration of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, especially BNT162b2.…
A patient, who had persistent skin lesions after BNT162b2 vaccination for such a long duration over 3 months, was investigated for VZV virus and any involvement of vaccine-derived spike protein.…
The diagnosis of VZV infection was made for these lesions using PCR analyses and immunohistochemistry. Strikingly, the vaccine-encoded spike protein of the COVID-19 virus was expressed in the vesicular keratinocytes and endothelial cells in the dermis.
Endothelial cells are blood-vessel-lining cells. What is the spike protein doing in blood vessels and skin, far from the injection site, 3 months later? (Indeed, this man suffered from vasculitis or inflamed blood vessels also.) The CDC assured us that the body gets rid of the mRNA in a few days and the spike in a few weeks.
Also curious is why anyone would experience a reactivation of herpes zoster or shingles after a vaccine:
VZV reactivation frequently arises under immune-exhaustion, such as aging, or immunocompromised conditions caused by immunosuppressive drugs, HIV infection, or malignancies.
Does the vaccine suppress the immune response? Yes, if this study is anything to go by:
Innate immune suppression by SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccinations: The role of G-quadruplexes, exosomes, and MicroRNAs, Food and Chemical Toxicology, June 2022
The authors of this shingles study suggest that the spike protein itself may be responsible for immunosuppression:
The SP [spike protein] could be the culprit for immunosuppression that allowed VZV reactivation and its persistence, as well as skin vasculopathy and thrombosis.
By the way, this was a Japanese study. Physicians in this country don’t as a rule study or discuss the effects of the covid vaccine (or at least don’t let on). They risk losing their medical licenses if they do.
No one knows how long the body will continue manufacturing spike protein from the injected mRNA. This man may be dealing with these painful lesions for an indefinite amount of time.
Shingles is just one side effect of the mRNA vaccines. Effects differ depending upon where the mRNA travels, where the spike protein travels. (We were told it didn’t travel.) Skin cells regenerate, fortunately. Cardiac cells not so much. I feel for the young people who are experiencing heart inflammation (myocarditis) from the vaccine. That will be an injury that will follow them into adulthood.
Evidence suggests Ivermectin and Hydrochloroquine prevent the spike proteins from attaching to the ACT2 receptors. That is why the are effective against the covid virus.

Be interesting to explain, in the midst of a firefight, where every shooter has a machine gun, and where the 10 seconds it took to take the phone from the dead operative is an eternity, how the late commander had time to do anything, but pack his shit up and continue the operation.
|20220907 03:30||Dron||The Daily Nail : Where America gets its coffin hammered.|
A whistleblower in the Chernarus infantry has accused a now deceased unit commander of doing much more than stripping Usnija Redzepova's body.
"Bad deeds were done," says the unnamed source with a strange leer.
"It wasn't just about the documents. He went at her like the American G-Men in Melania Trump's closet. Unfortunately, before I could complain, the commander had been killed by some tortilla eaters with guns."
Senior brass in Chernarus have been sorely displeased with the performance and cohesion of their squads for some time. An investigation is being ordered into the recurring losses.
|20220906 21:36||badanov||A task force from 1st Bn, Chernarus 4th Separate Light Mountain Rifle Brigade was ordered to make a nocturnal attack on a separatist position at The Factory in Chernarus Monday night.|
Recon overflights and electronic intercepts indicated that the separatist force had brought a Russian speaking private contractor team with them. This was a clear indication the separatists were planning to use them to do their dirty work.
The tactical plan called for 3rd squad, with support from the scout cars, to attack from the northwest, with their objective being eliminating the contractor group, while command squad and 2nd squad attacked from the south east.
Shortly after the enemy launched an artillery attack, the 1st Army Corps target acquisition and counterbattery battery responded to the artillery attack, ending the enemy artillery attack.
The first to breach the enemy's defensive perimeter was command squad, followed by 2nd squad. The rifle fire exchange was very intense as CDF troops methodically cleared the compound.
The commander located Usnija Redzepova, second in command of Matija Depreradovich, stripping her dead body of documents and her cell phone. The commander could not located Depreradovich. Subsequent to this the commander was killed in a firefight with Spanish speaking militia.
2nd squad leader took over as second in overall command, and completed the operation of clearing the compound of enemy forces. Two separate enemy counter attacks took place, one at the gate of the Factory and one north. Both were defeated.
The task force retreated in good order when the retreat order came down. Casualties for this type of operation were moderate, with command squad losing four, 2nd squad losing five and 3rd squad losing four.
Only one of the two scout cars made it to the area of operation, eventually losing the vehicle commander. Air Support 1 lost its gunner and returned to Balota.

Also I took on the role as a NATO artillery commander, a role I enjoyed very much.
The players were young and multinational (~ early 30s). One trio was from Sweden. (Of all places) The Swedes played the USMC.
They/we were there to fuck up the PLA, same as me. We had a great time being totally immersed in the strategy and tactics, and the gameplay, which is the Holy Grail of military computer gaming.
I had to quit because the server was allowing the PLA to do things NATO wasn't allowed.

I am on Steam, with a name of GRU, the acronym of the Russian military intelligence agency. It has been my email name for as long as I can remember.
Early one morning a (I assume) young man in Niger, of all places, whose name is Totally Communist messaged me on the Steam messenger app:
TC: (In Russian) Are you Russian?
Me: (In English) No
Me: I know bit of Russian language, but ethnically, I am not Russian.
TC: Western spy!
TC: Give me American's nuke codes!
That exchange, which took place last week totally made my day. Better than a big breakfast, better than sex.
