Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

From our reporter in the field:

The country redland has 3 days ago invaded germany.
Their target, the harbors of Bremen and Hamburg.
Although there was firerce resistance by the German army, a small spearhead from Redland managed to breakthrough their lines and is now advacing towards Rotterdam.
Most of the Dutch army units are figthing abroad in Afghanistan and Bosnia.
So the army had to call up its reserve force.
Loyal, fanatic but badly trained for armored infantry warfare(with a few exceptions to the rules)

First team to arrive at the base after call up of reserves.


New equipment, Panzerfaust 3
These men and women proved to be tough opponents allthough they lacked skills, but they were lead by experienced cadets of the infantryschool.

Our groupcommander
The enemy was assaulted and halted several times and eventually they managed to drive back Redforces elite airmobile troops.

Dressing up for war, adjust your make up Smiley
Preparations for the last attack to drive back the elite redlands paras.
The vehicles received an appropriate camoudesign to celebrate this.

Leave it to the Dutch to dress their AFV as a parade float to cause the OPFOR to relax their guard.

LOL,

The actual reason was of a different kind.
We did the last mounted assault for this school with the YPR.
Next year they start working with the new CV 90/35  iconclap

For our members that do not have cable, reduced photo file sizes here (Before Average 300kb, Now Average: 55kb), in total deleted 1.6MB dor just one post...

NOTE: Reducing photos physical size via web (as we do here in this forum to limit witdth to 700 px) does *not* reduce file size if your original photo e.g. had 1000*600 px with a size of 400kb!

Please, optimize pictures before uploading, both by physical size (680*400 is our standard size for people with 800*600 monitor resolution, and there are many: We have Mobile Phones readers!) but also for file size: Use online optimizers: http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/wat-board-technical-info/wow-to-optimize-photos-before-upload/

Please think about forum members that are not as privileged as we cable guys, from Asia, Africa, on Mobiles or small NetTops!
