  1. Guys..it's not a MRAP...stop calling it that. It's a JTLV - completely different than a MRAP. I can't count how many people keep saying its a MRAP it's driving me nuts.
  2. Is The 30 Mil BTR Overpowered Now?

    That's incorrect. The m4a1 is now standard issue for the US army, burst fire is being replaced and has been on m4 carbines for awile now.
  3. Release - Alpha 9.12

    Yes, but they would make sense in the game if the Humvees would be taken out and they have a model of them already. I'm essentially saying I'm not to torn up about the no Humvee thing. I just kinda think they are a pos, but that's my opinion lol.
  4. Release - Alpha 9.12

    Ohh wait, I thought they would be replacing the Humvee with the JTLV, not the MRAP.
  5. Release - Alpha 9.12

    The Oshkosh is not a MRAP as its a replacement for the Humvee and is taking up the same purpose only it does it 100 times better.
  6. Realistic weapon sound

    Another thread on this...Seriously? That's exactly how I feel...I always get into it with people on these threads because it's just not fair...but they keep making threads like this so I'm tired of trying lol.
  7. Hacking prevalence

    I remember actual hackers. After EAC was put in I've not seen one in a very very long time.
  8. Collimator in Russian Army?

    I don't mean this in a combative way but can you show me?
  9. Full Access to Optics on US Army vs Russia Maps

    That's not true. Optics are very expensive and low priority. Do you have a source for this?
  10. Here is my "proof." It's a nasty round and it will eventually be in every US army soldiers magazine. You can also google around and get real vets opinions on its performance. From what I've seen, those that use it love it. That yawing and fragmenting is what I was speaking about. Now imagine that hitting someone center mass? Those fragments and yawing? That gel block has no organs or obstructions like a person would. Now imagine those sharp metal fragments getting lodged in a lung. a gut, anything of importance. Anyways, I'm not trying to start the 7.62 vs 5.56 debate. All I'm trying to prove is that the 5.56 with modern development behind it is as equally destructive in it's wounding capability when you take into account it's an extremely friendly round to shoot.
  11. Yep, it's actually pretty amazing how much blood can help an investigation. The only thing that really shocked me...the blue stuff you see being sprayed on blood, makes it glow blue? It's called luminal and it's INSANELY expensive (I forgot to mention it's a kit, a mixture)...We never got to use it on mock crime scenes because it was something like 100 bucks for a single tiny bottle...now imagine having to spray that all over, and it only glows for around 5minutes before dissipating. I remember our instructor mentioning that "Dexter" is based on a real expert on blood stain pattern analysis. He really spearheaded its importance. The way the blood spatters or drips...it can tell you direction, force, the weapon used, distance...it's amazing.
  12. Collimator in Russian Army?

    The Devs have a Russian military advisor. Nothing is "biased" that's an argument used by either people unwilling to accept fact due to propaganda, or misinformation. From what I've observed with the invasion of Crimea optics on the 74m are few and far between.
  13. OK, a 7.62×39 is the round a 7.62 AK fires...the round the army is talking about is the 7.62×51...completely different rounds. Completely different purposes. If you take the time and it's a very experienced individual any round can be accurate on any platform. Yes, it can be accurate if your prone with a gun rest walking your shots in. But that's not what I imagine happens in combat. If you want proof that's up to you. I don't need to justify or prove anything. Google the ballistic characteristics of the round. The m855a1 for example already even has a high speed ballistic gel test done by a private party on YouTube. It shows exactly what yawning and fragmenting is. This is not a special round, it's been adopted by the US army as a replacement to the m855 for the standard grunt. I imagine it's deployment depends on how much of the m855 is in storage waiting to get used up.
  14. What do you guys think of the new sounds?

    They are excellent as always.
  15. I was an intern at a local PD and worked extensively in both shooting reconstruction which focuses heavily on ballistics and blood stain pattern analysis which also focuses on wound ballistics, specifically spatter patterns etc from small arms. I have examined countless cases dealing with firearms from suicides, homicides and officer-involved shootings. I've seen cases of individuals being shot with every caliber imaginable and nothing supports this theory on "bigger" means better when it comes to small arms. What I do know is when a 5.56 fragments let alone yaws in a human being, it's a hell of a lot nastier than a 7.62 cavity. Is the 7.62 deadly? Yes, absolutely, but it's an antique round that is fat, slow and has one admirable feature which is penetration. It's the exact reason why PD's and the FBI have gone back to the 9mm, advances in small arms munitions has made larger rounds pointless for general use as smaller rounds with less recoil yet the same damage potential are available. This includes the US army in the m855a1 program which specifically targetted issues at the original m855 green tip that was designed to penetrate soviet era flak jackets and steel helmets... NOT for it's ability to yaw. Countless people have done ballistic tests on the new round and it's easily the deadliest 5.56 being used in any army to date. So yes, please keep assuming bigger mean better. Maybe the bad guys will listen, a plus from where I'm standing. And yes, I own and have shot just as many firearms as yourself.
