Re: Best post WWII Military Films

'The Wild Geese' (1978) Actor Ian Yule was actually a former soldier and served under Major Mike Hoare in the Congo. Actually a pretty good film on the whole and filmed mainly in South Africa.

Re: winSPMBT V11 upgrade for 2017

Most of the MBT games I play are around 2020-25. Great having the Armata in, I can use it or not.

I really like this game, just the not knowing what lies ahead makes it better than 90% of others....

Re: winSPMBT V11 upgrade for 2017

They are, mostly, a Parachute regiment unit, but bear in mind they use the L119A2 Colt Canada 5.56mm Assault Rifle and not the L85A2 SA80.
