Don,
First I have to ask, is there a reason why the links in my last post here come up with an error message after being copied from another thread where the links (Refs) work fine? Did I do something wrong?
Anyway understand about the dates, it'll save me some work! However the pic of the ADF M1A1 PIM sitting inside a building seems well...a little depressing. ;) Was going to submit these also for consideration as replacement pic options for ADF UNITS 26, 88 & 89.

Pics:
Attachment 12530 Attachment 12531

Attachment 12532 Attachment 12533

Attachment 12534

This last was off a tank modeling site. The color scheme is the current one in use as the pictures show from late last year taken by the ADF.

A little photo analysis test...
Let's see who can first figure out what's different about these pictures but, yet the same. It might be in all the pictures or not!?!

Regards,
Pat

passing comment:

Firstly the pics are taken in QLD not NT, obvious in some respects, the ground and vegetation. Hence only one place, Shoalwater Bay.

From what I can see some/most have the red kangaroo on the side of the turret. But it looks like one doesn’t. Hard to tell.

Depending on the time frame some of the M1A1s did not have the disruptive pattern camouflage but still had the original sand type colour.

TDR...The work week is over with another successful qual (And the job security that comes with.) @ the range in maintaining my "expert" status with the "tools of the trade". The lack of proper sleep however over taxed my brain in the photo analysis challenge, my apologies. Understanding I have the advantage of the original pictures on my PC vs what I attached to the post, both left hand pics are the same tank as identified by the # located on the lower left side of the hull.

Don... Thanks about the reference/link issue just seems strange though. Also the ICON for the ADF M1A1 AIM SA looks really good to me anyway. Hope you'll use it. Also hope the pictures were of some use. Out of curiosity, does the size of the picture file I (Or anyone else.) download then post have any bearing on whether you can use them or not?

Also have recieved a couple of PMs, let's just leave at I'm really piss poor about checking that. So my apologies to the both of you. I will respond shortly.

Got curious about the AUSCAM scheme looks like JUN 2010 would make a good start date. The ref is from a defence newspaper dated 27 MAY 2010.

Finally to all you Dads out there where ever you might be, have a Happy Fathers Day!!!

The size of the photo does not matter though we don't need a 5 MB photo just to make a 160x80 LBM. Those ones you posted were fine and I've used one.

What I DON'T want are resized photos someone has "adjusted" to fit the 160x80 format. They are usually screwed up becasue they don't maintain the original aspect ratio and the photo looks squashed.

You don't do that so no worries

It is merely a technology demonstrator. Therefore its of absolutely no importance to the game, Until someone actually fields the thing.

Technically speaking it is in the game the PSO would lead directly to the LEOPARD 2A7+ about four years later, and is in the game as submitted ~three years ago now I believe. It's in this thread and the Patch Post one as well. I believe Oman(?) just bought some (~200 I think.) and the Saudi deal I think is on hold for now last I checked but is in my "tickler" to check back on. In this thread see Page 9/Post 84/Item A6. Look in German OOB for UNIT 267.

Well it's no secret that I like this site for 1) Articles direct from the sources (Like DEFPRO that I miss.) and 2) The somewhat "nasty habit" when I post something on equipment (Most recently concerning the BMP2/3 issues of a couple of weeks ago.) of updating their equipment data, how dare they when Don and others are looking in to verify my comments!?! So when I came across a basic "Top Ten" tanks list from them it's worth a look. Surprizes a couple, though more true of older tanks, speed is still a survival factor today so the surprizes in the Speed catagory where #2 OPLOT-M and #3 Z-99 but weight is a factor. The #1 LEO 2A7+ and #4 ABRAMS round out the top four in this catagory. Anyway it's light reading...
