Lost subs from the WW I recently found

Akula (Shark) a pioneering Russian sub built before WW I under the Tsar and lost on a combat cruise in the Baltic Sea in 1915, cause unknown, has now been found. Am sure we have some sub buffs out there.

And another one: A sunken WWII-era Japanese 'mega sub' has been found near Hawaii

The UK sends HMS Dragon, a Type 45 destroyer, to the Falkland Islands after a deal to lease 12 super sonic all-weather fighter bombers to Argentina. If Argentina invades, we can blow them out the sky

A Russian bomber flies over the English channel very close to Britain airspace with a nuclear missile that is specifically designed to hunt and kill Trident submarines. Putin is just getting too cocky now. It had to be escorted by Eurofighter Typhoons

NATO will create C&C centres in the Baltics and Eastern Europe in response to Russian actions

http://www.bbc.com/n...europe-31142276

 

Is that going to help anybody?

God knows what Britain is going to do. With Argentina being given Warships by China, and the likelyhood of our army once again being downsized (1st time was 102,000 to 82,000, now the second wave will take it down to 60,000) we can barely do anything

60K certainly could be considered a low number for a big country. Maybe they have sort of “quick utilization reserve force”?

 

Meanwhile I found that another emblematic plane it’s approaching retirement:

There are now plans to increase the military presence on the Falkland Islands as Argentina is becoming a much bugger threat. About time!

Parker, do you think that there is high chance for a new war between GB and Argentina?

I assume that the events from the 80s will cast their shadow on these 2 nations’ relationships for a long time...

Maybe in the next decade or so Argentina my try something, it's anyone's guess at the moment

Yeah rumors were flooding the internet lately about Armata but the real thing is different than the rumored concept.I like it better this way. :D

Anyway we can't see new generation vehicles or equipment in the game my friend cause the story of the game is based on 90s if i'm not mistaken...

Yeah, you are right it's in the past. Maybe in expansion with bigger maps, more modern weapons, more options and keep on dreaming :wub:

Well guys, we also like to have tons of weaponary from 50s till today, but we will need an army of modelers and years to implement, code and fine tune them all.

We rather stick to more feasable scope for now, but in future we never know ;)
