I am brave.  One of my kennel assistants is a right nasty piece of work.  You try telling her there’s another dog posted in to look after.

Some of those dogs are proper viscous! Sod that-keep it.

Wouldn't do much damage to be honest, our rounds are more designed for other tanks and not soft targets, but a round in each stand would do a lot of damage,

would love to put one in the middle of the pitch though.

I've just downloaded the world of tanks game for my phone....if you need any advice or technical information let me know.

 

FFS.

A neutral turn in the middle of the stain, bit like twin town

Just wondering how many armed forces, servicemen or military personnel we have as members on here


Any current or former armed forces lads and lasses on here?

 

Would be good to hear from you, where you are or where you went and what your experiences are of supporting the Owls during your time in service

I served in the RAF from 1990 to 1997. Based at both RAF Kinloss and RAF lossiemouth. 450 miles from Sheffield but I still managed at least 10 matches a season. I used to base all my leave around the most possible home and away fixtures I could get in. I did all the Wembley trips in 1993 and was there for the league cup win at wembley.  Also saw the owls at Parkhead in 1993 friendly at celtic and watched Aberdeen v blackburn at pitodrie when blackburn were prem champions. I also watched Elgin v Aberdeen which is a local derby up there, such was my desire to watch live football. Good times.

Julie is a good lass.

 

Was only chatting with her yesterday.

 

Used to be one of our flagship sections.  Mine’s better, of course.

She was sound. Just hope the dogs appreciate it! Tell her she needs to do some outside areas-dog Richards everywhere. lol

I'd use sabot and fast machine gun fire..then I'd reverse at 98mph whilst engaging multiple threats and chucking out smoke and grenade bombs and mortaring everyone else.

Just hit my 16 year point. 

 

Ex dukes now WO2 in Royal Artillery. Appreciate the concession season tickets prices and will keep buying them until i leave the forces.

 

a great memory was when i was shipped off the helmand province in 2007, had been in a bit of dust up in Garmsir,  when it all calmed down i got talking to a fire support lad in the grendier guards called “fluffy” who was a mad Man city fan - he broke the news to me that the pigs had been relegated!

 

Now that was a good day !

Was based in Aldershot for a few months & went to a local derby FA cup game Aldershot v Woking.

 

Also went to QPR v Tranmere whilst in Aldershot.

 

And Exeter v Darlington whilst at Lympstone.

 

The forces can lead you to random games.

The Sabot uses Kinetic energy, travels at 1,470 meters per second, no damage to target apart from a neat hole as small in dia as a can of sloppy peas, its the Decompression followed by the sudden return to norm which kills, sucks you in, blows you out, just got to plug the holes and pick up the pieces of

bodies. then you got a free tank.

Might be slightly out on the speed not by much but it was 20 odd years ago.

lol

remember walking into the departures lounge at bastion just as Simonsen sent his penalty into orbit. I burst out laughing, but as a WO2 at the time the glares from the oinkers in the Yorks Regt soon were fixed back on granny sausage finger’s and co.
