There is more where we come from. :ninja:


A little primer on the boards:


The I&I 2013 planning thread


The World of Tanks forum


The World of Warplanes thread


The World of Warships thread


The Kerbal Space Program thread


Fritz' CGI model thread


Our little roleplaying thread on what would have happened if Russia never sold Alaska to the US. Read what has happened so far here.


The Broken Computers forum


Avoid the Free Fire Zone in the absence of compelling reasons. It's full of Eurocommies and right-wing Rethuglicans. ^_^

Name: Frank

Age: 35 and counting
Country: Germany

Occupation: Wunderwaffe  :) - i.e. building internet stuff for paying & grateful customers
Service: I got drafted into the Bundeswehr and served with the Panzergrenadiere
Comments: Some of you know may know me even before I was member of Tanknet by means of my oldest Brother, BansheeOne. I got sucked into an I&I in Berlin, and now it seems there was now reasonable way to avoid being on the forum.  :) 


Welcome, Frank!

Name: Blackscorpy, and various variations of it
Age: 24
Country: Finland, SW-ish bits
Service: 362 days of conscript service in FAF, F-18 mechanic. Spent the previous week riding BMP-2s and MT-LBv and doing delays battles, go figure.
Interest: Military stuff, history, shooting sports, photography. I've recently taken an interest in marksmanship/sniper/long range shooting stuff, looking at maybe getting that added as a military qualification.

Was browsing this thread and the thing that struck me was we're all getting old.... (some of you guys placed age at time of posting in this thread at early 30s, and now you guys are in the 40s :P ).

Don't get me started! When I joined Tanknet, I thought guys like Michael Eastes were waaay older than me, and guys like you were waaaaay younger. Now those age differences are pretty much roundoff error, and the yutes are young enough to be my illegitimate progeny.

I know how you all feel. Why, I feel so old, I can almost remember when this forum was carved on a cave wall. :D


Noted it was started by Geoff. Still miss him posting up. :(


And here I thought that it was started on the crew compartment bulkhead in a Mk.IV Female.


I miss Geoff, and King, and Mr. Littlefield...unfortunately that list will keep getting longer.
