We have been down this road before.

Don't show pics of autrocities, dead bodies,or pics of Human suffering.

Pics of weapons in action, or what ever are welcome. As long as it doesn't show visible Human suffering.

I have a bit of morbid curiosity too, but here is not the place.

If you post a link you had better search it over close for infractions of above.

We have too many posters here, and visitors, too young or that take offense to it, justly so.

I pulled Hawgdog's thread yesterday, because we we already getting bickering over pics. And I just pulled ARCHIE_CALVERT for the same reason. Bickering and pics of Human suffering.

Sadly I was at work and didn't have time to find ARCHIE_CALVERT's post so I could shut it down. Since I didn't Hawgdog managed to earn himself a suspension, from a fellow Moderator http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

-------------------------EDIT-------------------

Going to start adding links here as they show up of other threads with WW2 pics here aswell.

Biased posters? To say the least, YES!
It€s not like they are newcomers and don€t know better so I say a permanent ban is the only cure to the misuse of this forum.

This above was directed at me?
If so I don't understand the question of me. I didn't post nore see these pics you speak of here. If they are give me the link in a PT and I'll remove them.

So you want me to be a UBI NAZI?, I'd rather be tolerant to WW2 conversation, and relevent topics of it, including IL2. Without causing undo stress, to our fellow forum members. If you must speak more about it, take it to PT. This is going to be a Picture thread, not a debate over forum policies

Personally, I did not see anything wrong with any of the threads mentioned as I am more than willing to stare the cold hard facts and imagers of war in the face and see it for what it is and what is does.
Others are not so resolute and are disturbed easily and prefer not to see the casualties of war.
So often it is not the subject matter at hand that gets a post locked or removed but how people respond to it.
There is not much proactive in regards to moderating, often it is reaction. You get a feel for certain topics and posters and have a good sense of intuition in where a post is heading and in that regards can be proactive. But than you are often criticized for acting before something happens to offends someone, however if you wait than you are critized for not acting ahead of time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

So then Viking you are saying we should lock down all threads, that don't directly consern the game.

The Wildcat in the foreground (211-F-11) was flown on 11 December by Capt Elrod in the attack that sank the Japanese destroyer Kisaragi. Having suffered such damage as to make it unserviceable, 211-F-11 was ultimately cannibalized for spares.

Hi Viking,

not wanting to debate with you I feel it´s important to point out more of Ubi´s rules, from the same page you have quoted.

"RULES OF CONDUCT
In addition to the limitations set forth above, you will violate the Terms of Use if you in Ubi's sole discretion (or others using your Account) do any of the following:,....."

"sole discretion" is the main point here. The mods, representing Ubi, have the right to decide what is appropriate and what is not. I´ve had stuff deleted and threads removed in the past but can never argue against the actions of the mods. When I became a member I accepted that Ubi, and therefore the mods, have sole discretion. They are police, judge, and jury. By accepting the terms, I have no right to argue against this.

The only thing I would do if my stuff is deleted is to ask the mods why, simply because I don´t want to post the wrong stuff in the future.

I can recognize from my books, most of the pictures you've posted.

The fourth picture from the top at the end of the previous page is particularly interesting. It shows a couple of early model King Tigers (with curved turret fronts) parked under cover of trees.

Walking down the middle of the road are two British POW's, distributing rations to the Germans! I wonder what everyone here was thinking?????

Interesting, huh?

It´s hard to say. My German isn´t good enough to understand the speaker so well. I can pick up accents but I can´t fully understand what he´s saying. Even funnier, I´m a native Canadian English speaker. I can´t understand German when spoken by N Americans.http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

24th September.
Field marshal Model increases the fighting power of his battalions. His units are now including tanks and infantry. Additional 45 Tiger II tanks arrive from Germany to support the attack on Olsterbeck(?). They open up fire from their edge positions. The battalion €˜Jungwirth€ cuts through the corridor of the Allies at ?. Parts of the 30th corps are stuck south of the blockade and heavily tattered by attacks from German tanks and artillery.

Naga, that´s the confusing part. The narration is in support of the German side but spoken by a non-German, an Allied accent in fact.

CD_kp84yb(anyone wanna lend me an enigma? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif)mentioned it could have been counter propaganda, but then it would have been in English with German subtitles.

Yeah, the containers on the small wheelbarrow are almost certainly for food, prepared somewhere in the rear and taken to the forward troops in those special containers. During the 1970's, we used almost identical style containers for the same purpose in the Australian Army. Must be pretty widely used around the World, I should think.

Olsterbeek is Oosterbeek, together with 24 september 1944 , its a part from the battle of arnhem (operation market garden), Oosterbeek is the place where model was located when the brittish landed by parachute. now the germans tried to cut off the lines of the Alied according to the voice.

But why the american speaking "german", i realy have no clue, cos if i remember correctly The alied werent in germany by that time.

so there goes my counter newsreel, hahaha.

Hmmm it could be that the voice thought that the native language in the Netherlands was German. hahaha.

Hey Panther the vid is also in the link naga gave. its a sound wow it gives me shivers

Yes, they have the curved Porsche turret design instead of the standard Henschel one, which is seen in the other pics.

By the way, the Ferdinand/Elephant TD was based on the chassis of the prototypes Porsche submitted against the Tiger I specification. The name 'Ferdinand' was to honor Dr. Ferdinand Porsche.

The Porsche turret was flawed in several respects over the Henshcel turret. Firstly, it had a shot trap that deflected incoming fire onto the (relatively) thin forward deck armour of the tank. And secondly, it was harder to produce. The rather flat forward section of the Henshsell turret lacked the shot trap and was much easier to produce.

Having said that, Herr Dr. Porsche anticipated shaped turrets such as those seen on post war soviet tanks, but he wasn't very good at it.

Some marks of the Panther tank also suffered from shot traps, chins were placed on the gun mantle on later marks to obviate the tendancy of rounded gun mantles to deflect incoming shot through the thin deck armour and into the soft upper workings of crew members.

The 37mm PAK

http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f163/cd_kp84yb/37mm_anti_tank_gun.jpg

Hmmm a few years back ( 1993) we had one of these at my work, The dam thing was in working condition. It was captured by US troops in 1944, and they took it across Europe, its color was olive drap and had lots of paintings on it from places where it had been, IIRC it was 101.
Now after the war they gave the cannon to a place and it ended as a statue. A museum took it and ask us if we could restorate (english??) it, LOL no problem, every thing was in working condition except for the firing pin.
Now it was a shame that we couldnt give the gun its original color (panzergrau) they ment it had to be repainted olivedrab and with all the paintings. So we took it apart and sandblasted it, now modellers here is a good detail, i never saw it before. After the sandblasting the shield showed a structure, with a closer look you could see little swastika's stamped all over the shield. Damm i wish i had a camera with me that day, hundreds of little swastika's about 10 mm big (i do this from recall so the precise size i cant remember) . Like i said i never saw it before, but you could see them clear.

This is a B-24 Liberator bomber taking a direct hit in the number 4 engine which has resulted in the failure of the starboard wing. This was typical of what happened when flak was accurate. Few crewmen were fast enough with a camera to capture what this picture shows . Usually B-24's flew at lower altitudes than B-17 did and were subjected to more intense flak as a result.

Hi, major_setback

Quote: Krupp works, Essen (does anyone know what they made?). Before and after bombing.

Not too sure how many mills/factories they had, or what specifically went on at the Essen plant, but Krupp were major producers and users of steel and were involved in the large scale manufacture of heavy armaments, such as tank turrets to name just one. (The design and manufacture of turrets for the King Tiger was mentioned in a previous post on this thread.)

Krupp were renown for their steelworks.

As a young man, I rented an apartment and the caretaker/concierge was a German WW2 veteran, who told me many interesting stories and I learned a few 'sayings'. Apparently, the expression "As strong as Krupp steel" was quite popular at the time!

Is this guy climbing onto the plane or jumping off? It looks like he's climbing onto it.

Lieutenant Walter L. Chewning, Jr., USNR, the Catapult Officer, is climbing up the plane's side to assist the pilot from the burning aircraft. The pilot, Ensign Byron M. Johnson, escaped without significant injury. USS Enterprise was then en route to support the Gilberts Operation.

I remember my dad driving me down to Milwaukie OR (a suburb of Portland) to get gas there because I enjoyed going there. You can't see it too well, but inside the attendants house was a ladder leading to the inside of the aircraft. It was mostly gutted but for a 11 year old kid little did I care.
Some thought using a B-17 like this was an abomination, others thought it a nice commemorative. There was talk a couple of years ago about finding that plane and restoring the orginal gas station but it has faded away.

Actually I believe this was posted by someone here about a year ago, can't recall who.....This picture inspired me to look around some and I found a number of places around the world including more of the one above where rather unique aircraft were/are used as decoration.......Really a topic worthy of a thread of its own...Feel free to snag this one and start one if you'd like.

Hey, I too remember that bomber as a kid. I lived in Portland. At the time I thought that big plane was just really 'neat', but I sure didn't realize what a valuable piece of history was in front of me. It's been many years, is that gas station and the bomber gone? Hope not. I'll remember next time when I visit family to go take a look, again.

I can recognize from my books, most of the pictures you've posted.

The fourth picture from the top at the end of the previous page is particularly interesting. It shows a couple of early model King Tigers (with curved turret fronts) parked under cover of trees.

Walking down the middle of the road are two British POW's, distributing rations to the Germans! I wonder what everyone here was thinking?????

Interesting, huh?


Best regards,

That was a photo of 3 Kompanie / Schwere Panzer Abteilung 103 in Normandy. They were the only Kompanie of Panzerkampfwagen VIB's to fight in Normandy and were equipped with Porsche turret versions of the VIB, which represented the first 50 production units. The British POW's are being put to work re-arming the vehicles. In microarmor (1/285th / 6mm scale) I have a kompanie of Porsche Turret VIB's painted up in 3 / 103's pattern.

By the way, when I said, "....a couple of early model King Tigers (with curved turret fronts)"...., that was partly keeping it brief for readers' benefit - many of whom I suspect might become bored with too much detail - but mostly because I prefer not to use the term 'Porsche turret' [as this would not be strictly accurate - just me being a pain-in-the-a r s e pedantic bastard again].

Its all human suffering. Give me a break. Look at the guys with the mortor. Don't you think they suffered and had nightmares throughout there life if they survived? I know a guy here in town that was a marine in WW2 and he STILL wakes his wife up crying and screaming.

Gonna get flamed or my post edited but I don't care. I understand the mods position a bit but this reminds me of a political cartoon I saw about the Iraq war. Two TVs, one tuned to al-Jazeera showing a dead Iraqi ("insurgent", "terrorist", what you will) and the other tuned in to Fox showing a GI pulling the trigger. Both are part of the same event(as would be a bomb planted by the Iraqis or an rpg fired by them etc.).

Obviously a lot of these pics were outside of combat, but any pic of a plane dropping bombs or a howitzer firing has the result we are not supposed to see here.

Hi everyone!

Thought some of you might like to see these pics of track maintenance on King Tiger:


Pic 1 shows closeup of retaining ring and cotter that was on end of each track pin. One of these had to be undone and removed to split the track.

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e333/panther3485/jt1.jpg


Pic 2 shows a steel rod, about 2/3 the thickness of the track pin itself, being used to drive the pin out.

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e333/panther3485/jt2.jpg


Pic 3 shows track pulling tool that could be used to ease tension between track links, permitting easier removal of a pin. It could also be used during re-connection.

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e333/panther3485/jt3.jpg


Pic 4 shows cable attached to loose end of track, preparing to winch back into position.

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e333/panther3485/jt4.jpg


Pic 5, the track pulling cable is wound around the drive sprocket a couple of times and power is then applied to pull the track into position.

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e333/panther3485/jt5.jpg


In pic 6, we see the point where the re-join will be made in this particular case. (The figure '1' penned over the photo indicates the lubrication point for the drive sprocket outer bearings.)

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e333/panther3485/jt6.jpg


Pic 7 gives an overall view as the track starts to be pulled back over the running gear.

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e333/panther3485/jt7.jpg


Pic 8 - When the track starts to be engaged by the drive sprocket, the pulling cable can be removed.

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e333/panther3485/jt8.jpg


Pic 9 shows case of a couple of links 'needing replacement', involving removal of another track pin.

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e333/panther3485/jt9.jpg


In pic 10, the 'replacement links' have already been fitted. The track pulling tool is fitted ready to commence re-coupling. [Note the thickness of the main shaft of the track pin, which is about one and a half times the thickness of this man's fingers!]

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e333/panther3485/jt10.jpg


Pic 11 shows the large socket and leverage bar used to tighten the track pulling tool, drawing the ends of the track together.

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e333/panther3485/jt11.jpg


Pic 12 shows how a steel bar can also be used to help bring the ends into alignment.

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e333/panther3485/jt12.jpg


Pic 13 - After re-connection is completed, track tension is adjusted from the rear idler. Correct tension is achieved when there is approximately one hand's width of clearance between the track and the top of the first roadwheel.

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e333/panther3485/jt13.jpg


For those who might be considering the possible vulnerability of these tracks to MG fire, their massive size and strength should be apparent. This was toughened Manganese Steel!

The tracks of the Tiger I were of a different design, but very similar in bulk and thickness.

Not bad pics, huh?

Heya Panther, i must have been clearer in that pic, i know i know.

its a Panther just count the number of outside roadwheels , but DONT ASK ME WHAT type of panther, hahahahahaha , The only one i can think of is a destroyed one http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif.

Closer look give that the muzzlebreak is visable
but very hard to see.

About the track changing, it brings back memory's (blood sweet and cursing) when they taught me how to drive tanks (handy for my job in those days), and guess what, you need to learn how to change tracks, it is still done how you have showed in the pics,nothing has changed.

Lol at the driving school the dam instructors, loosened the tracks when you were away, first rule for all military vehicles, inspect the vehicle for starting (oil, cooling everything).

Lol now when you had put the track on tension, and you where driving ****, your tank can throw a track ez, now if you not alert ( you hear knocking ) it goes of the sprocket, well than the instructors abandon tank while speaking to the driver "have a nice day son, we are in the cantine, give us a call when the track is mounted again http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif" , dam hard work to put a track on a tank on your own. so next time you realy listened how to drive a tank correctly http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Edit :

Hmmm now when i look at the pic the panther is in to good shape for a near miss both tracks not damaged, the gun is pointin 10 o clock (it could have been in combat).
So i think the driver screwed up and drove into the hole sideways and the panther turned upside down.

03-12-2006, 05:50 AM
Hiya, CD_kp84yb

Yep. I didn't bother looking at roadwheels, though. Dead - a r s e give-aways for me were:

(a) The pattern of the tracks, unique to Panther, Jagdpanther, Bergepanther.
(b) The size, shape and angle of the bow plate (the front bit, towards the top of the pic, that the three soldiers have their feet on)
(c) The fact that the front third of the belly has thicker plating, but no escape hatch.
(d) The size, shape, pattern and distribution of the maintenance access covers in the belly.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

By the time my lazy brain had taken in all of this, I didn't get as far as the roadwheels but yes, you are right. That's one of the more obvious clues!

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif


Regarding experience with vehicles, I can relate only a little bit, as the heavy vehicles I drove in the Army were all wheeled types. But the instructors were full of tricks like the one you told and you had to be on your toes, or you suffered!

Possibly, they are dropping parachute canisters of supplies etc, from the bomb bay, and the troops jump out the side door?

Also, bomb bay doors open would make it much easier to accurately spot the Drop Zone?

Just a couple of thoughts there, but I'm not exactly sure. [I used to be a paratrooper.]

Well, having been in that biz for a few years, my initial observations are a bit different. What you see as a guy in the door, I see as multiple static lines hanging out the door swinging in the breeze. Also note how close the three troopers are in the shot, leads one to think the plane is traveling at extremely low airspeed. Might explain why the bay doors are open, to achieve that slow speed with maximum drag.

Most airdrop planes still throw out flap and jump spoilers to get slow enough to drop.

Two more goodies then I'm done.
These are two of the systems I used while in the 101 MI Bn, 1st Infantry Div.:

TLQ-17 Jammer mounted on a M1037 HMMVW:
http://home.grics.net/jrink/Saudi/TLQ17.jpg

TRQ-32 Radio intercept/Direction Finder mounted on a M-1028 (Chevy 3/4 ton) truck. It looks bad, but we had dual rear wheels (an after Desert Storm mod) and a tape deck installed. The rain-proof cabin, 120VAC power (yep, real household current!) and air pump (for the antenna mast, but it was great for inflating air mattresses and volleyballs) made us the envy of all!

http://home.grics.net/jrink/Saudi/TRQ32.jpg

Both of these pictures were taken at Ft Irwin, californina, the National Training Center.

HMMMMMM looking at that pic of the planes on the back of the carrier.
Are our carriers (pacific fighters) too small or are our planes (in game) to big, cos i see alot of planes on the deck, and i cant place them like that in the game.

yeah, its a P40, but im trying to figure which version and what AF. Our decks do seem to be a tad small in comparison to the planes, but i understand thats a real hard thing to get right in a sim....il2 PF comes pretty close though. they compensate by allowing planes on deck to move thru each ohter apperently though.

Those iraq photos are incredible. I love the one of the Brit mortar firing. Is that a photo a bit above it of Brit light 105s?

And it appears that the burned out plane above is an SU-22.

The girl in my sig was in the 24th ID a yr after her pic below was taken, and she was driving a dodge 4x4 when she got 2 flats at once to the rocks i guess. They were left until a repair veh came up wiht spares (she didnt like that a bit). When she saw soldiers of unk origin on a hill thru binocs, she had the guy wiht her help set up the .50 they were carrying in a trailor on the hood of the truck.....quite useless there, but she wanted to intimidate.

No, I think it's either a P-51A or an A-36. It's definitely got an Allison engine with that scoop on top of the nose, but look at the cockpit. I don't know of any versions of P-40 that had that kind of canopy.

Yes. You have exceeded the limit.

There's no problem if no-one looks at the uploaded images, but if many people are opening them you will exceed the bandwidth limit.

Not a permanent problem though, the limit is set on a monthly basis. Once you reach the next month it will reset and your pictures can be shown again.

I think it resets a month from the day you started your account, and then that same day every month. (unsure of this though). You can see which day you joined under 'My Account/account options' which is linked on the sites first page.

(MG-34) as a heavy machinegun.

Just a tiny terminology note: rifle caliber machine gun, i.e. 6,5mm - 8mm firing from tripod is medium mg in English terminology.
Heavy mg is a weapon firing rounds of larger caliber, like 11mm, 12,7mm, 13,2mm, 14,5mm, 15mm, etc. up to 20mm.

MG-34 was the first of general purpose mgs used practically, i.e. mounted in tripod was functionally a medium mg, without tripod, i.e fired from bipod or in hands it was functionally a light mg.

in our country the gun mounted on tripod and not in grouprole ( 4 groups per platoon so 4 mg's on bipod) is heavy machine gun.

Like you said tiny difference in terminology.

we call machine guns on bipods and manned by 2 man light (or groupweapon), and machineguns on tripod manned by 3 or 4 man heavy machinegun (companyweapon), no matter what calibre.
Hehehehe well i havent seen a .50 cal mg mounted and fired from a bipod.

EDIT: I made a typo here its not 4 groups per platoon but only 3.
Sorry

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif And we have:

ciężki karabin maszynowy (ckm) "heavy mg" - rifle caliber mg designed to be used with tripod, equal to English medium mg, say Maxim 08, Hotchkiss 14,

lekki karabin maszynowy (lkm) "light mg" - a ckm or medium mg, modified to be used on bipod rather than tripod, say MG08/15 or M1919A6,

ręczny karabin maszynowy (rkm) "hand-held mg" - a weapon designed specifically to be a mg fired mainly from bipod or in hands, say Lewis, Bren - both above categories make English light mg category,

uniwersalny karabin maszynowy (ukm) "universal mg" - equal to English general purpose mg and finally

wielkokalibrowy karabin maszynowy (wkm) "large-caliber mg" - mgs firing rounds between 11mm and 20mm, equal to English heavy mg.

So different nomenclature in each country I guess, but for the sake of clarity, lets stick to English one http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The .30 cal M1917 was officially typed as a Heavy Machine gun. However, the closely related .30 cal M1919 was a "light" machine gun. In WWII US Army terms, a heavy machine gun is one capable of sustained (i.e. heavy) fire.

M1917 would be classified as heavy mg (and such a name for rifle caliber mg on tripod stayed in many countries till today) when it was introduced, because what we call a heavy mg, i.e. 11mm-20mm mgs didnt exist yet then http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
All that existed until 13,2mm TuF and 12,7mm M1921 (first version of M2) was heavy (tripod) and light (bipod) mgs.

Anyway in current common English terminology (as opposed to military one, where strange things happen, say naming weapons by function rather than technical properties - say M249 5,56 x 45 NATO light mg being "Squad Automatic Weapon" officially), rifle caliber mg on tripod is medium mg, while heavy mg is a large caliber weapon like 12,7mm x 99 M2HB or 12,7mm x 108 NSV.
What I mean is suggesting to stick to modern English terminology in all cases, including historic weapons, to maintain clarity.
