Hey all!

While i DID take some pictures of ships in Ukraine, right after classifying them as targets, measuring angle on bow and estimating speed, i can't find them.

I only found a few. And to fill up space, I put in some more :P Like the one of a strange plant and a certain female obstructing the view of the cruise ship http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Target pratice. I can almost feel the sound of the twin 20mm in Socko's arms

That "tank-boat" pic is what I was waiting to see. T34/85 turret on the forward deck, more flak guns than you could shake a stick at and a 76mm on the quarterdeck. The Soviets built many of these ships for "riverine warfare", using whatever weapons were available at the time.

I know how this works. I bet its like with those stores in Russia.

In these stores, you dont take the stuff you want and pay afterwards, instead you go to the store lady and tell her what you want, someone gets it for you and after you've paid they give it to you right ?

Indeed it is, Celeon! What kind of spy network are you in charge in that bunker of yours?

Its espeacially nice when there are 2 ladies talking to each other while the line waits patiently. At which point I remembered my old drill voice and asked what's going on? For some reason it worked, and those two were "surprised" to see a lineup http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Although nowadays there are a lot of Western-type stores where you get what you want and pay. A lot more security though. And if they catch you stealing, you get more than a fine and a ban

What do you mean her friend's #? That ain't the one in the pink or yellow dress, from the first page of the pictures:P This one is special, just for me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

And I found out that the one I think you're talking about has found someone http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

So she won't be "OK, how about me. If she decides to visit California, I'll take her on a date to Disneyland " going to Disneyland with Tuddley anytime soon http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks for the pics, lots of familiar stuff in them- Lavra, Maidan, the display outside the War Museum etc etc. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
