I strongly recommend that you do join Armor. My little ship killed two tanks at Quang Tri. I asked the ground observer what do the tanks look like? After a short delay said nothing but twisted metal. 73 pound projectile traveling at 1800 feet per second with direct hits with only 6 pounds of TNT in the steel encased warheads.

That's pretty cool, though. Whatever you did sounds pretty damn cool too.
Thanks from Twisted Sister

Not cool and scary as Hell because they had a shore battery with a giant gun shooting at us. However, the enemy lacked Radar and Computer fire control and took them out like a chicken on a June Bug.
Thanks from Generaloberst and Hollywood

They run around in a guy's mind, giving off sparks when they run into something, which is all the time because they don't look where they are going.

They must be invited to leave, and if they won't go peacefully then they've got to be shoved out the door.
Thanks from Generaloberst

They can also use a few more bullet magnets & shrapnel sponges. That's what we called 0311's back in my day.
Do not take Hollywood's advice. Marines are put in the line of fire first. There canon fodder.

But there is retribution. There's retribution all the time. Even for scaredy cats like you, who were safe and sound on there little boat, while troops were been slaughtered.
