  at least is adds some action to the kill buffer to drown out whining and politics... more food for thought.

Definitely. That's like watching a deluded pack of pugs trying to hump a draw full of socks.

Yeah I'm not trying to change the way people play, just more of an eye for and eye type of thing.

BINGO.  We deserve the ability to get credit for those who get credit for taking us out.  They can keep playing the way they want.  Not trying to change their behavior with this request.

It's OK that some 88 aces will not like this wish.  No problem.  The other 99.9% of players in this game see this wish as fair and L-O-N-G overdue.

I could care less.  Have it count as 1 billion kills against me, it won't stop me from using the gun.  :)

What ever is changed, someone whines. That's unavoidable, side effect of human nature.

Give the 88ís the higher gear ratio so it can rotate as fast as it should be.  :rock

Also ability to look around when manning ack or 17-pounder. Hard to believe all ack and anti-tank gunners had that stiff necks.

You have to map your hat switches to gun mode.
Back after a loooooong break. Old name Ratpack1 same for the BBS.

Squad I did the most tours with were the Excaliburs then The 172nd Rabid Dogs. Still trying to talk Illigaf, Coola, Oldman22, and Joecrow into coming back instead of being boring old farts!

Dang! I copied the settings in it but it never worked so I thought it's made that way. I'm on obligatory fly pause as my game pc mobo said "pox". Have to try again when I get new one. Thx!

Can be any keys or controller button. Just go to the gun mode and set your views.

Works in other guns now but not in 17-pounder. Also, zooming with it is on-off. Is there a cure for that?
