  1. D, It's not an issue mate. We can still update your key without any issues to the new key type.
  2. At least across most of the NATO and ABCA (especially) nations there has been quite a lot of standardized equipment. The training across ABCA and some of the NATO SOF is quite similar too. There is quite a lot of cross polination of unit visits and also Liason Officers. It's becoming pretty hard to pick which ABCA SOF unit is represented in a picture from Afghanistan (except for the National Flag)!
  3. Like that is ever going to happen. Nice, Gordo! Makes me want to pull out my VBS discs again. Too bad my computer can't handle it any more. Zjj, If you ever get a PC that can run it let me know. @Rocky: No problem at all mate. For the VBS2 PE users out there VBS2 2.0 will be provided to you guys as a free update as well. Ground Branch is going to be a great title...no doubt about that. You only need to look at the heritage of games that group have delivered to the market. ArmA3 is going to be another good title...and for the more hard core stuff DCS series is
  4. G'Day mate! Been way too long. Looks like it would have been an excellent demo to witness! I've seen a few down here in Australia over the last few years and they are impressive! Though i was a little bit closer then the video was taken from! There is talk of creating International SOF capabilities based on regions. I.e. sharing more intel and resources...could be a good thing.
  5. VBS2 2.0 Video: Note does contain fairly detailed wounding model; might disturb some people.
  6. Pretty good docco... covers SASR/CDOs and IRR Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5 Part 6
  7. Excellent. I'll be sure to look for a game (most likely on the weekend!)
  8. Yeah it's a grand old time. Any interest in Co-Op play with other Gr.Net players?
  9. Oh he's a hero. But typically with the case with guys like that he's pretty damn humble about it all and can't understand why he was selected out of all his mates to be awarded that honor. As to the floods down here...yeah Northern Australia has been copping it again. It's our wettest summer in quite some time; but ironically we've had bush fires on the Western side of Australia. Nice and dry where we are at the moment. Had a 110+ per day week back here about three weeks ago.
  10. Will do mate. Be good to catch up. Likewise if you get down to Australia!
  11. RIP Sam. Condolences to his family and his friends.

  13. I'd say a lot have watched it. It aired in the U.S. a few years ago and it's been on YouTube for as long. DS Had heard the A3 416 was having some issues. But it appears to work pretty well otherwise!
  14. They go for about 30,000 a pop.

They did some of the test/eval using VBS2:
  15. Yeah Crowie. Loved the comment one guy made...gee I didn't realise North Korea was that big lmao

  17. Ruin, Live training is always a good thing. Simulatior training prior to the live stuff makes it more effective. Neat little system at Bragg: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G067gF94wZk Para, Yeah that'd be VBS2 mate. There not the only ones using it in theatre.
  18. Hey Mate! Good to hear you're doing well and have a new hobby! Take care of yourself! BTW I've seen some artwork representing you in a SOF book published in Australia (based on SOF and PMCs operating in Iraq). Will have to scan it for ya!
  19. Awesome series on the NZSAS. 18 Part Series...really well done. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPQ6OFG8ZnU&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdfIYsmHAR0&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4BKDeW1dm4&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CSxIy7y8PI&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W757lcYfRkw&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OFcMM5KxcM&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i53FN1WXnG8&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5L3IJmFirRU&feature=related http://www.youtube.co
  20. Winged Warrior 2010 Exercise Winged Warrior once again offered some pre-deployment training for the next rotation of personnel from 430 (Tactical Helicopter) Squadron, based at Valcartier, Que. who are headed for Afghanistan. The exercise, based in virtual reality using high tech simulation, was set in contemporary Afghanistan and challenged CH-146 Griffon and CH-147 Chinook helicopter crews with a variety of scenarios and the "unexpected" that comes with operating in a hostile environment. The simulated environment gained another level of realism at this year’s exercise by increasing
  21. DS, Yeah mate. Apparently the normal Aussie cammo pattern for the regulars is going to change as well. @Ghostbusters comment: That's the local Police force the chicken stranglers work with...they've trained and equipped them to a pretty good standard.
  22. DS; Aussie SOF are using the Multi-Cam now as well mate...just to make things interesting: http://www.defence.gov.au/op/afghanistan/gallery/2010/20100616/index.htm
