What would the best battle be to either watch in a movie or actually play in a game?

    Maybe it´s jealous about your relationship between you and Col.Dom, talk to it and make it a WILD EAGLE member!

    Hehheh, no WAY! It's not worth it. It's going to computer Hell when I get it replaced:p I think I'll take some of the valuable metal on the inside out of it before that happens, and you can be sure of that!

    Well, we do have an equal opportunity membership policy. However, from what Wulf says, that PC does not sound like a mega-dude....

    :p

    That really doesn't seem to be explained in the press kit at all... It in fact seems to say the exact opposite, to me:

    The time on the Tiger's Claw is part of their Academy service. This is also the feeling I get from Tolwyn's announcement that he gives during Red And Blue explaining the transfer.

    That's enough please, Ghost. Though for good measure, concession accepted

    We know the class graduated early because of heavy losses -- they talk about it in the WC1/2 guide. "Wing Commander Academy" is a proper noun in the 'glossary' section...

    Hmmm... Is Bob actually banned, or did he just change his graphic and rank in an attemt at humor?

    If he´s not banned, he might be on that "parole" status that was applied to some users last week.

    The CIC Justice Dept. is improving its penalty system. :)

    IMO LOAF didn't digest that Bob spammed Spacebattles.com for the nth time... :)

    It is unfortunate that sometimes militray's must push fresh cadets right into active service to fill in the losses of the last campaign. I remember in END RUN Jason was complaining about that happening. The cadets that he got under his command were hardly what he called combat ready. Though getting the cadets out there does fill the gaps from the recent losses... they also die that much faster because of inadequet training.

    And that is very unfortunate in reality.

    seriously, in WWI the average life expectancy of a new pilot was twenty minutes as they were rushed through training

    No one asked you.

    ...
    It's like the fact that the average life of a US officer in 'Nam was about 12 mins.

    If you don't want my input, then don't be such a moron. Your post was basically just repeating what Oggy had already said. Now if you had actually added something to the conversation (like your information about Vietnam), this wouldn't have been an issue.
