Ferdinand KO-ed by a ricochet through the open drivers hatch, while trying to recover another bogged down Ferdinand. Open hatches were mandatory in cross-country conditions, due to severe overheating of the engines: at least four Ferdinande were marked as a total lost in 1943 due to engine fires.

Ah, German engineering at it's finest.

ARA San Juan (S-42) has been found by Seabed Constructor owned by Ocean Infinity, a US Private Company hired by the Argentine Government, on November 16, almost exactly one year since it went missing. The wreck lies 800m below the surface at 500km from Comodoro Rivadavia. As you can see from the image, there's a main body and some scattered remains around the area.

Preliminary reports indicate that the wreck's hull is badly damaged, deformed, collapsed and might show signs of an implosion. I believe the wreck will be inspected soon, filmed and photographed.

This puts an end to the tragic history of the 44 crewmembers of the San Juan, but it opens up a whole new investigation.

Is he bad that much? Right wing sounds good

No, it does not sound good.

Unless you want to sterilize the poor to fight poverty...

The dual shock never gave me problems of any kind, I've had it for years now.. maybe a full decade. It works on every single game I tried controllers on. From PES to Dark Souls.

Nice shots. What do you use as an input device? I am reluctant to buy an xBox controller and the PS ones are supposed to be really iffy with Windows so I'm sticking to a joystick to play Beam.NG - which is really far from optimal so that I won't touch any competitive car games for now.

I bought a Logitech G29 last March, it's a good wheel if you want to get into simracing (Then you have custom and expensive stuff like Fanatec wheels if you're really serious about it). Mine has a problem though, it makes a noise when you turn to the left especially if the game has a "strong" Force Feedback setting.

I used to play rFactor (the first) with a Logitech Dual Shock, it was pretty fun.

Assetto Corsa, I love it.

Yes the Germans also thought they were fighting for a good cause, and that good cause was the complete elimination of Communism and it's Jewish masters as they like to call them. The idea of "cleaning" Europe from the "Barbaric Slavs and the Jews" was well within the Wehrmacht at the time.

Hard to call it "fighting for the glory of conquest" when you're motivated by an aggressive ideology that is National-Socialism. People should stop romanticizing the Wehrmacht.

It must've been such a surrealistic experience for some regular German soldiers. Enlisting with pride to serve their fatherland and being hailed as heroes and mighty conquerors during the first years of the war, only to slowly start realising their leader is a madman that is leading the nation into its defeat and that they are actually serving an evil party that is exterminating people by the millions.

Heh, they kinda knew it since the beginning.

Subs will be interesting, despite their intended role not to engage a fleet and sink 5 ships...

We'll see how they play out on Halloween event.
