So many german photos these days...

Workers at the Birmingham Railway Carriage and Wagon Company celebrate the handing over of the first of many Valentine MK2 tanks made for the Russian front , in front of a workshop in Smethwick - September 22, 1941

 The Victory-V signs decorating the tank were made of stickers that read: "Speed the Tanks – for Russia!" The workers are holding a Union flag and a Russian flag and many have their fists raised in a Communist salute. Present were the Russian Ambassador to Britain Ivan Maisky and Harold Macmillan, who was at that time Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Supply.

 Speaking to the workers in Smethwick, Maisky declared that the tanks “will not rust in idleness” but would be sent to the front line as soon as they arrived in Russia. The first British tanks went into action on November 20, 1941, in the Battle of Moscow.

The first tank to leave the works was named Stalin and Mrs Maisky performed the honours, unveiling the name that had been covered by a Soviet flag.

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.
