New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know. Please only send real issues not things like I hate the colors of the site or the site looks cheap now. I am trying to get as many issues fixed for you as i can and If i have to read through stuff like that it's going to take me longer to get stuff fixed.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

        oops...Sorry I gave credit to Skoblin 1st! I was reading an old thread on "why I joined the military" and was distracted from this one for a while.

          T-44 at a guess.

          • Well, the pic didn't say, but it sure does look like a T-44 if you ask me, Listy!

            • It is T-44, although it looks a bit unusual:
              - there is no splashboard on front, like on late models
              - difference between roadwheels is bigger between 1st and 2nd, like on early models
              - mudguards look flat (new ones look curved, like on T-55)

              So there might be some reason why this model ended up in the museum

              ----

              It is situated in Poklonnaya hill VOV Museum, in Moscow.

              Here is another interesting vehicle from that museum.

                As to the T-44, I would suggest the hull looks a bit T-54ish.

                    Yes it is!
                    After the battle of Stalingrad soviets captured lot of working Pz III, so they made this vehicle from them.
                    Interesting that some of those vehicles found way to their former owners.

                    Well, they certainly all do, although on mud guards we can see this is earlier version of T-44.

                        Is this a Female or Male tank?

                          It had 4MG + flamethrower, so it would be difficult to determine sex

                            Correct!
                            The design combined serious cooling problems with a dangerous vulnerability due to its two steam boilers and large fuel reservoirs
