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 .

  • Modern USMC Tank Battalion

    what does one consist of? # of tanks, accompanying infantry, support vehicles etc?

    would they have say Strikers attached to to them or would those be separate?
    Keep working, millions on welfare depend on YOU.

    when last i checked it was a three company battalion of 15 M1 now upgraded to A1's per company. they had retained the 3 platoon concept of 5 tanks which the USA changed.

    here is an older TOE of the USMC from 2001....force structure remains much the same.... equipment up grads ntl have occured.

    you could probably get a more current one at the USMC homepage if you dig.

      I don't believe the Marines have Strykers, they have LAV's. A tank battalion is just that, a tank battalion. Any infantry would come from an infantry battalion attached to them. The same with any LAV's or amphibious troop transports.

        Correct. USMC combined arms units are formed as Task Forces out of platoons, companys, and battalions. The TF composition is situationally driven not following a TO.

        The LAV are not used as infantry vehicals like the Stryker. They belong to the recon. Tho the automatic cannon are welcome as fire support.
