I don't even get what's new about the iPad at all. Isn't that just an iPod with a bigger screen?`Anyway it made clear how everything instantly is popular if named right and presented by that Apple guy. If more people would catch on to that hunch we could solve major society problems so easily. 'iUne...

I looked around a bit and found the famous photograph showing the first flag to be raised over the monastery to be of the Polish corps. http://img695.imageshack.us/img695/3850/cassino.jpg The short reading I did on it while searching indicated the French and Marrocan forces saw action on the far lef...

Loss of radio contact would be my guess, too. Considering the objective is always somewhere in the center the HQ either is on one of the far flanks obviously losing contact to the other side or being killed in your charge.

The Polish participated, if I'm not mistaken, in the last assault on Cassino in May. A Polish unit in fact raised the first Allied flag over the devastated monastery.

Keep in mind Sean doesn't have a staff doing that sort of things for him, so please leave him a few weeks to reply. Also make sure to check your spam filter.

While I certainly agree that history shows certain behaviours appearing on certain sides significantly often projecting that onto the whole group pretty much makes it a stereotype (most common stereotypes actually have their source in customs and traditions, too).

I would be interested to know why you want to do this. I wanted to start a mod about the Spanish Civil War. I more or less randomly got to read a bit about the topic before christmas and found it quite interesting. Also I thought that Firefight should be easily able to portray it rather well. If it...

I never made ships specifically for wingman duties, so they basically get the same I do. In general I prefer a Scout class (or equivalent) ship on the far end of my squadron so no enemy squadrons will slip past me unnoticed, which is a constant problem of mine in escort missions. For strike missions...

The column formation actually is quite underrated. With the right spacing you can just dart through the enemy defense squadron and attack your primary target with ease using it. You meet the enemy squadron, and because at that point you are the only ship of your flight they can make out, they will t...

While I'm all for Sean getting more sales I don't like the idea too much. 1. I don't like Steam one bit. I have had some history with it in its early days and can't get over that, call me tenacious. 2. As far as I know the large majority of Steam users just aren't one bit of the usual audience for S...

(No offence, I just always wanted to use that site for something... and it after all might help.)
