  1. Hello guys, it's been a while. I haven't posted something new on the forums (usually at Militaria forum section), i had been busy with some campus works/assignments, and it goes from there. But, if i'm having a free time, will be updating and continously posting while i still can. This is some of the knowledge, to you all the readers.. enjoy-! Today, i'll be talking about LGS Fennek, requested by @=Wolf= Jersans from previous posts (so, this is likely a late post, and sorry for being late-). It's basically an armored scout car equivalent to some others, like Chinese (PLA) VN3 and Russian/Polish BRDM-2 (or BRDM-2M-98 Zbik's) The Fennek, named after the fennec (a species of small desert fox), or LGS Fennek, with LGS being short for Leichter Gepanzerter Spähwagen in German (Light Armoured Reconnaissance Vehicle), is a four-wheeled armed reconnaissance vehicle produced by the German company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann and Dutch Defence Vehicle Systems. The Turkish company, FNSS Defence Systems acquired the right for licence production in 2004. It was developed for both the German Army and Royal Netherlands Army to replace their current vehicles. - History In April 2000, the prototype vehicle finished field trials and in December 2001, a combined order was placed. 410 were ordered by the Royal Netherlands Army (202 reconnaissance, 130 MRAT (medium range antitank) and 78 general purpose versions) and 222 by the German military (178 reconnaissance, 24 combat engineer, 20 joint fire support teams (JFST)). More Fenneks for the German Army will be procured from 2015 on. Germany plans an overall purchase of approximately 300 Fenneks. The first vehicle was delivered to the Netherlands in July 2003 and the first to Germany in December of the same year. Deliveries will continue until 2011 (additional orders for the German Army are planned from 2015 on). The Dutch SP Aerospace company, which produced the Fennek for the Dutch military, was declared bankrupt in August 2004. A new company called Dutch Defence Vehicle Systems (DDVS) was created to continue the production of the vehicles for the Royal Netherlands Army. - Specifications The Fennek has four wheels with selectable two or four wheel drive. It has a Deutz diesel engine producing 179 kW, giving it a top speed of 115 km/h. Tire pressure can be regulated by the driver from inside the vehicle to suit terrain conditions. The primary mission equipment is an observation package mounted on an extendable mast. Sensors include a thermal imager, daylight camera and a laser rangefinder. Combined with the vehicle's GPS and inertial navigation system the operator can accurately mark targets or points of linterest and pass that data to the digital battlefield network. The sensor head of the observation package can also be removed and mounted on a tripod for concealed operation, as can the control unit from the vehicle should the crew want to use the entire system dismounted. Many Fenneks of the German Army are also equipped with Aladin miniature UAVs. LGS Fennek SWP (Stinger Weapon Platform) LGS Fennek MRAT (Anti-Tank Guided Missile Carrier) Various weapons can be fitted, such as a 12.7 mm machine gun for the Dutch reconnaissance version, a Rafael Spike anti-tank missile on the Dutch MRAT version or a 40 mm automatic grenade launcher (HK GMG) or Rheinmetall MG3 for the German vehicles. The Royal Netherlands Army also placed an order at the Turkish company Aselsan for 18 Raytheon Stinger surface-to-air missile launchers to be fitted on the Fennek. The launcher in this case is the Stinger Weapon Platform (SWP), with four Stinger missiles intended for mid-range air defence. The launcher can be controlled from on board the vehicle, or else remotely as part of a distributed air defense system. On the Dutch Fennek the primary weapon is the 12.7 mm machine gun. The vehicle is protected all-round against 7.62 mm rounds and additional armour can be added if the mission requires. The air conditioning system provides protection against nuclear, biological and chemical warfare and the crew compartment is protected against anti-personnel mines. German Bundeswehr LGS Fennek with HK GMG 40mm automatic grenade launcher Main Specifications: Weight: 9.7-10.4 tonnes Length: 5.71 m Width: 2.49 m Height: 1.79 m Crew: 3 Main armament: HK GMG 40 mm grenade autocannon or Rheinmetall MG3 (German version), M2HB 12.7 mm machine gun (Dutch versions) Secondary armament: Not applicable Engine: Deutz diesel 179 kW (239 hp) Power/weight: 18.5 kW/tonne Suspension: Selectable 4 wheel drive Operational range: 860 km Speed: 115 km/h - Operational History Both Germany and the Netherlands have deployed Fennek reconnaissance vehicles to Afghanistan in support of ISAF. On 3 November 2007, a Dutch Fennek was hit by an improvised explosive device killing one and wounding two other occupants. The vehicle and its crew were taking part in an offensive operation targeting the Taliban in the province of Uruzgan, Afghanistan. In another incident a German Fennek was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade. It's hollow charge jet penetrated the vehicle through the right front wheel rim, passed through the vehicle and blew the left door off the hinge. Thanks to the spall liner the crew sustained only negligible injuries. - Operators Current operators: - Germany German Army (Bundeswehr) - 222, to be increased to 248 - Netherlands Royal Netherlands Army - 365 Future operators: - Qatar Qatari Emiri Land Force - 32 Hope you guys enjoy the reading-!

  2. Hey, mah man here. Welcome back-!!! Glad to see you here again- Being busy lately, but will be around in forums (some projects) Looking forward to meet you again some time, catch you up later - Inch
  3. Hey guys,

    I just started modelling with 3DS Max 9 yesterday, planning to make something (simple at first, and then go for more intermediate/advanced ones, still need a practice though), but any ideas for that? 

    PR is mostly that i'm aiming for, couple of reading some tutorials in PR Forums would do :)

      Nicely done.

      Great software, that particular version.

      One of the best builds of 3Ds Max.

      Simple and uncluttered.

      I regret not investing in the 64 bit version.

      It is not the best for UV Mapping. (Look to adding Blender to your toolset to achieve great stuff)

      But it will ensure you make great strides in modelling and rendering.

      Even with the default Scanline renderer.

      I cant find any of the old tutorials. There used to be loads on Autodesk's "The Area".

      If I find any I will post them here.

  4. It depends on how much players online, i do believe some assets like AN/TWQ-1 Avenger, Gopher or even the M163 Hovets (VADS) sometimes still being solo-ed by the others, in least of 25 players online If you were in-game, full server in VG Coop (40 players max), might be better to use them wisely by having 2 man operating one Heavy AA vehicle (it's also depends on situation, whenever these are needed or not). Medium AA's in here, known to be an exception for soloing (depends on the server AND situations, again-) But, not all of them can do the ground fights or capability to do so (especially against infantry). Missile-carrier based AAV (like Gopher, Fennek SWP etc.) or ATGM (Spandrel, Shturm etc.) can't engage enemy infantries here (you're only getting RPG-ed instead if you fight them, a risky move indeed) The missile (SAM) as you know in here, made from High Explosive warheads (a lot of them and used against every aircraft threats). FYI, you still can engage enemies on the ground, but you need the skill to do it, it's not that simple as Rocket Techies did. "With perfect aim, you can kill bunch infantry with these, but not recommended to use it frequently, only a waste and better as a last resort if the enemy closing-in" - Inch "Revise the rules, maybe?"

  6. Nothing important here, not so much.


    But, i might getting to study for next week Midtest at campus, and... i'll be busy doing it for 2 weeks (my reason for not being online for couple of days ago, was preparing myself to do so)


    I'm also updating some project just few weeks ago, for PR. (And apparently still goes on by me) If you interested:

    "Check out profile of mine"


    See ya in two weeks, only be able to get touch to forums lately..

      Be good, but no pressure. ;)


  7. PR likely are not belong to one of them (my view) Hipfire: Always spread while moving, stop-by and even while crouching/proning Aiming Down Sights: Also spread, but while moving. Fires only spreads a little when crouching/proning And more importantly, No Crosshairs-! (Tactical Shooter as always as it should be like)
  8. Not much to see around here At least i fulfilled my promise, greetings from campus-
  9. Thats also noticed me for a bit.. Where's the Beirut when you need one? Did someone actually put out all the layouts from the map rotation? As i figure it out, the one that should be on the blacklist is the ALT one (STD is working fine, few days ago. The LRG? Should be the same) Can we put back one of those layouts in rotation again? Some people still wanted to play it - Inch
  10. Hey, man. Never actually got some notice of you getting return to the forums and PR. Will be looking forward to play with you again As m8 just said, they're some ppl still remembered you in past. But do not worry! And as always, take your time for your real-life, it is important! - Inch
  11. It's likely been great pleasure to be contributing at the community, i never actually regretted myself to do so. Having serious and fun times over PR Coop server, so many times and countless numbers of teamworks and epic gameplay, that i can't mention one by one... No doubts, best community to offer coop experience that the others, the best place to call as a family in gaming community. It's been like almost a year since 2016 (or 2 years), this community changes my view in terms of gaming. From Play4Free, to Battlefield 2 and last one, Project Reality, which i founded it interesting to play than the others. And also, the Coop Server is likely my first place to go, after some practicing the basics of the game (readed the manual, locally play and test it). I'll never forget the moment that i step-in to the server, and meet some guys in-game, new friends and some knowledges about the game. In the end, Happy Birthday, Veterans-Gaming. Thank you for being exist in the gaming community- Peace out, - Inch
  12. Well, good to see someone coming back for the forums. Welcome back and see ya around. Been noticed that tag of yours in-game ([MY]) defines you. "Greetings from neighboring country on SEA" - Inch
  13. Love both since can be served while hot/warm, some tea and coffee in my experience are best drink around some time at morning and midnights (when you planning not to sleep/trying to sleep Also, mention that couple of breads with butter are great as well served alongside those drinks.. (and maybe Crumpets, coz i haven't actually tasted that before.. ) Having caffeine too much isn't that good, can be addictive sometimes..(my head were like a bit dizzy when drink coffee frequently when woke up, i stopped just few months ago) unlike the tea, which is obviously healthy for some occasions- Anyways, it's just my judgement. Everything on what you taste on both two of those.. not all the same for some people, everyone has some points- - Inch
  14. Well, seems it's likely been a while not seeing you around. Welcome back to the forums - Inch
  15. Bump. Any idea how's Bamyan lately? Is it still on the blacklist after v. (for off-map flying with A-10, crashes the server)? That reminds me of, Silent Eagle ALT have possible crash when CO deploying UAV (Double said it, before i tried for it). - Inch
