We had T-155 ,M115,M101,M114 and M116 laying aroud and i have trained on an local modification of M29 mortar... Other squads had 106mm m30 and 120 mm mortar too... My battalion actually linked to 3th biggest army corps so we even had mlrs , 35mm oerlikon aa , rheinmetall rh202 aa and radars too...

What does that mean?

Hydraulics, Pneumatics, and Vacuum powered systems.  Basically anything with hoses, instead of wires.

Oh, you're Turkish Army.  Sorry, I thought you're American Army stationed in Turkey, because your English is so good.  (No offense to Turks.)  I went through there, but I don't remember it very well.  Pretty much got to see the flightline, billet, and BX.  Never actually seen a T-155.

Love the Oerlikons.  Probably my favorite Autocannon is the 20mmOerlikon,  Got to play with some 35mms in the AAA config.  Well, when I say "Play," I got to stand there with the clamshells over my ears, and watch the AAA boys play with them.  Return springs instead of Hydraulic recoil buffers with Accumulators, like the 120mm Mortar bolted to the floor of a gutted APC.

Yeah, US yanks like to be special, so we don't call anything what it is.  An SPG was a "Gun: Motor Carriage" in the World Wars, and now we call a Self Propelled Mortar a "Mortar Carrier."  Uncle Sam want's you, but he'll mess with your head.

Talking shop.  Honestly, a DI responsible for training an entire Artillery Battalion outranks a field tech that trained on a Mortar Carrier once.  If I wanted to 1-up him, I'd lie.

You guys haven't spent a lot of time around Vets, apparently.  It's like almost no actual War Stories, because those tend to be traumatic, and trigger our PTSD.  Instead, we talk shop.  Rice-boys brag, and try to one-up each other.

Oh yeah, and Gamers, too.

Lancelots used to function well as a rage-finder module :crazy:

I like the idea of a rangefinder scope, but I can’t quite picture what that would look like on console. 
I guess you could set it up so that if you put your crosshairs on a target using the scope, all projectile weapons would calculate their bullet drop automatically, but there would have to be a delay before it kicked in or it would be abused.

Honestly, it would just be a number that popped up in your HUD, when you're scoped in.  Like many other games (Armored Core comes to mind) that has Range as part of their UI.  I wouldn't want it to Auto-aim for me (Like the FCS on a Abrams) just tell me what the range is, so I know how much to hold over on the Reticle.

Do you know what hurts me the most? İ could be rolled as a Lieutenant from start but İn Turkish military every person with a 4 year Bachelor degree is basically reserve officer so when your time comes Government randomly draws names and send them directly as a lieutenant (after boot camp) with a really thick salary for 1 year mandatory service ... But my name wasn't in the list so i have completed my service as a sergeant(1 month boot camp 2 month corporal 3 month sergeant)... İ could buy the motorbike , pc and new cellphone with that salary ..
