      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

  1. If you have a look on the web site will find a Sherpa pickup in the picture named 78 Plymouth Volare' RAF Welford, UK These were purchased for use USAF wide..part of the Chrysler bailout in '77 I have been told that they also used Marina pickups but I have no evidence.
  2. Phil, Is this the vehicle you are meaning? Have a look at these links it is rescuing a Gladiator. If you put N5821a in google search and there is another picture. Regards, Don
  3. I don't think the vehicle in the picture is a Matador it looks more like a Crossley. I unfortunately have no idea what a Brownhall prime mover is, could it be a RAF slang for a Russian vehicle that no one could pronounce, so called a 'Brownhaul'? Hopefully the answer is out there some where!
  4. Tony, This looks like the right place to ask the question, the horizontal tank is the Bedford's engine fuel. If you are meaning a round vertically mounted tank that is a filter there should be two. The three booms would all be for fuel it is unlikely they would mix it just in case a mechanic put the wrong fluid in the wrong place. But as always he could be looking at something completely different than I am referring too. If you look at the Accurate Armour K48003 that shows the fuel tank behind the cab and K48007 shows the filters and the fuel tank has moved, hope this helps. Don
