      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".

:owww:

 

Which TUSK panels?  The ones around the crew hatches, or the ERA blocks?  I have a feeling these things come out of the factory in sand, as I've seen a number of US armoured vehicles in NATO camo wearing them when they were rushed into service.

See?  If you'd said that earlier, we might have had a clue :P

Everything comes from the factory in NATO green. TUSK kits are usually painted prior to the unit receiving them but when you order a single replacement part (not just panels but anything really) it's in NATO green.  That's how you see the checkerboard reactive armor sets. 

 

Basically - new complete kit is sand colored, replacement parts are green.

 

Hope that helps, I have all the info you need if you got anymore questions

I've been in the Army for the last 12 years, on Bradleys (M3 variants) but spend a lot of time around tanks, and my next door neighbor is a tanker.  Plus as a modeler I'm always paying attention to little things like paint color and weathering patterns lol
