    Baikonur was first revealed and pictured by an CIA U-2 all the way back in August of 1957 actually, and they weren't really aware of where it could exactly be aside from it probably being accessible via railway - so "all" the pilot had to do after taking off from Lahore is head to Tashkent and...

    Well if it makes you feel any better, there's hundreds of solid-propellant ICBMs deployed out there for years on standby with actual bombs on top of them - they don't mind sitting loaded for a while.

    General Dynamics is teasing a new M1 Abrams variant and it seems like they're getting edgy headlights too: https://gdls-nextgen.com/abrams-next-gen-2/ Looks like they're slapping an 30mm autocannon on top - M230 variant most likely (the same kind used on the AH-64 Apache), and the emphasis on...

    Question What games are you playing?

    ED is still peak space combat for me - no other game really comes close to nailing the visuals, sounds, and overall feel of flying in space like it does; but unfortunately that's really where most of the good things end because FDev was never really capable of creating interesting gameplay...

    Project ReShade for Orbiter D3D9 (WIP Thread)

    Judging by your screenshot, you've installed ReShade in your main Orbiter folder (the one containing the usual D3D7 orbiter.exe and Orbiter_ng.exe) - you're NOT supposed to install it there; instead you should point the ReShade installer to the orbiter.exe located in the Modules/Server folder as...

    Question What games are you playing?

    Thanks to FDev and the shitstorm that ED Odyssey was, my bar for space games is so low it may as well reside in earth's inner core; so I'll prolly end up giving Starfield a shot (will def wait a month or two at least to avoid the most egregious bugs Bethesda will no doubt include as part of...

    by far the most beautiful MBT design I've seen in the last decade - even though the production model (assuming we ever see one) will likely end up ruined over the years with dozens of attachments like the M1A2 SEPv3

    Question What games are you playing?

    I got into Horizon back when it came out on PS4 due to its interesting setting and art style (I'm a sucker for sci-fi/fantasy blends) - but the graphics alone on Forbidden West (on PS5 at least) are more than enough of a reason to try it out; it's probably the only game where I've spent literal...

    Hardware Planet Textures Storage

    I've had an SSD+HDD setup on my older gaming laptop and had multiple Orbiter installations on both - in my personal experience the difference was minimal to none; the only thing I noticed was an occasional momentary stutter near highly complex planetary elevation (like HRSC Mars for example)...

    I highly doubt Hungary would even remotely think of doing something like that, not because Orbán is a rational individual (he isn't for the most part), but because it would result in complete collapse of practically everything Hungary has been building in last decade and more. It's an...

    Not like Wagner is capable of engaging with a near-peer adversary anyway, as demonstrated at the Battle of Khasham in 2018 https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/24/world/middleeast/american-commandos-russian-mercenaries-syria.html Archived link in case of paywall: https://archive.is/dyjgi

    So far all this speech is done is show why Russians must never be appeased and why most of eastern NATO member states will always look with suspicion towards western EU attempts to reach a 'compromise' with Russia. This isn't about NATO or its expansion, this is hardcore historical revisionism...
