I seen one blow up in 1974 on the Hill above my hometown. We were having a Garage sell for the explorer scouts AKA Vallejo Fire Cadet program when we heard a god awful squealing screeching sound and look over at Interstate 80 that comes down into my hometown when it blew up. It was a pretty small fireball and HUGE Black Mushroom smoke cloud. Being the Cities Cadets and more less witnessing it we got to go up and help. We got to help mark remains for investigators. They had to close the Interstate because 2 or 3 of the Marines were splattered all over the Center divide. Smelly, Ready to upchuck for the first half hour, then they pulled us off the job as soon as the Marine's showed up and lost their minds. They were pissed we were even let in the Perimeter. I was pretty relieved they sent us on our way to tell you the truth. I still see the body parts in my head. One of pilots helmets had half a head in it, One boot had the leg and foot still attached. The intestines of the ones that hit the center divider were all over the guard rails that run along the divide. Who was the dumbass that took us up there ? My Dad ! He started the program and there were no rules then. We used to ride in City Fire Trucks and help fight fires too. Awesome experiences, but could you imagine trying to pull those things in today's politically correct world ?

Only Info I can find on it right here.

That is Borges ranch. Most of their property is now homes. I went to school with the kids.
We got arrested in Jr. High for rolling down the hill on the other side of the freeway in his oat feed.
Had race riots at school so we played hooky and went up into the Ranch and didn't even think about
what we were doing. 10 of us. That is actually only half the wreckage. It split in two and the other
half was further south.
9 guys died, 6 reservist and 3 crew.

I do not like telling this story but I will in the sake of idaho's I will...

When I was in iraq we were pulling QRF relief for another platoon one night when we get a frantic call around 2AM about two black hawks going down. First thing that came to our minds were they were attacked so we go out full patrol. Upon arrival it was clear they had ran into each other and it was a gruesome site! We had to look for bodies (11 total) in pitch darkness with out NOD's (Night vision). A friend of mine that was in my platoon was helping me when while he was walking close to me he tripped and fell. He turn over to find he had tripped over a fallen soldier that was in the wreck and there was so much carnage to fathom :( Sometimes I sit and think about those poor soldier family's and wished it could have been different for them. They never figured out how they crashed into each other.

I hope not..... but he would not be here if he was
Sure he would.......as a matter of fact him being thrown from a falling Blackhawk would explain a lot.

Dunno why but the game was pissing me off. I felt like punching the monitor. Staying sober is tougher then I thought.

In the latest episode of “Inside DICE”, Alan Kertz answers your tweeted questions on balancing and more: Inside DICE: Tweets from the Battlefield

Alan Kertz is the Core Gameplay Designer behind a lot of great in-depth blog posts published here at the Battlefield Blog. In this episode of “Inside DICE”, he takes a handful of your most tweeted questions and answers them personally.

Keep the questions coming here on the blog (or send them to @battlefield) and we’ll do more round-ups like this. Now let’s dig into the questions and some answers we think you will find illuminating.

1. Where did you start before working for DICE?
(Asked by @minikanelive)
Alan answers: “I was actually quite lucky to enter the industry directly working for DICE on Battlefield 2142. Of course, I didn’t just start cold turkey, I’d previously been a member of the Battlefield 1942 modding community where I developed tools, levels, and mods. Some of my work was featured in mods like Eve of Destruction, Desert Combat, and Point of Existence. Scholastically my background is a Computer Science degree from a university in the US where I grew up. While the CS degree wasn’t a real influence on me getting the job, I do find that understanding the concepts of coding is a definitive edge when working as a game designer.”

2. SKS bullet drop is very pronounced. Bug or intended? It ruins my immersion whenever i see it.
(Asked by @shimme01)
Alan answers: “The SKS has a relatively low velocity round when compared to other DMR and Sniper weapons. Over the same distances the SKS round will drop further and lose more energy since it’s a smaller caliber round. The SKS is range limited, though it makes up for this by being mobile, fast firing, and deadly in mid-range. For longer range engagements I would step up to something like the M39 EMR or the QBU-88 sniper from Back to Karkand.”

3. In comparison to the P90, the MP7 is a bit outclassed. Maybe consider reducing the MP7′s first shot recoil and increasing the P90′s?
(Asked by @kryptikspaniard)
Alan answers: “The MP7 has a lower overall muzzle climb, a faster reload (especially from empty), and a higher rate of fire than the P90. Finally, the MP7 is rather easily obtained via COOP play, while the P90 comes later on at Rank40. Obviously they’re both similar weapons, and I feel the subtle differences between the two weapons makes it an interesting choice for players. Some players clearly prefer the P90, others prefer the MP7.“

4. Do scopes have an effect on vertical recoil? Didn’t know if the weight of the scope factored in? It’s not in the descriptions.
(Asked by @friedpixels)
Alan answers: “Another great question. Scopes only change two variables: how much zoom they provide and how fast the weapon aims down the sights. A high zoom scope, like a 6x rifle scope, will be slow, and a low zoom sight, like a red dot sight, will be fast. There are no additionally effects on the weapons’ handling, no changes to recoil or accuracy.”

5. So a gun that has just a suppressor and a sight has better aimed accuracy than one with a foregrip & suppressor?
(Asked by @KILLAnthonyMan)
Alan answers: “The short answer is Yes. The long answer is Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssssss. The explanation though, is more interesting. A foregrip carries a small aimed accuracy penalty, if you’re trying to get the best absolute accuracy you can with the weapon, a suppressor will give you better aimed accuracy. However, combining the Suppressor and the Foregrip will give the weapon the same accuracy as if you had no accessories, while also reducing recoil. It’s my recommendation that you only forgo a foregrip (see what I did there?) if you demand the absolute best accuracy you can obtain. Generally, inside 100m a weapon with a foregrip is still plenty accurate to hit consistently on target, and it will be easier to control.”
