Anniversary of the Battle of Tukayyid
« on: July 18, 2011, 07:04:47 PM »
I don't know if you guys know this or not, but the 20 year Anniversary of the Battle of Tukayyid is coming up.

This based on that publish date (Sept 1991) for the novel Lost Destiny that depicted the battle.

Here's to that sly bastard Fred Steiner. /raises glass
"Out of every 100 men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the One, One is a Warrior, and He will bring the others back." --  Heraclitus

Note how it says "The basis for the #1 animated TV series", then laugh

That is the main reason I'd like to see a Kodiak and Commando added. I'd like to see (or help create) a reenactment done from the MW2: Mercs ending.

I will be either the Mad Dog or Kodiak gladly... preferably the Kodiak, as he lasts longer ;) and it is a kodiak base kodiak!

*addition* on that note I want CoolJ to be the SJ Mad Dog pilots voice for my recreation of the MW2:GBL intro recreation I would like to do for the 72nd's homepage.

There's also a Centurion and a Zeus (both of which I wouldn't mind seeing in MWLL), at least I think that first one that goes down is a centurion and not a commando

Are you sure thats a Centurion? The image isn't too clear, and it looks way too small to be a Centurion. Also at the end its definitely an Awesome and not a Zeus since it has the dish thing on its head. And then there's another Catapult, Atlas, and a Mauler. The Mauler is the MW2 version which looks a little different then the TRO:3050 pic.

You have to understand the code of duty and honor that rules those who pilot these engines of destruction. Placing such an awesome weapon in the hands of an individual implies a similar gesture of trust

The final 4 are Zeus, Mauler, Atlas, Catapult but there's no Awesome.  If you pause the 52/53 second mark you can see it pretty clearly.  But I can agree that the first IS mech that goes down is just too blurry to tell if its a Centurion or a Commando.

My guess is it is a commando as you see it firing lasers, no autocannon rounds or lrms. I am fairly sure if it was a centurion he is going to fire off a few rounds of autocannon 10 before he goes down. My guess is a commando.

I stand corrected, that is a Zeus in there. The little head thing looked like the Awesome's antenna dish. Though admittedly it was blurry and hard to tell.

I'm pretty sure the first mech to go down is a Commando though. It doesn't have the crest on the head.

plus it must be a green pilot... trying to fire all those medium lasers while not yet in range. ;)
