No, I don't.  May be able to backtrack.  This was taken by a naval photographer, so maybe there is one in the Naval Historical Center files.
Don't be too hopeful, though.

This will be neat. I went to it about 5 years ago. I may actually be able to see it from my office.

I’ve spent half my life’s earning on wargames, women, and drink. The rest I wasted.

Thanks Bes, I'll see if I can work that into a transferable image. I might try etching it onto anodized aluminum...

How can you be so passionate about aircraft and yet make such a shite game  ;D

I actually have played any of the World of.... games except World of Tanks briefly but at the time it was poor with bigger tanks and more experienced people coming onto the server and giving you no chance to enjoy it. Also, it became clear it was going to be a pay to win game...though I honestly don't know if that actually came to fruition.

Anyone here play the World of games? What are they like now?

About seven years ago, I almost got a job with the World Of... people, as an instructional designer. That's the limit of my experience.

I *think* it was World of Tanks that Star was/is so heavily in to...wasn't it? He'd talked about it in the other forums and on the GH podcast a few times, if I remember right.

My friends and I play World of Tanks quite regularly on Xbone. I haven't spent a dime on it and have a good time. Am I uber powerful or even good at it... no. But with a bunch of friends, up to 5, you can form a platoon and play on the same side in matches. Helps the enjoyment quite a bit when you have backup.
I only play when my friends are on, but many of them play a lot more and so they are better and have more tanks. Only one or two have spent any money on the game.
