I would follow family tradition and join the army. Airforce are noobs!

I'd fly a bomber-like fighter, maybe even man a turret or two. Hell, if they put me in a B-17, I'm mounting my own .50 cal in the cockpit so I can shoot too!

Why?

I'd personally like to be a fighterpilot in a Brewster B-239 against the Russians in the Continuation War.

My other half's grandad got posted to a flak battery at Scapa Flow and saw zero action. The wife remained in Watford and not only got bombed to buggery (500lber in the rose bed) but caught some shrapnel in her calf promenading the baby.

I would be a flak gunner in Scapa Flow. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

There was a thread the other day that mentioned a 'factory rep' from a Matilda tank factory in a Soviet army group that went from Stalingrad to Berlin. I definately wouldn't want that job.

P-40 pilot in 75 Sqn RAAF http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Or Bren Gunner in 9th Division AIF, or artilleryman. Also would love to fly a plethora of different planes/positions: Bostons, Catalinas, Halifaxes, Kittyhawks, Mustangs, Fokker DXXI's and G1's!, pilot, navigator, gunner, or get a job flying captured Italian equipment http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif (they used acid after all!)

You'd never get me into the Navy though http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

I'd be the guy wishing someone somewhere would pull their head out so I could quit trying to kill people who are trying to kill me when we have no reason to want to in the 1st damn place.

Y'all trying to romanticize something that was without romance. We play at a game sitting in airconditioning sipping a beer or munching a snack.

If I was really there it wouldn't matter a timkers damn to me what branch, what theater. All I would want is to go home to my girls with all my parts still attached. I imagine most rational folk here would want the same. If you really were there and was enjoying yourself then you should be cloned because you are are a rare and disturbed breed and the military can't get enough of you.

True Udidtoo. I hope I didn't sounds like that, but all I was saying which role I'd want to do if I was joinin up that time. Cos I'm proud of those blokes and would have been honoured to fight alongside them.

Naw your post fine HRanger. Its just really early/late here and I'm a really unpleasant mixture of medicated and bitter over a disease that has robbed me of my ability to enjoy this game any more.

Which is why I don't post here anymore and which is why I'm going to go back into silent mode before that bitter/meds goes any further.

Keep on enjoying this game young man and and everyone else in this thread. Playing at what if is a part of the fun of doing what we do with this simm and I miss it terribly.
