"Rolling-Thunder" ACE-AAF event !

Tankers it's time again to charge your batteries and get your hotel rooms if needed.
ACE and the AAF tank museum will be running Rolling Thunder scenarios with
team deathmatch type battles at the beginning and end of each day to warm up and cool down.
I've included the schedule and RT info as well as a link to the museum.
Also new to the battlefield is a longer train track section into a couple zones
so we have to watch where we are putting down our TX's between battles
as there will more than likely be train action going on throughout the day.
Trains at the AAF Tank-Museum

We will be conducting quick inspections to check the following:

Tank gives and receives hits.
Tank dies according to class.
IR emitter depth.
Apple obstructions.
Apple orientation.
Scale speed check with a tolerance of +2 mph ON road speed.

This is a STOCK apple configuration battle weekend unless the tank has a fixed structure in which case TFA is permitted.
The registration form is available below if you feel like getting a jump on things, just print/fill it out and bring it with you.

Looking forward to seeing some old friends and meeting some new tankers!!
If you have any questions please email me:
