ORBAT of a French Light Cavalry Regiment of the 80s/early 90s.

The Light Cavalry Regiment is an all-wheeled formation based around the duo AMX-10RC light tank and VAB HOT Mephisto APC
#History #Military #frencharmy #80s #90s
The regiment is composed of a Command and Services squadron, x3 Armoured squadrons and an Anti-Tank squadron for a total of 840 personnel, and 268 vehicles, including 36 AMX-10RC and 12 VAB HOT
Looking at the other French tank formations of the time. The dedicated anti-tank formation equipped with the VAB HOT seems to be unique. Other tank formations utilize the 4x4 with a MILAN ATGM attached

This will be my thread for the #Uncool50 rundown of 2022! My favorite 50 formally released singles between December 1976 to now.

Come along for the ride it’ll be fun! My personal guardrails for it were a big help w/ hard choices (see below)

See here for the rules and other players. Then come back each night to see my next entry - some obvious, some niche, and everything in between!

Much thanks to @nonoxcol for getting this going and giving it clarity!
Chronological order, so not the lowest/highest ranked, but the first (and a trailblazer!). It still sounds like little else and can make me cry. #RIP you legend

The bad metal cover remakes continue with Denet, right image is #dalle2 AI. The AI version is a lot freakier. #HeavyMetal #Metal Image

Seguro que habréis visto este sello en muchos discos en vuestra vida (cuando se compraban 😅) Y seguro que, más que disuadiros, os llamó la atención. Pues tiene, como todo, una historia. Hoy, en @HistorietaLa : cuando el rock se sentó en el banquillo.
#parentaladvisory Image
O más bien, cuando el rock se defendió como gato panza arriba de la mojigatería y la estupidez. Y lo hizo en la persona de Dee Snider, que era y es cantante de Twister Sister y aparte de ser un personaje, demostró clase, inteligencia y mucha sorna.
#deesnider #parentaladvisory Image
Situémonos. Es 1985 y la música popular pasa por un momento dulce para el rock. Grandes grupos de los 70 siguen en activo, y nuevas bandas han venido a revitalizar el sonido duro. Una de ellas, los peludos Twister Sister, divertidos a la par que enérgicos.

Hoy es un día triste para los que tuvimos la fortuna de disfrutar la música de los gloriosos 80s

#RIP #TonyLewis #TheOutfield

La generación que marcó un antes y un después y que vio nacer grandes leyendas musicales, algunas de ellas aún vigentes.
Los icónicos #80s, con atuendos tan coloridos y extraños combinados con peinados locos que nos hacían ver raros, deformes y ahora que lo vemos, hasta algo ridículos y que nos convirtieron en el hazme reír de nuestros padres y abuelos.
Ahora recordamos con cariño y mucha nostalgia esa época en la que nos preocupaban cosas tan triviales como estar al pendiente de nuestra canción favorita para grabarla y hacer un casete con “playlists” únicos, muchas veces con dedicatoria especial.

* An #80s/#90s #CDChoice
* A shiny new #21stCenturyChoice
* An original-instrument #PeriodChoice

All leading to my #TopChoice.
3/ It's quite a challenge to satisfy all the symphony's demands. Let's remind ourselves of its special qualities. What makes a great performance?

@WhoWouldWin13 Oh heck yes!!!!!!!!!!
@WhoWouldWin13 Before I get into this, I have to say that I LOVE both characters. I grew up watching both cartoons. This one of the best battle ideas yet!
@WhoWouldWin13 Goliath does have a flight advantage, which is going to, on first look, pose a serious problem for Lion-O, who is used to fighting opponents on the ground. Goliath could potentially grab huge objects or bladed weapons, fly up and then drop them on Lion-O.

However, Lion-O

Melanie - Lay Down (Candles in the Rain (1970)

3 Mins

#QAnon #70s #80s #Groove #Rock #Funk #Music #Spiritual #Prophecy
We hold the candles up high.. we smile up to the doom and gloomer birds.

I've always loved this song since I was a child, and heard it recently. it gives me chills

notice how we are so close in unity that we bleed into each others' wounds. ...
We also all caught the same disease which is we were brainwashed by the mainstream media, but at the time this song is talking about we break free!

Some pray and some sing THE song of Peace.

it is all good
