Mostly white. Too much snow.
A hunter stalks a bear and shoot, but misses. The bear begins to run the hunter following. Then he shoots again, misses again, the bear turns 90 degrees to the right. The hunter follows and reloads, then shoots again, misses again, the bear turns another 90 degrees. The persistent little hunter still folllow, shoot, and this time hits and kills the bear, only to discover, he is where he first missed the bear.
What is the colour of the bears skin?

Again an easy one: none. Rocket and Jet tech was developed by the germans, onlythey used it in WWII, the allies sacked the facilities and benefited from the german r&d.
Which was the only way a Sherman could tak out a Tiger?

Aircraftman.

T-34 in all of its variants from short 76 to long 85 was the best tank of WW II, period.

Sherman vs Porsche Tiger, Kill arc was 1 o'clock to 11 o'clock at 500 meters or closer with angle of incidence impact of 15 % using tungsten cored APBC ammunition from a 76 mm x 53 calibre gun. Firefly had double that range.

I said Commisoned, therefore an Officer. The correct answer is Pilot Officer

Douglas Bader, if i remember correctly. Had an accident and his feet didn't recover quite enough so he wasn't allowed to fly. He had them cut off and learned to board and fly the plane with the tin legs. (Had to do it in less than 2 minutes to be allowed to fly.)
A little expansion on the Tiger theme: Sherman had to shoot from less than 500m but Tiger could shoot at 1500
T-34 is the Father of whole generations of tanks, BUT if you see the kill quota, it's 3-4 to 1 in favor for the Tiger. The T-34 was simply outclassed, but many crews rammed the Tigers, so both tanks exploded. BUT there were only a few Tigers, and endless T-34's.

Who was "The Desert Fox"?

EDIT: About the Gloster: You mean by entered service entering the experimental squadron. It never saw combat in WWII. You have to be more precise with the questions.

Wrong, Thunderbolt is usally referred to as Warthog, But BUFF (Big Ugly Fat F***er) refers to the B-52.

I don't know, and seems i can't find it on the Net, so please tell me!

In relation to the Thunderbolt , I was reffering to the WWII Fighter, aka the P-47

Ok the T-65 X-Wing, aswell as the T-16 Skyhopper and the T-47 Snowspeeder were made by Incom.

Easy, defeating the Borg, but the Borg threat didn't come and the project was put on hold. That was untill the Dominion Threat came about. The Defiant is offical classed as an Escort Vessel

What other monoplane fighter, apprat from the Spitfire and Hurricane was used by the RAF during the Battle of Britain?

The Defiant. Originally intended to take out enemy fighters by superior firing arcs, they got slaughtered due to lack of forward firing weapons, manouverebility and speed. Later they were used as night interceptors, following the principle four eyes see more than two. Still later they were fitted with radar. They were superbly suitd for the role, being able to manouver into the blind spot of the german bombers defensive guns and using her own turret delivering the killing blow.

Now you've got me. The special system is a "ghosting array", it's in the pod between the nacelles at the back, being there to as great a distance as possible from the crew (UNhealthy radiation). It creates some form of ripples in space, distorting sensors and making a targeting solution virtually impossible. It's the federations equivalent for a cloaking device, but in respectation with the treaty of Algeron(? not sure about this one).

Do you know why production of more Souvereign class ships has been postponed?

Broadsword?
- Production was halted to the favor of cheaper, smaller, simpler ships which could be constructed faster. War-time-economy.

The greatest soldier ever: charismatic commander of U.S. forces in WWII. Redeployed his forces over 100+ kms within 48 hours and attacked from march. Who is meant?

The Broadsword, while appearing in the WC Movie didn't appear in WC I. It first appeared in either Secret Missions I or II (WC I addons) or WC II at the latest.

It's either Eisenhower or Patton
