    question, got pretty curious

    how did FBR manage to get M1 Abrams and VTOLs? Nearly everything high-tech was destroyed by the Combine.
    Uniforms and weapons are kind of understandable, they're able to be crafted easily with simple materials
    but tanks and such literally need factory-made parts, and a shit ton of them too.

    it was just a old pickup dressed up as a tank
    they were actually shooting 40mm grenades from a almost broken m203

    good way of thinking is the alplands way of thinking: Show not tell, it could be easily put up in a loredoc or something like that but embracing the unknown fuels the chaotic nature of the events- it could be perceived that anything could happen in Alplands.

    I’d go as far as to say we’re more akin to normal hl2 than the main server only in that the occupation is very similar to how it’s presented in the games, as opposed to a more lengthy version presented on the server

    the combine make a great many mistakes, and in the end are vanquished by the events at white forest (though not many know of the details)

    the vtols were a modification of the Blackhawk design, incorporating new technology, mass produced in the post war period as the primary air fighting vehicle of the federal government.

    oh ya and the 7 hour myth imagine believing Wallace Breen (who?) signing a surrender deal who would even recognise his authority

    this is not true, not true at all, nothing in the game suggests this (quite the opposite in fact)

    and besides, the tank was at least 40 years old, and the V-TOL Blackhawks were based on already existing designs being conceptualized today in the real world
