Today we bring you yet another update, only small but brings PR more up to date, and gives it a fresh feel, in the form of a new Menu Screen.

This image won the Army Experience and Best Overall Image awards at the Army Photographic competition 2007.

I managed to get clearance from the British Army to use it as our Menu Screen.




It was taken by LCpl Ian Chapman, a serving TA Soldier whilst on Duty in Afghanistan in 2007.

It is named:

"Casevac"


An injured soldier is stretchered on board a Chinook helicopter for evacuation. The guy in the foreground is receiving a message on his radio.

For further Photo's please visit his site @

I chose this Photograph as I believe it depicts "Realism"

Anyway here you go:

I like it a lot :)

Just wondering whether or not we could have the name of the picture and LCpl Chapman's name on bottom of the screen? I'm aware we don't need to for copyright purposes but it seems kind of fitting that it should be there, not quite sure why.

Also, does that mean there will be no more Abrams with a beer cooler on top? :( :p

Nice photo... realistic, anonymous and plain* (IMO). Looks really nice.

*I'm not sure did I use this word properly :|

Plain may not be the word... Subtle is more like it. And I like subtle. Awesome picture. Very stylish. Classy, I'd say.

Great pic, I like.

Shame it doesn't depict anything that happens in the game. A Chinook, people queuing for an aircraft lolz!, Soldier with short sleeves. Still a mint pic tho.

@ Uk force, can you post the original too, so those of us that will miss it can have it forever?

I think the word works fine,

it isn't over the top, very appropriate.

This bloke as a couple of good pics on his site.

Love the photo. But after carefully studying the in game one and the OG, i think i prefer the original, with the detail on the whole body of the soldier, body armour, camo and face being much more visible. Otherwise the whole image except for a small patch of sand all being blurred. I find it is the contrast between the semi detailed single soldier and blurred mass soldiers and heli in the back ground that make the image interesting. When, all becomes blurred i believe the image looses most of what makes its special.

This is the OG version:

However I commend you, UK_Force, for finding and choosing this particular great image, and i totally agree with you that it strongly depicts realism, great find and hope you understand where i am coming from.
Nice one.

great picture! its more...peaceful then the last one. Also, are there plans to change the "toxic piss yellow" theme for the text and border and change it to a more friendly color like a gray or light red, maybe a light bronze to fit that picture?

Oh wow, I went all testing and only just now realized the guy in the front is facing TOWARDS the camera...

lol... Hard to tell by the menu, but not so much on the website to his photography... wow

Awesome though :)

Great looking background!! Very well done :).
That "old" one got pretty boring, come to think of it :p.

what happened to this type of menu?

*youtube vid*
Hehehe. Don't you just love the replies to that vid :D.

Yes, it's a fake menu. A while ago I was just trying out some stuff. Didn't mean to make this at first really, lol. But at a certain point I was like, let's try to make a menu of it, see how it would look. Then I thought, I'll put in on pixeltube, hehe.

It's all done with Premiere (so no bf2 and no OFP). The movement of the mouse cursor are a bunch of keyframes.

Well, I enjoyed it :lol:
