You've got to respect their sense of style though, basically broadcasting on national TV "We have now overthrown the government and taken control of Tailand. Sorry for the inconvinience."

Play, I think that a PRMM map based on a bloodless coup would be rather dull, but thats just my opinion.

The key to modernising any weapon is covering them in glue and tossing them in a barrel of M1913 rails until they look "Modern" enough.

Many thanks to [R-DEV]Adriaan for the sig!

Ah, Sorry I normally assume that coups are not bloodless, well... you could still make it were everyone walks around a city in Thailand for no reason! That would be fun!

Wow, how spontaneous. So I guess Thailand is a military dictatorship now? Anyways, there are no new character skins in my map, as new skins would mean both sides have new skins. Not good.

That is a good point only a few people died and then they announced they had taken over mind you they have like 25 some since 1950 so they have gotten good at it.

From what I heard on PBS’s the News Hour the prim minister was unpopular because he had exempted himself from paying taxes and was accused of buying votes during the last election.

“There's been tremendous concern and frustration over his concentration of power, his concentration of power with regard to enriching a small number -- at least this is the allegation -- a small number of businessmen and, indeed, cronies close to him. And this was kind of brought to a head by his sale of telecommunications assets recently to a Singapore company, a sale that is alleged to have been done without him having to pay taxes. And that was a sale of, in many people's view, national assets.”-From http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/asia/...and_09-19.html

Usualy play as KlutzPal
