USSR, Late November, 1941. Based on the account by reporter Vasiliy Koroteev that appeared in the Red Army's newspaper, Krasnaya Zvezda, shortly after the battle, this is the story of Panifilov's Twenty-Eight, a group of twenty-eight soldiers of the Red Army's 316th Rifle Division, under the command of General Ivan Panfilov, that stopped the advance on Moscow of a column of fifty-four Nazi tanks of the 11th Panzer Division for several days. Though armed only with standard issue Mosin-Nagant infantry rifles and DP and PM-M1910 machine guns, all useless against tanks, and with wholly inadequate RPG-40 anti-tank grenades and PTRD-41 anti-tank rifles, they fought tirelessly and defiantly, with uncommon bravery and unwavering dedication, to protect Moscow and their Motherland.
My all time favorite high cheese movie, that anyone who has ever gamed with me has been subjected to! I saw this master piece at the army theater on FT Lewis Wa with a bunch of other GIs (non-stop laughter and thrown popcorn ). It is still a guilty pleasure!

Over the last 50 years (giver or take) one of the most commonly used alien archetypes are Cat-people, call them Alslan (Traveller), Kilrathi (Wing Commander) or Kzinti from both novels and (Star Trek) and a host of others. They all have several traits in common with Earth felines besidestheir obvious resemblance. The Pride/Clan social structure seems to be themost common form of government with a monarch of some type at the topbut he/she is still very much subject to how the clan leaders feel . They are usually quite xenophobic and territorial. Their technology is usually on par with humanity with some unique culturally old tech weapons held on to, justbecause. This of course makes them interesting and fun to run. They alsoin many cases, (perhaps due to their clan structure) quite often go rouge either as an individual or up to an entire clan. Often this can be as a means of credible deniability for their central government or they just got pissed off
MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM CHAR'S COUNTERATTACK
All the good parts
The Golden Company was a sellsword company active in Essos. They were one of the largest and most skilled sellsword companies in the Free Cities, consisting of 20,000 men, horses, and war elephants. They had the reputation of never breaking a contract, which is quite uncommon among mercenary organizations. Their most recent captain was Harry Strickland. Their banner displays a cluster of gold skulls hanging from a red spear on a burgundy field. The Golden Company's forces were all but completely destroyed during the Battle of King's Landing, leaving their status as an organization uncertain. If there was ever a military unit in literature with more of a build up and less of a showing, I can't think of one! They did worse than the Iraqi Republican Guard!Golden Company

The last ten years has lead to this moment, in my opinion, one of the best of the Marvel series and one that ends the epic story. Thanks Stan! Excelsior!
"Our world is changing. The mass extinction we feared... has already begun... and we are the cause. We are the infection. But like all living organisms, the earth unleashed a fever to fight this infection. Its original and rightful rulers... the Titans. For thousands of years... these creatures have remained in hiding around the world. And unless all the Titans are found... our planet will perish, and so will we. They are the only guarantee that life will carry on."— Dr. Emma Russell
