What Kamrat Roger said, props for bringing original source as evidence!

If you want to de-Swedify the name you could use the name of the vehicle sans missile launcher, Tgb 11 plus the name of the missile, Rb 56.

That would come to Tgb11/Rb56 or some version thereof.

You could also use the actual name while omitting the 1111, as I believe specifying that is reduntant - there is no other terrain car used as a launcher platform: Pvtgb Robot 56.

instead of another unit of the day, you should release that dlc, imho (3 months since announcement?)

I guess we'll have to wait until winter sale. They normally coordinate with a sale, don't they?

Why would anyone want to "de-swedify" that beautiful name?
PS. If this game is supose to be authentic why would you use a fake name when you could have the real one :?:

We don't want to "de-Swedify", we'd like an alternate Swedish name.
We are always trying to keep a national name but, if possible, one or a nickname that can still be pronounce by everybody. And presently, this one is not just difficiult, it can't be pronounced ...

I've tried to find a nickname or some shorter abbreviation for the vehicle. I will keep looking but its name is the "PvPjTgb 1111 RBS56" with a RBS56. Somebody may have a better name for it.

And while we are on the subject on "de-swedify" names I ask yet again about the "AMOS". Its name was Grkpbv90120 or Granatkastarpansarbandvagn90120.

EDIT: Sorry, the 1111 is the designation for another anti tank cannon you put on these.
EDIT 2: I take it back again, I have no idea what this vehicle is actually called.

Year but as long as you guys don't make the ATGM carriers stealthy like the M3 Bradly recon then my suggestion fits, and it have not made the M3 uber only usable and it does what an ATGM carrier should kill tanks and APCs and survive by retreating out of range or shifting position so arty and/or bombs don't get's it killed

and your php have an error

If you refer to this annoying messgae:
Warning: Unexpected character in input: ''' (ASCII=39) state=1 in /home/wargamee/www/forum/cache/queue.php on line 3

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ':' in /home/wargamee/www/forum/cache/queue.php on line 3

I've already warned Focus about it, they're working on it.
We (Eugen) can't do anything about it on our end ... :(

That thing looks like some kind of golf cart with an ATGM strapped on it.
