I suspect it was one of your sources confusing the designation for the transport variant but if the M4A1 is a real Austrian-operated bit of kit then that's a huge boon for motorised spec and uniqueness.
I discovered it here. It's Swiss, but I've not been able to find anything else about it.
FrangibleCover wrote:Also I thought we were going for Luftlandesoldaten. Was it changed due to putting them in motorised spec as well? That's fair enough.
Part of it is that I simply don't think "Luftlandesoldaten" sounds cool enough, the second is that the Luftlandesoldaten and Gebirgsjäger in the proposal ended up looking identical, so I folded them into one.

Perhaps giving the Jagdkommando '80 the FAL and the '90 either the AUG/AUG HBAR or the TMP/AUG HBAR would be nice, making one squad the better for open or forested areas and the other better in towns.
Basically, I realized I'd written them up to be using the MP88 so I made a C-CAT version with the AUG without checking to see if there was any reason to actually keep the A-CAT version.
FrangibleCover wrote:A stylistic thing but why are the '90s infantry separated from the '80s infantry and the '90s support teams left intermixed?
I consider 90's infantry - that is, units that already exist, but with modernized weapons and "90" tacked onto their names, a distinct category from units that just aren't available until after 1990.

Very Good optics recon tank-destroyer with a ROF of 12 is pretty neat. A Very Good optics recon tank-destroyer with an autoloaded M68 is also pretty neat!

That was the original idea, but I changed it around so that the HMMWV-alike was the 4x4 and the truck transport was the 6x6. I figured it might make it easier to sell Eugen on the idea that Austria and Switzerland should get to use truck transports.

I think I was considering to make the F/A-18D into a multipurpose bomber akin to the Norwegian F-16, to complement the C's air superiority purpose, but I left the weapon slot blank because I couldn't think of what kind of bomb to give it. As for the Saab 105Ö, Sweden has one, and once upon a time it was apparently not unless or something?
