Why no USSR Tigrs? Unacceptable! They would be okay with Tigr 6A with AGS-30... Or, as variant, Taifun-K would be neat.

The Mowag is basically an up-armored Humvee. It doesn't really deserve the armor it has considering the regular Humvee doesn't have it and certainly doesn't deserve the speed considering the regular Humvee is so much slower.

Yes, need MRAPs in Wargame. I don't want to just roleplay myself in a Bradley, I want to be able to roleplay myself on a MAXXPRO and a CAIMEN as well.

Think you have what it takes to enlist into the military? You sure about that?

While in wargame is not inf units separation system ( :) , that would be fun), and recognition of number of mens in group on transporting no need in more that some 1

The LAV was never used during the Cold War to transport infantry.

It's a shame the USAF didn't let them have one of their Chevy crew vehicles -

Seeing as this is a post for future mods, I would much rather see more advanced HMMWV series, since they made the bulk of the US Army utility fleet for three decades, and continue to do so to this day.

A M1114 HMMWV would be quite easy to model, just a 1 AV all around HMMWV with a 90kph top-speed, a 450km range, and a M2HB (or maybe we could even see a Mk. 19 ala the M1025s in game).

the only particular reason to even add an MRAP-like vehicle would be to have another 10pt wheeled transport option. given how little protection they actually have against regular forces, one may as well argue for increasing M939 or Ural truck options. but the ALB veterans insist on a "no".
