    M8 Light Armored Car

    Post by lockie on Sat Jan 03, 2015 5:36 pm

    Do we need this APC?

    As my point we do. There are two reasons to implement it.
    1. This is a light armor, which will be very good to add more atmosphere to the game as additional detail for the battle.
    2. There is possibility to make two types of the new missions: reconnaissance, protect column. Or just simply add this APC to the enemy attack group as additional frag Smile

    There are at least two reasons don't implement it.
    1. Missions for this vehicle will be a very specific
    2. M8 could be a very easily replaced with M3 halftruck.

    Actually it would be good to have more APCs on the Allies and Soviet side. The Germans have tons in the game but the opposite side very little. We need the Cromwell true enough but also the Churchill Mark VII with its 75 mm gun.

    AHA! Dear lockie, It seems I have send you the model of the M8 greyhound.

    I also agree to add allied APC. But I think we do not have to make them playable. This can reduce a lot of work. After all, they are only a supporting role in this game (Including the truck, motorcycle, AT guns and so on).

    You could also make another Allied APC for some missions (scouting etc), the M20 Armored Utility Car, if you just remove the turret of the Greyhound and replace it with a .50 cal in a different mounting Smile

    It could carry four men in addition to the crew, so about 6 per platoon seem alright.

    Few weeks does nothing. Could u enclose a couple of the real WW2 pictures how Cromvell will look like? And make only first LOD, coz I'm pretty sure will73 will re-adjust the source model Smile

    Легкий бронеавтомобіль М8
    Light Armored Car М8
    Зараз залишилось добавити каністри, амуніцію.
    Presently it remained to add tanks, accoutrement.
