OK, how about plans for trimarans (experimental right now) and also experimental, the MOB. As far as DD-X and CG-X programs scheduled for 2011, I believe they may opt to be nuclear since they will be using future tech electric-drive propulsions along with on board laser and microwave weapons (lots of electricity) although chemical lasers are more efficient.

YOu got me on those last two. I've copied the notes into my "to-do" section and will get back to you guys on it when it's decided and set. I would assume that all of these make it in but the ASDS has been discussed a few times and is going to cause some problems... anyway, I'll keep you informed on these.

Chris, don't worry about it, you have enough to do. There will always be time for patches, additional equip. later. Really I only mentioned these to see if the 2010 threshold would be surpassed. I have my answer. Still the thought of the Mobile Offshore Base making it in the initial game would be most intriguing. Thanks for your attentiveness.

PzH-2000 Panzerhaubitze
Type: 155MM SELF PROPELLED HOWITZER
Origin: Europe (Germany)
In-Game Availability: 1998 Tech Level
Unit Info: 18 units per Battalion; crew of 5
Cost Per Battalion $ 162 million (US); 32 days to build/train
Movement: 60 km/h speed, 420 km per fuel load
Indirect Fire Range: 40 km (52 caliber gun)

General Description: A bit expensive to build, but generally the best all-around tracked artillery unit until the Crusader becomes available at tech-year 2008. The higher cost and longer build-times may make it more popular in the wealthier regions, however.

here's something very interisting for PzH2000 enthusiast that you seems to be:

It's simply a PzH 2000 turret on a MLRS chassis! :-)

The thinks weight 27t (versus 55t for the PzH2000), wich means that it can be transported in an A400M :) and then provide an appreciable support for the Puma.

Already found that one myself, they also have it mounted on a cheap truck chassis. Expect both to be in the SR2020 equipment list. :)
