Talk and Learn about the military aspects of the game.
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.

The real thing:
For more info on this unit:
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.
