One for the Swedish FH77B, upgrading it from 39 calibers to 52 calibers and modifying it to use the 'Excaliber' rounds from the Crusader Gun System.

I will place all other articles I find here instead of in individual threads.

Not really anything new, just the fact Taiwan will have AAVP7A1 RAM/RS vehicles.

Go to Infantry vehicles and look under Puma. I haven't seen that before, have you?

French vehicle that sounds similar to the FCS program.

Thanks for the updates. The Puma is new to me. I've made notes on some of this but won't finish this till later.

k, the Puma is in. I gave it a designation of M-2 (thinking M-1 Marder).

I also had the FH-77 SP version (again, think it was from you :smile: ) and made notes to go back to the French FCS unit.

Thanks again.

Two Chinese antitank vehicles, both with a 120mm gun. One is based on a SPG chassis and the other on the wheeled YW 551 chassis. I guess the Centauro 120 won't be the only wheeled vehicle with a gun of that size.

Big lakes :

Militia (armed civilians)
Terrorists (quite idem)
Paratroopers : "jump on this nice airport guys !"

War is not only a truck game, Yankees :smile:

These have not been forgotten. Milita is the standard conscript unit or Garisson unit depending on your definition. The terrorists are not something you get to train though, they popup in regions of major civil unrest.

The paratroopers are the airborne and airborne elite. There are also a number of other "para-capable" units in the game.

(Psst, we're not American, we're Canadian :wink: )

ooops, sorry for that.

Ok, I have a problem with auto-pop up militia. Because in many games it's not realistic. There's numerous militia who fight as well as regular armies and they get weapons for nothing. At the end you can have an entire enemy army who spread from nowhere.
A real "resistance" militia cannot survive without help from another country. There is few guerrilla that exist in that case ( like FARCS in Colombia,ETA or IRA).
Terrorists or militias should be supply,or built, by foreign countries to be effective.

I'm thinking about Hizbollah or Taliban, who are not regular but supplied by Syria or Pakistan. Those troops are almost regular armies but they do not belong directly to the attacking country.

In the game you could have US indians militia supported by Canadians for exemple.

This actually taken into account. You have options in the operations section to fund destabilization activities that includes resistance or terrorist elements. The simple solution is that there will be a limit to the total number of civil unrest units that can popup up without outside funding.
