FASTBOAT TOUGH January 7th, 2012 03:34 AM

Re: MRAPs
 
Well I first reported on this vehicle back Oct. 2009 (Pg 2.) and as I followed up expressed that I thought it would be chosen in the end, well it was last month by Austrailia for the Land 121 Program. HAWKEI has made the grade. It has been reported by my other sources as well, and it's about three years out for game consideration. This is just for tracking purposes.

More on HAWKEI that I forgot to post with the last-sorry! But doesn't it just look like something we can all take to visit Don or Andy and have a good time getting there? Well anyway here you go...besides probably not enough room in their driveways for us to park them all anyway!?!

Some miscellaneous items maybe of or not of game importance that I found interesting. Maybe someone can use these?

I believe the above was the missile (Upgraded version of it.) used in that tank video I posted in the MBT Thread a month ago or so used on the Syrian tank.

More house cleaning and put off items for the now 2012/2013 Campaign just a handful in the MRAP category. Some of these items as shown here and in the other various threads were put off due to the heavy work load Don and Andy had to get through this year.

1) India has this vehicle as of about last fall with their police, through Mahindra & Mahindra of India is a licensed producer of the CASSPIR MK6 by BAE which was designed to compete against the GILA which made it into the game in the last patch for Nigeria and the UN. India has designated the vehicle as the MPV-1. You will note it now shares a Russian heritage as well. They will be in service with the Army later in the year.

ADD.

2) Spain to purchase more RG-31 vehicles, I believe I saved this because in their OOB they didn't have them. But since that was awhile ago I'll leave myself the below "out".
http://www.defpro.com/news/details/27925/
VERIFY FOR POSSIBLE ADD.


3) Turkish designed KIRPI BMC 350 is a new MRAP which is in service with Turkey, Afghanistan and Iraq.

ADD FOR ALL THREE COUNTRIES.


4) Russia buys Italian LMV. Orders are expected to exceed amount shown in this article as posted already by some of my sources.

ADD.


That's it for now here. Along with the CASSPIR 6 will also be a verification of the countries that have the CASSPIR as mentioned in the "DID" ref I believe.

Pat

It doesn't look like the UK husky made the patch, unless it's called something else. Is this vehicle in another OOB that I could copy over?

It's an ammo vehicle (TSV) with added mine resistance - and there is no such class in MBT, so no point in the vehicle.

There are plenty of other UOR vehicles and the Foxhound seems to do the same thing if it is even used as a light PPV and not simply as a logistical vehicle.

(It's going to be a right mess this mix of 99 different vehicles - presumably some will be kept after the Afghan pull-out, but most will likely (have to) be sold off to rationalise fleet maintenance - or simply be dumped on the Afghan army?.)

Re: MRAPs
 
It isn't, nor is it listed as the MXT. I went back to the MRAP segment that was posted to this thread from the Patch Post one, this could've been my fault. What I didn't "fix" on the first line you'll see my standard entry, note the C2 (Crew) P2 (Passengers), pretty much makes this vehicle useless in real as well as game terms. It should have read P5 with an explanation that a RECON or other small weapons/sniper team would use this vehicle and both mount and dismount from it. In the rush to get the last part of my inputs into Don when a small window of opportunity presented itself to the both of us to do so, I forgot to fix this. If this was the case I'm sure in due time it'll be made known to us. At present I had planned to resubmit the HUSKEY as it represents one leg of the triad of new vehicles as approved in the UK MOD OUVS Program. It would however be unfair of me to say there weren't other reasons unknown to me, though I could make some guesses. I've enjoyed a very high success rate in getting equipment in, modified etc. but at times some things don't. For now, I'll take the hit plan on, move on, and resubmit for the 2012/2013 Campaign. But this is the time I leave the Bosses alone, the 2011/2012 Campaign was a tough one all the way around.

Andy,
Saw your answer as I posted mine. Pulled the below from the Army-Tech ref submitted. This was the one I was looking at and meant for the game.

"International MXT model

The International MXT is a rugged lightweight vehicle meant for border patrol, reconnaissance missions and security details. It measures 252in, 91in and 96in in length, height and width. The model is powered by the MaxxForce D/VT-365 V8 engine and is suitable to accommodate five passengers. The vehicle can be armoured with a complete range of ballistic IED and mine-blast protection solutions, integral and A-kit / B-kit configurations and 360° crew protection."

Regards,
Pat

Re: MRAPs
 
Flooding the TOE's with too much info,, is IMO counter productive.

Think if were you to assemble all the info you give, and keep track when it will be actually be confirmed?

Just my 2 cents:)

What are the stats for the Husky? I will just add them to my UK OOB. This vehicle would fit how I play perfectly. I usually have a sniper team in a small vehicle try to infiltrate to the rear of the enemy and wreak havoc :-)

Once upon a time a very long time ago there was a vehicle and his name was Willy's such a silly name, that most knew him simply as Jeep. He was made to bring supplies to the troops, get them to the doctor and other mundane jobs. However there was a nasty war far from home and he was asked to serve there, so he got fit and his friends found he could do so much more like tow a 37mm ATG and carry it's crew or because he became so fit and was so fast and agile he become better known as a scout and sometimes a raider with his team and a .50 cal, first in the deserts of Africa, then the jungles of Asia and also the forests of Europe. You know not all is what it seems in the beginning...

For general specs on the HUSKY refer back to the army-tech ref on Pg. 10 Post #100 for the picture showing the up-armored version in the defence-industry ref also in the same post and with the picture above you might have enough for the RECON/COMBAT version for your Icon. It will carry 5 troops. Will see if I can come up with more combat pictures and or specs if still needed.

I so love a good bedtime story, especially after some of my teammates had a bit of a testy day and I feel their pain.

So good night as I have to do it again later today.

Pat

There will be one in the next upgrade. I'm working on the Icon now
