A correction and a couple of suggestions for this otherwise very well-researched OOB:

UNIT 316 - had 6 crew, not 4. In addition to the mortar, it was also armed with 12.7mm HMG (don't know which type) mounted on the cab.

UNIT 516 - a good number of the armoured trucks were enclosed (so top armour would be 1), and armed with a 12.7mm HMG. Perhaps you could make an alternative version of UNIT 516, with these two changes? It could use Icon 810.

There was a series of 17 improvised vehicles called HIAV in use during our War of Independence. If you're interested, here's the stats I could glean:

description: armoured transporter based on backhoe loader
unit class: maybe 26 (utility vehicle)?
date: 10/91-12/95?
armour: 1 all round (steel)
crew: 2
passenger capacity: 4
speed: 13 (40 km/h)
weight: 9 t
weapons: 12.7mm Browning HMG or 7.62mm GPMG

Well here's a country you just don't hear about but, under my "One World-One OOB" mindset, I came across this as dated. Haven't verified this against the OOB yet but, I've started some preliminary checks in other areas. I will use this opportunity to say I won't be submitting anything this year as my time I allow for this work just didn't coincide with my time this year. I hope to have my first Patch Post on here by March once I see how the new patch affects the game. For my own good I need to space things and not "hammer" Don (And myself.) with my stuff in the last couple of months before the Patch is about ready. So Don please leave this ALONE, I got this.

I hope everyone has a Happy New Year!!

Pat

Something for next year:

UNIT 572 - Croatia has no ships with 76mm guns. The heaviest naval guns we have are 57mm Bofors on the missile boats.

"Thirty Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected Vehicles MRAP MaxxPro for logistic use, donated by the U.S. Government to the Republic of Croatia, were officially taken over in the “Croatia” Barracks in Zagreb on 7 April 2014."

"The U.S. Government decided on donating 212 MRAP vehicles, of which 162 MRAP M-ATV vehicles (combat terrain vehicle), 29 MRAP HAGA vehicles (for medical purposes) and 30 MaxxPro vehicles."

http://defence-blog.com/army/croatia...p-maxxpro.html

here's a video of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lw6CxSlY6So

also:

"The takeover of 13 armoured HMMWV vehicles type 1151 with associated equipment, spare parts and additional communications equipment was made today, Tuesday, 14 June 2011, in the Ministry of Defence." (more were delivered later)

Couple of things here:

UNIT 10 - not in service anymore, and not listed on the Croatian Army's website. Wikipedia claims they were completely withdrawn in 2009.
Suggestion: change end date to 12/09.
Note: The MCV version is still in service.

UNIT 11 - there were only like 3 of them, and they no longer appear on the Army's website. Probably withdrawn at same time as T-55AM.
Suggestion: change end date to 12/09.

M-ATVs with 40mm MK19 Grenade Launchers were seen at the parade in Zagreb on 8/15:
