Concerning #2 I don't believe (and as stated on the first post I could be wrong here.)
Dont take as gospel but vehicle crews in a campaign work like this.
They gain any experience from the battle then if upgrade/switch vehicles the following happens.
To same type of vehicle as in tank to tank minor exp loss as its new equipment.
To a difrent type of vehicle bigger exp loss
If the vehicle is destroyed the game still checks think fairly random if enough crew survived & there is a chance they do & transfer to the new vehicle.
Same applies to all units change to a diffrent unit type they take a small experince loss. The bigger the diffrence in unit type the bigger the loss, for instance switching a squad to a vehicle or SAM unit.
Hope that helps

The Cougar/ HEV/ MRAP is on the list to add to the US OOB

For now you can "borrow" them from the Marines

Just like the US Army borrowed LAV's from the USMC during Desert Storm

Fallout Re: MRAPs and a couple of general questions.

Just started a 21 game generated campaign USMC vs Russia/Iran/Russia June 2009 - Nov. 2010. Just curious, will the newer 2 crew 11 personel 6x6 MRAP (and more capable.) I brought up in my original post be available to the game in the future? I believe the History Channel show "Lock n Load" expects it to be fielded by mid 2010 for both USA and USMC and aillies. Also will we be able to buy them by the section or platoon as you can with the MRAP 4x4's in the game now? Currently the USMC MRAP 6x6 (10 Per.) is tied to an organic light engineer team in the game.
Concerning the Patriot transport issue I both respectfully disagree that no unit can transport the Patriot (except currently in the game.) and kindly would refer you to my "update" post I submitted concerning the ground transport of the US Patriot Missile and the systems dependency on the Tractor to provide the launchers power.
With Regards,
Pat

Don,
Sorry for the confusion thought you were just shifting over the USMC ones in the game (current 6x6 holds 10per.) w/o including the newer 6x6 I originally mentioned.

I'll give you that, working second shift 2-10/or 3-11 EST and it taking another hour to get home after downloading, the winding down process can take awhile before I finally crawl into bed. This morning that was at 0730 (Thank God these are my off days.) it was a well fought battle with the AI but not worth the price paid this day. Anyway this is why I already have so many thanks and "sorrys" out there compared to my posts. I do appreciate all that is done for the game and gamers. But most importantly to those that check my posts and take the time to reply I THANK YOU and DO APOLISE for any past or future issues. I like what I do in my military retirement but the job is what the job is and all that comes with it! By the way any room for submarines in this game!?! To all have a great day!!
With Warm Regards to All,
Pat
