FAV's

Recommended Posts

after many hours of going over models and working with the design team on these babies im proud to show you guys work in progress of buggies we are working on for a mod my team are putting together

now there is going to be a chinese version and a US version for the mod  we are doing but we will be releasing them as separate addons for those that want to use them in mods

however they wont be manned they will be empty vehicles meant for mutliplayer at this stage

we are however having a few issues and if anyone can help us with the configs then it would be very appreciated

anyways here are some images please remember these are a WIP and not complete

(btw thx to johnny for the use of his buggies as a base for the FAV's and also to jantemplar and choib for thier fantastic work getting these to look as close to the real deal as possible)

Oh, very nice, do you need an extra beta tester? I have been testing a few personal addons of my own lately (mostly experimentation) and I could take on another project (especially one as neat as this smile_o.gif )

we have a rather ful group of betatesters at this point mate (we all use voice coms as testing is being done so things can be fixed on the spot) and as you know too many voices drowns out the room lol but we are looking for experienced configgers to help with a couple of the issues we have with the models one of which is setting up the gunners to work the way we want (same principle as the gunners from the blackhawks is what we have in mind) and also we plan to add a second gun to the passenger seat (in the chinese version the weapon would be thier lmg created by fromz with the US the m249)

these are things we want to fix

gunners cant access the gunners seat

invisible wall in the model inside the rollcage

and a few lod issues

once these issues are rectified and the textures finalised we will put out a beta to our team and wont be long after that that the public beta will be available

I too have to say the rear wheels (ignoring comparisons to real life vehicles) just apear to be too big scale wise anyway?

Like a drag racer or bigger .... I would suggest IMHO to bring them down, and marry them to the example given above.

Great to see this coming though! pistols.gif

David Stirling must be spinning in his grave.  wink_o.gif

These armed moon-buggies might be fun to scoot around in

though. The real ones, I believe, can also mount RCL rifles

and belt-fed mortars. Are you going to offer any of those

variants too?

An "ironclad" version might be a laugh too - whizzing around

with rounds whanging off the plating...  biggrin_o.gif

the recoiless rifle was dropped from the program as they were finding it shook the body of the buggies too much to the point of near flipping the things as far as alternate loadouts we will be placing the Mk19's and the AGS30 on both the variants and we will also be doing a desert and black version of them aswell as far as an iron clad i dont know if that was ever thought of at this stage i would have to talk to some of my buddies in the states and see what i can find out lol

Quote[/b] ]The original tests used commercial dune buggies modified to carry weapons such as TOW missiles and recoilless rifles. The recoilless rifles still had enough recoil that they were abandoned (they tended to flip the light dune buggies). The TOW missiles had much greater success, but they violated existing Army TOW doctrine. The Army had determined that a TOW needed a 3 man team to operate it. The FAVs could only carry a two man crew and they seemed perfectly capable of operating the TOW, but this would have meant revisiting Army doctrine and possibly changing TOW deployment throughout the Army. Fort Benning decided to offer a "superior" FAV design that allowed a third crewman. This design was rejected by the HTLD team and was never produced.

Yes, I can believe that about the RCL rifles. "Recoilless" is a

relative term.

Go on, do an ironclad one. It'd be like "The A Team"!  biggrin_o.gif

rstratton:

They are much faster and they go literaly over the hill flying once you get them up to full speed.

It seems when your driving you can go slow a bit, but once you hit the hills, weeeeeeee.

Only problem is, on road = fast, on dunes and sand= fast

but on grass = STOP

not sure there.

RobertHammer: Thanks, i have already fixed the wheels and i have also added a M249 to the front, we are getting there.

Sgt Savage gave us a sound, but if its military grade we will have a look. (military grade meaning great quality.)

Commando84: There will be unarmed versions, but they will have American and Chinese skins.

Thanks for all the feedback guys, but we are getting there, and we will keep adding changing etc, to make it perfect for everyone.
