    Disregard my last

    Thanks for the kind words. AFAIK, the CROWS display only shows the gun's relative position to the front of the vehicle, so I don't think it shows the bearing anywhere on the screen. However, if someone can find a reference, we can probably put it in.

    If I had a dollar for this question.. but I'll restate the answer because perhaps we haven't addressed it recently. The current HMMWV in game cannot support the up armored turrets full stop. Also, the up-armor package is much more than the turret, it encompasses changes to the entire vehicle, including suspension, chassis, the body, interior, etc. The up-armored series began officially with the M1114 (and other earlier kits), but you don't see those anymore. The in service armored HMMWVs are the M1151 / M1152 / M1165 (and others). Those are basically an entirely new model, almost nothing can be re-used. So, it is not as simple as just putting on the armored turrets.

    Not really. The SOCOM Rifleman is basically a placeholder class so that something can crew the vehicles. There's really nothing to make a team, except MARSOC which is doing alright.

    Some official pictures of the new M-ATV, including the SOF version which we just got injected:

    Thanks for the kind words everyone with regards to the M-ATV, I will relay them to Gurdy, who did a crap ton of modelling on it as well, basically the entire Med Poly with a few changes. We'll do some kind of official teaser once I add the other variant this weekend. Cheers!

    Is this on the M1239 or M1238A1?

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Sure, can throw that in Edit- done, will be in next release

    We are planning the release of our next major update, 0.4.9 tomorrow night (August 11)

    Alright, a little update about a feature request someone asked for a really long time ago. In our first release of the old FMTVs, they had overhead protection fitted. When we injected the new model, we got rid of that. Now, I am happy to announce a lot of the US MRAPs and trucks will get some new customization options for the Objective Gunner Protection Kit (O-GPK) turrets. Here you can see the features demonstrated on the RG-33L 6X6 (M1232) MRAP. There are 2 customization options: the Overhead protection kit, which is functional, and a turret bustle, which is cosmetic. Both can be enabled independently. This will be available on the following vehicles: M1232/M1237 MRAP (RG-33L 6X6) M1220/M1230 MRAP (Caiman) M1078A1P2-B/M1083A1P2-B/M1084A1P2-B (Armored FMTV with turret) M977A4-B (Armored HEMTT with turret) We've also added a few other customization options to existing MRAPs, such as hiding the Rhino Counter-IED system. Enjoy!

    Haha good catch, did those LODs pretty quickly. I added some chassis geo into the farthest LODs, so that is now fixed.

    Some photos of the last RG-33 deriviative vehicle we have planned to produce, the (now say it along with me kids!) M1238A1 RG-33 Special Operations Command Armored Security Vehicle (M1238A1 ASV). This is a 4 wheel drive, 4 or 5 passenger MRAP. Standard equipment is the M2 machine gun fitted to the M153 Common Remote Operated Weapons System (CROWS). Ours is also optionally fitted with a Rhino Counter IED system and a few other accessories. Woodland and desert will be available, and once we've finished a few small animation tweaks, I should be able to show some photos of both the M1239 SOCOM AUV and M1238A1 SOCOM ASV together. Enjoy!

    Thank you, and correct ID!

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Cheers, and good guess but not quite correct! The same concept however.. :)

    Little project I've been doing over the past few months, hopefully in the next release if all goes well.

    On top of what Reyhard has said, I actually built a ATACMS pod, but no ATACMS missile yet. So, it might be possible. Ideally we want to hot-swap the rocket pod types, but that might not be possible, and it would have to be 2 variants, which IMO would kind of suck. So, we shall see :) As far as M31/M30, I think that is doable, we just didn't really have anyone with time to do anything more than one missile type for this patch.

    Thank you, appreciate it. No, whenever I do a MaxxPro, it will be a completely new model.
  18. Richards.D

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    A fine question. It is not.. the model I did wasn't very, well how do I say, good. It wasn't very good lol. We'll probably re-visit it soon-ish, but I have 2 projects (1 at least), I want to bang out before I either do the M-ATV, or something secret :), or maybe Gurdy will finish it. We shall see!

    Not at the present time.

    Member cap 500?

    Yes.. sort of. We have about 330 active members who actually play with our group. However, over time people leave, and now none of our new, active members can join. And it's a right pain to delete people as is unfortunately. So, it's easier to just add

    I have the exact same issue. Yet, I see clans with thousands of members?

    For CROWS on the Abrams, it would need to be the SEP V2 variant, which has a host of other changes. It's something we've wanted to do for a long time, just no one free to work on it. So, unfortunately not in the near future, but something we definitely want eventually. As far as the plow, there's no plans for that, definitely not a high priority.
  24. Richards.D

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Yeah, it's not a bad shout. The reason I don't generally do it, is that every time you make a new weapon variant, you have to duplicate the model (p3d) file. That means the file size gets huge if you have a ton of variants, as unfortunately one model file can't have interchangeable weaponry, hopefully A4 will have such a feature. But never say never, if there's enough mass demand then it could be easily done.
  25. Richards.D

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Yes that is correct ^^ Alright, another teaser, this time the Cougar MRAP! Exterior by Shaftynsky, interior by me! Enjoy!
