HUMVEES and Blackhawks.

Postby Armchair_Marine » Thu Nov 16, 2006 10:38 pm

Are the USMC going to get humvees and blackhawk transports? Or are transports going to be APC's for most armies?

The USMC Shadow is sort of a wheeled potential replacement for the humvee. There will be helicoptors, but I can't recall if any of them are transports or not.

Ah, yes, I thought the Shadow was some sort of artillary vehicle until I saw this http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/ ... rstv_2.jpg
Yep, looks like a humvee type vehicle to me, it'll do.

First off, Marines don't use the Blackhawk. They have the Osprey. Hey, maybe that would be the Corps' helo. And you'd roll a d6 every turn to see if it crashed.

I'm kidding, but so far the Osprey's been real pain for the Corps.

Hi guys,

The Future Lynx has transport capability, and we have actually statted out the Osprey, though no designs have been made yet for a model. . .

Well I'd still like to see the Blackhawk used in this game, if not for the Marines then for the US Army. Come on, I can't be the only one that wants to recreate Blackhawk Down.

Don`t worry armchair, to design a blackhawk for Evo with take you about 2 mins tops, so easy to do, and blackhawk down if one i will be playing when the rules etc appear, as they also have rules for mobs etc

I think mongoose should just go to town on unit rules. Tons of other companies already make the requisite models. And Air Cav FTW.
