I note that the Support section for the British army can be mounted in a land rover, but IIRC the preview stats for a land rover said it carried 5, not 6. are the stats changed for the full release?

You can get eight men in a Landie, with Bergens piled in the middle of the floor. It's a squeeze but doable.

How? Those were in the boxes. No boxes anymore = > no free rules.

Unless Mongoose is going to offer some to download. :wink:

The book is filled to the max. Everyone that wanted army lists in the previous book has got their wish. Also, in no time at all WaW players will be able to sit down and play Modern Combat because the core rules are identical. A quick run thru the advanced rules and you are ready to deploy for World War 3!

Be excited! :wink:

Maybe they are counting the drivers as officially tied to the vehicles now for added realism. ;)

One would assume so, but then what's the point of giving the Support Section a land rover, when it can't carry all of them?

How long until the PDF will be available on Wargaming Online?
Will it be a while after the book is released, very soon after, at the same time?

Looking nice! The German Heet seems interesting, though I've only looked over it quickly as of yet.

However there is this one thing, where are the Swedes? :lol:
