Default [vehicle] Oshkosh M-ATV

Oshkosh M-ATV MRAP All Terrain Vehicle

would be an excellent replacement for squad transportation of US Army forces during insurgency maps.

From the little info I could find on it, Sounds like they have arrived in Afghanistan already and that Oshkosh is actually exceeded delivery requirements in November.

I'd be willing to give it a go to model/texture it if there was a chance a good version would be implemented.

(Note, I don't think it would be available to Marines, anyone know?)

KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan-The first Mine Resistant Ambush Protected All-Terrain Vehicles (M-ATV) designated for Southern Afghanistan arrived here Oct. 22 by air transport.

After months of government testing, the Department of Defense awarded a contract June 2009, to Oshkosh Corporation to supply an initial order valued at $1.05 billion for more than 2,000 M-ATVs.

With an independent suspension system designed for off-road mobility, the M-ATV is built specifically to navigate Afghanistan's rugged landscape.

"The M-ATV really answers some of the challenges of the terrain, high altitudes and the real unevenness of a lot of the terrain out there," said Haggerty.

The M-ATV seats four passengers and one gunner, and features an armor system with a "V" shaped hull engineered to protect occupants from enemy attack.

"It looks like a modified, huge, heavy-duty Jeep," said Anthony Deluca, the Kandahar site lead for the MRAP program. "It's got very good suspension systems, and everyone raves about how well it functions in the field."

While some original MRAP vehicles may weigh nearly 60,000 lbs., the M-ATV weighs approximately 25,000 lbs. including standard equipment and fuel.

These initial eight vehicles will be used to train drivers and mechanics from units selected to receive M-ATVs.

I think that this would actually be better for the PSC faction. Seems like something they would use.


Actually screw that and give them the Sandcat http://www.oshkosh-tacticalprotector.com/

why use it for a faction that "seems like they would use it" when you can use it for a faction that DOES use it? makes no sense. project reality remember.

also they have a heavy duty APC already:

If you're willing to model it shouldn't this be in the community modding section?

PSC faction already has a number of light mine resistant vehicles - the aforementioned grizzly and the casspir. Give this to someone who uses it IRL.

Hm, would this vehicle (in game) actually survive a mine or IED blast?

Ideally it would be coded to be disabled (like a tank) by mines/IEDs rather then completely destroyed.
