Lately i’ve been working on making the AAVP7A1 and the AAVC7A1 (http://www.realitymod.com/forum/f388-community-modding/60043-vehicle-aavp7a1.html).

The AAVP7A1 is armed with a M2 Browning .50 cal and a MK19 40mm Grenade launcher.

The AAVC7A1 though is going to be used in the command post role.

Both vehicles are amphibious assault vehicles and are used by the USMC.

So mega awesome! Will this be the largest vehicle in PR to date?

NM -- Abrams is larger.

Looks very nice I'm guessing that the grenade launcher is functional and that means it's will be the first vehicle mounted grenade launcher :) ya

Looks great. Hope this'll be in by 0.9


Also, Will there be two gunner positions? One for the .50 cal and one for the Grenade Launcher?

Did you guys need a MK19 Grenade Launcher.

Primary armament: Mk 19 40 mm automatic grenade launcher (864 rounds) or M242 Bushmaster 25mm (900 rounds)
Secondary armament: M2HB .50-caliber (12.7 mm) machine gun (1200 rounds)n (1200 rounds)
It already has one built in but I think that would look great on a Stryker or Humvee :-P

I believe it'll work like the current APCs do..
Just with a 40mm Automatic GL in place of the autocannon and a .50 in the place of the 7.62 machine gun.

Wow, that's a huge target.:wink:. I guess it will also move much slower than other APCs? And the Mk19 won't be very effective against other vehicles, I guess?

Ah, well, that's good, actually. People will, hopefully, focus on transport rather than going out on their own minitank-adventures.

Amphibious Assault Vehicle (http://www.inetres.com/gp/military/cv/inf/AAV.html)

moves at 45 MPH (the Abrams moves at 42)

and it sails at 8,2 MPH

so it aint really slow ;)

also loaded with the right kind of 40mm HEDP grenade it should no problem to penetrate the other APC's (can a .50 penetrate 2 inches of armorplate ?)

40mm Low-Velocity Grenades (http://www.inetres.com/gp/military/infantry/grenade/40mm_ammo.html)


quite simply, you don't want to be in the way of this beast it packs a punch

lovely vehicle, but i never understood why people get nervous about every autogrenadelauncher, its basicly just a .50 with limited range and splash damage, nothing ubercool, appart from shooting technicals and bombercars the .50 will be far more usefull than the AGL

correction, it would be much more like APC HEAT rounds but with a grenade trajectory :)

So basically its a huge LAV thats harder to aim :P

Snazz
2009-11-10, 09:55
We don't know yet how much ammo it will have in-game or whether it will overheat.

I don't think a 40mm grenade would be overpowered compared to the current 30mm HEAT round, it'd likely be much harder to aim considering grenade trajectory.

Muttrah I take it you mean? Dont see why not, can get to the shore line much quicker than the LAV-25 (not to mention 100x more realistic than a LAV-25 for a Amphibious Assault) and also pretty fast on flat ground too. Only thing it will probably struggle against is APC vs APC combat but will need to see what the MAs say here.

with HEDP rounds it would actually do quite well at that rhino. but then again MA's know their stuff so would trust them to say what round etc it uses.

I'd love to hear what the MAs say about it, but as I understand it AAVs were a primary mode of transport during the invasion of Iraq (well, both of them) for Marine infantry. Certainly they're more realistic than using the LAV-25 for amphibious assaults.

With regards to the Mk-19's 40mm high velocity, high-explosive dual-purpose grenade in comparison to the 25mm HEI-T (high explosive incendiary tracer, not HEAT) round of the Bushmaster:

25mm HEI-T / 40mm HEDP
Casualty Radius: 5m / 15m
Armor Penetration: INA / 51mm
Max Effective Range: 2000m (tracer burnout) / 1600m
Max Range: 3000m (self-destruct / air-burst) / 2200m

Not as much range on the Mk-19 and you really have to "lob" them to get them there, but when they do, more people get to share in the experience.

Awesome work, looks real good. :)

One thing though, can you simulate the cramped rides and horrible smell of diesel too? ;)

Step 1: Move your computer into your closet
Step 2: Get a large and preferably old and noisy fan.
Step 3: Place diesel fuel in spill resistant coffee cup in front of fan.

Also, insurgents will be given apricots to throw. :mrgreen:

I also hope the AAV7 doesnt replace the LAV but supplements it, after all the marines use both vehicles.

and to everyone whos concerned about the AAVs effectiveness against enemy apcs, I have to wonder in real life would an AAV even attempt to take on an enemy apc? say a bmp1 or bmp2 rolled up on an AAV, I would think the AAV would deploy smokes and hightail it out of there. Does this sound right to anyone?

well, the LAV isn't the worse vbf2 vehicle ever (and its handling is actually superior to most PR vehicles, very smooth) So it would be fun to complement eachother. Maybe even remove a Bradley on Fallujah in favour of a LAV, then have AAVs spawn in :)

no plans to replace the LAV-25 with the AAVP7A1, it will be kinda like the "light APC" for the USMC faction and the LAV-25 being more the medium APC :)

But you will most likley see all LAVs on Amphibious Assault maps being totally replaced by AAVP7A1s simply because they are far more realistic and faster in the water etc etc.

Im not sure replacing the LAV-25 on muttra is such a good idea especially seeming these things are going to be going neck and neck against other APC's, from what iv heard they don't exactly measure up to the statuesque of armour protection these days, i don't practically want a repeat of quai river, Where all the LAV’s where replaced with strikers and subsequently got raped by the Chinese apc’s,


And the cobra does nothing much in this map, It effect on the battle is usually a few minutes before it shot down , so it really up to the APC's to protect the marines from the BTR's, and if this thing can't hack it against enother apc it has not place in muttra,

So if your down right determined to have them, on this map, at least give them some anti Apc capability’s.

ChiefRyza
2009-11-11, 09:25
If you look at the armor penetration on the Mk.19 rounds you'll see it will probably do more damage than a normal 25mm round. Nonetheless it doesn't make sense having LAV's being launched from carriers. Plus, the LAV-25 completely obliterated the BTR-60 so it would be nice to see the AAV and the BTR-60 being sent head to head.

As Eddie's comparison points out, it will probably actually be more evenly matched now against MEC.

Also, will the AAVP7A1 have the ability to drop proper supply crates seeing it is such a huge vehicle IRL and the 8 player limit?
Is the vehicle also going to be fully to scale in game?

Like I have said before I will not be doing a strait swap of LAVs for AAVs without considering all aspects of the map, much like when it came to the time to replace the BTR-90 with the BTR-60, I didn't do a strait swap there since if I did that, we would have only one BTR-60 in the map, where we current have 3 BTR-60s in the map.

I will most likley be tweaking the types and numbers of APCs on both sides in order to balance the map.

As much as I liked the layout with tanks and helis better, the US still have the TOW hummer left from that setup so that kinda balances everything out. You can't use the "idiot team-mate will crash/destroy X, Y and Z" argument cos if all of those parameters were covered we'd be left having line battles with FF off, because someone would inevitably complain about the capacity for people to teamkill still being in game.

Anyway for one I've seen cobras stay in the air on Muttrah well over half an hour on several occasions, and there's nothing stopping the DEVs having an LAV spawn at the docks when that's capped if the US really need it.

yeah i know that mate, in Iraq there where report's that the mk.19 round did some surprising amount of damage to Iraqi armour when the round actually connected. But unfortunately it not that simple. there are other factor's then armour penetration, the mk.19 round as a very dramatic tendency to ark where as the 25mm fly's straighter and there for is more accurate and has a much greater range. so there not really on equal footing are they.

Yes, you're correct, however the gunner in the AAV will be able to compensate for that with a few spotting rounds.

The 14.5mm on the BTR will obviously still do significant damage, and is more accurate and has greater range, BUT on the other hand the Mk19 has a large splash damage radius which makes it great for the apartments etc. on Muttrah.

TBH I think this is going to be VERY balanced, depending on the road that Rhino takes with it.

replacing the LAVs with AAVs is a must on maps that have sea borne assaults. LAVs are not used like that, they are indeed amphibious, but not designed for being in the ocean. more like crossing rivers etc. LAVs are whats used for amphibious assaults from marine carriers.

if its going to have a mobile command post role, then they also make mobile command posts for ; strykers, hummers, bradlies. ( instead of siting in a tac trailer you can look out at the battle feild and make quiker decisons.

there are also medical evac varianst for those also, maybe add it to the logistical(support sqd) as a way to pull up to a wounded man, medic gets out, epinphrines him, gets him in the Medevac Vic, and takes him back to to the FO or main FOB and he can only get fully healed there.

then theres a choice, take him back on a supply convoy to the front, or the squad has to come and get him. floats tickets adn would require team work between squads to cover the medivac. can also do helo medivacs that way, medic gets him up, pull back to a rally, adn a MedEvac comes and gets him.

If you don't listen to Rhino, he'll just beat it into your head until you get it. For serious.

Pretty excited to see some skins for these babies!

Here's a video with some AAVs in Fallujah:
LiveLeak.com - CNN Report about US Marines in Fallujah, Iraq 2004. (http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=29be8d2b4f)

I'm curious to hear from a MA/Marine about the use of AAVs in non-amphibious operations and where that leaves the LAV-25.

i'm not sure what you mean; the amtrac is primarily a grunt transport vehicle and not a whole lot else - due to its *cough* aluminium armour *cough*. sporting its mk19 and .50, it'll give fire support for the marines who've disembarked.

the LAV is an inf. fighting vehicle; has better armour, armament and it's faster. although it can transport marines, the aav7 can carry more.

LAVs are kind of the "armoured spearhead" of things like a regimental combat team, used in armoured recon or QRFs. where as you see amtracs in convoys (in 2003) etc

so in PR, using Fallujah as an example, both vehicles will be giving marines fire support, but the LAV will be quicker to respond to things as reconning areas, extracts and also useful for strong-pointing; where as the amtrac will (hopefully) stick with the squad it transports throughout....if this clears things up. but i'm no expert...

guess it will be amphibious as the realistic counterpart.

Shouldn´t this vehicle be bigger? Looks very great, cant wait to drive it, but the human model next to the vehicle looks kind of big? :)

it's the right size all right, compared several ref pictures to find the proper size for it.

The AAVP7A1 is unbelievably big. First time i saw one i was like "woaaah!!!" and on top of that there was an LAV25 next to it so the comparison blew my mind even further.
