I present you with the namer apc, that is going to be featured with the IDF. The Namer is an apc based upon the Merkava design, but with several modifications to make it more suitable as an apc.
The Namer's armament is a forward pointing smoke system and The Samson RWS platform capable of mounting .50 caliber weapons and similar support weapons.


Model: [R-DEV]Motherdear
Textures: [R-DEV]The.Fist

An APC with a tank's durability. Beats the hell out of the M113.

Finally an APC that can stay close to inf instead of dodging RPGs. I just hope it will be at least as armored as Merkava.

If I got these instead of the Merkavas AND the M113's I'd be happy..

the texture looks a bit weird IMO.

top pics are the model with no specular map (not done yet).

and the second pic is the model with specular all the way to the top to show off the effect of the normal map.

I'm suspecting armor wise, this'll be as tough as the Merkeva itself if not more?

Well, they don't have APCs in use that have tank armour, but they have the BMPT which i think is being produced. Its not an APC, but an IFV (Which by the way kind of understates it).

Oh, and the source below doesn't mention it has a T-72 chassis.

OHHHH okay. That makes sense... as of now it looks a little... BF1942ish if I may say. Once it's completely finished no doubt it'll look amazing

At last an IDF APC that can take more than 10 50cal rounds :D

Very nice, but it won't replace the M113. In fact I'd like to see the M113 alot more often. The US should even have M113's considering they are the most common US APC (well, I read that we have 6000 M113's compared to 4000 Bradley or something like that).

Excellent model, looking forward to it. Few questions:

Will this completely replace the M113 for the IDF in game?

Will it be a .50 variant only?

Is the armor have the exact same values as the Merkava?

Will the Merkava still be able to carry 6 infantry, or will that feature be removed so this APC is more valuable?

What maps will it feature on?

Will Merkavas still feature on 1km maps such as Gaza?

Does the area I've highlighted in red (bits poking out) house space for one or more infantryman (see hatches above them), or are supplies/electronics stored there?

I'm guessing the extra bits are for armor packages I'm guessing. The M113 will still appear in maps with less intensity, and if the Namer only has its .50, I'm as sure as hell it'll come with the Pintle mounted FN MAG on the left side of the RWS.

most likley but there are also engineer versions of the Challenger 2 etc and we do not have enough players ingame to go ahead and make engineering vehicles on top of all the other vehicles/roles we have already.

Excellent, I'd like this to replace the M113 and Merkava on some maps. Say in Beirut the IDF gets three of these, and a few transport hummvs instead of the one Merkava and 3-4 M113s.

Like a Stryker on steroids!

1.it is not an IFV, it does not carry infantry, its has 5 crew members and thats it
2. It wasn't produced in any serious numbers, iirc there are 2-3 of those(you're referring to, if not 1)+ 3 other variants of it rusting on the backyard of Kubinka tank museum.
Anyway, whole thing was cancelled recently, this exact vehicle wont get into mass production

Rumours say new project was initiated recently, which will be majorly different from "Ramka" and have closer to BMP-3-like weapon complex

Oh, and the source below doesn't mention it has a T-72 chassis.

it could be built over T-72 and T-90, but those we saw should be T-90

With that logic its north worth using a tank because its easy to hit with a TOW etc.

As much fun as the m113 can be, the exposed gunner ultimately makes it very hard to provide fire support with in PR. This is why the Namer is going to be a lot more for fun for Mech inf :)

[image snipped]
I think those areas house things like air-conditioner and heat sinks... and they're a bit small for a person, if you consider that they are armored.

Ughh tracked vehicles = horrible for mech inf :???:

Not fast or agile enough.

Fast and agile are normally needed because vehicles supporting infantry are lightly armoured. surely the need to be fast and agile (tho tanks in PR are not that bad) when you are heavily armoured is redundant.

Cant wait for this, finally a inf support that can stick around and provide cover for extended periods of time.

Dont need anything fast, just need something that is going to put down a lot of firepower to cover/support the inf.

I'm talking from a purely 'we have to cap them out to win' aspect of speed and maneuverability.

It comes down to personal preference really, I've seen success with the BTR-80 on the maps it features in though. Tried a Bradley and BMP, /wrists 1 (http://img532.imageshack.us/img532/5189/bf22010041600305553.png) 2 (http://img580.imageshack.us/img580/2563/bf22010021321161556.png)
