Default French VBCI APC exit point

The driver exits awkwardly out of the top, meaning right in front of the main gun. Often when you hop out and gunner is firing, you'll get TK'd right away.

Intended or not?

I suppose this is intended, however

VCI (infantry combat vehicle) aka the VBCI 25, driver is seated front left (has his own cupola with three periscopes) with the engine too his right. The troop commander is sited behind him and exits via the troop compartment ramp in the rear with the 8 man troop. They are sited 4 men down each side of the vehicle (totalling 8). The gunner is located in the one man Dragar turret. The turret is equipped with a 25mm chain gun.
The driver uses front hatch to exit, commander goes through back.

Pls change it to back exit no matter if its realistic or not. Otherwise the driver has to switch to another seat and than exit.

Which i think is no problem. We will most likely change it, but simply because this is an oddity to the VBCI. All other APC/IFV exit through back/side if it has doors there.

Edit: Moved to back for reason above as well as being somewhat realistic. We have driver/commander merged into one and commander exits back. If back is blocked you will still exit on front. Gunner exists on top of turret.
Also moved CO camera to top of turret while i was at it. Source for both: http://tanknutdave.com/the-french-8x8-vbci-ifv/

All right, thanks for the quick fix.
