Default [WIP] [Vehicle] Komatsu LAV

Current progress with highpoly model of jeep for japanese faction:









Jeep is planned in 2 variants - up armored (as shown on screenshots) with M2 Browning, and without turret armor and weaponry, but with ability to use personal weapons for person located on turret place.

Looks so neat! Always dreamed about a free kit spot for the gunner . HAT/LAT jeep on the run, rushing the ennemy FOB tossing grenade/gl. What about a sniper/marksman moving vehicle even better; a moving SL calling Area attack straight on arrival....
To sum it up:
“Omae wa mou shindeiru!!!”

PS: Is there any Type 96 WAPC planned for JSDF? That would be awesome!


Supporting this game since 0.6 Never gonna give up!

Well plans with M2 didn't go so well... This variant is very rare and in reality it looks differently with less protection for the gunner as expected. Another option is much more spreaded version with mounted Minimi. For less firepower gunner will become almost invulnerable. The problems are:
- Is it feels balanced?
- As i know there are no Minimi as stationary weapon system. Is it hard to transform existing one for infantry into mounted version?


(Also there is possibility that turret will have limited angles for rotation due to extended MG)


(this is version with Sumitomo Minimi, japanese FN Minimi manufactured by license)

Updated wheels (not turbo smoothed because my laptop is not feeling well with it) :


And early version of seats (feels to wide but photos say the opposite) :


Also i have made a decision switch to Minimi as turret gun since M2 variant is rare enough in JSDF and similar to NSVT on MEC UAZ in terms of angle rotation and placement

Would be cool to see low poly 3rd person view model. There is nothing much to give feedback now for high poly. But sure looks cool. Afaik, yeah, existing handheld weapon can be attached to vehicles. Also for reference, look up vehicles in bf2meshview, in terms of details in 3rd p.

Using Minimi should be no problem.
As for the shooting infantry weapons from hatch you have to consider that the gunner will not be able to duck and as such will be rather exposed. So that variant might become undesirable to be used

Mineral: TIL that Wire-guided missiles actually use wire

I agree with you, I mean, yeah it would be a new experience to have grenades or rockets being fired from a jeep, but ARs are no good at this position.
