Default Names of Vehicles

Hi guys,

I just got Project Reality a month ago and have been having a blast learning how to play it. The major problem I have is being able to correctly communicate what I'm seeing if it's a vehicle. Is there a list or thread for me to learn the names of the vehicles in the mod?

Thanks,
Cruben

Dont hesitate to ask your squadmember.
As the time goes you will see you can remember the names.

for start try to categorize the vehicles.
learn the difference between a tank/apc.
I usually dont care if someone calls the chinese stryker aquivalent "stryker" as its clear what he wanted to say.

Just know difference beetween jeeps, APCs, tanks and trucks. Everyone will understand what you mean if you say "enemy heavy APC G5". Same thing with jeeps, "enemy 50.cal jeep G9".

Learning the name of every vehicle will take a lot of time and is no easy feet for a brand new player, playing with factions they don't know much about.

Your best of just learning the vehicle types to start off with and that is the main thing required for communication and will get 90% of the info the SL+squad needs to act on. For example if you just tell your SL there is an enemy APC (Armoured Personal Carrier) there, the SL will know he needs a L-AT or more to take it out, or if he should get his squad to just hide etc.

So ye, basic types of vehicle are and main things to look for to identify them:
Think that's about all of them

Thanks for all your responses. My main fear was incorrectly communicating the vehicle class and causing friendlies to show up unprepared.

Wow how long did it take to make that? This has really helped me understand the classes of vehicles and how to label them. I know this will help more people than myself. Thanks!

yeah just call them by their class.

"enemy tank" is just as good as british challenger mark 2 MBT or something.

Both the AA BRDM and AA MTLB are reffered to as the Gopher (Gopher being the Anti Air system mounted on them).

The AT MTLB is the Shturm.
