technicals, gun-trucks, battle wagons.

"West Africa is currently going through a very intense arms purchasing period. a lot of embargo's have been lifted and western support has increased dramatically.
you will find a great deal of refurbished and modern equipment in the hands of rebel groups. mostly due to those groups being semi legit and holding vast reserves of natural resources. several are also ex military and defected with large parts of regularly forces and equipment.
Indeed, we can see many countries with modern Chinese vehicles and other stuff . Nonetheless, those new vehicles mean new models..Nonetheless, most of the vehicles should be from the 90's because even if they buy new stuff, it's gonna be kind of "anecdotal" (CRD get Xingxing from China, but only few when DRC is using a lot of old Russian vehicles). But this "anecdotal" should be in the faction as well!"

gun-trucks





battle wagons

From what we saw, they are using smaller trucks to transport troops. http://img230.imageshack.us/img230/3264/15135694ub0.jpg

That is actually BTR-90.
BTR-90M with Bakcha-U turret:

BTR-90:

It's not really popular on international marketrs at this time.

Correct me if I' wrong, but this is XZFB05 XinXing



Thanks, mate, waiting for other info from you on this subject

Again, these Chinese armored cars belong to Congo-Brazzaville, not DRC.

If you're looking for an IFV/APC, there're a lot of BTR-family vehicles in most African armies (PR got a BTR-60 model already).
The BMP-1 is used too, but the BMP-2 is way rarer (I've only seen one photo of it, Ugandian, but maybe Angola has some).

The AML-90 has seen some uses, and it'd a decent addition.

The Rooikat is from South Africa by the way. Nigeria has some EE-9 Cascavel.

its just a start guys, try and collate as much info as we can, make it like a smorgasbord of items so when the devs choose what they need they can take it from the most appropriate source.
my first post was simply to get the ball rolling, i have no position on this team or have any role in this faction, i simply asked a few questions and thought this thread might help.


as i have been looking at these technicals i have noticed a lot of them seem to be land cruisers and land rovers plus other 4x4 utes...

HangMan: BF2 Editor, it has very strict limitations memory wise, and crashes all the time. Its like a girl. Treat it with respect and take it slow and you'll get places. Rush and get ahead of yourself and it will turn around and punch you in the mouth

Tonnie you own some sports car dork. ahaha.
Yeah agreed, anything newer than the techy is a great step. you could possibly use the M35 Logistic Truck? Reskin it and make it look dirtier and add the mounted gun?
