Can we attach the 3-d infantry to tanks or other vehicles like infantry is attached to the bradley for example ? This would add some more possibiltys for asymetrix or urban warfare without having to constantly manage the infantry.

Well not quite sure what you mean but you can "customise" the load of an APC.

As Ssnake posted elsewhere in the Mission Planner:

- Put an APc / IFV on the map.

- Put the custom team nearby (say RBS-70)

- Unload the IFVs Infantry

- Delete the Infantry off the map

- Load the RBS-70 team.

Now the IFV will carry an RBS-70 team instead of an Infantry Squad / Section. So an Infantry Company's Support Section can now travel in a vehicle with the Coy, not need to be spawned at the next battle position.

You can't do the same things with tanks because tanks can't carry Infantry as passengers (I know you might have tank riders in RL, but it isn't modelled in SB Pro).

Whoa, wait a second, what is Steelbeast's source for the T-72? Is it all Stefan's website? Or is it something else?

Actual T-72 tank crew members, and vehicle technical manuals, as is the case with everything else.

This wouldn't be a bad idea. The troops could perform scouting for the tanks, like they do in their dismounted role for PC's.

If we could only get them to instruct a tank to target buildings with HEAT.

I understand it is not a patch but a new complete installation we get. Will it be available via download, or only CD, or both?

The DVDs and manuals wouldn't be done until at least January (if I remember correctly).. and I really hope not to have to wait that long! They would loose money for shipping the DVDs worldwide for free shipping at a price of 25$

Thanks, by the way I also added some information to the challenger 2, such as some basic trivia on the sights, explaining the difference between the thermal sight and the daysight. Anyone who knows stuff about the chally, please correct my info if it needs correcting.
