View Full Version : Thsi vehicle would suit OFP really well
The primary responsibility of the AAVs during an amphibious operation is to spearhead a beach assault. They disembark from ship and come ashore, carrying infantry and supplies to the area to provide a forced entry into the amphibious assault area for the surface assault element. Once the AAVs have landed, they can take on several different tasks: manning check points, Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT) missions, escorting food convoys or mechanized patrol. The standard AAV comes equipped with a MK-19 grenade launcher and a M2 .50 caliber machine gun. With a 10,000 pound capacity, the AAV can also be used as a bulk refueler or a field expedient ambulance. It is easily the most versatile vehicle in the Marine Corps.
It can carry 21 combat troops
was introduced in 1983
In 1985 the Marines changed the name from LVTP7Al to AAV7Al
Sounds cool! I wonder what it looks like. Also once and if we get the SDK maybe someone can mod the boat that launches them I saw it once on TV an APC shot right out the back of a boat and started for shore it was pretty cool looking.

It's too bad the game is set in '85, or they could throw in those killer hovercraft the Marines are using in the Mid East

The Apache aint exactly an oil painting. Vehicles are built for a purspose not looks. :-)

It's not so ugly:
And Apache is just nice chopper, ok. Look at mi-28. This is really the ugliest chopper in the world. Mi-24 and apache bouth can be good for oil painting. And vehicle look is important. If the chopper is good looking, enemy materialists won't destroy him. U know why. :biggrin:

I think this would be cool, also would like to see the following.
Using the seal guys, I would like to see these 2 boats added. I thought the bottom boat has a ramp off the back that can bring in a Zodiak full of Seals.
Yeah I noticed they made that for VBS I wish they would send us civs those models. But s**t happens so it doesnt matter.

Well I hope some of the vehicles get leaked from BIS offices
