I thought it would be usefull for addon makers to have an addon research topic. This topic is specifically for addon research. For mission you should take a look over here.

<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>You can request or post info and pictures.</span>


<span style='font-size:12pt;line-height:100%'>Usefull links</span>

Feel free to add your own links. If they are good I´ll add them to this post.



<span style='font-size:12pt;line-height:100%'>Requests</span>
Things I am looking for at the moment:

- Interior photo's of the UR-416 APC.
- High-Res photos of the M1919 machine gun from both sides.
- RG-31 interior and exterior pictures.
- Piranha III blueprints
Can you provide anything of the above? Please post in this topic.



[b]This is not a debate topic. So please no discussions on who is right and who is wrong. Just present you facts and let the addon maker judge if he will use them or not.
