WWII German tanks? (The guns on the WWII battleship in my avatar could blow it up in 1 shot, if it still works[No offense, If i remeber the exibit on it correctly it blew up a few German ships])
As if any land vehice (old or modern) could ever survive a direct hit of a battleship's main guns...
But real naval battles between The US and the German navy in WWII weren't known to me so far...
The UN actually does use tanks, but they use the all-powerful M1A1 or M1A2(DU armor and better electronics).
Since the UN don't really have troops (and equipment) of their own, that's only partially true. If the troops they ask for, come from a country that uses the M1, then yes, they would bring their M1s (if tank troops are requested at all, which happens rarely on UN missions globally - at least for the peacekeepers with blue helmets) - otherwise these troops would bring other vehicles. BTW the British Challenger(2?) and German Leopard 2A6 (forgot the French one's name) are at least equally as good as the Abrams - in certain areas often even better. So much for "all-powerful
") Also no offense!
Well, there already is 1 military vehicle in simutrans, the C-130. We could add a C-5, [...] heliocopters (CH-47 carries 65 people).
I think (at least I hope I did) I said that military transport vehicles are a different matter than fighting vehicles (like tanks and battleships). OTOH helicopters don't exist at all in the game yet - but that might change one day.
an aircraft carrier,
Doesn't make all that much
sense as long as aircraft (of any type) in simutrans cannot take off and land on ships, does it?
There are also some military railcars (Mostly flatcars in the US, but there were passenger cars in th 40's.)
Question is: would anybody really recognize anything military about them? And are they truly "military" vehicles or aren't they just some sort of standard cars, maybe converted a little or just painted differently?
Military factories would be nice though.
Producing what? Where to? And in what quantities?
(Not meant as provocation - I'd really like to hear!)
Of course, it should be an addon, not standard equpiment.
I think we all agree on that (and apparently even did so from the beginning).
Also none of this is not meant to quarrel with you, Packer (or anyone elese)!(Above posted at 02-11-2006, 14:48:41)_______________________________________ _______________
