Tanks IFVs and LAVS

I've already gone in depth about the various aircraft used in fallujah so I thought I might as well do the same with the ones named in the title while also asking various questions and how they'll function in game starting of with the LAV- 25.

So the LAV in the game serves as way to both resupply and escort badly wounded squad mates, but will it also be able to engage targets?, the LAV-25 utilizes two weapon systems, the main one being the M242 bushmaster and two M240s mounted on top, the 25mm autocannon being the main armament and most powerful useful for suppressive fire since it houses 210 rounds of 25mm ammunition.

The IFV Bradley was another common sight in fallujah however unlike the LAV the Bradley has not yet been confirmed for the game though I like to think it will be due it's presence in fallujah, it uses the same autocannon as the LAV, but also serves as an APC as its able to also transport soldiers and also has two TOW missles and an M240, it's likely we'll see these 3 armaments listed here but, it's unclear if they'll have a mission were your deployed via a Bradley.

The next one is the M1 Abrams this one needs no introduction it's the main battle tank of the U.S military, and it saw extensive use in fallujah it utilizes the M256A1 as its main cannon as well as a 50 cal M2 browning and M240, this is one I can definitely will probably be in the game due it's extensive use in fallujah another way the Abrams could be used is also to destroy booby trapped building as there are many accounts of propane tanks placed in buildings and one of the ways these were dealt with was by having an Abrams blow it all to hell.

Re: Tanks IFVs and LAVS

In addition to these vehicles being utilized, I also discovered weeks back that the power was shut off in Fallujah during the invasion, but during the reveal trailer you can see some few lights on in the small rooms that the buildings have, I'm wondering if it was an oversight on the devs's behalf or if there were in fact still functioning lights when the Marines went inside the rooms.

It's likely insurgents would make use of thier light sources or there were in fact still functional lights in some houses.

Yes, that was my third guess, that they used their own light sources (the candle at Sound Design SITREP and the light when the Marines enter the basement before they encounter the family in the IGN Reveal gameplay is a dead giveaway for example) and that some stayed on.

Curious to see how the rest of that mission will play out, I'm hoping we'll see some longer gameplay in the next SITREP were all Waiting patiently and it should be out soon, in the meantime I'll continue posting to the forums till I run out of stuff to talk about.

Re: Tanks IFVs and LAVS

This is a great question, so thanks for asking.

Yes, there will be LAVs, AAVs, Abrams, and Bradleys in the game, but they will be introduced at different times. Most of them will engage enemies (the Abrams doesn’t automatically engage from the main gun).
