    Nice one, ripptide. There's been a debate going on about upgrade paths for cavalry :D -- this should DEFINITELY fit in there somewhere ... :goodjob:

    @Mr. Will -- armored recon & general mayhem-making. "ACAV" is short for either "Armored Cavalry" or "Air Cavalry" depending on context.

    Thanks all)
    there' a bit about its history in the readme Mr. Will, basically it was an up-armoured and up-gunned version of the basic M113 that was used in Viet-Nam

    I use it for an American UU replacing the mech infantry. It has better attack than it's counterpart. Not too accurate but what the hell.
