    Instead of mucking about with the old M1A1 thread, here are the improved files for the M1A2. Mesh has been considerably changed, colors, lighting and shadows improved, and unit anims resized. So, the tank..

    NEW VERSION

    corrected angles, new lights, anims fixed. look further along the thread for new files

    That's awesome.

    Would you consider making an LAV 25 or the US Army's new Stryker

    I can give them a try but not sure when they'd be done. As soon as I finish up the Euro ver of the M1A2 I need to spend a bit of time back on the mod stuff. I can find some good line dwgs for the LAV25, so it shouldn't be a prob, but can't seem to find any good side/top/front/rear line dwgs for the LAV3/Stryker family. Anyone else have better luck?

    In the M1A2 file there is a file that says M1A2DDefault.flc, ;) drop the extra D.:) that should do it.


    btw it works in game I did test it.

    How about making the M6 Bradley Linebacker? I dunno what should it replace, Its basically a Bradley Fighting Vehicle with a Rocket launcher instead of the 25mm autocannon turret...

    yea could look at that some time in the near future. Just finishing up a UN M113 and the ADATS, then was thinking about doing the ADATS version using the Bradley chassis, so it should fit in there as well
