...Frontier. Insert this emoji to ensure everyone knows I'm joking. But I did have this weird idea. And for the record, I have already bought the game and was just fantasizing about the odd things you could do with Armored Brigade.
My first tour in West Germany, 74-75, I was an enlisted track driver. Drove an M577 armored command post (a high top M113 carrying lots of radios and maps etc., for 2nd Bde, 8th ID. I was an 11B (infantry) but when I got to 2nd Bde they realized I had two years of college, so after one day and night in an infantry company, they made me the brigade S2 clerk/track driver. I don't see any M577s in the game, but then it appears battalion and higher TOCs are not modeled. I want to play a game where I'm an M577 driver. So we need battalion TOCs.
Then my second tour, 85-88, after returning to college and getting my commission and spending time elsewhere, I was 8th ID PAO, yes, a REMF. I need a CUCV, that is, a Chevy Blazer. I was looking for wheeled vehicles but have missed them if they are there. I want to drive a Chevy Blazer around behind the front lines simulating having my guys take pictures and video of the guys in combat and see if I can dodge artillery and enemy direct fire.
Now all that is said halfway in jest, but with the addition of just a couple of elements, I could actually do that in this game. Surely if we can model resupply, as has been discussed, we can model important things like a 577 and a CUCV.
