Addon Info:
I decided to create an addon based heavily upon trucks that real-world US Army Special Forces teams use in Afghanistan and surrounding areas. I am working off of the many reference pics I have found online. I plan on including these different variants so far....

-Hilux (M134+Cargo)
-Hilux (M2+Cargo)
-Hilux (Mucho Cargo Positions)
-Hilux (Refuel)

Screenshots:









Some Reference Pics:




(Yes, I'm aware these are SAS troops - lol

Very interesting! i like this addon pack, it has a good perspective on unconventional...but real military used vehicles. if i may..i would like to suggest an all black one with black tints on the windows, and with a mounted machine guns coming out the side door..like the mounted machine guns coming out the two back side doors of the SF hummves in the ACE Mod, providing fire power from the side of the vehicles! and maybe slightly jacked it up a bit, having bars on the windows. if photos are needed let me know, and i will try to find it!

Hey, thanks for the positive feedback! I would be happy to extend the truck, add doors and turrets on the side doors, right now I am just trying to get the M134 turret to work. I had also thought about raising the truck a bit too, just want to avoid the "Monster Truck" look.

Thanks again,

-ADuke

P.S. I'd love to see some pics if you have them!

Thanks Stewy!! I will try to not dissapoint

soldier2390 : I would like to suggest one with a mounted machine gun coming out the side door..like the mounted machine guns coming out the two back side doors of the SF hummves in the ACE Mod, providing fire power from the side of the vehicle.

Done!

The Hilux looks great, Are you going to do a ammo truck version? I saw a Refuel for LogCap but not an Ammo truck. But seriously The trucks look Great!! Can't wait to use them in the Afgani Map.

Nice to see some merc/SF civil based jeeps. If i can give you a suggestion, it would be to dump the BIS M134 minigun and replace it mine. In case you don't know witch that is, you can check it out on NZXshadows hummers: the hosted files on armaholic
*In case you want to replace them, it would be best to check with shadow himself for the source files. Anyway, i give you permission to use my model and textures. Good luck.

@DaSquade = Thanks for the permission to use your M134! I contacted NZX Shadows.

@[ORC]S2 = I can definitely do a MK19 version.

@BosniaRat = Ammo Truck inbound. I will also slap a Door Turret on the Refuel/Ammo trucks so they can defend themselves a bit when they are humpin' gas and ammo to their buddies.

I decided that I won't raise the trucks up any higher than they already are, because in real life all the mounted weapons and cargo would add extra weight.

Oh, and if there are any addon makers out there who want to contribute some custom animations I could really use the help, I have some nifty ideas for custom cargo animations. If not, then I will just learn to do animations from the ground up, never done them before.

Hi Aduke,

I was wondering if I could make a humble request mate - would you perhaps consider cutting the doors and seats out of the default blackhawk and making a "Blackhawk Down" style helo where the pasengers sit on the floor?

Red made a good start on this idea (where the passengers dangled their legs over the side while sitting on the floor) but I think it only carried 4 passengers - way too few...as well as dangling their legs over the side - can you have some AI sitting in the cargo area too?

Thanks Aduke - just an idea I had in a similar vein to your SF trucks - never hurts to ask I guess ;)

Cheers mate - hope the trucks are going well!
Stew
