British FV432 "Bulldog" APC

by
cleggy


Description:
Introduced in the 1960's as the standard 'battlefield taxi' of the British Armed Forces the FV432 series AFV has filled many roles in it's lifetime; APC, Ambulance, Command Post, Mortar Carrier, Mine Layer and more.
The Mk3 version has a new drive train, ERA and bar armour, defensive electronics suite and improved crew protection.

The 'bulldog' is an upgrade to the aging FV432 series British APC. With a new drivetrain, the addition of ERA and bar armour, an anti-IED electronics suite and improved crew protection it was designed to relieve the operational burden on the Warrior.
After seeing action in Iraq it was deemed 'unsuitable' for deployment in Afghanistan and was sent to the knacker's yard.

What you get:
The 'Ned Kelly' variant - so named because of the Australian designed 'bucket' turret.
Variant with remote weapon station in woodland and desert camo.
Variant with 'hypothetical' armour upgrade in woodland camo.

I can't claim this model is 100% accurate but hopefully I've done the old girl some justice.


Installation:
As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game
content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please
visit our FAQ.

When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.

Notes:
The RWS variant runs a script which rotates the gunner to man the weapon station when viewed from the cargo space (if he is turned in).
The script is triggered by a 'GETIN' eventhandler focused on the player - it won't work if you 'moveincargo' yourself.
