AA Light/Medium Tank (+Customizable Lightning Idea)


Well, my whole point is that if there will be no bfrs and air vehs will have different flight mechanics, then there's a point in replacing a skyguard (or adding a new vehicle) with more armor.

Here're the suggestion images:










PS. Plus, there can be an ES variety.

Win. WIN! Customizable lightning would totally replace vehicles that are underused.

Plus maybe an APC lightning? With no guns and like.. 2 extra sits?

EDIT: Added it to OP.

Neat, new vehicle concepts are awesome. I know they said the are "Re-inventing PS1" but, to be frank I hope the vehicles are nothing alike, and blow me away.

I hope they resemble similar vehicles. But this is a great idea. I can totally see a light armored vehicle skill tree reaching from the base Lightning to a quick hit and run IFV (Infantry Fighting Vehicle).

I definitely support this line of thinking. I love customizable vehicles.

Hell yes! I love the lightning and being able to customize it would make it even better.

Re: AA Light/Medium Tank


This would be pretty cool. The lightning now seems mostly for transport or light hit and run ops, I could definately get behind retooling it as sort of a generalized one man support vehicle.

Re: AA Light/Medium Tank


I think a Lightning would be too small for an AA platform. Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of different turrets for the Lightning.

A medium tank body with quad AA guns on top would be sweet. As long as the AA guns can also shoot at ground targets.

Re: AA Light/Medium Tank


I do disagree with the lightening post. The lightening should be DIRT simple. To support team work.

I would like to see: Assault buggies with a lot of customization (choosing to mount a chain gun/ Missle launcher/ AA turret/ Pounder on a Marauder for example).

I just want ALL vehicles to have a range of weapon/ammo options so as to customize their role better.
