Will's post on polls and Bose's subsequent mentioning of Humvees reminded me of a little dilemma we've got with our Humvee's currently. Here's the situation:

The real humvee's of the era (early 2010's) use the same all round gunner shield that the 50 cal humvee uses because there's no real reason not to. However, the only Humvee that has a MK19 GMG ingame doesn't have any gunner shielding, and the only variant that does have the shield is a czech AGS-30 version.

The decision was made before my time to use the AGS-30 variant and I'm inclined to agree, since giving players the correct protection is better in my eyes than giving them the correct ammunition, especially when they can't resupply like the 3CB vehicles and there's no external markings to make them look non-american. Put your vote up top and put any information that you think will sway people's decision in the thread below.

Can I propose an option 3 to just get rid of GMG humvees on insurgency?

Given the civpop proximity and my knowlege or RoE for that time frame, there is no way you would be allowed to use GMG's

There's a point that has been made in the MK19's favour that, given the nature of the weapon as a long range automatic death machine, having no protection is likely to make people be more careful when using the asset.

Oops, ninja'd by chaza

In response, the GMG vehicles are currently allowed because it's the player's discretion whether they take the risk of hurting civilians. For further discussion I'd recommend making a new thread if you wish to propose removing them

Fair enough.

In that case, I am in favour of the non-protected variant, as it adds a huge risk to using it in CQB

This vote is now finished with the MK19 variant winning out, the variants will be switched once my life gets out of the shitter.
