[Suggestion] MRAPs for Insurgency

I suggest adding some Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected Vehicles  to our Insurgency mission
Mainly because driving the lightly armored Jackals and HMMWVs into the dense urban envirnonment of center-Zhargabad often ends in people shot to bits inside said vehicles.
Secondly to counter the massive threat of roadside bombs around Zhargabad, a HMMWV hit by an IED ends 7/10 times with burning metal and mushed marines, while an MRAPkeeps its occupants alive but still needs to be (in most cases) abbandoned, making IEDs still a bitch.

In our current modpack we have a whopping three MRAPs to choose from.

1. The M-ATV aka. HUNTER (Vanilla A3)

Fielded in 2009 it is the newest of the bunch. Many people don't like it because "MUH FUTURE BULLSHIT", which is a shame, because the unarmed variant would be a good addition to the public, because it is very plausible in that configuration and it would be a shame not to use the ONE well made vehicle that vanilla A3 has.
Comes with a rear-facing camera, seats for 3+driver, same as an unarmed humvee and many amazing colours such as RangerGrey, and RangerGrey.

2. The RG-33 (RHS US FORCES)
Produced since 2007 it has seen action in the Global War on Terror, comes from Red Hammer Studios with poorly designed interior and a protected M2 on top, it looks bad but does the job, fits 7+Driver+Gunner

3. The Cougar Ridgeback (3CB BAF_Vehicles)
The Cougar produced since 2002 comes with a protected M2, 2 firing ports for passengers, rear-facing camera, SLAT-Armor and pace for 8 people

That's a convincing argument from from Warzombie. I'm convinced. Anyone of those will be fine.

For the cougar. Gun cannot be aimed properly as you do not look down the sights you just look in the direction the gun is facing and you do not look up and down with it.

1. We won't be adding the base Arma unit.
2. It is a piece of shit
3. You still are unable to aim down the sights which is a deal breaker for public.

But the base Arma vehicle is in use IRL...It's the Oshkosh M-ATV which is being used by the US Army.

Jefro, the Oshkosh M-ATV is not a quadbike. It's the base arma 3 vehicle / Hunter > https://en.wikipedia.org/ ... wiki/Oshkosh_M-ATV this IRL.

Also guys have you seen this mod ? > http://www.armaholic.com/ ... page.php?id=26446

May i ask why you won't add at least an unarmed M-ATV, i know that the GMG/HMG is bullshit from the future but there's nothing wrong with the base model without RWS. It's more realistic than patroling in the M113

The HMG M-ATV is nothing but a Crows M-ATV with a different name. It is nothing from the future.

The silliest thing about it is the rear canvas.
