All Ultra Modern:

Italy/Germany: Orso VTMM (Veicolo Tattico Medio Multiruolo

ďBig brotherĒ, sort of, to the Iveco Lince. This would very nicely finish off the current tactical lineup of the Italians, except for the Puma. But the Puma is being phased out. The airmobile and airborne troops still have theirs because it is very light and can be easily airlifted/airdropped. But the Italians discovered the Lince was a bit too light, it did not stand up well to enemy fire and mines in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Puma is a very good looking vehicle, thoughÖ

UK/Germany: M3 Amphibious Rig.

Itís a truck. Itís a bridge. Itís a ferry. Itís a really interesting, well designed and aesthetically pleasing piece of river crossing equipment. Very nice. It would probably be only 2 per pack, but it would be worth it.

China: ZTL-11 8x8 amphibious 105mm assault gun

This would be really easy for GHQ to do, because itís a gun variant of the ZBL-08 which they already do, in fact, they also do one other variant of the same vehicle. Low hanging fruit for GHQ.

France: EBRC Jaguar

Coming soon to replace various wheeled reconnaissance vehicles, Belgium is also buying them.

Russia: Bumerang.

I donít know why, but this one keeps coming back to me. The state of the art in Russian 8x8 armored personnel carriers.

They could package them in groups, including Yaks with various support weapons.

That would be the Yak Attack Pack.

Then there is the service-support Yak, which has a mobile field kitchen in a special carrying frame.
That's the Snack Rack Yak.

The one with the AA gun on its back is the Flak Back Yak.

And the ones carrying shelter halves for tents... the shack yaks. And this carrying passengers around towns for money... The hack yaks. And those for carrying tools for vehicle recovery... the jack yaks. And those intended to help other yaks with their psychological challenges... the quack yaks. How about those carrying the unit sleeping bags... the sack yaks. Arghhhh! Too many yaks, no yuks!

For when environmental conditions require evacuation of human by-roducts, it will be carried in plastic bags by... Yuk yaks.

Is this getting bad enough yet?

Steel Arrows "Westland Wasp helo with HOT atgm mount "

I would put a vote in for the Westland Scout AH1.

The Wasp was the Navy version which was sold to more Countries but the Scout was built in larger numbers (British Army).
A must for the Brits in the cold war. If you want it armed it would need the SS.11 ATGM (2 each side) with a roof mounted sight on the L/H side.

I think this would be a good seller!
