Still on the early stages and so the vehicle does not have a specific size or platform at the moment.
Any advice on the current issues would help shape the outcome and will update and upload the design as it progresses as a thank you!
Thanks in advance.
my opinion for any platform would be your white papers, then look at mission capabilites via addon packs to change the vehicle's primary mission.
not one vehicle will be the best at everything but if the base design can do alot well then addon mission packs enhance strengths and reduce/control weakness.
sooner than later a new design platform will have to be attained as using a landrover as a chassis is almost at its max in terms of loading, although for a light weight vehicle it is alot better than some.
If the replacement vehicle is for something like the snatch I would look at a few things.
2/acceleration and turning cirlce
as your road wieght will determine immediatly your base protection.
