The title says it all, the vehicles we think to be created for BF2. I'm not including any rare or stupid crap because its not needed like these vehicles are. Its nothing official but I think if it goes well people can suggest vehicles to add to the list that are important and it can be stickied so we dont get the new people every day suggesting the same things once we hit BF2. It can be moved to suggestions later if neccessary. Vehicles that are ready or are WIPs are bold. No handweapons, static AT/Artillery or airplanes are included at this point in time.

Seems like an easy thing for our "mass quality producing devs"
remember we're concentrating on afrika first. so 70% of that list isnt going to be done for a while.

I think seeing as the Africa campaign is first i would definately like to see the 25lbr with its tractor unit and ammo trailer, what do you people think?
wouldnt the african campaign consist of a large variety of resistance forces from the invaded countrys? I hardly hear anything bout it but im sure they had armies too, as well as a variety of interesting weapons and vehicles.
you mean the colonies that were already controlled by either britan or germany?
or native african tribes?
Well, I'm sure a kitten isn't going to die someplace if I decide to model something not on that list.
Besides you forgot the Ford GPA.
Well there were Polish forces under Brit command, as well as other commonwealth such as Australian, Indian, NZ etc, and iirc some french.
I'd let the devs get the basic nations and equipment done 1st and worry about other nations and less common equipment later.
