VHS is an Croatian assault rifle and it will be official Croatian Armys assault rifle.
Its real, it costs to produce about 1200+ US dollars and they sell them about 1600+ US Dollars.

It has integrall sight that is used for regular use and also for grenade launcher... It can have at once bayonet, scope and nightvision or heat vision on it plus lasers. Its true modern day rifle that currently can kick M16, AK47 and above. Its cheap and good quality.

You should use for you character best helmet in the world, the Croatian BK-6 Helmet.
Used by the Croatian Army, Czech Army, Bulgarian Army, United Arab Emirates Army, Lithuanian Armed Forces, Mexican Army, Spanish Army, Turkish Army, Pakistan Army, Malaysian Army, Saudi Arabian Army, Finnish Army, National Army of Colombia, Armed Forces of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Italian Army, Military of Hungary, Armed Forces of the Argentine Republic and by the police forces of the following countries: Croatia, UK, Spain, Republic of Macedonia, Egypt, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Colombia, Italy, Ukraine and by Argentina and by the UN demining committee.

I know that Croatian anti material rifle was also mentioned in some topics and thats ofcourse the RT-20 but there is version called RT-21 that is improved. The data on wikipedia are kinda obsolete... I hope you will agree with me that Croatia has currently the best assault rifle and helmet and the best sniper rifle to penetrate most armored vehicles. It can easily kill Bradley from 1 or 2 km. :D

You have a big folder in our data source repo with a lot of the stuff that hasn't made it in-game yet.

- C4 bomb ack
- vhs rifle ack
- assault rifle variant 2 data source (would it be called VHS2?)
- automag pistol data source
- heavy pistol unknown
- needler (and heavy variant) ack
- pulse laser (and long variant) ack
- XAW 95 ack (multiplayer only)
- Starfire interceptor data source (called Starchaser)
- coilgun (I have to re-do this one) ack
- EMP rifle data source
- Phoenix interceptor (the black on on the image with the dropships) no
- ugv unknown

unknown means, that i don't exactly know which model you are refering to.

I'm pissed that they dropped the prototpye verison and the anti-recoil system it had. It was friggin brilliant. But aparently, it made the rifle more expensive and difficult to mantain.

For simplicity (especially making maps), engine limitations, etc..

I could make a different alien ships, but it won't fit well with previosu designs.

ZE missiles.

3 different variants of the dropship.

Variant 1 is a rather simpel VTOL concept, with a single tail engine that bends down.

Variant 2 is a bit more sleeker with 4 engines- 2 on the wings and 2 on the back. A simial setup can be made with the bigger, rounder engiens from variant 1

Variant 3 is more sleeker in hull and it has a smoother drop to the cago bay. It's entire wing turn for landing. I had several possible ideas for the rear engines and wings, but almsot nothing I did feel right. I?m also contemplating putting 2 small vtol engines on the front, where the front winglets are now.

The 4th variant (no image)one is basicly variant 2, but with slightly different engiens and intakes (seen on previous page)
