While this product is closer to the mark then it?s Showroom stablemate on APCs, it?s still not that great. What is purported to be a product covering light tactical vehicles, ie., jeeps, what we get instead is a collection of Fast Attack Vehicles more in keeping with G.I. Joe or Megaforce then really useful vehicles.

Basicly every ?jeep? in the book has a) holds 1-2 crew; b) carries some weapon behind the cab in a remote turret like that MG jeep from the early Marvel Comics GI Joe. Now, while I wouldn?t mind seeing a few of these FAVs in a product, none of them really vary beyond that theme. It would have been nice to see something more practical to an adventuring or real military group in here. Something with a bit more capacity and something NOT looking like it came out of a game of Command & Conquer. Give us something like an R-SOV, or Wolf, or some of the new USASOC-employed HMMWVs (having a brain cramp and can?t remember their nomenclature now).

Again, I implore UKG that if you do products like this again, give a look at real world designs and developments and try and track down some folks with practical knowledge. Yeah, a dune buggy with a rocket launcher looks really sexy, two I guess are cool. 70% of you product on that theme is a bit much.

While we appreciate your feedback, we feel that your primary criticisms are a bit anachronistic, given that the product details imagined military vehicles of the far future that may not necessarily adhere to the standards of modern military vehicle classification or design. And as the product is aimed at a space opera type future then realism based on hummers is not what we were looking for.
You may however wish to watch out for our forthcoming range of vehicles aimed at Modern/Post Apocalytic vehicles as these may fit your requirements more.
Anyway thanks for the feedback.
