Pretty comprehensive article,

Looks like the M60 is pretty good slightly better them the Leo1 and it is 16points for a platoon of 4..

Yeah, I like the variety, I think this comes closer to bringing the 'Mercans in like with the Soviets as far as options go,

seems like everyone is up in arms over the inclusion of the M247 Sergeant York and exclusion of the M2 Bradley. The M247 was only a prototype and 50 were built. I just find it funny everyone complaining about fictional vehicles in a fictional war.

York is there for one reason.

they already had plastic M60 hulls - easy add on small sprue for the turret.

Bradley would be all new tooling.

I bet anything it was a financial decision - not a game play one. My VADSs fill the Yorks roll already....

True but there is also the idea if you make what people want they will buy it vs forcing them to buy stuff they don't want just because its cheaper for you to manufacture. When FoW started they had no models and you could use any companies stuff.

Isn't TY a big seller already for battlefront, so why not make a bradley, everyone has been crying for it.

Probably wait till pathfinder is done before trying to run an iron kingdom rpg, as for warmachine next fnf i can bring some cryx. Reading the iron kingdom books is making me really want to paint up the rest of my cryx.
