I think we'll have to get a ruling for The Powers That Be on this one.
 I still think no APC should go higher than a 2.  Even the Centurion
tanks that the Israelis converted to APCs still have an open fighting
compartment.  If the ruling comes down and it's a 3 for APCs, I'll go
with it, but calling an inch or two of aluminum _armor_ is quite a
stretch for me :)

I definately think the Bradleys are cool looking and would be neat on
the battlefield.  Imagine arming the TOW launcher for your cannon, and
getting vehicle-down behind a piece of terrain like the real ones do

M60A1 "the Beast" under construction
Why do tankers call infantry "Crunchies"??? Because they ARE!!!
