Just released from your 3CB mod team is an update to our @3CB_BAF_Vehicles mod, adding the much-anticipated Jackal 2.

We have taken this model, which Aplion released open source since he finished working on it, and have fixed all the bugs (zero rpt errors), plus added a number of improvements:
- fixed bone skeleton errors
- fixed speed wobble
- fixed gunners field-of-view
- added sling-loading capability
- added FFV (firing from vehicle)
- added integration of long-range radio (TFAR) in vehicle

Please congratulate the mod team consisting of Andy, Evrik, Lifetap and Goodson for the excellent work they have done to bring this to fruition.
Super job guys.

BACKGROUND
Jackal 2 is a high mobility weapons platform, with a unique air-bag suspension system allowing rapid movement across varying terrain.
It is designed to protect personnel against roadside explosions and mine attacks (the chassis is heavier than its predecessor to give additional protection). Jackal 2 is armed with a General Purpose Machine Gun for crew protection and can carry either a Heavy Machine Gun or a Grenade Machine Gun as the main weapons system in the fire support role.
The gun ring has been moved forward to give a 360 degree sweep of fire, as opposed to the previous rear-fire only position on the original Jackal. 

FEATURES
4 variants comprising 2 in desert camo, 2 in woodland, armed with L2A1 HMG or GMG.
Driver, Commander, Gunner + 2 passenger seats both with FFV.
Sling loadable by Chinook or Huron.

REQUIREMENTS
None

These look sweet. Especially like the mud on the green camo one.

Out of interest what is their carrying capacity ? More or less inventory than a landrover? What's the limit of items that can be loaded via AGM?

congrats guys.

Looks brilliant, very impressive work from all those involved. On behalf of 3CB, the time and effort put into these mods is hugely appreciated!
