I've never tried FUBAR before and I want to give it a go for something new/different. Are there any generic vehicle stats out there? Things like a tank, apc, scout vehicle, other sort of armored fighting vehicles?

I could piece some together for myself, by why reinvent the wheel? I want some basic templates to try out before I start making up my own.

Thanks in advance!

There are some stats for Grav vehicles in the files section, to go with the Grav Armor rules for them, on the Forge of War Yahoo Group (FUBAR home).

Which vehicles are you specifically looking for? I've probably made cards for them. :)

I have some 6mm data cards on my website.
Maybe change the centimetres to inches.

Mine also have 2 speeds, some house rules which are on my site too.

Just some basic stuff Chris. FUBAR doesn't have any vehicle statted up, so I was just wondering what other people's takes were on basic vehicles.

Like how did you stat up a basic main battle tank? A light tank? A IFV? APC? Humvee/jeep/technical?

I'm just looking to get some ideas from people who've been playing for a while about how they stat up vehicles.

Excellent Angel! Thanks! That's what I had in mind.

I'm looking at statting up BMP-2s, Bradleys, Strykers, and M1A1s for my moderns.

Later I'm going to come up with stats for my WWII and Sci-fi vehicles.

Like I said, any imput here is appreciated! grin

Most of those "generic" archetypes would be found in the Rebel Minis FUBAR supplement. I haven't updated it since June of last year, but it has the Merka 5, Merka 9, Wolverine APCs, and the buggies. John Bear Ross have stated that the Merka 5 is the equivalent of the modern Merkava, and the Wolverine is based on the Bradley.

An uparmored modern HMMWV would have Light Vehicle Armor (5+), and a softskin would have 6+ vehicle armor. They would be armed with a .50 cal (HMG in FUBAR core rules) or a Mk19 (Light Anti-Tank Weapon in FUBAR core rules).

If you like, you could give wheeled vehicles an additional +2" of open movement on intact road surfaces.

The quality of the unit cards being for FUBAR continues to impress me. Which programs are you guys using?

Not mine!
Mine are very basic.
Something I decided to do as otherwise I would spend ages adding details and graphics and what not.
So clean and simple and easy and quickfor me.

I did them in Excel.

I've been using PowerPoint – a byproduct of working in training centers for so many years. But it works pretty well as far as laying out basic shapes, text, background, and cropping a small photo.

I'm going to post a tutorial on Dropship Horizon sometime next month.

Those are excellent Chris. Please do put up a tutorial!

Very nice cards, and a tutorial would be great!

Thanks, everyone. I'll see what I can knock together.
