Overview
Recreate your favorite moments from the Gulf War with these four armored vehicles with full feature set. The damage system has also been improved so that light damage will only scratch them, and explosive autocannons are not as overpowered. Each vehicle has both its original skin and a "generic" skin lacking any faction identifying markings (Except the Humvee, which never had it in the first place).

Each vehicle has been tailored to have its own role in the battlefield, and to feel as good as they possibly can.

HMMWV
The "Humvee" is a lightly armored car with roof-mounted M2 heavy machine gun. Fast-moving light transport with three seats for passengers. Its machine gun is useless against armored vehicles, but can be effective against infantry. It has a 100-round magazine capacity, meaning it must be reloaded every 100 shots.

BMP-2
Soviet armored transport with 2A42 30mm autocannon and 9M113 Konkurs ("AT-5 Spandrel") ATGM. Slower, and bigger, than the Humvee, but comes with a more effective main gun and a missile launcher able to kill tanks. It is capable of carrying 8 men. However, its crew are unable to use any of its weapons, and it is not as well protected as a tank. The BMP-2 is an infantry fighting vehicle, or IFV, meant to support infantry assaults rather than taking on enemy tanks directly - however, it can go toe-to-toe with an MBT, thanks to its anti-tank missile launcher.

T-72
Soviet main battle tank. Its 125mm cannon fires dual-purpose HEAT shells capable of destroying light armored vehicles and doing damage against infantry. However, it is also able to fire the 9K112 Kobra ("AT-8 Songster") ATGM from its main gun, which is extremely effective against tanks but is slow to reload, and must be manually guided along its path. Still, this can extend its effective range beyond what its gun would be able to reach. It has one crew weapon station for the NSVT 12.7mm heavy machine gun, comparable to the M2, mounted on its turret roof.

M1A1 Abrams
The star of the show, the M1A1 Abrams. With a 120mm cannon firing tungsten long rod APFSDS shells, it deals monstrous damage, able to easily match the likes of the T-72 with ease. The Abrams has no access to ATGMs, with the driver instead having access to an M240 coaxial machine gun. It can fit two crew members, each with access to a roof machine gun - an M240 .30 caliber GPMG and an M2 Browning .50 caliber HMG. Fast, well-protected, and with a powerful, fast-firing gun, this is not a tank to scoff at.

i was on one when it was not firing, then on flat grass it worked

i think why the atgms are not firing is because of the different maps

Why is Abrams so fast?

GMod's cache is okay. I've got CSS and episodes.

Both those effects are default HL2 ones. Something appears to be seriously wrong. Try validating your cache?

I've already got it.
