    @ErvenDynamics Thanks. It has some complex (at least to my standards) systems, so it might be a while before I post it.

    IFV’s have weapons that are used to provide direct fire support to troops, while APC’s only have weapons for self defense. @Leehopard

    Please define IFV and provide a clear standard for differences with APC.
    armament? armor? troop capacity?
    M113 APC roled as IFV in vietnam. Namer is as heavily armored as MBT but having only 12.7mm MG. Merkava(120mm) and BTMP-84(125mm) has troop capacity.
    it must be hard, because there's still no solid criteria for it in RL.

    btw, i have a really cool hovercraft concept in mind, it will be the most advanced and funny on SP. I wonder if you allow it on this challenge or make an exception for it (it will have an anti-infantry cannon)

    trust me, ask for at least 250 parts for a land vehicle, to avoid a ton of crap.
    Even me, a maniac on saving parts i need 400-500 parts for a decent vehicle.
