On the flip side of Pickup bed types if carriers for 10 Wheelers ; how about Pickups with Flatbeds for Cargo ?
I've spotted numerous photos of 'Flatbed Pickups' on the net , but not really seen any in the UK . Body would weigh slightly less - 1,900-1,950lbs perhaps - & less initial Cargo Spaces - 8? - but with potential for more to be stacked . I'll use one in an upcoming scenario , mounting a Snow Machine on the back !

After seeing a few problems with Vehicular Grenade Launchers during games recently , really think their stats/design need looking at ?
Perhaps a short ranged 5 shot Mini Launcher ( that can use 10 shot std GL mags though ) , or a revamp to a 1 Space Weapon .

Civilian players battling on the Road , take one look at the AGL , & sigh with longing . So much so many of us GMs let them use AGLs in wilder less civilised areas . Especially if Bandits & Wreakers use them against players to !

One Shot Fire Extinguisher :
5lbs & $50 per 10 Spaces of Vehicle being protected ( round up ) , No Spaces .
Plastic tubing that runs through a vehicles interior , where if melted by Fire bursts & sprays heat scouce with Fire Retardant Chemicals . Has a 1-4 chance of putting out internal Fires & 1-3 of those on external equipment ( Tires , EWP, Car Top Carriers etc ) - 1-3 & 1-2 to those on Gas Engined vesicles .
Replacing a OSFE is a Medium Job for a Mechanic , but takes 1 hour per 5 Spaces of Vehicle mounting it ( round up ) due to fiddly pipe work installation , with resulting labour costs .

Saw this item on the BBC's Tomorrows World program about 22 years ago & always thought it would make a good CW item .
Tubing was less than an inch in diameter & extinguished an Compact car's engine fire in under a second . This demo had it installed under the bonnet ( hood ) , but I could easily see it extended throughout a vehicle ? Even a large bus wouldn't have 5 Gallons of liquid in it's One Shot , thus the No Spaces . Pressure cut off valves & cross plumbing would prevent issues of tubes being severed during Combat . Compatible with FEs, IFEs & PFEs , a OSFE activates after those items are triggered - often as a last ditch to prevent damage/explosion .
How do those stats seem ? Any feedback welcome :-)

Bumping this up as I had an urge to play around with some of this stuff. I might even add another item or two. ;)

Ever tried to find honey on the road and just could not? Well the mobile bee hive comes complete with wax, a queen bee and over 3000 bees for your honey producing pleasure! Release the hive in case of pedestrian trouble and the bees will do the rest!
And of course this will obviously lead to Laser Guided Bees as an anti Pedestrian weapon ! ;-)

Holy Necromancy Batman!
A 15 year old thread has returned from the dead.

Some pretty neat ideas in here for CWC.
But I thought that they moved all the Classic stuff to the sub forum so that all us old Grognards wouldn't confuse the new 6th edition kids.

Anyone cracked the point value calculations yet so we can write 6th ed cards for our own wacky equipment like the Laser Guided Bees?
