Default Any chance for another modern military issue?

Issues 3/55 and 3/57 were two of my favriote pyramids in a long time and just throwing it out there that there's some interest in similar issues in the future.

Now by all means I know that what articles you put in are what articles you get so this is just a wish list but some articles I'd like to see are:

An articles featuring a more in depth look on how modern(ish) artillery is done and how RAW can be expanded to model reality more.

A similar article perhaps going into more detial on man portable guided missile launchers.

And maybe another super detailed look into a military vehicle by the white tiger himself on a more modern western tank.

Once against this just some wish listing but I guess it never hurts to ask heh. In the mean time keep up the good work.

Sounds like Pyramid 3/XX "We need bigger guns". I'd be all for it.

It's a niche I could certainly help to fill.

I don't suppose that it's much of a surprise that I have some things I could write to this theme, too.

Ah nice! Looks like I managed to kick up some interest with my request.

@DouglesCole: I can't wait to see that aim maneuver hack of yours.

@Sir_Pudding: You already know I'm down for your article heh.

@Ghostdancer: Now this is a surprise, I'm used to seeing you do Monster Hunter/Dungeon Fantasy stuff so this should be intreasting.

@RodgerBW: The more the marrier, what do ya have in mind?

@Not Another Shrubbery: While I ain't saying SJG is a typical greedy corporation, the do need to make money so the more people willing to buy something covering this material, the more they're gonna notice so that works heh.

With all the interest you guys are showing I kinda wish I had something I could bring to the plate for an article.

I refuse to be categorized. :-) I might not look or act it - but I'm kind of a gun enthusiast. Ditto for the military. I never got to serve, but my family has been in damn near every war this nation has ever fought (and a few before it was a proper nation too). That said, I've done a ton of non-DF or -MH stuff too. Granted, much of it is related to magic or the supernatural, but that is one of my main interests.

Yeah, gurps seems to drawn in us guns/military types doesn't it heh. Which is all well and good for me, I've always been the "knows stuff guy" in my group so it's nice to be around people who I can learn from.

Now any chance we can get a hint at what ya planing?
