Am I the only one noticing _Combat Showcase_ not getting much attention in this thread? Might that have something to do with how the designs had to be fiddled-around-with long after publication (not least any design with CA -- the _Challenger_, for one)?

Personally I didn't like to divisional format VG3 and the Combat Showcase. I use the books for picking out baddies for my players to fight.

In road fights I really don't care about division, but I might want to find, a bike say.

Also I discovered CW at the classic level and preferred the 3-4 projection line drawings to the blobby cartoon "ready to play" graphics.

I also thought a lot of the designs were niche or seemed to be one-trick ponies. With a custom car that is fine, but I'd rather roll my own. "Production" cars need to be a bit more rounded, especially if they are road models.

I am not sure what the logic for a lot of them was.

The T-32C Hays Texas Rangers' Luxury from 'When Duty Calls' in ADQ #6/2 is a great all round vehicle .

For a improved combat version the T-32H 'Maverick' from Nightmessenger pages , drops the IR , Active Suspension , Spoiler , Passenger etc for Heavier Armour , Fire & internal protection .

Not sure if those count as "official" or not. (I *know* calling anything from _Nightmessenger_ "official" would probably cause heart attacks in some quarters. :) )

The Wyvern from the AADA Vehicle Guide, Vol. 2, pg. 18. It just "clicks" for me. The Trapper and the Iron Horse tie for 2nd place.
