I am in. Either an Abrams, T-59, or T-72. Could be a great campaign.

Maybe include both OIF and Desert Storm/shield?

What about aircrafts, would they by allowed for the campaign? If so, I would build either a OH-58D or UH-60L from my unit when we deployed to Iraq. If not I could always build one of our humvees that we had.

Hey Jeff, I was a 15J which is a 58 electrical and armament repairer, but my last year and half in I ran our production control office. In Iraq we mostly flew board patrols along the Syrian board even though our unit was split between 3 different FOBs with different set missions.

Jon yes you can consider the 58 a gunship even though its really an armed scout. We flew most of the apache missions since they were either down for maintenance or being hit by mortars and rockets all the time. Ill just build this for the aero campaign instead. I might build my old M923 with S280 on the back of it for this campaign.
