I've been reading Shadowrun stuff for a couple hours now.

More pics of the vehicles:
Image
the Badger APC is a relatively new addition to U.S. ground forces, which is equippped with plasma cannons instead of conventional artillery cannons.
Image
It's also got a Gatling gun and grenade launchers (which can be loaded with smoke or frag grenades) for infantry.
Image
The doors are in the rear, although there is also a hatch right above the Gatling turret as well.
Image
The top lifts off to reveal interior of the Badger, which can carry a squad of troops as well as the vehicle crew. Note the thick armor on the sides.
Image
The F-50 Eagle is a two seater fighter that is equally capable of taking on air and ground targets
Image
The standard armament is two 20mm Vulcan cannons, two javelin missiles, 8 rockets (stored in the missile/bomb bays, which account for the bulges in the wings), and a heavier bomb for ground targets.
Image
An overhead view of the Albatross, which has a pilot and copilot/gunner. It has front and rear turrets, which can also be controlled by an additional two gunners. It also has two rotating GT rocket pods.
Image
In addition, there are two side door guns that can be brought to use against enemy targets. The albatross can carry and additional 6-8 passengers in addition to the pilots. Most often these are 101st Airborne guys, who jetpack out of the Albatross into combat zones.

To clarify a few other things:
-Uncle Sam's hat was made by putting white-out strips onto a top hat and then using sharpies to color it, so this accounts for the cake-like appearance of it. It was the best I could do on short notice.
-The reason that there are no African-American troops is pretty simple: I just don't have any right now, otherwise there would be.
-In order to prevent territory overlap with Silent Sigfig's U.S.A. I'm going to say that my U.S.A. exists either in a different time or in a parallel universe.

I understand that's the actual wording, but we didn't want to copy it exactly word for word, so I tried to pick a phrase that was similar.

Great job, this stuff is awesome! one of my only complaints is that there aren't more peaches, and they aren't allowed near the heavy weapons. My other one is that you might want to invest in some actual treads for the apc, it looks a little off right now. anyway, great work, I'd love to see a battle with these guys and the assyrians sometime!

All of your vehicles are awesome. The Badger and Albatross are my favorite. Also, having everything be red, white, and blue makes me think of Team America: World Police. And that has some great Brikwars potential.

Might I suggest a suitable Elite Special Force?
