Rescue Pump addition to MCUK

    • Is there any movement on this? Most UK fire services combine rescue and fire fighting into one vehicle, some, like Hereford & Worcester have heavy or ultra-heavy variants but they are all fire engines to a point.

      Rather than having new missions can we have realistic vehicles to do the missions with. If we are going to get this as a standard vehicle, can some mechanism be put place in to retrofit existing fleets to make it fair on members who’ve already grown on the UK version.

      The only way i could see this being added is the same way the CARP or Quint was done by making it a reward otherwise you would have to make everything such as OSU( Operational support unit) which carries BA tanks but also environmental things.

      Why would you? We already have an Air unit in the US game which I use as an OSU on my setup in that game. There’s a difference between asking for something simple such as a Pump being a rescue unit too and having every single variation of unit available.

      Yes... so we're requesting the very same units which already existing in the US version.
      This makes the UK version pointless atm.
      The game is partially pointless as it is because there's so little content. We want the units because they are what we have in the UK as well. The difference will be primarily in what units are required for missions I hope. The rescue pump and CARP exist in the UK so why shouldn't we have them in the UK version?

      Sure they are. Agreed with you; Just don't really understand why a UK version was needed, as it could be played more or less realistically on the US version.
      The only difference is that they've renamed some applainces, but nothing added what we didn't got already on US ver.

      Seeing as we were always told by Sebastian that a UK version wasn't coming, it would be safe to say that we all made-do with what the US version had like an obsession with ALPs but we're quite happy. When the UK version was announced, I was really excited but now I'm annoyed as it's not the high quality we expected and now there's 2 more versions with more on the way? Not sure how the company can know so much about so many services. Oh wait, they don't. So yeah, this is where we're at.
