The glorious Škoda

Recommended Posts

Hofer    20

Note: There is a few old threads covering this particular vehicle, allthough they're suggested in collection threads where other vehicles have been shot down. This one was never emphasized.

So, I'd like to suggest the addition of the Škoda Octavia to the servers.

Why you may think. This is why:

Taken from Wiki.

Škoda Auto, more commonly known as Škoda, is an automobile manufacturer based in the Czech Republic. Škoda became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group in 2000, positioned as the entry brand to the group

Notice the bold.

Chernarus is supposed to be equal to Czech Republic in this game, allthough fictional. This would mean that Škoda would be a Chernarussian car brand (or at least a very common brand in Zagoria), and therefore very common in the lands of Chernarus. We do have some old Škodas around, but we do not have one from around 2000-2005. This would make sense to have since the Civil War started in 2009 and the outbreak happened in 2012.

A few never civi cars than the Lada would be nice to drive around in, eh? It would also make Chernarussian characters proud and happy to drive around in "local" cars.

It would fit lorewise, and it would add another civilian car for us to have fun with. I for one love civilian vehicles, and therefore this would make sense to add into the game for me.

I have tested these cars on various Epoch servers and they function very nice, and they do also break down (which is a requirement from Tamaster).

What do you guys think?

The textures are a little shit, but most textures in Arma are shit so I see no game breaking problem with it.

+1 from me.

Agreed, if they have a high chance to breakdown like all the old Skodas.

What do mean by high chance to break down?

They look good, there's good reason why they would be on Chernarus. +1

Only complain is that wheels look way too big, but not very big issue if the car works well ingame.

Skoda had a reputation for being unreliable (prior to the recent VW buyout). I imagine them breaking down all of a sudden that was suggested earlier ;)

What sirens? I can't see any. Although didn't the Police car's sirens work? Also the UAZ flashes, so...ayedonoman

There's a bunch of different police variants of the car as seen in the Armaholic link above. I am sure that is what John is referring to.

An easy yes from me, they realistically fit into the setting and you can never have enough variants of civilian looking vehicles.

Not much to complain / argue on with this, a simple +1 can come forward.

None the less +1 from me. I do like these cars.

I like this. It'd be nice to have a more diverse and authentic car collection on the server(s).
