We Found it on New Dallas
For those of you who haven’t read the write up on New Dallas, the planet had a boneyard where they stored their outdated equipment that was hidden when the nuke that destroyed the capitol city went off and dropped a building on top of the entrance to the old, pre-terraforming living areas. In the lead up to this, much of the modern, or even semi-modern tech was used up fighting the Combine, the Capellans and the League. What I’m looking for here is Retro-tech. Something that would fit in the early to middle Age of War aesthetic, and for each class, I’m going to give an example of what that could be. I request submissions of what you would expect to find in such a site.

thoughts and comments welcome, does anyone think that 2 tons of ammo for the artillery is too little? maybe sacrifice the machine guns and the extra crew seats for more?

For a Long Tom, that's definitely not enough ammo.
