« on: 29 January 2011, 14:53:21 »
Take the standard PO, give it an LBX Autocannon, CASE, and switch armor to FF and layer on an additional ton and a half. Simple upgrade that keeps the spirit of the vehicle while using new toys.

Though this one is a bit more advanced than even that. It has modern armor and case. Not just a gun swap.

Do you really need 30 rounds?

Occasionally, yes, particularly when you expect a heavy use of one ammo type or the other (usually cluster).  The armor level on the Po was fine, although another half-ton or so from FF wouldn't have been bad.
