A new Hoplite APC sculpt was spotted on Phil's desk this week. With the new Peace River infantry that was released late last year we though it was time to give the Hoplite a redesign and make it a bit bigger so that it looks like it could hold 20 infantry. With big tires to show its improved off road ability in the badlands. The image also shows the old Hoplite and other faction APCs to see the size of the new one.
Players can continue to use the old Hoplite when the new one is released, but we will be re-tasking it as the Mastiff APC for Peace River's Peace Officer Corps and continue to sell it that way. The Mastiff only holds a squad of 10 infantry, so the small size of the old Hoplite works well for it.
The next update of the Blood Debt Peace River Armylist, later this month, will include this change. Checkout the other Hoplite sneak peak photos of the command variant with sat uplink, rocket variant, mortar variant and light field gun variant below.
