Is it likely we'll get the humvee's back?

As the title says, is it likely the humvees will see a return in squad?

Probably not. Even disregarding the license issues, humvees have been replaced in the US army too.

Iconic but sadly not really fit for purpose. Can't see why GM play the licence card they could do with all the advertising they can get.

Well its not just about using the Humvee by activision heavily in some games its also about driving to Promotions in Humvees with there logo on the side and licensing humvee-toys to a third party

and GM only sued after one year of negotiation with activision.

 

Its more like if your neighbor borrow your car, without asking you, and starts to paint his name all over it, and eventually starting to rent it to his Friends for money, and if you ask him if he would at least give you some of this money, his respons would be just a F*U, well...

can`t realy blame GM for suing ;).

It's more like your neighbour uses your car's image in his game/movie. People watching this movie or playing this game go "Oh hey, Titan's car is cool in neighbour's game/movie. I want one."

 

It's why I think Arma was always silly having the big TRIJICON ACOG license on their splash screen. If I was an optic manufacturer I'd want my product in every game and movie I could shove it into.

Well that is the case with every other game/FIlm they are not suing (there are tons of) ;)

 

Doesnt mean, that in future, if they succeed, they wouldnt think "well this was easy, lets make more money out of this"

There are 18,000 Humvee's in service & only 8,700 M-ATV's even though it its replacing them. As this game is a MILSIM, where are the humvee's?

Humvee's also can be used as 1,400 logi's.

The devs got rid of the humvees to prevent being sued by the company that builds them. Since they were sueing CoD.

in the last Ghost Recon (wildlands?) all the vehicles in that were hybrid designs meant to look like common brands/models and had hybrid names as well - i think they dodged legalities that way.

maybe Squad devs or a modder could "modify" the current hummer so it's not-a-copy and give it a made up name, like "bummer" or "Homer".
