They're from someone who is in the alpha and provided them to that site I linked to.

To be honest, I think we only really care about hardware NDA's that HWC have committed to. But yes, everyone in the Alpha test has had to agree to some kind of NDA, so they risk being booted from the Alpha if they talk about it.

Other than sometimes hitting "invisible walls" randomly, and the first time I loaded the game and couldn't respawn or open menu, it is actually pretty smooth.

Not playing the alpha at all so I am not sure what the sound is like. I can tell you though that the driver can barely hear the cannon firing, even when its right over his hatch. Its a very muted thumping sound to him, same as the guys in the back hitching a ride. To the turret crew its slightly louder...only because usually their hatches are open. If they are hatches down it isn't that loud to them either.

To anyone standing on the ground near the LAV its a totally different story. Especially if they are forward on the mid line of the vehicle. All kinds of videos on youtube if anyone is interested.

once again, field experience for the win!

you think game developers actually hire military consultants these days to help them make it as realistic as possible?

if so,mr perry,you may be needed :)
