    Semper Fi

    Combat outposts and Forward Operating Bases will likely never be the intent for an electric vehicle because, like mentioned before, using a generator to charge an electric vehicle would be counterproductive. I'm not an electrician, but it might also cause issues with Duke systems and Jester vehicles and the like that track and block signals (before you jump on me about an electric engine not emitting a signal, do some research on Sigint capex. If you don't know what it is, don't ask).

    However, that being said, there is a perfect opportunity for vehicles powered by valence within the larger bases. While military vehicles typically run on JP-8/MOGAS, any base of size has numerous civilian contractor and OGA vehicles that are ONLY used on the base and run on plane old gasoline; they aren't even authorized/legal to leave and never require the ability to travel extensive distances. This would be a tremendous gain for both the Army and valence!
