What should I equip it with?

 

I'm thinking vents, toolbox and spall liner as I think it's a bit of a sitting duck for arty. Particularly at traffic lights.

 

Or should I put all my efforts into getting the next turret, because the one I have seems to have no gun?

Well, toolbox goes without saying, it is a Ford after all. Also vents is definitely a must unless you already have AC as stock configuration. As for the third one it's really up to you. 

 

As far as crew skills go, it has decent view range with the 360-degree view ports, but they are very large and prone to damage, even from pebbles flung by friendly tanks driving in front of you, so I'd recommend recon for commander to reduce the negative effect. Also hp/ton isn't magnificent, so driver should focus on learning off-road driving for when you don't have clean asphalt underneath you.

Safe stowage is also good. You don't want handbags, mobiles and other stuff flying around if you want to do a handbrake turn.

I've never even tried a handbrake turn, and with the new physics I'm not sure I want to try now! (Especially as I very nearly turned it over once before)

 

Due to the lack of guns I'm currently parking in bushes and spotting. You see some very interesting stuff. :B

Upgrade the engine to the volvo, 2.5L 5cylinders turbo - it exists on the focus ST i believe.

 

Then slap a GTX3582r on it and enjoy 700++ BHP and 4th gear* burnouts :trollface:

 

 

 

* enjoy it fast, because at that torque level the gears want their freedom and they get it equally fast :hiding:

How much km do you need to unlock the 2010 Focus RS500?

Well I've done 200,000km and there's no sign of it yet.

You would get it and it would then be nerfed instantly, into a Ford Fusion.

I drive a 1976 "Lada 2103". It's made from stalinium and with super heavy spal-liner it still weights only slightly above the ton. (~1050kg) With new physics behaves pretty well since it's RWD. Oh, and it's red communist colour cammo, extra lucky RNG with traffic lights.

Well fuel of course. ;)

 

Then repair kit and food for when (not if) it breaks down.

Siema version of that would be "Ford gówno wort" - Ford worth crap, if you want to translate it literally

Although there is "nie każda morda pasuje do Forda" - not every face fits the Ford:P which can be actually the case

That car, and the Mk II RS2000 or Mk I Mexico, are the only things get Ford off the list of Companies I'd Like to Nuke.

You clearly have no idea at all what you just said.

 

But for a 2003 Ford Focus there is only one upgrade, a sunstrip with your name and the name of your loved one! Plus perhaps a pair of knickers hanging from the rear view mirror, and in a 2003 Ford Focus you wouldn't be looking in that anyway.......
