Cool. I am doing similar this Thursday, but on a smaller scale.The video for showing how to get hover tanks in PME on YouTube has been set to private... Which stinks... I've been setting up to rush the quest line for the past 3 weeks... And my go date is tomorrow once the gbg starts.
I am currently in progressive era, quest is up to the last part of PME, and I am mapped up to TF (all but one sector in agadar is complete)
If all goes well, I plan on questing up to 'The end of this chapter' in PME, negotiating the last sector in Agadar, and then completing the quest 'The end of this chapter'... if all goes well It should start a quest line in TF skipping the rest. Then i will rush that quest line, and spend diamonds to explore as i work to get the 4 hovertanks, negotiating everything.
This should allow me to be fighting progressive era troops in gbg with hover tanks... ... ... that is if i did everything correctly...
I am going from HMA to LMA and getting the CA units, hopefully within minutes of aging up.
