Wow. I can admit that looks pretty freaking awesome. I agree it should be in ATS but if it isn't, there's a chance it will be made as a mod.

That's a really cool truck. It's like it was designed for an arcade-racing video game or something, something you'd see in NFS.

I'd love to have this one in ATS!

Its got the same steering wheel as the Merc MP4, just without the merc badge :p
Bit of research has uncovered why :p Mercedes-Benz Trucks, Freightliner, Western Star, Fuso and BharatBenz (Specialises in the indian truck market) are all owned by the Daimler, hence why the cascadia's have the same steering wheel as the MP3 Actros, and the new Western Star has the same steering wheel as the MP4 Actros :)

Picture is of one of BharatBenz's trucks, I guess most of you aren't really familiar with them ;)

That's one of the only American Style "Slope-hood" trucks I like. I'm usually one for the straight blocks like the 379 or the W900(/L) but this is actually quite nice.

Yeah, the thing that annoys me about the sloped hood american trucks is that you just cannot see where your front end is!

If you're a good driver, you don't need to see where the front end is...
I'd rather see what's infront of me.
Well I'm pretty good at judging where my front end, front right corner etc. are on a European truck, don't know yet if I'll be good at that with American trucks.

We might get marker lights on the front of trucks as customization accessoires (like the marker lights on the front of the truck in Daramin's signature).

It's Optimus Prime!

I really hope ATS gets this truck. Seeing how these are the first pictures released of this truck I doubt it will be in for day 1 release of the game but a later add on hopefully.

Having this truck in the game should make it really easy to make an Optimus Prime mod. :)
