Role of cavalry in ww1 was huge. Although a cavalry charge was no longer a viable military tactic, horses were still invaluable as a way of transporting materials to the front. Military vehicles, as with any mechanised vehicles of the time, were relatively new inventions and prone to problems. Horses, along with mules, were reliable forms of transport and compared to a lorry needed little upkeep.

Military vehicles, as with any mechanised vehicles of the time, were relatively new inventions and prone to problems. Horses, along with mules, were reliable forms of transport and compared to a lorry needed little upkeep.
Such was the use of horses on the Western Front, that over 8 million died on all sides fighting in the war. Two and a half million horses were treated in veterinary hospitals with about two million being sufficiently cured that they could return to duty.

I can't wait to shoot a horse and see the message "hull damaged" pop out. Also for crewmen to try and fix it.

Crap aside, you could improve the animations a bit. Otherwise it looks good, good job.

Haha, great joke =) But horse is not based on vehicles - it is set up completely from scratch and it dies as horse, not as vehicle.

The horses had an important role in World War I (1914-1918), because these animals have numerous functions ranging in pulling artillery pieces, cars (ranging in pulling troops, provisions, supplies, ammunition and even injured).
There was also a function of the cavalry was ineffective in a war in which the ruler was the trenches and machine guns. cavalry acted somentes one or two years in the war, then was retired.

Sometimes I even think that if millions died in the great war fighters, imagine how many horses lost their lives to attack enemies and fatigue to carry guns and carriages
