Unfortunately no. There have been some major issues on how the Equipment Data Tables info will be formatted (since tanks during the modern era seem to last longer yet, the ammo changes immensely with model changes and upgrades), how the modern values required major changes to equipment stat calculations and how the modern combat systems have significantly increased in complexity thus creating major headaches on how these systems will be represented in MP with our concept of keeping things simple yet as historically accurate as possible. Also, after February, there was a little shake up in the organization that had left this project in the air. We have been working very diligently getting the MP Core Rules (the base rules for ALL MP products) revised and then carrying forward these revisions to all of the other current Mein Panzer products. Unfortunately once again, the Modern Data Books and our American Battlelines products have been left hanging, for the time being, to ensure getting this extensive project completed. The light is near the end of the tunnel, however, and it looks like these product revisions will start seeing completion by the end of September to early October. So, hopefully, soon after their completion, we can get back into our much neglected "red-headed step children". :)Thanks for the inquiry and sorry for the extensive delay. It really does pain us all here in ODGW that this product is taking so darn long. But the modern era is very complex and is very taxing trying to get this right in our MP game system. We are working on it though.
