Since I don't know who to PM about such thing, so I decided to ask here.

I'm currently writing a novel and I'm coming a bit dry on OC units, may I use the units names from the RU Fed, ECA, and USA factions?

Im not sure how it goes but If you wont profit from it, It should be under fair use...

Lets wait for an offical reply, also why not post it to the fanfiction forums too?

Unit names are taken from real life for the most part. I don't see any reason you should be forbidden to use them.

If that helps in you decision, there is no "copyright" on the names of the characters. They can be used freely. There would have been a problem if you asked to use assets like models, textures, voiceovers etc.
Or else we could have sued Crate Entertainment for using the Sentinel as a playable class in their game biggrin.gif
