This might be an intended mechanic, but if it isn't (and it better not be an intended mechanic), my Armored Cars aren't spawning for a base defense mission.

A save would help.

Before or after the mission begins?

Here you go. I have two Armored Car*HMG, but they will not spawn in the mission. Just pass a couple hours on the Geoscape and the mission will begin.

Looks like the Armored Cars are not HWPs, but an "armor" that your soldiers can wear.

I mean, I can see why that is I guess, due to them not being autopiloted like vanilla HWPs? But it still seems a strange choice. I wouldn't have complained if they attacked my main base, but they attacked my secondary base, where I only have enough soldiers to man all my craft, and I thought I could use Armored Cars to defend it, because soldiers are such a big expense. I don't recall it saying anything in the description about them needing to be manned, but maybe that's just my remembrances from vanilla X-Com speaking. Still, thanks for the help. Guess I need all my bases to have 8 soldiers just to man an army of armored cars.

Again, like I said, secondary base, didn't bother with armor, used to them being unmanned in vanilla. Just put two and two together and assumed they would be unmanned. Probably should have been a bit suspicious when I didn't see them in the equipment section of the craft menu.

Other than they being called PILOTED VEHICLES, and follow up instructions regarding handling them? Sounds like you both never read it and never tried using them.

Lokk'Naar/Peasants/Slaves are cheap and I think  gals can't pilot the cars anyway are they are too big (the gals, not the cars).

You've got that right. Again, I just assumed they were like vanilla HWPs and that they didn't need a pilot. This is like, the third time that I thought a legitimate play mechanic was a bug. I love your game, but It just causes me constant brainfarts.

No, gals can definitely pilot HWPs. Probably very uncomfortable, but it's still doable.
