i think you should have added medic to this as well, its pretty stressful to do it effectively and not get killed

I'd consider it lumped under SM since the many classes,kits each all are equally as important (H-AT, Rifleman, Medic, Crewman,Engi)All of them have responsibilities to the squad afterall

Yeah but, a support gunner / grenadier hardly matches medic/HAT :P

I dont know. They have specific offensive roles afterall. Support gunners pin down bunkers and such. Grenadiers clear em. Still sounds pretty important. Different sorts of important I guess

Tank driver/gunner, because even when they're on VOIP, your partner is usually an idiot. I'd say gunning is the hardest, because your driver has so many ways to screw up. Not stopping to let you scan the area. Not stopping to let you shoot. Not moving on to the downhill portion of the ridge/hill/bump so that you can't get any shots. And my personal favorite: running scared at every lock on tone or RPG that hits you. IT'S AN MBT! YOU CAN TAKE A COUPLE HITS TO FIND OUT WHERE THE GUY IS! Especially when you have engineers close by.

I'd say SL, cause you don't absolutely need a commander, tank crewman, etc. However, if you happen to be the first name in your squad, guess what you are?

Transport chopper pilort is very stressful, especially if there are several other people in the chopper with you. My slow computer and lag spikes make it extremely scary. It is epecially annoying when I get disconnected. Every so often my mouse will freak out and start spinning around, causing me to crash and to be accused of n00bery. As you can imagine, I do not pilot transport helis much...

My #1 excuse for having a bad game:
"GET-OFF-OF-MY-KEYBOARD-YOU-STUPID-CAT!!!"

For me, the most stress i have had on this game was "armour driver"... .7 Challenger tank on Al Basrah 32v32 64 map... made a squad, some finish guy (from finland) joined, no-one wanted to engineer (bad luck of non-listeners joined squad, so i kicked them all after i got the tank as it was an armour squad not inf)... well i'll get to the point, basically i was driving he was gunning, no-body on seat 3.. this guy didn't really seem to listen, i used the attack marker to mark where infantry were and he just didn't move to it, eventually some with IEDs managed to crawl up on us and kill us, i was calmy saying on voip where they were and even said, look at the attack marker behind us... no reply, just waving his turrent around infront... saw a bomb car in distance too and his shot completely missed and 2 seconds later we die from IEDs and rpg

overall, i would say, being commander and losing due to no-one listening is stressful, and being a squad leader when members do not listen... also heli pilot is stressful when you get blamed for moving off after holding for 1-2secs (can't hold no more waiting for people to bail out due to the fact YOU WILL DIE) and they punish you when it comes up with TK... haha

Squadleader, since quite often I not only find myself leading my squad, I also find myself leading the commander since 9/10 times he doesn't know shit about what he is doing...

Anthony Lloyd, himself a former soldier in the British army and a Northern Ireland and Gulf War veteran:
"The men inside (the APC) might have been UN but they were playing by a completely different set of rules. They were Swedes; in terms of individual intelligence, integrity and single-mindedness I was to find them among the most impressive soldiers I had ever encountered. In Vares their moment had come."
