Default The Importance of Infantry.

Infantry is the single most important element of Project Reality. Why? Infantry gets the job done. On all maps, a proper infantry squad is required to win. Even on large maps like Kashan Desert; especially on Kashan Desert. There are too many squads that don't get the objective done. It's in every server: three armor squads, five helo squads, two sniper squads. Most of which are petty one man squads. This is no way to play Project Reality! Infantry is the basis from which we have our vehicles. It's simple: armor was made to support infantry, helos were made to transport and take out infantry, fixed-wing aircraft were designed to take-out everything that supports infantry. So why the lack of infantry? Infantry wins battles, cut-and-dry.

Opinions?

And infantry can destroy everything with proper weapons.

Depends on the map. Last few games I played just now played out like that though. Even trying to run an Inf squad, you get some numbnut joining, grabbing an APC or armoured car, then going "hey, all you guys busy moving up to the objective and making a firebase, who wants to be my gunner!"

I played on Kozelsk this morning with an hilarious squad on TG.

We were Russians, and we were looking for enemies, (we were infantry)

So we suddenly find an abandoned enemy APC (The one with rockets) and i jump on it to drop my grenade thingy that destroys stuff.

Funny thing is, the rocket pod starts moving, and shooting, without hitting any off us, and the grenades does short work of the veichle to our amusement.

Infantry rocks... Had so much fun that round, although i only stayed there for like 50 min. When i was about to leave, i said, "Well i have reached my goal for the round, no deaths, you all have been dead, but i im still at zero" ratatata, a friendly 50 cal. sore through my head as we speed over the water in a boat.... EPIC... Im dead...




Infantry definatly gets the job done, all other assets are there to support the infantry.

I agree, thats why 99% of the times I lead only infantry squads. And imo too much assets == too much vbf2 style whoring

Except for Quinling 64.

I still think that map can be won without inf support.

haha yes that is true. [T&T] doombringer won that map when he was squad-leading me and some others. We used 3 FAV's and speed acros the map as chinese. Dodged tanks and stuff, capped the flags and won.

In PR maybe, but in real conventional warfare infantry on the frontlines are just cannon fodder imo. Doesn´t matter how good your infantry is, if you don´t have air superiority, your going to lose. Because in real life vehicles are deadly, and they don´t need a pair of binoculars that fire a sticky box to be effective.

But everything is equally important.

Oh, and vietnam isn´t really a conventional modern war.
