Wait....what?


So If a pilot is waiting at the runway for a jet to spawn, he will randomly start taking damage? Or if a heli gets shot down and the pilot escapes, he will just die after awhile anyway?


TBH if this is the case, I would rather the pilot just remain unarmed.... But, Oh well, not my decision.

The actual rule is (NOT QUOTED VERBATIM):

"Pilot kits may not occupy seats in an air vehicle EXCEPT for pilot and gunner positions. Doing so will result in black screen followed shortly by death." (No effect on extravehicular situations)

Before you claim that this makes air rescue impossible, remember that you can drop your kit before boarding the rescue chopper.

BTW IRL different nations have different rules and regulations regarding sidearms. German soldiers in Afghanistan for example are not allowed to leave camp without carrying their Rifle plus a sidearm.
This sidearm isnt always a pistol. Looking at recent footage from Afghanistan youll see a lot of Mp7s carried in addition to a Rifle.

That may be true, and also in real life a lot of equipment is differentiated between platoons units etc and PR just tries to find a realistic medium. Basically what we get is a rule of thumb for most countries armies etc as it would be unbalanced/too much work to differientiate to much.

No. Stop spreading false information. You cannot get in passenger seats inside aircraft, ground vehicles you can, because what harm can you do there?

wasnt expecting a g36+mp7 in the rifleman kit anyway
and PR still has the BF2 restriction of having only so many weaponslots which is another reason for not everybody in PR having sidearms.
But if you would throw away the knife and fight with the shovel (which isnt unrealistic) you would gain a slot for the mp7^^

In the real world, everyone carries a pistol or at least some type of sidearm in the case their primary weapon runs out of ammo or becomes combat deficient. This doesn't make any sense!! The question whether it's needed or not is up to the players, but reality says a pistol is a must have.
Military Advisors say no.



Pistols were removed from most classes based on feedback from people who are currently serving. So, yeah, locking this. Also, no suggestions outside of the suggestion forum.
